Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started working on my Family Tree when I was just ten years old. My mother's sister got me started, I think today she would be arrested for child endangerment. I was the only 10 year old in my neighborhood with a five drawer government issued gray filing cabinet filled with files of birth, marriage and death certificates, census reports and Civil War pension files. By high school I was skipping school to take the Metro bus into downtown Washington, DC to go to the National Archives to spend the day in a room filled with big gray manually operated microfilm machines scanning census reports one page at a time looking for my ancestors. We're talking the mid 70s, before indexes, computers, Family Tree Maker or Ancestry.com.

I split my time between my homes in Los Angeles, California and Deposit, New York so I can do my historical and genealogical research.

I am very thankful for Find A Grave, all your entries have helped me greatly. I research not only my line but all the siblings of my line. As a British lady friend of mine so aptly put it, "your not doing your family tree darling, your doing the whole bloody forest!"

When I create a memorial, I research the individual and write a biography for them. Even when I am "doing the whole bloody cemetery!"

If I have made any errors in their history or have any typographical error, please let me know and I will gladly correct them. I am sure I have OCD and mistakes really bother me.

"The man who feels no sentiment for the memory of his forefathers, who has no regard for his ancestors, or his kindred, is himself unworthy of kindred regard or remembrance." ... DANIEL WEBSTER

Gearld Hine
Eunice Hine Whitaker
Her actual name was Eunice Hine and not Hines. Her father was Ambrose Hine.
Many times in various records especially census ones the name is put down as Hines, but in this case it is Hine.
I also have birth as 5 Oct 1783 and death as 28 Nov. 1835 Dates are based on U.S., Sons of the American Revolution Membership Applications, 1889-1970 for Eunice Hine.
However if gravestone says death as 23 Nov 1835 and it also says 53 yrs,1 month,20 days then birth would be Oct 3 1782.
I have dates as 3 Oct 1782 and 28 Nov 1835.going by gravestone your find a grave dates are correct and we assume gravestone is correct. as you know there have been mistakes there also.
therefore if you would change name that will be good.
thanks
G.V. Hine

Wallings -- Laurel Hill Cemetery
Am delighted you listed Alexander and Phoebe Walling, then sent an edit request to me to link their daughter Clarissa Walling Dewing at Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, California. Clarissa is my busband's gg grandmother. He heard many stories about her from his own grandmother.

When I couldn't find Alexander or Phoebe's gravesites, was concerned that because he died in New York, and she in Maryland, that they might have not been interred together. You've put that to rest!

Thank you so much,

Linda
