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. Focus as of 11/9/2014 will be to review current memorials created, complete data as to birth, date, place, etc and to link/find parents, siblings or family. Just as in life, every memorial should be linked to family. And "friends" keep those edits coming my way as it helps so much identify all the folks at rest. 12/9/2015 working on names ADAMS, NORTON and ATER and related families in the Lexington Kentucky Cemetery.

RE: Antonia Willard Ford - Fairfax Cemetery
Anne, I don't know if this will help you.

Charles Fleming Ford Jr, was son of Captain Charles Fleming Ford, who served in the War of 1812. Captain Charles Fleming Ford SR was the son of Edward Ford who married Elizabeth Keith. One of their sons was John Ford. My records show that John Ford married Lydia Fowler and later married Mary Fannie Pritchett(?)Maybe this name is misspelled.

Antonia Willard Ford - Fairfax Cemetery
Anne, I am trying to do some genealogy research and came across the Antonia Willard Ford gravestone at Fairfax Cemetery. You have a comment showing that her cousin Edward Randolph Ford born 1859 was son of Charles Franklin and Rebecca August. I am pretty sure this actually should be Charles Fleming Ford (Jr) and Rebecca Ann (Wright) Ford. Charles Fleming Ford later married Susan Ann Carroll Ford and they are both buried in the Clifton Cemetery. Lu Fischer

Ilgenfritz Headstone
Old Springfield Cemetery
New Middletown
Mahoning County
Ohio, USA

Edit Virtual Cemetery info [?]

Find A Grave Memorial# 47469349

I research the Ilgenfritz family and would like to get more info on this headstone.

I am thinking it could be from a member of this family:

John A. Ilgenfritz Sr.
1784 1860

Mary Catharine Fink
1785 1874

Frederick Ilgenfritz
1810 1863

George Ilgenfritz
1812 1901

Elizabeth Ilgenfritz
1815 1881

Hanna Ilgenfritz
1821 1821

Ruffina Ilgenfritz
1821 1821

John A. Ilgenfritz Jr.

Catharine Ilgenfritz

Most of them are accounted for. This one might be one of the missing children.

If you get a chance to check I'd appreciate it.

I'm pleased those special families will be known from the information you provide to their memorials. It was quite an experience clearing the soil away and seeing the beautiful script and learning about cholera in Lexington at that time. I know they are in good hands. I didn't have a computer or Ancestry at that time. :) Darla

I did the same thing for an uncle of mine, James McCahon (Find A Grave #Find A Grave Memorial# 101777005). Was a VERY long journey through a lot of red tape to secure a memorial stone for him. Can you believe the government questioned "no body" ????? Good grief. At last, James has a stone and a military dedication. Please visit his memorial page. Kimberly
