RE: Isaac White memorial
This Isaac White had two brothers, Thomas and Joseph. Descendants mistakenly believed the Isaac White, Find A Grave Memorial# 53780675, fought at BKM and he was listed in the DAR GRS as DAR Ancestor Number A124779.

I feel you are getting very close. The Isaac White who fought at BKM died in Bond County, Illinois, USA (per Dr. Moss). Rev. John Barber, son of Captain John Barber (Find A Grave Memorial# 20623398) died in Bond County, Illinois. Rev John Barber = Find A Grave Memorial# 46169707.

Captain Barber was one of those who lived on the NC / SC border and did not make it to the battle in time to fight.

BKM Isaac White had a daughter named Margaret. I do not know whether she was the Margaret White who married Hugh McReynolds.

RE: Isaac White memorial
I hate when I have to disappoint and I must: I have no information on Isaac White. This is not my line. The interest I have is one hour of his life.

My White line is the bane of my research: I would so like to link to Isaac or one of his brothers who fought at BKM. The research has proven fruitless for me. I have a distant cousin who is using my DNA to search that White line even though it is not hers. My White lived in Rutherford County. I grew up in Spartanburg: many of my ancestors, therefore, lived in Rutherford, NC, so I was really interested to learn that you have been researching James Wilson. There was a James Wilson who fought at BKM: was that your James Wilson? I have only the information that Draper, thus Dr. Moss, wrote.

As an SAR member, you are aware of the amount of misinformation re BKM. I googled "Roster of Patriots at King's Mountain" thinking the site would take me to the one compiled by Dr. Moss. It took me to a site posted by Trish Carden. As I reviewed the roster, I realized that there was a problem. Several of my ancestors were named on the roster: I knew they had not fought. After I reviewed the list she posted, I knew she had about 1,000 mistakes. She included everyone that K.K. White and Lewis Preston Summers had claimed as having fought. The testimony of Patriots on their Applications for Revolutionary War Pension proved that many of the named Patriots did not fight in the battle. There were over 400 footmen who did not reach the battle on time and others on the SC / NC border who did not reach the battle on time.

I realize that you know more about the battle than I could ever learn. I am asking that you spread the word that K.K. White, "The King's Mountain Men", and Summers, "The Annals of Southwest Virginia", cannot be regarded as creditable sources. I have many descendants contacting me protesting my Virtual Cemetery Battle of King's Mountain, stating that, of course, their ancestor fought at BKM, citing one of those two as documentation. They will not accept my documentation that their ancestor - in his own words - testified he was not at BKM.

My goal is to correct the misinformation online so it will not be perpetuated.

Hi Jim--I am processing your edits. Would you like to accept transfer? Also, I found a short newspaper clipping from 1909 showing marriage of Roy Sudheimer to Emma Robberson. Do you have this? If not, I would be happy to email it to you. Thank you. Peggy

RE: John and Elizabeth Wilson
I will be more than happy to transfer to you but need your memorial #. My interest is in my wife's family (Falls) Her ancestor William Falls migrated to Illinois from NC with most of his children after the War of 1812. His oldest daughter, Elizabeth (1807-1879) married James Wilson and migrated on to Iowa where they are buried. This, thus, is our interest in the Wilson line which is somewhat removed.
Would, however be interested in data pertinent to her line. SEM-S C

RE: E Quisenberry
I have added what little additional information I have. No other Quisenberry's are buried by him. I note though that they used the Daniel's funeral home & the Wyandotte County Museum has those records. Give them a call and I bet they could tell you more. 913-573-5002

Frank Mason
When you click on the article on one of the Vann brothers, scroll to the bottom to see the caption.
Frank is buried in Westport cemetery and I just located his wife and an edit is pending for their daughter.
Let me know if there is anything else I can do. Take care.

The Vann brothers
Oh dear - what a horrible way to find out such tragic historic events in your family. I post historical information on very old memorials ONLY, hoping it won't be too stressful for anyone and these events were in 1890, so I apologize for any distress this may of caused you.
Of course, you may copy anything you want.
You asked about Frank Mason. You must of missed it, but I posted that information in the caption on the original article.
Thank you for writing.

RE: Thomas Eaton
I am not related to this family either. I just walk the Stone County Cemeteries and take pictures of the stones to enter them into Find A Grave in hopes of family or friends finding them. I so much appreciate your research and edits! I got Mary E Parker linked up to Thomas so that she is has both husbands listed.
Thank you again!!!

Rosalia Cemetery
Doing a search for "Rosalia Cemetery" in WA, Whitman County on findagrave it comes up with 3 cemeteries..Evergreen/Rosalia IOOF and Holy Rosary, and the duplicate cemetery you created, Rosalia Cemetery at Malden.

Added by Kerry on Aug 23, 2014 11:17 AM

RE: Re your comment on Hulda Springer Burial
Evergreen/Rosalia/Rosalia IOOF cemetery IS located on the Whitman/Spokane County line, just north of Rosalia, Whitman County, WA. There is NO cemetery in Malden. Malden is south of Rosalia, and no cemetery there..

I was there a month or so ago and GPS's a couple graves, although I can't remember the names of them now. I was trying out the findagrave app, just playing around with it on my way to Spokane..

Because she has no marker she wouldn't be listed here:

and because she has no marker and records keeping wasn't deemed that important at the time, she might not be listed as being buried there at all.

Here is a link to the city of Rosalia website, if you drag the map down, you will see the cemetery just north of's right on the county line.. the green square between US 195 and Kelsey Road..

Drag the map South and a bit west and you will see where Malden is..

The Funeral home should be able to tell you the name of the local business man who keeps the records for the cemetery... you can also contact the funeral home and verify that there is no cemetery at Malden.

RE: Nathan Lee Memorial
I documented the cemetery, in other words I spent many days walking and taking pictures of each stone and loading it to Find A Grave.
