RE: Ora Mae Beckwith
Apparently baby Henry died in August 1880, so may not have been enumerated in the 1880 census at all.
Also, yesterday I found the probate record for Ora's son Howard Dickerson, 1926. Since he died intestate and had no wife or children, the papers ( show the heirs to his property as his father Orman W. Dickerson and his mother Ora B. Carns, at two separate addresses. Obviously they had divorced and Ora had remarried. One online tree says Ora died in 1927, but I have still have not found a burial place for her.

RE: Ora Mae Beckwith
Thanks for the info on Ora Mary Beckwith. Yes, I had her in my database but had not entered a bio for her mother yet. Do you know where Ora is buried?
PS, yes I am related to this family through the Ottos. Judith Celia Otto was the sister of my ancestor Silas P Otto.

RE: Dallastine

I have read a 15-page story on by Daniel and Glen Lionberger. It mentions that Samuel married "Dallas" after his wife, Sarah Larimer died but has no further mention of her. My data shows the marriage was in 1901 when Dallas was 57 and Samuel was 67.

We know from her headstone, that Dallestina died in 1929, and was buried in Bloomingburg, Ohio. I can find no Ohio death record for her and wonder if she died in Kearney, Nebraska. Nebraska does not make it easy to check death records.

Perhaps your more lengthy book will shed some light on what happened after Samuel died. Did Dalles live with her step-children or possibly one of her siblings? I'm glad she had an unusual name!

Boice links
Only the manager of the memorial can link parents.
YOU are the manager of Elbert and Alfred, if you want them linked to their father, I would suggest you look in your edit tab. There are 2 requests there to link them.

RE: Dallastine Thornton
Hi Carolyn,

Dallastine (I find her Find A Grave Memorial# 82826806). I think you sent me a different number of another of your relatives, #33955243.

She is my 2nd great aunt, the sister of my great grandfather, John Ross Gordon. So she and I share some blood. If you have a photo of her, please add it. I think I would like to keep her memorial as I walked all over that cemetery in Bloomingburg looking for her!

Please feel free to send along any other data for me to add.

Best regards,

Wade Davis

Unknown burials
I agree.
I have spent a great deal of time merging, and cleaning up your unknown burials.
If you do not know where someone is actually buried, please don't create an unknown memorial.
Find a grave is a grave registration site, not a family tree.

unknown burials
You created a cemetery named "None" in Clark County. This is against Find A Grave rules - never create a cemetery named Unknown or any similar variation. This website is for recording the final resting place, not for guesswork. Please delete this memorial until such time as you know the exact place of burial. Thank you.

You also have several "Burial Unknown" memorials which need to be deleted as well.

It was sent to me via corrections through Find A Grave. I will see what I can do about correcting it.
