RE: Gifford Place Jewish Cemetery

What you propose is exactly what I did for Gifford Place (i.e., create a listing where there was not yet one and add memorials for my family). I went a bit overboard and added every listing I was aware of. Best of luck to you. Please let me know if can be of any assistance.

RE: Gifford Place Jewish Cemetery
Hello Jim,

The old Jewish Cemetery on Plymouth Hoe is separate from Gifford Place Cemetery. I didn't see the former cemetery within the Find A Grave listings, but tombstone inscriptions may be found at

I'm not in England, although I would enjoy a holiday there some day. I live in the United States.

All the best,

RE: Kathryn Helen Brandt & Albert Stafford
Hi Jim: Yes I found the information about death their deaths on the site you provided and truly appreciate your doing so. She is a very distant cousin on my mother's side. They did have a daughter Shirley, but I have no information Her. In the 1930 census she was listed being 10/12 months old. That's all the information I have on the family. Once again I do appreciate your providing me with the Missouri site....Don

You are most welcome. Have a wonderful holiday.

Susan Brittain
I would be glad to add Robert M. REDUS to her bio if I had anything leading me to believe he was indeed her first husband. True her marriage to WATKINS was later in life than usually a first marriage is. However I can find nothing to link Redus and Brittain. EXCEPT for some family trees on Ancestry and even these have the birth date incorrect for Susan. Can you please give me some information that can let me see a connection?
thank you

Your memorial for Cynthis is a dupe. Can you fix? Thanks..... I would have gone through the edit suggestion tab, but there was a "robot checker" which blocked it????????

Why do you have them and why do you have a robot checker on any message I send thru Find A Grave for updates of links?

Kathryn Helen Brandt & Albert Stafford
Mr. Stafford: My name is Don Herbert, grandson of Lena Kuschmann Peterson. I am doing genealogy work on the Kuschmanns and related families. I would greatly appreciate any information that you might be willing to share on Kathryn & Albert. I do have preliminary Ancestry info and copies of a newspaper article about their accident appearing in the Sedalia, MO Democrat dated 22 September, 1964, which I would be glad to share, if you don't already have it. I am specifically looking for dates of birth and also information on their children.

I thank you for your time and any information you might be able to provide.

James -

Andthank you so much for responding this quickly.

I really appreciate that you are keeping the records for the Stafford family.

I'm learning more and more about the Staffords.

Very interesting history.

RE: Ralph Monroe Stafford
Here is how I fit in:

RM Stafford married Cynthia Ann Burgess
Their daughter was Nancy Missouri Stafford
NM Stafford married James W. Harris
Their daughter was Cynthia Anna Harris.
CA Harris married Lewis Urbin Bruner
Their daughter was Anna Laura "Bonnie" Bruner
Bonnie Bruner married Herbert Efton Womack
Their daughter is Juanita Ruth Womack.
JR Womack married Billy Hayden Reasoner
Their son is me, Glenn David Reasoner

I'm particularly interest in primary source records for the marriage between John Stafford and Nancy Munsey/Muncy/Munsy from Giles, VA.

Did she die giving birth to Ralph Monroe Stafford?
It seems John Stafford re-married after Nancy Munsey.

Nancy Munsey's father was Holton Munsey who fought in the Rev War as well.

This Munsey line goes directly back through the Connecticut and to Roger Ludlow, one of founders of Connecticut and back to Royal Lineage. It is the Nancy Munsey link is the weak one, though I see there are hints to marriage records in VA for RM Stafford and Nancy Munsey.

I need to be able to cite to vital records or books and not to internet websites or dubious records from

The link back to Ralph Stafford would be nice to do a supplemental application to the Sons of the American Revolution as well.

Ralph Monroe Stafford
I'm a descendant of R M Stafford.

You have a place of birth for Ralph Monroe Stafford as Giles, VA.

Is that documented and where would be cited from?

Also, since Nancy Muncy or Munsey was his mother, do you have any records or where it is cited about their marriage and where Nancy's parents were?

I really appreciate any information.

RE: Cardwells
Thanks for submitting the edit. I have James' death certificate, which includes the name of his spouse. I also have an obit or some such report with the first names of his children -- but all of those documents are packed up for our move to another house. Once we're settled, I'll be able to share that info. His spouse moved away with the children soon after James died in a fall from a girder during construction of a high-rise building. James would be my first cousin twice removed. The main reason I was searching for his children and grandchildren is that they had known with my gg grandmother Eleanor (Ellen) Alice Fitzsimmons Cardwell, and I had hoped to gather info, stories, and especially photos of her. (All of the other Cardwell relatives stayed in Kentucky and lost tract of the branch that moved to St. Louis.) Thanks for your offer of assistance. I think, though, that we're pretty much at a brick wall unless we can locate Ellen's great-grandchildren.
Best wishes for a great week!

RE: Cardwells
Thanks, James. I have visited that grave site and was surprised to find a single stone with the names of Ellen and two of her daughters. My research makes me think that this family struggled financially their entire lives, so I think there may have been NO stone until Catherine died and someone purchased a stone for all three. About the stone next to it: James R. DAVIS 1886-1929 was a grandson of Ellen's, the son of her daughter Annabelle. His father may have been James Davis, a native of Scotland. I have not found much more info about Annabelle or James. Because earlier records list James as a Cardwell, I'm not even sure if they were married at the time James and later his sister Mary were born. I have long searched for descendants of James R. Davis, but it appears that after his accidental death in 1929, his wife and children moved away (possibly to New Orleans), and the children were adopted by a second husband. That's all theoretical at this point. If you have additional info about any of these people, I welcome it. My goal is to trace Ellen (nee Eleanor Alice Fitzsimmons) back to her county of birth in Ireland. Ellen was my great-great-grandmother.
