|Bio and Links|
|Genealogy has been a serious business for me since I was in grade school. I documented and discovered that my 3rd great-grandmother Laura A. (WHITMARSH) MILLER's parents Horace WHITMARSH & Clarissa Mitchell (WARNER) WHITMARSH were both Mayflower descendants. I tracked the surname GILMORE back to Capt. James GILMORE of Rockbridge Co, Virginia. (Thanks to the late Shelby GILMORE for his ground breaking research in the 1960-70s.) Turns out that he was present at the Battle of Yorktown where poor Cornwallis discovered that yes he would be famous but no not for something to land him in to #10 Downing Street. Other discoveres include proving Mennonite ancestry via the BINKLEY orig BINGELLI and STAUFFER lines. |
Corrections & Questions: Use the S.A.C. for corrections and please differentiate facts from from suppositions and might be for the benefit of other researchers. Also if it's a question that I don't have an instant answer for that requires further research remember that the facts are the foundation for the solution. Correction and question e-mails should NOT be deletion requests as those requesting deletions are considered a nuisance and are treated accordingly. Include your e-mail address in the S.A.C. and you must have your findagrave.com messages visible to the public. If you are requesting links include the findagrave code number after each person.
Transfers: Most of the the virtual graves I manage are blood kin in some way. I don't transfer direct ancestors or very close relatives of my grandparents. For others that can happen if you are more closely related than me.
First: leave some kind of flower on the virtual grave in question. Use the correct e-mail (NOT a message on my profile) that includes your e-mail address (required) and tell me how you are related. If the person is someone I'm not related to I usually transfer these type immediately. (Unless you ask if you have other relatives buried in the same cemetery. In that case I might need that virtual grave as a reference point for easy access because non-relatives will not be in my internal database.) I probably know very little about a non-relative so someone who is a relative should manage them.
Second: If I am related but you are a closer relative to that person --- I will look at my internal database --- I may have questions for you! I may have active research that I conducting on that person and/or his/her near relatives. So just because I don't transfer a relative immediately doesn't mean no if I don't say no. Before I transfer a relative I back check my internal database to make sure what I have there matches findagrave. If you send in the "correction" additional facts, crosslinks to parents or other updated data I need to fix BOTH areas. I have also been known to transfer a group of graves for the same family. If I am doing a group transfer I also back check each cemetery to see if there are other relatives of the person who don't have virtual memorials but should. All of this takes TIME which is a precious commodity and when it is done it should be done right the first time.
The type of transfers I absolutely will not do are any type of these three:
#1 Any of my direct ancestors and other close relatives of my grandparents.
#2 To people who are bulk collectors of virtual graves that do not transfer outside of guidelines.
#3 To people who have harassed others on findagrave.
These are direct line known surnames to my 7th great-grandparents. Note that on those from Norge I am trying to use "farm" names because surnames were not generally required by law till about 1900 in Norge. American & Canadian states/provinces are abbreviated in all caps. Other countries are spelled out preferably in that nation's first language. When you see a surname repeated that is because it is actually more than one unrelated surnames with the the surname coming closest to this current time listed first. Several of these families can be accessed through my multiple virtual cemeteries. Most of these, but not all, are public:

|DuxburyDan||Mayflower Cemetery, Duxbury|
Robert, I had a photo request from Janis Paulding Swanson for your Betsey Atwell (#100772713). There are death date problems with four of your six Atwell records. See the e-mail I sent you on 6-11-13. I fulfilled that photo request despite the date prob. because all names match, otherwise.
|SAnderson||RE: Center Cem, Southampton, Hampshire Co, Massachusetts|
Would you like me to transfer the Atkins memorials to you? They are not related to me; I just added because they are were all on the same headstone.
|DuxburyDan||Standish/Dingley/Mayflower Cemetery, Duxbury|
REBECCA (STANDISH CEM) and REUBEN (DINGLEY CEM) PETERSON/ANER ALDEN (MAYFLOWER CEM): The photo requests have been fulfilled. The first two photos are slightly better than the ones previously posted - very shady areas. At any rate I gave the transcriptions for each.
|Moggie73||RE: Gurney in Whitman, Ma|
Hi, I have uploaded a couple of the pictures I took, and to be blunt it was stressful and I didn't do a very good job of it. I have a bunch of pictures of "Gurney" headstones, some of them are not even listed as being in Mt. Zion cemetery I have an Alfred, Lucius and icabob Gurney. Is there any way I can email you the pictures I have and you can do with them what you wish? Thanks

|Larry Stuart Cox||Jonathan and Joseph Ccox|
In response to your question, it is a fact that Jonathan Cox and Joseph Cox were sons of the same father, John cox, Sr. 1754-1826. However John Cox, Sr had two wives. Jonathan was the son of John and Sarah. Joseph was the son of wife #2, Martha. She reportedly died in 1822 in Posey County, Indiana and buried in the Cox Farm cemetery along with John Sr. Jonathan and Joseph would be half brothers. My research records show that Johnathan was married to Elizabeth Hayes as you have indicated. This has been substantiated by two genealogy researchers of the John Cox Sr family. One was Carroll O. Cox of Poseyville, Indiana and the other was Rev. John Emery Cox of Evansville, Indiana. Both are deceased and were direct descendants of John Cox Sr. Likewise, so am I. I would be pleased to share with you any information I have on my Cox ancestry research at your request. Cordially, Larry S. Cox email@example.com
|TiogaRose||re: James Brandon #79962249|
Oakwood is the city's historical cemetery. It is quite large and is still active. For the date you are looking for I would begin there.
But remember that she could be buried in any one of them including the smaller cemeteries that I know nothing about.
|TiogaRose||re: James Brandon #79962249|
Thank you for entering James plot #.
As for his wife, I didn't find her name in the list. Maybe it just got missed somehow. But it is quite possible that she is next to James.
I did find a Minnie Ann Brandon that is located very near James, but the burial date is 1923.
As for Parsons cemeteries... I know where 4 of them are located and they're names, but I really know nothing about them. If you want the names of the ones I know, they are (Memorial Lawn, Mt. Olivet, Calvary, and Oakwood.)
|Jerry Fair||Peter Fair|
Just a note to let you know that your memorial for Peter Fair in the Bethel Cemetery is incorrect. My cousin Jean has the correct Bethel Cemetery. Jean even has a photograph of Peter's grave marker that she took in 1989. Would you please make the necessary corrections regarding links his children. Peter's correct memorial is: 110350867. In the meanwhile, I would appreciate if you would remove my bio information from Peter's memorial.
