|Bio and Links|
I research many family lines>> |
Smothers, Smethers, Smathers, SMEATHERS, Smither, Smithers, Smythers, Smitheys, Smiddys, GRASS, Longmire, STATLER, Beall/Bell, BERRY, Gentry, ASHBY, Stribling, Taliaferro, Youngman, Harris, Netherland, Lee, FOSTER, Greathouse, Showalter, Bowlus, RAMSEY, Strange, Ash, France, MILLER, HINCH, Hinsch, Hinchey, KELLY/Kelley, Butler, Clark, Dufner, May, Upton, Taylor, Day, Dowlearn, Upchurch, Turk, Reid, McElroy, Faught, Richardson, Schafer, Weymouth to list a few.
They come from Pa to NC/TN, from KY to TX.
Willing to take those of my family lines, extended families & those in our Smothers Tribe DNA project to manage when I run across them. I live in NE WA & at this time not available to search cemeteries nor take photos as physical disabilities hinder me in doing so or would do in a heartbeat. I will submit various family memorials as the information & gravestone information is gathered & given to me or I am able to do so. I gladly help anyone I can, esp along the lines I research to help connect families. It is my passion as a genial genealogist to assist others as much as possible.
...I like this I saw on a gal's page recently, "Let's make it a goal to add as much information, as we can possibly document, to these memorials."
Had to snag this from a gal's site.."I enjoy reading contributors Bio's but it's called that for a reason but Not, to use the space to reiterate F-A-G guidelines by a contributor who feels the need to preach to others about how they should make their memorials. Believing we are all adults & know the guidelines most all do act accordingly & do not need to be preached at."
I admin our Smothers Tribe DNA project 2002-2013 as well as admin at least 50+ rootsweb & ancestry mail lists & boards to help others. I live on a ranch, am happily retired and besides a heartfelt Passion for Genealogy; my beloved family of children, grandchildren, cousins & precious friends, all my critters too esp my sweet little deer herd I've made great friends with over the years; I immensely enjoy working with F-A-G and members in helping folks connect with their ancestors. Am happy to make links, corrections & transfers. I am especially appreciative of our gravestone photographers and are owed big Cudos!!
Many kind thanks to all who leave flowers on any of our ancestor memorials!~Happy Trails!
Here are tidbits:JFYI
finding Gravestones without a dob>
when you don't have a dob and only dod & yr, mo, dy-here's a formula to figure out the dob
example: person died May 6 1889 age 71yr 7mo 9dy
1. write year, month day >18890506
2. subtract age at death >> 710709
3. gets this sum >>>>> 18179797
4. subtract 8870 >>>>>> 1817/09/27
= Sept 27 1817
here is another way to do it if the above gets you too frustrated/:-)
freebie calculator someone sent me. http://www.progenealogists.com/birthfromdeath.htm
If you wonder when census are done go here
Here is a link to a You Tube video about reading unreadable tombstones. Very interesting technique.
LDS site has added millions of new records; checking it probably will find a DC for that individual with most all info one needs for any missing dob/dod's.
LDS research site/new
When giving your Member # to someone be sure to give them your whole link in your browser, otherwise they end up at a dec'd person's memorial; this separates being a member in F-A-G vs being a dec'd person with a memorial where you only need their member # to find them, can't find a F-A-G member though using this method, trust me I've done it, and end up at an unknown person.
"The Dash" is based on that little line on a tombstone, between the dates of birth and death. Ultimately, that dash is a symbol which represents every day they've spent alive on earth. Therefore, how you spend your "dash" is all that really matters. These memorials we do for folks hopefully give a glimpse into their lives of that DASH!
thanks kindly, More later~~Happy Trails >>>>

Find A Grave Memorial# 19429279 Is Margaret G. Stark my Grandmother.
My Mom is Margaret A Hood and she lives in Lakeview Oh with me and her husband is/was Eugene F. Hood and he buried in York Cemetary.
My sister Judy G. Hood and my brother Louis Leon Hood both are also both buried there. My sister from a car accident and my brother from liver disease.
Margaret G. Stark is buried in York Cemetary beside her husband Bernard Stark.
Ruth passed away I believe 3-4 years ago. My Aunt Brenda told us because family had not been in contact for several years after Grandpa Lester Harold Smother's passed away.
Lester Smothers is buried in Greencamp Cemetary. Ruth is buried beside him and Kenneth (Kenny) their son died in 1997 I think. Kenny died from Aids. Grandpa died from complications from pnemonia and Ruth from age.
Linda,Brenda,and Diana all survive. If you need more info I will get my Aunts last names.
Mom also knows and has alot of info if needed. You can email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like.
Sorry I haven't answered sooner.

|anabelle steelman||RE: Douglas, Charles R # 83123852|
Thanks for the reply. Would like any other info you have on this. 1930 census has Charles m. to Edith, who is ae. 31, so she cannot be Nora Ellen, who was b. in 1885, and would be 45 in 1930. We know he m. Dorothy in 1935, and was still m. to her in 1940.
If Nora had a child with Claude Clifford in 1928, there is a very narrow window from 1928-1930 when she could have been m. to Charles.
|anabelle steelman||RE: Douglas, Charles R # 83123852|
Sorry, just had a chance to really look at this. I'm confused about where Nora Longmire fits. I see wife Edith, b. 1899, to whom he was married in the 1930 census, and second wife Dorothy, m. in 1935, but where does Nora. b. 1885, come in?
|Mn8X||RE: Smothers/Red bank|
I have not been to Marion Cemetery, it is about 40 miles away from here. Smothers is a common name in the history of the counties around central Ohio (Franklin, Delaware, Licking, Knox, Morrow, Marion...). From the looks of this site, many of them have photos attached to their memorials. If you are having a hard time finding someone in central Ohio, try the spellings "Smathers" & "Smethers". I have seen this occasionally in the cemeteries I frequent.

You are very welcome
|Ally||RE: Memorial# 98806166|
Sometimes I wonder about these so called unmarked graves of people who are listed in the cemeteries here. They may not actually be there or possibly never were.
Anyway, thanks for the update!
