Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for over 20 years. I decided to join Daughters of the American Revolution in 2004. DAR is a wonderful organization that has a highly respected genealogy reputation. It was something I could do to use my genealogy information and serve God, Home, and Country. Find A Grave is a wonderful help in my search for ancestors. Thanks to all the great people who have tromped through the graveyards to take pictures for me.

RE: Children of Moses McIlvain, Jr.
So, I am still working through the descendants of Moses, Sr. and working out the conflicts. I enter information with sources into WikiTree and try to get at least two sources for each profile.

I have not found a Find A Grave memorial for either Moses, Sr. or Agnes (Miller) McIlvain, nor any McIlvains in the Octorora Presbyterian Church cemetery, but here is what I have so far for his mother, and his siblings:

Agnes Miller is the daughter of James Miller.

Agnes married Moses McIlvain, son of Robert McIlvain and Isabel (Swann) McIlvain. Their first home was in Chester County, Pennsylvania, Esst Nantmeal Township, called "Manor of Sprinton."

In 1761, the year in which Moses died, he held a warrant from Thomas and Richard Penn for the lands on which they built their home. After his death, Agnes sold the land, so that her sons Moses, Samuel and John could resettle in Calf Pasture Valley, in Augusta County, Virginia, which they did in 1763.

Agnes died in 1764, and is presumably buried in the cemetery at Octorora Presbyterian Church, with her husband and his parents.

Children of Agnes and Moses are:

*Moses McIlvain, Jr. born 1741, married Margaret Hodge

*Robert McIlvain, born 1743

*Isabel McIlvain, born 1745, married James Barclay

*James McIlvain, born 1747

*Jean (Jane?) McIlvain, born 1749, married Paul Trimmer

*Violet McIlvain born 1751, married Samuel Tennis

*Samuel McIlvain, born 1753, married Elizabeth Purdy

*John McIlvain, died 1813, in Kentucky married July 28, 1789, in Augusta County, Virginia to Elizabeth Hodge

RE: James Graham 920
City cemetery listing. Which is probably wrong, large chunks of it are. They have this child and another Graham buried next to each other. One having died in 1990 (this is wrong and is actually 1890 and is one that you manage) and the other in 1920. Both were listed as James and I see that sometime in the past year or two they've changed them both to JAE. They also have both of them listed as being 41 at the time of death. There's nothing to be looked up for the James that died in 1890, if there were newspapers in existence for that time, I'd have all ready pulled an obit. The baby though, should have a death cert at Wyo Archives. Do you want to contact them for it? I'm sure they're getting tired of hearing from just me. There's a form to fill out here:
Be specific and give them as much as you have. I like to give a reason for it as well (conflicting names, looking for maiden, etc.) so that they don't feel that they're looking things up to satisfy idle curiosity. They normally email it back the same day or the next. No charge for it.
