Bio and Links
Bio Photo In recent years I have devoted countless hours to tracing my family tree. Not only to honor those who have passed on, but to help keep the family's legacy alive for generations to come. I have found and researched so many wonderful people on my journey, and yet, I am not near complete. My journey continues, and hopefully my tree will continue to grow.

Anyone who is interested in finding out more about the people in my tree, please feel free to contact me. I am more than happy to share any information I have collected. I have accumulated many articles, like obits, weddings and random articles of goings on in the families.

Although, I politely ask that if you have personal information (articles, obits etc) to share about a person in my tree, please email me before uploading it to their memorial. I believe there are some things that should remain private and should stay within the family. Simply to preserve their dignity and to respect their privacy.

I welcome any and all notes, memories, messages and flowers to any memorial I manage.

I would like to say thank you to all of the volunteers on this website that have helped me in my research. I couldn't have done it without each and every one of you.

God Bless,
Kelly

Mary Yates Craig & Samuel D. Craig
Hi! I see that you have requested photos of headstones for Mary Yates Craig and Samuel D. Craig. This cemetery will not provide the location of grave sites to Find A Grave volunteers and prohibits photographs. However, I believe that someone will take the photographs if you can contact the cemetery to get the locations and then re-post your request.

The Bowker Family
HELLO AGAIN,
THE STORY THAT WAS TOLD TO MY AUNT DORIS WAS FRANCIS AND HIS BROTHER HAD BEEN SENT TO THE U.S. AFTER THE DEATH OF HIS MOTHER. HE SUPPOSEDLY STAYED IN ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY WITH A FAMILY DAVISON OR DAVIDSON BUT AGAIN I DON'T KNOW HOW TRUE IT IS. MY GRANDMOTHER AND HER FAMILY WERE FROM PITCAIRN IN ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY AND LATER MOVED TO WATERTOWN, JEFFERSON COUNTY NEW YORK.

The Bowker Family
Hello,
my name is Lisa. I am very interested in learning about the Bowker family. I was born, Lisa Mae Bowker. My father's name was Donald EDWARD BOWKER, HIS FATHER WAS A FRANCIS JAMES BOWKER WHO APPARENTY IMMIGRATED TO THE U.S. IN 1897 HE CLAIMED ANYWAY. HE MARRIED MARGARET ESTELLE REMORE. I'M NOT SURE IF THEY MARRIED IN JEFFERSON OR ONONDAGA COUNTY. I HAVE BEEEN TRYING TO SERCH FOR INFORMATION ON HIM FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW AND TURN UP VERY LITTLE. I THINK HE HAD FAMILY HERE IN JEFFERSON COUNTY NEW YORK. HE CLAIMED HE AND HIS BROTHER WERE SENT HERE AFTER THE DEATH OF HIS MOTHER AND STAYED WITH A OTHER PEOPLE. I DON'T KNOW HOW TRUE THE STORY IS. I ONLY KNOW HE DISAPPEARED FROM MY GRANDMOTHER AND THEIR FIVE CHILDREN, MARGARET, ROBERT, DONALD, PAUL AND DORIS SOMETIME BETWEEN 1927 AND 1930. MY AUNT DORIS WAS BORN IN 1927. I DON'T KNOW IF HE DIED, LEFT THE STATE OR WHAT. I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO KNOW WHO IS FAMILY WAS.I'M HOPING YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP ME. THE FAMILY LIVED IN SYRACUSE FROM AT LEAST 1915 ON. I WAS TOLD HIS MOTHER'S NAME WAS CHARLOTTE BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TRUE THAT IS EITHER. I BELIEVE FRANCIS, "fRANK" MIGHT HAVE LIVED IN WATERTOWN DURING THE TIME HE AND MY GRANDMOTHER MIGHT HAVE MARRIED BECAUSE HER MOTHER MINNIE ETTA BACON LIVED IN THE CITY OF WATERTOWN, JEFFERSON COUNTY NEW YORK DURING THAT TIME. MINNIE ETTA BACON WAS MARRIED TO CHESTER W. REMORE. THEY COULD HAVE POSSIBLY MET AND MARRIED IN ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY NEW YORK ALSO. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF BIG QUESTIONS REGARDING FRANCIS "FRANK" BOWKER' 1. WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM AFTER HE LEFT MY GRANDMOTHER, OR DID HE? AND WHERE DID HE AND MARGARET ESTELLE REMORE MEET AND WED? I REALLY HOPE YOUR INFORMATION ON THE BOWKER'S WILL HELP ME IN MY SEARCH. BY THE WAY, FRANCIS JAMES WAS SUPPOSEDLY BORN DECEMBER 25, 1886, AT LEAST THAT'S THE DATE HE PUT ON HIS MILITARY ENLISTMENT PAPERS.

RE: Thank You!
Happy to help. Would you like management of Laura V., evidently a child of William? And/or the others I have added (Unknown children of Abel, Wesley and Harriet).

RE: Thank you!
Kelly, very glad to help. Don't know if you were aware, but her daughter, Ruth, is buried next to her. I added a virtual photo to Ruth's memorial (#93788848) and asked the owner to add the link to Ethel. Ruth's father was William James Meredith, but it looks like he Ethel divorced. Take care.

looking for information about Bill McGrath
Dear Kelly

I'm a journalist and author writing a book about the years after World War II that includes some chapters set at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

I keep coming across your grandfather, Bill McGrath. He was involved in a lot of the Rensselaer student activities I'm looking into and exemplified the kind of returning veteran I'm trying to profile guys who came back from WWII and wherever they went took charge of things and tried to make them better. (His wife Joyce keeps popping up too, and I'm also interested in her.)

What I wonder: do you have any other information about them? Any letter or papers or diaries or scrapbooks they might have left from those early days?

I'd love to speak to you briefly if you have a moment. I can be reached at tjacoby@immigrationworksusa.org or 202 506-4541.

Thank you very much for considering it. I look forward to hearing from you.

All best, Tamar Jacoby

P.S. A little more about me: I'm a former journalist with the New York Times and Newsweek. I've published several books and am currently running a small nonprofit organization in Washington DC.
