Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Name is Ronald A. Sykes, Sr, and have been working on my family History for over 40 years.

Any additional information, adding bio's, changing .or adding names, dates and location can be done, without asking me, by hitting the edit button.

With the new system of FaG, I OK the links, and changes, without question. However, this also means, I may or may not have linked or corrected memorials.

I am more than happy to any correct a problem, or link family members. As far as Transfer goes, please look at the rules set down by Find a Grave, before asking. I will take a look on a case to case basis, but normally follow those rules. Demands from, or rude people are always ignored. If you would like credit for something added, either put it in the bio section, or let me know and I will add it for you.

I normally make all requests within 24 hours. If not, don't worry, I will get to it. Sometimes, I take a day off, too.

AGAIN. I follow the rules of Find A Grave dealing with Transfers. I will make an exception on a case to case bases. However, those who are rude, or feel they have some kind of right, need not request.

You My permission to use any of my Headstone photo, for your personal use.

I have added his tombstone photo. A little history about Larch Hill. It was origianly a private family burial ground on the Asa Ames land in a grove of trees called "The Larches". When the ground was sold around 1900 it was said that the bodies were all moved to the Buckingham Cemetery near Traer, IA. However by the time that this happened his family had moved to the Plymouth County area. Since his tombstone was not moved along with a few others, I personally think that he and a few others are still buried there. I grew up in Buckingham and all of us kids used to play up in "The Larches" and new right were the old cemetery was. The tombstones are still there.

I see that you have added his memorial, is he related to you in your family tree. I see that you have his burial as unknown. He was buried in the Larch Hill Cemetery, Buckingham, Iowa and I have a picture of his tombstone. Would you like me to uploard it to his memorial?

Hi Ron. I have a few questions regarding some of the headstones. There are only 3 standing. Have you heard of where the others may have gone to? My great great uncle Joe is buried there. His wife Ella's headstone remains in fair condition.

are you related? You did have Thomas' siblings correct, but he also had half-siblings. I descend from his oldest sister Lillie. She is my gr-gr-grandmother on my father's side.

Seaton Mitchell 62303239
I wondered if you knew anything about Seaton or just happened to document his grave. He died in a flu epidemic and my mother was born several years later and Seaton's parents and my mother's parents were very close and Seaton's parents became very attached to my mother and kept in touch with her the rest of their lives. When I was born in '52 my grandmother told my mother she was bringing to her a special baby gift from Seaton's mother which wsa Seaton's sterling baby cup which said "Seaton" on it but had been altered by an engraver to read "From Seaton to James." Seaton had a new Oldsmobile when he died and it was kept in a commercial storage garage until 1948.

Hi Ronald,
Would you be willing to transfer my parents' memorials to me?
Actually someone else submitted duplicates for them years after you posted them -- so I guess your rights precede hers. I suppose the FAQs explain what to do in this case. I will have to read up on it. I have asked her to transfer them to me as well. I would like to have just one set for my parents with correct bios, photos and links to their parents, children and siblings.
Thank you for your consideration.

RE: Will and Bess Harris
Thank you sir for the transfer(s)

The Harris family and its links and photos and details have come a long way on Find A Grave since I started working on tying many of them together, and much of the groundwork laid out from folks like you have been so valuable in helping me learn so much.

RE: Arnold/Watts
PS. I will TRY update myself on the local area.

I just left northern Nevada last year. There
is so much I need to re-learn of this area.

You have 3 photo requests that may not be

RE: Arnold/Watts
I have found MUCH of recent.
I do not know how I find the time.

Preston was involved in a great-grand fathers
death, who was his brother-in-law.
Preston's sister died 4 days after a still-born child. Many of my grand-parents generation petitioned for Preston's prison release.

There is more, but I'll not add it here, yet.
