Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I first started looking for family a number of years ago now; I had no idea who my family was or where they came from other then Kentucky. I told people when they asked that were were just American Mutts. What a group of mutts they turned out to be. Most of my ancestors were here well before the American Revolution. While their name's rarely appear in the history books, they were part of the founders that helped shape the USA that we live in today. Or maybe they are in some of the history books, if you know where to look.
Much of my research is from the kindness of others. I try to list my sources and give credit where it is due. If I miss someone, please let me know and I will give you credit.
Many of our ancestors graves have been lost over time and many the old records are now gone. I try and include to the best of my ability where our family is likely to be buried and who they are related to.

Mistakes can and do happen. For that reason, I am always open for helpful corrections, additional information and transfer requests. Please use the "Edit" tab then "Suggest a Correction" tab on the memorial pages or contact me directly.
As for me; I was born in Eastern Washington State, lived in Arizona for a number of years and now reside in Western Montana.
I am a descendant of Peter and Dority Hart (ca 1740) Grayson CO VA/Ashe CO NC, Peter Winne that arrived in Albany NY from Holland about 1650, several Winthrope Fleet members. Last but not least a number of Palintine Germans, English Scots and Irish with far too many names to list here.

I ask a simple request of other members. Please do not use your Bio to post Find A Grave guidelines that are already covered on this site under "Help with Find A Grave" FAQs. Nobody posts rules, regulations and terms of service for a web site on a grave biography. Why do so on your own bio? A bio is supposed to be about a person, not about rules and guidelines.

Thank you to Find A Grave for letting me post family information and all of the hard work posted by it's members. No one person can do all of this by themselves.

RE: Rev Thomas Woolsey
Hi Cousin!

Woolsey's are a challenging line. I've been managing profiles on WikiTree, cleaning the tree one person at a time. Most of my data collection came from Wilford Whitaker's website, but then I collect records to confirm the bio.

I descend from Gilbert William T. Woolsey (1851 - 1918). Greeneville, Greene, Tennessee. Are you on the Zephaniah Woolsey and Sarah Woolsey or
Zephaniah Woolsey (1804 - abt. 1845) and Rachel (Harrison) Woolsey? Or, or ...heehee

What is the birthdate of Rev Thomas that you seek? There's about 10 of them...just kidding.

My email is

I'd love to share notes. Kelly

RE: Charles N. Hart
You're quite welcome. Wish I had time to "fill in the gaps" on all my memorials but I do always try to find what info I can as edits come in. Thanks for your note! Appreciate it.

RE: Minnie Locker Hart
Hi Wes. Yes, Minnie Locker is the daughter of Frank Allison born 1868 and living in Sangamon County, Illinois in 1920. Minnie first married John Clinton Locker, last to Raleigh W Hart.

John Locker and Minnie are my wife's grandparents....But she only knew Raleigh as her grandpa...

I have posted a headstone for James McNeil, Dora B McNeil, Mary Francis Floyd McNeil and John T McNeil. John T McNeil was found in Mackey Cemetery in Flat Creek next to his family. I see you have photo requests for that cemetery. Next time I'm down there I will get those also.
