Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am always happy to transfer a memorial to a family member closer in relationship than I am. Just let me know which ones, using the edit tab in the upper right and then under "suggest a correction" ask for the transfer of the memorial and include how you are related.

I have been doing genealogy for 45 years and have published family history books for my parents, my husband's parents, my daughter-in-law's family and my son-in-law's family. I am a retired librarian and have traveled with my husband as we volunteered to help build Habitat for Humanity homes all over the country. We have visited all of the cemeteries of known direct ancestors for all our families; I have loved adding them all to this wonderful website.

My genealogy is downloaded to the World Connect Projects link at I have 7 gedcom databases, accessed by typing in the database name in the "jump to specific database" box or by searching by name and looking for my entry with one of the database names below:
gravleesellers, druinlewis, macyblair, barchliger, lewisadams, rudisilltrigg or fieldmasser.

RE: Morilla member of Cumberland
I'd leave her in Alexander. Here's the reason. The current Alexander Presbyterian Church once was called Cumberland Presbyterian Church. It was moved in the 1800's to its current location from next to where the actual Cumberland Cemetery is located. For a long time people would say a person is buried in Cumberland Cemetery, but they were referring to the cemetery behind the church's current location and not where it used to be. The Cumberland Cemetery listed on findagrave is the actual photo of the actual Cumberland Cemetery, but there are many burials that are listed in it that are actually in the Alexander Cemetery behind the church. I can't remember right now when the church was moved to the current location and then the name changed to Alexander a few years later, which is the township name that it is located in. Hope this helps. I still plan to look some more in the area and see if I can possibly still locate a marker.

Thomas Harding Jr
Hi Diane,
Thank you for all you've contributed. I'm so glad to find this valuable resource!
Do you know if this Thomas George Harding:
is the father of Thomas Harding Jr? You mention him in your memorial, but I don't know how to confirm whether this is the right one.
Thanks again!
:) Gillie Kofal

RE: McVay grave photos
You are very welcome. We searched for Patterson, but was unable to find a marker. The curator was in the cemetery at the time and he did have Morilla Patterson in his book, but no other information. It stated Morilla was buried in Cumberland, which could mean the old part behind the church or in another cemetery about 200 yards away that is the official Cumberland cemetery. Both cemeteries were checked with no luck. We'll check more again another time. There are old stones that are very hard to read and some stones are missing. Sorry

Thank you so much for fulfilling my photo request for Carrie's grave stone. I appreciate your willingness to take the time to travel to the cemetery, take the photo, and then post it on Carrie's Memorial. It's sad to see that the stone has fallen but I'm thankful to have the photo before the stone completely disintegrates.

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for the wonderful picture of Thomas Nickles. I really appreciate your efforts to find the marker for Laura Johnson Bond. I will make a note on her memorial page, "no head stone found". Again thank you for your time and the wonderful picture.

Thank you so very much for the wonderful photo of his headstone, and also for the efforts to locate a marker for his second wife. He is my great grandfather and I had never seen his marker. Mike.
