|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:

I added the photo Welthy Dean. Would you send me an email and tell me how you are related to the Dean's? My husband is a descendant of Louisa Dean.
|Kem Hart-Baker||Latham Family burials in NIchols Cemetery|
I was wondering about Albert Latham's burial in Nichols Cemetery.
May I inquire as to where you obtained your info regarding his burial as there is NO record of it in the Nichols Cemetery burial records which date back to first burial on record as 1834 for Uri Pearsall.
I'd like to be able to update their information but need documentation to validate his burial location within the cemetery.
PS. I'll be taking the additional photos within the next day or so for the outstanding Latham's headstone requests - I have their burial locations.
I posted the pictures of Sidney, Clara and Clarissa from the Nichols Cemetery. I will also post the pictures of Henry and Lena. I could not find Herbert and Edith. They were not in the family plot. There was Millison Latham Schmoll and her husband Harrison Andrew Schmoll. I do have that picture. I will try try to find the other two the next time i go back to Nichols. I grew up there but have since moved to NC.

I'm filling your photo request for the Turners. There are about a dozen smaller Turner stones around the one larger one, in case you are searching for more. "Each Day Counts", Loretta
|Eric Weber||RE: Village Cem, Cummington, Hampshire Co, Massachusetts|
Done. I had started to post the photo on Chester's memorial too, but I guess I didn't finish the process. I discovered the error and corrected it a little later.
|Kathy Salazar||William & Gertrude McMillan photo requests|
Buried next to William and Gertrude are two others:
Donald Squier McMillan 1906-1960 and
Maude Squier Alexander 1870-1949
Please send me their memorial page numbers so I can post their headstones. Thanks for your help.
|DuxburyDan||Mayflower Cemetery, Duxbury.|
HANNAH,HOSEA,JOSHUA DELANO/DEBORAH ALDEN: Photo requests have been fulfilled. Note: Deborah's marker has "died June 17, 1804" whereas the record notes 1807.
|Charles L Heaton||RACKLEY|
I also have photos of Clara Gratia Rackley, Ben Rackley, Ruth White Rackley, Joseph L Rackley, and James Rackley. These were all in the plot with Olive.
In another location was a Ben Rackley in a plot mark by a Plot stone bearing the name ALBRIGHT WITH RACKLEY Directly under it.
If you need any of these just let me know by either requesting or email.
Have a nice day
|Robert Kuhmann||Harriet S WARNER # 68434682|
My son, his mother and grandma are VanVALIN descendants. Their ties to the WARNER line are through a VanVALIN-WARNER marriage (via PIPER), c.f. #27321849 & #27321888. I am trying to descern if Harriet S. WARNER (and her husband) are related to us or not. Clearly, her maiden-name will be the key. The WARNER-CALDWELL connection is also of interest to us, since my son's 4th & 5th GGrand-parents travelled with, and settled with pioneers: Tyler and Joseph CALDWELL (brothers) ...and their families. All reached Wisconsin in 1835-36. Tyler's wife was a WARNER. All were persons known in life to our RESSEGUIE people (who married into VanVALIN). See also: #42598857 & #90377604 and #69877005 & #69877305. Our RESSEGUIE folks: #42163588 & #61062656 as well as #40898797 & #42149810. The WARNER / CALDWELL / RESSEGUIE knew each other well, and all were present at the "Ouisconsin Territory, Pike River" settlement when it was but a dozen log cabins and less than 100 souls (a total wilderness, on the shores of Lake Michigan)! P.S. I have the book, "Descendants of Andrew Warner". My charts are online at [link] best-viewed with Mozilla Firefox (which will display the SVG graphics):
