Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am new to Find a Grave, and fairly new in researching my family's roots. I have had good success so far, only a few barriers. Barriers in which I see as challenges. Research has always been pretty easy for me, it has been one of the loves in my life. My main goal hear on Find a Grave, was for the search for family, yet I do believe I could help with contributing to this site when my searching is completed.

Family Roots Earliest finds:

Bishop: 1612 Wymouth, England to death in Piscataway, NJ in 1671

*Christensen: from Denmark in 1882 to New York Co, New York

Lindley: from Lindenleah, Cheshire, England
in 1615 Moved to Ireland in 1678 (Irish Quakers) arrived in York County, PA in 1713

Landers: from England to Plymouth Rock, Mass. early 1635 (Descendant of Luke Landers & Rachael Parrish through their son Tyree Landers)

*Kaspar: from Bohemia, Czech. to New York

Kinson: 1794 - buried in Mt.Pleasant Cemetary, Tolar, TX

Maddox: from Llanfryhach Parrish, Wales England 1644, somewhere between 1644 - 1696 came to the colonies. Finding them settling in St. Mary's County, Maryland.

McMillian: (McMillan)(Scottish/Irish Roots?)Great Great Grandparents, also 3XGreat Grandmother. buried in Mt.Pleasant Cemetary, Tolar, TX

Moore: Great Great & Greater, buried in Mt.Pleasant Cemetary, Tolar, TX

Christensen - Oxford
Sorry you don't have a private contact but I just wanted to mention a Christensen from my high school class is Mayor of Dover, DE.

I see my note that the photo I posted was actually in the background of whatever photo request I was targeting at the time. They were all restricted to around 256K size back then but a clear photo of a much higher resolution is permitted these days.

John Bankhead Parris
Hi Rose,
I just noticed last night that you created a memorial for my gggrandfather, John Bankhead Parris. There is already a memorial for him with the way he spelled his name John Bankhead Paris-#13375709.

My mother was a Parrish and there were three spellings-Paris, Parris, and Parrish.

Maybe you could combine your information onto the other memorial and delete yours so it would not be so confusing.
Are we related?
Thank you,
Cecilia Smith

re: Lonnie Bolt
I am a friend of Lonnie from Blue Springs. was wondering if you have any pics of him? He was a dear friend of my entire family. I was church secretary there for a number of years. The church and land was sold a few years ago, and this year they tore the building down. was a very sad time for me, but I was allowed to salvage some of the bricks from it and plan to make a flower garden with them.
