Bio and Links
Bio Photo Professional Historian and photographer; family genealogist; Amateur cartographer. PhD., History, Ohio State U., 1983. I've moved a lot in the last 35 years, and except for Anaheim California, where I assembled computers, wherever I was I taught college history courses. (Since 1985 I've taught nights, in addition to my day job.) At Ohio State and Purdue Universities teaching was my only job; I've been part-time/Adjunct faculty at University of Texas at San Antonio, San Antonio College, Wayland Baptist U., Central Texas College, Virginia State, Saint Leo U (Florida), and Richard Bland College, the Junior College for William and Mary. Worked for the Air Force at Kelly AFB, Texas. Now with Defense Dept. at Fort Lee, Va. I've written about 100 published articles on a variety of historical topics ranging from the first voyage of Christopher Columbus to the battle of Stalingrad. Also wrote a two-volume, 780-page (and @800 photos and drawings) military history, "The Illustrated History of American Military Commissaries." Travel: Europe (islands are my favorites: Azores, Sicily, Crete) plus the West Indies... also Panama, Mexico, Canada, and 44 of the 50 states. But never Asia, at least not yet.

RE: Griffin Taylor
Hey Pete! Hope your wife is doing better. I didn't post the documents on here, but they are on Ancestry along with everything I've been able to find on the rest of the family. I did get them all connected on here as well though. I think I still have your email address at work and can forward the docs if you want

RE: Agnes Danavage

Hello Pete,

You're very welcome for the photos! It was my pleasure. The section of the cemetery where they are located is a section with the stones flush to the family monuments. If you're at the the cemetery, the two Danavages are located within two rows of the eastern boundary of Sec. E, and of the cemetery. It was good that I took the photos now as there are trees all along that border and that area is rather heavily shaded once they leaf out.

Griffin Taylor
Hey, you gotta check out the memorial for Griffin! I got a copy of his probate court documents and have been able to track down ALL of the kids!!! It even appears he was married once before Maggie... Waiting on a copy of the record from Stark County to confirm.

RE: Children of Jesse & Martha Territt Glass
It's nice to make another family connection. Please contact me using my email, as I am working on a famous family member of ours.

Children of Jesse & Martha Territt Glass
So...I can see we both are working on the Territt/Glass line, Martha was a granddaughter of my my 3rd great Jacob grandparents. I really like that you were able to add the photos of Jesse & Martha. Let me know your thoughts on if George W. Glass #58568609, was the first child of Jesse & Martha. Birth record has George J. Glass, b-25 Oct 1911 and additional info. as Ferritt. Next... Mary Lou Glass Wines, unknown spouse, but I found today a Patrick J. Wines (b-27 Jun 1961, d-18 Jun 1997) in Canton. Mother; Glass and Father; Wines. Patrick married a Cathy A. Priebe on Apr 12, 1997. Possible son of Mary Lou Glass???

RE: Griffin Taylor
Don't kill yourself looking for it... It will turn up eventually :-) The only official document I've been able to come across is Griff's pension card. There are a NUMBER of documents on the web, but they are for a Griffin Taylor who was in the 40th U.S. Colored Infantry and enlisted out of Tennessee. I continue to search though...

I did get a message on Ancestry from a cousin who is from 3rd-GrGranpa George and his 1st wife. I was actually unaware of a first wife, but it does make sense. I'll email you some info that I have about George and his wife (and/or wives) and you can put in your 2 cents too... I've been boggled by this for a long time now, so a new set of eyes will be nice.

RE: Griffin Taylor
OH WOW!!! He did serve in the 80th OVI during the civil war, so it very well could be.

RE: Margaret Ann
I am sure she probably is, but not sure. There is already a photo request for Griffin by someone, so I haven't been able to submit one. I would think that they were buried together, but can't find a death cert on file for either that might show burial location. I sent an edit request to Griffin's "creator" to see if he could check for Maggie's grave too.

I'm not trying to do the whole country, lol. I concentrate on Belmont Co., OH. I use a book published by the local genealogy society and simply take photos when I visit any cemetery. I'll never finish this task. I work on the smaller, old cemeteries. I didn't get out much last summer. Hopefully, I'm more productive this year.
