|Bio and Links|
I am a retired accountant living in northern Illinois and enjoying my retirement by reading lots of mysteries and researching family lines. My late husband had been researching his mother's family for years and when we married in 2005, he got me fascinated in genealogy. Before he became too ill, we used to travel to do our research and check out cemeteries. Now I do all my research online and think Find a Grave website and all the volunteers posting to it are providing a great research tool.|

I posted the picture on her memorial. It's in pretty bad shape. I don't know if anyone's been back there to try and clean it up. E-mail directly any time if you feel like talking family. :-)

You sent me an edit to add her father as PLEASANT ATCHLEY # 6128431. Could you please send me your sources for this information. I cannot locate anything that proves this relationship.
|Lloyd Boner||Cemetery Picture|
It did not have a sign for it. I saw Dick Grice about a week ago and told him the cemetery was really grown up with little saplings. He said he needed to clean it up. I will wait for him to do that, if not I will take a photo of it just as it is.
|Sandra Lennox||RE: Mary (Finney) Clark|
Hello you sent me an edit:
got the info from this book: A Brief History of Ebenezer Phinney (of Cape Cod) and His Descendants from 1673 to 1947 - by his great granddaughter Mary Allen Phinney; Tuttle Publishing Co. 1948. This can viewed online at the Open Library website. Page 19 has the info I cited.
This also gave a 1700 birth date for Mary (Phinney/Finney) Clark. Let me know what you decided about amending the memorial.
I do not agree with this information.
The information on Mary's gravestone:
Died 1765 aged 73 yrs. This would put
her birth about 1692 not 1700.

Unfortunately, the burial year does not match the death year in all cases. Many of the burials at Mt Olivet were re-interrments either within the cemetery or from other cemeteries. In 2000+ cases I cannot reliably state that the burial date accurately lists the year of death.
Appreciate the suggestion, but I'd rather not lead a researcher astray.
I was able to locate a death notice for John Berry and clearly establish a date of death. That's one down...a few more to go.

Question, how do you know that the Child's father's first name is Roderick. On the Barker it has V. B. Taunton? Please let me know, then I will be glad to change the name to Roderick VanBeren Taunton.
Just want to make sure that things are right.
|Sandra Lennox||Mary (Finney) Clark|
You had sent me an edit for my memorial of
Mary (Finney) Clark suggesting that I add:
daughter of Joseph Phinney and Mercy Bryant
Phinney, and that she is mother of: Sarah,
Lucy, Hannah, Luraina, and Samuel Jr.
I did not find any information in the
Vital Records of Plymouth to support the
information that you want me to add.
Please send me the source of your information,
along with a link. I appreciate your suggestion
but I take my memorials seriously and will not
add information without documentation.
|Madeline Welch||RE: Hettie Gipson 55039144|
Both Hettie & William Price are listed as buried in Smith-Waddle Cemetery, but I never found their headstones. It's possible I missed them in the 2 short visits I had there. Maybe a volunteer who lives in that area will find them & post photos soon.
The obit was one of many saved by my gr.aunt who lived her life in that area. It says she was buried at Halls Chapel, but the cemetery transcripts show them at Smith-Waddle. I guess we won't know for sure until we can see the headstones. Wish I could be down there scouting for them, but that's not possible.
