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".

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

William James Harriss Wilson 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!

Richard Henry Gatlin was son of Thomas D. Gatlin and Julia Pender. He had one brother, Thomas H. Gatlin, and two sisters: Caroline Gatlin and Georgianna Gatlin. Of these, Caroline married first Joseph John Anthony of near Scotland Neck, second Henry Johnston. Georgianna married Lemon S. Dunn. This is proved in the loose estates papers of Edgecombe. Hope this helps.

Deborah Vanderveer Coddington
Just read your interesting post on Deborah Vanderveer and David Coddington. Just wanted to alert you to the fact that the mother of Deborah Vanderveer was Deborah Voorhees, not Sarah. Deborah Voorhees was born Nov 16, 1765 at Flatbush, NY, d May 1, 1847 (or1849) and is buried in New Brunswick, NJ First Reformed Yard. She was the dr of Peter Voorhees, and was married 1st to another Peter Voorhees, son of Abraham and Adriantje Lefferts Voorhees. Her Voorheees husband died soon after, and she married as second wife to Garret VanDerveer son of Jan and Sytje VanDerveer of NJ Garret was bap Oct 6, 1750 at Six Mile Run. By Garret Vanderveer they were the parents of John (1796-1833); Mary (1798-1833); Jane (1800; Deborah (1807-1882) and Abigail (1809). Kris

I transferred Mr. Schuring's memorial to you as you requested. So glad I could help you find him. I was wondering about his marker when I photographed it, thinking it must have been a transfer, as Doyle has only been in existence since the late 1980's. Best of luck finding all those you seek. Regards.

John Allen Vines
Thank you so very much for your addition of John Allen Vines photo and family information. I am kin to the Pitt & Beaufort Co, NC Vines family. Still working hard on verifying the family history. I was born and raised in Wilson, so I have relatives at Maplewood Cemetery. I did not know about the John Allen Vines family. Thank you is so small to say after all the work you have completed. I live in Florida now, but will be in Wilson soon. I will go to the Maplewood, and look up the John Allen Vines plot. pbfries, you are amazing!

Take care,
Dianna Tyson Farr, the great granddaugter of Samuel Vines & Dicey Johnson Vines
