Bio and Links
I am new to Find A Grave, but have been researching my family for over 30 years. It started with family stories and has led to making contacts with relatives I didn't know existed. I think this is a great way to honor your ancestors and bring families together. I love history and am entering data for the cemeteries that I have information on.

If any of the people I have entered are your relatives, contact me using the edit link and tell me how you are related and I will transfer management to you.

My family comes mostly from Pennsylvania and Maryland. Surnames from my family include: Arrington, Bonebrake, Carson, Cerfass, Cearfoss, Hipsley, Hobbs, Kendall, Parlett, Sehman, Venrick, and Zerfass.

Another project that I am working on is identifying the burial place of those who do not have grave markers in the county that I live in. The families should know where their loved ones are buried.

Memorial #80301508-Roy David Swanson
I just photographed this person's head stone, which he shares with Hazel Welch Duncan. I noticed you published a birthdate of Sep. 17, 1927 on his memorial page. The stone inscription states Sep. 17, 1912. I wanted to make you aware of the discrepancy. Best Regards, April, Monroe County, TN

Burton J. Adee birthdate
Hi Mark, Please change the birthdate for Burton J. Adee (Find A Grave# 92141972). He is shown in the 1870 US Census for his father, Stephen S. Adee, as a son 6 years old, and in the 1880 Census as 16. These 2 entries would make his birthdate about 1863, not 1853. If there is a headstone for him in Elmwood Cemetery or cemetery records, perhaps the month and day can be confirmed; nothing in the censuses show his full date of birth, so I cannot advise you on the month and day of birth.

RE: Terrell Robert Sewell and 2 Marys
Yes, it did. I was really confused and even though I knew she was in the census, I had no clue who her mother was. I figured that he had to have been married before for his wife to be 21 and his oldest child to be 10. Thank you.

LaVada "Vada" Keen, #24504215
Hello, LaVada is my Grand Aunt by marriage. There are notes on her memorial that say they were given by you, and I am confused by them.

LaVada married my Grand Uncle, Henry Reuben Keen. Her given name is LaVada but everyone called her Vada. I do not know her maiden name.

I do not have proof (yet) of her maiden name. Your notation on her memorial says that her father was: A.O. Vaughn, so that would make it Vaughn.

I have other Keen family members that say her maiden name was Barnes.

I am just asking where the info on her memorial came from?

Thank you,
Vicki Moss-Hall
