Bio and Links
Most of my submissions are of relatives, or people related to my relatives. The exceptions are all of the Fort Steele submissions and some of the Billingstown Cemetery submissions. Both cemeteries weren't covered in Find A Grave, so I submitted the entire list of burials for Fort Steele and a partial listing of the Billingstown gravestones that I photographed. I also photographed the graves of unrelated people in St. Joseph, Fort Hill, and Forest Home Cemeteries. If anyone can add photographs to memorials I've created, especially in New York, it would be greatly appreciated.

My husband is the great grandson of Sarah Ellen Shearer and her 2nd husband Lewis Mundy. We therefore have been to Billingstown to see Henry and Delilah Shearer, Daniel and Luesa Spealman and the rest of the family.

I have a copy of the listing of all burials. There is a lot of info available. If I posted this info on each memorial would you be able to update?
example Emma Allbee I have dates, parents names and place of birth.

Thank you
Elaine Koehler

Keck Family
Mary Baer Keck (#57840290) is my 3x great grandmother and I noticed that you manage a couple memorials for her children. I'm trying to figure out where her first husband, Daniel Keck, is buried and was hoping you might be able to help me. The only solid information I have is that he was born abt. 1807 in Pennsylvania and was in Ohio by the 1850 census. By 1870 Mary is widowed. If you have any further information, please contact me!
Thank you!

Esther Bickford Whipple
I provoded an edit for Keziah Bickford to be the mother linked but you denied it a while back saying you would except it if I found proof. I didn't get that message until just now when I was browsing my edits!
Odd... anyways. I do have lots and lots of proof including an old family bible listing eleanor Clifford esther whipple and keziah morill as her children. It was written by keziah but somehow my grandmother (ggg) esther got it. Unfortunately there is NO message of the father. I'm not too convinced esthers mothers maiden name was bacon, but I need more prrof on that. Anyways keziah bickford who died 1856? I think it was (I'm off memory) was her mother.
Let me know....

I wanted to know if you would be willing to transfer management of memorials #14139055 (Elizabeth Barger Davis) and #14139045 (Joseph Davis) to me. They are my 5x great grandparents.

antipas gilman
Hi MShearer
if someone has incorrectly linked to your memorial you may have to ask and ask what is need to correct the error. they may have a helpfulful comment or else you might be able to contact the manager of the "Mary" that was never married to Antipas and ask them to remove the link (by edit).

Louisa Stedman Woodhull
Dr. John J. Stedman's second wife was the informant on the death record. Job Stedman was Benjamin's father. John was born in Ontario, Wayne Co., NY, not Poughkeepsie which is on the death record.

Would you mind if I bother you for a few things?

What info do you have that Dr. John was with Ichabod in Hillsdale MI?

I've never seen Louisa's obit and have not been able to locate it. I recently chose not to renew my subscriptions to and Genealogy Bank. Would you kindly send a copy to me?

I can't believe the name Victoria Claflin Woodhull never registered with me!

Louisa Stedman Woodhull
Thank you for all of your contributions to this wonderful website. I'm very interested to know where you got the information that Dr. John J. Stedman was Louisa's brother. My husband is a descendant of Stephen Van Rennsaeler Stedman.

Byron Woodhull
Thanks so much for the info on Byron. I am a descendant of Mayor Caleb Woodhull, so it is wonderful to be able to figure out the connections.
Thanks a lot.

RE: Wood Family
Since I am only the person who added the photo, I can not change the original listing of names/dates.
That would be Mary Jane Haight-Eckert

Glad I was able to post this picture!
