Bio and Links
Bio Photo Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

"Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes."
~Jim Tipton, creator of Find A Grave.

We have been researching for a couple decades. Families: Buckmaster, Patterson, Wollam, all variations of Teatsorth, Falk/Faulk, Johnson, Lee, Collier, Eschbarger, Orr, Brinton, Thomas, Grau, Hyde, Case, all variations of Brandeberry, Richcrick (Reichenbach), Slote, Balken, Ulmstead, Flower, Dick, Graham, Hyatt, and many more.

Also a focus on those who have fought for and kept us free ~ our American veterans. We have a virtual cemetery for these units: 31st and 49th Ohio Infantry who fought during the Civil War.

RE: William McSkelly
Thank you.
I have tried deleting it, but it has not worked.
I will explain the situation to Find A Grave. Hopefully they will understand and delete it.
Thanks again,

William McSkelly
I am trying to follow the guidelines of Find A Grave.
Since we are working together on the William and Mary Baughman Skelly family, would you mind deleting William McSkelly FAGM# 29820658. People won"t find him by that name. Are you related to him or Mary Ellen?
If you don't want to, I understand.

Thank you,

I have a very strong suspicion that the death year was not 1864, but is 1888 or later.
Would it be possible to check the grave marker sometime? It's probably faded and difficult to read.
Thanks, Michelle

RE: Mary Buckmaster McSkelly
Would you mind if we work together to make one nice FAGM page for Mary Ellen Baughman-McSkelly?
I think both of us want Mary to have a nice page.
I realize that her tombstone says MCSkelly. In reality their name was actually Skelly. William's Mother's maiden name was McCormick. William's middle name was McCormick. All of his census documents have his last name as Skelly. I know that this really confuses people. If you would change the last name to Skelly, (not Buckmaster-Skelly. People looking for her won't find her under that name.). Make notes of her marriage to Edmond Buckmaster and how William got his name. That would help. I will be glad to link her children to her.
Thank you,

RE: Lutie Lee
You left a message explaining your reason for declining my edit. You said that you showed her husband's parents as her parents. Lutie and Elza were husband and wife, not siblings. My edit was correct with the proof I sent you. I note that you have now added her maiden name and linked her as Elza's wife as I suggested, but my edit for her parents was never was never done.

Mother: Catherine Vanasdall Hendershot
(1849 - 1928)

Please check your edit tab for "edits you have declined," and it should be there. I checked mine tonight and it is in my edits that have been declined by others. I copied it above.

Thanks very much. Pam

drbuuck, although I just created an account for Find A Grave today, I've been utilizing this site for approx. 5 years now. I noticed you placed a flower on a Dora J. Buckmaster. While I don't think I'm directly related to her, I believe I am descended from a Mary (Timmons) BucKmaster - who I think may have been Dora's aunt. I would appreciate any information you might be able to help me with in regards to this possible link.
Thank you, Stephen.

Photo of Cemetery is not the Cemetery where David is buried. The Cemetery is Lake View but the entrance has an iron gate, it no way looks like the photo.
Also Dave and Julie Buckmaster are not relatives of David Duane Buckmaster.

Bedford W. Brandeberry
Dear drbuck:

Thanks for catch;ing the typographical errors in the memorial for Bedford W. Brandeberry. Yes, the f ending his first name was a mistake as was also 1012 instead of 1912.HIs childrenbyc Alice Marie Pfund are my second cousins.

I see you apparently have Ohio connections. Ny maternal links are very deep in Fulton County, Ohio.
