Bearslers in wrong cemetery
Hi Diane,

We were in Odd Fellows Cemetery in Pottsville today taking pictures of the markers of the Bearstlers for a friend. You have created memorials for Frank (121115880) Simon (1211108754) and Sarah (121108555) Bearstler and have them in the wrong cemetery. If you would please move them to the correct cemetery I will upload the photos that we took.

They are all in the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Pottsville.

Thank you.

Brenda & Pete

RE: Beacham
Well, I will work it from the other way around. My great grandmother was Sarah Jane Beacham Viner.She died in Laramie, Wyoming in 1921 and is buried in our Greenhill Cemetery. She was married to Frank Lot Viner. Sarah's father was William Beacham. He was killed in a mining accident in 1892 and is buried in Aspen, CO. His mother was Elizabeth Russell Beacham. She died here in Laramie, Wyoming in 1909 and is also buried in Greenhill Cemetery. Her husband was John Beacham. He died before ELizabeth and some of her children moved to Wyoming in 1876. He died in 1875 in Pennsylvania, but I don't know where. He was supposedly born in Somerset, England about 1824. A bit more information. William Beacham (the one that died in Aspen) had a brother who was named John. He died here in Laramie in 1918 and is also buried in Greenhill Cemetery. I am positive about all the above information EXCEPT that for John Beacham who was born in Somerset. For all the others I have obits and for all but William, cemetery listings. I have no information on the parents of John Beacham (the husband of the Elizabeth who came to Wyoming in 1876) other than a possible birth year. That information was obtained from If you want the obits that I have, you can contact me directly.

RE: John Franklin Wilson
He's in the Wilson-McLarin cemetery in Atlanta. You know that, but it's not obvious to people reading these public messages. I'm glad you appreciate the photos. I wasn't at my best photographing that cemetery. It is very difficult to access. The gate is locked, and it is surrounded by a chain-link fence. It's up a hill, and heavily overgrown. It would be good to find out who controls the gate. It doesn't feel safe, although we didn't see anyone around. It's in an industrial area. Junkyard dogs are barking nearby. We should talk. Although John F Wilson and Mary Palmer Stubbs are not my ancestors, I am related to both of them separately.

Diane, I added the family links for John Henry Keister that you requested. John's mother, Elizabeth Olinger, was my great, great grandmother's sister. Small world, ain't it? Have a great day, cousin. Ken

Hi Diane - I added the parents links and updated her maiden name to show as Kipps based on parents information. Also since she is a relative of yours I just transferred management to you. Take care - Cindy

RE: Lula Kipps Summerell
You are very welcome! I would like to ask that you correct her name according to her stone unless the name on her stone was a nickname. On her stone it reads Lulie. I also added the photo to her husband, his parents headstone photo as well as her husbands sister.
If you need more photos from this cemetery or another in the area please feel free to let me know. I do have websites that have all the cemeteries that I and others have photographed and you can view them by county from the NC site at
Just click on the county you want to see then click on the cemetery link and if the county isn't linked you can try the cemetery site:

If I don't have the cemetery online just let me know what county and the location and I have people in a lot of places all over NC that can try and get the cemetery photographed so that I can post it online for you.

RE: John Mitchell
Hi I'm looking to use him as my ancestor to join DAR as well. A copy of his will would be great if you could provide it. I'm missing proof that he is the father of Elizabeth Deaton (Nee Mitchell). If you have anything that proves that, I would really appreciate a copy. My email is

You are listed as the creator of John Mitchell's (May 4, 1763 - May 6, 1836). I am hoping you can provide me with where you found the information regarding his service and family.

RE: McDaniel
Any idea why with the transfer and addition of data, some of the previously linked children of Roy Lee McDaniel # 36145385 would have disappeared?

Family links:

Leroy Eugene McDaniel (1917 - 1988)*52419409
Vivian Odell McDaniel (1919 - 1998)*52419833

Pam B-F
Old Cooper Cemetery
Hello, Diane! I apologize for taking time to get back to you, as I have been moving. I'll post here for you the info I have. Many of the Lucas lines and genealogical trees state the same, that John and Mary are both buried in the Old Cooper Cemetery in the NE corner of the cemetery.

It is located about 2 1/2 miles east of Calfee (Knob) Mountain in Virginia. Calfee Knob is about 2.6 miles southwest of Riner, Virginia. This info came from papers left at the Floyd County, Virginia Library entitled "The Lucas Family"


I have no exact location, however, someone else mentioned calling George Lucas, president of Calfee's Mountain Timber Inc. located in Riner, VA. 540) 382-9509. He probably is a good lead and knows the area.

Hope that helps. Wish I had more info for you. Blessings!
