|Bio and Links|
As a child I was curious about the background of my family when looking at old photos, and where family members were buried, having made many trips to cemeteries with my mother on our traditional Memorial Day trips. Since I grew up in a neighborhood with many first cousins, along with aunts, uncles, and grandparents, while in grade school I would go around the neighborhood gathering dates of relatives' birthdays to be sure they were all written on a calendar. Guess that may have been the start of my family history recordings. Since 1976, I have been a dedicated researcher, taking trips to Salt Lake, NGS Conferences, Ntl. Archives and DAR Library in D.C., but one of my favorite research projects is as a volunteer helping to collect obits for proof of burial records for cemeteries in my area. Though I research my Hedges/Dieter lines, I have also gotten hooked on researching my husband's Jones/Neal families. I also research all things Kelton but then that is another story. Shirley Jones.|

|Ann Dany||RE: Hannah Hudson Hedges|
You are very welcome. When I think of the 1700's, life had to be very difficult just trying to survive. She is resting on the edge
of a hil, sheltered by large trees overlooking a beautiful golf course in Baiting Hollow.

|Marnie Hawks Thompson||RE: The Ward Family-Punkshire Cemetery|
Thanks for the transfers. I see that you have Calkins, too. I am related to the Calkins through Julia who married a Sweetapple.
|Marnie Hawks Thompson||RE: The Ward Family|
I'd love to see what you can add. My connection to the Ward family is this:
Polly Ward married Rufus Hawks, they are my ggg-grandparents. Rufus and Polly are buried in Punkshire, too. Polly's brother was William, one of the memorials I was hoping you'd transfer.
I have quite a bit on the Wards on my tree on Ancestry, don't know how "distant" you are to the Wards, but if you are interested, I can send you an invite.
Polly and William's parents are Thomas and Susanna Kellner Ward. They are buried in Sardinia Cemetery. I have the drawing that the children made of the monument before it was built along with what each family member paid to have it built - it's really awesome.
If you know anything about the Hawks & Ward families, they were quite well-known residents in and around Holland. They had 5 sons, who all married and carried on the Hawks name. I have Lewis Hawks' diary (Rufus' eldest son) written in 1905 which details the Ward family - births, marriages, deaths ...
Additionally, I have what I fondly call Lewis' "death book", a book that he logged the name, age and death date of all the people he knew. I imagine if you are related to the Wards, you've got some family names in that book, too!
Anyway, I'm rambling. Nice to connect with a "distant" relative - let me know if you are interested in any info I might have.
By the way, I just left a message including a really cute story on David Flemings page (he is related to all the BLOOD families in Punkshire) if you're up for a laugh about cemeteries!
|Marnie Hawks Thompson||The Ward Family|
You have photogrpahed several members of the Ward family in Punkshire Cemetery. I was wondering if you have a cnnection to them? If not, would you consider transferring them to me?

|Ron Roberson||Cloyes in Glenwood|
Today I photographed the grave stone of Katherine Cloyes as you requested, and posted it. Just wanted you to know I also photographed the grave stone of her husband Charles. If you would kindly put out a request for it, I'd be happy to post the photo of his as well. That way I get credit on the site. :-) Thanks!
|Mary MacLeod||RE: Maude Ethel Dieter Finkle|
Thank you, Shirley. I was trying to determine whether there were two George Finkles in Edmonton in 1912, or only one. Since the information about Maude's husband apparently came through her daughter Leah, it appears there was only one. Since you are a distant relative of Maude's you may not be interested, but I'm willing to share more about George Finkle. You can contact me at email@example.com

|Mary MacLeod||Maude (Dieter) Finkle|
Can you tell me where the information about Maude's husband's death came from? Are you related to Maude or did one of her descendants supply this information? Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
|Dianna Steinbach||RE: William & Nancy Neal - Rabbit Hash Cemetery|
This is Dianna, not Nancy, but I also wanted to let you know that the headstones were embedded into the earth, on the ground next to where they should have been standing up. Wanted to let you know just in case you wanted to make the efforts to preserve them, or have them repaired for future generations.
Happy to help anytime.
