Bio Photo Mayflower Connection: I descend from the following
Degory Priest, Francis Eaton, John Alden,Priscilla Mullins, Myles Standish, Peter Brown, Francis Cooke, George Soule, Isaac Allerton, Richard Warren, through my father, Member 27436, Society of Mayflower Descendants.

My uncle, Carl Glee Smith Jr is memorialized at Manila American Cemetery and Memorial in the Philippines. His life was lost during Typhoon Cobra, December 18, 1944 when three ships went down, USS Hull, USS Monaghan and his ship the USS Spence. I have attempted to leave notes at each of the memorials for the 793 sailors who lost their lives that day. I also see many other memorials that no one has left flowers or honored them, I am also honoring those as I have time. There are over 44,033 memorials at that cemetery. May God bless the thousands of families who suffered loss during WW II.

I am attempting to link many of Smith burials in an effort to help those who are just starting their family search venture. Descending from four Smith branches is a challenge. At the present time, I am linking Smiths from several states from Vermont, New York,Ohio to Illinois, Nebraska and Kansas. From Virginia through Kentucky to Arkansas. From Georgia, Arkansas to Texas.

In addition, I am documenting my Jones from New Hampshire, through Ohio, Illinois to Nebraska.

A few of my family lines are Blatherwick, Farrow, Gilbert, Wood, Kelsey, Evans, Blake, Cady, Watkins, Stewart, McCormick, Jones, Stiles, McDermott, Hoffman, Smith, Black, Brazle, Roth, Martin, Cole, Morgan, Oswalt

If you use my personal photos, please give me credit for the photo, this includes family photos posted as well as cemetery photos. Thank you.

I will consifer transferring memorials that are your direct family, but not my family line. I am not into numbers and am happy to share my work. I love to link family members and to know a bit about the person.

Mary Ann Wirth Ackers

Dear Vickye,

We were viewing your memorial for Mary Ann Wirth Ackers, #114918569 in the Highland Cemetery in Mt. Carmel, Illinois, and see her dates are 1843-1916. We are wondering if there is something that we do not know about her grave, as it is our understanding that Mr. Roy D. Short did not start the Highland Cemetery until 1931. Would you please review your source on where she was buried?

Monte Vista Cemetery
I wish I lived closer. I would be happy to help. I know alot of people buried in this cemetery. Unfortunately, I live in California so it would be out of the question. I do come to NM once a year but my sister & I usually work on the cemeteries around our old homes while there. Hopefully someone can help. I will just tell the lady who accepted the photo request to hold off until the records are straightened out. Thanks Vickye.

Harold Blatherwick
Hi Vickye,

Obviously you have a connection to Harold. So I want to let you know that I added a photo of him to his memorial:

The caption contains a link to his naturalization documents.

I have no connection to Harold, I just find things online and pass them on :)

Frank Billingsley rec 103862825
Hi Vickye,
I see you added Frank Billingsley as born and died in 1867. Also Minnie Billingsley born 1866 and died in 1872. Both buried in Shockley Cemetery, Marshall County, Kansas. Can I ask where you got this information? We could not find Frank's headstone. Minnie's headstone say's something different. Thanks, Mitzi Billingsley-Cruz
