Bio Photo Hi all,

Family history and genealogy are two of my passions. I'm hoping to connect with the descendents of my ancestors and relatives.

Any photo that I've posted at Find-A-Grave may be used for any non-commercial purpose (family trees, personal use, etc.). Please don't forget to give me credit if you re-post my photos or research data elsewhere on the internet.

I'm disabled and don't travel easily, so any help will be greatly appreciated!


Best Wishes,
Kati McSweeney

Thanks for edit for above person in Gypsum Hill cemetery, Salina, Ks. What documentation do you have that her maiden name was Roland?

Reading Grove
Hi Kati, Stephen Grove is my 2nd great grandfather. The memorial that you have for Reading Grove includes a photograph cropped from a larger photograph of the whole family that I found on The details for Reading indicate that he lived only 3 months. All of the boys who were born to Stephen and Mary appear to be in the photograph and none of them are infants. Something isn't right. Did they have another boy that I am not finding on Did Reading actually live much longer than the dates would indicate? Have you any idea? My great grandfather, by the way, is Marshall Nay Grove. Thank you. -Ellen

Jonathan Lambert # 83554103
Are you perhaps related to this Jonathan (New Lisbon Cemetery, New Lisbon, Randolph, OH)? I have recently found that he and his 1st wife are my 4th great grandparents. Jonathan married a 3rd time to Mrs. Bridget Lahey / Leahy on 24 Apr 1865 in Darke Co., OH. She is mentioned in Jonathan's will. She lived until 1910 and had 2 children, Michael and Peter Leahy.
This connection was made through DNA testing, my mother was born in 1922 and placed for adoption within hours of her birth. I have known who her birth mother was for 45 years, but thanks to DNA I now know my birth grandfather and have been welcomed by his 3 daughters and son into the family. I have been truly blessed in finding this after all these years.

Stephen Grosvenor Hopkins
Hi Kati: Thank you for posting Stephen's obituary. As for the place of birth and death which conflicts with the obituary. I have ordered a copy of his death certificate from New York City Dept. of Records, takes several weeks to receive. Will advise you of my findings. All the best. Bill Preston.

RE: Mary Hopkins' obituary-THANKS!
Hi Kati: Your very welcome, thank you for posting Mary's obituary. I also sent a copy her husband Stephen's obit. In researching him I find even his civil war records indicated he was born in Buffalo. Mary would be a cousin of my wife on the Comstock line (her middle name). Bill Preston in Saratoga, NY

Stephen Grosvenor Hopkins
Hello Kati: I just found the obituary for Stephen. Note: He was born Buffalo NY and died in Brooklyn, NY, thus his memorial needs correcting. Obit is set forth:
26 Jun 1923 Tues. The Auburn Citizen, Auburn, N. Y.
Rev. Stephen Grosvenor Hopkins, 83, died in Brooklyn last evening (25 Jun). The funeral will be held in this city (Auburn) at the home of the nephew of the deceased, Charles H. Steel of 59 South Street. The survivors are four daughters, Mrs. F. C. Blake, Miss Julia Hopkins, Miss Ruth Hopkins, all of Brooklyn and Mrs. Harold Amon of Newark, N. J. One son, Winthrop Hopkins of Chicago, also survives. The deceased was born in Buffalo, July 23, 1840. He graduated from Hamilton College in 1863 and for a time served in the army. He married Miss Mary C. Haight of this city on June 8, 1869. He was ordained as a minister in Cory, Pa., by the Erie Presbytery in October, 1868. He graduated from the Auburn Theological Seminary with the class of 1868. He preached in Cory from 1868 to 1876 and he then went to Columbus, O., where he resided from 1876 to 1879. He supplied in several churches from 1879 to 1881. He was in Deposit, N.Y. from 1881 to 1890 and was in Palmyra from 1890 until 1896. He was a clerk in the customs service, New York for sometime. The deceased is the son of Prof. Samuel Miles Hopkins, who graduated from the Auburn Seminary with the class of 1837. Transcribed by Bill Preston #47695598

RE: Mugford memorial pages
Here I am again with a question. What is the "proper" way to request a transfer of a memorial to myself?

Ancestryseeker is the contributor and his/her message system is disabled, I'm sure due to the volume of records they maintain.

Is there some other way to contact a contributor?

RE: Mugford memorial pages
I was wondering if you were somehow related to "our" MUGFORDs. Thanks for the how-to info and for transferring our MUGFORD folks to our care. Not everyone is as generous as you.

Gordon's story is quite interesting about how he's not really a HAUSKINS. You can probably elaborate on that story but I would have to look it up in my records. My husband is very close to his cousin, Jennifer Skiba, Gordon's granddaughter.

I am glad that you got the graphic before it was deleted - sorry that Find A Grave removed them.
