Bio and Links
Bio Photo Findagrave has added a wonderful feature that allows memorial holders to update many requests at a time, but only if done via the Edit tab --- so please try that before leaving information on the profile page! This new feature is a true blessing.

Thank you for visiting!

My mother, Mary Edith "Meg" Stevens and I, were/are long-time supporters of Findagrave -- a wonderful site to place memorials and do research. She sadly passed away in May of 2013, but her love of genealogy and helping others find their family, lives on.

One of my interest areas is the American Revolution. Please feel free to visit my page on Facebook and assist in the research.

I also welcome you to follow my weekly blog at GenealogyBank or to follow me on Twitter.

Thank you. I wish you success in your family research.



If you wish to download one of my tombstone pictures, you may do so for personal usage and should give proper credit.

Photographs of individuals absolutely require permission, and if lifted from here without appropriate permission or credit are subject to licensing fees.

Obits under copyright should be summarized, or cannot be posted (many less than 72 years, or longer if a newspaper renewed the copyright.)

Please follow Findagrave guidelines to be within a few generations and a direct descendant. For older ones, please communicate the reason.

As the number of memorials I manage increases, I sometimes elect to transfer without being asked. If you received a transfer and do not wish to manage it, please transfer back.

You seem to have quite a bit of info on Silas Stewart of Decatur Co Indiana, so I'm hoping there is a connection & you may know more than this shows. Silas & Jacob have (rarely) been listed as Steward, which is one of my family names - but that isn't my main interest right now. They helped begin the Methodist Church in Decatur county along with John & Jared P. Ford & their wives. John is my husband's ancestor & I have been trying for years to learn the names of his parents as well as the connection between him & Jared P. (who is not the son of Jarrett & Elizabeth Terrill Ford, & whose wife might or might not have been Elizabeth Campbell). If you know anything or can put me in touch with someone who does, I would surely appreciate it and would be happy to share what I have.

Rachel Peck Posey article re her 1868 death

Thank you for sharing this article. It is short on details but gives a very colorful look at Rachel and her life. Indeed, I also enjoyed it and have added it to Rachel's findagrave memorial.

Ralph Smith 1610 England
Ralph Smith b 1610 had a son b in 1640 and he died in a few days later. He didn't have another son named Ralph.
original Ralph was the s/o John Smyth and Grace unk.

Ralph was always in trouble with the law in Massachusetts with warrants for this and that and court apperances'

Some are saying that all of the children are Grace but I haven't found any for her.

Van Syckel Transfer
Thank you for transferring the tribute of Mrs. Mary Townsend (nee Van Syckel) and her husband, Richard. I appreciate it very much.

Would it be too much to also ask for the transfer of Mary's sister, Sarah (#108874919)? I see that you manage her tribute as well. I certainly understand if you choose to not transfer.

Please let me know if you need any research assistance in Northern California.

Thanks again,
Jeannie #46972727

Caroline King was the grandmother to my grandmother, Irene Rachel King Gatley. I have the original deed to Caroline's grave site at Mt. Vernon Cemetery. Thank you for all of the time, work, and energy it takes to do this.

David Olmstead 107750233
Hi again - just wanted to let you know that I've confirmed that the original cemetery records state that the David Olmstead buried at Elmwood in Burlington passed away and was interred in 1805. Also wanted to let you know that he is the only Olmstead that was interred here. The Sarah Olmstead that you created a memorial for in Elmwood was married to Elijah Olmstead per your bio; they were both buried in Middlebury, Vermont (Vermont vital statistics records). In any case, no one named Sarah Olmstead was interred at Elmwood. - Deb
