I have been interested in family history since 1978 and have enjoyed doing family research since that time. I love this website and have been adding memorials for our family. I hope, if you view any of my memorials you will contact me so I can share what ever information I might have. Some of my family memorials I have listed, not knowing the cemetery, in hopes someone who sees them may be able to tell me. I also have been adding memeorials for my daughter's in-laws family and some from the local cemeteries. So either way, I can possibly tell you something about a number of my memorials. I welcome your questions, comments, corrections etc. I have met some really nice and helpfull people through Find A Grave. It is my most sincere desire to help someone add new data to their research so plese feel free to contact me.
I see you are handling my great-great-grandfather's memorial (James Simon Clifton)! However, there are a few things that need to be corrected.
There was a James Simon T. Clifton, but he lived and died in Chester County, SC per the director of Geneology at USC. However, this James Simon Clifton was different. His father was a Jesse Clifton and his mother was Nancy Catherine Beckham.
Now, it is possible that this Jesse Clifton was his father, but I believe Catherine Beckham divorced him and changed her name back to Beckham. I suspect that Jesse moved to Chester County, remarried, and had more children, and named one of his sons James Simon T. Clifton. There's obviously too much a coincidence in names being very similar,so it could be the same father, but these are two different James Simon Clifton's. The one buried at Mount Carmel is Just James Simon Clifton Sr. His son James Simon Clifton Jr is my great-grandfather. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com, or call me at 910-805-0318.
Catherine Boone and Isaac Edwards I note that messages I left yesterday have been removed. I am not sure why, but the Isaac Edwards whose tombstone you have recorded was not married to Catherine Rosanna Boone. There were two Catherine's in question, and that's why there is confusion. Isaac Edwards was my 5th great-grandfather. There was a Catherine Rosanna Boone who was the daughter of Joseph Boone and Catherine Brown of Exeter County, Pa.
Catherine Rosanna Boone, according to other records was born 1738, and died 1813,Lincoln County, NC
My 5th great-grandmother,Catherine Boone who married Isaac Edwards Sr. was born in Guilford County, North Carolina, and died February 1835, at Little Reed, Carroll County, VA. If you need more information I will be happy to share what I can with you. Jean Mayfield Cuevas
RE: James Edward Quinn Hey Rita I got the contact information on the bottom of this page about the cemetery: http://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/national_cemeteries/district_of_columbia/us_soldiers_and_airmens_home_national_cemetery.html I believe the only two national cemeteries the Army runs are Arlington and Soldiers'/Airmen's -- perhaps they share a contact phone number? Best wishes to you -- I hope you're able to find the information.
Montgomery Cem. I hope you can be of help. The tombstone of James Montgomery Quesenberry and his wife Robbie Lee Sayers was laying on it's face when we were there years ago. Would you or would you know someone who might have a picture of it when it was standing? It is very heavy and it would take a lot of effort to lift it. James and Robbie were my great grandparents. She died young and he married twice after that. He must have loved her deeply to have wanted to be buried beside her. Some of the other folks buried there are family also. Thanks for all the work you do and the time you spend adding the information us folks who live out of state. Ginnie Wohlford Singleton
RE: Nancy Edwards You are very welcome. Thanks for updating the memorial! As I said before, I never mind giving my reasons or documentation. I think it's wonderful that you care enough about the memorials that you manage to make sure information is correct! Thanks again. -Susan
