Mayflower Connection: I descend from the following |
Degory Priest, Francis Eaton, John Alden,Priscilla Mullins, Myles Standish, Peter Brown, Francis Cooke, George Soule, Isaac Allerton, Richard Warren, through my father, Member 27436, Society of Mayflower Descendants.
My uncle, Carl Glee Smith Jr is memorialized at Manila American Cemetery and Memorial in the Philippines. His life was lost during Typhoon Cobra, December 18, 1944 when three ships went down, USS Hull, USS Monaghan and his ship the USS Spence. I have attempted to leave notes at each of the memorials for the 793 sailors who lost their lives that day. I also see many other memorials that no one has left flowers or honored them, I am also honoring those as I have time. There are over 44,033 memorials at that cemetery. May God bless the thousands of families who suffered loss during WW II.
I am attempting to link many of Smith burials in an effort to help those who are just starting their family search venture. Descending from four Smith branches is a challenge. At the present time, I am linking Smiths from several states from Vermont, New York,Ohio to Illinois, Nebraska and Kansas. From Virginia through Kentucky to Arkansas. From Georgia, Arkansas to Texas.
In addition, I am documenting my Jones from New Hampshire, through Ohio, Illinois to Nebraska.
A few of my family lines are Blatherwick, Farrow, Gilbert, Wood, Kelsey, Evans, Blake, Cady, Watkins, Stewart, McCormick, Jones, Stiles, McDermott, Hoffman, Smith, Black, Brazle, Roth, Martin, Cole, Morgan, Oswalt
If you use my personal photos, please give me credit for the photo, this includes family photos posted as well as cemetery photos. Thank you.
I will consifer transferring memorials that are your direct family, but not my family line. I am not into numbers and am happy to share my work. I love to link family members and to know a bit about the person.

Good evening, I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our "Old Soldier that had ties to Vermont. Herman E. Kelsey is one such soldier.I am asking if I may use the photo you contributed to his Find A Grave Memorial, to post on the Vermont Civil War site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org) You would receive credit for this,
Thank you for your consideration.
|Lily Virdell||John Ginger memorial#6777164|
Dear Vickye, I have done the math several times and if John Ginger memorial#6777164 died Nov. 1, 1879 aged 81 yrs, 10 months and 6 days (as is reported on his tombstone inscription) his birthdate would be Dec. 27, 1797. Not Dec. 26, 1789 as it currently states on his memorial. I have sent an edit to correct this. This brings his birthdate much closer to the probability that he is the son of Henry Ginger Sr. memorial#15618446 and Chauncey Jane (Luster) Ginger memorial#124205757
What do you think about this? You are probably much more knowledgeable about the Gingers of Indiana than I am. If you agree, please let me know and I will sent edits linking them.
Thanks, as always for all you do. Gratefully,Lily

Are you sure you have the correct cemetery for John? McHenry County Memorial Park in Woodstock, IL was not established until 1939 and there is no record of a John Kelsey who died in 1928.

Good afternoon Ms. Vickye. I have a question in regards to Alonzo Jaggers. Could you e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I am wondering if he is the son of Hiram & Josephine McCubbin Jaggers. There just seems to be so many empty years in between the children that it made me question the kinship to both parents. Thank You

Thank you for the transfers Vicki!
Thanks so much, Vickye, for posting the pictures of Anna Perkins Adams' grave in Monmouth. You said you also have pictures of a Margaret Adams' grave but I do not have a Margaret in my tree.
