Bio and Links
I'm a retired retail manager and Rep. for a major Company.
I have been involved in Genealogy research for well over 20 years and I have found this site to be one of the best genealogy tools out there. It is an outstanding site and when done correctly, it gives a wealth of information for researchers. I urge ALL to use the Links tools available on this great site and to add as much information as you can.
If I have a Grave that you would like to have ownership of, PLEASE do contact me and I will gladly transfer it to you.
I'm not perfect so, feel free to tell me of any proven errors and I will correct them.

Anna Gossom Smith
I changed the birthdate to Sep 22 but left the year 1888 because that is on her gravestone. Thoughts? Also, added month and date of death. Made a note that Walter Smith was her husband and Amanda her mother. Changed death location to Simpson Co, KY. I removed Alice as being her mother. Anything else?

Don, I was never able to make a link from J.W. to any family tree. Every where I went was a dead end. Sorry to hear about Lloyd,,, he looked pretty bad the last time I saw him .... I think somewhere around 5 years ago.

I even hired a geneologist in Virginia; they never found anything either.

Don, it didn't come from me. Can you ask Lloyd if it came from him.... if so, he should know. If not, there's a lot of folks along the way that have tried to link "our" J. Wilson to other family trees that have not stood up... thanks

Aquilla Floyd
Mr. Burris:

I'm trying to ascertain if Aquilla Floyd (d: Nov 1879 Edmonson County KY)is buried with members of his family at Sand Hill. He is Enoch Floyd's
brother (b: 1790). Aquilla was a War of 1812 and Blackhawk War veteran. There is a monument at a Blackhawk War battlefield (Kellogg's Grove) in
Northern IL, and there are headstones for those killed in the area in that or other battles/skirmishes. Aquilla has one there. It should not be there. Someone erroneously ordered him the headstone to be placed at the monument in 1938. He didn't die in the war. He went back to Kentucky and died of old age. I want to get that headstone removed and hopefully placed at Sand Hill with his family since he didn't die during the Blackhawk War, and isn't buried there.

Are there any cemetery records that show him buried there? I doubt that he has a headstone, or his headstone has been lost, because the only records I can find are for headstones that can be read. I could also use help in getting the headstone moved there, and perhaps you are the person to help?

RE: Daisey Duncan
Hi Don - Thank you for the information on Daisey Scobee Duncan. I do not think we are related but there could be that possibility. Daisey is listed in the 1900 and 1910 census as black race and her parents are listed as Sherman and Beulah "Scoby" - I do not have any of those names in my genealogy program. I try to request grave markers for all Scobee names I come across in Findagrave and you wonderful volunteers have been so helpful both with photos and extra time you spend getting additional information. Just want you to know how you are appreciated and because of what you do this has become a wonderful site for researchers and preserving our history.

Hi Don! I came across cemetery records so I uploaded them for other researchers. I hope you are having a fabulous day! :)
