Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have a large database of names at North Providence Ridge Cemetery, Will County, Illinois, particularly members of the KURKAMP, POHLMAN, MYERS and other allied families of Jackson Township. I also have connections to Brown Church Cemetery, near Elwood, Illinois and a large number of NOEL and BROWN family members interred there. I may be able to assist those looking for ancestors buried at either of these locations. Maternal line includes such western Pennsylvania surnames as CUSICK, ANDREW, HOOVER, HUTZLEY, WITHERUP and PHIPPS. I can be reached at my posted email address.

RE: Elenore Myrtle Pohlman Moyle
Hi there Bruce, I have added her obituary and her husband's obituary. I also requested for a connection to their son Harold W. Moyle who died in 1999 in Gridley.
Have a great day.

RE: Eliza Brydon
Married name is what I think it should be also. It would also be much easier if they could just transfer the memorial to you.

RE: Nellie J. Gurney Myers
Thank you. The records are fixed now, if admin. deletes Leona's bio indicating that Eliza Ballantyne is wife of Gurney. Your link could have stayed, but it was easier to relink Nellie than correct the link for each of her siblings.

Eliza Brydon/Eliza Gurney
Hi Bruce. Just realized that Leona had 2 memorials for Eliza Brydon w/ same vitals. Nellie is linked to #6300996 but the other children to #6300993. Sending edits that will correct the vitals & links.

That is great news, about Della! Congratulations, and great work.

Thank you, also, for the kind words, and thanks for all you do on the site also.

Grateful for the folks here who see it as being about the deceased having a memorial.

RE: Emma Bostwick
Hi, Bruce - I actually got onto this research by doing a memorial on gentleman who died here recently and I was acquainted with his grandson, got interested as I did the memorial, and kept going! I got to Clara, the half sister and perhaps some others when I stopped; I need to look at my notes. The Bostwicks are and old and well thought of family here. You know how it is --you find pieces of the puzzle and just can't stop! I'll let you know if I have anything else in my notes. Had you found that old history that I forwarded to you? Best to You - Nancy

RE: Emma
Bruce, I'll try to backtrack and see where I found it spelled that way and just what document it was. I found some old records online. I was doing some research for someone else --no relation to me. I'll try t get back to you if I can find it. I don't know if you have all the following. It does indicated that "Virgie" Bostwick (1890-1916) was VIRGIA (perhaps Virginia) Speck, and I found that she was probably from around Coryell County, but had no further luck on her. She is the wife of Fred Bostwick but I can't even find the marriage records. Nancy

The following information comes from =Memorial and Biographical
History of McLennan, Falls, Bell and Coryell Co, TX=, (c) 1893.
Page 764 has a sketch on Harmon G. BOSTWICK, dec'd, son of John
and Catherine (Butler) BOSTWICK. The father was born 6 Apr 1785
in New Milford, CT and was a saddle and harness maker in early
life and later a farmer. After his marriage, he settled in PA,
and then moved to OH and later Clark Co, IL, where he died 13
Nov 1849.

Harmon G. BOSTWICK was born in Pike, Bradford Co, PA 25 Jul 1814.
He moved to OH as a boy and later to Knox Co, IL and Peoria, IL.
He married in Peoria 27 Apr 1837 to Mary E. Hord and they had one
child, Cyrene, who died at the age of 7 months. Mary died
6 Jul 1839 and on 13 Sep 1840, Mr. Bostwick married Mary Ramsey
and they had 2 children, Sarah Catherine (dec'd), wife of E.H.
Carter, and Harmon G. The family moved to Texas in 1854. Harmon
G. died 11 Dec 1890.

Harmon G., son of above Harmon, was born 22 Aug 1843 in
Farmington, Knox Co, IL. He enlisted 7 Jun 1862 as a private in
Co E, 15th TX Vol. Infantry. He married in Waco, TX 10 Dec 1885
to Mabel Emma, daughter of Anson and Mary Shelley. Mabel was born
in St. Paul, MN 24 Sep 1856 and came to Texas with the J.S. Taft
family in 1875. The Bostwicks are Democrats and Presbyterian.
