William Kirk headstone
Hi, Penny -

I don't think I've contacted you before... I'm writing a book about the Kirk family and would like to include your photo of William Kirk's headstone at the Hopewell U.M Church cemetery in Cecil Co., MD. Please let me know if it's OK; I will be sure credit you with the image.

RE: Jane Kimble
Hi Penny,

I found the maiden name on the death certificate for son Joseph. It is attached to his entry in Kemblesville cemetery.

Charles Louis Barrett

I noted that you had added the photo of Charles Louis Barrett's tombstone on Find A Grave. Are you a descendant or relative of his, or were you just doing a good deed as a Find A Grave photo volunteer? If you are a relative, I would be glad to connect with you via e-mail to share genealogical information. Charles was a younger brother of my great-great grandfather.

RE: Bealor
Glad I could help!

His sister Mary Elizabeth Farmer is in the lot right next to his lot. The stone drew my attention because it was so similar to the stone for the photo you requested. I sent edits to the owner to link her to the family.

I also made memorials today for Samuel's brother, Issac # 153040955 and his wife, Annie Marie # 153042899.

Would you like me to transfer them to you?

Harry Talley
Fletcher Lenwood Everett
Penny I have tried everything to further verify Uncle Fletchers middle name spelling. On his draft information his signature most clearly has Lenwood and would have that as a good official record for his middle name. I cannot believe that he would not give his son Ross his middle name without the spelling to be Lenwood. I am therefore using Lenwood for Ross's middle name for my family records. Harry

Hi Penny,

Does your husband have any pictures of Aunt Dot and Uncle Fletcher Everett. I would love to have one for my genealogy book of my Great Grandmother Lydia Ann Jones Andrew family.

Look forward to hearing from you. Harry Talley

Everett Kane Anderson
His parents, James L. Anderson and Emaline J. Preston were married in St. George's Church Philly

His uncle Robert Goforth Anderson and aunt were married 19 OCT 1850 in Philadelphia, PA R.N. Thomas, Pastor I'm planning on going in to St. George's sometime soon (July 2015) to find out what I can.

RE: Everett Kane Anderson

Did I ever get back to you on this? Everything on F.A.G is what I have on the Prestons and the Andersons. I descend from James L. Anderson's brother Robert Goforth.


RE: Everett Kane Anderson
I'm investigating the Anderson link for a cousin and the Preston link for myself. Do you have anything to add to either.

Bristow ancestors
Hi Penny,

I am also descended through John W. BRISTOW and Susannah HUKILL -- through their youngest daughter Christianna BRISTOW and her husband Alexander KIRK.

Most of my family lived in Chesapeake City. Eventually many family members settled in Philadelphia.

Please contact me directly at



Added by Jean on Jun 22, 2015 5:31 PM

My BRISTOW ancestors were in Cecil County. Have you done research of the early BRISTOW line in Cecil, Maryland, and Delaware?

RE: Caroline Clouser
Death certificates of her children, Jacob Clouser and Elizabeth Clouser Searl, list her maiden name as Caroline Louisa Frymoyer.

Elizabeth Frymoyer is buried in Friedens' Cemetery, which at the time of burial, was known as Clouser's Cemetery.

In the 1850 Census, Caroline is living with her parents, Daniel and Elizabeth (Werner) Frymoyer in Bern Twp, Berks County. The family then moved into Schuylkill County, where Elizabeth Werner Frymoyer is buried.

The death certificates of Caroline's siblings, Ellen and Levi, confirm the names of their parents as Daniel Frymoyer and Elizabeth Werner.

Sorry for the delay on your correction. I have linked to father, but don't have info on mother. You said mother was Emily Wolf, I had her name as Emily White, but I can't verify now were I came up with White. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Penny, for linking Catharine to her parents. Her father died before she was born, makes it look suspect, but it is correct..:) Thanks for all the contributions you make!

middle initials
Penny, I'm still a Find a Grave novice, so I wanted to ask you why you leave out middle initials (maybe not always?). When I'm checking to see if a picture that I've taken already has a memorial, I can't find the person unless I leave out the initial that is definitely on the tombstone (example Mary R, Marston, section JNRV Silverbrook Cemetery). I am asking just to learn - thanks so much.

Hi Penny, This headstone is for cousins of mine. I was wondering if I could download it to use on my blog. I'd really appreciate it if it's okay with you.

Sarah McBride Bowman
Hello Penny,
Do you have any information on Thomas and Sarah (McBride) Bowman. Sarah McBride Bowman was my great-grandmother's sister who I thought stayed in Ireland. Her parents and siblings who immigrated to Wilmington, Delaware are buried in Wilmington, mostly in Mt Salem.
Thank You,
Jim McMillan

RE: Stephen Cole
Hi Penny,

Yes, Martha Hunter was the wife of Stephen Cole, but I see the memorial is gone now. I'm guessing merged with another that existed.

Thank you again for your work and help,

RE: Stephen Cole
Dear Penny,

Thank you for taking the time to answer. I'm assuming you saw my later message that I figured that out. I'm new on Find A Grave and learning my way. I have sent the mgr of James' memorial a note explaining that Stephen is the brother and then submitted your memorial as the father.

This family has gotten tangled on Find A Grave. It's important to me because it is my direct line.

Thanks, Christie
