Bio and Links
I live in Whatcom Co, Washington, and have been actively doing genealogy since 1978. I became a FAG member shortly finding my 5th great-grandfather's gravestone photo and knew I had to create memorial pages and post the numerous photos and records that I had collected. Surnames of interest include Gilbert, Glover, Gowdy, Brown, Packard, Wakely and Jennings.

Additions and corrections to FAG Memorials: Please use the appropriate "edit" tab that can be accessed from each memorial page. If unsure, use the "Suggest any other correction or addition" tab.

Transfer requests: Using the "Suggest any other correction or addition" tab, please request a transfer of a Memorial according to the guidelines of FAG. I will not transfer Memorials for those I am directly related to. And DO NOT FORGET TO INCLUDE YOUR MEMBER #.

Obituaries: I will add obituaries to memorials only if you include a proper citation -- both the date and the name of the newspaper.

Photos: You have my permission to use any photo that I have taken and posted to a Memorial. Please remember to give my name and where you found the photo. Also note that I believe it is more important to capture the data on the headstone and provide the best possible photo. Please contact me should you desire a scenic photo of the area where the headstone is located.

RE. Wakley Jennings
Hello Merrily, further to my last note I noticed you refer to John D Wakley as your Grandfather if that is the case we are second cousins, I find it incredible that the Wakleys and the Cornish family lived so close to one another in Cornwall England namely Morwenstow and Kilkhampton, My Great Great grandmothers name was Prudance James she married my Great Great Grandfather Thomas Cornish, in Morwenstow, She died in 1846 and is buried in the Church yard in Morwenstow village of Shop, the Vicor of Morwenstow was Robert Stephen Hawker. Hope you find the info interesting
Take Care Thomas E. Cornish

John Wakley & Grace Jennings
Hello once again Merrily,I noticed your posting of my Great Grand Parents children one of whitch is my Grandmother Jessie Wakley Cornish she and one sister are buried with her mother and father John Wakley and Grace Jennings in Pinegrove Cemetary Prince Albert Port Perry Ontario.One other sister Myrtle who married Arthur Couldthard is buried in Oshawa Union Cametary. Arthur Couldthard was best man at my Grandfathers wedding in 1909, My Grandmother Jessie Wakley died 1912 when my father John Cornish was only six months old. I have a few photos of My Great Grand Parents John Wakley and Grace B Jennings and also photos of My Grandmother Jessie Wakley and two sisters, I would share, It appears I have quite a few third cousins through my Grandmothers brother John D Wakley of Tulsa Oak. If you are interested in the photos let me know, Thomas E. Cornish.

RE: Backstroms
Would you be willing to transfer all of these if I got all the numbers after referring to my tree?
Added by MooreBranchesFamily on Jan 24, 2017 3:46 PM
If these are not your family, this is my uncle's American clan. If they are your family, I love to meet new cousins to compare notes.
