Mary Dabney
Does anyone know what happened to P Fazzini's profile? P Fazzini was the creator of Mary Dabney's profile. Oh well.

Anyways, he has Mary's birthdate wrong. According to "The Register of the Kentucky State Historical Society", she was born in 1680.

Edith died shortly after her last child was born. Her name was Elizabeth, and she was born in 1679, and she died in 1688.

Cockacoeske was born in 1620, not 1634. There is no way that a 9 year old can give birth to a child.

George Dabney's mother was Edith Morrison.

Here is the correct list of Cornelius's children with Susannah.

Mary Dabney (1679-March 6, 1760); m. Isaac Winston (1681-1760). 3 children: Lucy Dabney Winston Coles (1703 - 1791); Sarah Winston Henry (1710 - 1784); Mary Ann Winston Coles (1721 - 1758). Mary & Isaac were the grand-parents of both Patrick Henry and First-Lady "Dolly" Madison (who were 1st cousins).

John Dabney II (b. June 5, 1680 - April 7, 1688); died as a child.

Dorothy Dabney (1682 - 1632). She m. William Anderson (b. 1680), ca. 1699 to his death in June 1718; 2 sons: William (1699-ca. 1625, unm.) & Dabney (1701 - d. 1735); & six daughters: Elizabeth, Susannah, Sarah, Mary, Judith, Ann. 2nd she m. James Trice III (1677-after 1750) in 1718. Dorothy & James Trice had 2 sons: John (1725-1745) & William (1730-1775) & a daughter, Martha(?)

Cornelius II (b. April 7, 1683, Gloucester Co., Virginia d. Feb. 17, 1765).[13] He m. Sarah Ann Jennings (b. 1688 in Birmingham, England and d. 1748 in KY; (daughter of Charles Jennings & Mary Cary) on Apr. 17, 1721; children: Susannah (1736-?), William (1722-1767), Mary-Elizabeth (1726-1794), Brig. Gen John (1723-1771), Cornelius (1724 - d. bef. 1764), Anna (1735-1825), Sarah-Elizabeth (1722-1794).

Mary Dabney (Jan. 22, 1688 - Sep. 7, 1748) She m. Major Thomas Carr, Esq. in 1704; 4 children: Thomas Jr. (1705-1743); John (1706-1778); Agnes (1712-1777); and Sarah (1714-1772).

Susannah Dabney (b. 1692 - Sep. 9, 1769). She m. Francis Thornton Strother (b. 1699 - Apr. 17, 1752) in 1721. Children: John (b. Dec. 31, 1721-?); William (b. April 30, 1726-?); Susannah (b. 1732); Elizabeth (b. April 22, 1738).

George Dabney
George Dabney was not the son of Susanna, but the son of Cornelius Dabney & his 1st wife Edith.

RE: Lima Cemetery
Wow, we need to have more respect for the people who have died and are buried. Tennessee passed a law that protects all cemeteries and Texas puts a fence around and a sign with the cemetery name above all of the smaller type of cemeteries. R.J.

Cornelius Dabney's Will
The original copy of Cornelius Dabney's Will, on page 635 states;
"Item. I lend to my Son in law Christopher Harris one Negro wench Unity and all her increase during his life, and at his decease my desire is that the said Unity and all her increase may be equally divided among all the children the said Christopher Harris had by my daughter Mary as they Come to lawful age or mary [marry] & my desire is that those part or parts be equally divided among all the Surviving Brothers and Sisters to them and their heirs forever.

Children of Harriet and William Andrus
Another child of Harriet Stites and William Andrus is Buffington Garner Andrus, married to Lillia Bud Jennett. I believe the tombstones in the photo are of Lillia and her son, Floyd Andrus. Buffington is buried in Livonia. They were divorced.

Stites/Scotch Plains
Thanks for the note regarding Benjamin Stites at Scotch Plains Baptist Church Cemetery.I was able to confirm and add that info to his memorial.
As per my profile,I am considering memorial transfers consistent with Find A Grave transfer policies/guidelines.
If you have any corrections or additional info please send it via a SAC and I will be happy to review it.

