James Monroe Hall
There are two listings for my great great uncle, James Monroe Hall. One of the listings has a photo of his headstone the other does not. Since you listed him is there anyway you can combine them? Thank you - Mary Ann

RE: Agnes Perringer-Daly
Hi Karen, No relation but did a little more digging. Per city directories, Martin was in Erie between 1926-1929. In 1929 directory, he resides at 226 E. 10 and has auto repair garage at 118-120 E. 11 St. Agnes is listed as widow of Thomas at 1029 Cascade St. and is a saleslady at Kaufman Co. So I am assuming they met in Erie. There is also a Walter Perringer in Erie who is also an auto mechanic. Relation?? maybe that's why he came to Erie. And yes, on 1930 census in Cleveland.

RE: Burch family
Hi Karen,
Sure, happy to help. I think I gave you that info a few months back. Thomas Birch/Burch is my 3G grandfather. His son Peter Lashley is my 2G grandfather. His son Peter S is my great grandfather. His son Roy Sadie is my grandfather, and his son S. Roy is my dad :).
What chapter of DAR do you belong to? How does your friend descend from Thomas? Thanks!! I'm excited to find out!

Mr. & Mrs. John Fehl, Sr.
picture of Mr. & Mrs. John Fehl, Sr.
Good morning,

I found a wedding picture of Mr. & Mrs. John Fehl, Sr. that was taken in a studio in St. Charles, MO. I found this picture at an antique mall in Washington, MO.

I noticed you had a memorial page for John Fehl and that John & his wife are buried in a cemetery in St. Charles County.

Are you related to them? If so, would you like this picture, I would love to return it to their family.

Farmington, MO

Hi Karen,
Thanks so much for your offer! I am not related to the family but I hope you'll keep looking for their descendents. I just lived close to the cemetery for a few years and took a little time logging its residents.
Your thoughtfulness just made my day.
Thanks again,

Maria Aten
Hi Karen,

I don't really know anything about Maria, I took over her memorial for a contributor who is no longer active.

Maria Aten was originally buried in Lebanon Pioneer, but at some point a car dealership was put on top of part of the cemetery so the headstones (at least) were moved to Lebanon Cemetery about 1/2 mile away. There is a picture on FindaGrave of the headstone of a MOIRA ATEN WEEN who died May 25, 1828 buried in Lebanon Cemetery

The Warren County Ohio Genelogical Society (google Warren County Genealogical Society - Warren County, Ohio) is a fabulous site. Click on ""Cemetery" They also have a picture of MOIRA ATEN WEEN'S headstone . Most likely the original contributor who transcribed the information for Findagrave got the information from WCGS. I'm 100% positive that the headstone of MOIRA ATEN WEEN is actually Mariah (Maria) Monfort Aten. The headstone is very worn and very primitive to begin with. The inscription is faded but basically says MOIRA ATEN wife of PETER ILLEGIBLE - I read it as ATEN but it is faded so someone else read it as WEEN. It also says she died in the 36th year of her age putting her birth year at 1792.

You probably have this already but just in case :)WCGS shows that Mariah Montfort married Pater Aten in 1815 (Go to "Vitals" for a Marriage Index) Family Search dot org has copies of the actual marriage license and returns. They were married July 18,1815 by P. Montfort in Warren Co., Ohio. There was a Rev. Peter Montfort who performed baptisms in the Lebanon Presbyterian Church in 1823. Peter Montfort may have been her father, he was a Rev War soldier, who died in 1823. Another Peter Monfort died in 1824 but his will was done pretty quickly because he was dying from some kind of catastrophic accident, he left everything (horses, crops) to his nephew, Peter Montfort "his brother Henry's son" he may have married them, but he seems pretty young, no wife or children and based on the wording of the will, it was written on an emergency basis. You have to search FamilySearch's marriage records by Mariah Montfort because poor Peter's last name is butchered again. Montfort and Monfort is interchangeable too.

According to Peter's Memorial #45292281(Peter Adrian Aten) here on Findagrave he and Mariah had a least 4 children, after she died he remarried and moved to Preble Co., OH and died in 1842.

If I can find anything else let me know, I'll be happy to try :)
Good Luck!

RE: Susannah & Joel Meador
Thank you so much, Karen, for updating these memorials. I will now delete my memorial for Susannah, since I added it, unknowingly, several months after you first posted her memorial.

Both Joel and Susannah are ancestors of mine, and it is very kind of you to offer to let me maintain them.

