|Bio and Links|
I have been doing genealogy as long as I can remember, but went "obsessive" with it after my son's birth in 1996. |
It's tough living in Southern California with my roots in the midwest back to Pennsylvania & Virginia and my husband's in Alabama and Georgia.
I have made some wonderful friends and found lots of cousins. I try to post what I find so that others will not have to beat their heads against all of the walls I have.
Just let me know if you want me to make a correction or add a link to a memorial I have created. I am also willing to do transfers if you can show a close link.

Thank you both for trying to locate the stone for Finly, it is possible that it is an unmarked site, as there are many of these in many of the cemeteries.
Thank you for your time in persueing this, and have a blessed week-end.

Bruce and Shelby have been transferred as requested. I'm glad for them to be in your care.
This Taylor family was from Choctaw Co, AL. If you have information on Jackson Taylor, 1843-1896, or any of his siblings, please contact me.

Dear Valerie, No I am not related to Daniel Lochbaum, whose mortal remains were laid in Springdale Cemetery in Peoria. Since 1985, I have been tracking down and writing about the Civil War veterans from Peoria County. I wrote a column in two local newspapers over the years and had accumulated thousands of pages of information about these thousands of veterans who came through Peoria on the way to the war. I found out about Find A Grave just over three years and almost every day I spend between one and two hours adding information about them to their Find A Grave biographies. I hope to add more yet to Daniel's site. I have added your name and contact information to his site and when I am done adding all I can, if you are interested in managing it, I would be glad to transfer it to you. In time, I think I will be able to fill in much of the missing information, however, in the mean time, I would appreciate hearing from you if you have any of this information at hand. Some people who I have come in contact with through Find A Grave feel Find A Grave is not the place for biographical material like this. I feel, especially because it's free to the public, that's it's the perfect place for all information that I can write about these veterans of the Civil War and I don't feel I can say enough about the veterans who have given so much for their country. Thanks for all you are doing to preserve the family history. Sincerely, Baxter

Dear Valerie, Thanks for the additional information that you sent me on Private Lochbaum. I have added this as well as other information. Please take a look at what I have now. I will continue to search for information about him and his family, but, if these are any missing pieces of information that you can help me with now, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and Thanks for all you are doing for Find A Grave. It is and always will be GREATLY APPRECIATED!! Sincerely, Baxter
|Elana Kahn||RE: Henry Francis Poor # 35694315|
The picture was taken at Mt Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA (where the rest of his family is buried), but I believe he's buried in Hawaii. I just looked, and there's a duplicate record for him in O'ahu Cemetery. Unfortunately I can't read the stone much better than you would be able to because it's so worn away. If I were to guess I would say it says:
"Died Honolulu, HI
Sep. 16, 1859 Aged 27"
|Dan Pitchford||RE: Thank you - Schepis!|
You're very welcome!
No, I didn't take a photo of the one next to it but if I can get by there again soon, I'll take one and get it uploaded for you.

|Janet Trigg||RE: Photo - Peaden|
I will try to get down there and clear it off and get you a better pic in the near future if you like. It has so much moss stuff growing on it. May take a week. When I get it done, will post them. Just check back once in awhile to see.
|Diana Brooks McBay/Tennessee||W B Prestridge|
The changes you asked for on W B Prestridge have been made. When I linked him to his father I noticed that one of his sisters was named Lily, there is a Leila Prestridge ID #30724486 b. May 11, 1917 and d. September 28, 1957 buried in the same cemetery as William Barney Prestridge. Could this be his sister called Lilly? If so let me know and I will link her to her family as well. Thank you for the update on William Barney....
