Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a family genealogist (amateur). I've been doing research for about 30 years. Family names that I research: White, Baird, Lavender, Gragg, Meador, Wampler, Curtis. Husband's line: Fortune, Cutler, Stiles, Robertson, Gardner, Belyea, Bishop.... and sometimes, I do research for friends or relatives, thus my interest in Ludwig, McDaniel, Acuff, Withrow, Rogers, and Post.

I like to tend my butterfly garden in the summer and attend bluegrass concerts and festivals. I've been retired since 2002 and I'm lovin' it.

Most of the memorials I manage here are my own family. Please let me know of any errors or additions. If you are related, I would love to hear from you. And, if you are more closely related to someone than I am, I will probably transfer to you.

Feel free to ask me for copies of pictures. The posted pictures have been cropped or scaled down. You are welcome to use any of my pictures for personal use only--please do not use them for commercial purposes.

Fortune Website
Yes...I did see the website, but I was looking at the Bridgwater/Close/Weddington side rather than Bishops. I'll have to take another look. The Bishop's I was looking at were in CT just prior to 1888/1889. I have a record of everyone at the Kinderhook IL baptist church in 1888/89 from a quilt made by the baptists ladies aid society...probably auctioned/sold to raise money. It has 419 names stitched into it..along with where they are from. I have many Andrews on the list (from the Andrews/Colvin/Sprague family of Pike..Andrews from CT)and many Bishops of Conn. I'm not certain of any connection...just folks in the same place and time from Conn. If you ever think this might be useful for research let me know. I've spent time on the list and I'd be happy to have it put to use.

your husbands BISHOP side
Are the Bishops in your husbands line from Pike IL? I've been looking into the Andrews family of Pike from CT. I believe they're assoc.with the Bishops of CT and Pike IL. ...been trying to find the link between the two.

RE: Capt. James White #6207693
Hello, I took this picture on his cemetery, that's how. If you want me to take it out and I will. Are you related? Have a nice evening!

Folger Starbuck
I noticed that you manage a memorial for this family. Are you related? Peter Folger, also from Nantucket, was my 8th great and also was Benjamin Franklin's grandfather.

RE: Shared Webb Headstone
Nedra, if The Old Genealogist manages her memorial, he's the one who wrote the note. You can try an e-mail to him and see where he got the information.

RE: Shared Webb Headstone
Nedra, it was Highland. A local genealogist compiled books on Highland and all but a half dozen other county cemeteries. In his notes for Mary Webb, he has a comment that a nephew, Claude Jennings, stated she was buried in California. The note doesn't indicate where in California or when she died.

RE: Shared Webb Headstone
I took new photos a couple of days ago and uploaded them today. Cemetery records indicate she is buried in California.

RE: Caroline (Hill) Baird
The reference is from History of Cass County People, By Cass County Genealogical Society, Atlanta, Texas and they reference family bible records for the birthdate.