Thanks again,

RE: Thomas Vincent Dale
Here is some research we( Sid and Patty Drumheiser) were able to obtain:

The earliest Dale ancestor in Ohio was one THOMAS DALE.(Death Certificate of Thomas Dale) He was possibly the father of THOMAS VINTON DALE, who was born in (West) Virginia 12 March 1843. (1870 U.S, Census)

According to the 1850 U.S. Population Census records for Putnam County, Virginia Thomas Vinton Dale’s mother was listed as MARY DALE, age 24. Mary would have been born around 1826. She was listed as head of household, born in Virginia. Thomas V. Dale was age 6, also born in Virginia. Mary couldn’t read or write. She might also have had a daughter named MARTHA, who was born about 1843. A Martha Dale, age 7, is enumerated with a farmer, Peryman Amos, and his wife Catherine. They appear in the same county, living in dwelling #302. Mary Dale was listed as living in dwelling #309.(1859 U.S, Census, Virginia, Putnam Co., page 289, 46th District) A Thomas, age 14 and a Martha, age 16, appear in the 1860 census living with JOHN GLASSBURN and family. Martha Dale disappears after this from the census records. We have not been very successful in finding any information about the early Dales. Check the Gallia County, Ohio website for death certificates and they will tell you how to obtain one of an individual that died in Gallia County. I do have a copy of Thomas Vinton Dale's death certificate in which I got the early mentioned information. Patty

RE: Thomas & Mary Burch
Thank you so much Karen!! I'm so excited about it! I have not yet applied for DAR. I was working on it but now I'm working ony mother's line to get some info together hopefully by Mother's day (thru her we are descended from the Filles du Roi). You can tell your friend that I'm descended through Thomas, then Peter Lashley,then Peter S,then Roy Sadie,then Sylvester Roy (my dad). I will definitely update as soon as possible.

Dear Karen DK,
Can anyone verify that
Mary Ritchey
Memorial# 138586303
is the daughter of
Samuel M Ritchey Memorial# 14525661
Nancy Dickey Ritchey Memorial# 14525670

It is wonderful to link departed love ones together!

I found Mary Ritchey in walpole cemetery. I found headstone leaning and almost falling over.
I placed a rock behind the tombstone slab and tried to right the stone upright.
I also created the Find a Grave Memorial and recorded the GPS coordinates for location,
I was surprised she was not already listed in Find a Grave.
R/S Terry member (#48430681)
P.S. If anyone give me any information on Walpole cemetery plot spread sheet. My relatives are buired there and I am in the process of replacing the headstones and i am trying to find others that are lost.
Thank you.

re John and Mary Frost
Hi Karen
would you be so kind as to delete the memorials for John Frost 69444321 and wife Mary 69444409.

thanks so much

John Frost
John Frost is my fifth great uncle on my mothers side of the family. When I went looking for him in find a grave I found two that I think are the same man. Memorial numbers 69444321 and 70485386. Both of the bios have some great information, but is there a way to combine information and delete the duplication?

RE: Mary Louisa Judith LaChance Boan
Hi Karen,

Thanks for the message!

Unfortunately on this particular line, Amos Boan is the last person I have researched as of yet, and my grandmother's genealogy file also lacks anything further. So you have actually done a great service to me by supplying this name. Do you happen to know Amos's father's name or any other bits of info on them or have any documents?

As I'm sure you know, family trees are giant, and I haven't been focusing on this line for awhile, but as I refocus on it I am happy to share with you what I find. I will also ask my grandma if she has anything more that she hasn't told me.

Best of luck!

You are more than welcome (for the sponsorship). I have Thomas & Mary (Hester) Wicker listed as my 7th great-grandparents and I'm sorry, no, I do not know the cemetery to which they are buried. My research only shows they both died in Hillsboro District, Chatham Co., NC.

Bonnie Bell
Frenchs of Northern Neck VA
I am going crazy trying to find my great-great grandfather Samuel French who fought in the War of 1812. His wife, my great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Ann French (Haydon) applied for his pension. He was born about 1800 and died in 1843. I called the Historical Society for Northumberland County and they cannot find a record of his death. I am trying to find his birth date and the name of his father and mother. I have read "A History of the Middle New River Settlements..." by David E. Johnston about John French coming to Northern Neck Virginia and their son Matthew who was born in 1737.The article says, "There were several sons... other than Matthew, among them William and James." There is no mention of other sons who may have been Samuel French's father. Have you got any ideas how I can find the name of Samuel French's father? Thank you so much for your research.
