I am searching through my family history and found that my 3 times great grandpa David S. Shook had a son by the name of Robert A Shook and the year of birth is right. I was wondering if you happen to know the parents of Robert A. Shook (R.A.

Bill Newman
Ann Newman Lawlis
Hello Scott:
Discovered your posting a couple of days ago. According to Catherine Lawlis, James Lawlis died in Benedicta, Maine and was buried close to the Catholic Church. Martin Lawlis, Anne Newman Lawlis' son, searched years for the grave but was unsuccessful. It appears that they grave may have been destroyed during the expansion of the church's foundation. There is mention that Ann Newman Lawlis was born in Derry in 1830. I presume that this information was obtained from one of Ann Newman Lawlis' descendants but that presents a problem. At the time in question there were very few if any Newmans living in Derry. Do you suppose that over time Derry was confused with Kerry? On several documents Anne Newman Lawlis' middle initial appears as a P. Do you know what the P stands for? Anne Newman, James Newman, Denis Newman, and Patrick are recorded as sisters and brothers on the 1851 New Brunswick Census for Northampton Parish.

James Newman is a direct ancestor of mine.

Linda Doile Morris
Bernice Snepp
Hello, My name is Linda and I would like more informtion on Bernice if you don't mind. It lists Georgia Muck as a daughter. That is what I need some clarification on. And, I would like to know if you know your Snepp line. If you do not, I can give you all of it up to a Joseph Schnepp, the original name. I did not know about Bernice until this memorial. If you do not know who I am, I am the lady that did the entire Schnepp tree, about 90,000 of us.

Can't wait to hear from you.

John J Lawlis
Trying to track down my grandfather Harry P Galarneaux family tree, information is very sketchy and my mom does not remember much, are you related to John J Lawlis born Aug 20 1881 died Apr 25 1953? If you are, would like to exchange information that would possibly help me untangle the family tree. thanks, Toni Wolff

re: James Lawlis
Mr Lawlis, I hope my email to you was successful. As I said I am a descendent of this man as well. I am happy to hear that James Lawlis' family came from Scotland as I had followed possible threads to England, Wales, and Ireland. Thank you for all of your work.

James Brady Keating
Hello, Scott

I don't find a "James" Brady Keating in Fairmount. However, I do find a "John" Brady Keating. Burial date 2/7/1966. Block 30, Lot 4 S1/2. Would this be him? The only others buried near him are:

Mr. & Mrs. Ed Keating, Block 30, Lot 4. Died 1910 (Mrs.) and 1912 (Mr).

There's also a Mr. (d. 1953) & Mrs. (d. 1973) Emmett Keating, Block 85, lot 5.

Let me know. I'm headed there in a few days to take photos.

Family Tree: Lawlis Branch
Hello there! Distant relative here :)
I started my family tree a few months ago on and I stumbled upon my great great grandmother's missing information, and upon googling her info, I found your 'find a grave' tree. I would assume you are a relative since the Lawlis Branch comes up from my great grandmother's parents. I emailed you details of a family discrepancy I found from Olfrey McCormick Lawlis' memorial. Look for my email :) Thank you.

ref the request for Abraham Lawlis/Lawless tombstone picture - I have gone through the records of burials there and I found an A Lawlis with a dod of 29 Mar 1918. (did not locate any Abraham.)
I went to the cemetery to look at the markers, there was a marker for Ambrose Lawlis 1863-1918 (father) and Clara Lawless 1871-1919 (mother) and Albert Lawless 1898-1968 (son).
There was also markers on the lot for Clovie E s/o AJ & ME Lawless b. 25 Mar 1882 d. 30 Oct 1905. Andrew J Lawless 1844-1915 burial 21 July.
Mary E Lawless 1846-1922 burial 17 February.

If any of this helps or you need pictures of the markers - let me know and I will get them posted

RE: Elmer Lawlis
No problem on the foto. I posted one and when I checked the pics on my laptop later, I noticed I was putting a shadow across the stone so I went back this morning and re-took it. Hopefully ya'll were looking at the latest one because I replaced the first one this afternoon. No shadow and the sun was hidden by the oak tree, much better pic.
The pleasure was all mine, James Coston

I found a headstone for Christina Lawlis, but it appears the year of birth is wrong on it. It has 1858 as birth year. I checked the death certificate and it agrees with what you have. Do you still want me to post this picture??
