|Bio and Links|
|Genealogy has been a serious business for me since I was in grade school. I documented and discovered that my 3rd great-grandmother Laura A. (WHITMARSH) MILLER's parents Horace WHITMARSH & Clarissa Mitchell (WARNER) WHITMARSH were both Mayflower descendants. I tracked the surname GILMORE back to Capt. James GILMORE of Rockbridge Co, Virginia. (Thanks to the late Shelby GILMORE for his ground breaking research in the 1960-70s.) Turns out that he was present at the Battle of Yorktown where poor Cornwallis discovered that yes he would be famous but no not for something to land him in to #10 Downing Street. Other discoveres include proving Mennonite ancestry via the BINKLEY orig BINGELLI and STAUFFER lines. |
Corrections & Questions: Use the S.A.C. for corrections and please differentiate facts from from suppositions and might be for the benefit of other researchers. Also if it's a question that I don't have an instant answer for that requires further research remember that the facts are the foundation for the solution. Correction and question e-mails should NOT be deletion requests as those requesting deletions are considered a nuisance and are treated accordingly. Include your e-mail address in the S.A.C. and you must have your findagrave.com messages visible to the public. If you are requesting links include the findagrave code number after each person.
Transfers: Most of the the virtual graves I manage are blood kin in some way. I don't transfer direct ancestors or very close relatives of my grandparents. For others that can happen if you are more closely related than me.
First: leave some kind of flower on the virtual grave in question. Use the correct e-mail (NOT a message on my profile) that includes your e-mail address (required) and tell me how you are related. If the person is someone I'm not related to I usually transfer these type immediately. (Unless you ask if you have other relatives buried in the same cemetery. In that case I might need that virtual grave as a reference point for easy access because non-relatives will not be in my internal database.) I probably know very little about a non-relative so someone who is a relative should manage them.
Second: If I am related but you are a closer relative to that person --- I will look at my internal database --- I may have questions for you! I may have active research that I conducting on that person and/or his/her near relatives. So just because I don't transfer a relative immediately doesn't mean no if I don't say no. Before I transfer a relative I back check my internal database to make sure what I have there matches findagrave. If you send in the "correction" additional facts, crosslinks to parents or other updated data I need to fix BOTH areas. I have also been known to transfer a group of graves for the same family. If I am doing a group transfer I also back check each cemetery to see if there are other relatives of the person who don't have virtual memorials but should. All of this takes TIME which is a precious commodity and when it is done it should be done right the first time.
The type of transfers I absolutely will not do are any type of these three:
#1 Any of my direct ancestors and other close relatives of my grandparents.
#2 To people who are bulk collectors of virtual graves that do not transfer outside of guidelines.
#3 To people who have harassed others on findagrave.
These are direct line known surnames to my 7th great-grandparents. Note that on those from Norge I am trying to use "farm" names because surnames were not generally required by law till about 1900 in Norge. American & Canadian states/provinces are abbreviated in all caps. Other countries are spelled out preferably in that nation's first language. When you see a surname repeated that is because it is actually more than one unrelated surnames with the the surname coming closest to this current time listed first. Several of these families can be accessed through my multiple virtual cemeteries. Most of these, but not all, are public:
SPECIAL NOTES CONCERNING PARTICULAR AREAS:
Missouri: Mercer County, Lindley and Harrison Twsps and also the neighboring townships of Clay Twsp in Harrison County and Hamilton Twsp in Decatur Co, Iowa: I do have a particular interest and expertise in this area as four of my great-grandparents were from this area. If you need help in this area ask. What I don't know I most likely know who you need to talk to.
Maine: Hancock County, Swan's Island: Make sure you see http://www.swansisland.org/cemetery.htm for any virtual grave in this area that I either entered and/or left a candle on. This is the source for all of the information, including links to parents, gravestone photographs or documentation of the lack of one. If the person in question had the surname JOYCE or married one then they either were themselves or married a direct descendant of the SAMSON, STANDISH, and ALDEN families.

I just found Mary. I am the great great granddaughter of Margaret Jane Lloyd Miller Chrysler. I thought she only had one sister, Matilda and a brother, James. It appears there were 7 children (6 siblings to Mary). I am searching for any information on the Lloyd family. I have a letter that Mary wrote to my Margaret and a letter written to Margaret from Matilda and one from Erasmus, their father. I am willing to share those letters with other family members. Margaret's 1st husband was Harvey P Miller. The family (all branches) have always said he was shot by Jessie James when they lived in Tipton, Missouri and he pasted up to 90 days later from the wound. We have people in our Miller group that are trying to find out what really happened the day Harvey P was shot. Margaret was there along with my great grandfather, Henry Miller but he was only 4 years old. I was thinking that Margaret probably wrote to someone in her family and told them what happened that day. Also either Mary or Matilda wrote in a letter to Margaret that they had received the picture of her husband (2nd husband) Matthias Chrysler and we don't have a picture of him. He was also the uncle of my great grandmother, Julia Wade Miller...wife to Henry Albert, brother to Julia's mother. Do you have any information of the Lloyd family?

I do not have a daughter Sarah Jane Slover with Aaron and Nancy Slover. And you will have to ask the contributor that added memorial #75908491. All I can tell you I have no documents that Arron Slover had a daughter Sarah Jane Slover.
Susie: I think this link #75908491 needs to be deleted as Sarah Jane (SLOVER) FOUST (1852-1899) is actually an unnecessary duplicate of Elizabeth Jane (SLOVER) FOUST (1832-1899). Elizabeth's parents Aaron Jr. & Nancy (BURTON) SLOVER had no daughter named Sarah according to the census records. What do you think?
|Jimmy M. Sisson||John PURCHAS, Memorial #70139967|
If John PURCHAS wrote his Will on 27 Mar 1585, " a mere nine days after the burial of his wife Margaret"; why is wife Margaret left goods and money in his Will?

|Richard Rieck||William Knapp grave location|
According to a June 6, 1849,letter written by his wife, Harriett, William Knapp died of cholera on May 5, 1849 in Independence, Missouri while en route to California. According to the letter he was buried there in the "village Church yard" the same day his company (wagon train) departed for the gold fields.
