William French
Hi Elton
It would appear that we are also connected through William French. I believe that I have also seen you on a couple more of my ancestor's Find a Grave Sites. I served in the Air Force and my husband is a 20+ years US Army Vet who retired as a First Sergeant (E-8). There are many Military persons in my family going way back. I qualify for membership in the DAR through several of my Ancestors on both sides.
Thank you for what you do.

John Briggs of Taunton (92461287)
There seems to be a problem about where John Briggs of Taunton is Buried in two places, the question is which cemetery? He also is recorded as being in the Taunton "Oakland Cemetery" (record 137810613). They both have the same birth year, the death year is closer to the on for 92461287. Any thoughts on why John Briggs of Taunton would be transported to Marion?

Saw your information here and wanted to say hello. John Bigge was my 11th Great grandfather also. Always good to meet new cousins. Thank you for your service. I was raised in Olympia, Tenino and Portland then left to join the Air Force. Hope you are enjoying the warm weather. Terry Wulff

RE: WIlliam Hare/Hair
Elton, Tried sending you an e-mail but had internet trouble. Wondering where you fit into the Hair family. Perhaps we could exchange notes.
My husband retired from the Army in '85, after 36 years. Thank you for your service. Dorothy

Elton, Thanks for your prompt reply. I have extensive info on William and Savilla Wheeler Hair. The photo posted on the web is probably from our family records as I sent it to a number of people searching the family and I found out later that several people posted it. The photo came out of the estate of Lewis Hair who is the grandson of William. I also have the list of all of their children. I have not found any records that verify his parents are either James or William although I found a photo with the names written on the back - William and ________ (not readable) Hair - parents of William and James.
Where are you connected in this family? Perhaps we can solve this together. Dorothy

WIlliam Hare/Hair
I noticed you left a msg for William Hair as a relative. My husband is a direct decendant of William. Do you have any verified information about his family - we are trying to locate the parents of William. Some researchers say it is William and others say James. I haven't had any luck verifying that yet. Do you have any info on this family that you can share? Thanks. Dorothy
