Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am visiting my family cemeteries, adding them to findagrave when they aren't listed, adding pictures, finding family listed when I didn't know where they were buried, and requesting pictures when the cemeteries are too far away for me to get to. I am also linking immediate family therebye connecting each tombstone with family.

John and Mary Ferguson
You have John and Mary Ferguson in the wrong cemetery. They are at Hopewell Hebron, down the road from Clinton cemetery. I already put memorials for them at Hopewell Hebron along with photos of their stones.

William Graham 1st earl of montrose
You have the incorrect mother for Patrick Graham-- Janet edmonson was dead in 1506. He was born in 1509-- here is the history from Wikipedia:

William Graham 1st Earl of Montrose married first (on 25 November 1479) Annabel Drummond, one of the five daughters of John Drummond, 1st Lord Drummond, secondly Janet Edmonstone, daughter of Sir Archibald Edmonstone of Duntreath and thirdly Christian Wawane of Seggie, in Fife, the widow of Patrick Haliburton, 5th Lord Haliburton.

By his first wife, Montrose had:
##William Graham, 2nd Earl of Montrose
##Walter Graham, of Little Cairnie.

By his third wife, Montrose had a further son, Patrick Graham of Inchbraikie (grandfather of Bishop George Graham), to which lands Patrick received a charter from his father on 20 June 1513.

William Graham 1st earl of Montrose also had three daughters:
##Helen Graham, who married (dispensation 13 July 1509) Humphrey Colquhoun, Younger of Luss
##Nicolas Graham (a daughter of Graham's second marriage), who married (11 February 1504) John Moray, 6th of Abercairney
##Elizabeth Graham (a daughter of Graham's second marriage), who married (February 1514) Walter Drummond, Master of Drummond, the grandson of John Drummond, 1st Lord Drummond
##Margaret Graham (a daughter of Graham's second marriage), who married (contract 10 July 1510) Sir John Somerville of Cambusnethan
##Jean Graham, who married David Graham, 3rd of Fintry.

Hans Leonhardt Küfer Memorial # 49814595

I just sent you an email with information showing that one of the sons you show for Hans may not be correct - Abraham Kieffer (Memorial # 6290021). I included documentation from immigration documents that Abraham's full name was Abraham Kieffer Jr, which would seem to indicate that Abrahan's father was also named Abraham.

I have contacted the contributor of Abraham's site with the same information.

Just something for you to consider. Thanks for all of your hard work on findagrave!

Heinrich Kauffer
I am a descendant of Heinrich Kauffer. He migrated here in 1739 on the ship Loyal Judith. He founded a German Christian Church and fought in the Revolutionary War. He changed the spelling of his last name to Kifer which is unique because most people spelled it Keifer. I have seen literature that shows name changes from Kauffer to Cooper due to the direct translation to English. It is all very interesting. Here is a link to a lineage chart that shows my great grandparent Scott M Kifer and his brothers with birth years and death years listed. Many people might find their descendants on here, too:

Although I do not know who created that link, I am happy they did! :D

Hahahaha, no edits.
I promise, I really do write. AND I know how to spell, I just sometimes get phonetic with my typing. Cemetery, not Cemetary.

Rebecca and John Smith
JM, I was wondering if you would allow me to use your wonderful pictures of Rebecca and John Smith in my family tree on ancestry. They are my great aunt and uncle.

Also are you related, I would love to exchange and compare information with me.

RE: Find A Grave Correction: Abraham Kieffer‏
See, that I didn't know because I thought on the manifest I only saw 1 Abraham and Casper, and that the Abraham in question was father of Elizabeth, who is in turn the person you messaged me about last. With that said, I believe that all the information about Elizabeth Kieffer Bieber is correct except the spouse, who based on my family history married John Frederick Bieber and together had a daughter who married my 5th great grandfather.
