Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew-up in Fresno County on a 20 acre Thompson Seedless vineyard & farm. My Prunty and Grimm grandparents came to CA in 1905 from Ritchie County, WV. My mother's family, Westbrook and Skaggs are in Alton, IL. I am working on my genealogy for the Grimm's and Prunty's. I have a Batchlors degree in Business and I am retired from the State of CA. I am happily married and I have one son Brannon, who was born in 1977.
I add all Prunty's in the US that have died if I find their obituaries.
But, instead of adding many new memorials, I fix and add information to update the current memorials of my family and friends, mostly in WV and other states. I belong to and I get the correct information from there.

Anna Newton - Sarah Richardson
Bette, I have questions about Anna Newton #90505613, and her daughter, Sarah Marie Newton Richardson #150702901 - which is a page you manage.

Anna is buried in Beverly Cemetery, Beverly OH. Her grave indicates she is the wife of Nathaniel.

On Sarah's page, her parents are listed as Nathanial and Anna (Batterson) Slaterly, and is linked to Anna Newton. I am confused as to the Slaterly name, and I am hoping you can help me with this.

I would like to know the source of this information, and I would also like the history of the wonderful photo of Sarah.

My direct line ancestor is Sarah's brother, Mark Anthony Newton.

I visited Anna's grave in OH, but I did not find Nathaniel's grave. Any information on this would also be appreciated.

Thank you, Joyce

Hi Bette,

I'm interested in Ernest Cortland Sperry and his wives. On his Find A Grave memorial, you mention a marriage certificate for him and Cora Bell Campbell. May I ask where you located that? The only thing I can find linking him to Cora is a City Directory entry in 1929 in Clarksburg, WV.
Any help would be appreciated.

Eldon Grimm
Hello Bette,

I just sent you an email about your father Eldon Grimm. I believe that he may have served with my great uncle Robert Lyle Greer and his friend Harry R Grove during WWII.

I hope to hear from you soon
