St. Johns Derbyshire
I am hoping you would be able to clarify whether the St. John the Baptist Chelmorton, in Derbyshire which you added memorials to, is the same as St John the Baptist Croxall, also in Derbyshire. The history of Croxnall indicates there is a 'tumulus or barrow' on the south side of the church which is consistent with the cemetery description which indicates this feature, but I would like to be sure this is also Croxall before I add a memorial.

Mary E Colwell corrections
Mary Ann "Polly" (Harter) Colwell's obituary and her tombstone are inaccurate. Her obituary and tombstone state that her name was Mary E. Colwell. That was the name of Boseal Colwell's first wife, whose name was Mary (Elliott) Colwell who was born around 1805 and died around 1833. Boseal Colwell, spouse of both women, was married twice. Mary "Polly" Ann (Harter) Colwell was the second wife and she died on August 28, 1891. The best estimate of Mary Ann Harter's age is from the 1850 and 1860 censuses which show she was born in 1814. That would mean was 77 when she died on August 28, 1891. There was confusion on the part of the author of the obituary and the person who authorized the tombstone because both of Boseal Colwell's wives were named Mary. All of Boseal Colwell's children were born before 1847, so Mary Ann "Polly" Colwell could not have married around 1850 as per the obituary since she would have been 69. She married around 1835 at the age of 21 and was the mother of six children. The previous six children were the children of Boseal's first wife Mary (Elliott) Colwell who married around 1822 and who died at age 33. Mary Ann (Harter) Colwell's parents were married in Montgomery County, Ohio in 1807 per county marriage records and they continued to live in that area until land was purchased in Amanda Twp, Allen Co., OH in 1826. Mary Ann (Harter) Colwell was probably born in Montgomery County, Ohio or neighboring Preble County, Ohio in 1814.

RE: Askins - search by number
Done. I just broke my arm, but I sent edits to connect them to their daughters. I don't know what's going on with this family, but Abraham's father, Thomas & his siblings & their parents Posey & Nancy. I think Thomas, Leona, etc. were all buried somewhere on their farms in Putnam or Allen Co. & that's why we can't find them--the parents & siblings, Marcus b.1824, Jacob b.1808, Edward b.1813, etc. They first lived in Fairfield Co. Thank you for your help.

RE: Leona Fairbanks
That's fine, but I don't think I can access her unless she is connected to her daughter since her grave is unknown. Can you do that
