Bio and Links
I started searching my ancestors in February 2010 and have gotten hooked! Whenever I am able to locate someone after a long search it feels like such a victory.

I spend a lot of time in the area cemeteries looking for my relatives. It is peaceful walking (or driving around) these cemeteries, a good place for me to unwind and forget the outside world for awhile. The search for these ancestors has become a great adventure.

Researching 10 different families (most in eastern Kentucky) takes a lot of time and patience. When I get stuck on one family I just move on to another for awhile.

Maybe I will have a good picture of my ancestors and be able to leave this information to my family by the time I leave this world.

RE: Martha E. Caudill memorial
I'm sorry Terri, I thought you were the person who asked for Martha Caudill's number so you could check out the info. I lost my glasses and I'm trying to work from readers (bad idea! Lol) so I probably hit reply to the wrong message. Did you message me at all? About any of the memorials I've posted?

I was just thinking: If you don't mind transferring him to me, I'd like that. :)

Gordon Dillow #59619931
Terri, I just happened to find where to see what it was I sent you and saw your note. The email from findagrave only said it was a conflict.

Elizabeth died from childbirth. Richard had other children from a previous marriage and wasn't able to care for a newborn so Elizabeth's parents raised Gordon. He took their surname.

Side note: Richard's previous wife had died soon after giving birth to twins in 1880. He married Elizabeth soon after, I assume because he needed a mother for his children. Elizabeth died two years later.

Another note: Gordon is my great-grandfather. Are you and I related?

Gordon Dillow #59619931
Terri, I just got a message from findagrave that my edit on Gordon Dillow #59619931 had been declined due to conflict of information. I have no record of what I'd sent but it was probably to link him to his father, Richard Swearingen #21949317 as that's the only thing I see missing on his memorial. [Except his mother, Elizabeth Dillow but I haven't located her yet.] Anyway, if you have conflicting information regarding his parents, please let me know. If it was something else, also let me know. I want to be sure my records are correct. Thanks. Vicki

RE: Martha E. Caudill memorial
Martha Ethel Caudill was never married. Caudill IS her name. She was my grandmother's older sister. She raised most of us at some point in our lives. Parents were ill or mothers having babies, Aunt Marthie was always there.

RE: List of Sibbling for Hark Stone #62887310
I've gone ahead and made a memorial for the parents and connected them. When it can't be done, it's nice just to cross reference the siblings by noting them in one another's memorials along with the find a grave # to make it easier for others to connect the dots.
