Find A Grave Memorial# 31218454

I appreciate your creating the memorial for my Great Grandfather Henry Church. It is however very incomplete and I have acquired an out of print family book that provides much information for him and the family.

I am asking that you transfer the management to me please. My contributor number is (#48206318)

Thank you

Good Morning
Good Morning Candice,
Just figured out that we are distant cousins from Sarah Livingood Buchanan's memorial that you posted. I am related through I believe would be your maternal great-grandmother, Frances Cook Livingood. She is descended from my 4th great-grandfather, Anthony Thomas Smith, through his son Noah Smith. The additional information if you would like to post on your Greene County Connections tree is as follows in reverse order is: Sarah Matilda Grandon (Thomas Hamlet) Cook -> Eliza Matilda Babbitt (Isaac McGlumphy) Grandon -> Elizabeth McGlumphy (Joseph Harvey) Babbitt -> Lydia Smith (John) McGlumphy -> Noah (Anne Hoge) Smith -> Anthony Thomas (Lydia Willets) Smith. I am always excited when I can uncover a living relative through my genealogy research. Your postings on Find A Grave and ancestry have helped me in my research. I just wanted to say thank you for everything that you are doing for genealogy.

Abel & Catharine Mills
I have been contacting cousins to raise the money for a small plain granite marker for these two. I was surprised at how the sandstone marker has deteriorated since I took the picture. We hope to have the new marker in place next month. Catharine's old marker will be placed near the new one, but won't be legible for too many more years. I'll add a new picture when this is accomplished.

Candice, hi, you posted the memorial for Mary Elizabeth Acklin and I was wondering if you had any other info about her? She may be my Great Grandmother. My grandmother, Mary D. (Acklin) McCoy's mother was supposedly a Mary Elizabeth married to John Acklin. Any info may help me link my grandmother to her parents. my email address is Thank you, Larry Gum..

RE: Catharine (Ulery) Mills Photo
I descend from Catharine & Abel Mills' granddaughter, Isabelle Morris Atwood. After Catharine & Abel's daughter, Emaline Mills Morris, died they brought her 3 children to IL with them. How are you related? I am meeting with a monument representative tomorrow to discuss recycling a small granite marker I am replacing on my late husband's grave. I will have it redone with Abel Mills (dates). There has never been a marker for him. Cemetery records say he is beside Catharine at the Wenona Comm. Cemetery. Hope this is ok with you.

Frederick Harvey, Jacksonville
I had posted Fred to Fairview Cemetery in 2010, and only was recently corrected about his location. Shall I remove my posting from Jacksonville Cemetery? Would you want to copy his bio paragraph before I do remove my memorial?

Hello Candice, in regards to Congressman Andrew Buchanan's portrait when I wrote his bio back in 2002, I think I found his image in the collection of the Libary of Congress files which has portaits and photos of congress members. Best always,

Hi" Added Mary Jewell Harden's dc to your Find A Grave Memorial. I believed Mary E. Harden was the former Mary E, Lape that had married James Harden in Fayette County in 1898 but thie Mary Harden that died in 1907 isnot any relation to ouir family. Ya might care to update the memorial now that the dc is attached. PS: I like your Grrene County Connections. If you have any LAPE surnames let mwe know, ok?

RE: Cook family
Unfortunately, I am not related as far as I know. A lot of the people buried in the cemetery are related to me though, so I have a great interest in the West Finley Cemetery. The man who keeps the records for it has recently allowed me to take pictures of the internment records (which I'm extremely grateful for), and I am trying to work through them so that everyone buried there has a memorial. If you would like me to send you a copy of the page with Ivie's information, I would be happy to! -Chelsea

I have some information that James Mason and his wife Mary Sayers were buried in South Ten Mile Baptist Cemetery in Holbrook, Greene, Pennsylvania. I found several Ross family members in the cemetery, but have not found James and Mary. Do you have any idea if there are graves there that have not been recorded? The information I have is:

James Mason
b. 26 Sept 1784 County Tyrone, Ireland
d. 12 June 1869 Greene County, Pennsylvania

Mary Sayers
b. 9 July 1788 New Jersey
d. 9 Feb 1883 Greene, Pennsylvania

Their children are Elizabeth, William, Mary, George,Charlotte, John Mason

Thanks for any help.

Hi Candice,

I was wondering if there are any additional Kents buried in Lantz Cemetery. I am specifically looking for the graves of Michael Inghram (M.I.) Kent who died in November 1952, and his wife Mary K. Snyder Kent. Thank you!

John McCann

The dates you provided match the dates I had on John so I've updated his memorial with information about his military service. I was hoping that his headstone had some additional prooof, but I guess we are lucky that you could even read the name and dates.

Thanks so much for the help you provided to identify John's memorial and connect him to his military service.

I have located the graves of many soldiers from Greene County who served in the 18th Pennsylvnai Cavalry. Keep me in mind if you run across any additional gravesites. There is a link to my cemetery on John's memorial.

I have processed the edit you sent for Myra McVay. If she is related to you please let me know and I'll transfer her to you. My wife, daughter and I are in the process of adding all the memorials and pictures we can to complete Centennial Cemetery as much as possible. We've taken hundreds of photos there but have not got them all entered yet. Thanks Tom.

RE: Ella Kiger
Thank you. The work you do is really impressive. I'm new to all of this, but feel a need to "connect the dots" and match these graves to the right people and families.
