Bio and Links
I am really enjoying doing research on ancestors. Find A Grave photos have helped me confirm dates that I've questioned.

**I have added photos and memorials for those that are not yet on Find A Grave. I am very open to transferring management for the memorials of folks that are not on my family tree.**

The list of names I'm researching are:
Hylton, Woolum, Cupp, Hoffine, Glass, Thomas, Carpenter, and MANY others!

I look forward to taking more photos in Floyd County, Virgina and central Ohio.

Inez Hylton Quesenberry
Thanks for your prompt response. It has all bee sorted out now. No need to transfer management as she is not related to me.

Thank you,

I received your correction email regarding Inez Hylton Quesenberry being listed as a child of the incorrect Lillie May Hylton. This is a correction that would need to be submitted to the person that manages Inez' memorial as parents are added to the child's memorial not the child's added to the parents. Unfortunately, I have no access to make this correction.

Since I am not directly related, I can transfer management to you if you like.

I am not related to him either, I am a BOLT, related to his ex wife.

You are correct, they are connected, guess I need new glasses.

RE: John and Eleanor Cupp
Hi, Marie.

I found a death date for John of March 1862 from other family trees in Ancestry. I can't find any backup for the date, however.

As for Ellen, I don't have a date of death for her. I can't find anything after the 1870 census for Franklin Co., OH.

RE: George Newman #56331738
Thank you for your kind words. I do try to be as accurate as possible with my records to help others. As it turns out, my husband has his maternal line from Wood County and my mother's line came from Gallia County. So I've worked a lot in both those counties and, in fact, was there this past June doing more research. Still have oodles of material to sort through. Got an interesting book that was a collection of newspaper clippings back in the 1800s and early 1900s and have yet to even open it to see what goodies it might have.

I try to make a trip every other year and this was my time to get back to Ohio since I hadn't been there since 2010. Usually get enough material to keep me busy for a couple of years until it is time to make another trip!

Haven't worked on my mother's maternal side in Tennessee since 2010, so I guess I'm due for my 2016 trip to be in Anderson, Knox and Overton counties in Tennessee.

That is, assuming I'm still able to make those trips. Seem to be having more health issues, but got well enough to make a trip this year to Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, but found that I can no longer spend the long hours photographing cemeteries and even long hours at the library appears to be a little more taxing for me and I'm just 70 and though I wouldn't slow down this early!

But, according to my 8-yr-old grandson, 70 is ancient.

So far nothing has been done with the Oak Grove George, but then not everyone checks their emails daily. Me - I practically LIVE on my computer daily.

Happy hunting!

George Newman #56331738
It gets worse before it gets better. I did find an obit for him that referencing that he moved back to Gallia County a few years before he died. It also referenced his marriage to several wives. I created a record for him at Sandfork and put his obit on his record. I listed his 3 wives and then started to link him to his wives and found that not only do I have him listed at Bradner with a photograph that someone else took, of his marker with Edna, his 3rd wife, but when I tried to find his other two wives to link him to them, I found that someone else has his record (and the same photo of his marker with Edna) but listing him to be at Oak Grove. I believe that to be in error. His first wife may be buried at Oak Grove, but I think the marker with Edna is at Bradner. I made a note on the Bradner record that he is not buried here with his wife and created a link to the correct record at Sandfork. I also contacted the owner of the record at Oak Grove and I'm hoping that she will cooperate and get all the links pointing to the George in Sandfork. Whew! What a mess!

He's not listed at Sandfork. In fact there are no Newman's listed there. I'd like a little more proof like a photo of his tombstone down there or something that proves he's down there. Sorry, but not everyone gives me correct info and then someone else comes along and gets upset because of the info that was posted that ended up not being correct.

Any proof? Close relative of yours? Help me out, please. Thanks.
