Born in Killeen, Texas, Live between Johnson City and Dripping Springs, Texas. A US Army Viet Nam Veteran, served three years, ninteen months in Thailand Signal Corp. Spent 37 years as a teacher and swimming coach, working in Austin, just out of the University of Texas in January 1974, Weslaco, Corpus Christi, Houston, and the last ten years in Laredo, Texas (2001-2011). Just getting started in FAG and am excited about what I can do for others looking for ancestors and relatives. My goals in using Find A Grave are to bring in depth ancestry to all my relatives that are memorialized on Find A Grave. I am not into NUMBERS of memorials I establish. When looking at cemeteries where my family members are buried, I do try to record memorials when I find some headstones, in some cemeteries, that are not memorialized on FAG. I have taken photo requests, but have found that those requests were not found in the cemeteries in my area of Texas. I am also handicapped due to lack of high speed internet where we live. I use the Dripping Springs Library to upload photos and perform most of my Ancestry and Find A Grave work.
Dennis Ralph Shoaf I enjoy genealogy so always look at the name Shoaf. Sorry I never had the pleasure of meeting this family. According to Family Tree Maker civil: Canon: 6 it says I am half 4th cousin once removed. We share the earliest Shoaf relative I have in my tree. Find a grave has his parents and brother listed. I also have a brother, Dennis R. Shoaf that served in Vietnam. Thank you for the kind words you left on find a grave. Carol
I can't add any information to what you already have and don't know about the two Jane McLeans. I am not related to the family. If I have any of your McLean ancestors in my memorials, just let me know which ones and I will transfer them to you.
RE: James Leslir photo I do use Ancestry.com for researching and entering most data for my LAMM tree. Church records for that era are usually the most helpful, at least are for PA, from where I originated & the state with which I have the most research experience. Most all people were affiliated with a church in the 19thC. Also, there are online death certificates for PA, but only from 1906-1963. Pennsylvania’s Department of Health started keeping statewide death records on January 1, 1906. I'm not sure which death records are "out there" for the TN county research you want. Our PA county of Berks has online records for births, deaths, marriages, wills. etc. These are just references to the event; you must go to the county office to obtain the actual record.
I'm located in Monroe County; not sure where Rutherford is located. TN is a long state like PA, both w/lots of Counties with varied ways of allowing "public" information. Best regards, April in TN
McLeans I transferred management on several McLeans but I kept Marshall M and Emma as they are my husbands great, great grandparents. I went ahead and transferred William since there are so many siblings that you might be connected to, also.
RE: THE ANGUS R. MACDONALD FAMILY MEMORIALS Mr. Watson, I am so sorry I have not made the edits that you requested. I have been working long hours and have not been on Findagrave in a few weeks so I did not notice the edit requests that were listed. I did go in and make quick edits that I received through email when possible but just didn't notice the edits on the findagrave page. I am going to transfer the McDonald family to you since they are your relatives and they deserve to have a loved one watching over their memorial. I am so sorry for my error, Connie
