Hi David
I am Dennis Dodd and I had contacted you before to transfer me my 3rd Grt Grandfather, Dr.
Stephen Dodd. Would you also transfer his wife, Phebe (Babbitt) Dodd to me, as there are some additions and changes on that page I would like to make. I was new to find a grave at that time or would have had you transfer her at that time also. Thanks, Dennis D. Dodd

Samuel McClain parentage
I am looking for the parents of Samuel McClain (b. 1756, d. 1820), and see you have Charles McClain and Lydia Cheesman as his parents. I have found this line on, but the Samuel listed there as their son was listed as being born in 1808, too late for my Samuel. I see your name is Cheesman, is the source of this information through your own knowledge of your family history, or through some public documents? I am trying to sort out this puzzle. thanks.

Daniel L. Wilson Parents?

I am working on a brick wall of Daniel L. Wilson, b. 9 Sep 1872 either White or Cass Co., IN; d. 22 Feb 1936, Cass Co., IN.; married Lillie Rinehart 28 Feb 1894, Cass Co., IN. My only clue is the 1900 US Census where he states that his parents were born in OH. I found your work on the Wilson Family Cemetery in Cass Co., IN and noted in your bio that you are working on that line, along with many others. If you have any information that be of help I would be most grateful. Daniel is my wife's great grandfather.

RE: Cheesman Families Reunion site
Hi David, I appreciate your thinking of me for the reunion but I don't do facebook or twitter. I am related to the Cheesman's. Louisa Cheesman daughter of Peter T Cheesman and Elizabeth Jackson is my 3rd great grandmother. Louisa was married to Charles Harper, my 3rd great grandfather. My husband is related to the Cheesman's also. His first cousin, Peter Franklin Cheesman, son of Squire Lennen married Mary Ellen Cheesman. Squire Lennen is my husband's 3rd great uncle. Thank you again for telling me about the reunion. Judi (Vaneman) Schoonover.

Isaac "Ike" Cheesman
Hello Mr. Cheesman,
I am the Great Granddaughter of Alvina Hartfield Helmond who was the sister of Isaac Cheesman's wife, Laura Hartfield. I have recently acquired some family photos and I believe that Isaac and his mother may be in one of the pictures. I was hoping that you would be willing to allow me to email a copy of the picture to you and that you might be able to help with identifying the people in the photo. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you,

Children of Omer L. Stingley
Hello! I am the Grandson of Omer L. Stingley and Flossie Fern Stingley. I notice on Grandpa's page that his two surviving sons were not listed. They were my father, Omer A. Stingley 1916 - 1983. And my Uncle, Malcom V. Stingley 1921 - Present. I felt kinda funny not bringing this to some one's attention. Thank you so much for all the great work you do!

Hi David!
I think I have made a break-through. You must be related to Tennie Starr. I think we have a common Grandfather the Elder William R. Starr/Stare/Stair. My Mom's Cousin Harlin had written a book on our Family and I promised him before he passed that I would continue looking for our Family in Scott county, Ark. Im hoping You are some of them :)
Excited to hear from you,

Joseph Morgan & Druscilla Cheesman
Hello David,

Can you give me any family history information on this couple? I am researching these families for a friend and would like to learn all I can about their family histories/stories. I am assuming you are a descendant.

Thank you! Jennie Hise

Linus J. Bassett

Are you related to him? He was married to my aunt, Geraldine Stone Bassett - they married in 1946.

If you are related to him, or can let me if he still has any living relatives, I would very much like to speak to you.

Thank you!

Halsey Cheesman
Hi David,

Thanks for setting me straight on this Halsey fellow. I had seen him listed under Walt Whitman on so I assume now that Walt has also got Halsey under the wrong parents based on that 1897 birth date. Thanks again, Horace
