I think the Findagrave is a valuable tool and enjoy a good hunt! It's really all about all the volunteers that make Findagrave such a success. Also when I learned just how many graves are unmarked as well as how many stones deteriorate over time, I felt I had to do my part to help document those in my family at the very least.

My interest in Findagrave is mostly genealogical. The links are my favorite part because you can just click through the generations and different family surnames to get a great visual of how everyone fits into the family. Recently I have been requesting links with the new edit process which is wonderful BTW! Thanks very much for everyone who has accepted the links and so quickly too!

Surnames: Hardcastle, Kerr, Herbert, Hines, Shaw, Norman, Pate, Thrailkill, Drake, Westcoat, Terrill, Mingin, Small, VanSant.....

Website (UPDATED!): Hardcastle Kinfolks
Ancestry website: My Hardcastle/Kerr Kinfolks

You may use photos I have posted as you wish. Just please credit the photo was taken by Kelly K. Thanks!

I am glad to make transfers if you are directly related, more closely related than I am and that you will be able to contribute more to the memorial. Please click "Edit" and Suggest a correction link to make requests.

I am also happy to add bios. Just please email what you want to add and be specific with names etc so that I may just copy and paste.

RE: Harry Abbott
Here is some more info: on the US 1900 Census, it says Harry and Virginia were married for one year, so again in 1899.

On his WW I Draft Card, 12 Sep 1918, he was married to Rose.

That's as close as I can get it. :)

RE: Harry Abbott
Yes, I know that, but it is still wrong because on the 1910 Census, he and Virginia said they had been married for eleven years, so in 1899.

Maybe the Census-taker meant to write 36 instead of 26? That would have meant he married Rose in 1915, not 1905 (which was impossible). 1915 makes more sense, but I have not found a marriage record for him with Rose. They were together on the US 1920 Census.

In April 1910, Harry was 30 years old, so he was still 30 when his first wife, Virginia, died. He could not have married Rose at the age of 26, as he reported on the US 1930 Census. S.R.F.

Virginia Mae Rumsey Abbot

The US 1910 Census was taken on April 20th. Virginia appeared with Harry and their children. They said they had been married for eleven years. Their last child was born in Dec 1908.

Three months later, on June 29th, 1910, Virginia died.

So, the report on the 1930 US Census is off because Harry was still married to Virginia until 29 Jun 1910.

I don't know why he said he was 26 years old when he married Rose. That can't be true.

RE: Harry T Abbott
Hi! I just sent another message via Edit.

According to the US 1930 Census, Harry was 26 years old when he married Rose. That would be 1905. But he appeared with his first wife, Virginia Mae Rumsey, on the US 1910 Census, with their children. It was on the 1910 Census that they both declared that they had been married for 11 years. That means 1899.

Divorce? I don't know.

I don't remember when Virginia Mae Rumsey Abbott died. I would have to look at my tree and get back to you.

Could you clarify the spouse for this memorial? Is the spouse you sent a second wife, or is the first one incorrect? Thanks, Kathy
