|If you see an ancestor to you that I have uploaded, please request a transfer. I am happy to do so, even if it falls outside of the Findagrave guidelines. I have tried to help others find their ancestors as others have helped me. |
Always eager to meet a new cousin along the way too. If you share an ancestor with me, I'd love to hear from you and trade info / pictures / whatever I have. Will take what ever you have.
You are entitled to use any photo I have posted. I took them so others could see the gravestones of their ancestors and families. If you happen to get rich publishing some of my photos of gravestones please share a percentage with me. You are entitled to use any photo of a person I have posted, We have a wonderful family treasure of photos. I am always curious if others have ones I don't have of my family members.
If you have a picture of a family member of mine please be sure to contact me, I'd love to see it.

|Margaret Treece||RE: McKissick|
The McKissick in our family history is Bessie McKissick who married Fred Higgins. Bessie died about 1928. Bessie was related to some of my mother's family somehow - maybe through the Fancetts. My family names are Crombie, Bonney, Shevalier, Fancett, Lathrop.
Some lived near Cortland. Some in Ithaca where I visited my grandparents. I don't know where Jordon is - or who the McKissick is you mentioned. I do want to learn more.
Specifically I am looking for A. McKissick who worked for the CCC in Cortland. Mother thought that it was the Cortland Corset Company. I have discovered there was also a Cortland Carriage Company. I have a piece of silverplate that is engraved to him from the workers of CCC. My parents inherited it about 1932 when they married.
Does any of that ring any bells?
Bessie's father was James S. and her grandfather was Aaron. In the family folklore about the silver plated piece it is logical that Aaron is my man. Bessie and Fred Higgins never had any children.
Do you have any information on the McKissick line other than the Find a Grave information you posted? I believe they lived near Cortland, NY.
I love your information about places to research on line. Thank you for the valuable information and your generosity.

I'm unclear how Origen Eaton (1765-1839) who was born in Conn and died in NYS could have a son who was born in Kent England? Edward Eaton was born in Kent England in 1811.

|Sheila Farrington Schweitzer||Jared Smith|
Thanks for the edit. Jared married my relative, as his second wife, Mary Parmenter Cody, a widow who came by herself in 1794 from Massachusetts to Marcellus. She bought up most of my childhood home hamlet of Clintonville and indeed was the founder of our community. Her land was later bought by my ancestor grandparents and was in our family until the 1970's. Mary's first husband, Joseph Cody, had strong Loyalist ties during the Revolutionary War while her second one, Jared, served as a patriot. I have seen that happen a lot in my family.
Terribly hot this summer here in Florida but know you folks are getting your share of it, too. Have a great day! Sheila( former resident of Marcellus area.)
|Randolph James||Find A Grave Memorial# 66239520 Thomas E. "Jessie" James|
Thank you for posting this. I was at this cemetery about 5 years ago looking for the stone of Thomas E. James without really knowing where it was located. I didn't have as much time as I needed and didn't locate it so your info and pictures are great!
Can you tell me your info source for the "Jessie" in the name (not on the stone itself). Thomas E. James is the brother of my great grandfather William E. James and I have limited info about him. Thank you !
|Catherine ADH||Charles A Locke|
Charles A Locke, Find A Grave Memorial# 88508848.
Please look closely at the grave stone, it looks like to me the death date could be Nov. 18, 1897 instead of Nov. 15, 1897. See what you think?
