|Bio and Links|
|I have been doing genealogy for about 11 years trying to find out about my ancestors. Luckily, many of them were from this area. I have spent many hours walking through cemeteries looking at headstones. When I found out about this website, I figured I could help someone out while I am doing my own research.|
I am always searching for descendents of my ancestors. I have found a handful of cousins that I never knew existed that live in this area. It is very rewarding when you can find 'living' relatives after finding so many relatives who are gone. It's sad and frustrating when you find someone, only to realize that they died a year ago or two years ago! Think of all the stories they would have had!
I descend from families mostly in the Delaware area, mostly in New Castle. However, some of my ancestors moved on to Philadelphia, Chester, Virginia and who knows where? The family names I am related to are:
King, Barnes, Point, Fogg, Speicher, Truitt, Rossell, Gallagher, Cannon, Rigby, Lamb, Watts, Dobbs.
My mother was from Hawaii. My ancestors from Hawaii are Parker (Parker Ranch on the Big Island), Purdy, Lindsey, Palmer and Lopes. The Lindseys, Parkers and Palmers are originally from Newton, Mass.

hello Steve, my name is Paula McHugh and I too am doing the family ancestry tree.. We are currently working on the Rossells side of the family, my great grandmother was Mary Emma Rossell who married Israel McHugh.. We found Kings recently when we added the Barnes side of the family which I believe is you. Maybe you can shed some light on this side of the family, My father is a McHugh of course, My Mother and Antonio.. But on fathers side, its Barnes, Rossell, Leonards, Maguire's.. I just recently talked to two Rossell's to gain some information.. Could you please email me at email@example.com and I will give better contact information so we can talk.. Thank you.. Paula McHugh

You have his birth 1886, but his mother's birth is 1876. Error ? Also was she not married ?
|june gorman||Hanai's death|
You have her death as March but the actual photo of the stone states August

I did a little research and found some information on John F. Barnes and have added it to his page. Hopefully it will help with your research.

It's okay! I appreciate your time! I understand how life gets in the way of doing the stuff we want to do. If you are able, I can be patient and if you can't, I totally understand that too!!

Thank you, Scott!

Thank you, Scott, for your time and efforts to find information for me. Could I ask you again what the caretaker told you. I want to add it to his memorial. It verifies that he was, in fact, buried there, correct? I searched e-mail and cannot find your first contact. Thank you, Mary
Thanks so much for the response on the photo request. I believe all the Higgins' would be related and any photos you can take would be greatly appreciated. Dave.
