|Charlene Sinclair||Rev Asahel Thornbrue|
Rev Asahel Thornbrue was the youngest brother
of my ggg grandfather. I don't have anything
like that but when I've searched old newspapers, I've seen him mentioned in funeral or wedding announcements.
|Claudette Darling||RE: Jacob Francisco|
Sorry, but I cannot help you with that question. It is a possibility, like you say, that Jacob could have been transferred to another unit. It seems as though the records for the New York Militia are few and far between.
|Claudette Darling||Jacob Francisco|
I'm glad that you contacted me regarding your ancestor, Jacob Francisco. I found information regarding his War of 1812 service from the Bounty Land Warrant, #59010, that was awarded to his widow, Fanny, on 1 Sept. 1853. It was filed in Ionia, Michigan (the land office for this area) and the 40 acres awarded to her were assigned to a Russell Canfield. It says, "Fanny Francisco, widow of Jacob Francisco, private in Captain Crittendon's Co., New York Militia, War of 1812. You might be interested in getting a copy of this interesting document. Go to the website: http://www.glorecords.blm.gov. Fill in Jacob's name, and the state of Michigan, and you should be able to print a copy. Fanny also filed a claim to the state of New York. It was called "New York Military Equipment Claim." Her claim number was #14,300, and she was awarded $55.00. Sometime after 1850 the state reimbursed the veterans of the War of 1812 for their personal expenses incurred while in service. I hope this information is helpful.

My husband's Orr family lived in Transylvania County. I am curious if you know the parents of Depew so I can link him to our tree.
|AWisz||RE: Photo Request|
Unfortunately, I do not know where the cemetery is. I have heard it is in or near Bat Cave, NC. I have seen people describing where it is on different genealogy forums. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

|Satter3380||Kimzey's are Sorted!|
The Kimzey's your refernced in the reporting error message have been sorted out.
The Julia Frances Kimzey was buried in the Shepherd Memorial Park, Henderson County, NC. She has a findagrave page, but no gravestone photo is on it.
Julia is of my family as are her brothers Allen Tabor Kimzey, Jr. and John Venning Kimzey also referenced in the reporting letter. Are the photos of the headstones you have for them in the Mills River Presbyterian Church Cemetery? I don't have their place of burial in my records.
I suspect the referenced Nancy O. Kimzey is Nancy Odom Kimsey, born 10 Aug 1915 and died 15 September, 2002. Nancy was the spouse of Allen, Jr. Neither Nancy and Allen, Jr. nor John V. have findagrave pages.
If you will confirm these three were buried in Mills Presbyterian Church Cemetery, I will make findagrave pages for them so you can post their gravestone photos. I have about 10 known Kimzey's buried in Mills River Presby.
Thank you for the great help. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for the photos of Ray and his wife.
