dorothy gaston
My name is dorothy Gaston,my ggrandfather Patrick O'Toole was married to Anna Marie Deaker in Preston county WV in 1877. Her father was Henry Deaker. My ggrandparents left WV and I found them in Omaha Nebraska in 1882 where my granmother Mary Estella was born and later in 1886 her sister Margaret was born. The story handed down to me by my Mom was that they left Nebraska for a "drier climate" for Anna's health. They made their way to Bigfoot tx where she died. My mother tried to find her grave but was unable,however, I have recently been successful and have located it. I will be placing a tombstone there shortly. Would love to hear more about "our" family. I can be reached at or thru

Wolf famy
Donna ,

I saw your message for Dustin Wolfe.

My ancestor Simon Wolf who stayed here in Germany, is the younger brother of Jacob Wolf the Elder . I am working on a book about the Wolf family, also like your cousin Icia Wolfe. I have many informations about my german family lines und about the other later Wolf emigrant lines from Oberauerbach in Germany and their relatives.

I have the family back until to Wendel Wolf born about 1580 in Germany. He was our first Wolf ancestor

I am looking for informations about the sons of Jacob.
His son Johann Jacob born 20. März 1731 and daughter Eleonore born 12. Jul 1734,( First wife of George Coffield/ Kauffeld) were born in Oberauerbach , Palatine ,Germany

I know that Jacob died 1779 and Augustin 1782 I suppose that they might have died in War because they had been to young but don t know where.

There is a story that Martin Whetzel,brother to Mountain Jakes wife Eva Christina, was captured by indians together with his Cousin John Wolf.
John was burned by these indians and Martin escaped later.

I think this John might have been a grandson of Jacob the elder, perhaps an brother to Mountain Jake.

But he coudn t have been a cousin to Martin , I think this is an wrong information and he was a cousin to Martins wife Mary Coffield/Kauffelt.

Can you please ask your cousin Icia if she knows more .

Best wishes

Wolfe Line
From researching the Wolfe line does John Jacob Wolfe 1754 "Mountain Jake" sound like a name you would know he married Christina Wetzel 1759 they moved from the Stoney Creek section of Shenandoah County to the Wetzel settlement in what is now Preston County WV any information would help

No worries Donna, I understand. Two others also posted a memorial for her. Thanks for the offer to transfer any of my ancestors too. I already started ones for my two direct ancestors buried there Nicholas and Mary Borgman.

Keep up the helpful work of posting cemeteries! I've already been helped by people like you who have been doing such great work!

Hello regarding your memorial Memorial# 127922556 for my cousin, Mary Cecelia Borgman, she is very much alive and well. I just visited with her in April. She is living in the house her father built. If you could please remove the memorial it'd be appreciated. Eric Borgman

Thank you for the Transfer, it much appreciated !!!

You provided an obituary for her that gives her name as "Mary Bell Pratt" but her headstone says "May Bell Pratt". The obit gives her husband as William L. Pratt, which seems to go with the link I already have, but in a previous message you gave the name of "Ella Funk Bolyard" as William L. Pratt's wife - in the obit "Ella Funk Bolyard" is listed as Mary (or May's) mother. Just want clarification to make sure this info is for this memorial.

Re: William Lee Pratt
You left a message that his wife was Ella FUNK BOLYARD. I have his wife as May Bell Pratt. Was a Ella a second wife? Do you have a memorial number for her?

You sent me a request to link Joseph Brailer to Victoria Brailer, but did not indicate what relationship they were to each other. There is 20 years age difference, is he her husband or her father? Please indicate relationship on you link requests. Thanks!

RE: Sally Franks and spouse
Donna, you have found them a good home!

There are those Find A Graver's, that finds the graves and adds them.

Then there are those that do the menial task of linking and adding a bio to those they run across.

I am the latter; I clean up the ones that...are.

I research the devil out of my family lineage, even if they are 16 x removed or in-laws of in-laws in-laws. I want to link everyone one up and add at least 4 lines of info to each person, we all deserve at least that. And while I am linking my family up...I find others in the same cemetery and end up linking them up. I have this insatiable pulling from beyond, that requires me solve mysteries and link those lost, with those found...

I will be more than happy to take the Franks off your hands. Revisit them anytime you wish and you will see what I mean.

Thank you so much!
