Hi. I'm a Helton researcher and the Reeds are intermarried a few generations . You stated information was provided by Alan Jackson. Can you please get me in touch with him? I've got a 40 year collection of Helton and Reed genealogy and even have picture s of Moses and a couple of his children. My number is 219-252-7150 recently retired to Belle Chasse LA. Thanks in advance! Russ Layhew

RE: James & Polly Clark
I must have typed that wrong.

Susan married Samuel Davidson. Bert Davidson married Bertha Brooks (my great grand parents). Their daughter Bernice Mabel married Amos Ronk (my grandparents. My mother Lou Ellen was one of their 5 daughters.

It looks like we would be 4th cousins.

James & Polly Clark

I saw on another person's comments James & Polly are you great-great-great grandparents. That is the same relationship that I have with them. Their daughter Susan married Bert Davidson. He is the father of my grandmother Bernice Mabel Davidson. She married Amos Ronk and they are my mother's parents.

How are you descended from them? I live in Brownsburg, IN. I have first cousins in Crawfordsville who are also descended from James and Polly.

Samuel Dailey - 66503823
Hi Steve! How're you doing? I just got your note about the incorrect headstone photo for Samuel Dailey on my memorial. Actually, someone else added the photo to my memorial, so I will let them know it's for the wrong Samuel Dailey. Thank you so much for the heads up!! : )

"Double" Asterisks
You wrote: "Hi, I'm confused as to the double asterisks that represent half siblings? How are they half siblings?"

In some cases the children are NOT linked to both of their parents. I can only link the ones to which I have control/management. Therefore, if you wanted John Sutton Morse (1785 - 1834)** to have just the one asterisk, indicating sibling status, you would have to have him be linked to BOTH his mother/father ... currently he is linked only to his father, David.

Hope that explains what I think is the reason.

Henry Voorhis
I added your obit to Henry's memorial. Even though the obit said Friday night, maybe it should have said Saturday morning. Was the death before or after midnight? Maybe that's where the mistake was made. Also, I view Find a Grave as just another source. We would like to think headstones are always correct, but they aren't, either deliberately or accidentally. Either way I like to post what the headstone actually says (along with other facts).

RE: Hopewell Cemetery
I had someone else look at the photos that I see sideways on his computer and he said they're sideways on his, too. This is just a guess but my photo program will allow me to flip pictures around to right-side-up but it doesn't actually flip the file, so if you look at the file outside of your picture program, it will still be sideways. Could that be it?

RE: Hopewell Cemetery
Hmmm, not sure. When I look at them, they're sideways! I can send a screenshot if you private message me.

RE: Hopewell Cemetery
Allen Jennings, Eleanor Jennings, Cerelda, Levi, and Lucinda Sourwine and Ruth Sourwine. Did you not find Oliver and Sara (his wife) Vorhis either? I did not enter cemetery as I am not nimble anymore and could not see them from the perimeter. :-)

RE: Winnaford Hulet Morris
I live in TX but have family in NE and MO so I get to that area on a fairly regular basis. I'd love to help with the cemetery. My dad may also be willing to help. If you can dig up any pictures I'd appreciate it. I couldn't find a marker for Mary Clark Morris the 2nd sister who married my gg grandfather. I know she also passed before him and I think he married a Jane "Boes" after Mary died but I can't find info on any of them. I don't think Mary had children and my GG Grandfather James Morris was living in MO at the time George would have passed. George is on the 1910 census for Indiana so a MO burial is unlikely, although I am still searching that area as well. Any thing you have for the Clark / Morris family would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and Happy Holidays :)

RE: Winnaford Hulet Morris
YES! and I'm stuck. My GG Grandfather was George Morris and GG Winnaford. George later her sister Mary.
I can't find parents, siblings or a burial for George All of the Census reports say he was from Ohio but it doesn't track. I was hoping someone might be able to help.

I looked thru the pic's again and none of them are of whom you requested .. But there were several stones among this one .. Does Purdy ring any bells in the family? I'll get some bug spray and take another look quick .. I have a email account if you want to drop me a quick email I"ll respond with all the pics I do have and maybe you can find another line in the tree with these

RE: Samuel Davidson Dailey
I'm sorry .. I took several shots of the headstone .. Let me go thru and look at what i have and see if it matches .. remove that pic and I will revisit if I do not have the correct photo on my camera .. Sorry about that again .. I actually let my husband take that photo without me double checking. Not his thing he was humoring me that day!

Samuel Parrett
Hi my name is Charlie Gentis, I am a Riverside Calif. SAR Registrar and working on a membership off of Samuel Parrett SR. I don't know if you can help me but I really need the headstones for Samuel Parrett S's. and Eleanor (Ellen) Daily's cleaned off and possible photographed so I can submit the transcription off the headstones. SAR will not take any information off the Find A Grave face pages. SAR has Samuel in the archives with two different dates for his birth and death. You may not be able to read any of it but I would like to try. Samuel's will is dated 1835 and some where along the line both DAR and SAR locked on that date as his death. I doing this for a 83 year old who would really like to join the SAR. I have had to spend my own money for documents so I am trying to keep my cost down. I am hoping you may already have pics of the headstones, which are readable, maybe plot #s and or a copy of Samuel's original will. If I have the plot # and they are close to each other that would help me connect the dots. I would also need the plot # for Eve Custard. My e-mail is:, cell 951 532 2005. I am very sorry to bother you with this. I would really like to be able to correct both the DAR & SAR records.

Hi Steve,
I have updated Alice's memorial to include links to her parents and a little more information. I am not related to Alice. I found information on her while doing my own family research in Seattle and Lake View Cemetery. According to Alice's death information, her mother's name was Lydia, which according to your information on the family, must have been Caroline's middle name. Just thought you might want to know.

Benjamin and Alice Whitacre portrait

Thanks so much for posting this portrait. They are my wife's great great great grandparents. She was very excited.

Do you happen to know if one exists for her great great grandmother? She was Rachel Whitacre (1852-1923) who married Andrus Harrington.

Her great grandparents were Florence Herrington (1876-1965) who married Walla Wakefield.

Re: Smith Voorhis
I am related through Dora Alice Smith who married James Albert Voorhis. Dora was the sister of my great-grandfather, John O. Smith. Do you have a picture of Ruth Mary Voorhis' accident? My great-aunt always said she saw one. I have 2 small obituaries for Albert. Are you researching the Smith family genealogy?
