|Bio and Links|
I am youngest of 9 adopted children by |
Stanley Eugene Disney and Frances Higbee Martin. I am also a twin. She was adopted with me.
I am the unofficial family historian. All the family was interested in finding their biological mother/father and I was far more interested in my [adopted] father's history.
I have been working on the family tree since 2007. I have found 1st cousins to 5th cousins alive and its been great. Looking for Disney, Martin, Miller, and Vansants
I also found my great grandmother at Pioneers Rest Cemetery in Texas through findagrave.com.
I started my husband's family tree 5 years ago and now have over 41,000 relatives identified. I used to laugh at those that had 50,000 on their tree; as I thought it impossible..... NO LONGER!!
I have found many of my husbands family connections here at findagrave. His direct line is Darby, Lundy, Mays, McClurg, Wilson.
When I visit cemeteries I am there to take pictures of family members but always try to also take pictures of anyone located near by to upload to the site in hopes to help others in their research.
If I own an entry on the site that is not a family member, I would be happy to transfer it.
Ancestry DNA Testing Discovery
We were contacted by a 3rd cousin of my husbands thru the DNA testing on ancestry.com and she was looking for information on GGGrandmother Susan "Gangy" . She was fairly new at this searching, and was insisting that this Susan Henley was located in Ohio. Susan is also my husband's GGGrandmother.
I worked for a week straight on this Henley branch and kept hitting a brickwall. I finally said that something just doesnt fit....Doesnt make sense. Go back to your Mom (who was fortunately still alive) and ask some questions. Her Mom had had a stroke so her memory wasnt up to par.
She came back with the name of Susan Creswell which was her maiden name. From there I found her in Louisiana and we unearthed a big family secret. What I unearthed was that Susan Creswell was first married to a Jean Desire Ducharme, had 4 children and then ran away in 1901 in the middle of the night with the children. A newspaper article has Mr. Ducharme searching for them. I found Church parish records recording the children's births.
Susan apparently ran away to Mississippi, hid for at least 20 years and then married a John L. Mays and renamed the children to Mays. This is the surname of my husband's mother. Susan then married at least once more that we can verifiy, to a Mr. Henley. There are no marriage records as we think she never divorced her first husband Jean Ducharme. Susan only comes out of hiding in the 1930 census. The rest of the information comes from "family"
Susan Creswell raised my 3rd cousin's mother and my 3'rd cousin was trying to put together a family tree for her mother as a gift.
What we got was finding more family, and unearthing a family secret.

Thanks for transferring Sarah's memorial page in the McCuddy family cemetery to me. She was my direct ancestor and I will add additional information to that page.

Hello! Thank you for the additional information. I have added them as requested. However, I wanted to confirm that Lettie is "son" and Herbert is "daughter." From the names I though it might be the opposite.
Also, I would be happy to transfer management if you would like. Please let me know.
Have a great day and thank you for your work on Find-A-Grave.

I was looking at Wm. T. Hickman and 2nd wife Eleanor/Ellen Cooley and when I read that their bodies were either lost of destroyed, I started wondering if Wm. farmed, they could have been buried on the farm or in a family plot that has since been overrun by grazing animals, their graves fallen into holes created by animals and ground conditions. I'm originally from Frederick Co., MD and out in the country on farms it's not unusual to find people interred on the farm or in a roadside family plot and it's just impossible nowadays to know who is buried where.
Anyway it's just a thought. You're doing a great job and I appreciate your hard work.

Thank you very much for the information that I had a duplicate memorial. The memorial that you said I did a duplicate of had nothing but a name, no years or any info. Pretty much DUH!!
These folks have did many, many thousands of names with no info, sometimes maybe years but no full dates. Info was put in after you send them the info and they even added the parents that I had already done. They want you to send them the information so they can get credit for what they really have not done.
I live here in Lauderdale county, Alabama and work in this neighborhood, I don't try and go do memorials in other states, and NO I am not going to delete my memorial, they live in Missouri and Washington State, what could they possibly do for Lauderdale County, Alabama that the local folks can't?
I've made a lot of complaints to Find A Grave and understand that Ancestry has taken it over, they need to decide if they want DUH memorials or geneaology info and they say they make the last decision on memorials and they will have to be the one to delete mine, cause I'm not.

|Garland||Ambrose Holt 1773-1862|
I have received the following public comments on the information posted on find a grave.
clynndel_1 May Be incorrect: There are 2 families with same names that have caused much confusion. It is said that the Ambrose that married Mary A Roberson Cypert was the grandson of Ambrose ll and this Ambrose is the one who was civil war union soldier who died of measles in Nashville 25 dec 1862. I have found an application for pension filed in 1889 by Mary Cypert for Ambrose Holt's service.

bmcgee1566 Clynndel_1 is correct. Also, I have serious doubts about Nancy Murrah being the mother of all these children since none of them was born before 1795, at which time Ambrose married Mary Ann "Polly" Davis in Stokes County, North Carolina. I suspect that Nancy Murrah died in childbirth within a year after they were married. There never was a Nancy Mary Ann "Polly." They were two different females. One was a Murrah. The second was a Davis.
