Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born Annabelle Mary Henderson w/o Jesse Rupert (Columbiana County) and only child born to John Cassell Henderson born Newport, Kentucky and Mary Beaton Jenkins born Glasgow, Scotland. Jesse Rupert is s/o J Vernon Rupert born Columbiana Co, Ohio and Mary Paden.

Only paternal roots in America, I follow a path to Fairfax Co Virginia (grandmother's name Pritchartt).

Some interesting facts discovered about my family:
Henderson, Nevada named after my group.
The Hendersons still operate the oldest family owned Drug Store in America to date called "Henderson's Drug Store" founded 1841 by Osborne Henderson in Glasgow, Howard Co Missouri. The oldest Henderson in my group, lived to be 104, Dr. Joseph Lewis Henderson as did his sister.

I have no biological connection to Ohio and
will transfer any memorial in Columbiana/Mahoning Co Ohio to persons with interest.
I check and work on this daily, update edits and will respond to email/corrections, etc promptly. Please note as I have posted many memorials from the cemetery index volumes, Audrey Allison has brought them to life by walking the cemeteries, photographing and posting headstones to thousands of the memorials. It is a joint effort by many.
Please do not ask for a transfer then "disappear from the face of earth"!

To all who so righteously remind us the primary purpose of Find a Grave is "GRAVE REGISTRATION", and then "boringly" recite in your bio the FAG rules... yes we get it! To the group I work with, (look at my friend's list) it is a mere "starting point" as we all work together, share, and seek to know more about the folks, what they looked like and where they lived as we "register their graves". All of us will go to great lengths to find out more!. .. to sum this up they are "NOT JUST A NAME ON THE A STONE"!

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS 2014 YEAR - Two new stones shine from the "Pritchartt" plot in Bellefontaine Cemetery in St Louis Mo for the first time...

May 20, 2014
Placed a military marker on an unmarked grave... After a long search for military records for a great uncle who was a Conf Soldier, and alas, finally secured them and accepted for a military headstone placed on his grave after 114 years beneath an unmarked grave!! He was Pvt John Norvell Caskie. Thanks to Angela Smythe who had an interest in the Caskie family and provided a copy of military record that made this all possible.

Aug 18, 2014 - Stone placed on great grandmother Maria L Bingham Pritchartt's grave who died in 1859 from anemia. Stone is now set in plot St Louis Mo. She has rested for 155 years in an unmarked grave, but that will be no more. I guess that is why I was chosen to do what I do. Amen

I encourage relatives to post old photos to memorials and I will sponsor ANYONE's memorial just to have additional photos uploaded. (It is well worth the $5.00 Find a Grave charge) Focus as of 11/9/2014 will be to review current memorials created, complete data as to birth, date, place, etc and to link/find parents, siblings or family. Just as in life, every memorial should be linked to family. And "friends" keep those edits coming my way as it helps so much identify all the folks at rest. 7/20/2015 currently working on editing and updating families and relationships in Fairfax City Cemetery in Fairfax Va, and the surrounding area.

My files are now available to me and I save everything posted.

(1)I accept all corrections from posters - If it is not correct, it can be changed!! Simple as that!!

(2) I never post a memorial or grave that I won't research further as to parents, siblings, etc.

Hi Anne: I am writing in regard to Find A Grave memorial #22021410 to report her married surname was actually Axt. She was the wife of Herbert Carl Axt. I noted the death certificate for her had been incorrectly indexed as well and have submitted alternate information to

Ruppert Family Cemetery
I went over to look at the people at the Ruppert Family Cemetery and they had the same thing that he died at 23... Is this the same Benjamin? Is the stone hard to read and they just couldn't make out the dates? I have others that say he died in Jefferson Twp., IN, so he should be buried there, right?

RE: Ruperts in Ohio/Indiana
This is a typo...

Benjamin 7/21/1816 - 10/8/1809, aged 23

He died before he was born... I think it should probably be 1909.

His last child was born in 1879, so he had to of been alive at least until 1878!

RE: Ruperts in Ohio/Indiana
Thank you for working on this... Not being able to tell the Benjamin Ruperts apart has bugged me for a while. If I can't get good evidence or documentation of the correct one, and I don't know for sure, I could be barking up the wrong tree--dog joke--lolol

I am back now to look at what you have posted here and I noticed some on has been working on that you on Ancestry (the Ark) that has been showing up on my "Recent Member Connect Activity" ?

Thanks, Barb

RE: Ruperts in Ohio/Indiana
THANK YOU! I'll take a look at all you have sent today and put together the pieces of the puzzle... Looks like you've sent me something to work with to make the connection without guessing...

Bless you!

RE: Ruperts in Ohio/Indiana
Hi Anne,

Thanks for replying on vacation! I've been looking all over find a grave for both Benjamin Rupert and Nancy A. Shroyer (his fourth wife) and nothing... They last lived in Roanoke, Huntington, Indiana so I focused my searches there. I find other names with those surnames, but not them.

I have Amanda Rupert Sunday's stone. She married Henry Levi Sunday and moved to Michigan.

I'll keep looking...

Ruperts in Ohio

I am the great granddaughter of Amanda Rupert, b. 1859 in Jackson, Huntington, Indiana. She was the daughter of was Benjamin Rupert and Lucinda McCurdy. I'm trying to sort out the Ruperts that came from Pennsylvania to Ohio, then Indiana. There are a few Ruperts with the same name like Benjamin, Jacob, etc. that I am not sure who's who! Can you help? You seem to have a lot of info on them... Some other names associated with them in my tree are Sunday and McCurdy...

Also, do you have a McCurdy tree on Ancestry? My 'handle' on Ancestry is "AuntieBarBar" and I have a tree there if you can/want to check it out.

Lucy Finley Page McIntosh
I think Lucy married John E. Trebune after divorcing Frazier Earl McIntosh. (based on her social security app). I have also found an obit for their son, Frazier Earl McIntosh, Jr. in the 7-10-1933 LA times.

RE: Henry E. Smith
You're welcome! Note that Essephene (also spelled Issyphemia, Asyphena, and many other variations) is not Henry Smith's wife, but Nathan's. (The large age difference is accurate, by the way. They were both second spouses.) Also, Josephine Smith #88536629, buried nearby, is Nathan and Essephene's daughter.

Thanks for all the work you are doing here!
