John Chambers
William Thomas CHAMBERS Death Date
I have a conflict on his death date. You show (Memorial# 126457601) 1881, but the 1885 Fairfield, Cedar, Iowa, United States Census shows him still living with his sister Margaret BRUNER. Can you help clear this up? Thanks!

John W Ploof
As a matter of interest, Irene WinnefredWright Richter, was the G G Grandaughter of John W Ploof, who went to Nebraska after the Civil War. If you go on find-a-grave to a Maple Hill Cemetery, Eaton County, Michigan, you will find the grave of Lucinda Ploof, his mother. From there you will find his father, siblings, etc. if you wish, you can trace Lucinda's family all the way back to the Massachusetts Bay Colony, arriving in 1640. John Ploofs father and four brothers served in the Civil War. The father returned crippled and blind. Of the sons, only John survived. Find Lucinda's sister, Mary Hubbard, and you will find that their father served in the war of 1812 and their grandfather, who raised them, served in the American Revolution. These are interesting people. Contact me, if you wish. Robert Phillips

Della Carr Wright
I have been researching Della's Carr family inasmuch as my grandmother was her niece and guess that makes me Della's gr-gr niece. In any event, I have searched tirelessly for Della's mother, Eliza Hall Carr. The last child, Harry, was born in 1876; the family was living in Page County, Iowa, near Coin, in the 1880 census and the dad, S.P. was listed as a widower, so Eliza died sometime between 1876 and 1880. I have even hired a genealogist to research and of course no death records in Iowa prior to 1880. If you have done any research, have you come up with anything? Thanks for your response.

Orlin Elmer Lawson
Hi Janet, We have Orlin Lawson married to Ida Borseth in 1935 and 2nd wife as Adeline Everson in 1951 per family info but we haven't found them on find a grave yet. Just don't know about Vivian Wetherby; if you have more info or her memorial number, we will check on that. Orlin was our first cousin but we didn't know him; we live on the east coast.

Baby Nagel
Hello, Information for both children came from the Maloney Funeral Home. At this time it is not online. Also, since these two memorials do not follow the transfer guideline, I would rather not transfer. If you have extra information, I would be happy to add it.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

RE: Raymond A. Ploof
Please go to find a grave, click the "Help with find a grave" link on the left column and learn how to request a photo, how to ask for info to be added and how to request linking of family members. Also, read the part on transfers and who are direct relatives.

I know this sounds picky but there is good reason. I'm dealing with over 10,000 memorials. I get multiple requests every day and if not done the find a grave way, it takes a lot of my time.
