Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for over 30 years, my main interests are my ancestors in the Shaffer, LeBroke, McIntosh, Rister, Wadsworth, Cecil, Reeves lines. I got most of my material from the LDS Church films and many a trip to the DAR Library in Washington DC. I have visited many cemeteries although I have found many mistakes in their inscriptions. I welcome any mistakes that you find and gladly correct them.Happy Hunting!

Rosannah Friend
Carol, I'm sorry about the errors when I made the posting for Rosannah. Is her birth in Washington Co. still good? And she did die in 1861 rather than 1860 as the tombstone says? I know there are often wrong dates on the stones, but I like to make sure. Thanks.

Hi Carol,
Just wanted to let you know I posted headstone photos from Adina Cemetery for these two folks. There were also pictures of them on their headstones that I took.

I deleted mine but as you know I had entered mine in 2008. I am not possessive about these entries but some people will be, just a kind word for you. I have been yelled at in emails before for this same thing. Have a great search.

RE: No listing on FAG
I think you can put up a cemetery on Find A Grave IF you know it exists and all that without putting people in it. I know nothing about Old Swallow Cemetery. Where it's located, etc. Once up on Find A Grave people can be put in it.

No listing on FAG
Didn't find a listing on Find A Grave for Old Swallow Cemetery, Paris Maine. Can you put it up since you apparently have a photo of it? I don't know anything about it so would feel odd putting it up as.


Btw, did you check out the Martha Foster line yet? Humdinger! Chris Child just completed his book on Nelson family and include Abner Foster/ Lydia Nelson AND Abner Jr and Polly Hilton...I gave him the info and he found it enough so he included!!! Took me ages to get that much but!!!
