Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy for most of my life. I happened upon this website recently after returning from Kentucky on a genealogy "hunt." What a great resource!!! Surnames in my family:
Bourne, Wion, Gephart, Trissel, Iddings, Woodman, Hellard, Shaw, Sinclair, Shoup to name a few.

I take pleasure when I am able to link families on FAG. The numbers mean nothing to me except perhaps the volunteer photos taken. It's more a matter of making the person in the memorial come "alive" by adding details and connecting family. I feel the same about genealogy - a Family Tree, like FAG, is so much more than a collection of names.

RE: Mary Iddings #10044828 Edit Request
Good Morning Linda,

I am so happy to hear from you. My name is David Darst and my 2G Grandmother was Sarah Eva Davidson Find A Grave# 40354280, who married my 2G Grandfather Joseph Vinton Darst Find A Grave# 40354174. So I have been researching my Davidson Ancestry line for the past several months.

Based on your information we are related, so it is very nice to meet on the internet. This is what I have found regarding your 2G Grandmother Mary Ann Cuthbert Iddings Find A Grave# 100448228. Her mother was Catherine Davidson.

Catherine Davidson, at the age of 13, along with other family members, including my 3G Grandfather James Davidson, immigrated to the United States from Ireland on May 11th, 1839 on the ship Barque Alicia.

Catherine Davidson married William Cuthbert Find A Grave# 92368373, who was also an Ireland immigrate, on August 10th, 1842 in Shelby County, Ohio. They had 3 known children together, your 2G Grandmother Mary Ann Cuthbert Iddings Find A Grave# 100448228, Sarah Elizabeth Cuthbert Ditmer Find A Grave# 58854418, and Jacob William Cuthbert (still researching Jacob). At the age of 36, William Cuthbert died on September 16th, 1853, in Montgomery County, Ohio, leaving behind his wife and 3 small children.

After the death of Catherine's 1st husband William Cuthbert, she married Henry Rhodehamel on April 6th, 1856 in Montgomery County, Ohio.

Your 2G Grandmother and both of her Cuthbert siblings are listed in the 1860-70 US-Census for Union Township, Miami County, Ohio. They are listed in the Household of Henry Rothhamel and his wife Catherine Rothhamel, along with 5-4 Rothhamel children. Various spellings of Rhodehamel have been found on different documents throughout my research.

For your information, I have requested a Name-Edit for "Cuthper" to "Cuthbert" be made at the memorial for William Cuthper Find A Grave# 92368373. I have also requested an Edit for his Birth information to include, Birth: 1817, Birthplace Ireland and that he died in Montgomery County, Ohio. This was a recent Edit Request and to date no edits have been made.

I have requested a Name-Edit to include "Davidson" as her maiden name to the memorial for Catherine Rhodehamel # 96562868. I have also requested an Edit for her Birth information to include, Birthplace as Ireland and that she died on September 1, 1873. Also to Edit the Spouse information, to include her 1st husband William Cuthert at Find A Grave# 92368373. This was also a recent Edit Request and to date no edits have been made.

Linda, I hope what I have written will makes sense to you. If you think I am mistaken in the information I have provided to you, please let me know. All my research is based on documents found on the internet. (US-Census, Ohio-Census, Birth & Death Certificates, Ohio Marriage Licenses, Immigration Passenger Lists, etc.)

If you should have any information on Catherine Davidson (1827-1873), I would appreciate very much if you would share it with me. Thanks again for taking the time to contact me and for reviewing my edit requests.

Hi Linda,

You are welcome.

RE: Samuel Woodman, # 108325720

I will transfer Samuel to you, I have only a few Woodman descendants and they are not related to Samuel or Jane. Keep the memorial if you would like.

RE: Jane Woodman

You may keep the memorial. I do appreciate you checking though. I am glad that you are able to add to the memorial in hopes that it will help some one who is researching the Woodman name.

RE: Rilla Mae Fissel
I just got my great grandmother's death record. Her maiden name was Fissel not Fissell as I first thought. Her father was John Fissel mother Emma Jane Bowan Fissel. John's parents are John Fissel and Rebecca Fissel that you have graves for.I wanted to see if this friend of your mother or the friends family is still around that you can have them contact me please.

RE: Clara Elizabeth Shank Leis/Monroe J. Leis
Hi Linda,

It is always a pleasure to hear from you. I added the photo you needed to Monroe's memorial. Those things happen at times. I checked to see if I had an obituary for him or Clara, but I don't at this time. If I find one for them, I will send it your way.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Take care,
