RE: Jack I. Smith

Thanks for asking. Yes, worked as a drafter in the same engineering department as Jack.

Jack was a meticulous engineer as well as a kind teacher and was highly respected for his quality of work. He worked closely with Roy Haskell (Find A Grave #66282406).

I remember Jack as slightly built, always wearing in a crisply laundered shirt usually light blue. He was a kind and polite person and I remember him fondly.

RE: Pipes memorials in White Rose

Scott ...

A very interesting read. Thanks for sharing.

BTW ... I have found Lucy Wheeler Pipes' daughter, Martha Iona Pipes. She married Robert Hendrix at Limestone, Alabama, in 1889. They had one daughter, Zoe, in May, 1891, before moving to Texas. Then, they had Ida May Hendrix (1893) and five more children before she passed away in 1913. Robert followed her in 1917. They are at rest in Union Grove Cemetery near Wills Point and I have established & linked Find A Grave memorials for them. A stone marker was apparently placed there by Zoe some years later on which the surname has been misspelled "Hendricks" and the year of Robert death should be "1917", according to a published obituary. The obituary also indicates that he was survived by a wife. So, he must also have re-married during those four years before his death.

RE: Pipes memorials in White Rose

Thank you ... Scott

I enjoy doing it even when I don't have a dog in the fight. At my age, it helps to keep my mind sharp

Are you related somehow to the Pipes family group? ... or maybe to the McGuire family group?

Mrs. G W Pipes

Nope! I was apparently wrong.

Upon further investigation, I have found more reliable clues which suggest that her maiden name was not Pipes.

RE: Mrs G W Pipes ~ White Rose

In case you're interested ... upon further research, I have uncovered some evidence that Angelina McGuire's maiden name may have been "Pipes"; and she may have been a relative of George (an aunt), which would explain why George was enumerated in the household of William B & Angelina McGuire during the U S Census of 1860.

Mrs G W Pipes ~ White Rose


Regarding your photo request, I have tried to get a lead on when this person may have passed on and where she might have been placed at rest within White Rose, so far with little success.

Since you have also requested a photo for (what appears to be) her first husband (William McGuire) back in Tennessee, I assume that your interest is linked with the McGuire ancestry ... rather than Pipes; and, as you probably know already, her given name was Angaline/Angeline. She was somewhat older than George Pipes; and they were enumerated together, along with their son (James J Pipes), in Van Zandt County during the U S Census of 1900; however, George was subsequently enumerated as a widower in the U S Census of 1910. So, she obviously passed away sometime during the time interval between those two censuses. George passed away in 1937; and James J passed away in 1957. Both of them were reported to have been buried at White Rose; however, neither they nor Angelina are listed in the published cemetery inventory. Therefore, if they are indeed at rest there, their burial spaces are likely not marked with a stone (or stones).

RE: Thomas Richards
Thanks Scott :) I have seen the portrait..there are a couple of others around as well. The Artists Mother painted by John Opie is fabulous! Not many people can say they have a picture of their 7 great grandmother! There are also a couple painted by Edward Opie (great nephew of John Opie) A Self Portrait and a recent discovery of a painting of his sister Joanna Opie. I would love to learn more about Thomas'connection, I have a possible Mary Opie I am thinking maybe, but its like my Tonkin was a popular name back in the day!

Thomas Richards
Hi Scott I noticed you mentioned in your information on John Richards buried St Agnes 1772, that 2 of his children married into the Opie family (John Opie the artist). I have the daughter Mary Richards marrying William Opie (nephew of John Opie) they are my 5 great grandparents, and am interested to learn more about Thomas Richards and the Opie that he married. I have located a marriage to a Mary Opee (Opie) in 1768 in St Agnes, but not sure of whom she is descended. Can you give me any more info? Cheers.

Daniel Dejarnette
I am impressed with your research of the Dejarnette family. Are you a decedent? My mother did extensive research in the 80's, unfortunately she passed away before she had completed her research. I have her notes and it appears she was leaning more towards the Dejarnettes arriving in Canada. I know she was unable to find any manifest that included any Dejarnette. It seems you have found more documentation, I would love to learn more.

