US Completed Requests / Owram Family - Now Complete(for now)

Link to what I thought was a completed topic.

 Quotes from jandishon

I am curious about  the posting: Oram, Jenne Sturdevant (1825-1907) d/o Sam Sturdevant (pg. two by Shellyesq) Maybe  someone out there can help me out.  I am not related but was passing through Toledo, Oregon on Aug. 3rd, saw the cemetery sign so stopped and took a few photos to post on line.  I found the marker for Jennie P. Owram but it was broken and there was one name I couldn't read.  I will type what was on the marker and leave a blank for the name I couldn't read in hopes that someone out there can fill in the blank.
Owram, Jennie P.  born Nancy Phedora Cra_______  or Gra____
Oct. 24, 1824 - April 26, 1907
Married "Elder" Lester Starr
   Lester Starr, Ina Starr Sturdevant
Married Joseph Owram
Minnie Alice Owram Murray

It appears as though Joseph was the second husband.  What is a mystery to me that I hope I can clear up is what her actual birth name was.  I did find a listing of burials in the Toledo, Oregon cemetery that lists her as Jenne Sturdevant Oram (Oram is spelled differently than the marker) with father as Sam Sturdevant.  But the marker says her birth name was something elise

It was unfortunate that the plastic marker was broken.  I tried to clean out some of the dirt but didn't want to damage it further.  The posting said her father was Sturdevant  but I wonder if he adopted her or if her birth surname could have been her mothers surname.  According to the marker her birth name was Nancy Phedora
Cra___ or Gra__.  Hopefully we can deterine what that name actually was.

Another interesting thing is that her daughter from Lester Small was Ina Starr Sturdevant

Any thoughts on what the surname could be ?
Would be interesting to see if the marker could be over a 100 yrs old

The Common Room / Whats in a name
« on: Friday 04 December 09 21:00 GMT (UK)  »
In the 1911 census the head of household with his own children was remarried to my Great grandmother with her own children.

He called his children "son" or "daughter" and hie wife's children" Stepson" and "Stepdaughter."

One of the stepdaughters had a daughter which he referred to as "Grand Daughter"


Would he have said this because it was his wife's  GrandDaughter or because she was a blood relative.

(No Names because of surviving relative)

Not too sure if a group photo taken late 1940's should be on this board, someone may recognise a relative


Hi all

Would really appreciate help with this one,clean up and colour if poss.

The original as nearly faded away since I scanned this so am loath to scan anymore old ones.

Question is should this happen  ??? or should I take a fresh photo of the original
