|Jessica L. Fordham Patterson||one more message today..|
Sorry to leave you so many messages.. But it appears that you have added much of my family.
I may request more memorials on behalf of the family. I am trying to pick up were my great aunt Eleanor and her cousin 'Mickey' will be leaving off when they pass. Mickey is the son of Gertrude Elmore #90049546 and Eleanor is the one I requested before.
I have submitted an edit for memorial #90071775. You have her listed as Nancy. We cannot figure out how that name came about, most likely a census mistake. But her name is in fact Nannie. I have several accounts of this name directly from the family.
Have a great day,

|Jessica L. Fordham Patterson||my great aunt|
Also, I noticed that you have added my great aunt Eleanor #90071312
She is still alive and would probably find it humorous that she already has a memorial. She is in her 90's now. Would you transfer this one as well? I would love the honor of taking this over for her on the family's behalf.
Thank you again.

I added some of your info., but didn't see the descrepancies.
Sarah Ralston Jones was the daughter of Morgan Jones, an attorney, and Mary Hemphill, who were married in Wilmington, Delaware in 1808, and who had two sons and two daughters there. Morgan Jones was from Craven County, North Carolina and Mary Hemphill was the daughter of a distinguished merchant of Philadelphia and Wilmington, William Hemphill (1743-1823). Mr. Hemphill was a partner in a vast shipping business with Robert Ralston (1761-1836) of Philadelphia, one of the most successful merchants of his day, with ships trading in the West Indies, France, Ireland and China. According to the History of Delaware 1609-1888 by J. Thomas Scharf, Mr. Hemphill became “a large land-holder in Wilmington and was interested in and contributed much to its business prosperity.” The Historical Society of Delaware contains The Hemphill Papers, correspondence regarding the family’s shipping and trading, concentrating on the sugar and rum trade in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The prominence of the Hemphill family and its affiliation with Robert Ralston, who seems likely to have been Sarah’s godfather, allow for the complete and fascinating family history that accompanies this outstanding sampler.
Records from the First and Central Presbyterian Church of Wilmington chronicle the births and deaths within this family and allow us to confirm that Sarah Ralston Jones was born in April of 1814. She was only 8 years old when she worked this extraordinary sampler in April of 1822. Quite sadly, Sarah died later that year, on September 30, at age 8 years 5 months. Much is known about the adult lives of Sarah’s brothers and sister, as they also held leadership positions in their communities and in national government.
Sarah was clearly a highly talented needleworker, adept with chenille but equally accomplished in her tiny cross-stitched lettering and queen’s-stitched strawberries. The sampler was worked in chenille, silk and crewel wool on linen and is in excellent condition. It has been conservation mounted into a fine mahogany and gold leaf frame.
See Sarah's memorial and click on the picture.
See notes there.

You stated that my memorial was the oldest. It wasn't, mine was created 2014. The one you stated was newer was created 2006.
I deleted mine ONLY because it was a true duplicate, being the newer.
Please keep in mind that we have an edit system. When one finds an error it is their responsibility to send a correction. It doesn't matter if pictures are in place, links have been added, or even if it is "family" duplicates have no place on find a grave and the oldest one ALWAYS trump unless it was originally a burial unknown.
Please remember that the next time.
