Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in Find A Grave is due to my passion for genealogy.

I am primarily researching Cohoons/Cahoons of Braintree and Fitchburg who hailed from St. Colomban, Quebec Canada from Scotland. Also, Spates who descend from Johann Julius Specht, a Hessian soldier during the American Revolution who later settled in Nova Scotia and Maj. Samuel Andrews, Loyalist from NC. Also Cass and Proctors families from Nova Scotia to Massachusetts and California and beyond.

In January 2010 I lost my Mum and brother. I enter information into find a grave so my loved ones can be found by long lost family members. I sponsor memorials of family members to show my support of those individuals who have the time, patience and compassion to enter information.

I am from Monument Beach, Massachusetts but live in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. If you are looking for someone in the FWB, etc., Florida area please let me know if I may help you.

RE: Thomas W. Spates Bio #141825224
I believe I am related through his only child with Hannah Nancy Licet Spates, William Anthony Spates(b. 1808). I'm still new to this research and am always wary I am following the wrong line.:) So far, I have Thomas W. Spates > William Anthony Spates (b. 1808)> John Edward Spates(b. 1846)> Mabel Beatrice Spates (b. abt. 1878. She is my paternal great-grandmother. I found your virtual Spates Cemetery helpful in learning about some possible connections. Thank you!

Bio For Thomas William Spates #141825224
Hi there,

Just wondering if the date in this should be 1777 instead of 1877?

His father is Johann Julius Specht and the maiden name of his mother is not recorded. It is believed that Johann and Elizabeth were married in Boston. They met while Johann was a prisoner of war during the American Revolutionary War. He was a wounded Hessian soldier and captured at the Battle of Bennington in 1877. In Boston he was housed in local farms and compensated for his labors during the 5 years he remained a prisoner.

re Florence Coe Morris (bio update)
Here is the updated bio...

Someone sent me an edit that Florence Morris married Frank Elmer Morris ( They have asked that I not post their name, which means sadly you cannot contact them.

I was just giving credit to who submitted the edit. Maybe you might want to look up the meaning of rude.

re: Florence Coe Morris
You sent an edit....I did the edit. I put the edit in the bio with the person who sent the edit, which was you. It isn't stated on the headstone, therefore, it goes in the bio. It wasn't rude, it is factual. I'm sorry you have a problem with it, but if anyone wants to know who sent the edit, they can contact the person who sent it. I only reported the facts as they were sent. Have a nice day.

RE: Clarence Bullerwell
I'm quite sorry. There is absolutely no intention to offend at all. My husband is related to the Stone family. My father-in-law created the markers. I have accepted the edits.

We have not pursued the Bullerwell side at all. The WWI draft registration form seems to have a different birth year than the cemetery marker. If 1876 is the correct year, I'll happily make a note on the memorial.

Earlier on, I had interaction with another find a grave contributor, who questioned sources.

Again, sorry

I noticed the edits for his birthplace and middle name. I was aware of "Canada" but not of the specific place. His wife Ruth Ellen is my husband's aunt. I'm happy to accept the edits if you have a reasonable source. Thanks.

Hi there,

I noticed the edits that you left for Francis Andrews, and took at look at your profile and Andrews cemetery.

You have Andrews in your cemetery that are in my family tree.

You mention in your bio that of Major Samuel Andrews, Loyalist from North Carolina.

Is he the husband of Margaret Woodham Andrews? If so, then we connect at some point in the Andrews family tree.

Looking forward to your reply.
