Downing Family
I have been looking for the children of Ray and Mildred Downing. She passed away when I was about 7, and I believe this is my grandfather and grandmother. I am her granddaughter, my father is Donald Ray Downing, I have spoken with him and I know he did not or has not stayed in contact with his siblings. I came across this site trying to search for Mildred Downing info. I would just like to try and find my family. I would be very grateful for any info, even if this is not the right Downing Family. Thank you for your time.

Traci's Mom
Token you left for Traci Fields
Because of wonderful findagrave friends, Traci now has 5,482 flowers/tokens. My goal was for Traci to receive 5,000 flowers by her birthday which was 11/20. That count has gone much higher. It is now 6,292. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! We appreciate you so much.

I'm in awe! To show you more of what Traci was like, I added the following: (which I wrote)

"Traci, my angel, I can see the big grin on your face for all the flowers you're receiving on your memorial page. You're telling me, "Mom, why are you so surprised there are so many good people in this world? You should have known that....." "You're right, sweetheart, I should have known".

Traci was a person of strong faith, and GOD took excellent care of her, and helped her through all her hardships! Her faith never wavered.

GOD, bless you, and thank you for your wonderful gift of Traci.

We've received an outpouring of so much love for Traci Thst has made our hearts very happy.

RE: Charles Snyder
Hi, Mary, thanks! I am a Booth, that is my maiden name. I know the story about Charles T. Booth is true, just don't know all the "whys". My aunts had both told me the story, and my one aunt was raised by Charles' son, and remembered going back to West Virginia when she was little. Also, by luck, I got confirmation from a great or great great aunt who still lived in the town Charles Booth was from, and she remembered Charles and the entire story and who his mother was, etc., but nobody could remember who the father was. I still live in the Dayton area, too. It is so easy to get caught up in family stories, I've done it myself helping people! Thanks, again!

RE: Charles Snyder
It has but I've never been able to confirm it. I know Christina is no relation at all, other than Charles Snyder's wife. Charles T. Booth's middle name is Thornton, and I've been pursuing that route, although I doubt I will ever be able to "prove" it. Charle's Booths's mom is Mariah Booth Arnett. She had three illegitimate children prior to marrying Branson Arnett, and all three of those children were by different fathers. However,there is a Thornton R. Weekley, same age as Mariah, living in close proximity to Mariah and actually ended up marrying (distantly) into the Booth family, that I think may be the father. Thornton is such an uncommon name, yet there is a Thronton Weekley and Charles Thornton Booth. I don't know Thornton's middle name, only the initial, and it is "R". Charle's illegitimate brother's name is Robert...could be the same father but I am only guessing. I have no proof with either. The Wright family was also living near the Booth's in 1870 and 1880, so I think that is the connection with giving Charles to Charles and Christina. Charles Snyder was injured in the Civil War (shot in the face and was partially blind and also had an arm or leg missing) so I think Charles was offered to them to help out. Again, just a guess.

RE: Charles Snyder
It wasn't a legal adoption. He was just given away to be raised by Charles Snyder and his wife, Christina. He was about 7 or 8 when this happened, so they/he never changed his last name. I am not sure why he was given away, but he was old enough to know, and he resented it from what I've been told. His mother also had two other children that she kept, before marrying Branson Arnett and having children/a family with Branson. Charles Booth was the only one of her children given away.

RE: Charles Snyder
You have a lot to take care of, that's for sure! If you want to transfer it to me, that is fine. I wasn't sure how to add the information to Charles Snyder's memorial since he was an adopted parent, but I like adding information in case someone is looking for him.

RE: Mathew Beeman
I work on graves in Mound & noticed the parentage link to Matthew in Evergreen. Thanks for linking them for me. I appreciate it. Keep up the good work. I notice how you've been working on Evergreen. I need to get back in there & take some replacement pictures. A lot of the pictures I need to replace were taken with my old camera. Thanks again!!
