RE: Blas Crespo
I don't mind waiting, it can take a while sometimes, I just responded to messages about Bartola Solana that I apparently got back in September. Ooops!
Catalina's dad was from France, he went to Minorca during the short time it was under French rule and married a local girl. Vila or Villa is a name known to come from the island, other of her cousins also joined the Turnbull colony at New Smyrna.
I don't remember if I have a copy of the marriage document in my book of records, but will check for sure. If I don't find it, I'm going to be at the SAHS Research library on Friday anyway, I can ask them about it.

Blas Crespo
Hey
I believe Blas Crespo's marriage record can be found at the St. Augustine Historical Society's Research Library. I have it in a list of sorted marriages that a cousin was working on prior to moving out of state. He told me Dr. Tingley would know what documents he was working from to create the marriages list.
Also, Catalina was of Minorcan descent and was born in and living in St. Augustine.

I have dates for these children. I would be so happy if you are related and have the documentation we all are looking for!

Laredo Cemetery Photo Request
I am heading to Laredo next spring and am going to try to knock out some of the photo requests. I was wondering if you could try to get the plot number for me as it's a big cemetery. Thanks Lynne

Teresa D. Sardiñas
Agatha Antonia Pons descendant
Hello Raymond B. first of all thank you very much for your beautiful work!
Mathias Pons and Juana Villa were my 5th great-grandparents; their daughter Agatha Antonia Pons was my 4th great-grandmother.
I wanted to ask you if you know a living descendand; thru the maternal line that goes back to Juana Villa. I did a mtdna test and I want to share my results with any of Juana Villa's daughter, that test doesn't change, we ashould have the same haplogroup.
Also, I wouls like to know if you have seen the grave of Juan Marcela Pons (aka Jane), daughter of Francisco Domingo Pons, and Mariana Villalonga. Juana Marcela married (?) Carlos Canto, and had two children Feliciano Canto that died and Agatha Camilla Henrietta Canto, (thanks to Leonard McCown for all of these records). I know Feliciano died as an infant; however Carmilla (aka Carmina) was in the Nassau County census in 1850. I don't know who she married.
For what I see you and I are distant cousins!

I hope you can guide me on this search.
God bless,
Teresa D. Sardinas

John Marin Faucett
Hello,

John Marin Faucett was my great-grandfather. His daughter, Millicent Etta Marin, was my grandmother; and her son Henry Robert Maxey was my father. I grew up not knowing much about my father's side of the family. I did know my grandmother, Millicent. Do you know why the name Faucett was dropped? I find it curious that my grandmother used Marin as her maiden name. I have her bible, and it is written that way. However, on her death certificate, her father is listed as John Faucett. Also, you list his wife as Lura Jane Flagg Mudge. My great-grandmother was Laura Annie Marquis Haddock. Thank you for any information you might be able to provide.

Daniel Mezick
John Tilney
I was wondering what information, if any more, you may have of his transporting people to the US. I am a direct descendant of Julian Messick who was said to be transported to Accomack, Virginia in March 1665 by a John Tilney and. I was wondering if this was the same John Tilney. I am trying to fire out from where he was transported from and where my line goes before him. Thank you for any help.

Hannah Belton
Hanna Belton, the wife of John Pitts 1769-January 15, 1916, went west with the daughter Milly Pitts and Rev. David Monroe Simmons.
She is buried with them at Linden, Cass County, Texas. I believe she is buried in the same cemetery as her daughter, Martha Pitts Simmons and husband
Rev. David Monroe Simmons at Old Bear Creek Cemetery.
Hannah Belton Pitts is my 4th great grandmother along with 3 other relations.

RE: Eugene Herbert Blackshear
It's the next to the last marker in the second row on the left side of the road when you come thru the main entrance of the cemetery.

RE: Eugene Herbert Blackshear
It's the only Blackshear grave without a name on it, so if that isn't it then his grave is unmarked.
It just has the letters Blackshear attached by screws. I wondered if there wasn't a regular tombstone mounted on that base that was destroyed by a falling tree or something There's no debris or anything around it now, but it could have happened years ago.

It's on the left when you come in the main entrance.
I'll have to ride thru again and find a marker you can use to locate it.

You have several Hartsfield memorials located in the Mount Zion cemetery in Clayton Co GA that are dupes. Also, you have used my photos without my permission, taking credit for them yourself, which is against Findagrave rules.

Charles Floyd 1747-1820
Charles Floyd 1747-1820 was my 6th great granduncle.
I'm just now starting out doing my tree. His brother John 6th great grandfather was the father to William Floyd and his daughter Martha Patsy is my 4th great grandmother. That is where my confusion comes in cause everything I've found list her as a FLOOD not FLOYD? Is this something you can help me with?

Thanks

I didn't not see him with the other two but will be looking for him as I go.. name is Jesse.. Thanks for the Thanks and I will try to get a better picture, but with that black headstone it want be easy. totsie

Writing is very hard to read. All I could make out was the Pitts and the birth date and the death date. This headstone stands next to the one for Alice Pitts.

I will retake a picture the next time I am in that area.. maybe at a different angle I can get a better picture...

RE: John Franck Shine
The article said he died at the home of son Daniel W. Shine in Twiggs County. I'll check the book when I get home and see if it sheds any light on this.

Raymond, All I know is that I also have a book that says he is buried where I took the photo. Would be interesting if there is marker for him in the Blackshear Cemetery you have. I also remember I have newspaper article stating he died at the home of his son in Twiggs County, which would place him atthe property where I took the photo. I'll check the newspaper article to see if mentions the place of burial. Shawn

RE: George M Torbet & Family
You're welcome. I did think it was odd that you didn't have them set up as I remembered that you had been looking for Torbet's at Cedar Lawn. I thought maybe they were not related. It was when I went to see if there were parent's for George that I saw a memorial for him linked to his parents. Then I realized you probably didn't know where they were buried.

I hope this helps. Unfortunately, I had already deleted the original photos after uploading them to FindAGrave.

Next time I find a Torbet, I'll let you know first.

George M Torbet & Family
Raymond,

I didn't realize that you had George and his family on FindAGrave in an unknown burial location until AFTER I had already added them, linked them and uploaded photos. They are buried in Laurel Grove Cemetery, Totowa, NJ.

Instead of deleting all of them and reuploading the photos, I am going to transfer them to you. There is probably less work involved in adding what you had on their memorials to the ones I made.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Vicki

Hi, Raymond... I'll be going back this week most likely. I've gone through my photos and do not have a photo of a stone for her husband.

The two men who helped cut enough of a pathway through to reach the gravestones, but there remains so much in the way of brambles, vines, leaves, etc. A blower would probably help. Am considering asking the fellows to return a little later next month when it gets even cooler.

The cemetery is spread out with perhaps five fenced areas, though the fences for the most part have fallen or been damaged and laying on the ground in parts. There are so many sunken graves and far more brick cairns that I did not see on my first visit to the cemetery. Moseley's have a lot with a monument/obelisk that I did not see at that time also. When all the leave fall, some of it will be more visible.

I'm feeling quite "attached" now and would love to see the cemetery restored to some semblance of order. I found three stones that must have been added in the last five years perhaps - they are essentially "new" but the dates are very old. So someone cares about their ancestors. Anyway, if you'd like some of the photos to see what I saw this past week, I'll send them to you if you will email me at the gravestoner1008 email address at my F/G site. Thanks, Linda
