|Bio and Links|
|Genealogy has been a serious business for me since I was in grade school. I documented and discovered that my 3rd great-grandmother Laura A. (WHITMARSH) MILLER's parents Horace WHITMARSH & Clarissa Mitchell (WARNER) WHITMARSH were both Mayflower descendants. I tracked the surname GILMORE back to Capt. James GILMORE of Rockbridge Co, Virginia. (Thanks to the late Shelby GILMORE for his ground breaking research in the 1960-70s.) Turns out that he was present at the Battle of Yorktown where poor Cornwallis discovered that yes he would be famous but no not for something to land him in to #10 Downing Street. Other discoveres include proving Mennonite ancestry via the BINKLEY orig BINGELLI and STAUFFER lines. |
Corrections & Questions: Use the S.A.C. for corrections and please differentiate facts from from suppositions and might be for the benefit of other researchers. Also if it's a question that I don't have an instant answer for that requires further research remember that the facts are the foundation for the solution. Correction and question e-mails should NOT be deletion requests as those requesting deletions are considered a nuisance and are treated accordingly. Include your e-mail address in the S.A.C. and you must have your findagrave.com messages visible to the public. If you are requesting links include the findagrave code number after each person.
Transfers: Most of the the virtual graves I manage are blood kin in some way. I don't transfer direct ancestors or very close relatives of my grandparents. For others that can happen if you are more closely related than me.
First: leave some kind of flower on the virtual grave in question. Use the correct e-mail (NOT a message on my profile) that includes your e-mail address (required) and tell me how you are related. If the person is someone I'm not related to I usually transfer these type immediately. (Unless you ask if you have other relatives buried in the same cemetery. In that case I might need that virtual grave as a reference point for easy access because non-relatives will not be in my internal database.) I probably know very little about a non-relative so someone who is a relative should manage them.
Second: If I am related but you are a closer relative to that person --- I will look at my internal database --- I may have questions for you! I may have active research that I conducting on that person and/or his/her near relatives. So just because I don't transfer a relative immediately doesn't mean no if I don't say no. Before I transfer a relative I back check my internal database to make sure what I have there matches findagrave. If you send in the "correction" additional facts, crosslinks to parents or other updated data I need to fix BOTH areas. I have also been known to transfer a group of graves for the same family. If I am doing a group transfer I also back check each cemetery to see if there are other relatives of the person who don't have virtual memorials but should. All of this takes TIME which is a precious commodity and when it is done it should be done right the first time.
The type of transfers I absolutely will not do are any type of these three:
#1 Any of my direct ancestors and other close relatives of my grandparents.
#2 To people who are bulk collectors of virtual graves that do not transfer outside of guidelines.
#3 To people who have harassed others on findagrave.
These are direct line known surnames to my 7th great-grandparents. Note that on those from Norge I am trying to use "farm" names because surnames were not generally required by law till about 1900 in Norge. American & Canadian states/provinces are abbreviated in all caps. Other countries are spelled out preferably in that nation's first language. When you see a surname repeated that is because it is actually more than one unrelated surnames with the the surname coming closest to this current time listed first. Several of these families can be accessed through my multiple virtual cemeteries. Most of these, but not all, are public:
SPECIAL NOTES CONCERNING PARTICULAR AREAS:
Missouri: Mercer County, Lindley and Harrison Twsps and also the neighboring townships of Clay Twsp in Harrison County and Hamilton Twsp in Decatur Co, Iowa: I do have a particular interest and expertise in this area as four of my great-grandparents were from this area. If you need help in this area ask. What I don't know I most likely know who you need to talk to.
Maine: Hancock County, Swan's Island: Make sure you see http://www.swansisland.org/cemetery.htm for any virtual grave in this area that I either entered and/or left a candle on. This is the source for all of the information, including links to parents, gravestone photographs or documentation of the lack of one. If the person in question had the surname JOYCE or married one then they either were themselves or married a direct descendant of the SAMSON, STANDISH, and ALDEN families.

|Mick Hersey||Helen Eloise (Gaves) Clymer|
I have updated this record as much as I can as of now. I sent a E-mail to the Funeral home to see if they have burial or Cremation information. As of now I simply do not know. I will contact her nephew in Minnesota to see if he may know.

|Bill Paschal||Nabby Pool|
Hi again treerpgmo. I did some more research on Ancestry.com and found a several intention/marriage records for a Nabby Holbrook who married Micah Pool 15 Dec 1796 in Weymouth. Micah was from Abington Nabby was from Weymouth. Some records identify her as Abigail others as Nabby. Family trees in Ancestry do identfy her parents as Nathaniel Holbrook and Hannah Torrey and Nabbe's DOB as Jan 20, 1777. Bill P
|Bill Paschal||Nabby Pool|
Hi Treerpgmo. I have absolutely no idea what the family history for Nabby Pool is. I am not related and took pictures of ALL of the legible stones in the cemetery. If this is one of your relations and you would like me to transfer this memorial to you, just ask. Bill Paschal
