WE ARE THE CHOSEN by Della M. Cumming ca 1943.-"In each family we are called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. ...... So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation, to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers. That is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on the bone."

RE: Wethersfield Village Cemetery Wethersfield CT
I have way too much time on my hands!! I found in the Tillotson survey results from 1899...that the memorial page that I had of Esther with no last name was Esther Griswold died 11 July 1813 wife of John Griswold.
Now I can sleep better at night!!

Charlie Cleveland Trantham
I am not related to the Trantham's I created the memorial from the grave marker. I have linked Charlie to his parents now. The Oregon Co. inscription book lists Charlie Sr. as being buried in an unmarked grave in Thayer Cemetery, but there is no listing for Sarah under the name Trantham or Harmon being buried in Oregon Co.; I don't know if that helps or not.

Trantham Message
It would be easier for you to email me directly,
Elijah T Wesley Trantham was a son of Zachariah and I do have info on their children. My line is Zachariah's sister Nancy Trantham Turpin. I don't have photos from the line you inquired about, but have written off to counties and gotten various documents.

Ragan Trantham
Early on in my research I mistakenly added a tree that listed Matilda Evans as a Trantham. The reason I had no other source so I took that one without researching it myself. It was Amy Patterson who corrected me. I put that tree in the LDS site and have yet to correct it. So if you see Matilda Trantham, it is wrong. I did that over four years ago before I found the correct surname.

I have some photos of the Trantham's buried in the Spring City cemetery. I also know a Trantham researcher by the name of Amy Patterson. She was a big help to me. Will look for her email addy and send it to you. If you want the photos I have of the Tranthams I will send them to you. My email is Just put something in the heading so I know it is you. I think I have a Woolridge. Yes Thomas Benton Ragan married to Nancy Eliza Trantham is the son of Matilda. Thayer cemetery has a lot of people buried there from these lines. They are on findagrave.

Matilda Evans
I am a Matilda Evans, William Ragaan descendant. I have researched her extensively. Since 2006. Much of what is posted has come from my research. I have written stories about her and placed in libraries in Missouri and Arkansas. I have gone to Mammoth Springs and Thayer Missouri twice to research Matilda and all of her family. Before I started researching there was nothing posted on Ancestry and what was posted on Rootsweb was wrong. Mater a fact we are going to be celebrating "Granny Blue" day on November 8, 2014 at the Riverside cemetery near Mammoth Springs, Arkansas. I live in California. A new stone will be placed next to her old stone. If you are a descendant or just interested in this event you can follow us on Facebook. Just google Granny Blue Facebook and you will be updated on all that I have found and am doing to honor her. She had five children that had children. The others died before they were of age. According to the 1900 census she had a total of 10 children born and in 1900 only three were living. A proclamation from the town of Thayer has been made for Matilda Evans, Ozark Pioneer Woman. I am glad you contacted me as I am hoping other descendants will come forward. If you can possibly make this event would love to meet you. Thank you again for your interest in a special woman.

RE: Esther Smith
I've posted the photos on Roger's and Esther's pages. If you go to and click on burying ground digitization and then interactive map you will see a Google map. Scroll down and click on first name. Enter Esther and about 20 names will appear. There is even an Esther Williams!

RE: Bennett O Moen
Uncle Bennet was the live wire in our family. He always told the best jokes, and always had a good word. He worked for Cargill, and was in charge of their sunflower production. They gave him a station wagon with a telephone in it in the late 1960's so he could report from the fields. The picture I posted is his wedding picture. I was told that he was buried in that suit.

I really want to thank you for all you've done to keep track of our burial sites in our family. This heritage will outlast us all and will help our descendants a great deal when they want to research family.

At the end of July we will be driving to Idaho Falls, Idaho. Our nephew, Joe Boyd, is getting married, so it is a great time for family to get together.

One of the best parts of Find-A-Grave is that I've been able to meet you folks.

God bless you with His best and nicest blessings.
