Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always had a love for researching and gathering genealogical information on my ancestors and have been doing so for over 30 years! Currently, I can trace two of my family lines back to the year 115 B.C.

My passion now is to create online memorials of my family tree in hopes of connecting with distant relatives and sharing life stories/histories of our common ancestors.

These are my family lines I am currently researching (w/variant spellings):

Headstone Image
Hi Laurie
I got an email from Contributor: Glyn Yeend (#47698531)
Find A Grave contributor Glyn Yeend has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Oliver Pells.
Link to memorial:
Link to contributor profile:
Email address of contributor:

Their suggestion:
This is not the correct media for Oliver. What it is, is the multimedia for his parents. Could you please reply to me confirming my suggestion.

The Image that you took of a Headstone belongs to:

Thomas Pells, Jr Find A Grave Memorial# 148794554
Alice Williams Pells Find A Grave Memorial# 148795016

Not to:

Oliver Thomas Pells Find A Grave Memorial# 90246683
Bessie ROSETTA Birkinshaw Pells Find A Grave Memorial# 90246339
If you could Delete the image from Oliver and Bessie and re-up-load to Oliver's Parent's
Thomas and Alice Pells.
Thank you, Jennifer Palmer #47112292)

Bessie ROSETTA Birkinshaw Pells - Memorial# 90246339
Someone sent me this email to make a correction. Email: Both this memorial and Find A Grave Memorial# 90246683, her husband Oliver Pells, seem to have the wrong headstone photo attached. The picture is of Thomas Pells (1843-1911) and wife Alice W. (1852-1935).

I was researching Bessie Rosetta Birkinshaw and came across this. Oliver Pells was her 2nd husband. Her first was Gordon Hugh Place #7315988. They divorced after 5 kids and he remarried to Virginia Rinehart and moved from Salt Lake City to Staten Island, New York.

Perhaps you could ask the "photo contributor" to find their actual stones. Have a good day either way!
Email Done
Please if you could find the correct Headstone Please!Thanks Jennifer

Emma Locke
Hello Laurie,

Emma Eliza Thorogood Locke was my great-grandfather's sister. Thank you so much for adding her grave-stone---She was married to Clarence A. Locke but I haven't found out where he is buried. I don't know who Philip L. Thorogood is-----Emma's parents were Philip Smith Thorogood and Sarah Jones Thorogood. Sarah died in 1889 and Philip died in 1890--they are both buried near Emma but my cousin said there are no grave-markers visible anymore. Emma was the youngest of six children born to Philip & Sarah.

Keep up the excellent work you are doing on Findagrave.

Most sincerely yours,

Steven Haws
(great-grandson of Thomas John Thorogood born in 1860 died in 1913).

Emma Locke
Hello Laurie,

Emma Thorogood Locke is my great-grandfather's younger sister! You are quite right---she is the daughter of Philip Smith Thorogood (born 1832 died 1890) and Sarah Jones Thorogood (born 1831 died 1889). I don't know who Philip L. Thorogood is. I think it is a misspelled letter.
Emma's parents are in unmarked graves I believe. I've not seen any photographs of any near where Emma is buried.

Clarence A. Locke was Emma's husband but I have no idea where he is buried. I think he died in the 1940s.

Yours sincerely,

Steven Haws
