Bio Photo Hello *you*,

Like many of you, we've suffered great loss:
the loss of our first born son, Timmy, my little sister and mom, and all our grandparents.

Thank you so much for every flower and loving thought. Each one means so much. Every time we read one, we're completely touched by the outpouring of loving kindness.

Also...
If you'd like a memorial transferred, please don't hesitate to ask. It's an honor to transfer to a relative who wishes to take ownership.

Warm embraces,
♥ M'Lady & The Gnome

3. You introduce your children as descendants.
4. My ancestors seem to be hiding in a witness protection program.
5. You can recite your lineage back eight generations but can't remember your nephew's name.
6. I researched my family tree, apparantly I don't exist.
7. What do you mean my birth certificate expired?
8. Remember, undocumented genealogy is mythology.
9. Your idea of a vacation consists of a library, courthouse and a couple of cemeteries.
10. Warning: After thirty days, unclaimed ancestors will be adopted.

My OH-SO-VERY, Deepest Desire!
   I want relatives who were:
♦ Avid corresponders, patriotic and clubby,
♦ Who joined every patrimonial society they could find,
♦ Fought, yet survived every battle and skirmish,
♦ Kept diaries and thoroughly documented trivial events in their family bibles,
♦ Listed all their addresses,
♦ Had paintings made of their houses,
♦ Spent every dime and resource on tintypes and photographs,
♦ Dated every piece of paper they ever touched,
♦ And who repeatedly donated land for family-named cemeteries as they migrated west!

RE: Memorial #52967617
And thank you. I've really enjoyed documenting Old North Church, photographing and marking the GPS of each headstone, and actually uncovering many that had been buried due to time and weather. I, too, have many relatives buried there, including grandparents, great-grandparents and many aunts and uncles. I no longer live nearby, so yes, please, if you see any new headstones, do add that information and picture if you can. I have found the FindaGrave app on my phone very useful for this kind of work.

RE: Memorial #52967617
hmmm. Went back and checked my past edits. I submitted an edit in Feb 2015 because Vera Mae was listed as Vera Mae Smelley. My edit was to change her maiden name to Smelley and her last name to Schindler. Looks like it was approved. I haven't submitted an edit since.

P.S.

After you have read my previous message, would you mind deleting it. I left my email address without realizing it would go to a public message.

RE: Garrett David Buckner
Hi!

Thanks for the reply. It certainly helps to know where he might have been buried, and yes, I am a direct descendant. My mother Billie Sparkman Martin began work on this line in the early 1960s.

My concern is the dates. I hate to see people using dates as real data without supporting documentation. You know how beginning genealogists are about Find-A-Grave. If they find a date on this site, they take it as real documentation (just like those unsupported family lines on Ancestry.com). Then it's really hard for real researchers like you and I who use primary sources to get the dates back out of circulataion. It becomes etched in stone as if it came from a Bible record.

I would love to correspond with you through real email (instead of this site) if you would like.

My direct email address is perkinspm@cox.net. But if you want an immediately reply, you can use peggy.arnot@gmail.com which goes to my phone.

RE: Carpenters
Hi, and thanks for writing. Sorry to hear that you've been ill, and I hope you're feeling better! To answer your question, no, I am not a descendant, rather my husband is a descendant of the Carpenter who married Electa Lakeway (however you spell her name). I suppose the question might be whether his name was David or Davis. On their son Ira's death certificate (posted on his memorial), his name was David; and in the list of Isaac and Mehitable's children, you wrote that he had a son named David. On the memorial you have though, you say Davis. Actually in 1850, just two years before he died, David Carpenter, his wife Electa and daughter Welthy were living in Columbus, Warren Co., PA, not New York. So I guess my other question is--are you sure that David died in Chautauqua Co., NY? But if it's going to be a lot of trouble for you or your husband to answer these questions, that's okay. I'm not researching the Carpenters at the moment, in fact, I'm working on another big project. Whenever I get back to work on the Carpenters, I can always write again.

Garrett David Buckner
Hi

I see you have listed a definite birth and death date for Garrett David Buckner. Unfortunately, while he is thought to be buried in or near this cemetery, there is no headstone for him so no dates are available. The only primary information in public records for his birth in the 1850 census (born about 1809 in NC) and death his probate (death about August 1853).

Since these dates have been added to Find-A-Grave, people are using them as primary documentation for his birth and death dates, but no documentation has been provided. Would you please provide documentation for these dates?

Thanks for all your hard work!
