I have been searching for my Family for 10 years.My Husband would go along with me to the cemetery. I take a lot of tombstone picture and put them on Find a Grave so that other people can find there family member.

RE: Daniel Horney #24814090
Joan I appreciate the offer; the Horney family is not mine and I doubt I would ever live long enough to get them all straightened out. I am trying to find a specific "Daniel Horney" and this person is not he. The Horneys, like so many early Americans used about 20 given names for their sons and continued to do so through the mid-1850s. The one I am trying to find is a big part of a family related brick wall.

Thanks so much for writing back so quickly!

Daniel Horney #24814090
Hey Joan

I am working on the Horney family and found a discrepancy you may want to correct. Catherine Ann Howe Horney #24814135, wife of Daniel Horney #24814090, died 4 October 1915 [there is a copy of her death certificate at the memorial]. She is identified as married and the individual providing information is "Daniel Horney".

Daniel Horney's memorial[which is given as 26 July 1913] also has a copy of his death certificate. At the time of his death he was "widowed". The death certificate provides his date of death as 26 Feb 1918 [not 1913]. There is not a picture of the gravestone so I do not know if it has this date or not. I tend to think the 1918 date is the correct one given the information on the 1915 death certificate of his wife.

Thanks for all your hard work; someday I may get this family straightened out [my problem, not yours ;) ]

2 Pioneer Cemeteries
Hi Joan and again thank you for all your great work. Would it be possible to separately identify the 2 Pioneer Cemeteries at Port Jefferson & the one at Plattsville (rather than just Shelby County)to avoid any confusion as to who is where. It appears the one in Port Jefferson is pretty much just a jumble of stones moved off their original locations. It appears to be well outlined on Google Maps. Have county records preserved the entire area there? Dave Flomerfelt

Charles Scherer and family
I'm trying to locate a couple of people.You did a memorial for Charles Scherer, I'm looking for his wife Caroline and her great aunt Charlotte Myers(Meyers,Meirs,or Mayers) the spelling is in doubt, but I think the first is correct. Do you know if there are interment records available and if so where can they be found.

Date Discrepancy
On your monument #61037709 (Julia Beulah "Beuley" Norcross Frazier) you have linked Amy Beck NORCROSS as her mother. However, Amy apparently died in 1778, about 12 years before Julia was born in 1790.

I am looking for Elizabeth McClintock. She first married Isaac Milton Hanes. He died in Civil War, then she married William C. Baker. Any help would be appreciated.
