Bio and Links
Bio Photo A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
In loving memory of my family and friends.

I'm a proud member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. My gggg-grandfathers John Shacklett FAG #45092203, Richard Ashcraft FAG #96952717, Joseph Newton Fox FAG #47960698, Thomas Thomas FAG #56840518, and John Wimp FAG #30181373, served in the Revolutionary War. John Shacklett served as a Private in Captain Nicholas Shinn's Company of Rangers. Richard Ashcraft served as an Indian scout in western Pennsylvania along the Monongahela River serving in Captain Bazil Bowell's Company. Joseph Fox served as a private in the 11th VA Regiment of the Continental Army under Captain David Steel. He spent the winter of 1777-1778 at Valley Forge. For his service he received 336 acres of land in Perry Township, Greene County, Pennsylvania, patent 15, January 15, 1814. He chose a grassy knoll on his property as his final resting place. Thomas Thomas served as a Pvt. Maryland, 3rd Regiment Maryland Line. John Wimp served as a sergeant in Captain James Floyd's Company of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania Militia, commanded by Colonel William Chambers. John Wimp was a Mason and frequently spoke of having met General Washington in the Masonic lodge at Fairfax.

I have to laugh every time I see this quote from members who have THOUSANDS of entries on FAG: "Transfers will be made according to FAG guidelines, direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents." One man who loves to quote this has over 356,000 entries and he states that 99.99% are not related to him. He enters thousands of people who are not related to him, but makes a family member follow the direct relative four generation rule. I just can't see the logic in that.

William Howell Sr.
Is his middle name spelled Claiborne or Clayborn? It is spelled Clayborn on the headstone.

RE: St. Clare Cem Colesburg
I photographed all of Patterson Chapel headstones two years ago. If there is no headstone picture on Find A Grave, then there probably is not a headstone there, or not a readable one.

RE: Colesburg Cemetey
Yes. I seemed to remember reading about it, and surprisingly I remembered the name - St. Clair. I looked in Find A Grave. No St Clair. Bummer.

But I know there was one there. So I did a Google search and, viola! It is ST. CLARE, and it is in Find A Grave. 600+ burials. Hope that helps.

RE: Richard Calvert
All I can tell you about him is that he was born around 1861, married Mary E. Webb Jul 20, 1895, and died somewhere between 1903 & 04. This is the obstacle in my road, because I can't find anything on his parents via internet.

Webb/Calvert - Ferguson Cemetery
I was just curious where you gathered your information about Benjamin Calvert and Mary E Webb, both buried in Ferguson Cemetery in Bullitt County, Kentucky. Benjamin is my great-grandfather, and Mary is my great-great-grandmother. She was married to my great-great-grandfather before Robert Horine. I am trying to find where Richard Calvert is buried, and his lineage before that. Any info would be most welcome.
