Do you have any other contact info? P.S. I noted that you also have done sleuthing on other members of the Jones family. If you'd like to correspond I'm at

Barnes Corners Lucas Family
Hello - I noticed that you are managing the Lucas gravesites from Barnes Corners, NY. Just wondering if you would like the Lucas graves I added - Charles DeWitt Lucas and his wife Louise? I was looking for my relative Ella Turner Richards (Louise's sister) when I came across these graves and added them. Would be happy to transfer these two.

I was doing some research and ran across your info. I see you are related to George's of Tyler County. I am a grand daughter of Grover Cleveland George. Are we related? And do you have any ancestry info that you can share?

Stoddard family

I was researching my family tree and adding information for my cousin and her family.

Her father was Dewitt Waite ( my uncle ) and in researching the Waites I came across the name Stoddard. Fred married Adele Hamblin who had a sister Stella. Stella married Pearyl Waite, the grandfather of my cousin.

Wondered if you might have any additional information, especially on the Waites that I could share with her?

Thanks so much.
