Lanter Family Cemetery
Hello. I see you have created a memorial for my ancestor, Jacob Lanter. He is buried in the Lanter Family Cemetery in Campbell County Kentucky. I was wondering if you could give me directions to this cemetery. I would like to pay a visit there this summer. Also, would you consider transferring his memorial to me? My contributor number is 47827945 and the memorial number is 27541641.

Thank you,
Teri Showalter

Miller Harding
Hi Penny,
I am very interested in knowing more about Miller Harding, b. 1789. I believe this is the same man found in the 1810 census of Locke, Cayuga Co., NY, and in 1820 in Perrysburg, Cattaraugus Co., NY - and then to Indiana where he apparently died, and is buried in Elliott Cemetery. Would you be able to contact me at to discuss further? Thanks in advance.

William Warren Webb
In honor of William Webb and his family. His parents are not proven. He was not the son of William Webb and Mary Taberer, Its imposible because Mary's father Thomas Taberer will dated Jan 14, 1692, named his grandson Thomas Webb. Our William Webb was not born until at least 1699-1700 and we have no Source of his birthplace and it was not in the Isle of Wright Virginia. Our William Webb died in Orange Co Virginia and was not buried in this Cemetery. He must be buried in Orange Co Va in unmarked grave.

Elijah Fields
Elijah's 2nd wife Sarah Elizabeth Waggoner was the daughter of Robert Waggoner who came up from Russell County, VA. See page 77 in your Fields book for mention of Sarah Waggoner. Linda Sharp, a descendent of Robert Waggoner who settled in upper Martin county. Robert was a brother of my direct line from his brother Michael Waggoner 1818-1885 who is buried at Silverville in the Wagoner Cemetery, Lawrence County.
"Dorn" doesn't sound familiar as one of their children but I don't my tree turned on. Linda Sharp a Waggoner/Wagoner descendent from the son of Henry I Waggoner by name of John who remained in Russell county, VA. Too many Sarah's to keep straight! Do you have a picture of Elijah? I would love to see it on Facebook or email to lindasharp123@att(dot)net.

RE: Baby Roger Moore
Yes Roger was healthy he was just early. It took the Dr's too long to get to the hospital and the nurses wouldn't check my mom. By the time the Dr. got there she had already started closing and strangled him before they got him out. They really didn't know too much about C-sections back them. Mom divorced his dad and remarried my dad and had 3 boys and me. They divorced and she remarried again and had 4 more daughters. We all survived and are still alive.

I'm sorry, but I think the cemetery info is wrong. Charlottesville is not in, or even near, Isle of Wight county. The volunteers that were notjfied were asked because they live in Isle of Wight, myself included. Please research the location of the cemetery for more luck.

RE: Catheleen
Hi Penny
My father Aubrey Dean Hoggattt (youngest of 9) had two sisters who died young. The first was Esther Beulah Hoggatt, born 05 Dec 1909 and died Oct 1910 (before their second child Charles was born).

The second sister to die young was Catheleen Ruth Hoggatt, born October 2, 1920 and died Sep 30, 1929. As my father was born August 1926, he had no memory of Catheleen. But Jeri and Judy remembered her.

Thank you for contacting me!

RE: Baby Roger
My mother divorced Roger's father and she remarried my dad and had 3 sons and me! They were divorced and she remarried again and had 4 more daughters. She never forgot Roger and made sure we all knew about him and what happened to him espicially us girls in case it happened to us. Totally we gave her 26 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren by the time she passed away at age 78.

RE: Baby Roger Moore
Thank you! My grndmother took that photo of Roger in his casket as my mother was still in the hospital at the time the funeral took place and so she would have a photo of her son. Mom was actually 8 months pregnant with him when she went into labor. She told them at the hospital that a foot was hanging out but the nurses wouldn't check (thinking it was her first and she didn't know what she was talking about) her. When the Dr. got there 2 hours later and found out what was going on he took a look and said "lets get this baby out!" But by the time they got his other foot down and just before the head came she closed on his throat. He lived only long enough to get a name. She never forgave the nurses. I don't think I would have either.

RE: Theodocia Edington Corbin
Hi Penny,
You did send me a message some time back. I must apologize - between work, travel and just time limitations I've not responded. With this message I'll change that. I'll warn you right now I can be a bit windy once I'm started; here goes!

My G-Grandmother was Francis M. Edington, daughter of Elijah and Lutitia. One of Francis' daughters, Jennie Decker Stropes was my Grandmother on my Dad's side. I was born in Linton, IN, Greene Co.

As a child I spent most summers with Grandmother Stropes, and my Aunt Myrtle Hardesty Decker Hayes (another of Francis' daughters) who both lived in Linton. Francis (we called her Granny Scott) lived in the area, she would visit often and I remember her well, even though I would have been 9 years old when she died.

So there is the connection.

I do, however have a number of observations and some questions for you. So rather than write a lengthy message in Find A Grave, I think I'll carry on in an e-mail.

I'll continue in a bit. Regards and thanks for your patience. Dan Stropes.

Southern Indiana Roots
Hi Penny. In transfering a memorial for Theodocia Edington Corbin I noted you posted a virtual flower on her memorial. I think we are distant cousins. My GGrandmother, Mary Francis Edington Decker Scott would have been a sister of Theodocia. My southern Indiana roots are from Greene, Martin, Pike, Sullivan & nearby counties. Associated surnames are: Stropes, Decker, Edington, Martin, Hayes, Hardesty, Corbin, Dean & many others. I also had an Aunt Docia; my observation is that when names repeat that is no coincidence.

Any names sound familiar to you? You said you had a number of old photos. I have a few & would love getting copies made of those you may have who are in my lineage. Please let me know. Regards, Dan Stropes

Ferguson cemetery
I was going to this cemetery and wondered if it is easy to find. Is it on the main road or off the road? I know where the area is, but don't remember a cemetery.

James Iredell Fields
Penny, please add that to James Irdell Fields that his granddaughter Mary Belle married James Marshall Waggoner, son of Robert and Sarah Waggoner whose land adjoined Iredell's. (my reason is that Robert Waggoner is my 3rd great uncle and the Waggoners and the Fields knew each other as relatives, friends and neighbors in the Silverville, Baker Township areas. Thank you. Linda sharp a descendant of Robert Waggoner.

Your right, either way. But also there was a bunch of kids that vandalized the cemetery at one time and could have destroyed it then too. Any way, it's a shame.
