RE: Hise brothers
Gary -

You are, of course, welcome to any information that I have. Since this is not my line, I have not committed the time to research that it deserves. If you would like an invitation to my family tree on ancestry, let me know and I will include you.

RE: Lamb Cemetery
Hi Gary,

If you come into Ridgway on Main Street, turn south on Karber Street and go four blocks to Sycamore Street. Turn left and go to the edge of town and Lamb Cemetery will be on the right side of the road. Alot of the stones are down in the cemetery and just stacked to one side, but it's better now than when I was young because it was all grown over then. Does this help you?

RE: Leonard Hise 1756-1845
Gary -

Thank you for your lovely note. During the last two years, I have been working on a project to preserve the integrity of the participants of the Battle of King's Mountain. There has been so much misinformation posted online that it has become imperative to do so.

As I was collecting information, I realized the burial sites of most of the Heroes were unknown. Some sites were known, but the memorials on Find A Grave made no mention of the battle, while some
Patriots were credited erroneously as having fought in the battle. I have worked diligently to rectify the situation: you have access to my Virtual Cemetery. I have read thousands of the Applications for Revolutionary War Pension and find them fascinating. Many people complain that my memorials are too long. My answer is that no one has to read the whole bio: they can quit reading when the bio becomes too long for them.

My discoveries have not been popular with everyone. Family myths have been passed from generation to generation, so people do not want to accept certain truths and I receive many negative messages. I remind the authors of those messages that it is not I who has dispelled the myth, but their own ancestors in their words.

I particularly enjoy uniting family on Find A Grave. I have transferred the Memorial of your ancestor, Leonard Hise, and those of his brothers, Conrad, George, and Jacob. You will treat them with the respect they deserve. The memorials are incomplete: they need to have the family information added and you are more qualified than I to make the additions.

Again, thank you for your encouragement: it is much appreciated!

RE: Hises
Thank you Gary, but without the help of all those online and family members, what I do would not have been possible. Hope life is treating you well. Thanks for all you have done. Dee

RE: Thomas Climo
I'm not sure, but there was definitely a request for him when I reported the problem. Regardless, we now know where he is actually buried! Regards, Rebecca

RE: John Abraham #98985761
Yes you may. Might I ask if you are related? He is my 2x great grandfather. Just wondering if we might be distantly related?

Gary:

Not sure how I came up with that. I would appear that it should be Martin, not Andrew.
Do you agree?
