I am interested in the following family names: Farquhar, Stearns, Wininger, Bovee, Archibald (Scotland), Rorick, Green, Greene, Rogers, Porter, Beach, Silas, Elliott, Kennedy, Baldwin, Slater, Shauger, Moore, Cole.
Correction request: Could you update this memorial for Timothy (Record added: Nov 30, 2012 Memorial# 101540480) to reflect his correct information. I was going to just make a new name but better to correct the old one properly. His name is Timothy Losey born 1791 and died May 30th, 1842 and was married to Prudence Rorick Losey (memorial #11041465) also created by you. I uploaded a clear photo of the two pieces of his stone. Thanks for helping FindAGrave.com -Nate
RE: Samuel Rorick I'm 95% sure James Rorick's mother's name was Elizabeth Mickley, or Mackley....still trying to find out which. Elizabeth for sure, though. There was a Samuel Rorick who died in Sussex Co, NJ in the early 1800's who may have been Elizabeth's 1st husband, James's father. There was an inventory of his will made when he died. I've ordered the microfilm from Salt Lake to see if perhaps it mentions his wife's name. If it was her, then presumably she remarried someone named Mickley or Mackley. By 1840 she is again a widow and living with James. By 1853 James, his new wife, this Elizabeth (his mother?) and his kids moved to Ft. Wayne. In 1858 James and Elizabeth are named in a lawsuit over a debt involving a horse. Elizabeth and James are ordered to sell some property they owned which she had purchased in 1855 in order to settle the debt. There is a record of a woman named Elizabeth Mackey buried in the same cemetery as James and is wife. Probably it's his mother. I'm trying to connect her with the Rorick clan of Sussex County, and it might through this Samuel Rorick.
Samuel Rorick Hello Margaret, I'm writing to you about Samuel Rorick, 11041501, to see if you have any genealogical info on him. I think he may be the missing link between the Roricks of Sussex Co, NJ and James Madison Rorick of Allen Co, IN....I think Sam might be James' father. Thanks!
Child Ephraim Baldwin Hi Margaret, I was just out to Old Morenci Cemetery taking photos and I set up one for 2 year old Ephraim Baldwin, with photo. I was just about to link him to his parents when I noticed there's a memorial for him at Oak Grove. There is stone data in Gravestone Records of Lenawee by Harriet Cole Bowen records copied 1938 and also in Old Morenci transcription of records read in 1996 by Walter and Mary Teeter http://files.usgwarchives.net/mi/lenawee/cemeteries/m65201.txt
It says "not found" on the Teeter list but I just happened to see it yesterday when I was taking a photo request for John Lammon, which is nearby.
Hamiltons at Medina Yes that's what the Harriet Bowen DAR records indicate. I am always looking to find soldiers unmarked, DAR members, stones out of place, etc. That Hamilton stone is so dirty I went out there many times and thought it was missing. Then one day I was just standing there and the sun was just right and I saw the name Susannah. I quit taking photos over summer but I took some at Hudson today. I know Morenci has a long list! maybe someday I'll get some copies of the DAR records and that will make them easier to locate and read. But like I said I have to go work once in awhile. That and I am not sure my ancestry will check out! I would like to investigate graves for DAR even if I don't qualify for membership, perhaps at some point (when I can retire for real :) If it weren't for the Harriet Bowen DAR records I wouldn't be able to find anything. We are indebted to her for all the work she did.
Hamiltons at Medina Village Hi again Margaret, I am wondering if a woman like this can be recognized (marked?)by the DAR if her lineage checks out properly? Find A Grave memorial 105739833 Susannah Hamilton.
George Acker #35551481 Hi Margaret. You sent me an email asking me to remove the flowers and message from George's memorial. I can't do that, you have to. Just click on the flowers and you will see one of the options is to delete your offering.
