Catherine Pence Weaver
I think you may have mixed up Oscar Orlando Weaver (Find A Grave# 79586798) mother. You will probably have to change his mother to Hester Bowers Weaver to fix it.

Urias Weaver
Hi Joan, Catherine Pence Weaver is Urias's mother, not wife. On Urias's memorial, you have her listed as his wife

I am helping a friend of mine search for her family. I think you might be related. Her name is Rose Marie Smith (Murray). Her father and his older brother and sister were put into an orphanage in Ohio when their mother, Margaret STudevant died at the age of 27. Their father had died three years earlier. His name was John A. Murray. His name was changed at the orphanage. His birth name was Patrick Sarsfield Murray. She doesn't know much about her dad because he died when she was only a few years old. If you can help, I would be so appreciative.

Hi Joan,

I'm wondering if you are related to Jessie and James Locker; you mentioned that you started this by researching your family and they were from the Sidney area originally.

Cecil Cemetery
Hi Joan,

I see that you posted a picture of an infant child Cecil of R and P, died 1846, buried at the Cecil Cemetery. I visited this cemetery yesterday and couldn't find the stone. The stone appears to be unreadable. Do you remember seeing an inscription?

RE: elliott
Thanks Joan,
We have been in contact with a Dawn Carnes who has helped us immensely. She has given us marker location and will attempt to send photo once snow clears.
Does your family friend have any additional photos or info on hand?
