Cannaday Family
Hi Joel

I am a Cannaday descendant & would love to share information with you. My grandmother was Georgia Marie Cannaday, dau of George, who moved to Portsmouth, OH in the early 1900's; son of WM Ferdinand, son or David, son of James (Revolutionary War Veteran), son of William, son of John, son, John & Margaret Summers, son of John, son of William. I have found this information mostly on & the Mormon site, Do you know if the very early Wm (1647-1681), John (1680-1753), John (1707-1753), WM (1730-1801) is correct? I've been told if the early migration is correct, we are probably from Scotland. I've had my DNA checked, I am 30% Great Britain & Scotland.

Another big question is does anyone know the parents of Elizabeth Raikes (Rakes) wife of James the Rev. War Veteran? I know this is probably too much info to start, but I would really love to talk to you. Thank you, Karen

Very Merry Christmas
Thank you for transferring Pop's memorial to me.

Ralph does remember you, and said to tell you hello.

I would love to attend the reunion. I will put the date on my calendar. Hopefully, I will be able to be there.

Your friend,

Allen Farner
Civil War Soldier
Hello Mr. Cannaday:
My name is Allen Farner. Awhile back, on the internet, I stumbled acrosse a Lieutenant from the civil war by the same name as myself.
He was from Vigina and my Farner ancestors were from Wisconsin so I doubt if there is any relationship.
But, I wondered if he survived the war. And thanks to the information you put on Find-A-Grave
I now know he did.
However, he didn't get very old. Was that because of hie time in the war? And is there a military marker at his gravesite?
Thanks again
Al Farner

Turner Family Cemetery
I have added several family members to the "Turner Family Cemetery" today. The only two listed were Walter & Elsie Turner. Could you rename this Cemetery to the "Peter C. Turner Family Cemetery" since this cemetery was on his homeplace & his family is buried here. There are so many Turner Family Cemeteries listed, it is hard to find the right one. Thank you!

Joel, I noticed that on the afore mentioned memorial, that the death date is 2015 and the burial date is 2013. Which is the correct one?

Cannaday Family Cemetery
Dear Joel: By any chance do you know where the Cannaday Family Cemetery is located in Stuart, Va? I can't find it using the directions that is on the cemetery page.
