Bio and Links
Bio Photo My childhood had been so questionable. Unsure of my ethnicity, I always kept an ear open for clues but it rarely ever happened. The stories of my parents family past...seldom spoke of, and on occassion they spoke in a language unfamiliar to me, until one unforgetable and most memorable day...that big wide door was finally opened. Butterflies flappin' in my gut, the laughs, the tears, and the joy of it all. I was blessed! I began doing some serious family research on both my parents sides with the backbone support of both my parents, their relatives and countless others of which I am so indebted to. I've been researching since about 1993, invested in extremely long hours, alot of travel, footwork, document research and of course the expense of it all. Genealogy has since been an addiction, and a very rewarding part of my life. It has not only answered my ever most childhood curiosities ever imagined but of whom I descend. I have no regrets.
I'd be more then happy to share with anyone researching same families. Just give me a holler! :)

I KINDLY ASK THAT YOU DO "NOT" COPY AND USE MY PERSONAL FAMILY PHOTOS FOR YOUR USE FOR THE PURPOSE OF PUBLISHING ONLINE, OR TAKING CREDIT FOR SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T RIGHTFULLY BELONG TO YOU, nor do I give permission for anyone to post my genealogy and/or photos on ANY pay sites. This would include any/all family connections I have posted. If you are interested in a copy of my PERSONAL photos, or my work, "YOU MUST CONTACT ME FIRST"

Please respect my wishes

Transfer Complete.
Also I like the not that you posting telling people not to use your picture and other information without your permimission. I didn't think it applied to the note, so I am asking permission sorry I didn't think to ask first. And the same prolblem is happening on Ancestry Public member trees.

You need to delete the entries you made and then go to the children I added, click on "edit" on the right side, then on "suggest a correction" and make a request for a transfer of management of the memorial to you.

Charles Cavileer 1749-1815
Dear Jan,

I was so happy to find your information on Charles Cavileer. I am a great-great-granddaughter of Charles H. Constable. I had a suspicion that Charles' mother's name was Elizabeth Cavileer, but wasn't sure. I also thought she might be related to Thomas Spottswood Hinde's 2nd wife, Sarah Doughty Cavileer Neil. It never occurred to me they might be sister's.

I have several questions. What does "calculated relationship" mean? Who is the grandson who kept a journal? Do you have any information on the time this family spent in Ohio?

I knew Charles Constable was born in Chestertown and went to the University of Virginia. Then he appears in Mt. Carmel, IL. I couldn't figure out how or why he went to Illinois. I am happy to share information that I might have.

I believe I saw that you had not found Elizabeth Ann Cavileer Constable's grave. It is in Chestertown Cemetery near Robert Constable's. I believe I have a photo. I am new to Find A Grave. If you are willing to give me your regular e-mail address, I will try to send it to you that way. Is there a way to send a private message?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Charles Zahnow
The State of IL put out a military honor roll that listed Charles as being buried in that cemetery. The book is not perfect and occasionally I have found errors, but just because there are no other Zahnows listed in that cemetery doesn't mean there are none buried there. There was a Zahnow family in that area and they could all be buried there, but it just hasn't been recorded yet in findagrave. Actually there are no other Zahnows listed in all of IL in Findagrave, but we do know that some lived and most probably died there.

Question for you.....
Jan, I know this may seen odd but since you are my relative and I want to know about my mother's side of the family would it be possible for me to meet you? I live in West St. Paul. My mother was taken away from my Grandma Marcy when she was a baby. My mother found Marcy again when she was 18yrs old. I knew my grandma but I was never interested in learning anything while she was here with us. I dont know if you were present at my grandma's funeral but THomas was her father, Your dad's brother. I wish I could have met my great grandpa but they all died so young.I'm just curious to hear about the family. Please let me know. My phone number is 651-230-6926 or you can just message me.

RE: Cavalier
Hi Jan,I was wondering if Isreal was enrolled with Turtle Mountain or if anyone was enrolled at Turtle Mountain of our relatives? I am sending some information to the enrollment office there. I wondered if you may have already discovered anything like that....

Thank you,
Danielle Calvert
