Bio and Links
Bio Photo Back about 1983, my father ask me to see if I could find out where his grandfather Amos Crane had been buried as he had died of sickness during the Civil War, and was reported as being buried
near Sand, or Sandy Ridge, Alabama.

His Memorial is at Find A Grave Memorial# 28991588
Amos Crane

I have found many wonderful stories about my ancestors along the way.
Among the surnames I am researching are: Hamlin, Poage, Terrill/Terrell, Litton, Stokesberry, Crane, Hawk, Huss, Blann, Minnick, McAuley, Smith, Golden, Wyckoff,Galaspie/Galaspy,
Gillispie, Glick, Ogle, Offield, Offill, Garland, Delaney.

"You live as long as you are loved and remembered, our finger prints don't fade from the lives we touch
Small plaque shown by a cemstone says:
"Our family chain is broken & nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again."

I am helping a Hamlin descendant join DAR. Is there a headstone for Rosannah? Do you know when she and John were married? Would appreciate any help you can offer. My email is Thanks! Kathy

Isaac and Nancy Hamlin
Hi Nancy, thank you so very much for all the information about Isaac and Nancy Hamlin on the Find A Grave site. They are my great-grandparents. I am aware that Isaac (Jr) was killed in a home raising accident, but I have never been able to find out just when. I wonder how you came to the conclusion it was when he was about 17? I have tried to find a record (newspaper etc.) but have been unsuccessful. Since the family chose to pick up and move across the state to Butler Co. PA about 1849 I always thought Isaac Jr's death may have precipitated the move?? (I guess we'll never know) nor will we know why they decided later to move to Ohio. Thanks so much for your help - much appreciated.

Hello Nancy

I deleted the old pic's and posted the new ones on both sites.

If I can do anything else for you, don't hesitate to ask.


P.S. Throughout the wait for this addition, every now and then, someone puts fresh flowers in the bronze vase. Someone cares.

RE: McAninch Plaques

I'll try and see if I can fix it tomorrow. I did not spend much to.e trying. I will let you know if I'm successful.


P.S. I never asked you, but are they related to you?

Hello Nancy

They finally finished Sandra's Plate. How do you want to do this. I tried to delete the pictures I originally posted, but can't. I also have the plates with both Steven and Sandra together, so if you want it posted , I can do that on Steven's site also. Let me know what you want.

RE: Kesiah Ogle Blann
If only the resources and documentation were trustworthy. There is no single resource, not headstones, not census reports, cemetery records, SSDI or even family recollections that are 100% reliable without corroboration from somewhere else.

In my virtual cemeteries there is one called "Oops" that is full of headstone errors. Just because something is "written in stone" does not make it true and accurate.

I guess this is how we learn, Nancy. I keep going back to my earlier efforts to make corrections. It took me forever to remove all the unnecessary punctuation marks from their names. Ha.

RE: Sandra McAninch
Hello Nancy . Just wanted to check in with you about Sandra. I was at the cemetery today and stopped by her crypt. The death plate was still not attached. I emailed my contact at the cemetery, who told me her plate has been ordered but might take a few weeks to get and attach. I will continue checking whole doing photo requests.

RE: Garland-Offield families
Well you are just a good hoot n hollar west on I-70.
Been through K.C. more than I have been there. Anybody who lives near K.C. knows the difference between K.C., Ka. and K.C. Mo. Got a good story about K.C., Ka. but not for public display. LOL
