Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello and thanks for clicking on my page, you are probably someone who has helped me!

I'm a married lady, and genealogy is my main hobby. While it's true that this site is not specifically for genealogy, memorials of our loved ones go hand-in-hand with the family tree. After all, who cares more about those being memorialized than their descendants? With the exception of famous people and soldiers, most of them would be ignored.

It's wonderful to be able to leave a token of remembrance for a great grandparent who's buried hundreds of miles away.
But my greatest joy here at FindAGrave is to add a photo or a few biographical tidbits to family memorials that may be here long after I'm gone, so ancestors will be more than just a name and date to future generations.

I am very grateful to all the wonderful volunteers who have loaded information and taken photos for everyone.

If anyone is related to one of my family members and would like to contribute information or photos to the memorial, please send me a message!

I don't like to add maiden names to memorials of those who may have living children, as it's a security issue with banking and identification, so if anyone catches that on a memorial, please contact me and I'll remove it.

Thanks!

Robert Joslin Lacy
I am seeking information regarding Robert Joslin Lacy (1910-1981) son of Mark Leeds Lacy and Asenath Palmer Ackley. Robert served with my father (Arthur Frank La Drew, Sr) in the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1933 with 38 other young men from Atlantic County, NJ. I am writing an article for the Linwood Historical Society about my father's CCC experience and am attempting to locate descendants of the men with whom he served. Are you a direct relation of Robert Lacy and if so, what is your connection? Many thanks in advance for your assistance.

RE: William Lacey
Thank you so much for your help. It is greatly appreciated. I did find a historical page on the hospital earlier today and now wonder which area he was held in and the circumstances surrounding his stay.
His son Israel, if William is his father, came into funding somewhere to start a clay dealing/dredging operation in Burlington county, N.J., and to construct a fleet of boats to haul his cargo to Trenton. One would think better accomadations could be found than what I read. Interesting, no?
My ancestry account was forsaken when I moved recently, but will check further as you've given me much to look for.
Thank you again for your help!!
Have a great day.

William Lacey
Hi!
I was wondering where the info came from concerning William Lacey buried at Woodlands Cemetery in
Philadelphia. I've been searching for him for a very long time as he is the supposed father of my Israel Chapman Lacey, born 1801, Burlington county, N.J.
Not much is known of William other than his parents, birth date, location and that he supposedly moved to Virginia, and then Georgia.
The information I have, which was taken from an old Lacy bible, states he married Elizabeth Chidister/Chidester. Other records I've seen lists different wives names.
The mystery is how his son came to be born in New Jersey, in the same area at his uncle John, of Revolutionary war fame, when William wasn't shown as being in N.J. :)
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

col William Joslin
Hi my name is David L Joslin, William is my 7th great-grandfather. While I was reading about John, I came across a short story stating that William was called CoL because of the Indians he fought.

Duplication
Hello

I have noticed a duplication of Mary Willets 75353432
since there is a preexisting memorial for her under the ID of 55036572

Thank you

Lacey in AC Cemetery
I posted a picture of Ethel Lacey's grave site; Harold, Elizabeth and Anita are also on the stone. I will post their picture on their pages once you change their burial to AC Cemetery. I would post but if I dont post using uploading a picture, it comes out side-ways for some reason.

Mehitable Crosby
Hi, I noticed the very nice photo and profile you posted of Mehitable Crosby Nickerson. We are probably distant cousins since I believe I'm a descendant of her father, and her brother, Enoch E. Crosby. I'd be very interested in comparing notes, especially since it looks like you have access to some interesting info that I wasn't aware of. Please feel free to e-mail me. Greg

John Hagy
I have found your submission for John Hagy and Catherine Mellinger Hagy. I believe I may have discovered his parents in Shoeneck, West Cocalico Twp., Lancaster Co. The Mellinger Cemetery is there and I show a birth record of Oct 18, 1810. Please contact me at "lvrboydes@gmail.com" to discuss further. Thanks, Don Sheaffer

John Lacey/Lacy
I fixed his mother's memorial page. Keep me posted on his date of death...maybe where he is buried.
