|I grew up walking cemeteries with my parents and have spent almost 30 years researching our family, and my direct line (surnames PACE and MULLEN) is heavily documented. Since my mother's death, I've continued on alone, missing her help, the unbelievable gems she dropped in my lap. Most of all I miss her. Hers was my first entry here and in her honor, I added more, including a box of funeral cards that belonged to my grandmother. Please do not assume that all genealogy information posted on the internet is correct. Do your best to verify ALL information with primary source documents - there is so much wrong information on the internet.|

Here is what I am really interested in. Do you have information that Caleb Chitwood was WRF's dad?
"Husband of Dora Cordelia (Wilkins); was a Baptist minister; son of Caleb Chitwood and Delpha Evelyn Fricks."
|Wesley Fricks||Fricks Family|
I am looking for information on William Riley Fricks and his mother Eva Fricks. They originate from Banks County, Georgia.
I am interested in learning more about William Riley and his brothers and sisters also.
Please help if you have any information.

|Thomas Koch||John Shankland Grave|
I found your entry on John Shankland buried near Myers, KY in the Shankland Family Cemetery, which is now under control of Land Management. Mr. Shankland is my wife's great, great, great grandfather. What do we have to do to go about getting permission to visit the grave? Would appreciate any help you might be able to give me.

I've always felt family should always be maintained by family.
Good luck with your family research,

|Sharon B.||RE: Samuel Shankland|
Thanks for your note! I pulled my binder on Lucinda V. (nee Mattingly) Shankland, wife of Samuel Thompson Shankland, and found the following:
According to my notes,Samuel Thompson was the son of Andrew Gibbs Shankland (b. 26 Jun 1805; Nicholas Co., Kentucky; d. 07 May 1880, in Brown Co., Illinois.) and Andrew's wife, Judith Ann Stoops, b. 07 Jul 1805, in Franklin, Venango, Pennsylvania. Judith Ann died 29 Oct 1882, in Brown Co., Illinois.
Samuel T. Thompson was born 1 Sep 1830, in Kentucky.
In regards to Samuel Thompson Shankland's wife, the former Martha Ann Mattingly, my notes show she had been born on 12 Aug 1832, in Lebanon, Kentucky; and died on 04 May 1901, in Bourbon County, Kansas.
Martha's father, Henry Mattingly had been born on 02 Aug 1797, in St. Mary's, Maryland. He died on 31 Mar 1884, in St. Augustine,Fulton Co., Illinois.
Martha's mother, Mary Ann Wimsatt, had been born on 13 Apr 1805, in Marion County, Kentucky. She died on 29 Aug 1862 in Fulton, Illinois.
Henry Mattingly and Mary Ann Wimsatt, were married in Washington Co., Kentucky, on 23 Feb. 1824.
Children born to Henry and Mary Ann Mattingly were: Mary Jane (1830); Martha Ann (1832); William Henry (1834); James Dennis (1838); Lucinda (1838); Amanda (1840); Joseph (1843); Mary C. (1845) and Mary Elizabeth (1845).
My notes on Henry's line reach back to 1600, in Omny, Sussex, England ... Charles Mattingly was married to a woman named Judith (surname unkn). However, that info was found on Ancestry, and I haven't yet researched it personally.
It's been awhile since I worked on this family but if memory serves me correctly, Henry's father, George Mattingly, had also been born in St. Mary's and married an Elizabeth Wimsatt, who was Henry's mother, in early 1795.
Thanks again for responding! If you have questions or comments you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Kyle Dameron||Parrish Chapel Cemetery|
Hi Gayle -
I have several Myers relatives buried in Parrish Chapel. I am very interested in seeing what can be done to restore and preserve this historic old cemetery. There seems little that I can do from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Any ideas?
|Denise Parsons||RE: Edna Fusselman|
Sorry about the mis spelling It has been correted.
|Patrick Casey||Three Greek Men- Greenwood Cem.|
Since I visited Greenwood Cemetery with my mother three years ago, I've wondered how the three young Greek men whose memorial I photographed, might have died. Pete Tsoncalas, Deameseaos Plarenas, and Mike Andradicis all died on the same day, Mar. 3, 1916. They must have died together in some sort of accident-- fire, mining accident, or? Perhaps if you have access to Decatur newspaper indexes, or other sources, something more could be added to their memorials. I have searched Ancestry.com and GenealogyBank.com and have not found a thing.
Someone must have paid for their large monument-- though since all three were buried together, it makes me think that they were simply single young immigrant laborers-- who died thousands of miles from family and friends.
Thank you for your time and trouble.
