Bio and Links

Many of the memorials I have contributed are those of either my direct ancestors or extended relatives.

If you are related to any of them (and maybe to me,) please send me a message.

I have also created memorials that are of no known connection to me. If any of these are an ancestor or of particular interest to you, please send me a transfer request through the "edit" option and I will likely transfer them to you.

Frederick Lemon Bird
Bill, I added a picture to Mom's Uncle Babe's memorial. It is him with his wife Hannah and my grandmother Lela Bird. She was married to his brother, Edward. I notice your write up does not include Hannah as his wife. Her maiden name was Hannah Hollopeter. She is the only spouse I have in my records. I have some other pictures of Ira Bird and other family members I can send to you if you want them.

Quaker dates
Here's a link to information about the Quaker Calendar.

The North Carolina Monthly Meetings gave the months as numbers instead of using names. Until 1752, Britain and America were using the Julian calendar which had the new year starting in March. William Wade Hinshaw transcribed the dates as they were recorded in the original records.

For example, Cane Creek Monthly Meeting recorded the date of birth for Ruth (Lindley) Hadley (#18958774) as 3-25-1745. In 1745 the third month was May. Unfortunately, Find A Grave doesn't have a way to record her birth as 3-25-1745.

William A James
I think I have a picture of William A James. Received it from my Grandmother Virgina Sheward (maiden name) who received it from her mother Mary Bird (maiden name)

James and Honour Browne

Since their burial places are unknown, what are your sources for the dates of their births and deaths?

Fred Bird
Bill, your memorial for Frederick Lemon Bird asked for a contact from relatives. As you already know, he was the brother of my grandfather, Edward H Bird. Mom always referred to him as Uncle Babe. I have a picture of him in his WW 1 military uniform. My records say he was married to Hannah Hollopeter as his first wife and they had one son.

Thanks for the heads-up on the duplication. Mine has been deleted. Why don't you add the plaque photos directly onto his memorial? Much more effective. Regards.

Emma Snyder memorial
I asked you to connect Emma Snyder

to her husband Lewis. I have her Army Widow card as proof but not your email. You can see a slightly different version here:

John Newlin
Concord was part of Chester County until 1789 so the death records are in Chester Co. John made a will which was proved 10 Feb 1753 in Chester Co., so he must have died by then, not Oct 1753. It is customary to write the original county for the citations. If you use Delaware Co., then you might state that it was Chester Co. at the time of death to make it easier for others to find the records. Estate papers are also on Ancestry, naming wife, Mary. Mary's father, Richard Woodward and John's father, Nathaniel Newlin were officials in the Orphans Court in Chester Co.

Thank you for your work on Find-a-Grave!
