|Brian Gallagher||RE: Head Family Cem.|
I would contact the land owner but need to find where he is located. Can you give me directions? Christmas Hill is the name of Route 655. When we went to an enhanced 9-1-1 system, all routes got names. Thanks.
|Jack Davison||RE: Col Bob Jones|
I can just imagine the telephone ringing at a family gathering with a call for "Dr. Jones." "Which Dr. Jones?"
That is quite an enconium to the first Dr. John Bolling Jones. From your description I make him your great uncle. My mother's side of our family is spread similarly across generations, I have many second cousins but only one first cousin other than removes. He was the son of my father's brother. That side is less widely spread. My brother and I are having a time separating the maternal threads. He is the one developing genealogical expertise.
|Jack Davison||Col "Mouse" Jones|
The death notice posted on our class web site, my primary source, says that he is the son of John Bolling Jones III; however the dates for the latter (1928) and John Bolling Jones Jr suggesst that John Jr is the fsther and John III the brother, as our linksorganize them. Please let mr know if you concour. I intend to amend Mouse's bio accordingly.
|Jack Davison||RE: Col. Bob Jones|
These memorials are my small service to those who hsve been in the most important part of my life apart from my own family, not only those who have answered their last call, but for those they leave behind.
So, Bob was your cousin? I met him when he and I both reported for our physicals prior to admission and we were in neighboring rooms those two or three days. Did you know the name by which his classmates know him? Slthough we called him "Mouse" he hsd the roar of a lion, essential for a cox as was his size. I saw him last as parade commander of a Friday evening tattoo at the 8th and I street Marine Barracks, where his "command voice was also much in evidence. I thought "Mouse too informal for his memorial, but after all "Brute" Krulak's is on his memorial.
Jis survivors include a brother, Dr. Lealis Hale in Florida. As a cousin can you enlighten me on the family?
Warm regards, Jack
|Jack Davison||RE: Frances I.|
Thsnks very much. I hsve linked Bob to hida mother and see that you have linked his brother to their mother since I first wrote. That ties up any loose threads for the family, I believe. I do like to ghave my classmates' memorials and those of their families neatly tied off.

|Dick Felts||Johann Stephen Trenkel|
You've posted a significant amount of information about Johann Stephen Trenkel and his ancestors, including a comment that recent information that shows him as the son of Jacob Trenkel. I've positively traced my wife's ancestors back to Johann Stephen and would very much like to know what sources you've found for his connection to Jacob. You can contact me directly at rjfelts"at"msn"dot"com.
|Martha Rand Coke Hix||RE: Ruth (Jamerson) Bolling's parents|
Trink, I just saw your message from last September! So nice to "hear" from you. As for Aunt Ruth Jamerson Bolling's parents, I would have sworn I found their graves in the same cemetery as Ruth. It's been years since my one visit there, so I should be careful with my swearin... FYI, my aunt Lois and her husband had been to the cemetery, year before that, and said they'd found her grandparents. The best way to solve this is to make another trip, and when I'm next in that "neighborhood" (I live in the Hill Country), I will stop by. Will let me know... In the meantime, if you find that Abigail and Dave are somewhere else, would appreciate your letting me know by email, IBHixup@yahoo.com.
Thanks and all the best, Martha
|Donna Wilmarth||Lucy and Thomas Edmunds|
I see that you are the person maintaining the Find A Grave memorials for both Lucy and Thomas Edmunds. I hope that you are either a relative or know how I can get in contact with one of their relatives.
I recently "won" a box of genealogy information. In this box was a 50th Anniversary book for Lucy and Thomas. It also has a lot of information on their 60th Anniversary, including many pictures.
I was hoping to get this book back to the family.
Please let me know if there is someone that would like to get this book back.
|Barbara Bland||Theodorick Bland photo|
Hey Trink. Yes, this photo belongs to the Maryland judge and not to the Col. (Dr.) Theodorick. Well intentioned people keep posting it, and we have it removed, then someone else posts it, and so on, lol. I think I've already requested this person to remove it, but will double check. We have the same problem with the portrait of Elizabeth (?) Randolph (wife of Peyton Randolph) being posted to Elizabeth (Randolph) Bland. Oh well. Hugs, and it's good to hear from you. Barbara
