Findagrave has been an invaluable resource for my own family research and I am so grateful to all of the volunteers who have contributed to this site. My journey has taken me from my hometown of Lake Wales, Fl. to the frozen tundra of MN by way of AL,TX,CA,and WI. Recently returning to the South, NC is state #7, I am following the research of my great-greatgrandmother, Lora S. LaMance, expanding and correcting her data.|

Thank you for the new information.
|Storres Myers||RE: Caroline Harvey|
The Orvis plot photos are uploaded. They were prominent families and it is unfortunate that their relatives have not provided biographical information. I live in Clinton County and my access to Centre family histories is limited. In the plot I found, Cynthia Ann Scott Urban, Anne Valentine Lyon Orvis and Mary Orvis Harvey Fenity.--Storres
|Janice Peay||RE: I found this in my notes on John Reynolds McKeeby|
Are they Park descendants, from Howard Nehemiah Park and Mary Emily McKeeby? If so, do they know of Mary Emily Smith McKeeby's parents? I have her father's will.
If you would, please give them my email address, it's visible on my profile.
|Carl Bennett||RE: James P. Lamance|
OK, thanks for letting me know. As you probably surmised, I got the information from memorial #113304872, which does not reflect my research, but someone else's. I was interested because the Preston name crops up in my own Winters line, which is from a brother of James's grandfather, Moses Winters. Do you have any corrective information for the site for that Moses Winters?
Have you asked the manager of the James site to change Preston to P.?

Family Bible: On Ebay. The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments, etc. New York: American Bible Society: 1856. The Bible is inscribed in pen on the first EP by Mary McKeeby.
HOWARD NEHEMIAH PARKE, (Nehemiah, Simon), was born at Franklin, Pa., March 28, 1839, and died there July 4, 1864. He married Mary Emily McKeeby, June 25, 1861, at Great Bend, Pa. She was born Feb. 13, 1835, daughter of John Reynolds and Mary Emily (Smith) McKeeby.
|Janice Peay||John R. McKeeby|
Thank you so very much for the heads up on John R. McKeeby. John was the husband of my 5th great aunt. I have his middle name as Reynolds, but have no source.
I will see if I can find a will or something for John. His children were back in Susquehanna Co., PA by 1860, when his 2nd wife reported she was a widow.
I found it helpful to see that John had been a resident of Tioga County for 5 years in 1855, Edwin had only been there 2. I wonder if 1853 is when John and Mary Hill married? And...in 1900, Mary was living with her brother Ward Lisle Hill, and reported having had no children. Sad.
Thanks again, this information is priceless!
|Storres Myers||RE: Caroline Harvey|
You are welcome and thank you for acknowledging the photo. I will return on a sunny day and photograph the Orvis plot. The monument is one of the most prominent ones in the cemetery and I was surprised to see the lack of photos when I got home. I will send you a message.--Storres
|Jeannette||Margaret vs. Helen Warinner|
Kathy, thank you for bringing it to my attention that Margaret Mathews Warinner #9796777 was linked to the wrong husband. I have linked her to Henry Grant Warinner #9796762. I also linked Helen Starke Warinner #9796761 to her husband Dr. Junius Ernest Warinner #9796774. I sent an email request to the contributor who posted the photo of Helen on Margaret's memorial and asked that it be moved.
|Don Blauvelt||RE: Mary (Partridge) Brewster|
And her husband's gravestone says Brewster. Not everyone in the mid-1700s knew how to properly spell the English language, including gravestone cutters.
|Don Blauvelt||Mary (Partridge) Brewster|
Regarding your note and question regarding the slightly earlier memorial for Mary "Bruster," she is one and the same person as my memorial for Mary (Partridge) Brewster. One would have expected the surname to have been properly inscribed as Brewster, not "Bruster" written in old style as "Brufter" and not to have gone looking for an existing memorial for "Mary Brewster." Thus, I need to request an administrative merger of the earlier dated memorial, which has no bio material, into mine with the newly photographed gravestone contained in the merged memorial. The Partridge family are my ancestors and why I traced and maintain Mary's ancestry and memorial.
In addition, at my request regarding some undocumented gravestones in the "new" Scotland Cemetery, my good friend Sara, an experienced Conn. find-a-grave volunteer photographer, took upon herself two months ago to also find and photograph any old gravestone at the nearby "old" Scotland cemetery that were overlooked in 1933 and never part of the Hale Conn. Cemetery database or are listed therein, thus exist, but nobody had bothered to photograph for the last 100 years.
Thanks for making me aware of this.
