Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've lived in the same small town all my life. I'm married and have 2 daughters and 6 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter. Love family research and sharing what I have found

Just a note: The reason I have so many "memorials managed" is because a friend asked for help maintaining the memorials! Will transfer, if they are not related to myself or my husband.

RE: Loy Family
Thanks! BTW, if you come across these Hubbards in your family, they married Loy descendants, too:

Campbell County, TN area:
Niami Hubbard md. ca. 1917 John Sheridan Carroll
Flossie Hubbard md. John Lewis Kitts (b. 1896)

Alamance County, NC:
Mary Steel Hubbard md. 1943 William Duncan Loy

Orange County, CA:
Clinton S. Hubbard (1859 NYŚ1944 CA) md. Mary Jane (Overton) Waggener. (Mary, a Loy descendant, was first married to her distant cousin Peter C. Waggener, another Loy descendant)

1860 New Madrid County, MO census, Loy-descended Catherine Frances (Pryor) Ellis Tomkin (b. 1838 KY) and her second husband Redman Tompkin have these Hubbards in their household: Jno T. HUBBARD 28 KY, Martha A. HUBBARD 20 TN, Wm HUBBARD 38 KY.

RE: 17629029-Lathrop Cemetery
No problem. At time I submitted note, either there hadn't been edit submission button, or I just hadn't noticed it yet. Could you change "Anthony" to "Yancy" on memorial bio? Louisa had nickname "Eliza" as in case of many Louisas in that era. (Something all genealogists should note. Back then, Louisa was pronounced "Lou-eye-sa", not like pronunciation of "Louisa" in "Louisa May Alcott." So one can see how Eliza and old pronunciation of Louisa sounded similar.) Yancy and Louisa are buried in Barnesville Cemetery, in Clinton Co., MO but apparently haven't been recorded in Find A Grave. I used to correspond with Will's widowed daughter-in-law Velma in the 1980s.

BTW, Will's father Yancy is somehow related to me, born in same area of NC my Loys are from, and apparently descends from my ancestor's first cousin George Loy, I theorize a grandson. Still trying to find which son was Yancy's father. There was slightly older Yancy Loy, also of NC, who migrated to TN about time cousin George did, but in nearby county. His descendants and I are perplexed of his ancestry, too, but maybe another grandson or son from George's second marriage. George's daughter gave her son middle name "Yancy," these being only times name Yancy appears in my Loy family.

My grandfather
Thank you for documenting and memorializing my grandfather, Christopher "Alfred" Farnan. I get random thoughts about him, like tonight, and search his name just to see what I can find. He was my best friend and I can't believe I'm just now finding this website with all of his information. I miss him so much. God bless you!

RE: Frederick Memorial Cemetery, Tillman county, Oklahoms
You're welcome. I was on a trip to the area when I decided to stop at the cemetery. It was a blazing-hot day and I photographed as many headstones as I could.

I noticed you had a question about Mary G. Bechyne Duncan. She was my Great Aunt. Her husband was Emery Duncan. Emery's first wife was Mary Frank Soutter (1937).They divorced in 1940, and Emery married my Great Aunt in 1942. If you need more info, see my Ancestry family tree under Reese Family tree.

I could not find Ella. She was not buried next to Joseph. Next time I'm there I will look again.
