Herman P Eason lineage
Hello think we may be distantly related.
My dads (Ervin Dade Eason) father was Herman P Eason, I stumbled upon his brothers grave info today. See I have distant relations.

I am trying to go up the tree (Eason side) maybe you are from the other side actually... I am new to this! You can email me if you have any further info up the tree?

I also related to the Coorpenders through the Fenners. Lewis Coorpender married my great-great grandmother's sister, Martha Matilda Fenner. My gg grandmother was Eliza Geddy Fenner, wife of James Vaulx.

It sounds like you and I are probably related.

Looks like you have her husband attached two (2) shows twice looking at her memorial.

Just an FYI...

Arthur Joseph Hutchinson Barbour
Hi Andy,
Sorry to bother you again! I thought however, you may be interested in a further piece of information in addition to my first message. I have located Arthur and his wife on the 1900 Census. They are living in Myrtle Avenue, Hamilton County, Cincinatti. Again, unless it's the Census Enumerator who has been rather lax, Arthur plays somewhat fast and loose with the facts. He claims to have been born in France,[he makes a similar claim for his mother, father born in England]He says he and his wife, who is recorded as having been born in Illinois in about 1869, have been married 5 years. His occupation is given as a musician, and his year of immigration as 1881[as you can see from my previous message I believe it was somewhat earlier]. He also claims to be a Naturalised Citizen. I'm spending far too much time on Arthur and his family who are really just bit-players in my family history, but I'm intrigued as to why he, and his brother, left an apparently comfortable life in England and then proceeded to create semi- false identities for themselves. I can find no evidence of any scandal/wrong doing from the British Papers.
Best Wishes,
Ian Methven.

Hi Andy, It seems that Arthur was something of a'dissembler' all of his life, why? I don't know.I am related to the Borrey family of Derby. England and am currently in the process of writing my family history. Arthur's Grandmother was Catherine Borrey, born in Derby in 1798. In 1832 she married Joseph Hutchinson Barber, a Schoolmaster, [note the different spelling of the surname].Their only son was born in 1834 and named after his father. Joseph junior became a schoolmaster in London and later took Holy Orders, becoming the curate of St Olaves in the City of London and later at a church in Clapham. In 1860 Joseph junior married Jane Trail in Westminster.They had 5 children who survived into adulthood, 4 boys and a girl. Arthur, the eldest, was born in London[not Liverpool] on the 13th of April 1861. His maternal Grandfather was a Piano Maker and his sister, Margaret Olivia, 1874-1906 was listed on the 1901 Census as a Professor of Music, so it was definitely in their blood. Arthur appears on the 1871 Census with his family, but after that the only British record I can find for him is that he attended Southwark Grammar School. On American records, however I've found the following:
In March 1880 Arthur Barber[sic] of McKassell? Texas enlists in the 22nd Infantry of the U.S.Army. He is 21 yrs old [according to him], a Schoolteacher born in London. He is discharged on 22 4 1882 due to disability.
In January 1883, as you know, he marries Sarah [Sadie] Chew.
The next record is somewhat bizarre. On the 7th of August 1884 he is baptized in San Antonio, as Arthur Barbour. He had already been baptized in St John's Westminster in May 1861. He gives his date of birth as 13.4.1861 and his parents as Josephi Barber and Elisabeth Traill[sic], according to the transcription.
The final record I have for him at present is his marriage to Anna Elizabeth Kassal in 1898.
Quite a man of mystery, as was his brother, Austin Grey Barber who appears to have followed him out to Texas, and was equally economical with the truth. But his is another story, if you can face it! If you feel there is anything I can help you with, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Best Wishes,
Ian Methven.

RE: Isham Sills
I think that is all you can do at this point. That particular cemetery was not established until the 1850s, so any earlier graves would have been moved in, and there would be a record of it. Thanks very much!

Isham Sills
Thank you for all the work you have done. Just wanted to let you know that we do not know where Isham Sills was buried, and he most likely does not have a stone. The stone you have pictured with his name on FindaGrave is that of Andrew J. Sills, his great-grandson. As you can tell, the stone is in terrible condition and is very worn and hard to read.

Thank you!

Pvt Thomas Wesley Dodd
Hi Andy,

I received an email from a Find A Grave contributor stating that you and I have a duplicate for Thomas Wesley Dodd in different cemeteries. Yours being in Adkins Family Cemetery at Worlds (Find A Grave Memorial# 107678642) and mine being in Dodd Family Cemetery near Rondo (Find A Grave Memorial# 161353011), both being in Pittsylvania County VA.

I have researched on Thomas Wesley Dodd and made photos, etc. of the Dodd Family Cemetery. I am wondering where you got your information and why the Adkins Family Cemetery was selected as the home for Mr. Dodd. One of these memorials should be deleted since it is causing some confusion.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I hope to hear from you.

RE: Elaine Rankin photo request problem?
Noted. But isn't this about finding your loved one expeditiously? It's not about me or you.

RE: Elaine Rankin photo request problem?
Hello. On Nov 22nd I asked you to call the cemetery and get the section, plot, grave number and I would gladly find her and take some nice photos. The offer still stands but you need to make the call.

The cemetery has now been added to Find a Grave. Just look for Merksem Van Heybeeckstraat.

RE: death certificate
unfortunately NOT.... I was just wondering if you have access to and can, do you post the death certificate or birth certificate to the find a graves that you manage?

I was just wondering... oftentime, I will have access to bio info to a findagrave and when I offer these findings, many times they don't get put in comments....

Hello Andy Baker,
Are you a Mills researcher? Wondering if any Dna testing has been done for this Mills line? Absalom Mills 1774 line has Dna study and could they match?

William M Dorsett
Hello Andy, I am working to document the old city cemetery.
I am presently working on the vets.
I found you have William M Dorsett. He is a ww ii vet.
I see there is a family vault at Blk 33, with several individual graves around it.
Do you know where in the cemetery he was buried?
Would he be in the family vault?
Any help is appreciated.
