Hi Ron, Thank you so much for trying to find the picture for Manlius. I think it is always so sad when there is no marker on a grave. Thanks again. Linda Maret

Hi Ron--Are you related to Louisa Maloney? If you are, would you happen to know where her sister Mary Bush and her brother William Bush ended up? Louisa's father, John, was the brother of my gg grandmother, Rebecca Bush Davis. Thanks!!

Thank you for your help and the date info on the cemeteries. I hear you on the confusion factor. I get confused sometimes because Fairview and New Hope both have Blocks with the same number. I have to do a lot of double checking.

Thanks again for your help

Ron, thanks for such quick attention to the Deatley memorials. Do you think they could have moved to Rose Hill, or just that the DAR notes were incorrect? Anyway I am glad they have tombstones at Rose Hill.

RE: James Wheatley
Hi Ron ,

Sorry about that...after I sent you the original message I realized I didn't give you much information to go on. Unfortunately I'm at work right now & don't have the dates with me. I do know the death date for James is correct as it appears on his memorial page. I will send you complete info this afternoon.

Thanks so much for your willingness to help!!

Easter Thank You 04 03 2015

In the event that I have not thanked you, personally, for the transfers that you have provided me with, I wish to do so at this time.

My retirement from all my social and family duties have dwindled down since my health has had the opportunity to allow me to beat my God given expiration date, with the help of family, fantastic physicians and hospital, and the implantation of a pacemaker. Rest is my priority when not doing some physical duties, yet Find A Grave and family ancestry tracing is still fun.

To all my Find a Grave friends, you have all been a tremendous help with your contributions to me and especially to this site.

Happy Easter, be safe, have fun and Thank You.

Louisa Tucker Thomas
I thought I'd ask if you would change the birth date of Louisa Tucker Thomas. I think the shadow has created a block for her actual birth date which is 1832. Louisa is my second great grandmother! If I give you some other people to connect to her grave and to her my grandfather's would you make that connection? I would love that.

Thank you so much.
Debra Thomas

RE: re: Sarah Bilyeu Phillips
Hi Ron, her death certificate gives 1860 as her year of birth, whereas the marker gives 1859. Both the death certificate and the grave marker were created shortly after her death, whereas the 1860 census was recorded when she was just a young girl, about 2 years old, so I think the census is more likely to be accurate. Anything recorded around the actual date of her birth, like a family Bible record, would be the best evidence.

Added by Amy Suzanne Martin on Feb 16, 2015 9:55 AM

Amy Suzanne Martin
re: Sarah Bilyeu Phillips
Hi, regarding her date of birth, she is recorded as age 2 in the 1860 census and age 12 in the 1870, so I think the 1858 date is probably accurate unless you have something recorded at the time of her birth, such as a Bible record. Many thanks, Amy

Knaus cemetery
Susan Scybert is in the Knaus family cemeterY

you can see the bio I did for her sister but I did not do a bio for Susan because you have management.

1850 census Wm. Sybert parents/siblings
1860 census Scybert, Henry/Susan
1880 Susan is a widow and lives alone

there are only 3 of them on the cemetery list at this time but I am told that there are at least 4-5 more family members out there.

thank you

RE: James Holder Birth Date
Thanks Ron. I noticed that several of the children's dates did not agree with the records, but she was so definite on Her GG Grandfaters exact date. As we both know there is nothing to believe unless it is a birth certificate, or for date of death on death certificates. I never take the birth date from a death certificate. The person giving information is often guessing. I will usually use the date on draft board data because it is given by the person, and signed by them.

Thanks Again,
Bill Holder

RE: James Holder Birth Date
I received this from a direct line relative, Janice Holder Black:

James HOLDER b 19 Oct 1811 in Virginia (County unknown) m Margaret HUMPHREY(S) (b 1814 in VA to John Humphrey & wife) in 1836; they had "13 children" according to my paternal grandfather. He moved to Winchester, Scott Co., IL shortly after marrying, where he was listed as a blacksmith in the 1850 Census. The children of James & Margaret were all born in
Illinois: Mary, b 1837, Matilda, b June 1838, John, b 1839, Martha, b 1840, Alice, b 1843, James b 1844 (d 1877), Eliza b 1846, David William b Oct 22 1846, Sarah b April 1850, Martin b 1852 and Lydia (birth date unknown).

James suffered a stroke before 1880 and was living with adult sons Martin and others in Holden, MO when he died March 15, 1881. Strangely, I have no date on Margaret's death.

I'm trying to find out James' siblings, assume most of them stayed in Virginia

Any info you have would be helpful, Thanks, Janice Holder Black

RE: Vest Family Memorials

Apologies for the delay in response. I took the photo of Ron's memorial while there for a different purpose. Unfortunately I don't have any further information.
Best wishes and have a nice Thanksgiving.
