There duplicates of Henry Findley. I took over one established in May 2010 and see you did one in Jan of that year. I hate to delete mine because it has more information.

Hi, I am Beverly Asbell Whitlow, daughter of Harold Asbell, son of Claude and Cora Asbell. I remember the Findley name from my grandfather's funeral. Thank you for doing such a good job of historical work on our small family. You can contact me at my e-mail, which I assume you will get from the previous requested information. Otherwise, I am in Indianapolis, Indiana. Again, thank you so very much. If you would like or need additional info, I can probably get it for you.

RE: Moses Whitecotton Sr
George, It is very true what you say about the internet. There is a great difference between finding convoluted conclusions on the internet that people have come to that to them "make sense" and someone actually doing the leg work, going to the courthouses and libraries and researching records. I will go to Montgomery County to see if I can find the death records for my GGG parents Harrison and Margaret then perhaps I could find their sites, I think they may be in Freedom Cemetery. I have seen many records showing Moses (Jr.) and Sarah (Kincaid) in Putnum County until they passed, that would be my next task. If there is anything you would like me to do for you, please let me know. Paul

Moses Whitecotton Sr
George, First of all, thank you for all of your hard work putting together the site, I think it's great. Many years ago I tried to trace my lineage but it seemed confusing when it came to Moses Whitecotton. Part of the confusion was the fact that "Moses" had been a common name that was pasted on through out the many branches of the family. My GG Grandfather's name was Harrison Whitecotton from Putnum County, Indiana, son of Moses Whitecotton also from Putnum County. During my earlier search the dates and locations of Moses and Harrison just didn't seem to make sense. I had pretty much giving up and just accepted that the records perhaps were wrong or mixed up over the years. Then, just recently, I found your record of the grave site of Moses Whitecotton Sr. in Decatur County, Indiana, which just happens to be the county I just moved to about a year ago. When I saw the posting of Moses Whitecotton Sr. it hit me, even though it didn't list his son Moses on your site, there must of been a junior. And sure enough I found the connection. Moses Whitecotton Sr. had two sons, Moses (junior) and Harrison. My GGG Grandfather Moses Whitecotton Jr. FINALLY, to the point of my message to you. I would like Moses Whitecotton Jr. added to Moses Whitecotton Sr. children list. I plan to find Moses Jr. and Harrison's grave sites in the coming weeks, along with my own father's Billy Richard Whitecotton. Thanks again, Paul M. Whitecotton

Would you be so kind as to transfer my Uncle over to me so that I can update information on him. He was a brother to my grandmother Delilah Catherine Hooper Benell (son of William Hooper and Lorana Green Hooper)

Emma E. Brown
Hello,
I noticed that you put up a picture of Emma E. Brown/Mann and I was wondering if you know her full name. She was the sister of my g-g-great grandfather Moses Willard Burgess and I'm just very curious to know her full name. Where did you get that photo? I also wonder if you have any other family photos, possibly with some of my ancestors in them. Thank you so much!

RE: Burrell, Rebecca Robertson
Hi,
I did try your e-mail again, thought I had left out the dash the first time. Tried it again and I still get a message that it is not recognized.
I will put the picture of what I think is Rebecca's grave stone that I took, on her memorial at Find A Grave. You can take a look at it there and see what you think. If you can zoom in on it, Rebecca is at the top, written in a curve rather than a straight line. Two lines below the last five letters look to me like rrell.
Hope you can zoom in on it, it will show up better.
I will put it on the Robertson Cemetery site.

Mr. Findley,
