Re: Alvy Death Certificate
I uploaded a photo of it on his memorial. Not very good copy, very faded on one side.

Re: Elbina (McGlaughlin Stout
I have checked also the 1900 census, it also has birth as Nov,1858 like the death certificate all censuses also have her race as white. She is listed with her parents in Harrison Twsp,Wells Co. IN in 1860

Theod S Mc Laughlin M 39 Ohio
Martha Mc Laughlin F 21 Ohio
James Mc Laughlin M 4 Indiana
Alvina A Mc Laughlin F 1 Indiana
Samantha A Ruple F 13 Indiana

All are listed as white, Theodore's occupation was Physician. Theodore died in the Civil War 29,Mar,1862 Benton,MO. Theodore & Martha were married 24,Feb,1853 Jay Co. IN. In 1870, her mother Martha is remarried to Jacob Sutton, they married 17,Mar,1864 Jay Co. IN & has 2 children born so far to this marriage. Again all are listed as race white.

1870 Pike,Jay,IN

Jacob Sutton M 43 Ohio
Martha Sutton F 32 Ohio
Alice M Sutton F 4 Indiana
Ida C Sutton F 2 Indiana
James S Mclaughlen M 14 Indiana
Elbina A Mclaughlen F 11 Indiana

Albina's mother's parents were Salem Green b. OH & Margaret A Askins b. Ireland, they married 1,Oct,1837 Meigs Co. OH. All this information came from documents you can view through The death certificate for Albina I got through which you have to subscribe to, that is why I posted it to her memorial as documentation & to help document information. you can view for free but have to register. These are all digitized records not transcriptions. The evidence is all there & it seems there is no native american. Sometimes stories past down can be construed different ways, that is why documentation needs to be done. I hope you get some use out the information I am sending.

RE: Lucas
Yes, She (Emily) would be my 3rd great aunt. I had a mystery to solve with her, because her sister-in-law was also an Emily Lucas and their identities were mixed up in a lot of research. Thanks for replying so quickly and happy holidays to you!

Addie Barndollar isn't buried in Hopewell Cemetery. She's buried in Gardens of Memory in Muncie. Photos of her headstone are posted there. Thanks, Judy

Thank you!

Thanks for the recent transfer of Esther.

In reference to the other matter of a person we were discussing, send me an email so I can give you an update on the person. Much to tell.

Thanks again! Linda

Vivian Mae Allison

Are you interested in writing a bio for Vivian and telling the story of the dollhouse memorial? Since it is listed on findagrave's main page under 'Interesting Monuments' it seems to be getting a lot of flower tributes.

It would be nice to have the story about how many people have been caretakers over the years and how it was renovated and landscaped by complete strangers.

If you don't have the time to write anything and hyperlink to her ancestors- perhaps you could transfer it (unless she is a relative you don't want to part with).

Thank-you for your note. I am not a family member, just a friend. Though, I will forward you note to my friend. Warm regards.

Please keep my family in your prayers following the loss of my uncle Franklin Rogers, who passed away yesterday from cancer. If you have time I would appreciate virtual flowers for his Find A Grave memorial 128627148. I am very blessed to have my friends on this site. Thank you,

RE: Yaryan
Dianna, Thank you so much for that great story about Glenn!
It appears there is a mistake in the way the cemetery is listed on Find A Grave. "Oaklawn Cemetery Gardens" has only 5 entries, whereas "Oaklawn Memorial Gardens" has 6,589 entries, so I would think it must be that "Oaklawn Cemetery Gardens" should not have been created on Find A Grave as a separate cemetery. In any case, Glenn has entries under both cemetery names, and there should not be any such duplications. Let me know what you think should be done to correct this.
Thanks again,
