|M. Brownson||RE: Your pix....|
We cleaned the stones with water and a stiff bristle brush if needed; then some we re-wet depending if the lettering was raised or engraved; and others we chalked a bit. I was happy to do it as my great-grandmother married a Gaston, descendant of James Gaston and Catherine Creighton in Wayne County, IL. She died in 1976, a much-beloved lady. James was William's brother - he moved one county further on to Marion. They were really a fine bunch of brothers who risked all during the Revolutionary War.

|Marcerino||RE: William Martin|
In the past I've looked through Paul's Graveyard as I know they were Covenanters as was most of my Father's family but haven't found any connections. Most of my family line is in what F.A.G calls Old Covenanter Cemetery also known as the Rocky Creek or Old Brick Cemetery near Chester. The majority of that congregation moved as a group to Ohio in 1832. The families intermarried within the congregation both in South Carolina and in Ohio so I have numerous names from both places including McMillans, Coopers and William King who are all in the Old Brick/Covenanter Cemetery as well as Coopers, Stormonts, McDills, McQuistons and Mary Martin Cooper who appears to be William Martin's daughter in Cedarville, Ohio. When I discovered Mary I realized I needed to visit William Martin's resting place.

Hello again. It occurred to me that you are a distant cousin through the Storments. Let me know.

|Marcerino||RE: William Martin|
Thank you for the note. Walking back to Reverend Martin's home site somehow added to my understanding his life and the history of the area. I'm sure you've had the same experiences while visiting there. Is he your ancestor? If so we are distant cousins.

|S.Hooper||RE: St Sebastians Crowthorne|
Hi I will try and have a look for you. The church yard is quite small so shouldn't be too difficult. I am also friends with one of the vicars there so he may be able to locate it rather than walking round.
My gt gr grandfather was buried in a public grave in Birmingham, I spoke to the friend of the cemetery group who told me that these graves can contain up to 200 people! How on earth they manage that I don't know but he was a business man and wealthy too so I was surprised to hear that.

I would be willing to take a photo at Crown Hill Cemetery per your request but you must supply me with the Section and Lot number. This is a very big cemetery.

Saw your listings for the Rogers & Scobey family. Are you related?

Hi BF, Could you delete my 1st message here that has my (living person) husband's name (& this message)? The one in the middle is okay, 'cause it's an ancestor, (not a living person). Thanks for everything- You're awesome.

Oh, thank you! You are so kind and I'm glad to "meet" a distant cousin. You are a super blessing!

Thank you for sharing with me the passing of your father. May all your family know peace. I realize that we were the same age though he was nine months older.
Am grateful for the service of your father and grandfather. My father was with the 4th Marine Division during WWII.

Many thanks, Brian. Great job on all the photos. Let me know if you need any shots from Texas. I'd love the chance to return the favor.

Not trying to nag, just FYI that we've cleared over 200 requests this spring and now have 626 requests—fewer than there were in June, 2012. We'd be happy to clear your request(s) but some/all do not have plot information. Please call (216) 641-7575 and obtain plot information. We most likely already have a plot map but will let you know once we have plot info if we also need a map. Thanks!

You're right! Didn't see the "Orange & Blue" game this year, but I'm already having flashbacks of the early 1970s gators when the only side that could score was the defense.
Here's hoping that Saban decides he wants try to his hand at the pros (again) or retirement soon - UF may stand a chance in that case.
Forever wishing the "ol' ball coach" would return ...

Just got the message and transfer; thanks, again. If at any time you change your mind or want to add more, let me know - I'll send her back to you.
I hope your looking forward to this year's football season when the SEC shows, once again, its preeminence! Hopefully, BAMA will be on UF's schedule; we're ready to draw blood from that CRIMSON!

|Jennie||RE: No problem on Julia Parkinson|
Brian, thanks for linking Julia to her family. Her daughter's name was "Eloise" who married Wayne C. Bingham. She and her husband are buried in Bellflower Township Cemetery in McLean Co., IL (ID 21322805 and ID21322809, respectively).
My connection to her is through her father's aunt, my 3rd great-grandmother, Mary White Jones. Many of my "White" and "Jones" ancestors where in the Clinton Co. area prior to its formation.

Thanks for praise and for putting a smile on my face!
The McDowells were most definitely Ulster Scots. They came together in a group with the Paisleys, Whites, and Boyds, first to Philadelphia, PA, thence to Guilford Co, NC. They had been given the lands taken by the English king from the Irish lairds who had attempted rebellion.
A generation later, his son, King George, took the lands from these transplanted Scots, about the time following the Battle of Culloden. They were pissed off big-time, and transplanted themselves to the North American continent. Big mistake for King George, because these folks were looking for any excuse to pick another fight with him! They fought fiercely in the Revolution.
To see more of my photos for the McDowells, see my database on Ancestry.com by using this link, if you are also a member:

Thanks again for writing! Cheers! Nancy Poquette
