Bio and Links
Bio Photo It never ceases to amaze me how many people visit or create memorials for deceased people but balk at having a picture of a piece of paper that says someone has died.....?? Just saying!

I started doing research on my family tree around 1995 with my grandmother Dennis.

If you need edits to a memorial I have created please use the "EDIT" tab. When it comes to doing edits my SOP is to give credit to the person providing the information by siting their FAG member number in the "Note" section of the memorial. If you are not a FAG member and would like to provide an edit I will research the information first to make sure it's accurate since I don't have a FAG member to reference. If you would like to make multiple edits, please take the time to create a FAG membership. That way if there is a question about some information that was provided I will know where to turn. Also, you may find a long lost relative this way as well! I am more than happy to help with any research if needed.

As of February 2014 I am currently taking pictures of all the graves in Seaford Odd Fellows Cemetery so that I can enter them on FAG. After I enter everything I will go back and check for duplicates and any other problems. Thanks!

Good catch - I uploaded via spreadsheet and surprised Find A Grave didn't flag the duplicate. I'm not sure if last name Dukes, but am going to add your information to the memorial and hopefully have other feedback. How did you come up with your information? I can add that in the notes portion of the memorial. Thanks.

RE: Waller/Jester
Thanks so much. Do you mind if I attach that certificate to a tree? (Mary Washington Jones Jester Family Tree, Ancestry) My first reaction was that they lied about the widowhood because it was a Catholic wedding but technically both first spouses were dead before the wedding. Doris R. had been using Jester for some time and is buried that way but I never found a marriage. The only things I see with Emma Marr are the 1938 directory and 1940 census so those might have been assumed. I see John's middle initial is also wrong. At different times people probably assumed that the mother's name was Olivia as I've seen it before. I also can't find Doris's death. Maybe she was injured in the same accident; died in PA? She was born there so I thought that might have been her hometown or a family place; maybe the woman from York who was the informant for Clarence was Doris's sister or other relative. There is certainly more I don't know than I do. I'm glad Emma V. had someone.

RE: Waller/Jester
Sorry for the delay. Yes; Emma's birth:Delaware Birth Records, 1800-1908 Name: Emma H Waller Gender:Female Birth Date:30 Jul 1891 Birth Place:Seaford, Sussex, Delaware Mother:Olevia A Culver Father:James H. Waller 4th child of family, mother Collection and Roll:Register of Births - 4.
Marriage to C. Jester: Delaware Marriage Records, 1806-1933 Return of Marriage. In the State of Delaware, Sussex County Full name of Groom Clarence W. Jester Age 23 Color White ...State Delaware Residence near Seaford, Delaware Occupation Farmer Full name of Bride Emma H. Waller Age 18 Color White ...State Delaware Residence Seaford Name and birthplace of bride's parents James H. Waller & wife Born in Delaware Date of Marriage Dec. 24th 1908 Number of previous marriages of groom 0 of bride 0. Witness my hand this 24th day of December 1908 Signature J. Franklin Bryan Official designation Minister of the Gospel Address Oak Grove, Delaware. Also book photocopy.
No divorce found.
Emma & J.J. Marr: Not married 1935 (1940 census); married 1938 Wilmington directory. No record found.
Cemetery: parents and sister buried there, as well as many related and unknown Jesters; JJ Marr buried elsewhere with 1st wife. Clarence died in Wilmington (DE death cert.) in a traffic accident and is buried in York PA with his 2d wife. I do not know Emma V. Jester. Do you know who is buried near her?

No, Emma is not related to the death certificate (although the same family: Clarence's stepmother, Charles B.'s 2d wife). It's just that the certificate is so wrong and I don't know why. (She (Janie) could have married a William Edward Jester after the death of Charlie (with whom she shares a stone) but I can't find a William Edward at the right time who is not otherwise married.) If that certificate were posted surely someone would pick up W.E. as Janie's husband rather than Charlie.

Thanks for all your help.

RE: Cyndi
The memorial that Wanda has for my sister in law has nothing but a born-death date and the tomb she is resting in. I am not going to delete my memorial to have to retype everything on one someone else should not have make. I am very sorry, but my family is very upset about this. This other lady did not have permission to do a memorial for Cyndi.

Wanda White
I was wondering why she didn't ask for the transfer before she put all the information on hers. Mine is older by 3 years, so it's not like she couldn't see it. I'm afraid if I transfer it, she will delete.
