Bio and Links
Bio Photo I do this mainly for family research. Most of the memorials I have made are family. I do have a few friends or a few friends' family. If those memorials are for your family send me a message and I'll transfer. Any memorials I have sent edits for, they are most likely my family or related to someone in my family and if needed I can send info on my edits. I think the family links are important to the people trying to get past a road block in the family tree.

Memorial 137594849
I was wondering if you had any info on Joseph Hammons who was the son of William Henry Hammons and Nancy Ellen Smith Hammons Teegaurden. Joseph and his (first?) wife Mollie (sister of my great grandmother) had a daughter named Betty Ellen Hammons who was listed as Betty Teegarden and residing in the same household as her grandmother Nancy and her step-grandfather Albert Teegarden in the 1940 census. Betty lived close to my relatives in Knox County Kentucky in the late 40s and early 50s. We had heard that Betty had remarried in Knox County after her first husband died sometime in the 1980s, but that is the last info we had about her. Betty would be my great aunt's cousin - my great aunt's name is also Betty - and we would love to get in touch with her or her family.
Thank You

RE: Moses
You are too kind. I am sorry it took so long to take the photo. According to the book at the library, there was no marker for them so I had to get the location to get the photo of where they are buried. I noticed that there were three Moses names that did not have a photo of their markers. George William Moses is buried with his parents, James and Mary. There were no Moses grave markers in their section so I added the same photo as I did for James and Mary.

There is also Norman and Flora Moses. They are buried around Gabriel, Nina, James Henry, and Esther. I didn't see a marker for them when I took photos of the others, but I will look again and try to add a photo for theirs. I haven't had a chance to see if or how they are related to Gabriel. If you have any information on them, I would greatly appreciate anything you have so that I can have them linked to their family. I will let you know if I find out anything on them.

Have a great day!

RE: Luther VanWinkle
I found his mother's name by using the link that is provided when you search Greenwood Cem. page here on F.A.G. Cemetery records show Cora Mae VanWinkle as his mother. Sorry, but I do not know her maiden name

Token you left for Traci Fields
Thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!

This is something I wrote for Traci:

It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.

As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.

I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"

Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.

RE: Moses family
I think Mary's maiden name was Strait. I saw a birth record for Eliza (Edward's sister) that had her father as James and her mother as Mary Strait. You might want to check that surname.

I resent the obituaries. Let me know if you don't get them. I do not have a Facebook or a paid Ancestry account. I am an Ancestry guest on some relatives accounts that I help. I usually use the library Ancestry account to look information up when I need to.

How recent did James H. Moses, Jr. pass away? I am so sorry to hear that. My sympathy goes out to the family. It is so hard to see our loved one pass away.

Let me know if you still haven't receive my email. It may be going into your trash folder.

Whoops...I meant, I couldn't put the exact wording of the obituaries, not working. I swear my fingers do not do what I tell them to do. I think they are going on strike. :)

Sorry about that.

RE: Moses family
You haven't received my email of the Moses obituaries? I was able to send that before my email carrier was having technical difficulties. You should have them. I cannot put the exact working from the obituaries due to the copyright laws, but I put a summary of what they said.

I did find a book online that read that Henry's parents, Robert and Mary (Crist) Moses had 12 children (9 boys and 3 girls). Only two of the boys were still living at the time the book was written and they were Henry and Columbus. I found some US Census that had Elizabeth, Eliza, Jacob, Lydia, and Benjamin living with Robert and Mary. The book did tell a little about the three girls.

I need to head out for a little bit, when I return I will try to resend the obituaries and the link to the information about Henry and Columbus. Also, it said that Robert's parents were John and Catherine Moses.

I will see what else I can find.

RE: Moses family
I have a favor to ask. I was going to email you, but my email carrier is having technical difficulties. Would you happen to have the date of birth for James H. Moses? The birth year that is showing on his gravestone is different than what I am shows 1910. If he was 59 when he passed away in 1971, he would have been born in 1912 or 1911 (depending on his birth date). I found a SS Death Index that shows he was born in 1909. I am so confused!!! LOL I would appreciate any help you can give to update his memorial.

I hope you will not be offended if I have information from the Moses obituaries added to their memorials. I am not putting names of those that might still be living or if it was a tragic death...just basic information.

And...the Moses obituaries helped solve a mystery that I have been puzzling over for some time...YAY!!! I couldn't figure out why I couldn't find a Glenna Moses Huffer in the cemetery, now I know why...she remarried. One mystery solved, more Moses mysteries yet to be solved... especially who the mystery Mr. Moses is that died in 1918.

Thank you for inspiring me.

Have a great day!

RE: Moses family
I went to the library to look up some Moses family obituaries. I have Eliza (Moses) Emrick, Anna (Moses) Gunckle, Edward Moses (aka Gabriel Edward Moses), William Moses (aka George William Moses), James H. Moses, Nina Moses, Paul E. Moses, and Irene (Moses)Shaffer. I also have Elizabeth (Moses) Eminger, John B. Moses and Nettie Moses, which are Henry C. Moses family. I need to find the date of death for Henry’s other daughter, Grace Hoffman, before I can look for her obituary. Gladys E. (Moses) Kuch and June (Moses)Bramlett's obituary are already on their memorials.

If you need any of these, let me know and we will figure out how I can get your email address to send them to you. Just let me know which one/ones you need.

I was hoping they would have information on who their parents were, but I didn't have any luck. Unless I overlooked it when I was browsing through them. I was hoping to find a connection between the different Moses families at that cemetery. Sorry I couldn't help you find the connection.

Hope this helps,

Moses family
I wonder if Edward and James extend from Henry Crist Moses family. This is the information I have on Henry...

Henry's parents were from Virginia. Their names were Robert and Mary (Crist) Moses. Robert was born in 1800 and Mary in 1802. They came to Montgomery County, Ohio in 1823. Robert died in January 1875 and Mary in April 1881.

Henry married Mary Ann McKeen August 19, 1847. Her parents were William and Elizabeth (Marsh) McKeen. Henry and Mary had four children: Charles and three of which died young. Mary died about 1855. Henry then married Grace Rowe in 1857. She was born in 1822. Henry and Grace had five children: John, Grace, Elizabeth and two that died at an early age.

Elizabeth married Charles Eminger. They had two children:

Harry Eminger – married Helen (?). They had a daughter, Margaret, who married Richard Tuggle.

Lena Eminger – married Samuel D. Judy. They had three children: Harold (his children were Jack, Robert, and Joseph Mark.), Clara Elizabeth, and Helen Louise (married someone with the surname Pazitka).

Henry Moses owned 267 acres of land about a half mile north of Germantown, of which 107 acres were in the home tract.

This information is from “A History of Germantown, Ohio and Biographical Sketches” by Marcella Henry Miller (Mrs. Emerson) 1962.

Robert and Mary Moses are buried at Fairview Cemetery in Gratis, Ohio. I put in a request today to link them with Henry.

That is all the information I have right now on the Moses family in Germantown. I hope it helps.
