PLEASE list name AND cemetery in the subject line, along with the word "Findagrave" when you e-mail us (otherwise it may get deleted due to virus and spam protection)!

I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, please do NOT post photos to other Findagrave memorials; just let me know and I will upload them. It is okay with me for you to post my photos or biographies on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Findagrave memorial. You may also use my Findagrave information on your own personal website if non-commercial, but credit is again appreciated. Commercial uses will require my permission in advance.

I am more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials.

ALL REQUESTS FOR corrections, additional information, or transfers: PLEASE do so with the Suggest A Correction link on the memorial for that person. [Most memorials will have an 'Edit' tab on the upper right side of the memorial. Click on the 'Edit' tab, then click on the 'Suggest a correction' link on the Edit page.]

PLEASE NOTE: I'm very grateful for corrections and additional information, but I am sometimes receiving up to 50 requests a day and cannot reply to everyone. Please check back to ensure accuracy of memorial page updates.

Happy cousin/family hunting ... Kit & Morgan.

Just a ment and you opinion

What do you think of this article? By this, he's not there. I'm writing an article about the 16th of May duel. The ending seems uncertain.

Thanks

Carter Braxton's Mother
I'm very confused as your biography for Carter Braxton on his Memorial (#2803) states his mother died at his birth, and a newspaper article in the Virginia Gazette on 24 Sep 1736 for Mary Carter Braxton said "Last Friday, died Mrs. Mary Braxton, Daughter of the late Col. Carter, President of the Council of this Colony, and Wife of Mr. George Braxton, of King and Queen County: She was a Gentlewoman of a very good Character, well belov'd by her Neighbors and Acquaintance, and her Death is much lamented. She was lately delivered of a Son, and in a fair way of Recovery; but unhapily catching Cold, was soon carried off; and the Child also died the Monday following."

So the newspaper article said the child died. I'm very confused and hope you can help me understand.

Thank you.

Robert Paul Hillard
You left a comment for my Great Uncle Robert Paul Hillard... may I ask if you knew him personally? I understand from a number of our common Hillard family members that he was the black sheep of the family - it is unclear if family truly knew nothing of him and his life or if they knew and didn't want to acknowledge him or talk about him.

I am his brother Donald's granddaughter and have been following my family genealogy for almost 19 years now and had originally had assistance from Donald and their sister June, but both have since passed. I would truly like to learn more about Uncle Robert and would love to hear from you if you knew him personally.

Many thanks,
Ginny L Averett Kuhn

Helen Wadsworth 29492291 Find A Grave
Good afternoon,

Last week I submitted a request to link Helen to her Parents: Earl James Strong 43433865 and Lottie McGhee Strong 43434236.

Helen is my first cousin. She was born in Great Falls, Montana. I also have information on her husband, Ben Wadsworth and son Robert Wadsworth.

If you wish to transfer her memorial to be, that would be fine. Otherwise, I would appreciate your making the link. I have also uploaded a picture of Helen (graduation), I believe. Her father's line can be followed on find-a-grave to the immigrant ancestor. Thanks for your assistance.

Thank You!
Thank you for the transfer of Clayton Kille's memorial. I expanded his bio section to include details given in the "Poems" book compiled by Binford T. Shreve for his mother, Elizabeth (Kille) Shreve Chambers. Eventually I'll add more details and work on making the content flow a little better. I've linked the family members I manage to Clayton's memorial, and would appreciate you linking the memorials of Rachel Gaskill and Elizabeth Shreve Chambers. Best Regards, John D.
