Please feel free to contact me about any graves I have listed. If I have listed someone that you are related to and I am not and you would like them transferred to you, please just let me know. If we are both related then I will have to think about it. Please feel free to use any of my photo's anywhere you want.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(rev 21:4)

"Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I 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."

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.

Oliver Hilliar / Hillard
Hi Barbara,

I see that you maintain Oliver Hilliard's memorial #20841143, do you know where his son, Isaac Hilliard/Hillard (1737-1823) is buried, he married Sarah White (1740-1825), who is my 1st cousin, 8x removed. I can not find her or his burial place.

I found a Mortuary Notice in which it states; Died - Lately, in Amenia, Capt. Isaac Hillard, aged 79 years. The deceased was a soldier of the Revolution. I checked with Amenia, Dutchess County, New York and could not find any burial of him or his wife Sarah White Hillard. Their son, Isaac Hillard's wife and children are buried there, however, not Junior. What happened to Isaac Hillard, Sr., and Jr. ??

Can you help?

Delilah Hubbard #28653913
I'm trying to find evidence of Delilah's full name. Her marriage record with Shadrick has Malinda Hubbard. I think this is the one time she actually has a record of herself where the name Malinda is shown.

I have found nothing that indicates there is a name with an H initial. Would you tell me what the H. stands for that is given in the memorial? Could it possibly be for Hubbard and was a misprint somewhere along the line?

Also, do you know where she was actually born? As I've looked at various records, it appears that there are other states (Missouri, Virginia, and Arkansas) that have been attributed to her birth place. The only Arkansas record is on her memorial, so I'm thinking maybe you have something I don't have as to her birth.

Thank you for your help. I appreciate your work on her memorial. It is great.

William Harkness

Thanks, for your quick reply, Sorry, I used Jr. and Sr. to separate the two generations. If you have access to There are quite a few supporting documents for William Harkness, KWCR-712, including his death certificate. None of the documents except Find A grave list him as William Thomas Harkness.

FamilySearch also lists comments recently added by Thomas Harkness, grandchild of William Thomas Harkness. His comments refer to the correct name of our Great Grandfather William Harkness, as indicate on his headstone.

Thomas Anderson is William's father in-law. From the time William married, Elizabeth Anderson, till they came to America, the two families lived close to each other. Both William Harkness and Thomas Anderson, worked in the Belfast linen mills.

Family believes, William Thomas Harkenss, was named after his father William Harkness and his Grandfather Thomas Anderson.

We sure appreciate your attention in correcting William's name. If you have any record supporting his name as William Thomas Harkness, please share it with us.

Thank you,

William Harkness
I'm sorry, I should explain, his son's name is William Thomas Harkness. Thomas is the name of William Sr. father in-law. William Jr. is most likely named after his grandfather.

William Harkness

I've sent an edit asking for Thomas to be removed as a middle name for William Harkness. He had a child named Thomas. Family researchers have not found records that include Thomas as a middle name.
