|Maggie||RE: John O'Neill|
Jean, thank you for responding so quickly,
Added by Maggie on Jul 05, 2015 10:38 AM
Jean, thank you very much for posting information on John O'Neill. In 2006 you posted that John O'Neill was born in Derry and immigrated in 1867. May I ask you if you still have where you found this information so that I can look for it. Even though the Oklahoma History book states he was born in Tyrone, I think your original posting was correct. I believe Tyrone and Derry are only miles from each other and borders have changed. John O'Neill's sister Mary O'Neill was my great grandmother.
Also thank you for posting Peter McSweegan; He was John O'Neill's nephew.
I do not wish to take this over or have anything changed, just looking for the Derry/immigration year for John for my family research. Thank you. (Hope i'm doing this right and not causing any inconvenience)

|Sam English||RE: Update Silas English Memorial|
Not the same person Jean. Sarah Elizabeth English would have been a niece to Silas and Elizabeth. Glad you're staying afloat over there. Had great time in Kentucky; hope you have a great summer.
|Sam English||Update Silas English Memorial|
Jean.....I visited the English/Miller Cemetery again over the Memorial Day weekend. A photo posted by a contributor was supposed to be the foot stone of Silas' grave. I questioned that and double checked and it is not. It is the foot stone of Sarah Elizabeth English. I contacted the contributor and I think she will remove the photo, she's a very nice lady and told me last year she would remove it if I thought she should. After further consideration, I'm not even sure that I believe Silas is buried there. He died in 1842 about 22 years before his wife and it's quite possible that he was buried "down on the farm" before this cemetery was created. But he could be there in an unmarked grave too. Just thought I'd let you know that we do not have any conclusive evidence of the site of Silas' grave. Thanks.

I wish I could help you. So far I haven't discovered a connection but if I do I will keep you in mind.
|KDQ||RE: Sarah Lee English and Cora Lee Bennett English|
I am so glad.
I have been working mostly on Find A Grave in my spare time lately. I decided to actually work on my trees in Ancestry.com since I had been neglecting them. That's how I ran across your Find A Grave for Cora and the other one set up in Texas.
I am related to you. We are first cousins 2X removed. My great grandmother was Marion Ruth English.
I have been working on Cora Bennett's lineage for the past year and a half (off and on). Her mother was given as Mary Ann King with King being the maiden name in many family trees. However, I think this may not be the case. I believe that Mary Ann married a King. It is possible that Mary Ann's maiden name was Hamilton. I haven't followed her thread in our tapestry as far as I need to yet.
I am glad you are watching over Stephen and Cora.

|Kelcey Edwards||Louisa J Dameron|
Hi Jean, my great grandmother was an English, and my grandmother passed down our family tree to me. I was researching Louisa J Dameron when I came across your contribution to this site, which I thought was amazing, but according to my records, it says that she was Cherokee, do you know of this or have any proof?
|Mike & Bushy Hartman||Diamond family in Lafayette forgot memorial number|

Are you a member of the family presently managing this family tomb? I was speaking to Emily, a member of Save Our Cemeteries, about your family tomb and the panel laying on the ground now used as a passage way causing great wear to the panel. Emily told me this is the oldest panel in the cemetery to her knowledge. Emily would like to speak to someone about moving the panel from the ground to the side/back of the tomb.
If you wish to speak with Emily please email me and I will give you her email and you can contact her directly.
About the tomb, I have added obits to some of the members but could not get Find A Grave to post them even though they do fall within the required guidelines so I have put them as captions under my photos.
Have a great day.
|Ruth Aguilar||Rebecca Maude Duncan|
Good Morning, Jean,
I just took the liberty of posting Rebecca's photo on your memorial for her. I hope that is OK. When I took the photo out from behind the glass so I could scan it I found a neat hand written message in old ink that gave the info I have also put under the photo. The photo belonged to my great, great grandfather, Wm McGill Duncan and Rebecca was his cousin. It was a thrill to find it! I have finished copying Grandpa Duncan's Civil War story from his notes and would be happy to send it if I could find your email. as always, Ruth
