|I became interested in Genealogy as a HS teenager from the 1977 mini Series ROOTS. It came on at the same time my Birth Certificate had arrived in the mail (for Driver's License).|
That mere document became a 35 + year passion, GENEALOGY. It also lead me to the opportunity to be employed as a Probate Deputy Clerk for 12 years in Ohio, restoring several Cemeteries, helping to Charter two Genealogical Societies, one in Ohio and one in Wis., currently a member of several southern WI societies and active in a couple. I'm so thankful we now have F.A.G., which keeps me busy sontributing names and information onto, for our future generations.
That Birth Certificate lead me to Mineral Pint, Iowa County, Wisconsin for my mother's Maternal side, who were all Irish Catholic and Scotch/Irish: COLLINS/CALLAN, GILMORE,CROW(E),McARDLE,CUNNINGHAM,CALHOUN,DUNBAR... and her Paternal side, who were English: JACKSON, HARRIS, STEVENS, HEATH.... and West Virginia for my father: HEATHERLY, REEL, BOLTON, STOCKWELL, ANGLIN,McCLUNG,CARTER/CARDER,HOGBIN... The majority of these took me back to Barbour, Harrison, Randolph and Greenbrier counties of West Virginia until the industrial revolution hit the mid west, and my grandparents, Wm. Boyd & Bertha (REEL)HEATHERLY left the mountains of Keyser, Mineral Co., WV, where their first child Edna was born, (Dec 20, 1906), struck out ca 1906-1910 for East Moline, Rock Co., IL, where my father, Carl Raymond Heatherly was born in 1910, where the industrial revolution was booming, all through out the Great Lakes and throughout the Midwest.
Prior to Huricane Katrina, I'd been in touch with my Calhoun cousin, Eunice Cunningham Calhoun Wymand, only to first loose her with her passing and then to loose track of her descendants when Katrina struck. Eunice's mother was my Gr. Gr. Grandmother's niece. Sadly I was not able to get my photos and Eunice's immediate family updated or assist them in identifying the box of photos that her son said he had. Can anyone help me to get back in touch with them again?

|Emily Bush||RE: Robert Grant Collins|
You are very welcome. I have seen this happen before. I believe they did a mass up load and as with everything errors can be made. I looked him up on the VA locator and it matches the headstone so I would believe it is correct. I have even seen where a grave was left out of a cemetery on here which was very odd since they usually are pretty up to date but in that case he wasn't even on the locator which I believe is where all the Find A Grave info comes from. Below is the link to the locator with the death date that matches the headstone. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with . http://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/index.html

I have to question myself now. I cannot locate a death certificate for Abby, in lot 813 there is Abby in lot 1 Benjamin lot 2 Laura lot 3 unknown cw soldier lot 4 unknown cw soldier lot 5, William G Stevens lot 6 occupant unknown lot 7, There are no buriel dates which means they all died prior to 1889 or so as a fire destroyed records.
I cannot locate any census information on Ben and Abby for 1850, I did find cw records for Benjamin, but now I am confused as I cannot locate any census info that would have his sons.
As I recall but now am not sure Laura was a 2nd wife, there is a Benjamin F. Stevens who died in Concord, NH 1882 parents are benjamin and abigail.
Where are you that you are getting more snow, we are hearing flurries which could be a foot!
I am trying to figure out how to get more info from familysearch.org am looking for my Great Great Grandfather Rufus P. Bissell who lived in Jay, Essex County New York, believed he died around 1900-1906. He is like smoke!

Hi, I know this lot so well, 813, I could walk to it in my sleep! There are two civil war soldiers (unknown) in this site. Benjamin Stevens is the owner of this lot and I believe Abbie was his first wife.
The stones are limestone which has not stood well against time and the weather, but somewhere in my zillions of cemetery photos I have it and if I can't find it I will get it in the spring.
I believe the two unknown civil war soldiers are Ben and Abby's two sons. They are small stones and unreadable and my assumption is from the census and civil war records matching the son's names.
Thank you so much for sending me this information. I am going to go back in my many, many notes I have and see what I can locate further.
How in the world did you obtain bible records from within the Morman Church?
I will be in touch with further informtion on Abby, Ben and possible a second wife.

|Pastor Bob Douglas||RE: Re: Adrain & Nancy Anglin's Photo|
Susie, YOU CERTAINLY CAN use the photo....any photo you want. They are NOT my photos....they belong to all of us. I married into the Anglin Family. My wife, Judy Anglin, lived just a "stone's throw" from the Stoney Point Cemetery. My father was the pastor at the Mount Tabor Church of God for 11 years. We were all born and raised in that area. I have been in the ministry for nearly 40 years and have served in six states. We currently live in Sarasota, FL. Feel free to contact me anytime.
