Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy for 36 years and have collected an enormous amount of material that I have made available on my numerous web pages and my rootsweb database.

Some of the names I'm researching are Willard, VonAllmen, Jolliff, Heral/Harrold, Colyott, Huddleston, Baty, Lindesmith, Pease, Johnson, Metcalf, Spurlock, Estes, Casey, Momenteller, Wright (in the US). And my husband's lines: Freeman, Webster, Mapp, Shaw (in Canada & England). I have most of the info I've found on these families at my website.

Just in the last few years I have gotten interested in Find-a-Grave and I love the possibilities it offers. I have been trying to get a lot of the information I have up on these pages, whether they are mine or not. I'm not trying to amass 30,000 memorials--though I genuinely appreciate those who have contributed so much in this way! Most of the time I spend on this site is helping other people make links, add information, and add pictures to their pages.

If you are more closely related to the people I have pages for, or have more information, I'm usually happy to transfer a memorial--UNLESS you are one who doesn't do transfers to other people, or who only transfers within FAG guidelines.

You are welcome to use any of my photos. I don't believe that old pictures "belong" to anyone.

Noted that the above is also your 4th Gr Grandfather.
Also noted the name Lindesmith.
There is a family by that name in Ohio.

Find A Grave
Guess what Find A Grave is doing now. It is taking memorials that we create and transferring them to other without our knowledge or permission. Case in point, a memorial I created for my cousin in 2015 158408570

#15495279 - Minnie Beulah "Jack" Jolliff
Hi Mary Jo,

I love the picture posted on Minnie/Jack's memorial of the 2 women(?)

Do you know which one if Minnie; if so, who is the other one?

This is the second hermaphrodite I have come across, but the other one was in a different family line.

Do you know when Minnie Beulah became Jack? Still listed as female in 1930 census.
Must have taken a long time for her/him to make up his mind.

Hello Mary Jo,

What a find!!

My name is Keith Marriott.

My Maternal Great Grandmother is Fanny Maria, sister of Charles Robinson.

I live in Sheffield South Yorkshire England were Fanny Maria settled with her husband George Lownds Brown and family.

I have been researching for a couple of years, quite a novice compared to yourself.

Hope you don't mind me reading through your research on the Shaws.

Kind regards.

Keith Marriott.
