Hi! I became interested in Genealogy as a HS teenager, when these three factors came about at the same time: 1) I relocated to Champaign Co., OH to reside with a sibling. Initially and merely out of pure boredom, I became interested in cleaning up an old, uncared for cemetery that was on our way to town and within our Concord Twp. 2) The 1977 television mini series, ROOTS, came on; and 3) my Birth Certificate (that I'd never seen or knew of the names on it), had arrived in the mail in order for me to obtain my driver's license. All three events came together like a tornado and thus I began my 35 + year passion for GENEALOGY and love of history. 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 (Champaign Co., OH and one in Green Co., WI. I'm currently a member of several Southwestern WI genealogical and/or societies, but activly in Green, Lafayette and Iowa. I'm so thankful we now have F.A.G., which keeps me busy contributing 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,RYAN,CROW(E),McARDLE,CUNNINGHAM,CALHOUN,DUNBAR... and her Paternal English side: JACKSON, HARRIS, STEVENS, HEATH.... and West Virginia for my father: HEATHERLY, REEL, BOLTON, STOCKWELL, ANGLIN,McCLUNG,CARTER/CARDER,HOGBIN...,the majority of those 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, as well as all through out the Great Lakes and throughout the Midwest.
My Foster Family names include: CALL, NICHOLS, PATTERSON, Goodwin/Gordain, and HARDY of Rock, Dane and Richland Counties of Wisc.
*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? Susie

I didn't add Thomas Harris out of disrespect to you already having it there. I didn't search the site for him. I was adding other family members and just added Thomas and Charlotte to the site. I have deleted my link and will be adding his link ( that you created ) to his wife and children. I am sorry for making you mad over this.

In those cases, I just contact Find A Grave and have them merge his info into yours and they can delete his

I won't over load the suggestions, I'll do a couple a week. Also I'll be sending information on the Suthers side. Thanks for adding the information to my wife's family.

Hello Susie- I just stumbled on the F.A.G. website from Ancestry.com while scratching around for some information about an uncle. Stephen C. Terrill was my maternal grandfather. My mother was his daughter, Dorothy Jane Terrill Helmers. I have access to a lot of genealogy that she had done on the Terrill side of the family but have not reviewed it in a long time. It appears that my great-aunt Charity Terrill Collins must have been related to you. I would be interested in hearing from you.

The markers do not have deep engraving, unfortunately, and are fairly weathered.
However, a lot has to do with the time of
day they were photographed, so they are actually much more legible than they appear in the photos.
I ended up not having much time at the park.
Section E has no numbering markers...or at
least not many. To find John and Frances, I
walked up and down the rows of gravestones
until I happened upon them. I covered a little
more than half of Section E before finding
them. Anyway, happy to help out.

I took photos of that side which I just put on the website memorial for them. I forgot to look for them when I returned from the cemetery. This is what is on that side you can see:
Died Aug. 8, 1898
Aged 79 YRS.
Katie C. Crow
Dec. 14, 1879
Aged 13 YRS.
May They Rest In Peace
I took a photo of the front side of the monument as well. Unfortunately I was not able to get a legible picture. Since the front side has the surname on it of CROW it may be Timothy but I can't read anything on it but the surname at the base of the stone. If I get back there I will check into it.
Right next to this stone is another Crow stone with Thomas and Maggie listed. As soon as I get some time I will put that on the website if they have memorials listed.
