Thanks so much John for your response; your information matches what I have in my gen file, that makes me happy! On another note - love the photo of you and your Dad; and thanks so much for the research you are doing on this lineage - just wish others were as diligent in posting correct information! Thanks again!

Catharine Barrier Massy and Jacob
Just a note of interest - Catharine Barrier Massy Memorials (2 posted is same cemetery)# 116448826 and # 55865070 wife of Jacob Massy (spelled Massey) on memorial # 116448775

On the headstone the name is spelled MASSY as is Jacob's name on the Marriage Bond posted on his memorial.. as well as many other documents i.e. Revolutionary War Pension, Marriage Records of Rowan NC, etc.

Jacob's memorial has him buried in Mount Moriah; is there any documentation he is buried there. No headstone exists that has been found there. Massy/Massey history has him buried in Montgomery Co., Kentucky.

Do you have any information to clarify? Thanks so much.. I am related through the Massy/Barrier lineage.

RE: Massey's
Hi John,

Nice to meet you to. Sorry it is taking so long to get back to you. I am currently trying to breakthrough many brick walls in my family tree.
I am also on as Dawn Raabe. The Wright family tree* is the tree I use. The Massey line comes in thru Bonnie Bratton (my Mother), Norma Wilson, Rebecca Willis, Wm Henry Willis, John Willis' wife Nancy Massey. I don't believe that any male ancestors on that side of the family have done a DNA test. I don't know any of them. I guess I could look for some and ask. I will look up the FB groups you mentioned.
Dawn Wright Raabe (Ohio line)
my email address is
I live in Las Vegas, NV

Hi, I am looking into my family genealogy also and an related to the Massey's from Ohio, Maryland and England. I would be interested if you had any information on the family.
Thanks, Dawn

RE: Finda a grave memorial photo
Hi John
I believe I have photographed all keckleys (sorry if I spelled it wrong) in the cemetery or atleast all the ones with a readable marker. I will have to take a look on another photo chip that I have. If I dont see it I will take another walk through the cemetery before the end of the month.
Happy Huntings :)

The only Elmer Keckley we could find is Elmer S. Keckley, but he was born in 1875. :(

RE: Francis Marion Massey
Your very welcome, John! Smiled when I went to his memorial page this morning and saw the picture you posted, and that he was a Civil War Veteran. My son and his family are Civil War reenactors.

Though am no relation to your family, was honored to leave a memorial flower in Mr. Massey's memory.

Wishing you a nice upcoming weekend and thanking you for your kind personal message, John!

Sparky's a doll isn't she :-)

I have sent you an e-mail with the information you're looking for.

Hi John. I saw your request for a George Massey in Mount Airy Cemetery, Momence, IL.
I took on Mt Airy as a project last year and photographed every single stone there. Sadly, many of the stones are damaged.

A transcription I have from 1920 does show that George is buried there. I also have a Rachel - died in 1883.

I am going back for a new stone today. I will be happy to recollect where the other Masseys are and email you directly any damaged stones I can photograph. However, I am not comfortable fulfilling it as a request because it will be hard to prove.

I know a man named 'Jensen' is on the board. Although I have yet to find a first name or a contact. The guy mowing the lawn told me the last name. :)

And in the future, if you ever happen to dig up a burial log or plot map it would be invaluable to me, as I have about 50 names, and 40 unreadable stones, that I would love to match up!

I will update you after my findings today.
