Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an Army brat, retired, mother of 2 and grandmother of 1 currently residing in Oregon. I spend most of my time working on DNA and genealogy projects.

Cemeteries have always intrigued me since I was a little girl in Tacoma WA. My uncle was the caretaker of Calvary Cemetery in the 40s and the French Catholic side of my family would pack up a lunch every Sunday and join our ancestors for the day :-)

All my memorials are family members.

RE: George Washington Strawn, nephew of William H. Strawn, and grandson of patriot Richard Strawn
Since you and Margaret are cousins, I'll ask her to send you her number after her application is approved. She hasn't turned it in yet; after national genealogist receives the application may be end of year before Margaret receives her approved papers. Nice that DAR members can look up ancestors. However, we have to order the documentation and it's not cheap.
Do you connect to George Strawn?

Hi Sharon,
Just thought I'd let you know that Margaret Morring, your 5th or so cousin, finally found the info she needed to connect her George Strawn to his father Stephen so she can apply to DAR for membership on her patriot Richard.
Happy Researching!
Linda in Huntsville, AL
p.s. Someone in DAR chapter that she wants to join, was able to pull up the DAR application on George's brother William and there was the proof that William and George were brothers. So it follows that George was also the son of Stephen.
Margaret can also apply for membership in Daughters of 1812 on Stephen. Everything is coming together for her.

Richard Strawn-we are related
Hello and good day Ms. Sharon Hickok - My name is Shoshana Hawkins (maiden name is Coughlin).

I am trying to locate service records for my ancestor and 4th Great-Grandfather (and your 4th Great-Grandfather) who served in the Revolutionary War approx. 1783 - Richard Straughan (Strawn) born: 3/27/1761 in Chatham Co NC- he signed his name both ways on his discharge paperwork. I am having difficulty finding his Revolutionary War service records. His service is documented in the published, Strawn Genealogy compiled by Emmet Dee Strawn and published by J. Frank Strawn in 1965. I located your name by searching on the website for the Ledbetter Cemetery records, where he is buried.

My 3rd Great-Grandfather is James Strawn (B 1786 or 1788), son of Richard and Lucy Poe (who is also buried in the Ledbetter Cemetery). My 2nd Great-Grandfather is Milton Strawn (son of James Strawn). My Great-Grandfather is James Tilman Strawn (son of Milton Strawn who married Sarah Rebecca Kilpatrick). James and Sarah had a daughter named, Maude Zena Strawn (my Grandmother-B: 1889). Maude Zena Strawn married George Tomas Mock, they had nine children, one of their two daughters was my Mother, Margaret Lorain Mock (married William Patrick Coughlin).

I am starting the process to join the DAR, so I am hopeful you can help me. I have never searched ancestor records before, so if you can point me in the right direction.

Not sure of our exact relationship, a cousin 4 times removed? I look forward to hearing back from you and beginning a friendship, even if by email communication.

I tried your email address, but the email came back undeliverable.
