Nancy Gordon Rock
She was my 3rd great grandmother. I have traced the Rock family back to Robert Alexander Rock (born 1717 in Balleymoney, Ireland). I have not been able to back any further and would appreciate any information that you would be willing to share.

Maurice D. Robison
Monument to James E. Easterly
James Elmer Easterly was my 1st cousin twice removed. You created a memorial for him, because he is listed on a memorial page of the Clinton County War Memorial. (Memorial # 130779096)

Thank you very much for remembering James. He has a personal memorial on Findagrave (#3525778) that says he died in the Philippines during World War I. I had never questioned that until I saw your posting of the Clinton County War Memorial, that showed James as having died in the Spanish-American War. When I looked up the dates of the two wars, the Spanish-American war was the only war at the time of James' death.

Thank you very much for posting the picture of the Clinton County War Memorial. Otherwise, I may never have known. Below is what his other memorial says.

Birth: Feb., 1822
Indiana, USA
Death: Jul. 21, 1901, Philippines

Killed during World War I. He had been in Company "L" of the 38th US Infantry. He had a brother, Oliver Harvy Easterly, who was in the same company.

James' parents were George Washington Bible Easterly of Tennessee and Martha D. Gill of Kentucky.

Family links:
George Washington Bible Easterly (1836 - 1926)
Martha D Gill Easterly (1844 - 1911)

James E Easterly (1822 - 1901)
Lula L Easterly Ashley (1879 - 1959)*

James Finley
Shockey Family of Franklin Co., PA.
I have traced my wife's Shockey Family back to Johann Cristoff Shockey. Her line was through the 2 David's of Franklin County, PA. near Quincy. I recently told my Father-In-Law, Kenneth Shockey, about his family and would like to share with him as much information as possible. He is 85 years old, but in pretty good health. He is interested in visiting the area around Quincy and Waynesboro, PA and learning about where his family lived.
Anything you can share with me would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Jim in Maryland

Crazy question about 81896907 and 81896922
Hi! I've been poring over this, and just came to a surprising possible answer: could it be that these girls were not Kerfoots, but rather Shepherds? I ask because I photographed a stone on Saturday at Berryville Baptist Cemetery, and the stone is for "Ellanora and Hattie Kerfoot, infant children of Rev. T.B. and Ella Shepherd."

Seems unlikely that these aren't one in the same--there was only one "T.B. and Ella" in the cemetery, and that was the Shepherds.

I'd love to hear your thoughts,

Harry Walter Shockey is listed as my dad's father on his birth certificate. I'm just looking for some information about the Shockey family. I didn't know anything about this until I was in my 50s. So I am curious and have questions. The people that I know will have answers are all dead, so any help would be appreciated. Not looking for anything other than some potential new family members. My grandmothers name was Bertha Peterson. My dads name was richard Theodore Peterson on his birth certificate, but was changed to Slaybaugh sometime in his childhood

I happen to be reading a book by a James Birney Shaw called History of the Tenth regiment Indiana volunteer infantry, and on page 79 I learned of a Samuel H Shortle who was involved in the Civil War and decided to look him up on Findagrave and pay my respects, and that's when I found you! :) (Hopefully, someday, I will find the time to post the information about Captain Samuel H Shortle (130778651) because it is very endearing!)
I couldn't help but notice your family information because so many names stood out to me, i.e., Shaw being that his book has brought so much to light for me! I noticed that you have some family named Shaw, and couldn't help but wonder if there is some connection for you there. I do not believe I am related to any Shaws, but I am related to some Dyers and Wells, and my imagination ran wild seeing both of these names on your profile! Someday, perhaps, we can exchange notes?
I thank you for all the work that you do, and I hope you have a wonderful holiday!

J Wolf
Josepch Shockey
I am sorry. I claimed the photo requests for Joseph and Edna Shockey, but have pic of the father instead. My mistake. Edna is buried in another section (sec 70, lot 18), but I did not find that section Saturday. I will clarify if Joseph Jr is buried there. Section 38 is the only one I was given (but obviously for Sr, not Jr).

RE: Loveless family
I noticed you lived in Indiana - Tippacanoe area which is where Robert Asher lived. Did you ever come across his parents? I was under the impression that he was born in Virginia.

They had a daughter married to a Elizabeth married to Robert Asher. I do have proof to Robert and Elizabeth marriage but not the rest. All information would be appreciated. Do not have parents for Rachel Van Hook or futher back.
Thank you,
