My name is Jennifer and I'm a genealogy addict. (Do I hear you saying, "Hello, Jennifer!"?)
I've been getting very good exercise climbing my family tree and I am delighted with this wonderful site! If I have any time left over ~wink~ I spend it with my lovely family and my kindergarten class.
I have quite a few shirt-tail relatives in my care --- if you're "more related" than I am PLEASE don't hesitate to request a transfer! I'd much rather a closer relative had care of them. :)

Rebecca Stewart Hi Jennifer, I am hoping you can help me with this. My great grandparents, James Stewart and Rebecca Stewart are buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Hickory PA. Rebecca's middle name would be Moore, d/o James Moore and Eleanor Sutton Moore.
I this family in your line? If not, I would like ask you to tranfer these memorials to me, as I can add more bio information.
The parents of this James Stewart are John Stewart and Margaret Thom Stewart-buried in the old churchyard at Grove UP Church in West Middletown.
If you have any verified info on James that differs, please send me a message. I would like to make sure I have correct info.
RE: Ralstons I will be happy to do the links. Do you know if Charles Ralston is the father of the children buried with William and his wife? I think he is and I will link him, but would like a confirmation to be sure.
Ralstons You asked for other Ralstons if I found them. I did.
I found Edward L. Ralston (1957) and the cemetery records indicate that Helen Pyle Ralston is buried in the same grave as Edward. She died in January 1967 and was 76 years old at time of death. However, I did not see an individual headstone for her.
Other Ralstons I found (and created memorials for) are:
Mildred Ralston - Died Nov 3, 1920 - Age 15 - Block B Lot 28 Grave 2
Francis L. (Fannie) Ralston Died June 1914 Age 58 - Block B Lot 28 Grave 3
William A. Ralston Died June 1914 Age 58 - Block B Lot 28 Grave 4
Edward Ralston Died February 2, 1920 Age 16 - Block B Lot 28 Grave 5
Margaret Ralston Died May 21, 1615 Age 18 months - Block B Lot 28 Grave 6 (Headstone says Jane and cemetery records and death notice indicate it's Margaret Jane).
I will be happy to transfer these memorials to you if you want them. There is quite an interesting, although sad, article about how William and Fannie died. I have posted the newspaper clipping. The children buried in the same plot with him and his wife must be their grandchildren. Their father was Charles Ralston who I believe is William & Fannie's son. I think he is the Charles Ralston who is buried in New Hill Cemetery at Anaconda, Deer Lodge County, Montana, USA. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=ralston&GSiman=1&GScid=1987468&GRid=105384782& I did not link them, but Im pretty sure its the same family. I found a lot of information on Ancestry.com about these Ralstons. Let me know if you want them transferred to you. Or if you find anything that is incorrect I will certainly be happy to fix it.
The Ralston family was quite well known in the Big Hole/Wise River area. I remember the name from my childhood as my aunt and uncle lived in Wise River.
