Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist interested in local history. Born and raised in New Jersey, I'm a "Jersey Shore" girl that still loves the beach! My husband and I relocated to North Carolina in 2001 and and we just love our new adopted home.

I try and photograph local cemeteries; and whenever I add a photo to Find-A-Grave I try and add some sort of biographical information on the person. Having done the research on my own family, I know how helpful any clue can be in tracing ancestors. I welcome any changes or additions to information I've submitted, and will gladly transfer ownership to any family member requesting. Please contact me through the EDIT tab on any memorial I added by using "Suggest a correction or provide additional information".

RE: Tempy Ann Hollingsworth
I am so sorry that I caused this confusion. After reading your message, I went back to my original research, and you are right. Harriet O. was Tempy Ann's mother. This will teach me not to rely on memory, no matter how sure I am that I am right.

Tempy Ann Hollingsworth
I appreciate all the information that this contains, but I have a correction. Tempy Ann was not Harriet O. Cockrell Hollingsworth's daughter. She was Andrew J. Hollingsworth's second wife's daughter. Harriet died soon after her only child was born, and Andrew married Penelope Cockrell. All the rest of the children are hers.

RE: # 35746293 Tommie Mial
Thanks. I realize that sometimes people take up to 6 months or longer prior to mounting a headstone, and when they order after the passage of time, they provide the engraver with info off the top of their head, verses verifying via official documents. I just belieive hid Dad was grieving and couldn't think properly. Blessings, Sandi :-).

Hi there :::waving::: I recognize his headstone says he died Jan 6, 1914, but per his official DC, it says he died Jan 6, 1915 and was buried Jan 7, 1915. His father, Hilary Mial is the informant for the DC

first, I am not related, simply found his obituary on the same page of the newspaper while looking for someone else, so I typed it out and posted it.

Thanks so much for putting all of these on Find A Grave. Mine are Spader.
There are a few duplicates. I've sent a note to the Spader duplicate people.
Again many thanks for all your work

Cornelius Shaddle and Shaddle Family
Hello from a fellow family history researcher! My name is Tracy Beauregard and I am researching the Shaddle family. I came across the Find A Grave Memorial #54784001 for Cornelius Shaddle. Thank you for all you do! The information you've posted is potentially very helpful.

I'm researching a David Shaddle found in the 1810 Federal Census in Montgomery, Orange County, New York. Both a David Shaddle and a David Shaddle, Jun is listed in this census. I'm considering the possibility that David Shaddle Sr. is the father of Cornelius and his siblings, and perhaps David Jun is yet another. I believe the name has connections to both New York and Pennsylvania. The earliest I can find David Shaddle in Orange/Ulster County, New York is in 1800 via Tax Assessment Rolls of Real and Personal Estates, 1799-1804. There is a David Shaddle who married Magdalena Ammerman in 1774 in New York City. Source for this was found in, Selected Extracts from Landholders of Northeastern New York 1739-1802, p.263, Marriage ID 2220279359.

I believe my ancestor Mary Shaddle Lee is a daughter of David Shaddle Junior. I am just now digging into additional vital and church records for this family. I believe David Shaddle Junior's children are Hannah, Mary, Thomas, and Elizabeth. There may be more, but I'm very curious about what you have on the Shaddle family and would love to exchange notes. Many thanks! Tracy Beauregard, NC

My husband is the Great (a couple of times) grandson of William James Harriss. Where did you get the civil war information?

No one in the family knows of him losing a leg. Not sure if you have the correct info, but very intrigued!
