RE: Annie Virginia Craven
Great minds think alike! I am pouring over Pippenger's book as we speak!

Thanks so much for your help! The 2 Memorials have been transferred to me and I am adding more info to both.

Annie Virginia Craven
Thanks for your response. You might also want to delete Memorial #116107361 Craven Bacigalupo
as the other person had also created a Memorial page for her husband.

Thanks for your kind post. I see that Edward's date of birth now matches his headstone: 1881. Matilda's still shows tens years later than on headstone. If she had been born in 1895, and then she would have been 10 years old when she had her son John. Maybe you are still gathering details tho...??

RE: Robert Wilson
Dear Mrs Bee,
Concerning Robert Wilson (1663-1717), I got most of my information from this web page:

Which itself refers to the manuscript collection of the NEHGR Library for the Writings of Kenneth C Stevens and then some personal correspondence with him to confirm the Wilson line.

If you have any other questions I will be happy to look more deeply. Thank you for creating this memorial. Robert is an ancestor of my wife and I am trying to link all of her ancestors on FindAGrave.

Emily Maverick Stoutenburgh Entwisle
Findagrave #49274006

Thank you for the information about Emily's death. It makes sense that she died in DC because in 1910 she was living there with the Pickens (her daughter). I'll be happy to change the location. I must have been operating on the assumption that she died in Alexandria because that's where she was buried. I researched this back in the 1990's and really need to do some follow-up on it with information that is now available.

The death information I have is from the following:

Family History Library Film #0030166 "Episcopal Church Record, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Alexandria, VA Register 1833-1933" gave burial date as 3 Feb 1915. I have in my files that it also showed a death date of 1 Feb 1915. (This would fall in line with the it being in the Washington Post on the 2nd & 3rd of Feb.)

Alexandria Gazette, 31 Dec 1915 p2 had a death date of 11 Feb 1915 ( I figured this was a typo and meant to be 1 Feb 1915).

I also have a note that FHL Film #849494 "Fairfax Co., Virginia, Cemeteries 1800-1904" by Mrs. Carrie White Avery shows her buried at Ivy Hill not St. Paul's. I don't believe this information to be correct. I'll check back in my files which are in storage at the moment on this discrepancy before I do any changing as to location.

RE: George Humphry, Jr
Thank you for thinking of me & sending along the transcription of the headstone.

As you can see from the photo, the inscription as photo'ed is nearly illegible so I requested a new photo hoping that who ever does eventually take it has a flashlight they can shine up, or down if they have an extra pair of hands along w/them, across the face of the stone to create some shadowing so the inscription can be read. Or maybe the volunteer will be in the cemetery when the sun's around & making the inscription legible.

I find those tombstone inscription books invaluable. The earlier the book, the better in some instances.

The cemetery in NJ where my 5th great grandparents is an example of how useful those books are. A fire in 1937 destroyed all the records inc burial records. Efforts to fight the fire also resulted in som stones being damaged or gone who knows where. And now, many of the older 1700's and even 1800's when they're marble stones are illegible.

Fortunately, at the turn of the century 2 separate people went out into the cemetery 1906 & then in 1931 just a few years before the fire, and recorded the headstones. So even if the grave now has no stone or the inscription is too weathered & eroded to be read, there are records for many of them that weren't in such bad shape back in 1906 & 1931.

I've found where George died so I should probably enter my own edit since the memorial creator will be adding yours & can do mine at the same time.

Thanks for the inscription transcription.

RE: Harriet Prettyman
Her mother has two memorials (i.e., one is a duplicate), one assigned to one cem. and the other to an adjoining cem. I think it is this way: your memorial was created later, but it may be assigned to its proper cemetery. The other memorial was created earlier but they might not have realized that they had crossed a cemetery boundary. Her mother is either:
Find A Grave Memorial# 67841714 (yours of 2011)
in St. Paul's Cem. with plot
Find A Grave Memorial# 27565185 (CryptoGram, 2008)
in the Methodist Protestant Cem. w/o plot

Sorry - a minor correction on the brief account of Cousin Charlotte Taylor I just submitted. Her father was Lt. John Sinclair Blackburn, C.S.A. I momentarily confused him and his son Dr. Richard S. Blackburn. Thanks!

Thanks for YOUR hard work. Charlotte Moncure Blackburn Shepherd was the daughter of Susan Beverly Taylor Blackburn, and many of her immediate family members are buried at Monticello, as she was a GG granddaughter of Mr. Jefferson.

RE: Hawk memorials
Mrs. Bee,
Thank you. I do care. The Hawks are members of my family tree on Ancestry. Even though I never met them, their lives and dates of their time on Earth matters to me. They deserve this respect. I appreciate you taking care of this for me.

RE: Lula Mclean
Dear Mrs Bee,

Thanks for the quick reply. It would be nice to know what happened to the girl with the famous rag doll that the Yankees took!! I suppose there must be a death cert somewhere.

Best wishes,

Lula Mclean

I might have asked this before but is it known of what Lula Mclean died from. I see by her headstone she would have only been 29.

RE: Edith Moncure
Please refer to pages 17 & 18 of "Colonial Families of the Southern States of America..." by Stella Pickett Hardy...

"Catherine Cary (b 11/15/1800 d Nov 1850), married May 1824 Henry Wood Moncure of Richmond, VA (b 7/12/1800 d 11/15/1866); son of William and Sarah Elizabeth (Henry) Moncure of Windsor Forest, Stafford Co, VA. Issue:

6 13. John Jacquelin Ambler, M. D., C. S. A., b. 1843 ; m. 1877, Mary Edith Fairfax, dau. of Dr. Orlando and Mary Ran dolph (Cary) Fairfax, and had issue: 1. Rosamond Cary, b. 1882; 2. Orlando, b. 1883; d. in infancy; 3. Randolph, b. 1886. (See Cary lineage.)"

Note - this is excerpted from the above material from the section addressing the Ambler Family. The Google books page reference is: xxxviii/704

If you'd like to look at my Ancestry.Com page for additional documentation, please feel free...

While I do not have definitive proof that this, I believe that the information that I do have is reasonably convincing.

Both of these say Kate Hall with same birth and death date. Not sure how this all works as I am beginning my ancestry search with my mother.

This lady was my Great grandmother and my mothers Grand mother on her dad's side. She was born 10 March 1878 and died 7 Jan all our research and death certificates.

Elizabeth Hodgson 1800-1868
Mrs Bee, hello from the other side of the Pond. Am building a Family tree for a friend who family originated from County Durham, England. The families name is Gardiner/Gardener. Re your memorial for Elizabeth Hodgson and family on this site, I believe I have found her family which ties in with what u have. So Elizabeth Gardiner was born 11th May 1800 and baptised on the 29th June 1800 at St Johns Chapel, Co Durham. Her parents were James and Ann Gardiner (formerly Hodgson). As you say the family is present on the 1851 English Census with Ann Gardiner recorded as "Mother". In my experience its not unusual for the Mother in Law to be recorded as Mother. If you have access to or you can find my Gardiner Family Tree in "Public Family Trees" under my user name of GTX958. The baptism and birth records come from Parish Records. You can contact me on my direct email of
Regards, Mike Greatorex, Harrogate, England.
