|Bio and Links|
I've been working on my family tree for a few years now. My family tree includes the surnames Corbett (Corbet, FitzCorbet), Leichliter, Barcus (Barchus), Rhoades, Taliaferro, Tolliver (Toliver), McHaffie, Spittler and Secrest to name a few. Most of my family came from Pennsylvania and Virginia.|
So far during my research I found on my mother's side of the family we are related to President George Washington, President James Madison, General Robert E Lee, and Thomas Green Clemson - the driving force and namesake of Clemson University. All of these relationships are by marriage but of course those count as well.
**FYI** I gladly will correct any information that I have if it is listed incorrectly. I try and research maiden names and middle names if I can but the information on the web is not always accurate. I also try to connect as many family members as I can, it just makes it easier for the next person's
research. A simple please and/or thank you with your request is enough. Thank you!
**You may use any of the photos I have taken for your own personal use, just please cite the source.

The date of birth in the Ottumwa Cemetery book is wrong. Her stone gives a different birth year. Can you please correct this one? Thanks~~

|LSJRJT||RE: Edward William Murray - Memorial# 98264514|
Unfortunately, it isn't my relative if the obit is correct. My Edward Murray married Nancy Ann Jones in 1886 and had three children.
I don't know much about my Edward. His parents were born in Ireland and they were Michael Murray and Mary O'Donnell. He was either born in Ireland or Ohio, I think. His is a name that is hard to track down. I can't even find the three kids: Mary Tressie, Willis Fenton and Fieldon Edward.
I just keep hunting!! After all.... isn't that what we love? Hunting and then finding!!!!
Thank you for your efforts.

Sara... Thank you sooooo much for getting a picture of Edward's headstone. Do you know if Ottumwa Cemetery has any records on him? That tell anything about his death or his relatives? From the things that I have documented, there are a few discrepancies and I am wondering if this is "my" Edward William Murray.
I haven't dug into it yet.... but I will. I wonder if there is an obituary for him in the Ottumwa area. hmmmmmm
Thanks again for the picture and all that you do on Find-A-Grave. I certainly appreciate it!!!! Great picture!

I don't know enough about find a grave to take over and don't know your side of family. It was good to hear from you. I will try to add my father's family for you.

Sara, thank you for transferring Elijah and Lottie's memorials to me, I appreciate it more than mere words can convey. Best regards, Taddy

|Sandra Vallance||Milburn Family|
It was great to find some of my family - you have really helped me in my search. My father was: Chester Ray Milburn son of George Freeman Milburn (1882 - 1939)and Myrtle Estella Gillaspie (1885 - 1967). I have been working on his family tree for years now also doing my mother's: Dorothy Louise Walker (1923 still kicking at age 91).
Thank you for all your help. Sandy

Please remove your photo of an unmarked grave on my memorial for Bertha Atkins, #96376068. If the grave is unmarked I will put a notation in the bio but adding that picture is against the guidelines.
My grandmother is Evelyn Leichliter from Ogden, Boone, Iowa. Her father is Vernon Garfield Leichliter and her mother is Frances Dorothy Dahlberg.
May I ask how are you related to the Leichliters? It's always nice to find someone in the family!
