Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm doing my best to connect family links (parents and children) to my kin (direct and collateral) and really appreciate all who have kindly added the connections for me. I'm glad to add yours also.

Check out if you're interested in the symbols found on gravestones. Neat informative site. Are you a taphophile or tombstone tourist? I am.

Check out Scotch-Irish Presbyterians From Ulster to Rockbridge, by © Angela M. Ruley, 3 October 1993. Angela headed the Rockbridge Area Genealogy Society and wrote several impressive publications on Rockbridge Co. This well written article combines pretty much everything I've found and more.

I welcome all additions, connections, corrections or changes and transfers so please feel free to contact me.

CONTACT ME FOR GENEALOGICAL HIRE for research, especially in VA/MD/PA, through any of my memorials.

Please send REQUESTS for CORRECTIONS, CHANGES OR TRANSFERS through the EDIT feature on the specific memorial (top right).

Ulster Scots
Many Ulster Scot descendants don't know this story. To think Scot Presbyterians had their fingers chopped off and their children killed only because of their religion!

Thank you! There are very few Scotch Irish from Ulster descendants who know this heritage. I think it is an interesting story.

Is Scotch Irish Presbyterins From Ulster by Angela M. Ruley a book or an article? If it's an article could you tell me the name of the publication? Thanks!

I connected her to her parents, I have been trying to get caught up on this family for some time, I had some information a cousin gave me back in the 1980's that her mother and grand mother did back in the 20's and 30's and I was trying to prove most of it, but neglected to add it to her memorial on find a grave,thanks for calling it to my attention, Marilyn

Oh, I see. I thought I was suppose to do something, but had not done it. I realize now that I had requested you to lmake the link! Thanks for clarifying.

RE: Anne H Ruffner Barclay, 110228621
I am not sure what you need me to do. I am confused by your email, as I do not recall rejecting anything. If you would like to manage this memorial I will happily transfer it to you. Just let me know.

Dear LSP,

Don't know how I would have missed the PoD, that is not like me as I am always trying to enhance memorials. Whatever happened, I'm glad you caught it.

Best wishes to you and yours for a very happy 2015 too.
