Bio and Links
I am over 40 years old. I am looking for family members like Harrison,Lowes,Ott,Gailey,
Cox,Ketchum,Balliet. This also includes related families. I also create memorials of family members, yet exceptions will be made. I am interested in an exchange of information from others whom might be related to the graves I manage.
If you find you someone related to you.I will be glad to transfer, and if you find a duplicate please let me know along with the FAG# and correct FAG#. I also like to thank the various FAG#,Ancestry, and Rootsweb members for their help.I sometimes forget where I get my information, and sometimes I am unable to contact members.

RE: Harry G Kirkpatrick(1892-1976) # 104945134
Sorry, I am not related to the Kirkpatrick's. Victor Valley Memorial Park is my local cemetery and I entered some memorials there a few years ago. I did do some research on him and linked him to his parents. I would be happy to add any additional information you might have to his memorial.

RE: Justis and Betty Gibbs.
Good Evening -

You had asked a question regarding the relationship to the Ketchum family. My husband's grandmother was Margaret Ann Spafford, (1859-1924). Margaret's parents were Mary Eliza Ketchum and Alva Spafford.
The Ketchum lineage -
Mary Eliza Ketchum (1831 - 1882 Athol, Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada) was the daughter of
Amanda Thompson and James Ketchum - James Ketchum was the son of
Elizabeth Haukinson and Thaddeus Ketchum - Thaddeus Ketchum was the son of
Rachel Boughton and Thaddeus Ketchum, Sr. - Thaddeus Ketchum, Sr. was the son of
Mary Sherwood and Ebenezer Ketchum - Ebenezer Ketchum was the son of
Sarah Wakelee and Nathaniel Ketchum - Nathaniel Ketchum was the son of
Mercy Lindall and Joseph Ketchum - Joseph Ketchum was the son of
Sarah Salmon and Edward Ketchum (abt 1590 - June 1655 Stratford, New Haven, CT)

The Ketchum and Spafford families were earlier settlers in the US before going to Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada.
If you are a member of, search for Percy Roy Clark Barnes. Find the family tree named FRED and look for Percy's ancestors, which will include the Ketchum lineage.
Are you and Fred related?
Thank you for your message. Nice hearing from you.

RE: Gibbs Transfer
You are welcome. Since I thought you were asking about the photo you should have the memorial of Justis. Have a wonderful summer!

My husband is related to the Ketchum family. Perhaps this is the connection? Edna Cleo

Please feel free to use the photos. We have no other information. The photos were located in an old photo album that I believe was my husband's grandmothers. Most of the pictures have no names, so we were glad to see a name on these pictures. Best wishes. Nice hearing from you. Edna

RE: Craig Family
Hi, Chris. I've seen your name on Find A Grave, and figured out that your related. Refresh my memory. Are you also related to the Allaman branch? My great-grandparents are Noah Steward Craig and Daisy May Allaman. How are you related to one or both of them?
