Bio and Links
Bio Photo On Tuesday night, 13-Sept-2016, I lost my best friend Samuel.

He was one of two of the biggest lights in my life and I miss him terribly. A huge part of me is missing; never to be replaced.

If you have any edits sent to be by SAC or e-mail, please be patient with me as I am struggling with the transition of my editor, math checker and proof-reader not being with me anymore.
This is a prototype of the bell that will be tied to my wrist when I get placed in a box and set into the ground; I want to be sure that someone hears it...

I found and fell in love with this site while doing some research on previous owners of my home that was built over 100 years ago.

There is an incredible rush when a little piece of information is discovered, and through this site, I have met some great folks and it has been absolutely thrilling to be able to provide information to those I never would have been able to be in contact with.

I was able to provide a photo of an ancestor to a Find A Grave member, and their e-mail to me was packed with such gratitude that I felt as if I had just given them ten million dollars.

That has awakened a real passion for me; I now spend whatever time that I can spare, finding and reading old newspapers and documenting all that I can to see what information I can provide to those who are researching their family history.

Hopefully, my finds will either contain new and exciting leads, or at least confirm already discovered information.

If any information needs to be added, edited, or linked up, just let me know and I will be more than happy to do that.

**New as of October 2014**
I created a blog called Ancestral Sightings to contain my genealogical clippings of information discovered throughout my travels and whom I can and cannot link to on Find A Grave.

Please come pay it a visit and let me know what you think!

James Farr- Memorial #41249119
The dates for James Farr above are 1854 to 1938. The James on the mortality schedule may possibly be the James Farr who was probable son of David and Harriet Mackey Farr. Nothing further known of their James after 1850 census.

Your web site Ancestral Sightings

I notice you are publishing a lot of people on your site that are ancestors of mine.

I have quite a bit of info on many of them and if you'd like to know more I am willing to share if I have the info.

If you come across the names of

BECK, BRODT, CORRELL, HUNSBERGER, REIMEL or related family, I may be able to help.

You can email me at bebebuttner at gmail dot com

Thank You for your Permission for the use of the picture.

Sincerely, Sherry

Minnie Fullerton McGrew
I was wondering if I could possibly use the picture of Minnie's headstone on my Family Tree.
Minnie is the first wife of My Cousins Husband, she died so young,I Felt it would be proper to complete the Puzzle, Correctly.
