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.

RE: Susanna Broyles Cornelius Memorial
Not a problem at all. I was lucky I even found it because I've walked by that little piece of stone a dozen times or better lately and never even saw it. I just wish I could have found more of the pieces . It's sad that there's only that little bit left. Not sure if the family means something to you or if you are related, but I also found an Evelyn Cornelius today just off to the left of Susanna and Wm. today. An infant with just a small stone that didn't say anything about her parents.

Hi,
From looking at the memorial, it looks like my mother got her information right off the stone.

Blessings, Christine (Beverly's daughter)

Susanna Cornelius Davis Cemetery
Hi Vickye,

I found Susanna's stone today. What was left of it anyway. Problem is that the stone was evidently broken into at least a few pieces. I found a piece with most of her info. There's nothing of the first name on it, BUT you can clearly read Cornelius, Aug. 18, 1851 and enough of Dec. 1927 to make it out. And that's all. I went through the cemetery repeatedly and then did a complete circuit of the outside checking all the dump sites for old flowers and such checking for more bits of the stone and I just couldn't find it. The bit of stone I found was lying face down between William and one other Cornelius but there isn't even a base or any sign of disturbance where I found it to tell me whether the stone was actually there or if someone just found the piece and set it by the others with the same surname. Just wanted to let you know the deal before I posted the pic.

Vickye,

Thank you so much for the transfers! You didn't have to do that. I'm just trying to get them all connected to their family members. I will take good care of them! Thanks for all your work!
