RE: Tallmans & Pratts
Hi Joan,
Such a coincidence that you wrote this week as I just discovered The Forest Lawn Cemetery website this past weekend. It is great and a wonderful resource. I found a lot of information that I was unable to locate before. I wish every cemetery would do this. The Lot Registers and Burial Records are available for each name just about. Dorothy Hall is listed on the Lot Register owned by Hattie E. Pratt. She died on 3/25/1915. It says her parent(s) is "Jos A Pearl" or "Jas" (maybe short for James E Pearl?) or it could be Jas E & Pearl. Not sure who any of them are or where they fit in.

There is a Mary E. Sweet listed on there who died in 1898 in Colorado. I am not positive who she is but I think she must be a sister to someone. Also in that lot are Charles and Carlton Pratt, Hattie Burns, Annette Davies, Annetta and Leonard S Spire.

I also found Annetta A. Kline who was the daughter of Aikens (Akin) and Sarah Tallman. Akin and his alleged father, William, are the two that I am trying hard to find information on. This verifies that Annetta was his daughter. I found her two marriages and all her children, most of whom did not have children. I am still working on one of them who lived in Michigan. Hoping to find a descendant alive who may have some information other than what is on Ancestry.

Let me know what you think of the Forest Lawn site.

Best, Kris

Davies, Burns, Tallman
Hi Joan,
Couple more things...
I have a memorial for Jimmie Davies whose headstone states he was the son of Nettie and James Davies. I linked Nettie to him. He was only three when he sad.
Do you know where James Davies is buried?
Also, do you know the name of Hattie's husband Mr. Burns and where he is buried?
You asked me a few months ago if I had any info on their family, and yes I do. Nettie and Hattie were sisters. Their siblings were Mary Jane Tallman b. 1846, Aikens A. Tallman b. 1848, Ira G. Tallman b. 1855, Sarah Tallman Flinn (her memorial is on here and I have sent links for the parents to the manager, so she may eventually appear on your memorials) and Frederick Tallman, b. 1859. I am working on all of them but it is a slow process. The Tallman family is HUGE!
FYI, I am a direct descendant of a Tallman line. The father of those mentioned above (Ira) was my great great uncle. His brother, Perry, was my great great grandfather. I am working on the Tallman line as I am searching for information on that line and my direct ancestor who was a Patriot. I really want to apply to the DAR, but I am missing one piece!
In the meantime, I am filling in as many blanks as possible because I LOVE genealogy!

Pratt, Tallman and Davies
Hi Joan,
I have finally had a bit of time to work on this again, even though it is Thanksgiving Day! I found that there are two memorials for Hattie on this site. One is 72328293 and the other is with you as manager 69088060. I sent an edit with the links to her parents, Ira and Sarah, on yours. I just wanted to let you know that there are two out there.
I will go to Nettie's and send an edit to add the same parents on.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Nettie A. Davies 69088593
Hi Joan,
Do you know if Nettie A. Davies was her married name or maiden? I am looking for a woman by that name who died in 1862 whose maiden name was Tallman. This woman had a sister (Hattie E. Tallman) who married a Pratt, so I am wondering if you are related and that I have the correct family. Will wait to hear from you. Thanks!

I don't know if this one is of the same lineage. Your Minks parents were Albert & Clara. I have been able to locate both parents of the one I have listed and posted to his page.

No relation at all. I was helping with an edit of that cemetery.

Joan I did not follow the thread but Sarah Bidwell was my great-great-great-great grandmother - her daughter Harriet Frances married Watson Hayes, whose son Lee Hayes was my great-great-grandfather, whose son Edward Lee Hayes was my great-grandfather, whose daughter Monica Hayes was my grandmother, whose daughter Mary Lee Moriarty DeMeo was my mother.

Leora's mother
Hi Joan,
I put a picture of Grandma Lee's mom's headstone on here. If you want to link it the number is: 83300776 Her name is Lowella Bayley Mundon.

I would add it but you can't link from parent to child. Only from child to mother or father.

Thank you for posting the pictures!
