|Bio and Links|
Born in Spokane, WA, to now deceased:|
Lt. Col. Jay William Foster and Dorothy June Halverson. Married and living in Sugar Land, Texas.
Genealogy is my greatest passion and I have been enjoying it for about 21 years now (2013).
I used to enthusiastically travel to various places in the U.S.A. exploring where my ancestors once lived. That ended in 2004. That is when a fellow, who had been drinking, rear-ended and totaled my car while I was stopped at a red light. Now, it is too difficult for me to walk those grave yards. So, my research is now done mostly through the computer.
One place I visited in the 1990's was Havana, IL. Where my paternal 2nd great grandparents lived, raised their children, and are buried. Also, it seems, I had numerous cousins who once lived there.
When I first arrived, I parked the car on top of the hill overlooking the main town of Havana, stood there looking all around and quietly said "hello family". I almost expected a shout back of "hello cousin. welcome!" The main street and many of the old houses have been retained to their original appearance. A step back in history.
Recently, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) approved my application to join. This is a proud achievement for me. Following in the footsteps of two ancestors...a cousin and a great-grand aunt. Research done all through genealogy.

|Culletto180||RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 36240115|
I tend to believe the gravestone marker. In 1850 and 1860 censuses his date of birth is listed at abt. 1794 So that together with the gravestone marker is why I kept 1793 in my tree on ancestry.com. Hope this helps.

Washington County, Indiana, courthouse in Salem, Indiana.
I'd like to send you a document (history and will, etc.), but I can't see a way to attach it to this reply.

Find A Grave Memorial# 133092558 - You have requested a change to this memorial that I currently maintain.
I have been unable to confirm the change, can you tell me your source, or if you are related? Kindly contact me direct at my email address
She was married to Floyd Hackley, of which family I am researching. Would love to add her middle name but prefer to make changes that I am able to confirm.

Thank you for the information on Everette. I have added it to his memorial..... Linda
|Janice Prichard||RE: Abel Alonzo Foster and Mary Wood Foster|
Thank you. Abel was a Revolutionary War Patriot. He was my grandmother Vera Lord's G-G-G grandfather. My line is Abel, Benjamin, Emerson, Jennie, Vera, my dad and then me. I see you have a Foster name. Are you related to these Fosters?
|Dylan Edward Mulligan||John Calvin DeLoach|
At the foot of John Calvin DeLoach's grave, there is a marker which documents his military service. That is where I got the information. Like you, I can find no records online to corroborate what the marker says. There is currently not a picture of that marker on Find a Grave, but next time I go to the cemetery, I will try to remember to photograph and post it.
|Donald E. Garrett||RE: Mossie Caroline Jones Garrett Summerall|
Karen! Find A Grave #53596159 is a duplication and should be removed. Mossie Caroline Jones was first married to Lennie Charney Garrett 24 Feb 1921 in Bristol, Tenn. Lennie died in 1940 of TB. Lennie and Mossie still have a couple of children living. About seven years after Lennie Garrett died, Mossie married Wilmot Summerall (1947). Wilmot did divorced his wife in 1947, Polk County, Florida, but it was his first wife.Cecil Goodwin. This was very confusing, huh. Lennie Garrett was my Great Uncle. Hopefully, this answers some of the confusing issues. In His name.... Donald Garrett
|Anonymous||RE: Almira A. Foster|
Yes, I think they are the same. I removed mine.
Karen, the only information that I have on the DeLoach memorial came from the headstone, so I am not certain what the "JP" initials in the father's name represent.
Joseph Thomas DeLoach
Birth: Feb. 5, 1872
Death: Aug. 7, 1878
"Son of J P & M S DeLoach" (son of Joseph Phillip DeLoach and Martha "Mollie" Talley DeLoach)
"Loving Remembrance of Our Dear One..."
Sorry that I couldn't be of any help regarding my DeLoach's full name.
Sincerely, Brenda W.
