Bio and Links
Bio Photo My love of research and genealogy since 1981, and my dedication to the cemeteries that I have been visiting for people to find where their loved ones are buried, is truly enjoying. We enjoy the peace in these old cemeteries. My husband and I love finding and taking pictures of the old headstones and wonder what history they must contain.

If you come across one of your loved ones which I have added, and there is an error, please feel free to let me know. I will be happy to transfer memorials over of your immediate family members, unless it is a family relative.

Please note & take into consideration that I am not related to a lot of whom I have added. I add them to Find A Grave so family members can also find where their ancestors have been put to rest.
Sincerely, Laura

Find a Grave memorial number 12317641
Hello Laura,

There is reference to a Jennie Lightfoot Wise in this memorial number 12317641. It says her father and grandfather were Crow Indian Chiefs. This is not correct.

First: Jennie Wise does not have a middle name of Lightfoot.

Second: Her father and Grand father were not Crow Indian Chiefs. She has no connection to the Crow Indians. She is of German decent.

Her father is Jonathan Wise as stated, but he is NOT a Crow Indian. Her mother is Margaret Clemmons as stated.

It also states that her first husband was Ethan Allen Brody that is correct. But, it states Ethan's father is Lorenzo Brainard and his mother is Susan Howe, that is not correct. Those are the father and mother of Jennie's second husband, James E Brainard.

The parents of Ethan Allen Brody are John J Brody and Abigail Ellen Lightfoot. Some how the name of Lightfoot got connect to Jennie as her middle name.

Thanks for all your good work. I hope this helps to keep the info out there as accurate as possible.

Regards,

Michael V Wise

RE: JACOB A. HECKMAN
You mite connect Jacob with Elizabeth Dodd as husband and wife. As I confirm more, i will keep in touch.

We have a small PEARSON research group. This (I THINK) Jacob is my Elizabeth's brother. Elizabeth and Jacob were among the 10 children of Joseph Heckman and Catherine Unknown.

It is looking more and more like Catherine Unknown is the daughter of Christian Eby and Catherine Huber?? There is so much misinformation out there that it is difficult to tell.

IMy Elizabeth was born in PA and came to Bedford Co VA, then Franklin Co VA. In 1806 she married Thos Pearson, son of Private Thomas Pearson who fought in the Revolution. Elizabeth and Thos Pearson made their life together in the town of Henry, Va, in Franklin Co - Thomas was a wheelwright and their property was on the Carolina Road. I live on a small part of their property now.

Thank you for responding so quickly. If this sounds familiar to you, I'll be happy to keep you informed of our research. It's occurring to me that you may have already been down this road??

All the best,
Rebecca R. Dyer

LAURA,

ARE YOU FAMILY??

PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES B/C WHAT I HAVE IS NOT ORIGINAL RESEARCH. I DESCEND FROM JACOB'S SISTER ELIZABETH HECKMAN PEARSON AND AM TRYING TO DETERMINE IF CATHERINE'S LAST NAME IS EBY (MOTHER OF ELIZABETH AND JACOB). DO YOU HAVE INFORMATION ON THIS?

Elizabeth D Unruh
Hi

Hate tell you this after all this time - but you have her attached to the wrong Abraham Unruh - she was married to the son, not the father.

Just an FYI

Thanks!
Thanks for the quick transfers, Laura. I've been spending many, many hours updating Kimball Cemetery burial information. I have lots of information to add to the Lenburg burials.
