|Bio and Links|
I have been a very generous person when it comes to sharing my family history and my photo's. I have noticed as well as others have brought it to my attention, that there are a few people that will copy the photo's and/or stories and post as if they had contributed them rather than give the person credit from where they got it!This includes duplicating memorials as well as adding to their trees on Ancestry.com.. Let this be notice that I will be contacting Find A Grave And Ancestry to have all removed that has not given me credit for my hard work that I have spent years doing as I was one of the few that was even doing research on the names in my family!It is common courtesy to ask permission to use a photo from the owner or original contributor, and only if you give that person credit for their work!!!!!|
************ I started researching my genealogy in 1980 and got hooked. I took classes, and was taught by the best. The rest is history! I enjoy and feel such peace wandering through cemeteries. I have a lot of information. I hope it will help to make it easier for those of you that are researching. Please feel free to submit any corrections to me that I may make in error. I, like so many others, found this sight by accident. I was in such pain over the loss of my mother. FAG has been my source of comfort from so many caring and loving people that I now call friends and my angels. I would like to thank everyone that has visited and left flowers and a note for my family, it has truly brought such comfort to me. I have read about a lot of wonderful people and hope that I too have brought comfort to there family as well.
I would like to honor and give thanks to everyone that goes from cemetery to cemetery and or transcribes cemetery records, graves and/or takes pictures. Your hard work and generosity does not in any way go unnoticed to anyone researching. You are truly angels on earth to a genealogist. Keep up the good work! God Bless To Everyone!
I want to thank everyone that visits my family and leaves tokens and notes. Sometimes, I get so overwhelmed and behind on my Thank You's, but please know that they do not go unnoticed. From the bottom of my heart & soul I am touched with each one. Love To All & God Bless!
Copied from another member's site:
I think it is a real shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.
With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them.

|TLH||Maggie Shropshire photo request|
Grove Hill Cemetery does not provide Findagrave volunteers burial locations to fill requests.
Please contact Grove Hill cemetery and get the burial location for your request: 214-381-7118
There are over 136 photo requests at this cemetery because the office will not provide the volunteers with locations but will provide a location to a family member if you call and ask for it.

Memorial 9179519 is the memorial for John Albert McClenaghans father. Someone has written a very nice story about the family. So far I have tried to get in touch with the creator of this memorial with no response yet.
|Seanna Nix||RE: # 110192685 Issac Elam|
I am sorry I got some messages confused. John And Blanche had only two children that we are aware of Frances and Martha. Both born in Dallas, Frances is July 21, 1913 and Martha is Feb 29 1916. They had a step sister or possible half sister named Roberta that sometimes used the last name McClanahan, as well as VonPhress?
|Seanna Nix||RE: # 110192685 Issac Elam|
I have the obituary for him from the Dallas morning news dated October 23, 1918. it says " The body of James A McClanaghan,28 years old who died at El Paso last Saturday, was received in Dallas last night and funeral service will be held in the Smith Chapel at 11 O'clock this morning. Burial will be in Pleasant Mound Cemetery. Mr. Clanaghan formerly lived in Dallas". ( here they have his age incorrect)
So this is where the confusion is. The dates are adding up the timeline is adding up, the obits are matching up, but why is the paper saying James?
If this is a coincidence that this is another man this is one heck of a coincidence.
In the El Paso Herald for the date of October 21,1918 under the Civilian Dead Title is "J.A McClenaghan at a hospital"
His death certificate also says James A McClenaghan Oct 19 1918, Street car conductor for El Paso Electric Railway. Birthplace, Seneca Kansas, no father or mother listed or wife. Now I have to say this is actually his because his draft enlistment card states ElPAso and Blanche and also that he works for the El Paso Electric Railway.
I would love to send you documents to take a look at. Would you care to email me at my personal email? Zbarxfarm@yahoo.com.
|Seanna Nix||RE: # 110192685 Issac Elam|
Yes that is the Elam I am referring too :)
Martha Pratt is my grandmothers grandmother so my 4 time great grandmother? My Grandmother is Frances McClenaghan Nix. Her mother is Blanch Slagle daughter of Martha Pratt and WG Slagle. I have the Dallas Morning News Obit for Martha. Wow this is so neat, so we are distant relatives? Are you on Ancestry.com as well? I would love to share notes. As mentioned before I am very very new to this.What we are having so much trouble with is nailing down my great grandfather, Blanch Slagle's 2nd husband. So far we have three aliases for him
John Albert McClenaghan James A McClenaghan and JA McClanahan. Any suggestions or tips or answers are certainly welcome! Thank you so very much :)
|Seanna Nix||# 110192685 Issac Elam|
I am pretty new to Find a Grave and was looking up ancestors. Issac Elam is my great great great grandfather. I am pretty sure well 100% sure his spouse is Margaret Lanham. Listed on here are children of his but the only child of him and Margaret that I know if is Martha A "Addie" Lanham Elam. So my question is, am I looking at the wrong Issac Elam? or did they in fact have more children? Thank you for any help :)

Dear Linda McAnally,
A few weeks ago I requested data from you concerning Thomas Lanham(1757) said to be buried at Ft. Boonesbourgh, Ky.
Again, I ask, do you have pictures of the grave site?
Can you obtain pictures or can I contact someone that would have pictures of Thomas and Patience Sappington Lanham grave sites?
Where is this particular grave site? Is it on the grounds of Ft. Boones. or nearby?
I am in the process of updating our book concerning the LANHAM's. I will be more than pleased to obtain the above info and of course by-line you and your efforts.
If you would like to talk by phone please feel free to ring me at 256-325-3775. Feel free to call collect.
Clifford W. Lanham
|Diane L. Martenet||Benjamin Bethurum|
I found on Ancestry.com that Benjamin was born in Northern Ireland, died Rockcastle KY, Married Mary Jane Porter in 1776/77 in Penn. USA.
This is a Gr+ Grandfather.
Glad you brought him to my attention.
|Maggie||RE: Morehead Cemetery|
Hi Linda, I have linked Martha to her parents, thank you for the request. I like family to be linked on their memorials. Thanks, Maggie

Benjamin is not actually at Pleasant Mound. He has a marker along with three other individuals. There is no one in these graves. It was placed there as a memorial. It is rumored that when they widened Hwy 175 they relocated the graves at the Elam cemetery to other cemeteries. The where abouts of Benjamin is in question even though he has a marker at Pleasant Mound Public cemetery he is not interred there.
