Bio and Links
Bio Photo Recently there was a glitch at Find a Grave; contributors were not notified when a photo request had been completed. I was not able to send a note of thanks because I did not know the photo had been posted. PLEASE accept my thanks now.
So many people have been very helpful to me; thank you for your ongoing support! I know many researchers will appreciate our efforts.
I enjoy family history, it is like solving a large puzzle. I am still working full time so the hours I have to take pictures and add them are limited.
I have mostly added only family members in the past. There are several cemeteries Scrubgrass Stone Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Big Bend Methodist Church Cemetery, North Washington Union Cemetery, Annisville (New Salem) Cemetery, Mt. Varnum, Prairie, Allegheny, Pleasant Valley and East Unity Presbyterian Church Cemetery that are now completely added to Find a Grave (or at least as complete as I could find records). I have many family members buried in these cemeteries. I will do my best to update the other cemeteries.
I like to travel and often visited many of these cemeteries. I hope to visit them again soon.

George Cooper Wells
Hi! Thank you for letting me know that I had inadvertently put the year of birth for George Wells (91108877) as 1893 instead of 1873. I fixed it and am glad that you noticed it.

RE: Joseph Gist
Thanks for the clarification on the Joseph Gist memorial. I did remove the photo that contained the foot stones as you suggested.
Take Care,

Kathryn Patton
Hi Jo

Kathryn Patton's headstone was hidden inside a very large Rhododendron bush. I spent over an hour cutting it out and disposing of the cuttings. I'll delete the current pics on her memorial after the headstone dries out and I can get a better final shot.
On another note I'm currently documenting the entire Concord Cemetery. Going row by row, so nobody gets missed. I've added 450 memorials and over 500 pics in the last week.Hopefully I'll be able to fill all the photo requests. Currently I'm through about 60% of the cemetery. If you need anything while I'm in that area let me know. I'll do what I can.

Mary Beulah Parker
Hi Jo,
If you happen to run across Mary Beulah Parker, she is the missing child from George Washington Parker and Elizabeth Ann McQuiston Parker. I figuare she is going to be in the area there somewhere, as the rest of the family is.
Thanks for all of your help

RE: Mary Parker Hunter

James Johnson McGinnis is my 3rd great grand father. Then Samuel and then Harvey.

My understanding is Jennie was born in Venango County but I don't have a lot on her parents yet. I did get to meet her when I was around 4 years old. She died before my next trip which was 2 years later.

Thanks Again and have a good weekend.
