I am a retired grandmother and am picking up the family ancestry research where my parents left off. I love the researching and want to leave a complete record for my grandchildren. If I can help someone else in the same quest, I am most happy to assist and share.
My main families of research are Coburn, Ackerman, Fulton, Eutsey, Hiller, Hagler, Lytle, Harbison, Richards, Campbell, Beckey & Mayo.
RE: Mary Ellen (Hagler) Etherson-Hiller; Oakland Cemetery Sondra, you're very welcome, I enjoy it so much. I haven't "seen" you here in awhile, did you get the messages I sent you on the wife of Isom Hagler--Mary E. Robinson at Lipe cemetery? She is not "Mary Ellen Robinson" daughter of Urbane and Penelope Robinson--I found that Mary Ellen buried with her parents at Dutch Ridge. She died very young, single and childless before your "Mary E. Robinson" married your Mr. Hagler. So, the stone in Lipe is for your Mary E. Robinson, and that's why her dates didn't match up to what you thought or expected. I added the photos to both of them. You can change the "no stone" note on your Mary E.'s page, and also remove the note that she is the daughter of Urbane and Penelope. Their daughter's marker, right next to them in Dutch RIdge has her dates and also clearly says "daughter of Urbane and Peneleope". Hope this information helps. Thanks again for your kind words.
RE: Hiller ~ South County Line Cemetery You're welcome, as always. Please look at the memorial I made in that cemetery for Hugh Taggart. I'm pretty sure he is your Hugh Tygett. Perhaps he registered for the War of 1812 under the name Taggart, so that's what his military stone says (?) It's a newer stone, he has an old one that I am going to try to read again when I go out there today in different light. If you agree this is the same man, I will delete my entry and you can change yours to reflect the new birth year and name and I will add my photo to yours. (Looks like you just made a typo in his birth year, as it's unlikely he was born in Ireland in 1799 but married at 15 years old in Alabama in 1814 to a woman 13 years older than him) What do you think? Is this your guy?
RE: Gayer Family ~ McPherson Cemetery Dear Sondra, Thank you so much for your kind words. It was my pleasure to photograph your Gayer family. I'm glad they came out well, many of my McPherson photo's were very dark. It was bright and sunny when I left Wichita and when I arrived at McPherson it was dark, cloudy and cold. Mother nature does not cooperate with me on the weekends when I go graving.