RE: Find a Grave Request
Hi Scott. We are experiencing extremely hazardous weather - high winds, deep flooding etc, so unable to access the Graveyard to date. As soon as the weather improves I will visit and attempt to find and photograph the relevant graves.
Recently the Vicar has had a massive cleanup of the Graveyard site, so finding the relevant graves, should be easier, as the last time I visited the graveyard site it was very difficult to find graves within the 'old site'. The weather hasn't eased off yet, although as soon as the weather improves I will attempt to find and upload photos etc. I have the particulars of the search terms permanently in my wallet, so as soon as weather improves I will visit the Graveyard site. I hope you and your family is in good health. Carl

Find a Grave Request
Hi Scott
I am interested in fulfilling your request for William Smith and Mary Smith. I used to live within 100 yards of the described Church Graveyard - Ebenezer URC Pontnewynydd, I now live within travelling distance of the requested Graveyard - about ten miles. I will attempt to visit the site as requested within two to four weeks - assuming free from snow, as snow can cause disruption in this very hilly area. Carl

RE: Anna Sears
I hope I have everyting right about Anna. A couple of years ago I compiled several pages of notes on the Meek/Meeks families I could find.
Of course, I have by now forgotten what I have, so it is a good thing that I kept my notes.
One thing I do recall is the history books may not contain all of the right information on the Meek families and I am still not entirely sure who her grandfather was. So maybe now is as good a time as any to do a bit more looking.
I will keep you posted as to what I find.
Thanks again

Anna Meek Sears
Dear Scott;
Anna and her husband Rev. James Sears were my 5th Great Grandparents. You posted Anna while I posted James and several other family members.
It turns out there are 3 seperate Sears grave yards on the James Sears Farm on Louden Road in Whitley County, Kentucky. They just a few hundred feet or less from each other and form a triangle. Several graves have been lumped together in one grave yard. John S Sears, Elizabeth Wheeler Sears (my 4th Great Grandparents) and at least four other graves are right next to the road while James, Anna and a few others more in the back 40. So to speak and can not be seen from the road.. I wanted to talk to you before adding the 3rd Sears Cemetery on the Sears farm. I want to know if you would mind moving Anna's grave a few hundred feet once I add the 3rd cemetery? Or if you would mind my asking for a transfer so I may move her?

RE: Ann Froggatt
Hi Scott

Happy to help, as the graveyard is in the next village to where I live and had a lovely walk over there this morning with my husband and son. Sadly I couldn't locate her husband's grave for you. There are a number of graves in the churchyard that are either unmarked or the headstones are badly eroded so making it impossible to read any inscription. If you need any others locating in Derbyshire let me know & I'll see what I can do to help.

RE: Aaron Coppock
The death date is incorrect as it was originally record in the Quaker old style way of dating as per "A Collection of Memorials Concerning Divers Deceased Ministers and Others of the People called Quakers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Parts Adjacent; printed by Joseph Crukshank; Market St, Philadelphia, 1787, pages 64-5". It states he was born the 25th day of the 10th month,1662(5), which is Dec 25, 1662(5) in the new style or today's dating system. Also, states he died the 10th day of the 10th month, 1725 and buried the 12th day of the same month, which would be Dec 10, 1725 and Dec 12, 1725 respectively.
However, it shows in the Chester County, Pennsylvania Wills, 1713-1825, that his will was written Oct. 3, 1726 and proved Dec 17, 1726. Which fits with the new style of dating, except for the year given in each document differs.

I hope to come to New Hope Baptist Church on the 10th of Oct. of this year. Do you live close to there? I am of the lineage of Peter Parkey and Mary "Polly" Shoun and I just found where John is buried. Do you show John's lineage being from Amos Parkey or Hugh Parkey? I have seen it both ways with him. Would it be possible, if you live close to it, to meet with you and help me find where you think he is buried? I would also just like to meet with you, as being a distant relative. I will be meeting on the 13th with some other cousins, we will meet in Tazewell at the Imperial Inn. Would like to meet with you before if possible. Thank you for any help you can give us. You can email me at Have met with a lot of cousins on facebook also. Thank you Pat
