Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for the past 42 years and what I have on my family history is very extensive. I am researching the names: Davis, Clanton, Woodworth, Brant, Mosbarger, Parker, Willey, Thorla, Humfreville (with variant spellings), Williams, Catron (with variant spellings, such as Kettenring), Hytche, Ingram, Alexander.

I enjoy Find A Grave and have found that the majority of people who are contributors to it are kind, considerate, and very thoughtful, but I have come into contact with some that are not. They have memorials of people who I am related to and they are not, yet they refuse to transfer those memorials to me when I make such a request. This is inconsiderate and unkind. I do not place memorials on Find A Grave of people who I am not related to, but I have transfered some to other's if I find that they are directly descended from that person upon which I do have a memorial.

To the majority of Find A Grave contributors I say, "Continue to be kind and considerate, people appreciate it more than you know."

Jack, I am very appreciative of all the work you are doing. I am working on the Allen line and am unable to connect Samuel Allen (1601-1669) with George Allen (1567-1648) The Allen Family on free pages.genealogy roots disputes this samuel allen as the son of George Allen who arrived in Mass Bay Colony May 6, 1635. He did have a son Samuel but the birth and death dates are off. Please advise.

Hi Jack,
Cleo is my Aunt. I noticed on her page that you have burial unknown. Thought you might like to know she was buried at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens in Littleton, Arapahoe, Colorado. There is another page on her, mem. no. 137669994, are there supposed to be more than one? We have corresponded before, hope you are doing well.

Anne Whitmore Allen # 22898201
You have Anne listed as the daughter of John Whitmore and Joanna Jessup and born in 1612. Yet, the New England marriage records indicate John and Joanna were not married until 1847. Would Anne be the daughter of John's first wife?

Re: Memorial 18244402

Luthera Arvilla Thompson is a sister to my grandmother. Her parents are incorrectly listed on her bio page. Her correct parents are WILLIAM PUSY SPRAGUE THOMPSON and HARRIET ANTIONETTE CHASE.
Thank you very much for making this correction.

Rev. Timothy Allen
Hi, Jack. I just noticed the change in the father of Rev. Timothy Allen to Ebenezer Allen. I'm wondering where that info came from and if any more info is available. I had seen previously that someone stated his parents were not Timothy Allen and Rachel Bushnell, which was certainly disappointing! Rev. Allen, who is my 6th great grandfather, is a colorful character and it would be fantastic to know more about him.

I see that you posted a bible on this memorial five years ago. Are you a family member? If so, I wonder whether you might be willing to share some information about them. I am with the Table Rock Historical Society and have been gathering information about many of our families. There were so many Mortons, and I would love to learn more. I would be happy to share what little I have about them. I do have access to the Table Rock Argus on pdf should you like something looked up. We do not charge for that.

I saw you left a not for Rudy C Schlapmans memorial stating he was the Father of your Best friend.
Would you happen to have any photos of him & or his son ?
I am working on a friends tree, Rudy is his Grand Uncle. It would be a great surprise to find any.
Thank you,

RE: Family lineage
Hello once more. Earlier, when I asked you to make a correction to the memorial of Timothy Allen (#21944597). Thank you for adding a link to his correct father. Could you please revise the text of the biography to also reflect the correct information? As I detailed for you earlier, this Timothy Allen was not the son of Timothy Allen and Rachel Bushnell. I appreciate your assistance in ensuring Find-A-Grave provides only accurate information.
