|Bio and Links|
Daughter of Arthur L. Blakeslee (1917-1993) and Dorothy M. Sturdivant (1918-2010). I am a descendant of Capt. David Blakeslee and his son Reuben. I am also looking for any information on my paternal Grandmothers family; Merilla Hatch from Crawford Co., PA. Also my Maternal Grandfathers family; Charles Bonner Davis of Greene Twp, Erie Co., PA. I was born and raised in Erie, PA. Many of my siblings have moved to the gulf coast of Florida.|
I enjoy genealogy and photography. i Collect Dolls, doll related items and postcards of Dolls or Historical Sites. Will add photos of memorials in the Erie area if requested and time permits. I work full time as an Accounting Manager and take care of a few Senior Citizens.
If I have listed a memorial of your loved one and it includes an error or incomplete information (i.e. date or place of birth, death, spelling), feel free to let me know and I will make the correction
FAMILY NAMES: These are the names I am researching. If you know of any connections to these names please drop me a note.
Blakeslee /aka Blakesley, Blakesly
Sturdivant / aka Sturdevant
Buffin / aka Buffum, Buffun
Robison, /aka Robinson
and many others in my extended family.
I am the 7th Generation American on my Paternal side and 5th Generation American on my Maternal side. Irish-Scotch & English Decendent & Cherokee Indian.
My Maternal Side of the family were founders of Wesleyville, Erie Co., Pa. My Paternal Side were involved in the Founding of Spartansburg, Crawford Co., PA.
I live in Erie County, PA and have been doing extensive genealogy research in Erie County since 1964. I have researched extensively Wales Cemetery, Greene Township, Erie Co., PA and I am currently working with the "Wales Cemetery Association" in documenting the burials in this Cemetery.

Thanks so much for taking the time to take the photo!
|Jodie Brown||RE: Maggie Sewell|
Your welcome Carol. I sent information to your email. Let me know if you didn't get it.
|Robin Agarwal||HENTON photos|
Thank you so much for these photos! I really appreciate your comments on them as well, thank you for taking the time to include these notes.
I made some of the corrections that you requested on Sept 10. I did not make all that you had requested as I do not believe some were repeats. There were some that you stated were repeats, however, the stones were different. (They appeared different, not just aged.) For those ones, I did not delete. There are times where there are multiple people with the same names in the same cemetery.
The other duplicates that were made were unintentional. I have no relatives in Wales in which I would feel like I have to "own" them. Most likely I entered a few without checking to see if they were already listed. I do that every now and then without meaning to :) I also sometimes press the enter button a second time without meaning to which makes duplicates of a same person. I try to catch them, but some do escape me :)
There is one that you state was not buried there. There was a stone and I recorded it. Just because there is not a record of them being buried there does not mean that they weren't. There is a large cemetery in Erie that I have stones for that they do not have a record of. Maybe the record was lost or destroyed or not recorded correctly. Anyway, I am not removing that memorial either because there was a stone. If you find they were buried in a different cemetery and can prove it is them, I will be more than happy to remove the memorial. Until then I will not.
I have no issue giving memorials to others as long as I'm not related.

|Rebecca Jean Jackson Henderson||RE: Wales Cemetery Transfers|
No problem. Glad to help and transfer. You only asked for the one, but I wanted to keep all the family together. If I can help in the future, just let me know.

A Ron Lewis and I are trying to piece together
Phillip Simeon Mickel-Mickle and wife Betsy Peck of Bloomfield Twp., Crawford Co., PA., Henderson Co., IL., Ionia Co., MI., Hickory, Carroll Co., AR., back to Sebewa Twp. Ionia Co., MI.
Need info on "Betsy" Elizabeth Peck who were her parents?

On line 39 his son Merritt Blakeslee father of Robert Elkanah Blakeslee that marries Mary-Mayme-Mame Briggs who had formerly been married to Phillip Jack Mickle son of Henry Mickle and Sarah L. McFadden, grandson of Phillip Simon Mickle and Betsey Peck.

Phillip Jack Mickle #83813041 was first married to my great aunt Olie-Olive May Foster 1882 Ionia, MI. Divorced. 2/w Mayme Briggs d/o Levi S. Briggs and Laura Lavenia Venen. They divorce and then she marries above Robert E. Blakeslee.

|Sunny Stayt||RE: My Walkers|
Thank you Carole!
The other two...have not found them in my tree...may be cousins...
|Sunny Stayt||RE: My Walkers|
Trying to decipher old letters....
Herbert and Jesse are a match....2 other infants that died in or before 1900...but I honestly cannot even guess at names, only that Alice had lost 4 or her 5...
I thought one was Herrot C...Herbert C matches for birth and death! Jesse W matches up with what I thought was Tesse N (boy) so I now have correct spellings!
We often decipher old letters "by committee" but sometimes give up and leave for another time....we treasure these old letters, but they can be very challenging!
So THANK YOU!!!!
Herbert: Find A Grave Memorial# 115402010
Jesse: Find A Grave Memorial# 115401467
Again, my thanks and my families thanks!
