I have found so many of my ancestors here and it is a privilege to add to their memorial. The family names I have found in my lineage are:Wilson,Covington,Dalton,Davis, Fourqurean, Chappell,Capel,Thomas,Cox,Hopson,Cayce,Rolston and many more. George Washington the first president of our country I found is my 3rd cousin 8 times removed. So many interesting ancestors that contributed to the development of this great country of ours. We are all connected!We are one! This is quite a journey. We don't know where we are going until we know where we have been.
Hello Cousin! I saw your note on David B. Rolston's memorial, stating he is your 6th great-grandfather. He is one of my fifth great-grandfathers via William (4g), Benjamin (3g), Charles D (2g), and his daughter, Lois G. Rolston Blevins Croson, one of my great-grandmothers.
Unless my reckoning is off, that makes us 4th cousins once removed. Or something like that. Anyway, definitely cousins, so nice to meet you.
One of my reasons for being one Find-A-Grave is to connect with hitherto unknown distant relatives. If you have had your DNA done on 23andMe, I would be very interested in comparing it with mine.
I just found her in Elmwood Cemetery, Springfield, Robertson County, Tennessee. She married Gustavus H. Holman. Her stone just has the years, 1859-1924. I have submitted addition of the links to her parents.
RE: Parent's of Dovey Rolston Hi Linda, Go to Dovey's memorial and click the "Edit" tab at the top left. This will open a list of things to edit. Click "Relationship (Parent and Spouse Links". This will open a page with 4 boxes: Father, Mother, Spouse and Marriage Date (optional). Dovey's husband is already linked, so you only need to request Father and Mother. For Father, copy and paste [or type in] the memorial number for David John Rolston (134250975) and for Mother, copy and paste [or type in] the memorial number for Susannah Matthews (134251272). You can check that you have entered the correct memorial number by clicking any other box on the form: the name of the person will appear next to the memorial number you entered. When I receive notification of your requested edits, I will accept them. You should also get an email notification when the change is made. Rob
I have added memorials for David John Rolston (# 134250975) and his first wife Susannah Matthews (# 134251272) to Find-a-Grave. They are in Shanklins Cemetery (name on F.A.G, also called Rolston-Perry Cemetery) in Todd Co., KY. I have also set up memorials for some of their children who are buried in that cemetery. I did not link Dovey yet, but I sent an email to F.A.G. member Roger Teters, one of Dovey's descendants who provided much helpful information and advice. I would be happy to accept a link request for Dovey from you or Roger. Getting photos of the grave stones is on my To-Do list.
I noticed your note on Dovey Rolston Meacham's memorial (# 51608475). My great-great-great-grandfather Samuel Rolston (# 26751906) is Dovey's brother, according to family history from one of my relatives. Dovey and Samuel's parents were David Rolston and Susanna Matthews (buried in Christian Co., KY, but not on Find A Grave). I am looking for records of the relationship between Samuel, Dovey, Margaret Mary Ralston Hanna (Samuel's sister, Find A Grave # 84330177) and their parents David and Susanna.
I maintain memorials for Samuel's son David (Rolston), grandson Charles (Ralston) and great-grandson Robert. His grandson Orville also is on Find A Grave. Samuel was born in VA in 1800 and came to Christian Co., KY as a boy. He married Elizabeth Fritz and they moved to IL and then to IA.
