I strive for Quality, not Quantity|
Historian and genealogist. I have been doing genealogy on both sides of the Atlantic for over 27 years. My work on Find A Grave is NOT a hobby, but a service to others.
I majored in history at Duke Univ., did graduate work in history at the Univ. of South Carolina, graduated from the Univ. of Florida Law School and practiced law for 30 years, much of it in the land title industry. I have an EFM certificate from the School of Theology, University of the South.
Through my mother, I am a ninth generation member of the Weybright (sometimes spelled Waybright) Family in America, a member of the First Families of Ohio and a direct descendant of Capt. Martin Weybright III, of the Lancaster County (PA.) Militia. who is on the DAR patriots list and paradoxically was a member of the pacifist German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren). His father, Martin II and grandparents, Martin I and Margaretha, had arrived in Philadelphia in 1730 from Germany aboard the ship Loyal Judith and settled in Lancaster.
My grandfather, W E Durr, M.D. practiced in Glencoe, Ohio, from after World War I until his death in 1947. In the course of his practice, he delivered many babies, including my mother and one of my brothers. I have over 1,300 of his Physician's Birth Records, but there are probably many more records that I do not have. I put these birth records into 4 spiral bound books and gave the original books to the Ohio Genealogical Society's Library in Mansfield, Ohio, gave one copy to the Genealogical Section of the Hutton Library in Barnesville, Ohio, and kept one copy for myself.
Through my great grandfather, Cornelius "Neal" Rice (1844-1933), I am a member of Civil War Families of Ohio. During Sherman's March to the Sea, he was captured at Irwin's Crossroads, Georgia, taken to the county courthouse/jail in Sandersville and then to the county jail in Milledgeville, then the state capital of Georgia. He escaped from the jail and walked home to Greenville, Ohio.
Through my father, I am a first generation American and a dual citizen of the USA and the Republic of Ireland.

|Nancy Coogan||RE: Leavitt|
Thank you. It is important that we get her right because she is famous. She was a stage performer in the 1920's. Her children and grandchildren still perform in theatre.
Ruth Lockwood was born on October 22, 1890 in the USA. She was an actress, known for Oh, Say Can You Hear? (1937), Cupid Takes a Holiday (1938) and Sing for Sweetie (1938).
She died on April 26, 1984 in Florida, USA.
Born: October 22, 1890 in USA
Died: April 26, 1984 (age 93) in Florida, USA
She shares a grave with her granddaughter Virginia Leavitt, who was murdered and is still the subject of an open cold case.

My pleasure. Doing a lot of work in Woodlawn. If Roebuck is a family name you're interested in you'll probably see more in the coming weeks.
|frances perticone ||perticones|
Hello there! I noticed that you have left flowers on a couple of Graves of the Perticones. I am an estranged Perticone on the west coast and was wondering if you know any information about any other perticones? I want to know more about my family history. I know that I am related to many perticones in New York, Florida, and New Jersey. Thank you for your time, take care!
|Gone Gravin ★||Obits|
Thank you for the updated information you supplied on FIND A GRAVE.
I am not related to any person whose memorial Iíve posted and have no problem transferring any over to a relative or friend.
Keep up your great work.

|Karen W Lesueur||Aman/Walsh|
I see you are related to the Aman/Amann family, as am I. Do you have more information about the earlier family (George/Genevieve) or the Walsh family (Genevieve's mother)?
