Bio and Links
I joined Find A Grave because I wanted to find where my ancestors were buried. Then I learned that I could link them for not only me, but for anyone else interested in the same line. I now really enjoy creating non family member memorials and linking their family members.

My maternal 3rd great-grandparents were William and Elizabeth Short Dodson.

My maternal 2nd great-grandparents were Andrew Jackson Rebecca Williams Dodson Sr.

My maternal great-grandparents were William and Ida Flack Dodson.

My maternal grandparents were James (Jessie) Joseph and Helen Elizabeth Demuling Dodson.

I'm descended from the Laughlin, Murphy, and McGinnis lines from Onoville, N.Y and the Demuling and Dodson lines in Pennsylvania.

My wife is descended from Isaac and Lucinda Hill Brock from Texas and the William T. and Sarah Sallie Johnson Gaston line from North Carolina.

I've no problem with the use of my photographs for your own purpose's but please be kind and ask first, and if used, please give credit.

RE: Mary Ann Carn #132364983
Dave
After I sent that message, I found out what happened. I follow the Dodson line as my great great grandfather James Pressel was married to Rachael Dodson, so I look at the Dodson line to see who are distant relatives of mine.

If you want information on Laura, Melvin and Mary, I have found some, be glad to share.

Thanks

David

Mary Ann Carn #132364983
David,

When looking at her information, all the children are listed as Dodson, is there a reason for this, as some records show that Andrew Carn is the father of a couple of the kids?

Hello David,

Sorry for the delay, I was checking my old photo's and didn't come across the Gribben sisters. I can check with the cemetery and see if I can find them.

You're quite welcome. And it looks like "Kat" already accepted the edit suggestions.

RE: MATILDA M. TOPPER BYRNE
Well, you were in luck. I looked out the window to the west around 2 pm and saw an almost unending roof of chunky clouds as far as the eye could see - BUT - with these tiny peep holes for the sun every once in a great while. So I headed down to Altoona, 15 miles away, found the tombstone, wiped off the lichen as best I could and waited ... After about 25 minutes, a peep hole materialized for no more than three minutes. But that was enough.

I posted new photos for Matilda and Michael, asked "Kat" to recognize the birth date for Matilda, and asked her also to link the two as spouses. If she checks her edit suggestions with any frequency, all should be set in a few days.
