Dear Concerned Find-A-Gave Contributors and visitors,

Regarding: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia

A former large volume F-A-G Contributor had a dispute with Find-A-Grave staff and Deleted some 80% or more, of their contributed memorials, estimated to be about 40,000 or so. Thus causing the rest of us local Contributors, over the last year or more, to re-enter those family, friends and distant relatives we noted were missing.

Once F-A-G had decided to take positive action, they reloaded all the Deleted memorials from that former F-A-G Contributor, on Wednesday, 25feb2015. F-A-G staff, undoubtedly knew they would cause tens of thousands of Duplicates, and assigned their staffer, known as 'ProjectMgr' to work through their Merge process.

Please be patient and allow F-A-G to work through the entire group of Duplicate memorials.

Thank you.

Collier, James and Martha
In looking at your sites managed I see where you go to a James and Martha Baker Collier. One of my late cousins, Everette Paul Hankins had made a draft sheet of marriages for Lawrence Co Ohio Historical Society and he had mistakenly listed James and Martha Baker Collier as Anna's parents. Proof of Meschack Collier m Rebecca Foster in 1837-39 will in Madison Co., Indiana showed Anna as their daughter.
However, this James and Martha Baker Collier was the parents of a Agnes Collier m Joseph William Hankins, m 1818 Dec. This Joseph Wm Hankins is brother to my Daniel Hankins m Anna Collier. I have still to find the children of Agnes and Joseph Hankins as he remarried in 1832 but was listed with Agnes in the 1830 census of Lawrence Co Ohio. Could you shed any light on this linage of Agnes and Joseph m 1818? What became of her and their children?

There is much research to still do. Anything I can help you with, let me know. Georgie Ann

Hi Mary Gail,
I read your message for my Grandmother's site as well and noted your two addresses for both Odd Fellows and Masonic Cemeteries. I know they are in a cemetery southeast of Orland which is most likely the Odd Fellows Cemetery. I will check this week with the cemetery district and see why they listed both as my grandparents resting place. Grandpa did not belong to the Masonic Lodge as far as I know. He belonged to the Orland Grange.
My aunt Lenna Fay Hankins and father George Geary Hankins are also buried next to their parents.

How are we related as Collier cousins? I come from a Anna Collier b 1805 m Daniel Hankins b 1805 married in 1825 Ohio. Her parents were Meschack Collier m Rebecca Foster.
I know where Meschack and Rebecca are buried but I have yet to locate the death date and place of death for Anna Collier Hankins. I last found her on the 1880 census of Ryan Township in Milan Co Ks living in the household of her oldest son Roland Hankins with his second wife Barbara Ellen Davison (Davidson). Roland moved on to PowderBluff Oregon around 1883 and she did not appear to be with the family then nor had I found her living with any of her other children. Could it be she remarried at her old age? Do you have any clues? I have a photo of her.

I am happy to hear from you and look forward to staying in touch with you. We have several cousins in Indiana who have done a wonderful job tracing the Collier linage and then I have another cousin Thomas Bell who I have not heard from in awhile.

One of the lines in Indiana inter related to our Hankins/Davison(Davidson)lines. So much work has been done to untangle the family trees, I am hoping to finish my branch of the Hankins tree soon.

You can call me at 530 868 5555. I also live in California, south of Sacramento. I live in Biggs which is only about an hour or so from Orland where I grew up with my grandparents on Railroad Avenue. So many memories.... Georgie Ann

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I am aware that my grandfather and grandmother, Lenna Jane Beavers Hankins is listed in both cemeteries. I will contact the cemetery district in Orland and see which one they consider them buried in and make the changes. Until I hear back from them, I will need to leave it as is since they were transferred to me and I did not originally manage their sites. Again, thank you, they raised me and I miss them greatly.

All the pictures I've taken can be used, as long as they are not used on a "for profit" site such as Find A Grave is NOT a for profit site.

I no longer work this cemetery since I don't live in that area any longer. You can use my photo if you would like to set up a memorial page.
