My goal is to provide accurate up-to-date information for my family members, as well as linking them up, parents, spouse and children listed. However, I have added some very close friends and/or neighbors. If my children or grandchildren one day start to search they will find reliable information on our family.

Moses "Hopper" Edwards
Hi, Julie--

Your Moses Edwards popped up in my Ancestry hints because I have a Moses Edwards in my family tree as well-- although mine was born to Uriah Edwards and Mildred Head in Virginia around 1757.

I found the story of your Moses intriguing so when his pension record also came up as a hint, I took a look. I'm so sorry to mention it, but I found a discrepancy. His pension record states that he was born in Pittsylvania County, Virginia-- not Pennsylvania. I don't blame you. It can really be challenging to read and decipher materials that were written by hand! Plus, Pittsylvania is indeed similar to Pennsylvania.

That he was born in Virginia would also suggest that he may have been related to my Edwards ancestors as well.

Thank you!

Deleted - sorry
Hi Julie,

I've deleted the memorial from Kraft-Graceland and I do sincerely apologize to you. I don't normally create memorials for stones I see that have no death date, so I apparently was absent-minded that day and had bad judgment. Again, I apologize. I appreciate all the help you've sent my way.

St. Stephen's Cemeteries
Hi Julie - I did indeed get your messages -- and believe me I am very well versed in the Find A Grave guidelines about duplicates -- but the memorials in question are in the incorrect St. Stephens Cemeteries in Delmar, Delaware. I personally know this as I have not only walked, documented, photographed and met with the people who have the two lot books (I'm a member of a neighboring Episcopal Parrish) but have been working with Find A Grave for a couple of years now to untangle the many, many knots that folks have made withing these two cemeteries that are about a mile apart. The ones that I have posted photos for are 100% in that actual cemetery (and Find A Grave is working on getting the ones in the wrong cemeteries merged). It would save people a LOT of time if they would be more careful when they create the "original" memorial by either actually hitting the yard, or stopping and reading the multiple signs posted. Thank you for your patience.

Simeon Eskridge
Good to know cousin. My tree back to Simeon is:
Mother: June Eskridge
Grand Father: Charles D Eskridge Jr.
G Grand Father: Charles D Eskridge Sr.
GG Grand Father: Thomas Eskridge
GGG Grand Father: Simeon

Any you know the rest of the connection.

I dabble a lot in Ancestry Research, so when I saw you note on his Find a Grave Memorial, I knew we had to be distant relatives and wondered how

Simeon Eskridge
So how are you related to Simeon Eskridge and Minerva Martin? I saw your note on his memorial is why I ask

Morris & Polk cemeteries, Paynes Depot
Hello, my mother lived in Paynes Depot abt 1945-47 as a teen. I notice you have a Morris Family cemetery & Polk Homestead on Find A Grave. I live abt 5 miles from the area. If you have the location, directions, etc I will try to look for grave markers in the near future. I have been looking for older maps of the area (street maps) & having very little luck. Let me know if you have more info & I will try. & put Paynes Depot in the subject line

Thanks so much for all that detail! I don't need the marriage certificates (unless you would like to add them to the memorials). I think I have everything straight now. Thanks again!
