Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi! (I usually update memorials per requests once a month) If I do not seem to be responding to your request please send me another. I have grandchildren now and get distracted:).I am so grateful for the Find A Grave research and photos already available. I hope to make it easier for others like myself who are separated by distance from those they need information on. In itself this act brings great comfort to many. Thank you to all those who contribute.No need to ask permission to copy my FAG headstone photos. Go ahead and copy the headstone photos you need. Please let me know if I need to make a correction. I just ask that you please be patient if you want to add something to one of my ancestors. I will need time to check it out first which may include a trip to the cemetery and home town archives. My family names that I research are: Ross, Baskett, Bridges, Hayward, Wilson. Pittman, Brooks,Ryan, Wallis,Wallace, Beesley, Lamb, Knight. 4 my kids:Sutton, Protzman, Blose, Sybert, Rumbaugh. 4 my cousins: Angel, Baumgardner, Poe, SmallwoodAfter DNA testing with I most often connect with these family names: Hayward/Howard, Ross, White, Boyd, Davis, Williams, Jones, Wilson, and Smith.

Thomas Axtell
In Mariah Axtell Hosick's FINDAGRAVE it states that someone has the bible that belonged to Thomas Axtell, her father. Is this you?

Thomas Axtell is my 3rd Great Grandfather and his son and Mariah's brother, Thomas Chalmer Axtell, is my 2nd Great Grandfather. I have tried to find additional information on him.

We visited the Rural Dale Cemetery and took a picture of his first wife, Martha Williams Axtell, grave; but, could not locate one for Thomas Chalmers Axtell. I wonder if he was buried with Martha.

Thanks for any information you can give me.

Relative of Carrie Hayward
Hi Sherry- thanks for all your work on the Hayward family. My grandmother Dorothy Smith was adopted from the New York Foundling Hospital in 1895 at the age of 2. Her birthdate was 9/25/1893)and her parents were Carrie Hayward and James Smith. Carrie was born in 1873 and I am pretty sure is the same Carrie who later became Carrie Bridges. I don't know the circumstances of her birth but we have a copy of her birth certificate and it lists Carrie's age as 20 and the father's age as 30. Would love to connect with you! Jackie Kerr

Sarah Baker
Don't change anything yet, something is not right the census is for 1850 and if she married a Jackson Ryan in 1849 in Illinois, and Sarah was in Missouri in 1850, something is wrong, I want to check on some more information.

RE: Sarah Jane Baker
I am related to the Baker's, know nothing about Sarah Ryan's family. I do have a lot of information on my Baker Families. Sarah's father James Baker was my 3rd Great Grandfather's brother. My family was Larkin Baker, and their parents were Baxter Baker and Sarah Hill. They moved to Illinois from Tennessee.
If you want anymore information email me at Do you have anymore information on Sarah Baker Ryan?

Baxter P. Baker and Rosannah were the youngest of seven children born to Mary Prater Baker West (Joseph West was her husband). They, however, were infants when their father died so their mother left them with the Carter-Glendenning family to raise. Imagine she just didn't have the resources to tend to the younger children without a husband in the 1840s. James Baker Father of seven children died abt. 1845, in Gentry, Missouri.

RE: Kilgore
You have done a fine job with the memorials, but if I think there is something more I can add I will either let you know or let you transfer them to me. I may have photos of the Kilgore grandparents and if so, I can post them anyway. Thank you so much!
