Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born Annabelle Mary Henderson w/o Jesse Rupert (Columbiana County) and only child born to John Cassell Henderson born Newport, Kentucky and Mary Beaton Jenkins born Glasgow, Scotland. Jesse Rupert is s/o J Vernon Rupert born Columbiana Co, Ohio and Mary Paden.

Only paternal roots in America, I follow a path to Fairfax Co Virginia (grandmother's name Pritchartt).

Some interesting facts discovered about my family:
Henderson, Nevada named after my group.
The Hendersons still operate the oldest family owned Drug Store in America to date called "Henderson's Drug Store" founded 1841 by Osborne Henderson in Glasgow, Howard Co Missouri. The oldest Henderson in my group, lived to be 104, Dr. Joseph Lewis Henderson as did his sister.

I have no biological connection to Ohio and
will transfer any memorial in Columbiana/Mahoning Co Ohio to persons with interest.
I check and work on this daily, update edits and will respond to email/corrections, etc promptly. Please note as I have posted many memorials from the cemetery index volumes, Audrey Allison has brought them to life by walking the cemeteries, photographing and posting headstones to thousands of the memorials. It is a joint effort by many.
Please do not ask for a transfer then "disappear from the face of earth"!

To all who so righteously remind us the primary purpose of Find a Grave is "GRAVE REGISTRATION", and then "boringly" recite in your bio the FAG rules... yes we get it! To the group I work with, (look at my friend's list) it is a mere "starting point" as we all work together, share, and seek to know more about the folks, what they looked like and where they lived as we "register their graves". All of us will go to great lengths to find out more!. .. to sum this up they are "NOT JUST A NAME ON THE A STONE"!

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS THIS YEAR - Two new stones shine from the "Pritchartt" plot in Bellefontaine Cemetery in St Louis Mo for the first time...

May 20, 2014
Placed a military marker on an unmarked grave... After a long search for military records for a great uncle who was a Conf Soldier, and alas, finally secured them and accepted for a military headstone placed on his grave after 114 years beneath an unmarked grave!! He was Pvt John Norvell Caskie. Thanks to Angela Smythe who had an interest in the Caskie family and provided a copy of military record that made this all possible.

Aug 18, 2014 - Stone placed on great grandmother Maria L Bingham Pritchartt's grave who died in 1859 from anemia. Stone is now set in plot St Louis Mo. She has rested for 155 years in an unmarked grave, but that will be no more. I guess that is why I was chosen to do what I do. Amen

I will sponsor a memorial just to have additional photos uploaded.

Thank you so much for the transfer, and you are very welcome for what I said. you are an amazing person, and have done so many wonderful things, I was even reading what you had done to my husband, and even as I read it again, I was amazed at how long those graves had gone unmarked. Your truly are what Find a grave is all about. God Bless You. (oh and be careful getting the picture of the house, I don't want you to get hurt.) You are such an important person, and I hope others are learning, that anything is possible, when you put your heart and soul into it. I hope more people read your bio, It was a joy to read.

I REALLY like your bio ...
... and very much agree with your philosophy.

Find A Grave memorials should try to show what the living person was like; their full names, their likeness, esp. when young adults (which is how most of us visualize ourselves), and their family relationships (links to parents and spouses).

We should celebrate our ancestors' lives and their accomplishments.

That said, we also need very good photos of their headstones to corroborate genealogical data.

E.g., here's my maternal grandmother, Myrtle Holloway Parker

RE: Charles Raymond Spencer

Thank you so much! You have been such a tremendous help. I was so excited when I found him.

I also have noticed date differences. I have a cousin buried in Columbiana Memorial who died in 1954 (have article of his accident and obituary - both dated in January 1954) yet his marker states Jan 1953. I can see because January being the new year a likely mistake.

Thanks again!

Haessly transfers
Thank you for the transfers of the 3 Haessly memorials. It seems the quest is never ending to find out more about these extended family members. Thank you so much for the research you have provided.

Thank you for the Galveston Daily News obituary on him. The addition to his bio took him from ordinary to extraordinary! I am now curious about his illustrations in Texas Siftings and any other publication. Hopefully others will be as well.

Here is what I have listed under John Lockard's memorial. (John & his wife are buried in the same plot with Anna Needham.)
"In 1880 he (John Lockard) is married (1871),35, and living in Clinton twp, Lawrence Co,PA working as a miner with his wife, Mary and a "daughter" Annie who is born 1869, (and on her death record, she says that her father is John Groves, a neighbor in 1880 who is actually her grandfather) so she is John's step-daughter."
I would imagine Anna was illegitimate and that's why she took her grandfather's name and then later her step-father's.

Anna's mother was married to John Lockard who had no children of his own. Apparently Anna considered herself his daughter and took his name.
