Bio Photo 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.

Dear Vickye, I requested a photograph of this person and the volunteer said they went to the office and that they found no record of her being buried there. You might want to consider changing her burial to unknown. Thank you

Bart Meridth (Wheatley Cem)

I photographed some headstones in Wheatley, including the Meridth family. The spelling on all the FindaGrave memorials are Meridith, but all the headstones of the family are spelled "Meridth" and not Meridith. Meridith is what several sources who, but Meridth is a rare but actual last name found elsewhere in Findagrave, and I find it hard to believe that there would be spelling errors on the parents' AND the two children's headstones, especially when they all died many years apart, so I have suggested thru the Edit tab that their names be changed to Meridth.

Emil and Emma Vogt
Hi Vickye. I noticed that you put a cross on Rev. Vogt's memorial page and flowers on Emma Vogt's memorial page. Are you related? My mom was the only child of their daughter, Margaret Vogt Strunk, who died 2 weeks after giving birth to my mother. If you are related, I would love to share this with my mom. Regardless of whether or not you are related, I want to thank you for honoring the great-grandparents I never knew.

I spent last week in West Rhodes Creek Cemetery in Cecilia, kY. I have two stones which I cannot figure to whom they might belong. One has the above info, however I cannot make out the last name, but it ends in "ford." If I send you the photos, do you think you might be able to help me identify to whom they belong? Any help is appreciated. Diane

RE: Green Smith
His name as far as I know, was Green Smith Born 1871 in Kentucky, died in Louisville, but was taken back to Liberty where he lived. My mom seems to recall seeing a news paper article that he was murdered in a hotel in louisville. His wife was Mary Dowdy born 1879 in TN and died in front of my grandmother (Matilda Katherine Smith Young) in 1924. Any help would be most appreciated.

Green Smith & Mary Dowdy
I am hoping there is someone out there who can help me, I was hoping to get pictures of the two individuals above. I started my search back in 2000 for my grandmother, those are her parents. Well my grandmother passed away, and now I continue for my mother, I am hoping to get her these photos before she has full stage dementia like her mother. If anyone can please help me it would be most appreciated, and maybe with a little help, I can finally get my family the answers we have been searching to find for so many years.

Thank you
