I have been "playing" in genealogy for over 20 years. I research the names Dance,Ginn, Wade, McConnell,McCullough,Dunn,Shepherd,Cunningham, Moody and Carruth.

I am a widow, with four grown children,Deborrah, Kerrin,Aaron and Jason, 4 granddaughters,Jade, Amber, Brittany and Sierra. I belong to Grandmother's of SIDS ( having lost my 2 grandsons to SIDS as infants, Joshua (5 days) and Austin 7 and 1/2 weeks).

I live in Stanwood, WA 75 miles North of Seattle, out in the country. I do look-ups at the LDS church for birth and death certificates of Washington State.

Good luck in your quest of finding your "roots". If you find that I have made a mistake in any of the information,or you would like to add information, please contact me and I will correct it as soon as possible. Or if you would like to manage your family connection, please let me know and I will transfer them to you.

Please note my new email address. If you sent me notes after Sept 1st, please send them again. I had a major computer crash.

THANK YOU, and God Bless.........

RE: Franklin Stanton
I couldn't find any other website that included either Stanton burial in Old State Cemetery. From the photographs I found at
it looks like many graves are unmarked or their markers and monuments are long gone. The cemetery seems to have been called by several names besides Old State Cemetery, like Old Vandalia Cemetery and Old City Cemetery.

Thought the cemetery looks well kept, the markers and monuments could use some cleaning, restoration, and resetting.

I don't know the source of the list you plan to import or how reliable it might be. If it's from cemetery records or an earlier physical cemetery survey, that's about as good as you'll get for a cemetery that old. If you could get your hands on a map of the burial plots and burials, that would be fantastic.

Out of curiosity, may I ask why you contacted me with your request? I live in Oklahoma.

RE: Curtis Lewis
Hello Cousin,
Thank you for the reply.
I don't have a cemetery location for Veda, even though I am fairly sure she is in Sacramento County California where they lived and passed on. We had quite a bit of contact with her family over the years since we were both on the west coast. If I had your email address, I would be happy to share my Ancestry family tree. I am always looking for input,corrections,accuracy and photos of my ancestors.

We will be through the Morriston area later this spring, but haven't set a date yet. I always make it a point to go by the Lewis homestead since the old house is still standing. It is on Mr York's property now but he has been very kind in allowing me to go up and take pictures. One of these days, it will have fallen down in a heap and another connection with the past will be gone.

You cousin,
Ted Mansfield
