Brave heroes and heroines!
Their graves shall yet be found,
And monuments shall mark their dust,
As sacred earth and ground."

Daugherty legacy
Hello I am researching my fathers family. His name was patrick Daugherty and passed in 2013. I saw you had posted pics on my great-great-great-great grandmother Elizabeth Grauel Sayler 1811-1893.

Are we related?

Susan McLaughlin
Hi, Cathy, it's me again,hoping this msg finds you well. I have a "knot" on my tree and think you might know about it. In Leslie McLaughlin's Our Book of Finley's and their Kinfolk Families, on page 311 there is mention of a Hannah Wierman who might or might not have been married to our Edward Gaffney. I cobbled her onto my line and lo and behold, if I have actually the right person, she is the mother-in-law of Dolly Madison.......who was previously married to a Todd, an atty from Philly. (I think).

Could you please go my tree and take a peek. Not sure how to contact you on so chose this venue.
Susan McLaughlin (sister of Leslie the author)

Charles "Oscar" Wilkins
Is Charles your ancestor? If so I wonder if you have any additional information on the family. My great grandfather was an adopted child of Thomas and Cynthia Welbourn of Anita Iowa. Alva died young and under tragic circumstances. There is a newspaper article that states he was the son of Oscar Wilkens, and that he came to live with the Welbourn's at the age of three. I am trying to connect Alva with his biological parents as well.

Henry Travis Maynard
I was just reading your memorial page for Henry. My great-great grandfather was Henry's brother, Abraham, buried in Hampshire, IL. I was wondering if you have any info on their parents, Isaiah & Esther (Travis) Maynard. Another contributor sent me a link for an Esther Travis Maynard buried in Orth Cemetery, Boone County, IL. I was unaware that either of the parents came to Il. but I guess this is possible as I read that Henry lived in Belvidere for a time. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks, Melanie Howe

RE: I greatly appreciate your help!
I also added the description to the Cemetery page itself. It was based on some of the notes you have on his memorial. If you want more added, let me know.
