Charles Elms Jr (1793-1839)
There appears to be an error on the death year of Charles Elms Jr (1793-1839). I have tried to zoom in on the headstone picture, but it is not clear enough. All research suggests he died in 1835, not 1839.

Research indicates:
1) Charles Elms Jr, died before father Charles Elms Sr, Will dated 13 Jun 1835
2) Charles Elms Jr, died before his last pension payment, in Sep 1835 (pension paid twice yearly; Mar & Sep)
3) Charles Elms Jr, died AFTER last child John P Elms was conceived. (probably sometime in 1835).

I can supply more details on research upon request.

Matthews ancestors
My Matthews line is from George Matthews (b 1764, possibly in Baltimore but moved to what is now near Wheeling WV sometime prior to 1792). He m1 Althea Sellman and m2 Margaret Caldwell. Family lore is he had a couple brother's, one of whom went to North Carolina. Does your Matthews line happen to intersect? Thanks.

On the Thomas Grier memorial his first wife, Hannah (24687349), is listed as his daughter. Notice that she was born in 1761 prior to the birth of Thomas's spouse, Susannah Spratt Grier. The person who maintains Hannah's memorial is listed as "inactive".

How do we make this right?

I am Hannah and Thomas's 4G Grandson.

RE: Thomas Withrow Gravestone
I started doing this due to my own research into my family tree. I'm glad I can help others out with theirs.
