|Bio and Links|
Interconnections of families within and between cemeteries fascinate me. Its like a giant puzzle. Each connection leads to another. |
My goal is to document these connections and if possible add short biographies with the help of descendants or other sources.
I want these people to have identities...to be more than just a stone in a cemetery. I want their lives to be more than a dash between birth and death dates.
I do have a special interest in the Civil War especially Iowa, Pennsylvania and Virginia since my roots lie in those states.
Surnames of family interest: Bonnett, King , Pollock, Keller, Harsch, Saffell.
Transferring entries is not a problem as long as I am not closely related.
Always happy to make corrections or additions.

|Rachel Waugh||Memorial Transfer|
My name is Rachel Waugh and I would like to request transfer of William and Elender Payn(e)'s memorials to me. I am their five times great grandaughter and am creating a family tree on this site.
|Ozarkcheryl||Elsie Boarts Koser|
Hello, thanks for the note. In Lorenzo's obituary, Elsie is listed as an adopted daughter. I have read
where Josephus M. Johnson, who was a neighbor of the Crippen's, was probably the Josephus Johnson
who is listed as the father on the birth certificate. But there was also another older Josephus Johnson
who many believed was the father. Either way, if all the dates are right, the mother, Mary, was only
13 at the time of birth of Elsie, which seems to us to have required some kind of legal action of
some kind for underage pregnancy.
I have done some looking for this Josephus Johnson, but have not found much. Do you have information
on him? Are there other sources verifying he is the father?
I tried sending an email but it did not go through.
My name is Rachel Waugh and I am the five times great granddaughter of Leander Ransom and Deidamia Connelly. I would like to request transfer of this memorial to my care so that I may continue to build my family's history on this site. Thank you for the creation of this memorial!
|Jess E. Bromley||martin bromley|
His mother, Charity, died 1/14/1843 and her mother, Deborah, died two days later 1/16/1843.
Martin's step mother was Sabra Hewitt who had seven chrildren with Moses Bromley. I do not see a listing for him in Find a Grave but his
family line going back in America would have been;
Edward, Barton, Bethuel, William, William, Luke
This info is from the copy of ancestry.com for the Bromley's that is posted onlin (Which isn't always right)
I loved reading what your goal is with Find A Grave. I hope to add a little something as well.
I sent this info because I thought you might find it interesting.

I did have the Civil War information on John White, but had never added it to his memorial. It is done now ~ thank you for reminding me! Janet Ward
|Jennifer Sims||Eli Withrow - #90261654|
Dear K L,
Thank you so much for your suggested bio for the memorial of my husband's 2nd great grandfather Eli Withrow. We are in possession of a copy of Eli's Civil War records from the National Archives, but I never thought to include this information at FindAGrave. You made it very easy to add, too, so I thank you for that as well!

|Ray Henry||RE: Lysander Woodward|
I don't think they are the same person.
The following docs that would appear to disqualify our Lysander Woodward as this soldier from IA. The first item documents pension activity from 1899 (a request by the veteran for a copy of his records), by which time our Lysander Woodward had already been dead for nearly 20 years. Note the surname is spelled Woodard on this document.
The second is the IA soldier's index card, again spelling the surname Woodard, but also noting that his original record is filed under Woodard, Sylvester.
Also, since Civil War service was a distinct badge of honor, had our Lysander Woodward been a veteran of that war I believe it would have been included in his resume when he ran for lieutenant governor of Michigan in 1878. There was never any mention of military service included in any description of our Lysander Woodward that I have seen.
The name Lysander Woodward apparently is not as uncommon as one might think. There are a least three born in the same decade; ours, another in New Hampshire, and this one in Iowa.
|Carol Lynn White||RE: Francis Playel|
Thank you for getting back to me.
I was reading the "U.S., Adjutant General Military Records, 1631-1976" and it lists the name, and injury of several men.
Francis' was of his knee, and it said "Severely" Perhaps that's what the SV stands for.
|Lois Branch||John Trisler|
Thank you for the information on John's brother Emanuel. I have added it to John's memorial.
