Thank you for all your help, especially almost 3 years ago when I began the journey of connecting people, only a few edits left and my "journey" is done except for deaths in the future.On Find A Grave, I have traced the Phillips family back to 1766 (proved genealogy only goes that far too) with a detour to the Patterson/Fox line where DAR membership is proved. The Wiseman line was proved back to 1672 and is in Find A Grave for an Isaac born on the boat in 1699 and on to today; DAR for my branch of that family.too.

My father's side was more complex, but I didn't have to bother you. One proved line goes back to 1640 in Germany and a 4th cousin and I were able to "bury" 2 generations in Germany for Find A Grave. Two links for DAR -- Too bad that I don't plan to join, but someone in the future now has proof.

All my best for the future.

Plymale - Metzler
Hello Robin,

I see you have added people from the Mound Cemetery to Findagrave. My uncle and aunt were buried in that cemetery but they are not on Findagrave. Their names are Wilbur Everett Metzler (1910-1995) and Belva Ellen Plymale Metzler (1909-1995). I live in Oregon and would appreciate any help you may be able to provide. Many thanks, Millie

Phillips Family
Noticed that you had information on the Phillips family. Samuel and Mary Phillips were my 4x great grandparents. Their son, Rhuel married Elizabeth Molden and their daughter, Rachel Lorinda Phillips Nelson was my 2x great grandmother. "Rindy" married Henry Nelson. She was the mother of Minnie Nelson Vining who was my great-grandmother.

Is this the Phillips family that you have recorded information? If so, can you contact me? Thanks! Robin Moodie Willis

Melissa Lambert
Isaac Reeves and Alice Robinette Reeves
I've been researching and expanding my tree and noticed that you have put on some memorials for the children of Isaac Reeves (1814-1887) and Alice Ann Robinette Reeves (1820-1889). I'm not too far into their children yet, but the ones that I see so far have been buried in Woodyard, Haning and Alexander (Hebbardsville). Any idea where Isaac and Alice themselves may be buried? I am such a perfectionist and it drives me crazy that I cannot link their kids to them! Any help is much appreciated!

This memorial is a duplicate of Margaret Vernetta Denny, memorial #124350103, which is more complete with linking to her parents and husband.

Thank you for all you do in putting these memorials in Find-a-Grave. It has helped me tremendously in cleaning up my genealogical records.
