Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a facinating 'hobby' digging into the past, and it is marvelous to have such a tool as findagrave and it's people to assist. Finding time for it is a whole different thing. I discover hours disappearing, when only a couple were 'set aside' for this activity. It is with great appreciation to all of you who donate your time to take photos in places that others can't visit, and it is exciting when there are successes. I look forward to having the time to devote to this as well. Thank you, Contributers!

2nd Generation below Colonel Arthur
I am doing some family history research on this line of my family tree. Cousins of mine claim that we are direct descendants of Arthur but the documentation that they have is (in my opinion) rather sketchy.

I have done quite a bit of research on this and have found some things that provide some information on the children of Arthur by Mary Scott and Mary Kennedy; but I'm still missing a key link between those children and my ancestors.

Can you please share with me what your sources are for the children of Colonel Arthur that you posted in the memorial. For example, did you get this info from a family bible, a book, or some other source? Please email me at

Erwin Memorials-Col Arthur Erwin
Today I found the memorial for Col Arthur Erwin, at the Erwin Family Cemetery, Bucks Co, PA. Wondering if you are related to this family or just setup the memorials. We have visited there as my husband is an Erwin. Trying to connect his gg-grandfather to his ancestors. Look forward to a reply, and would love to hear at my personal email,
Thank you.

RE: Gen. Francis E.Erwin photo
Hi Joanne:
The photo came from:
History of Steuben County, New York, which
can be viewed full text on-line. It was
published in 1879 so it is not in copyright.
Anybody can use the photos and the information.
My computer for some reason lately will not
copy and paste so I cannot send you the link.
I simply google: "History of Steuben County
New York, full text." If you cannot get into
it let me know.
The Erwins that I have found in this book:
1) Col. Arthur Erwin, from Ireland.
No photo just a biographical sketch.
2) Arthur H. Erwin (brother of Gen. Francis Erwin),
has a biographical sketch and a portrait.
I just added his portrait to his memorial.
3) And Gen. Francis E. Erwin, has the portrait
and a biographical sketch.
There may be other Erwins' I did not go through
the whole book.
Hope this helps, good luck.

RE: Thank you!
Is there a way you can email me the map of the layout of the graves? I know I have one but can't seem to find it.
I found my pictures of that cemetery on my hard drive and they are pictures of the ones that I was able to make out. It could be, your stone is unreadable.
I can go back and try, using the map I'll take a photo of the stone that is there..readable or not.
Hows that sound?

RE: Thank you!
Glad we could help. Have uploaded a picture fulfilling your photo request for Anne Wilkes. I also created a memorial for their 2 year old son, James. I can transfer that to you if you would like. -Charles

P.S. - Anne's memorial is a duplicate, you might consider deleting the other one. Also, Anne's death date on the stone is Jan 11, 1870.

I have photos for the other two sides of the stone relating to Shannons.
