51315867 Permelia P. Searles
I photographed a headstone for Permelia Searles (1826-1920) at Woodlawn Cemetery in Toledo, Ohio. The headstone is next to Barton Smith and May Searles Smith. I saw that you have a record for her at a different cemetery. I wasn't sure how to proceed. I am not related to the family.
Please let me know if you will be changing the cemetery location or if I should add a record to Woodlawn?

RE: Bruno / Newburg
You are welcome. I did the Bruno research for my close cousin, Marty Bruno. The memorials were easy since I live close to the cemeteries they are buried in. I have all my Bruno research on
If you do not have a membership, I can send you an invite.

RE: Lincoln # 85451996
Walter Lincoln was born in 1852. The father you suggested, Frank was born in 1854 - two years after Walter was born. The mother you suggested, Fannie was born in 1861 - nine years after Walter was born. I rejected the correction because it was not possible for Frank and Fannie to be Walter's parents.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial #49690792 James Nash DeWitt
Thank you!

Re the Capwell connection, do you know any details about Julia Capwell's marriages? She married James Nash DeWitt in 1893 but it would appear she was married first to his brother George Harmer DeWitt in 1879. I've always been curious as to what might have transpired there.

Find A Grave Memorial #49690792 James Nash DeWitt
Hello! I was wondering if you would allow me to attach (with appropriate credit given) your headstone photo from this memorial to my tree on Ancestry?

Thanks for considering my request. :)

Sally, thank you for the pretty picture of the Effners grave. I appreciate the time and steps you took to find them! Would you please add the photo to John's memorial?
BIG Thanks, Debra
