RE: Col. Thomas James Venham #7931630
If your 4th great Grandfather, Ray Venham (only son of George Vennum and his wife, Mary Hardesty to spell surname Venham) dates are 27 Mar 1773 born in Anne Arundel County, Maryland and 4 mar 1855 died in Tyler County, West Virginia; then yes he is a brother of Thomas James Vennum and seven other siblings. I have records back to Thomas' grandparents, George Vennum and his wife Pressilla Jones. Did your Ray/Rhea (short for Uriah) marry Rebecca Stewart and had at least seven children. Let me know if you need more information.
Your distant cousin,
Mary Richards

You can add all the family links yourself. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance. You may use anything from mine that you find that you can use.

Francis and Betsey Bennett
I don't know of anything new about Francis. his and Betsey's memorials were passed on to me and I left them as they were. I agree that his year of birth is likely 1747(ish).

I've seen:
21 Nov 1745 - Family Data Collection - Births Record & Individual Records
2 Nov 1745 - Rhode Island, Vital Extracts, 1636-1899
abt 1747 - Vermont, Vital Records, 1720-1908
1750 American Genealogical-Biographical Index (AGBI)
abt 1747 - based on the stone made by his son, Solomon

Sure would be nice to have a paper that we can see with our own eyes!

I added the maiden name disclaimer to Betsey's bio.

Booker T Washington Highland Park cemetery ohio
I don't have any information on this family. As I'm not related.

I've never talked to anyone at Highland Park Cemetery either,
Main Office: Highland Park Cemetery

Highland Hills, Ohio 44122
P: 216.348.7210
F: 216.348.7209
Tuesdays through Saturdays 8 am to 4:30pm

I'm sure your aware that the Cleveland Public Library has a necrology files on line. look under research.

If you've searched there before, also try Booker T Washington and than do a keyword search.

Hope this helps.

Texana Wilson article
Hi Cheryl, I'm going to e-mail you an article in the Sunday newspaper from Wheeling, WV . There is a Historic tour in the Greenwood Cem. this coming Sunday and one the people being portrayed is Texana Wilson. There are five pages I had to cut it down to scan it, I just thought you maybe interested in it. Also in April some volunteers reset some of the stones in Mt. Wood that had fallen off their base and the Wilson stone was one of them. Carla :)

RE: Grave Marker Photos
You are very welcome! I have pictures of the other sides of the memorial if you are interested in those as well. Glad I could help!

Regarding your question
Where to you find so much of the biographical data that you find?

I use a variety of sources. I usually start with GenealogyBank. If I do not find any biographical material there - I use a general search engine like DuckDuckGo, Dogpile, Google, etc. I use a variety of search terms to find information. Sometimes I use the name of the person or their name plus a spouse, their name plus their place of birth, etc.

During the search process newspaper articles may appear from databases like This database is one carried by many libraries and can be accessed from home using your library card and your pin number.
