Bio and Links
Bio Photo I honor these ancestors with a small memorial.

I will share any information you may be interested in having or add more that you want to add. You may use all photos and histories and information --
I'm grateful to the vast number of people who volunteer their time to get my pictures!! Thank you.

PLEASE note: I cannot "add" children or siblings. You have to make the "link" as a request on that persons memorial as an Edit -- and use the Find A Grave Memorial# when you make the request. If there is not an existing memorial for the sibling or child, you can create a new memorial and make the "links" yourself. It's not as simple as just typing in the name, it is actually linked to a memorial of the person and requires time, research and sourcing of where the person is buried.

PLEASE make ALL corrections, added history or additional information, links to parents or spouse, and transfer requests via the "edit tab" on the memorial.

I follow findagrave guidelines for transfer requests: Editing & Correcting Memorial Information: Click on: "How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?"

Eric Cole
Pam Thompson
Hello, in a message that you sent to HESM regarding Clarissa Cole/Lydia Paine you referenced information provided by Pam Thompson. I believe that she is updating a book on the descendants of James Cole, and I would like to contact her and exchange information. I am a James Cole descendant via James>Hugh>John>John>Isaac>Burden>Nathaniel.Horatio>Erastus>Waldo etc and would like to provide information for her book. Would it be possible to provide her contact information or at least provide her my find a grave contact information should she wish to contact me?

Any help that you could provide would be appreciated.

Thank you for adding this photo. I am her descendent through her daughter, Leah McNeil Lee. I was wondering the source of the photo. Also, where you got the photo for her husband, Danial McNeil? I can also be contacted at

Patrick Barry Upper Canada Land Petition
I can't thank you enough for posting the link to this land petition on Eleanor Barry Sanford's page. Family legend said we had Tories in our lineage. This is the first time I've seen actual proof. Thank you for this important genealogical find.

Patrick Barry Sr.
For anyone researching the Patrick Barry and Deborah Smith family, on the Library and Archives Canada site on-line there is a land petition for Patrick Barry Sr. (the date on the petition looks like it's 1811) and attached to it is the petition by his son Thomas (petition date 1819). The petition can be downloaded. The petition tells Patrick's life story and tracks his movements after his arrival in America. It's quite an amazing story.

Relative of Elizabeth brother Miles Conrad
Miles Conrad brother of Elizabeth Conrad Hooks married and had a daughter Sarah Conrad who married Dickens. They had a daughter who married Mooney, and they had a daughter, my mother. I think it makes him my mother's great grandfather.
I was hoping to get photographs of miles and his family and wondered what you could share with me regarding the family.
This site was most informative - did the stories came from journals?
I can be reached at

Boyce family
We have in our family records a Mary Ruth Sutton whom married a Benny Boyce and had 3 children, Benny Lee Boyce, Frankie D. Boyce and John W. Boyce....Mary Ruth was daughter of John Sutton and Estella (DeLozier) Sutton...I can find nothing in my searches for any/all...Noting you had a lot of information on the Boyce Family, thought I would give it a shot...In addition, my father had a good friend named Alan Sutton that is buried in Limon, Colorado...We used to visit when I was a kid, now I wonder if Alan was a relative thru these links...Great job on your memorials...Thanks..

William Graves
I have built our family tree back to Henrietta and mother Harriet, but cannot seem to find any records on this William her father? Most other trees have Fredrick as her father? Do you have any other info on William? I noticed that when Henrietta signed her husbands death certificate she spelled her maiden name as Greaves?

Julia Townsend Hedge
I question the relationship of Julia to Gilbert and Armenia Gleason Townsend. I have a list of names with birthdates for Gilbert and Armenia and their children written by their daughter-in-law Adelia Schenck Townsend (wife of Absolem). Julia is NOT on this list. In checking census, I find Julia with Edwin M. Townsend and his wife Hester, and in turn they are living nearly next door to Chester Townsend and Delight (Wilbur) Townsend on the 1850 census of Livington county, Michigan. I do not believe that Gilbert and Armenia ever lived in Livingston county. When they came from NY they settled in New Hudson township of Oakland county, MI. I realize that there is a Julia Pebbles listed with Mr. Pebbles and that Armenia and her son Sylvester were enumerated under the Pebbles name in 1860, but Armenia is buried with her husband Gilbert as a Townsend. Julia Pebbles must belong to Mr. Pebbles and NOT to Armenia Gleason Townsend.
