RE: Ladd Cemetery N Chapel Rd Franklin Tn
Hello, Linda!

When I was looking in the area for my great-great grandmother Julia Ladd I was told there were about 7 Ladd cemeteries in the area of Trinity Road and Hwy 96. There is a Ladd Road there which I assume goes through what use to be the old homeplace. The Ladd Cememtery that I posted the photos from is on N. Chapel Road. If you leave Franklin Tn going east on Hwy 96 (going toward Murfreesboro, TN) you will turn right on Trinity Road and the next right will be N. Chapel Road. Just a short distance on the left you will see a small white frame farm house (unless they have put up a McMansion, this area is really hot for building big homes). In the barnyard you will see a concrete walled graveyard. You may not be able to see the markers from the road. I just knock on the front door and make sure the people know I'm there to see my family graves, ask permission and they have always been very nice about it. I believe it's called the Rivers Farm. Not sure about that, it's been a while.

Like I say there are about 7 small Ladd cemeteries in the area. The people who work in the Franklin Archives are very helpful and there are still Ladds living in the area. Good luck with your hunting. If I can be of any help, on I am MissYaya and my family tree is Hill Family Tree. I will be happy to help you.

RE: Mary Miller Memorial # 58119137
Thank you for that info. It would have been nice if the Society had told me what you just told me. But I guess that would be more than should be expected. They deal with facts not research. Now I know we are on the same page...that's great! Ray

Mary Miller Memorial # 58119137
Hi Mary...I believe there may be an error in your information. If in fact her maiden name was Coombs, she would likely link back to a Mayflower person. That was what I thought originally but it turned out to be declined by the Mayflower Society. I have the marriage record for her and would be glad to send that along if you provide me your email. You can find my email on my bio page. Ray

RE: Pvt Joseph Ladd
I am in Texas now but will be home next week. I will transfer the photo over to you then and cancel my site. I will first try and transfer the memorial over to you. If it doesn't work let me know. You are no bother to me. I am doing all of this from my phone so don't have the same as if home on my computer.

RE: Wife
Joseph Ladd you said his wife's name was Mangrum, many in Williamson county and in the same cemetery. You are welcome to use the photo just let me know when you are finished and I will then delete my posting.I live in Franklin, TN and it is my goal to photo all markers in Williamson Memorial. About 85% finished.

RE: Pvt Joseph H Ladd
I am thrilled to hear your story and so happy a mystery had been solved. I would be happy to transfer his memorial to you but first would like to know how you found where I had posted his marker from Williamson. I am fairly new at this and still learning. Thanks Linda

RE: Samuel Thaxter
Sorry. Don't know how the duplicate happened. I'm pretty sure there was no other Samuel Thaxter in Hingham Cem when I posted it. Nonetheless, you should contact and ask them to merge the two memorials. Otherwise the comments that have been added to mine will be lost.

Samuel Thaxter
There's a second memorial for him 88185637 that shows a headstone in Hingham Cemetery.

I have a copy of the marriage record for the Capt. They were married on June 7 1722. If you would like me to send a scan of it to you as support for the Bio, I would be glad to do that. My email address is on my bio.

Sarah Thaxter, dau. of Samuel & Abigail

I believe this SARAH THAXTER who died in 1711 was not the daughter of SAMUEL THAXTER, as stated in Linda's find-a-grave, but that she was the dau. of JOHN THAXTER.

The Sarah Thaxter who was the daughter of Samuel Thaxter and Abigail Church was b. 16 Nov. 1668; d. aft. 20 May 1725 (div. hus. estate) - See “Mayflower Births and Deaths, Vol. 1 and 2 for Sarah Thaxter:

Samuel Thaxter’s daughter Sarah married PETER DUNBAR and was living when he died in 1720. - See “Mayflower Deeds and Probates, 1600-1850”

Memorial # 32371556
Your memorial 32371556 for Joshua Bemis (1729-1789) is a duplicate of Memorial 22952699 which was created Nov. 2007. It is so very important we do not have duplicates on Find A Grave, if people did not adhere to this policy it would soon be a nightmare. The user (Sheila Thurston) who manages the older memorial is active and perhaps she could transfer the memorial to you for further development. If not, the two must be merged into one. will take care of the merge with one quick email. Thanks, James

RE: Wm Bradford
Great and lucky you for having 6 pilgrim people. I was proud to have TWO. They all inter-married among the families. Carole

Wm Bradford
I encourage you to join the Mayflower Society if you can prove through documentation that you are BLOOD related to Wm Bradford. I've done it. I'm related to TWO original Mayflower pilgrims.

Debbie Smith Shaffer
Benjamin Smith Sr.
Hello Linda,
I am looking at your Memorial Page for this ancestor we share and am curious about the entry that says two of his children, Thomas and Ebenezer, "became the transmitters of his name unto this present time." Can you tell me where this quote comes from?

I know you descend from Benjamin Sr's son Benjamin (with no male issue) and I descend from his son Thomas. Banks History of Martha's Vineyard lists 7 children, 3 of whom are male. Also, no descendants of Ebenezer have come forward with yDNA in the Northeast Smith Project for Group 9, so perhaps there are no longer any Smith males from his line.

RE: John Dunbar grave
I did take pictures I could send you if you give me an email. There were 5 stones together in the front right of the cemetery. The best I could read the inscription was. (1) In memory of Isabell (?) wife of Hall Dunbar who died Oct. 16, 1843 age 56. (this would be the date Isabell died, not Hall).
(2) In memory of Hall Dunbar who died June 29, 1856 aged 50.
(3) Illegible stone
(4) Revolutionary War, Aaron Dunar, Conn. Militia, Died Jan. 20, 1820 age 72.
(5) In memory of Mrs. Mary wife of Mr. Aaron Dunbar who died July 18, 1827 (this would be Mary's date of death not Aarons).
That is what I found. I have to reach out to the cemetery office to see if they have a record of who might have the illegible headstone and if John is buried in this cemetery somewhere. Families were not necessarily all together like these 5. He could be somewhere else in this cemetery will an illegible headstone.
If you want the photos I have, I can send them via email if you just tell me where to send it. My email is

Hello Linda, Thank you for creating this memorial for my 9th Great Grandfather. Per my research I believe that Robert Dunbar 38974344 is Peter's father. I would love to see Peter linked to his father if you check it out and find you agree. Thank you for all you do for Billie Find A Grave# 48331425

RE: Fannie Dowdy Smith
Absolutely! And I can transfer any of the Dowdy's to you, just let me know. I also linked anotherof Fannie's and James's children, an infant. I also believe that Fannie's father is buried at Elmwood but he died just before they started issuing death certificates in Robertson County. On one pretty day I am going to go down to Elmwood and see if I can locate the graves. They are the only Dowdy's buried in Robertson County. Thanks Linda!
