Bio and Links
Bio Photo Virginia and I recently (2013) celebrated our 53rd wedding anniversary. My family roots include Hobson (of course), Garrison, Vandruff, Goff, and so many others too numerous to mention. The family tree has been my form of recreation for over thirty years, and I continue to seek and find connected families. I collect obituaries, headstone photos, old family photos, published biographies, engagement and wedding announcements for those in my family tree, and am always looking for more. I'm very grateful to those who post information without hoping for financial gain. I usually post memorials here when there is an obituary to use as a biographical paragraph. My own collected research is available for the asking.

As of August of 2014 I've been notified about my transgression of including surviving relatives in my bio paragraphs. Since these all come from published obituaries, it had not occurred to me to obtain the permission of those still living whose names are included in the obituaries. (They already gave their permission to the newspaper, did they not?) However, to appease the guardians of truth, justice and the American way, I will be removing all mention of survivors in any obituary I have posted from 1922 and later. Before then, the printed obituaries are considered to be in the public domain.

Because I have posted so very many obituaries to findagrave it will take me some time to remove the survivor information, so please be patient. And my sincerest apologies to all those who have been harmed or offended by my actions.

RE: Your posting re no gravestone
Sure, you can use the 'photo'! I haven't been reprimanded for using it, so I'm sure it is ok. By that I mean, using a stock photo in place of an actual one. sometimes people can be very picky and strict on this site. I find it helpful to know if someone doesn't have a gravestone, to save another person's time trying to find one that doesn't exist! Thank you for asking!

Dear Gerald,
I have been trying to locate graves for John and Rachel Wright when I found your reference note on the memorial for Sarah J. Wright Goff and wanted to know if you have researched further on her parents.

Note: Sarah J. Wright Goff was the daughter of John Wright and Rachel (Unknown).

My family records show Rachel Garrison was her mother. I have found some additional records for Rachel's parents - Stephen Garrison and Elizabeth Ayers Garrison (graves located in Salem Cty, NJ - Olivet Cemetery) and further back to Jacob Garrison and Christina Cresson.

I'm looking forward to review your site and hope to hear from you soon.

Susan Tuttle (grandmother Minnie Nina Wright)
