Bio and Links
Member of the DAR and SGS holding degrees in History & Education. I am working on the women in my family as my main focus. There seems to be no end to searching for the family ties.

I have been working on the family history for over thirty years,following in my Great Uncles footsteps. My roots have lead me to Connecticut, Maryland, Overton Co. TN, Jefferson Co. Kentucky and Norway.
I'm a nice blend of the New and the Old.

Celia Harrison 108408787
The 1870 can't apply to this person since she died in 1851. The census shows Celia as being age 46 with the last name Story.

RE: Harrisons
Have you ever where & when Ben died? I was told by my g=mother Lauta Jessie Harrison that his wife (Jane Stewart) was a bitch & he was headed home & was never seen again.
She said that her dad thought he went up into Ky., & just stayed there.

Mary-Elizabeth, the birth and death dates match, she has the name Minnie on her memorial marker. Ole is also on the marker.

Josiah Gibson
Mary Elizabeth,

There is no family connection. I try to track down Civil War veterans & Josiah was on the list back in November 2012. I was not the one who took his headstone photo.
Sorry, I do not have any additional info on Josiah. Be proud of your Great Great grandfather.

Anna Anderson
I have been looking for Anna Andersons marker in Greenwood Cemetery in Centralia, Wa. While records show she is buried there, no location is on the record. Her sister Carrie Sparre is also buried here and her record does not show a location either. I walked the cemetery and did not see either marker. They may be unreadable or covered over.
Her son Alberts record shows where he is located. I couldn't locate his Mother and Aunt nearby. Before his death he purchased two lots. One for himself and one for his sister Josephine. There are no records that show she was buried here.

RE: Edwin Paddock
I'll be happy to create links for you, but would like to retain management of the memorial.

Hi Mary-Elizabeth.

If you'd like to provide memorial numbers for the wife and daughter of Edwin Paddock, I'll be happy to make the links.

RE: Helping the Huotari Family

We had a list of about 20 graves we had "claimed" to photograph, so it wasn't a problem that you started or created. According to Laura she does this all of the time, and that is probably why people have quit and not gone to photograph the graves they claimed. It is a shame. I have made a complaint to find-a-grave about her and they are monitoring her activities in this way.

I'm really glad that you got your photos!! Thanks so much for the message.

James McBath
I have researched the final resting place for James McBath and he is not buried in the Amador Memorial Cemetery, in Pioneer, CA. He is buried in the West Point Cemetery in West Point, CA. I'm 'unclaiming' this request, as there may be volunteers closer to West Point, who take pics of the headstones. I think you'll need to take this request down & put up another one for the West Point Cemetery.
