RE: Lydia Giffin
The picture below the one you speak of on Lydia's memorial is in fact of Lydia (& Jane) Giffin. I know the clarity isn't as it is for Robert/Susan's side but it is the best I got the day it was taken. There is a picture on Jane's memorial with a shot of the full view of the stone; Jane/Lydia are on the left side while Robert/Susan are one right side of this picture.
*The same closeup photo of Jane/Lydia's side is on both of their memorials: Jane on the top half and Lydia on the bottom.
**If I remember correctly, Jane/Lydia's side is etched while Robert/Susan's side is engraved; probably why there is a difference in appearance. I will try to get another shot of Jane/Lydia's side on a cloudy day and perhaps this will improve the quality. Thanks for the inquiry!

Ralph Matthew Weser #24571687
Ralph Weser was my father and I have a wealth of information on his life. Which would be easier? Should I send the information to you or would you consider letting me take over his site. If it is the latter, I will certainly give you full credit for your work. My email address is wood

Your work has made all my family history available to me and I was ecstatic to find my father and all my relative's graves at my finger tips. My father died when I was eight and Mom was so busy working to support us that most of our history was lost to me. Thanks to you and others like you, I now know where I came from. You are an angel!!!

Thank you so much,
Susan West

RE: Barbara Giffen
You are welcome, Terry. I'm still working on finding Helen Giffen's final resting place. Local historical society had no info on her after 1985, and the 1987 newspaper clipping of her obit is missing from the archives. I'll keep on it though. Take care, Mike

Clara Griffith
Terry, I am doing research on Clara O'Patroit (O'Patrey) Griffith, born in Ohio. She married George W. Coop and lived in Kentucky after she married. She was born around 1850 -51 and died in 1911. And help appreciated.

John Giffen (1831-)
This was your letter to me: "I sent u an edit for the spelling of this surname and I doubt his son was the John A Giffin, he is linked to. John A. Giffin was born in PA. This John Giffen was from NY."

Your requested changes were made. I am sorry they were not in the timely fashion you expected.

The memorial that comes up on my screen, Find A Grave Memorial# 97278992, John Giffen, does not link any family members, a bio or any notes concerning any family members, so I cannot help you with that part of your request.

If have any further changes, please let me know.

Terry, I just saw that a contributor posted headstone photos for the Giffens in Santa Cruz. His photos are excellent. Very timely. My email addy has been down for a week, so this is the only way I can communicate for now. Something about my provider changing over to U-verse. Back soon, I hope. Later, M.

Glenn & Rose Giffen
Terry, I thought I'd let you manage these two memorials I just entered. I will be managing their daughter, Barbara at least until such time as I can find her actual resting place. Regarding Helen, she was not buried along side her husband, Guy, as a volunteer photo taker discovered the other day. Perhaps your newspaper connection can turn up her elusive obituary, ref: San Jose Mercury News, Oct. 30, 1987, 522, vol III. Cheers, M.

RE: East Cyruston Cemetery
Yes Terry that cemetery is not in the Lincoln Co Marsh book on Cemeteries that I can find, so it has either been over looked, is going by another name or is an African American cemetery which the Marsh book did not cover as far as I can tell. I have been passing by that cemetery for years thinking I would stop and survey it and maybe the time has come. I have no idea what I will find but the marking of the cemetery on Google maps looks authentic. It is next to a major farm operation of silos etc. so permission is a must with all that expensive equipment around. The cemetery on Google & looks large and well defined east/west rectangle, but covered in brush. Maybe there are lots of graves. Often if an old cemetery is African American there could be old white settlers buried there too as in the many instances where a white plantation family starts a graveyard. They all die out or leave town and the remaining black families around take over the graveyard and add their own to the graveyard in the adjoining perimeter of the cemetery. So as for the East Cryuston who knows. Maybe your Millicans are in that situation. If they were large slave owners this situation has a higher probability. About the only clue of the above is the settlers grave stones are sometimes 90 to a 100 years earlier than the predominate
surrounding tombstone and that is no absolute proof either.

Hope this helps but probably not much.

RE: John Giffen/s of Cole, MO
I typed that wrong, should have been 1784. None of my Giffin's have done a DNA test. Uncle Ross is dead and my cousins don't seem to be interested in my genealogy. You are doing good work. I'm big into research documentation so I don't change info without documentation. Sometimes family researchers just don't understand, but if they did research for Linage societies they would understand how important it is.

John Giffin (Giffen)
Hi Terry,

I was recently up in your neck of the woods and visited Columbus where many of my family are buried. I was so sad to see my McNamee-Hite Cemetery vandalized and in horrible shape. I do know that John's stone could very well be Jan but it is not legible which brings to mind, "Where did you prove the 1789 date from?" I will check out the other things you noticed. Niece of Ross Giffin, cousin of Reggie Giffin, Douglas, and Roger Giffin.

RE: David Bunting Hartley
Thank you for responding to my message. I did make a formal picture request. I haven't received a response. I made the request several months ago. I can't make another request. Do you have any ideas, who might be able to do this for me? I'm afraid the request will be over looked, because it isn't a current request.
I'm in need of this picture, all documents, as proof were destroyed. Any ideas?

Thank you

Hello Terry, I noticed your profile and research on the Giffin family. I thought #50892108 might have been one from Tn. You might want to take a look at my memorials and see if there are any connections. Otto

Hello, I add Marie's parents to your edit. I took my information from the census and a family tree on Ancestry. On the census she sometimes went by Maria or sometimes Annie. Depended on her age I guess. Joanne
