Daddy gave me his families' collected genealogical records; treasures when I was 16 (CW brass powder horn; quill pen; original 1860 McNutt funeral notice; bibles; wedding ring; braided hair bracelet with photo & initials; daguerreotypes; books; old original 1781 Grigsby deed; 1812 copy of Milton's Paradise Lost; Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect by Robert Burns; 1838 full issue Alexander's Messenger, Philadelphia newspaper with "J.McChesney" at top; 1848 full issue of the Valley Star Lexington, VA newspaper with "E.Paxton" written on top; hand written receipts 1852 & 1861; books The Captive of Abb's Valley; (cousin) Leander J. (signed) & Henrietta H. McCormick books; photos, etc). Since then in one way or another I've been interested in our many ancestors and the knowledge they've taught me along the way. |
I started my own research and have been hooked ever since. I love the hunt and traveling to the many places it takes you to follow your own genes.
I found Findagrave.com and many of my ancestor's graves and family connections as well and then just started adding the rest. I think it's a great way to preserve the ever eroding gravestones and our families' memories while sharing it with others. I think it also teaches us humiliation, understanding, compassion, and pride in the strengths and weaknesses of our ancestors.
I'm doing my best to connect family links (parents and children) to my kin (direct and collateral) and really appreciate all who have kindly added the connections for me. I'm glad to add yours also.
Check out http://www.graveaddiction.com/symbol.html if you're interested in the symbols found on gravestones. Neat informative site. Are you a taphophile or tombstone tourist? I am.
Below is one of the best descriptions of our Scottish kins travels from Ulster, Northern Ireland through PA to VA, that I recommend. This well written article combines pretty much everything I've found and more. Scotch-Irish Presbyterians From Ulster to Rockbridge, by © Angela M. Ruley, 3 October 1993. Angela headed the Rockbridge Area Genealogy Society and wrote several impressive publications on Rockbridge Co.

No, I have no idea where he's buried, but a family member contacted me and I'll ask more questions.
Alexander Stuart had more children than the 8 you listed with Carrie Lena. They had an Alexander Stuart II 1884-1885, another Alexander Stuart III 1894-1894.
He married Clemmie Itilla McFadden 27 Sept 1899, 1st Presbyterian Church, Murphresboro, Tenn. They had two children: Cornelia McFadden Moffett, and Alexander Stuart IV 1907-1980.
These are listed on 1910 Kentucky Miracode, with he and Clemmie: Emma H, May C, Martha Paxton, Natalie C, Cornelia M, Alex S. all listed as b. Kentucky. Clemmie b.Tennessee.

I am so glad to hear this. I think it was last year that I wrote the genealogical & historical society again, that something really needed to be done. I will do some comparisons with what I have and I might also go out and see in person what a difference there is now and also what help I can be with the unknown stones problem. Thanks

|TMcManaway||RE: Ileita M. Harris|
You are very welcomed. I had the photo in my inventory so I didn't have to do much but post it. LOL Terry
|Bob Reiter||RE: Elizabeth Brillhart|
Your welcome, so many of the headstones are un-readable. It's an old cemetery and kind of in disrepair. Now that I see what her stone looks like, it might help with her husbands. Next time I'm out that way I'll check it out.
|Bernadette||Re: Thomas Cornell|
When you locate the childrens' burial sites you can link them to the father. Since this is a member of my family, I'm especially interested in locating the burial sites of the parents as well.
|CSR||RE: Ernest A. Thomas|
Ernest claimed Bessie (Hodge) Henley and Orville Hodge as his brother and sister in his obit. He was living in the Hodge home for a while as well. His parents were James and Mary (Williams) Thomas. There is a connection between the Hodge and Thomas family, but I can't seem to find out why or how exactly.
I am related to the Hodge/Coudy/Henley family through my uncle's family. Bessie, Orville, and Clifford Hodge are 1st cousins 1x removed. And since Ernest was in the family, I kind of put him in the same group. Margaret Coudy married Orville Hodge, while Bessie Hodge married Floyd Henley.
I will gladly maintain Ernest's site. Thank you for the offer.

Thanks for the offer. However, these are 2nd and 3rd cousins; so I think I will pass.
