We are ALL part of this magnificant GIANT historical jigsaw puzzle!
I always have and still do love puzzles. And I have been bitten by the genealogy research bug for years!
Better than fiction!
I am NOT involved with findagrave for the numbers. I research every person for whom I create a memorial for accuracy and in an attempt to include as much information as possible.
Whenever possible, I also try to link family members. I feel that is most important and a way to have them all 'reunited.'
About death certificates - I ask politely that you please don't post any to my memorials. I like to honor their life and history. My humble opinion is that their death is a personal/private matter for not only the deceased but also the family/descendants. I do welcome any photos of the individual so we can see them when alive.
This is a marvelous venue to not only recognize, remember and HONOR those who have passed before us, but also to assist families in the future in finding their ancestors and hopefully even seeing a photo of their headstone.
My sincere thanks to all findagrave contributors and photographers for all you have done for me and the entire findagrave community! It takes a village!
Post Script: I am disappointed that 'some' contributors do not fill edit message requests -- don't include additional info provided or link to other family members requested. I realize we are ALL volunteers here and everyone's lives are busy. However for those who simply ignore SAC's, I think that is very unkind. At least the courtesy of a message back to me or a transfer if you don't care to make edits, please? I'd be happy to make them.
For the MOST part, the cooperation and sharing on this site are tremendous and heart-warming.
A special thanks to contributor peace4me- she is a prolific and wonderful photo contributor and a super nice person to work with! She is incredible with photos in Wheeling West Virginia and beyond!
Also much thanks to Larry Ault and his incredible knowledge of Ohio families and sharing of info and photos!
Remember: be kind to one another!

I linked Mary Leona BAUER to Daniel Irvin as you suggested. Thank you.
|Banana ana||your message to me RE Sprowls|
For some reason I don't know why, I don't have Edna Sprowls on my tree. I know she was descended from John S Sprowls
but I don't have her on my tree. Who was her mother, Was John S Sprowls her father?
Do you have Sprowls on your family tree?
If you do I found a website today called
theroyfamily.com it has Dorcas Towne Sprowls' family tree on it.
very interesting even goes to lady Godiva.

I have added the information you provided to his memorial as you requested. Sorry for the short delay. Things have been busy for me with the new house and new baby. I hope things are going well with you.
Let me know if you have any other good stuff.
MyFamily is owned by ancestey.com. They hadn't updated it or improved it in any manner for years. I suspect it became too expensive for them to just maintain it.
It could have been a Facebook which sold ads and raked in cash, but they missed the boat by limiting their sites to family communication. If they would have developed it as a social media site, it might have been a world changer.
We do have a Belmont County facebook page, actually two, if you want to stay in touch. We are also looking for other alternatives.
Keep in touch,

In re-reading your reply, I noticed that I failed to answer a question of yours. . .
Botsford Green was my Great-Grandfather,and his son Irvin was my Grandfather. Irvn is my mother's father. (My mother is listed in Find A Grave as Clara Green Moore; Green being her maiden name and Moore from her second marriage). Jno Green, who was/is also buried at Green Cemetery, is my Great-Great-Grandfather. He was born in SC. I'm almost certain, but can't prove it, that Ann Green, who was born in Virginia in 1783 and is also buried at the Green Cemetery, would be my Great-Great-Great-Grandmother.
Actually, it I've been stuck for years searching back, because many of my relatives were illiterate and I have no "Family Bibles", etc. If I knew Ann's maiden name, I'd have a shot at finding her in Virginia. The only thing that I have to suspect she is who I think she is, is a census or two that Jno stated that his parents were born in Virginia, and she would have been around 20 or 21 when Jno was born.
But. . .I'm sure I'm giving you more than you asked for. . .
|Jenny Lofgren||RE: Cunningham at Buchanan|
Hi - thanks for your reply. I believe Daniel Cunningham was probably buried on family land, but I don't have an exact location. His wife, Jane, would have been born sometime around 1795-1799.
