|Bio and Links|
Ever since trying to 'prove' our family's relationship to Daniel Boone (not proven, my brothers were really ticked) I have been interested in family history. I'm very involved in the Orr Reunion Association -- descendants of Paul Orr and Isabelle Boyd -- which meets the first Sunday of August at a church in rural Mount Vernon, MO. This batch of Orrs came from Aghadowey Parish in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. This is near Coleraine. I'm happy to take photos.|

Dear Elaine, you maintain a memorial for John J. Williams and I found a wonderful passage from his diary that he wrote. I hope you can use the above link to go there. It is on the illinoisgenweb.org site. If you have any trouble, let me know and maybe I can cut and paste it to the memorial. Blessings, Lily

Thank you so much Elaine, you've greatly helped me put together what was, until a few days ago, an unknown part of our family tree! Looking further I did find a few other children of Christian and Elizabeth in different parts of Iowa. According to the church register all of their children, except Mary, were born in France. If you happen to have any Mennonite ancestors who came from the Montbeliard area I can highly recommend this two volume set which was just published in March. Between it and kind people like you, who've taken the time to do research and provide photos, a lot of family mysteries are going to be solved :)

|Ken Townsend||RE: J. Joe Houghton|
I do not personally know him, but I can tell you that this cemetery is the largest in Jackson county and if he died in Altus it is about 95 per cent sure he was buried here. All my folks are buried here and they all lived in and around Altus all of their life. I wish I could tell you more, but I'm betting that if he died in Altus Oklahoma, then this would be him, especially if the dates are close. Wish I could give you more info, but eventually, something has to turn up.
Thank you for adding a picture of him and his wife on his memorial. I had never seen a picture of them. Thank you for sharing!

I am asking to copy the headstone photo of "Coday" with Henry B. Coday (my 1st cousin twice removed) for use in my Family tree and Hanna N. Coday.
Thank for posting picture and for your consideration of my request.
