Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I first started looking for family a number of years ago now; I had no idea who my family was or where they came from other then Kentucky. I told people when they asked that were were just American Mutts. What a group of mutts they turned out to be. Most of my ancestors were here well before the American Revolution. While their name's rarely appear in the history books, they were part of the founders that helped shape the USA that we live in today.
Much of my research is from the kindness of others. I try to list my sources and give credit where it is due. If I miss someone, please let me know and I will give you credit.
Many of our ancestors graves have been lost over time and many the old records are now gone.
I try and include to the best of my ability where our family is likely to be buried and who they are related to.

Mistakes can and do happen. For that reason, I am always open for helpful corrections, additional information and transfer requests. Please use the "Edit" tab then "Suggest a Correction" tab on the memorial pages as that is what it is there for or contact me directly.
As for me; I was born in Eastern Washington State, lived in Arizona for a number of years and now reside in Western Montana.
I am a descendant of Peter and Dority Hart (ca 1740) Grayson CO VA/Ashe CO NC, Peter Winne that arrived in Albany NY from Holland about 1650, several Winthrope Fleet members. Last but not least a number of Palintine Germans, English Scotts and Irish with far too many names to list here.

Thanks to Find A Grave for letting me post my family information and all of the hard work posted by it's members. No one person can do all of this by themselves.

A simple request to other members, please use your own Bio to tell us a little about yourself and or the families or areas you are researching and not just to repost Find A Grave rules and guidelines.

RE: Susanna Lucy Leatherman Hurless
Hi Wes. It has been fun to do and educational. Wish we could take it back a couple more generations but I guess there are no more known graves. Thanks, Lorren

RE: William F. McCabe

I sent you a lengthy email to your personal email regarding Permelia.

Be careful what you wish for.

I look forward to speaking with you further about these folks and particularly our shared ancestor Elizabeth Campbell.

William F. McCabe

Are you related to the McCabes?

William is my second great grandfather.

If you are not related could you transfer William to me?

Additionally, I have new information regarding Permelia.

Gilbert Boster #58708321
Well, it pays to check. Found him in 1920 & 1930 census records and it appears that his mother was Carrie. Looking further I found his death certificate and lo! and behold! it lists his mother as Carrie, as I suspected, but his wife is listed as Mary Brumfield, so I guess I will leave the link. But I will go in and put in his bio that he is the son of William & Carrie to perhaps help others.

RE: Gilbert H Boster, 58708321
I think when I entered them I though it said MA and PA on the stones, but I see I was wrong - there is only MA, so I am inclined to agree with you that it is probably mother & son. I'll go see if I can find anything on Ancestry to help verify one of tother!

Henry Darnell
Hello, I processed the edits you sent on Henry Darnell. I have a question on the year, 1862 vs 1861. I see a birth record on saying August 27, 1861 was the birthdate and I see on Henry's mothers memorial you have August 27, 1862, which is the date you sent me. Do you know why there is a difference? Thank you. OZARKCHERYL

RE: Gerald Dean
Jerry was married to my third cousin Betty Dwyer. Her grandparents were Wigen's and I have many of her writing's as she kept good written stories. I am originally from Ayrshire, but haven't went to the Cemetery to find his grave stone. I am compiling a book for my mom who is in the nursing home. A good many stories are in it, including Betty and Jerry's wedding! Family was close. I never stayed in touch in the last 30 years since I was married. Do you have his obituary?

RE: Edgar Monroe Biddle
Thanks, Wes! Yes, I'm the grand-daughter of Ada May Biddle Dilks. Her father, my ggf, John Wesley Biddle, and Levi W. Biddle were brothers.

I've just begun to do research on my Dilks and Biddle ancestors and to use tools such as this. My father was adopted when he was a child by Harlan and Annabelle Holmes (Boone County), and we only knew a few of the Biddle relatives growing up.

Another confusion I'm having is that it seems some researchers and contributors have confused Sarah E (Kelley) Biddle, Levi's wife, with her mother-in-law, Sarah E (Martin) Biddle, wife of Jacob Biddle. I've only begun to try to understand this--I may well be wrong. If I start to feel comfortable with my research, I'll send you what information I have so that you can evaluate it and decide if changes to the Findagrave entries are warranted.
