Bio and Links
Bio Photo My life has involved significant investments of time with my family, church, civic and corporate leadership opportunities.

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. The quest, although challenging, is a fascinating never-ending journey.

By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral research data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper.

And yes - We are all related to Royalty.

Gillispie and Gillespie
B-231-8A NIS (Names in Stone) list Gillispie, Baby (0-2/6/1935) and Jessie Davis Gillispie (9/3/1910-2/2/1935). The burial date was2/5/1935.

H-175-7 NIS list Dans, Jessie A. (0-0) and Baby Gillespie (3/23/1930-3/23/1930). Now that dates are different from those above, my hypothesis is they are two different Memorials because of the different in location.

These are from American Fork. If you could make the corrections there won't be any duplicates. Because I'm making one for baby Gillespie. hawkeye

Alderson Bennett
Hello, Alderson Bennett is my gg-uncle and you have his death date wrong on Find a Grave. My mother has a the original death notice (the letter that is sent to the family edged in black) the letter is dated April 19, 1865. I have a copy if of it if you would like to see it. I believe that he was buried in Mississippi then when the National Cemetery was developed they moved him and several others. Thanks for your help in this matter. Dalene Lawler Royer

Gideon Tirrill & family
Just wanted to let you know that when you get a chance to move Gideon, his parents William & Hannah, and brother Joshua from the Piper Hill cemetery to the Gideon Tirrill cemetery I have their headstone pics and will put them up. Then Connie will remove the "No Stone Found" pics from their memorials she put up when she photographed Piper Hill. (I do understand that you may not get to this until after the busy holiday season).

And like I said in my edit requests Joshua's wife Matilda Chandler also isn't in Piper Hill. Her headstone is in the North Hill cemetery in Stewartstown, which is only a mile or so from the Gideon Tirrill cemetery. I don't know why she wasn't buried in the family cemetery though.

The only one of Gideon's children I haven't been able to find is Sarah E, born about 1828. She is only in the 1850 census.

An added note about the Gideon Tirrill cemetery being in Stewartstown, when they seemed to always live in Clarksville. I am sure this cemetery is probably on their old homestead and is very close to the Clarksville/Stewartstown border. I have a feeling that border probably fluctuated like many others in this area back then and that they never moved... the border did.

Also, have you ever found a death certificate for Gideon Tirrill Sr in 1872? So many people think he died in Canada (which is where his daughter Susie lived)... and they weren't in the 1870 census in Clarksville or Stewartstown... so I was wondering where he actually did die. I can't find one for his wife Abigail in 1876 either.

Have a nice holiday,
Shirley Mitchell

Ethel Hoggard
Curious are you aware you have two sites for Ethel, this one and # 5057008 that you made 13 Sep 2000. You have pictures on both but one has all the family connected. I was looking for ones that need pictures and saw that there were two for her. Sorry if I keep bothering you, just thought you might like to know.
