Please transfer Richard T.Denson
I was wondering if you would be so kind to transfer my husband's brother (Find A Grave Memorial# 25252725) to us.
Thank you!

I was wondering how you came by the maiden name of Summer? I see the 1870 census listed her with her parents; John Holdren and Martha Loyd.

- a cousin

Brownington/Maplewood Cemeteries
Hi, Bob. Perhaps you can answer a question for me. You added the photo for the entrance to Maplewood Cemetery, Brownington, Henry County, Missouri, so maybe you can help. Are the Brownington Cemetery and the Maplewood Cemetery one and the same? Looking at the maps for both cemeteries, they appear to be in the same location or maybe adjacent to each other. The GPS coordinates are almost the same. I have a relative who has been added to BOTH cemeteries on Find A Grave (confusing), and I would like to know if there are two cemeteries or one with possibly a name change, one known as one name or the other by locals, or if there is only one cemetery and the two should be merged on Find A Grave. Will appreciate anything you know about it/them.
Thanks, Carolyn

William Knaus
On William Knaus you have George T. Knaus as a son of Malvina Frances Oglesby Knaus. That is not right his birth date is after her death. His mother was Elizabeth Ann Harris. Per your Note.

John Milton Kingery Parents
John Milton Kingery's dates are correct. He was born in Paulding Co., Ohio and died in Grant Co., IN. His wife was Melvina "Ada" Adeline Holdren. I noticed somebody had her surname as Summers, which is incorrct. Frank R. Kingery was only one of two children, Samuel breing his only full blood brother.
His mother died in Oakwood, Ohio while his father died in Carroll Co., Missouri. After the death of his mother in Feb 1851, his father relocated to Missouri and re-married the same year in Dec. From this marriage were seven more children. His grandmother is buried in Prairie Chapel in Paulding Co., Ohio.

I hope this helps you. should you require more information, you can email me directly.

John Milton Kingery Parents
The parent who are linked to JOHN MILTON KINGERY are NOT his parents.
This is my lineage and I have the research to back this claim. I would appreciate it if the links and comments suggesting these are his parents were removed. Thank You.

Mrs. Struther Swearingen
Unless I miss my guess, Mrs. Struther Searinger was Josephine "Josa" L Swearingen, daughter of Elimelich Swearingen and Amanda Wilds.

You will find some of this guy's records under "Lemuel", Swearingin, and Swearinger! And his wife was Amanda Wilds, daughter of Robert Wilds and Frances Fugett. Happy to share family info! I descend from Amanda Wilds' kid sister, Jeanetta Wilds (first married John Pile, second married Asa Turner).

I dont believe you have the correct parentage of John Milton Kingery. I would like to correspond with you in hope of straightening out this delima.
I would like to know more about John, father of John Milton Kingery.
