I now live in Gainesville, FL in a retirement community associated with the University of Florida. Since 1973 family history research has been more than a hobby - it has been a passion.
I will gladly transfer any memorial not included in my research. If you see changes, corrections, or wish to add additional information, please use the edit tab to request these changes. If your information contradicts my research, please forward sources so I can correct research errors.
Please feel free to use my photographs for genealogy programs, however, I would prefer to upload my own photographs for Find A Grave memorials.
Most all of my memorials originate from tombstone pictures or credible burial records. Obituaries can prove inaccurate and I try to confirm them first.
My father's families: George: Blackmun, Briggs, Gardiner, Hardy, Kennedy (Canada), Lilley, McCallum, Paxton, Tindall, Thompson (England), Watson, and Winch.
My mother's Families: Wilson: Andre, Blessing, Cochran, Cross, Fiscus, Jackson, McKinstry, Ross, Sober, and Stephens.
RE: Harold Wilson Thank you Tom for your help. My Dad was born in Apollo as well. I know my Dad talked about his uncle Harold and Aunt Hazel, Hazel lived to 95. He visited and kept in touch for many years. He also kept in touch and had family reunions with his cousins. So it just doesn't seem to be right that my Harold died in 1926. My Dad was born in 1917, but he talked about about Harold as tho he knew him when my Dad was much older, not only 9 years old. And you're right the only info on a Harold Wilson are the two census and the death certificate and a marriage license. I found the same things but filed them away. I'll take a closer look when I have some time. Thanks again Jill
RE: Harold Wilson Tom, I do have that death certificate, I was never sure if it was the Harold that was my great uncle. I was pretty sure my Dad knew his Uncle Harold pretty well by the way he used to talk about him. That's why I'm not sure it's the same one since yours died in 1926. It seems if my Dad knew Harold he may not have died in 1926. My Harold married my great aunt Hazel E. Burns from Apollo. They had children, Edward, Betty, Paul and John Francis and Nancy, my Dad's first cousins. Did your Harold have those children? Thanks again for your help with this. Were you from Apollo? Jill
Harold Wilson Hi, Got your suggest a correction and wondering where you came by the info you submitted. Although I cannot find the death date on my great uncle I believe he did not die in 1926. Do you have any links to records you can share? I've been looking for more info on him and haven't found anything. Thanks Jill

You sent me edits, which I approved, to add maiden name, date of birth, place of birth, and place of death for Cynthia Hurlbut (#108068660). You say she was born May 26, 1801 in New London, CT. According to her age at death, she should have been born in either January or Febuary 1801.
There's another memorial (#84708182) for a Cynthia Harris (wife of Austin) buried in New London, CT who was born May 26, 1801, the same date. Might you have the two mixed up?
Alma Winch Hewitt #127920919 You added this Record added: Apr 13, 2014 and created Find A Grave Memorial# 127920919, Along with a photo. I had already made memorial #???? for this person in July 2013. In this case, I will delete my memorial, because it has less information on it. DO NOT DELETE YOUR MEMORIAL. thanks
