My husband is a descendant and I have just taken over the site (46249912). I notice you have posted a small picture of Margaret with a lot of white around it. Would you mind re-posting the picture without the white? Thanks, Hilda

Thank you for doing this. I really appreciate it. We don't have many pictures of Quentin and I'm always excited when I see new ones.

Because of you, I also made about a dozen other changes on Anna...catching up...Thank you for nudging me to attach Anna to her husband Herman...that family sort of weaves into other local families and sometimes becomes hazy.

RE: William Francis Griffin
Thanks again for posting the great pic of Grandpa Griffin. He was one of those "colorful" characters right out of Damon Runyon. Spent his entire life as a bookie. Devoted to cards and the track, he was managing card halls until the end. His game was lowball. My particular branch of the Griffins dates pretty far back and connects with the Austin family. A healthy Griffin branch in Moira, NY still remains where they have gathered regularly over the decades. On my Grandfather's side my cousin Mike James has done quite a bit of work, and a distant cousin, David Griffin in Phoenix, has done a phenomenal amount of work. On my Grandmother's side (Stamback), Terry (Shivley) Weaver has also done an amazing amount of work. My Grandfather met my Grandmother (Elsie Marie Stamback) in Osawatomie, KS and in time, moved west to Richmond, CA in the San Francisco East Bay. Like most families in present day, we are now spread far and wide connected primarily by technology.

I see you have done quite a bit of work for many. Thanks for all you do.

Griffin Grimes Families
In my search for my maternal grandfathers linage, i ran across this Find-a-Grave of Sallie Grimes. You referred to her as your grandmother. My grandfather was Henry Horatio Griffin, I believe to be a brother of Sallie. My late mother mentioned Sallie's surviving children throughout her lifetime I believe them to be the cousins they saw the most often. You mentioned that you walking through the cemetery with her as she pointed out family and friends. This sparked my interest as to who the family might be and if they could be related to me. I definitely believe we are 2nd or 3rd cousins. I would enjooy hearing from you.

I think I contacted you in the past about a picture and you said you just find them and try to put with memorials. Still, I have to ask where you might have found this pic and how you knew it went with that memorial. I'm trying to follow threads to my husband's ancestor and find the name John H. used in several different families of interest and of course pictures are prized.

Thanks, Mike. I'll let you know if I have any luck finding a burial for Harriet W. All the best, greenie

Harriett SMITH Ford and Harriet WILLIAMS Ford
Hi Mike, I'm a Ford cousin. I noticed you had added a photo to memorial 68911058 for Harriet Smith Ford. I think there may be a bit of confusion because Stephen Baldwin Ford married twice, both times to women named Harriett. I think the picture you posted is SBF's second wife, Harriett WILLIAMS Ford, who apparently lived 1804/5-1899. SBF's first wife, Harriet SMITH Ford died in 1838, so it is unlikely that she was ever photographed. There is no findagrave memorial for Harriett WILLIAMS Ford (Though memorial 29025181 refers to Harriet Williams Ford but again it shows the marker for Harriet SMITH Ford (again, d. 1838) and misstates their marriage date as her birth date.. If you would please remove the photo from the Harriet SMITH Ford memorial, perhaps you could add it to Stephen B''s memorial with a caption? Or if we can work together to locate Harriett WILLIAMS Ford memorial? If you have access to ancestry, the info I have is from "Earlier Families of Milford", available through the card catalog on Ancestry.

Saw the pictures you have posted and made the assumption you were related to to the Richard Colvin Morris line? If so, would like to communicate as I know little about this line in my past. Don't have much but could fill in a few holes in Austin Morris line. Willing to share info. Thanks!

Mike, Never mind. I'm going to delete my memorial and just add corrections to Lynn's memorial. I apologize. I didn't notice at first that her memorial is older than mine.

Thanks anyway.

Zula Samsel
Mike, you posted a picture on Zula Samsel's memorial No. 74216398. There is, I believe, a more accurate memorial No. 76234155 that has her headstone. Would you be willing to add her picture to that one, please. She was a beautiful lady.

Thank you.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for posting the picture of Sarah E. Ford's headstone. Are you related to her? She and her husband David are my great great grandparents. I have been trying to trace his Ford family.

Captain Curtis S. Griffin
Captain Curtis S. Griffin was on board of a bomber from the 67th Bomb Squadron, 44th Bomb Group. His plane participated in a bombing raid over Sicily on 14 July 1943. The plane never returned to her base. Captain Griffin is listed on the Walls of Missing of the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy.

You posted his picture on I would like to ask your permission to use that picture for my project about the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily, where over 1,200 men and women were buried between July 1943 and April 1947. If his remains would have been found, he would have been buried at Gela.

I have my project available on a DVD, titled "They stayed behind".

Of course you will be credited
