Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was introduced to Geneology in 1980. I've been addicted ever since.

The TOMBSTONE and LOT pictures I have placed are yours to use for other geneological purposes to include other sites. Let me know if you would like me to go take better ones or if you want to place yours, is fine.

This site is not called "Find-a-Document".
Documents take up what limited space there is for photographs of the PERSON, HOUSE, or tombstone and GRAVE AREA. Please respect the memorials I manage and resist posting copied paperwork or certificates to where the photographs belong.

If you have some corrections, requests, links, additional info., ect., PLEASE use "EDIT" tabs located on upper right side of each memorial for all these things, not this Bio. page or my Email.

I like to place different kinds of flowers, flags, & things on memorials. BRIGHT RED FLOWERS indicate my family, relatives and V.I.P.'s. I won't usually transfer the memorials with RED FLOWERS unless you are a closer relation than myself AND I see you are an experienced, active and dedicated Find-a-Grave member. Thank you for your time and any help or corrections you can send!!!! !

Thomas P Hoar
Hi Todd,

How did you arrive at the death date and age at the time of death for Thomas P Hoar? I have been unable to find any death records. Also, how did you arrive at the death date and age for his wife, Elizabeth? I have a very different record for his wife. Thanks, Susie 47928603

Mother of Samuel Stinemetz, 1826-1867
Todd -

Thanks for your contributions to Find A Grave. They have been helpful to me. I'm interested in the Gruber family of Williamsport, MD. I've recently been looking at the entries for Mary S. Gruber Stinemetz, and Sarah Ann Steinmetz, both of whom are buried at the Pittsburg and Peystone Quarry near Pinesburg, MD. You maintain those entries. There's something that doesn't make sense to me.

From looking at these two entries, it's clear that Henry Stinemetz, 1792-1895, was married twice: first to Elizabeth Spickler, 1795-1830, and second, Mary S. Gruber, 1801-1837. He outlived both of them by many years. Here's my problem:

In the Find A Grave entry for Mary S. Gruber Stinemetz, Samuel Stinemetz, 1826-1867, is listed as a child of Mary and Henry. In the entry for Sarah Ann Stinemetz, a child of Henry and Elizabeth, Samuel is listed as a half-sib, which would also make him a child of Henry and Mary. The entries are consistent, but since Elizabeth didn't die until 1830, Henry would have been still married to Elizabeth when Samuel was born in 1826, not to Mary. so, I think Elizabeth Spickler must have been Samuel's mother, bringing the total number of children of Henry's first marriage to six, and reducing the number of children of the second to two. Mary's other two children were born in 1831 and 1836, so she must have married Henry fairly soon after Elizabeth's 1830 death and died herself soon after the birth of the second child. Please let me know if you agree. Perhaps we can find confirmation in the 1830 and 1840 censuses. I'd be interested in any evidence you have for these families, in any case.

The only way I can see that Samuel could have been Mary's child is if she was married to someone else before Henry, and brought Samuel to the marriage and he was subsequently adopted by Henry. In that case, Samuel would have been a half-sib of Mary's children with Henry, but no relation at all to Henry's children with Elizabeth. My other scenario fits your data better.

Incidentally, I'm wondering if the name of that graveyard is actually Pittsburg and Keystone Quarry. In the copy of the Washington County Cemeteries book at the Western Maryland Room of the Washington County Free Library, someone has crossed out the P and written in K. That would make more sense. I think I know where that graveyard is and I'd love to go find it someday.

John Shannon Family pictures
I am wondering where you got the family pictures of John Shannon of Chico, CA. He was my great-great grandfather. His daughter Minnie Shannon was my grandfather's mother. His father was James Alfred Tyler. My grandfather's name was John Archie Tyler born 1901. You listed Ellene Tyler, but did not list the rest of the family, from oldest to youngest; Walter, (Ellene you listed), Alice, Alfreda (Freda), George, Ruth, and the youngest my grandfather John Archie Tyler. Oddly, on the 1900 census, my great grandfather's name is listed as Laurence, but is James Alfred Tyler on the 1910 census.

Thank you so much for putting this information up and for the pictures of my great-grandmother, and her family.

Thank you so much for transferring to me. My Dad died when I was 5 so I have very few memories. I lived with his sister in Ohio in 1963 and 64 so I saw his grave once. Findagrave has been a great help to me. It is nice to visit the site and see his headstone.

Benjamin Dean b. 1760
I think you are right. I think that the Benjamin Dean who was in the Revolutionary War was born in 1760 and was the son of Moses Dean, brother of Benjamin b. 1739.

There is a Benjamin Dean b.1760 in Barnumtown Cemetery, Monkton, Vermont. (Find A Grave Memorial# 45637426). Lots of Deans buried in Barnumtown Cemetery

From " Monkton History" (1882)(
"Ashbel Dean, from New Jersey, came with his brother, Benjamin, to this town just after the war of the Revolution, where he had served six years. He located on the "old stage road" in Barnumtown, which ran near and parallel with road 46. Ashbel was at the battle of Eutaw Springs, Yorktown, and others, an artillery-man, and had his gun taken and retaken several times, though it finally remained with the Americans. He married a daughter of Jehiel Barnum, had a family of nine children, four of whom are now living [as of 1882]. Arzah C., the eldest, is now nearly eighty-six years of age, having been born February 16, 1796. The house occupied by T. N. Dean is the oldest in the village, if not the town. It was built by Capt. Kendrick."

Also, an application for membership to the Sons of the American Revolution by one Leon W. Dean in 1929 quotes the above citation and adds (in the applicant's own handwriting), "I understand that Ashbel was one of three brothers, all of whom, together with their father, saw service in the Revolution, and all of whom were under twenty at the time." The three sons would have been Ezra, Ashbel, and Benjamin (b. 1760), and the father would have been Moses.

A National Archives Microfilm (Publication M246, Roll 122, "Continental Troops Jacket Nos. 74-99, "Independent Companies of Artificers 1777-78, Artificers etc. employed by General Clinton at Forts Clinton and Montgomery" lists Ashbel Dean, Esra Dean, and Moses Dean as "privets", and a Richard Dean (not sure if he is related) as Drummer.

Isaac Shannon, Sr.
My mother was a Shannon. In her line I can document back to my gr gr gr grandfather.(John 1783 Chambersburg PA-1855 Richland Belmont OH). There is a strong possibility that his father was John Shannon (m Agnes Dennison) and his father Samuel Shannon (m Ann unknown)

I have been holding onto info on Isaac Shannon for quite some time hoping that I might find a connection sometime BECAUSE he and my line were all on the Ohio Tax List in Jefferson Co OH in the same years and in the same twp (Shortcreek 1807,8,9,10)
. Seems that both the Isaac Shannon family and my line were in Washington Co PA.

There is a good family tree for Isaac, Sr.(Shannon-Scott Master Tree)by 'Shammy' on and also from ancestry the Endsley-Shannon Family Connection by Nathan Clark Shannon.

I am certainly willing to share my information with anyone who believes that they see a connection.
