Bio and Links
Bio Photo Currently living in Denver, CO. USA. A descendant of 17 Magna Carta Barons. A 12th generation Mayflower descendant, also a Mary Barrett Dyer descendant (13th generation). I have been researching our genealogical lines for about fifteen years.

Current areas of most interest:

Locke and Buckingham families that migrated from Devon, England to USA in the 1800's.
Chipman Families in Pennsylvania and Texas USA.

1800's Hudak family of Pennsylvania that migrated from Eperjes, Slovakia now Presov, Slovakia and also Hanusfalu, Szepes, Hungary which is now Hanušovce nad Topľou, Slovakia.

*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•* Dear Ancestor *•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•*
"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'd 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."

RE : Sarah Purdy
Hi there,

Sorry it's taken so long for a response, but I do actually do have a photo of a Sarah Purdys headstone, but her death year is 1972, not 1960, so I'm not sure if it's the same one. Birth year is 1884. I don't see a memorial on Find A Grave for her, so I will add one later on.

Black Friars, Pontefract
Hello Lizzie,
I noticed you requested photos for Black Friars in Pontefract. I live in Pontefract and that graveyard and church are long gone I'm afraid. I do have a couple of photos of maps showing it's original location if you would be interested. The Valley Gardens are now in it's place,which I also have photos of should they be of any use.

RE: Margaret Martin McGahey
Looks like her husband William was a glass blower. There were several glass blowers in this family. Any chance they lived in Millville NJ, there was a factory there.

I also have several Gorman's in my tree, any idea how Catherine Gorman might be related? Also what was your grandmother's first name & date of birth. Found a Helen R born April 1896. I'm trying to link them all. Thanks

Can you tell me more about your Aunt Peg & how she came to meet her husband & move across the great state of PA. I am related to McGahey's in Phila & would love to be able to connect more family members. Thank you.

James Purdy
Hi Lizzie,

I added a picture of James E Purdys headstone. I also came across another stone with the Purdy name, with a John J. (1909-1951) and a David C. (1884-1965) buried there. Not sure if they are also a relation, but they were buried in fairly close proximity. I did get a picture, but don't see a listing here on Find A Grave, so I'll likely make one later on this evening, but still wanted to let you know!

Robert E. Dunn
Just to let you know that he is not buried in Richmond but in Charlottesville, VA. I see you have a photo request for him # 123920245. You might want to delete that and put a request in for him in Charlottesville. His memorial is 130109529. Thought you might like to know.

Are Elizabeth and William Pike family members of yours? It looks like someone already claimed your request, but if they don't fulfill it let me know. I just live around the corner from the cemetery and if it's the people that I think it is, my husband and I are good friends with their son.

Natalie Marino
I saw your photo request for Natalie Marino. Unfortunately, the photo volunteers aren't able to request the location of any of the graves. Only you can get that information. Just call the Mountain View Cemetery at: 510-658-2588. And be sure to edit your photo request with the location. Otherwise, you'll be waiting forever for that photo.

Henry and Elizabeth Willey
This couple is buried in Delaware Cemetery. They MAY be my 4th great-grandparents. Does anyone have any information regarding these people?
Thank you.
