Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I first started looking for family a number of years ago now; I had no idea who my family was or where they came from other then Kentucky. I told people when they asked that were were just American Mutts. What a group of mutts they turned out to be. Most of my ancestors were here well before the American Revolution. While their name's rarely appear in the history books, they were part of the founders that helped shape the USA that we live in today. Or maybe they are in some of the history books, if you know where to look.
Much of my research is from the kindness of others. I try to list my sources and give credit where it is due. If I miss someone, please let me know and I will give you credit.
Many of our ancestors graves have been lost over time and many the old records are now gone. I try and include to the best of my ability where our family is likely to be buried and who they are related to.

Mistakes can and do happen. For that reason, I am always open for helpful corrections, additional information and transfer requests. Please use the "Edit" tab then "Suggest a Correction" tab on the memorial pages or contact me directly.
As for me; I was born in Eastern Washington State, lived in Arizona for a number of years and now reside in Western Montana.
I am a descendant of Peter and Dority Hart (ca 1740) Grayson CO VA/Ashe CO NC, Peter Winne that arrived in Albany NY from Holland about 1650, several Winthrope Fleet members. Last but not least a number of Palintine Germans, English Scots and Irish with far too many names to list here.

I ask a simple request of other members. Please do not use your Bio to post Find A Grave guidelines that are already covered on this site under "Help with Find A Grave" FAQs. Nobody posts rules, regulations and terms of service for a web site on a grave biography. Why do so on your own bio? A bio is supposed to be about a person, not about rules and guidelines.

Thank you to Find A Grave for letting me post family information and all of the hard work posted by it's members. No one person can do all of this by themselves.

Stanley Hatfield died 1847
Find A Grave Memorial# 55181654
Wes, did you supply the death date of 1847 for Stanley Hatfield who married Anna Comstock? Do you have documentation for this? I think this Stanley Hatfield died between 1821-1829 in Whitley Co, KY. Or, of course, I could be mixed up. Any help appreciated. Cheryl

Lawyer Family
Regarding your message, our Lawyer family was in Fayette County, Ohio (originally from Virginia). I don't know of any Frederick in the family, but I don't have all collateral lines.

RE: Corinth Cemetery
...which I meant to add, was, in 1900 Martin Springs, 1910, Martins Fork.

I lived about two hundred yards from this Spring..have gotten many a gallon of water from it, for planting, for washing clothes, etc...we made molasses there one summer.

RE: Corinth Cemetery
After locating this, I am more convinced that the two Ellisons listed in this cemetery were not buried in it...perhaps another Sears cemetery...seems as infants they would have been buried close to where their parents actually lived.

I finally got the copy and paste thing to work...before it wanted to LINK and not copy...thanks for your time..

RE: Corinth Cemetery
It will not allow me to copy and paste but it is the first cemetery listed when you do a cemetery lookup and type in Sears and Whitley county..the two names in particular that I am dealing with are Charles Jefferson Ellison and Nannie Etta Ellison.

There was an old Sears place on the Bee Creek Road and I wonder if this is where these folks were buried? Needless to say, except the two Ellisons above, I cannot find the others at Corinth..

Perhaps this cemetery no longer exists at all...

RE: Corinth Cemetery
Sure, after looking at the dates of death on these, I wonder if the two Ellisons are EVEn buried at Corinth, but markers placed there long time after they and likely even after their parents were dead.

RE: Corinth Cemetery
I think there are two many instances of folks now in Corinth with Sears as place of burial on the death certificate for it to be a mistake on the person giving the info.

"The Old Corinth section is in Knox County while the new Corinth is in Whitley County. They are connected together as one cemetery now."

Old Corinth is on one ridge and new is on the ridge beside it...with a ravine between that is gradually getting filled in..or has been getting filled in over the years..All of this is Whitley County and the only connection to Knox is that Knox was the parent county of Whitley..the two are side by side.

Corinth Cemetery
Do you know if the Corinth Cemetery was once like before 1920 called Sears Cemetery? I have death certificates of people buried in Corinth that list Sears Cemetery as the place of burial.
