Bio and Links
Bio Photo I would love to build the biographies (original stories) of any of the memorials I manage. So please feel free to send me what you would like me to add. Do not forget to write if and how you would like to be noted as a credit for the information... Name, partial name, handle, etc.

I am happy to cut and paste anything exactly as you send it to me so long as NO LIVING person is mentioned in the update. If it is not my Direct line, I am happy to Transfer once I have tried to get any valuable clues about my direct line. Please do not post obituaries on my memorials.

I am so thankful for the rewarding contacts I have made through Find A Grave. Several are family I never new I had. And they are wonderful.

I am glad for all those that I have been able to work with so far and for all those who I will be able to work with in the future. If I have not done something to your liking then please contact me as I wish to be respectful to all who work so hard to make Find A Grave what it is.
I promise I work with anyone who contacts me appropriately.

Best Wishes to all and God Bless.

RE: stewart etc.
Thanks very much. I was related to Caleb, but didn't really know him. His mother, Hannah, was Henderson's sister. Henderson/Hense was my great-grandfather. I'd be glad to share any info that I might have. You can email me at, if you want. Thanks!

Lewis Jay Lay
Hi April.

I was wondering how you were related to Lewis Jay Lay. I believe him to be my great grandfather. There is a little mystery behind this part of my family tree.

Thank you,
Jennifer Lay-Penne

Lay Ancestors
I saw that you were a descendant of the Lays and was wondering if you are on the Lay Family Geneological Society FaceBook page? IT is a nice place for Lays to connect. There is also the Lay DNA project on Family Tree DNA that collaborates with the National Geographic Society"s DNA project
Hope to see you on one of them,
Katherine Lay Breite

RE: Arie Mays
I hope my edits will help you through your brick wall with Arie McNeil Mays. Earl and Arie had a son James Mays that passed away May 12 2016. I will give you the link to his obituary. Maybe you can get the information you need to add him happy hunting. Thank you for all the work you have done to contribute to

Arie Mae Mays
Are you directly related to Arie Mays 47836442? If not would you mind transferring her memorial? I am not directly related but am distantly related. I have some information I would like to add. Some that needs to be changed. I would greatly appreciate it if you would. Thank for your time and the work you do.

Pvt John W McHugh
THANK YOU for sending me "edit" to add his wife; would you be so kind as to send me your (source(s)?
This does 2 things: 1. Almost 1/2 of edits I've gotten are incorrect or the source was hearsay (e.g., on Internet gen sites, but info was old/abandoned). Based on our own biopage, I'd bet you fully understand, as you, too, want correct info on those you've posted.
2. As I'm writing a book on those buried with John I'd like to credit/list source(s) in that.
THANKS again for you info; looking fwd to your response,
