I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. Daniel Carlyle Ahern and I married in 1971 and he passed away in 1986. We had three children. I now live in Texas and have remarried. I have four living children and six grandchildren.
I started realizing how neglected some cemeteries were when I began exploring Texas. I didn't realize until I found this site that there was something I could do to help preserve some of the memorials. I took a few pictures at a local cemetery and posted them on Find a grave. When I went back two weeks later, something (or someone) had knocked over the memorials. I was so glad that I had taken the pictures and posted them on Find A Grave. If you find any errors on the data that I have added, please let me know. I only add information to help others further identify the individuals.
RE: Terry Wade I'll let you save the management of T. U. Wade for a descendant of his. Now that I have linked all those children and wives to him, I pretty much given you all I have on the immediate Terry Utley Wade family. I am a descendant of his first wife's brother, Jeremiah Conklin Jones. Thanks for all the additions you made.
RE: Terry Wade Thanks. It still does not show the other Stella for the 3rd marriage Once the links for Henry Clay, Stella, Donnie Sue, & Walter get OK'd by those managing the memorials all of his children should be connected to him.
i just wish we knew where Aunt Hannah was buried so she could be included.
I noticed an error in the information you have on his military service. I have his pension records, muster roll, Etc. The information you have I believe is for his nephew Solomon S. Fletcher who was married to one of Solomon Fletcher's daughters, Rebecca Fletcher.
Fletcher, S., Pvt., 2nd Class Capt. A.J. Hardin Mtd. Co. H, 1st Regt., 2nd Brig., Col J.F. Davis commdg., TST Enlisted Mar 15 1864 in Kaufman County for the war Served since Sept 2-63 Age 50 Company Station at Camp Darnell Mar 14 1864 1st Lt. R.T. Jones comdg Co., 1 muster roll dated Mar 15 1864
RE: Charles Barnes Thanks...Charles Lee Jones 1827-1897 was my 2nd GGF and I am on our local genealogy board and found tons missing info on my families and trying to work on direct my line also cousins like Barnes family..thanks again Keith
Yes, I am a descendant of Davidson Alexander Underwood, and of John Terrell McCain (another of the sites you manage, and which is awaiting some edits I have submitted). But I'll have to decline accepting the management of any find-a-grave sites, since I do and have done detailed research on 240+ families that represent my children's heritage, which consumes all my spare time. So far I've compiled 32 volumes and a total of about 18,000 pages, and am still working on it.
Some examples of the research and documentation I do can be found here:
The issue is which memorial to link to as D.A. Underwood's father.
On the one hand, memorial #132995599, is for a known grave, with an original grave marker still extant, in an existing cemetery, in the same county (Stanly County, NC) in which it is known that D.A. Underwood was born, and in which it is known his mother died.
On the other hand, memorial #111381842, is for an alleged grave, with no marker, in a cemetery that no longer exists, about 775 miles from Stanly County.
Both graves are allegedly for a John Underwood who died in 1841. One can be verified, the other cannot. Neither man can really be proved to have been D.A. Underwood's father.
