|Bio and Links|
I was "made" in Hutchinson, Kansas, but born in Kansas City, Missouri. My parents' families were mostly pioneers who settled in south-central Kansas starting in 1871. They were from somewhat mixed backgrounds, but a good many of them had their roots in colonial America in Massachusetts, New York and Connecticut.|
I started doing my family tree in October 2011, not really expecting to find much. It's been a fascinating journey, uncovering the lives and origins of my family's roots. Find-A-Grave is mostly a place to honor your family, ancestors and friends, but it's also been a big help in confirming and cementing my findings. Among my ancestors were 8 Mayflower immigrants (twice from William Brewster and his wife, Mary), Rev. John Davenport (founder of New Haven, CT), Gov. Thomas Roberts, founder of New Hampshire (Dover Colony), Lt. Gov. Stephen Goodyear of New Haven, CT, Martha's Vineyard founder and governor, Thomas Mayhew, Plymouth Colony governors William Bradford, Thomas Prence and Edmund Freeman. I have 5 ancestors from the Hobarts of Hingham, MA on both sides of my family (Edmund Hobart, his wife, Margaret Dewey and their children, Rev. Peter, Nazareth and Thomas). A few ancestors were involved in the witch and demon hysteria of Puritan New England. A couple of them were Indian fighters and a few were Native Americans. I have ancestry among the rulers of multiple countries. There were a few dutch settlers on Long Island, including the Van Tassels who moved from there to Sleepy Hollow, NY. So, this has definitely not been a boring endeavor as I had expected.
The information and photos Finda-A-Grave volunteers provided have been totally invaluable, and I really appreciate what they've done. I have been doing landscape, scenic and historical photography for quite a few years as a hobby, so I decided to chip in and contribute to this site as well. I live in the beautiful and historic state of Virginia in the Fredericksburg area, and have a access to a lot of historic graves and buidlings. My sons, Erik and Kris often accompany me on our outings - it's a great thing for us to do together, and I appreciate the opportunity to get out with them on a "mission".
Feel free to contact me if you'd like to have any photos of the area or if you have any info or corrections for me. I try to respond to photo requests in my area within limits of my work hours, etc. I'd be happy to take photos for anyone, regardless of whether I get credit for it or not. This is a hobby I do this to help other people, NOT for competition. My photos are totally shareable with other websites (Ancestry.com, etc.), so feel free to use them for any honorable purposes; that's what I take them for. If I'm helping you, I'm happy :). I welcome any correspondence from anyone on findagrave, though it may take a while to get back to you.

|Mike Brown||DeWitt - Goolsby families|
Greetings from Bolivia, South America. Tonight I notice your info on the Goolsby family of Kansas. I am a descendant of the DeWitt family, Sarah Jane (DeWitt) Goolsby being a sister of my ancestor. Let's exchange info and see if we can help each other! I have a fair amount that I'll gladly forward on to you.

I see your photo request for this CSA soldier. There are no local records that I can find that indicate that Charles rests here. From past experience, the records for this cemetery are somewhat incomplete. . . and Scott is very good about his submissions to F/G.
If you have any information of other family members that may rest in this, or nearby cemeteries, that may provide a lead for me to follow, please contact me directly.
|Charlene Birt Raddon||RE: Birts of NY|

|Barbara Pryor||George Clarence Deihr, Jr|
I appreciate this photo so much. Would you please add the same photo to memorial #71214560 - Catherine R Deihr (his wife)?
It was great to talk to you Saturday, another fellow "dead" hunter...lol. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help in finding your cemetery, but I'm definitely going to ask around and see if I can find you some answers. I'm hosting our 2nd annual Taylor's Mountain Descendents' Homecoming on April 20th and alot of people from this area will be there and I'm going to ask around and see if anybody knows where it is. I'll also post it on my Taylor's Mountain Descendents Facebook page...maybe somebody out there knows exactly where it is. Have a wonderful week!

Headstone picture is on line at Find A Grave. I dont know if you were the one I e-mailed a couple of day ago or not. I remembered seeing a headstone with Eastman on it so I walked until I found it again. Hope it helps.
|Lynn Ellsworth||Pat Gwartney|
Thanks, Steven for posting photo of my Brother-in-Law's grave at Laurel Hill, Spotsylvania, VA. Pat was one of the best men I've ever known.
Steven email me if you didn't get my messages. Cger
