Bio and Links
I am new to Find A Grave, but have been researching my family for over 30 years. It started with family stories and has led to making contacts with relatives I didn't know existed. I think this is a great way to honor your ancestors and bring families together. I love history and am entering data for the cemeteries that I have information on.

If any of the people I have entered are your relatives, contact me using the edit link and tell me how you are related and I will transfer management to you.

My family comes mostly from Pennsylvania and Maryland. Surnames from my family include: Arrington, Bonebrake, Carson, Cerfass, Cearfoss, Hipsley, Hobbs, Kendall, Parlett, Sehman, Venrick, and Zerfass.

Another project that I am working on is identifying the burial place of those who do not have grave markers in the county that I live in. The families should know where their loved ones are buried.

Pinesville Historic Cemetery
Hi there, I noticed that you've created memorials for the folks buried here, and I'd like to take pictures to go along with your memorials, but I don't know where the cemetery is! Could you let me know, please? Thanks!

Wrong information
Although the information was neat and appear correct, you listed my grandmother as my great grandfathers step daughter. You did not pull the death certificate because it clearly states Eleanor was his daughter and my mothers, mother.

When you post wrong information that is not good. She died at a young age and Rev Scott gave the information with her husband.

Please make sure you go to www.kSU NAACP oral history project and go to Mary Cater, Gwendolyn Dillard, Miriam Culver, and Susanne Henry's name. Dr Scott did much history for Kennesaw State University.

Burton J. Adee birthdate
Hi Mark, Please change the birthdate for Burton J. Adee (Find A Grave# 92141972). He is shown in the 1870 US Census for his father, Stephen S. Adee, as a son 6 years old, and in the 1880 Census as 16. These 2 entries would make his birthdate about 1863, not 1853. If there is a headstone for him in Elmwood Cemetery or cemetery records, perhaps the month and day can be confirmed; nothing in the censuses show his full date of birth, so I cannot advise you on the month and day of birth.

Got it now, thanks Mark

RE: Terrell Robert Sewell and 2 Marys
Yes, it did. I was really confused and even though I knew she was in the census, I had no clue who her mother was. I figured that he had to have been married before for his wife to be 21 and his oldest child to be 10. Thank you.

LaVada "Vada" Keen, #24504215
Hello, LaVada is my Grand Aunt by marriage. There are notes on her memorial that say they were given by you, and I am confused by them.

LaVada married my Grand Uncle, Henry Reuben Keen. Her given name is LaVada but everyone called her Vada. I do not know her maiden name.

I do not have proof (yet) of her maiden name. Your notation on her memorial says that her father was: A.O. Vaughn, so that would make it Vaughn.

I have other Keen family members that say her maiden name was Barnes.

I am just asking where the info on her memorial came from?

Thank you,
Vicki Moss-Hall
