Their daughter Lola Anna May Ransom, who m. Robert John Lee was his great grandmother. Their daughter Dolores Mae Lee, who m. George Louis Welberg was his grandmother. Their daughter Kathryn Ann Welberg, who m. Donald Francis Frey are his parents. My husbands father passed in 2007, but his mother at 81 years old is doing very well.

Best regards,

Samuel & George Palmer Ransom
Hi John,

My husband is descended from them. After I discovered this during my research, my mother-in-law and sister-in-law used their ancestor Capt. Samuel Ransom to join the DAR.

Are you also a descendant?

Best regards,

RE: McFarland graves at Hawleyville
Not necessary at this time. I just noticed the duplicates when searching for a McFarland. It happens to all of us. Thanks for the offer though.

Rachel McFarland - 58210881
Hi John, It appears that your memorial for Rachel McFarland in Hawleyville Cemetery is a duplicate. Very close - as the other one went up just a month prior to yours : ) It looks like you already (gratiously) added your nice photos to the other memorial, so I'm guessing you should probably delete this one now so we don't have a duplicate. Hope all is well! Thanks!

I am researching Cross, Swingle, and Parrott at this time. You probably knew my parents, Ray and Ethel Cross. My name is Terri L Cross Spencer.

Charles Belknap
I have taken 4 pics of Charles Belknap and his 4 children's graves...I keep trying to get the pics on and they aren't uploading..I am not sure what to do. I go to Browse and then open the pic and it comes into the browser and I click the add photo...but I don't see it on your memorial.

Also....Rehoboth is in Smithfield Township and the town listed for it would be Adena, not Smithfield. We also have some Belknap's at Holmes. My husband and I have restored Rehoboth and are currently working in Holmes along with other cemeteries that we work in with Jeff Co Genealogy Chapter.
I also have a spreadsheet for Rehoboth which is listed on our to Smithfield Twp and then the cemetery... I'll be doing the same for Holmes. Let me know if you would like additional info....
Kind Regards,
Tammy Hosenfeld
