Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching my ancestors and their descendants:

Paternal: Kirby, Christoffersen, Follett, Niles, Morrill, Stokes, Hansen, Gibson, Woolf, Irons, Jorgensen.
Maternal: Hamilton, Hester, Jones, Owens, Chandler, Copeland, Bartlett, Orr, Mitchell and Judd (among others).

I've also created many memorials for unrelated people and total strangers including many from local cemeteries in New Mexico and other places. If you want a transfer for any of these, let me know. Not really in it for the numbers or personal credit but more of a public service. Its not about me but them.

My fathers side of the family are largely pioneers who joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mom's side were Baptists and Methodists and a few colorful characters from the southern United States.

I hope the legacy of my memorials will enable others to find and know their ancestors, to preserve our history and to honor those who have gone before us and made us who we are.

Thanks to the many photo volunteers, folks who have added details and links and others who have collaborated in this effort.

If you have corrections, additional information, pictures or would like to add links, let me know and your or I can add them to the memorials I have created.

You are free to use any photo or other data I have added for person use or for family history or for use on ancestry.com or other family history web sites.

I've tried to connect as may of my relatives as I can find in findagrave.

In addition to findagrave ancestry.com also has my ancestors and their descendants. I have around 10,600+ people in this tree (and growing).

Thanks and happy hunting.

Jay

P.S. When I started using findagrave there were less than 20 million names. Pretty amazing site.

I recently took ancestry.com DNA test and I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs a boost in identifying ancestors and their descendants

RE: Jonathan Follett
Thank you so much for you memorials and photos of my ancestors' graves and all the others, too. I am digitally ignorant! I should have changed the font on the military record. I cannot even begin to do the work involved for a memorial. Even an unknown burial is helpful when I have documentation of either my ancestor's location, baptism or death. Perhaps, someday, I can hire someone or perhaps go to Clifford and Herrick Townships, Susquehanna Co., PA to find the graves of Mary (Follett) Carpenter and her husband Ezra. I have a copy of No. 82470 Mayflower lineage that documents Mary Follett's marriage and her parents. My ancestor is the sister of the Mayflower descendant. With all the snow back East, it maybe Halloween before I hear if the Mayflower Society accepts the baptismal record of Eliza and Tryphena as children of Ezra Carpenter. Thanks again, Mrs. Oneill

RE: Follett family
OK, if you change your mind let me know. Yes the whole reason I got involved adding people to the Lone Mountain site was because other's had taken pictures of my families graves. And I decided if I wanted information like that, then maybe I can do the same for other people looking for family members. Besides, I'm retired, I have plenty of time, I'm sort of taking a break from working on my family tree, and I really enjoy going to the cemetery and taking the pictures. Happy hunting back to you!

Follett family
Hi Jay,

Would you like me to transfer the Follett family from Lone Mountain to you? I'm not related, I'm just adding names from our cemetery records. If so, please give me your number and the numbers of the memorials you would like transferred to you.

Thanks,

Melinda

Santo Niņo Cemetery (Las Gallinas)
Hi Jay-
There's some confusion on this site regarding cemeteries with this name...You started it correctly, but I cannot find it when I hit cemetery lookup. My inlaws are buried there, and I have thier burials on here, but come to find out it's in a Rociada cemetery with the same name...there's at least 5 people listed in the wrong Santo Nino cemetery. But your listing doesn't come up...how can I fix this? Thanks-Michaela

Jay,
Thanks for making a memorial for Jody. You beat me to it! Her obituary is currently online at:
http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/hjnews/obituary.aspx?pid=173853878

You might consider adding the bio portion of the article. It seemed to capture Jody's spirit and achievements.

RE: Ena Agnes Richins Mitchell
Hi Jay,
Thanks for the quick response. It looks like you have the correct middle name. Cemetery records are only as good as the information provided by the funeral home or the transcriber.

William D Follett #82760889
Hi, I have processed the relationship updates for William, Marie and Burley Follett. I was doing some additional searching and found an obit in the Chicago Tribune for William. May 10 1942. If you submit a correction email for Burley with your email address I can send you a copy. I am not sure if this is your family or just the same last name as yours. bhd

RE: Lorn Follett relationship links
Jay--

I wish I could see that edit--the only change I made in our records was correcting his name from Loren Leonard to Lorn Lamont Follett. That is as it should be, right? 1880-1954, married to Edna Caroline Carter?

What did the edit ask for? We are tracking the Carters, not the Follett's, and I don't recall taking him from his parents. In fact, though, I do want to thank you for correcting the spelling of his name for us. His father, William's, middle name is Lamonti, correct? Maybe the question was the changing of the spelling of Lamonti to Lamont, to Leamond down through 3 generations? Please accept my apology for any unintentional misunderstanding, and thanks for contacting me.

Sincerely,
JBradford
