Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am very much enjoying doing our family genealogy and learning about our family. The "Lemon" side, the "Eastman" side (my mother's) and the "Reid" side (my wife's). If anyone has any stories about our families I would love to see them.

I am working with Family Tree Maker 2014.I really enjoy working with this program. This project helps to keep my mind active. Originally from Galesburg, Michigan we now live in Lady Lake, Florida.

Connie and I have taken Genealogical trips researching our families and taking pictures of headstones in many cemeteries. We have been to Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, & Canada recording cemeteries. If anyone has any further information or corrections please feel free to contact me so I can make this information as complete and correct as possible. If I know we have family members in a cemetery I usually take pictures of every legible, and some barely legible, headstones.

Please help me with corrections.If you have additional info or a correction to one or more of my memorials please use the edit button then suggest a correction on that memorial. Leaving me a message makes it harder to make that correction.

These trips have afforded us the pleasure of meeting many distant cousins and we even found the original "Lemon" house built in 1809 and still being lived in in Columbia County, Pennsylvania. I had the pleasure of talking with a man that had grown up in the house and could tell me many stories of its history.

A picture is worth a thousand words and for the most part I only post internments with a picture of the headstone. Consequently I don't always record every inscription on the headstone. It is already written in stone.

We don't take all these pictures as if we're in some sort of a contest. We do it so we can help other people researching for their family members. I much prefer having a picture of the headstone. It is my belief that in death the family is much more likely to record the proper/correct information. It is true that upon rare occasions an engraver will make a mistake but much less likely than a census taker. Census records are a good guide but some people are very lackadaisical in giving the correct information to the census taker or the census taker is only trying to earn a pay check and just writes down what he/she wants, the way he/she hears it and many times very unledgible.

Unfortunately, Connie passed away on February 12, 2011. I will carry on but researching is not the same without her help. I truly miss being able to use her as a sounding board for ideas and problems. We really enjoyed traveling and taking photos of cemeteries.

Family research can be an addiction, it is for me, but it can be very rewarding and is a great avenue for meeting and corresponding with many distant relatives. I wish everyone happy hunting in your research.

Submitting a SAC ("Suggest a Correction" on the Edit tab) is the ONLY way to give me the information I need for corrections or transfer requests. I will not make changes from public messages. Please don't make me turn off public messages. (Public messages don't have the necessary links to do changes efficiently.)

RE: William Lundy
Many apologies. Depending on google search Drummond Hill is listed by both names. :(
Thank you for all your hard work in documenting the cemetery!

RE: William Lundy
That is very interesting because I took the same picture at Lundy's lane cemetery.

Thanks so much for updating my great-grandmother's memorial. The Schell line now goes from my mother # 130919929 to the Schell family in New York. She also brings the line from my mother to the Baker family in Pennsylvania, close to where Flight 93 went down.

#17323618 Jacob Lemon
Hello, I believe you have an error in this memorial. According to E. A. Owen's 1898 history, Pioneer Sketches of Long Point Settlement, the gravestone in the Old Woodhouse Methodist Church Cemetery places Jacob Lemon's birth on January 12, 1816. Have you seen the headstone to confirm the alternate birth date you have included in the memorial?

RE: Agnes Goodsir
Thanks, Jim. I think I sorted out my Agneses! There are TOO MANY Scottish people in my line with the same names, that silly naming pattern... There aren't very many Goodsirs on Find A Grave in the first place. Hope you are doing okay--I haven't written to you for a long time. Becky

Hello James,
May I have your permission to use your photo of the Benton Cemetery sign and the gravestone for Josiah Fritz and Cleo B Fritz on my ancestry.com family tree, with attribution to you and Find a Grave? Thank you very much for your consideration.

Marian V. Heilman Mann
Good morning,
Marian V. Heilman Mann (1925 - 1948)* is a NOT daughter - there is no mention of her in the obituary nor on the 1930 anc 1940 Federal Census.
She should be removed from the relationships
