Bio and Links
I began researching my family history in 2006. At first, this was primarily to find out information on my family from Pennsylvania and their descendants. Later, I expanded my efforts to include my wife's family as well, whose roots are in Mississippi.

I came across Find A Grave and have been using it frequently to help me research my family. The people who volunteer their time on this site are great and have been very helpful. In an effort to give back, I have been trying to add to the site when I can.

RE: James and Emma Taylor
Sadly that is all the information I have. I am not related to them, would you like a transfer? The information on Find-A-Grave comes from their gravestones in Chestnut Grove Cemetery.

RE: George Galveston Brandon, son of Sylvester and Irene Kramer Brandon, Venango, PA
Hi, the Census records show that when he married, he brought his family back to Venango, PA. and Lived there as a boarder, at one point without his family, so this is indeed possible. The children were with their grandparents in KY. This is very interesting, thanks for sharing. Cris

George Galveston Brandon, son of Sylvester and Irene Kramer Brandon, Venango, PA
Do you know anything about the children of Beulah Virginia Blanton who married George Galveston Brandon, a man from Venango, Pennsylvania. They had 2 kids: Ella T and George T Brandon. In 1920, the family is in Pennsylvania. In 1930, both Ella and George are living with their grandparents, Samuel Tildon and Docia Howard Blanton in Jackson, Breathitt County, KY. In 1940, Ella is living with her aunt Bethel Blanton and her husband, Alfred Back in Jackson, Breathitt County, KY. The brother,
George T., is shown to in Kitsap Washington enlisting in the military. Then I lose track of the Brandon children. The father is shown to be a lodger in 1930 in Pennsylvania, I can't find him in 1940. The he turns up next in Montana at the age of 78 dying in 1967. Beulah V. can't be found in any of the 1930/40 Census, and dies in Florida in 1989 at age 86. Any info would be helpful. thanks.

RE: Margaret Ray
Hello cousin...something strange must be going on here! When I look at the memorial page for Margaret E. (McCulloch) Ray #22588156, I do not see any links to her parents, Thomas L. and Elizabeth (Kerr) McCulloch. I am descended from one of Thomas' brothers, GRD McCulloch who was my 2nd great-grandfather. If your wife was a 3rd great-granddaughter of Thomas, then she and I are 4th cousins one generation removed. Kevin

RE: Sylvester Brandon
No problem at all. He served with a few of my Uncles during the Civil War. Glad I could help. If you look up my page on Eli Carner, I have a list of all the guys in the 64th L, from Venengo Co

RE: Jacob Aldrich
Oops, a little typo (forgot a "d") there plus an extra note... my last message should have read:

...Aldrich Cemetery [ ] in what is now Uxbridge, MA. [Uxbridge is one of the neighboring towns that used to be part of Mendon.]

RE: Jacob Aldrich
I was unable to relocate his Find-A-Grave memorial in order to update you, but here are the latest details...

According to an old reference book on the Mendon Town Clerk's desk, Jacob Aldrich was apparently not born in Mendon; however, (as you know) that is where he died (on 22 October 1695). The clerk provided me with a copy of that page, which I can scan/upload for you, if you want...

Furthermore, the Mendon Town Clerk refered me to additional potential records at the neighboring Town Library. The afternoon librarian found a couple interesting references... The first was an Eagle Scout project done in 1990, which pretty much confirmed my findings that there does not appear to be any Jacob Aldrich at the Old Cemetery in Mendon, MA. The other book (which I will have to look at again later), indicated that Jacob was buried at the Alrich Cemetery [ ] in what is now Uxbridge, MA.

If you can update the cemetery info., perhaps your photo request will have more success... and, maybe the memorial will be available to other searches again.