RE: Stites family
I believe we are in complete agreement on the Stites family lineage and I'd like to be sure of that before I proceed any further. Would you so kind as to validate what I have, just to ensure I have my Benjamins straightened out? (Here's what I have, using Roman numerals instead of seniors and juniors):

BENJAMIN STITES I, born 1725, died 1805, Scotch Plains, NJ and Elizabeth "Betsey" Wilcocks (also have seen Willcox)
1. Henry, who died at Redstone, on his way to Columbia/Cincinnati
2. Benjamin, II. married, and went to Cincinnati
3. Elijah, went to Cincinnati
4. Hezekiah, went also to Cincinnati
5. Isaiah, married Mary Foster, daughter of Jacob Foster

BENJAMIN STITES II, born 1748, Scotch Plains, NJ; died Columbia, Hamilton, Ohio, 30 Aug 1804
Married Rachel Waldon
Children (with Rachel Waldon)
1. John Stites, born 1770 on Tenmile Creek, died in Ohio in 1794
2. Benjamin Stites, III., born February 1772
3. Phoebe Stites, born 1774
4. Richard Stites, born 1776
5. Rachel Stites, born 1783

I don't feel like I have good dates on Mary Mills or Hannah Waring, nor am I sure of
the issue of those marriages. Any help there would be appreciated.

Many of the Find A Grave memorials for Columbia Baptist Cemetery, including the one for Benjamin Stites, are incorrect and/or lacking. I am a direct descendent of Captain Aaron Mercer and Thomas Brown as well as Joseph Ferris. So, while I am not a Stites, they intermarried with my family as well as being close contemporaries with my ancestors on the frontier. Like you, I want very much to see the records correct.

Thank you very much for your help and time.

You are most welcome! Glad I could help. I did put Mary's picture with her memorial. You may have the pictures to do with whatever you'd like.

John Voorheis
I believe I have found the right John E Voorheis.
I remembered the Voorheis name and knew I had gotten some of the headstones before so I took this picture. Hopefully its the right one. Just a note on the top of the headstone I took that picture also, which reads, "Mother 1843-1919". If you would like that picture just let me know.

Your Aunt Martha
Hi Jeff,
I was just contacted by your cousin Jim Schlosser. He had just found the Findagrave memorials for your family. He told me that his mother, Martha, was buried in Bay City, so I added a memorial for her and linked her to the rest of the family...

RE: Forney, Lucille -photo request
Hi Jeffrey, At this time Lucille's grave site is unmarked, although, I added a "landscape" shot for you so one might get a feel of her location. Also, added extra information "as captions" (plot etc) for your memorial page, which you can view when you click the image. It has been my pleasure.
Sincerely, Fern

Hi jeffery, Yes, I have more info- Ira's brother William Hamilton Andrus 1880-1918 was Clayton Andrus's father,his mother was Maude (Anderson) Andrus, she later married Glenn Bartlett after William died from head injuries from an auto accident. Clayton first married in 1925 Mary McKay, then he was common law partner with Marjorie Scott in Van Wert, Ohio-they had 9 children, then Clayton was common law partner with Iva Fern-(My mother) who he is buried next to in Rose Cem in Bath, Mi. I have them on my Find A Grave. Iva & Clayton had 5 children Gerald, Ruth, Sherman, David & Sheila. All still living, & I was born last to Iva & Richard Leonard in 1957. There are 15 of us in all with 2 gone, Mildred Andrus Hyatt died in 2010 & Bonnie Rose Andrus Flrtcher died Dec 2011. Both on my Find A Grave. Nice finding new family, have a good night, email me with an questions at Joann Pat Leonard Webb

P.S. could you attach Wm Hamilton to his folks Harriet & Wm Henry? his # is listed as Clayton's father on my page.

Tulls @ McPherson

I've transferred the Tulls to you. I love finding family burials and have been lucky to have many of my family transferred to me. I hope you enjoy working with them. I was at work when I transferred sorry I wasn't able to do the updates. Good Luck!

you live right.
Mine is ; Henry B.Leonard#22421834 wife is
Mary Ann (Voorhees-Voorheis) #30962218
I was truly trying to dig up Henry's brother grave Chauncy Leonard #53377147 in Saginaw.
That is when I noticed the bigger than usual tomstones for Voorheis/Voorhees. This cemetary has survived numerous fires 1895-1899..and I think 1902.It is very old and has dirt roads.
I found Chauncey Leonard on;
It is free,no log in and as soon as you find a name it will take you to that cemetary,and the map of the tombstone.
I checked and there are over 37 Voorheis's there are 5 Voorhees, and on Hilton there are around 6.
You may also want to specificly look at;

SUSANA VOORHEIS # 43925417 that memorial is telling the story of a possible link to Pontiac.
I have always wondered why many went to Saginaw ,it could have been the railroad, and the lumber industry.
