Mark Cunningham
Kinninson Edmiston Cunningham Family connection
Hi Penny,

I hope this email finds you name is Mark Cunningham..I'm from Chatham Ontario Canada and I think we may be related based on your citation here: great-great grandfather is John Cunningham, his wife's name was Fedelia (Edmiston) Cunningham...her father was Isaac Edmiston, her mother Elizabeth Kinnison (born 1811 Bath, Virginia, United States died 1860? Iowa, United States) who'se father was Mark Kinnison...Fedelia's father Isaac seeems to have died before the 1850 Census Erkhart Indiana Census report was released as she is cited as living with her (the name was mis-spelled) grandparents:

Please let me know if I'm correct in our KinnisonEdmistonCunningham connection...hopefully we might be able to fill in some gaps in our respective family lines.

RE: Mary Catherine Kinnison Mansker
Penny-Thanks for contacting me! I hope your wrist is getting better. I was feeling your pain just reading your message. As you can see from Find A Grave and (if you saw my tree), I actually had photos of Mary (my 3rd great gma on Mom's side). I found these after my mom passed away and we were cleaning the house. Thank goodness my grandma marked the photos or I would have had no idea who these awesome ancestors are! My husband and I just visited the Mansker Cemetery a couple of weeks ago and I was mortified by the condition of the cemetery. It's overgrown and more markers are missing and/or toppled. I think I am going to organize a big clean up and stone repair with a group of cousins in the spring! If you can type, write me back. Where do you live? I'd love to meet up if possible. Happy Thanksgiving!!!! Janis

Cora E Kincannon Smith
I'm writing from Spokane, WA, I'm a Eastern Washington Genealogical Society volunteer for the Spokane main library. We are doing a Walking with Ancestors tour at the Greenwood Memorial Cemetery. I am portraying Cora E Kincannon Smith.
Her father is Edwin Scott Kincannon and mother is Katherine Kincannon. Do you know why E S came to Spokane and went into real estate? Is anyone else in the family a medium or psychic like Cora?

Thank you, Pat

Thanks you for your message. You have a lot of family in Desert Lawn. Maybe we'll meet up sometime at the cemetery. Desert Lawn is a well cared for cemetery. It's a good experience to visit there, and enjoy the beauty.

You are welcome. I always hope that the photos added to the Find A Grave website will help someone or give someone a chance to see the tombstone, who might not otherwise.

Margaret Kincannon
Birthplace of George Kincannon
The birthplace of George Kincannon, born c. 1865, was most likely York (now Adams) County, PA. The "Kilkennon" family was mentioned as living there, in (now) Buchanan Valley, at the time of an Indian attack on the neighboring Jamison/Jemison farm in 1758. Listed as Francis "Cancanan", George's father was listed on a 1762 tax list in that county, living in Menallen Township.

RE: Charles Kinnison
Thanks so much for your reply. Sorry to hear about the deaths in your family. That kind of thing can take so much out of us.

I have heard that there are quite a few mistakes in the work done by Don Kinnison. When it comes to genealogy stuff, that is such an easy thing to do--make mistakes! I do it all the time.

I thought if and when you ever get the time, you could delete Charles and Martha's names from the site, or rather, include them on Amos' page, with information about their moving to Ohio etc, but remove them from the list of people interred there.

Thanks again for writing. Volunteers get little credit, and I just want you to know I appreciate the work you have done on the McNeel grave site.

RE: Montrey Reeves #32857264
I have no connection. . .was just out filling photo requests and since this was such a small cemetery, took photos of all that were there and then let those who had the pages know that pictures were now available. Impressed that you've tracked everyone down. I should be spending more time doing that for my family. . .but filling photo requests seems easier ;-)

I was at Chalk Mound yesterday and took photos of all the stones there. Thought you might like to see Montrey's stone.

Your name was given to me by another person that has sent me hints for my RIGGS Family in and about WAYNE COUNTY, IL

My maternal Grandfather was James Archibald Riggs, son of James R. (I believe the R=Riley) Riggs and his first wife Johanna Stanley (sometimes listed as Joanna; my mother had told me it was Johanna as she had a sister Johanna being named after the grandmother); James R's second wife was Laura Mae Bowman. James R was the son of Josephus Riggs and Osa Jane Tampset (sp?).

It is my understanding that Josephus was Killed at the Battle of Shiloh in 1862.

Past that point I am stuck. I believe Josephus' mother's name was Elizabeth, but I cannot find his father. Nor can I find information on Osa Jane.

I understand you are related to the Riggs Family in the same area. I was wondering if you would be able and willing to assist me in my search. I am relatively new at this and now live in Florida, so it is difficult for me to go spend my days at the courthouse.

Did I read that you had published a book? What is the title and date of publish? Do you think I would find it in a FL library?

I thank you for your time.

No, I am not related; I just do a lot of genealogy. I have published one book already, but I also enjoy helping other families. A friend and I are working on uploading individuals and photos of stones for all of Nuckolls County. I also am uploading individuals with obituaries and photos for my husband and my families with the hopes of connecting with some of them. Happy Hunting!!
