Currently living in Denver, CO. USA. A descendant of 17 Magna Carta Barons. A 12th generation Mayflower descendant, also a Mary Barrett Dyer descendant (13th generation). I have been researching our genealogical lines for about fifteen years.
Current areas of most interest:
Locke and Buckingham families that migrated from Devon, England to USA in the 1800's. Chipman Families in Pennsylvania and Texas USA.
1800's Hudak family of Pennsylvania that migrated from Eperjes, Slovakia now Presov, Slovakia and also Hanusfalu, Szepes, Hungary which is now Hanuovce nad Topľou, Slovakia.
*.¸¸♥ ¸¸.* Dear Ancestor *.¸¸♥ ¸¸.* "Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone It reaches out to all who care It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so. I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you."
Sorry it's taken so long for a response, but I do actually do have a photo of a Sarah Purdys headstone, but her death year is 1972, not 1960, so I'm not sure if it's the same one. Birth year is 1884. I don't see a memorial on Find A Grave for her, so I will add one later on.
Black Friars, Pontefract Hello Lizzie, I noticed you requested photos for Black Friars in Pontefract. I live in Pontefract and that graveyard and church are long gone I'm afraid. I do have a couple of photos of maps showing it's original location if you would be interested. The Valley Gardens are now in it's place,which I also have photos of should they be of any use. Regards Terese Hulse
RE: Margaret Martin McGahey Looks like her husband William was a glass blower. There were several glass blowers in this family. Any chance they lived in Millville NJ, there was a factory there.
I also have several Gorman's in my tree, any idea how Catherine Gorman might be related? Also what was your grandmother's first name & date of birth. Found a Helen R born April 1896. I'm trying to link them all. Thanks
Margaret Martin McGahey Can you tell me more about your Aunt Peg & how she came to meet her husband & move across the great state of PA. I am related to McGahey's in Phila & would love to be able to connect more family members. Thank you.
I added a picture of James E Purdys headstone. I also came across another stone with the Purdy name, with a John J. (1909-1951) and a David C. (1884-1965) buried there. Not sure if they are also a relation, but they were buried in fairly close proximity. I did get a picture, but don't see a listing here on Find A Grave, so I'll likely make one later on this evening, but still wanted to let you know!
Robert E. Dunn Just to let you know that he is not buried in Richmond but in Charlottesville, VA. I see you have a photo request for him # 123920245. You might want to delete that and put a request in for him in Charlottesville. His memorial is 130109529. Thought you might like to know. Cynthia
Re ur requests Just got back in town. Hoping to get over there this coming week to take pictures unless u want to take the other offer up on taking pictures. I live in erieville and it sounds like they live in New Woodstock. Let me know.
Pike Are Elizabeth and William Pike family members of yours? It looks like someone already claimed your request, but if they don't fulfill it let me know. I just live around the corner from the cemetery and if it's the people that I think it is, my husband and I are good friends with their son.
Natalie Marino I saw your photo request for Natalie Marino. Unfortunately, the photo volunteers aren't able to request the location of any of the graves. Only you can get that information. Just call the Mountain View Cemetery at: 510-658-2588. And be sure to edit your photo request with the location. Otherwise, you'll be waiting forever for that photo.
