You have recorded Emily as the wife of Isiah Lowe. In reviewing census reports, they were brother and sister. Thought you would want to know

Roy Van Patten Roach-68521202
OmaHanke-do you have anymore information on Roy Roach-is their any information you have that indicates his parents? There is a Roy V. Roach-66253432 that was born 1865 and died 1933. There seems to be some confusion these two are the same person.
I am doing research on Roy's wife Estella Ann Venters Roach-68521174.
Thanks for all your contributions to Find A Grave.

Dear Mary, Thank you for leaving a DAR flower for Luella. I am attempting to identify all women who moved from Iowa so I can leave something for them and it is so nice to see that someone else has honored their members.

George Cockerill
George Cockerill Find A Grave # 85052060

Hi, I am a flexible person and it is up to you whether you want to add the information I found on George Cockerill.

I know the headstone states year of death as 1929, but I stumbled upon his obituary and then also checked the 1930 Census. In the 1930 Census, George is widowed living in the Chicago Precinct, Elkhorn Village, Douglas County, Nebraska. George is a watchman for the railroad. Every census record from 1880 on states he was born in England with the immigration year of 1872 [1900 & 1910 census plus has the document].
Lastly in the 1930 census his grandson, Chester Garner, is living with him (Age 13). Chester's mother is Gertrude May (Cockerill) Garner-Peterson at this Find A Grave # 42004193. I have put in a request to Daisy Piper to link Gertrude to her parents. Furthermore, I have put in a request with jeanpiclewis to link Chester Garner (Find A Grave # 134644075) to be link to his wife and mother. She (jeanpiclewis) has a note on Chester's Find A Grave of "he was predeceased by his wife, Jacqueline; and his parents, William Garner and Gertrude Mae (Cockerill) Garner."

Here's the June 5, 1930 obituary :

The World-Herald : Omaha, Nebraska, Thursday, June 5, 1930, page 23

COCKERILL -- George, West Dodge St., age 66 years, survived by four daughters, Mrs, Kates Mullendoor, Fremont, Neb.; Mrs. N. M. Alling, Sacramento, Cal.; Mrs. Mary Petersen, and Mrs. Ollie Jensen of Omaha; three sons, W. N. Coley and Walter Cockerill, Omaha and Earl Cockerill, Elkhorn, Neb.

Funeral services at Spring Grove church, 2 p.m., Friday. Interment Brittin cemetery. Crosby mortuary service.

Oh the obituary age is wrong. If he was 66 years old that would put him at around the birth year of 1864. The 1900 census divulges Aug 1851, which is close with the headstone having 1850.

Thank you for all your excellent work over the years!

Hi OmaHanke,

Would you please be so kind as to remove the stone photo from # 42871589 and add it to # 30798087 ? It is a situation where these are duplicates, and the one with your photo will be the one deleted. That way, your name can appear in the credits.

If you would be so kind, please touch base with me to inform me of disposition so I can proceed with the dupe removal and any other edits.

Thanks much,
