Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born Annabelle Mary Henderson w/o Jesse Rupert (Columbiana County) and only child born to John Cassell Henderson born Newport, Kentucky and Mary Beaton Jenkins born Glasgow, Scotland. Jesse Rupert is s/o J Vernon Rupert born Columbiana Co, Ohio and Mary Paden.

Only paternal roots in America, I follow a path to Fairfax Co Virginia (grandmother's name Pritchartt).

Some interesting facts discovered about my family:
Henderson, Nevada named after my group.
The Hendersons still operate the oldest family owned Drug Store in America to date called "Henderson's Drug Store" founded 1841 by Osborne Henderson in Glasgow, Howard Co Missouri. The oldest Henderson in my group, lived to be 104, Dr. Joseph Lewis Henderson as did his sister.

I have no biological connection to Ohio and
will transfer any memorial in Columbiana/Mahoning Co Ohio to persons with interest.
I check and work on this daily, update edits and will respond to email/corrections, etc promptly. Please note as I have posted many memorials from the cemetery index volumes, Audrey Allison has brought them to life by walking the cemeteries, photographing and posting headstones to thousands of the memorials. It is a joint effort by many.
Please do not ask for a transfer then "disappear from the face of earth"!

To all who so righteously remind us the primary purpose of Find a Grave is "GRAVE REGISTRATION", and then "boringly" recite in your bio the FAG rules... yes we get it! To the group I work with, (look at my friend's list) it is a mere "starting point" as we all work together, share, and seek to know more about the folks, what they looked like and where they lived as we "register their graves". All of us will go to great lengths to find out more!. .. to sum this up they are "NOT JUST A NAME ON THE A STONE"!

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS 2014 YEAR - Two new stones shine from the "Pritchartt" plot in Bellefontaine Cemetery in St Louis Mo for the first time...

May 20, 2014
Placed a military marker on an unmarked grave... After a long search for military records for a great uncle who was a Conf Soldier, and alas, finally secured them and accepted for a military headstone placed on his grave after 114 years beneath an unmarked grave!! He was Pvt John Norvell Caskie. Thanks to Angela Smythe who had an interest in the Caskie family and provided a copy of military record that made this all possible.

Aug 18, 2014 - Stone placed on great grandmother Maria L Bingham Pritchartt's grave who died in 1859 from anemia. Stone is now set in plot St Louis Mo. She has rested for 155 years in an unmarked grave, but that will be no more. I guess that is why I was chosen to do what I do. Amen

I encourage relatives to post old photos to memorials and I will sponsor ANYONE's memorial just to have additional photos uploaded. (It is well worth the $5.00 Find a Grave charge) Focus as of 11/9/2014 will be to review current memorials created, complete data as to birth, date, place, etc and to link/find parents, siblings or family. Just as in life, every memorial should be linked to family. And "friends" keep those edits coming my way as it helps so much identify all the folks at rest. 7/20/2015 currently working on editing and updating families and relationships in Fairfax City Cemetery in Fairfax Va, and the surrounding area.

My files are now available to me and I save everything posted.

(1)I accept all corrections from posters - If it is not correct, it can be changed!! Simple as that!!

(2) I never post a memorial or grave that I won't research further as to parents, siblings, etc.

Youngstown Vindicator after 1958

Find A Grave Memorial# 7841967
Sarah Jane Harrison Brown Sweeney:
after further research it is shown that Sarah's son John Singleton Mosby Brown's father was John Brown of Union Army, private, Company B, 6th N.J. Infantry. It showed him injured in the civil war.

How did you connect the Joseph Brown to Sarah ??

Poland Riverside Cemetery
Hi Anne,

I ran a cross your posting of the Rock's in Petersburg Cemetery, I am a descendant of them, they were my Dad's (Robert O. Wilson) great grandparents, they were Native American, he is the son of Hazel Ford (daughter of Lizzie Young) in Poland Riverside Cemetery, if you goto Poland Riverside Cemetery, there is Dorthy Howard also a daughter of Lizzie Young, then there is Hazel May Ford, next to her is Micheal Keish ( I think I got his last name tight) he was killed in 1980 out in ca. by a hit and run driver, he was the son of Dorthy June Keish, she was the daughter of Dorthy Howard, then there is Clarence C. Young, he was killed in action in Florence Italy in 1945 during WW2, they are all right in a row, I don't know who all is around there now because I left Poland in 1988 and a lot of my family have passed away since, my dad owned all those plots where Dorthy Howard, Hazel Ford, Micheal K. and I think his mother Dorthy June Keish and his father Mike Keish are buried around there, they passed after I left, my dad is also in that cemetery Robert Oliver Wilson, he passed away in 2000, I will post links to his memorial below, I also have a very old picture of Petersburg Cemetery, here it is, I have a question, is the little baby head stone still on the hill?, I haven't been to that Cemetery since around 1983, it has been a long time.

Here is my dad's memorial

Here is my Uncle

The guy that made his memorial is not a Young, he goes by the name Eddie Young, he is not my uncles son, his mother (my uncles wife) had him over a year after my Uncle was killed with a guy named Mitchner, my Uncle didn't have any children, the Young name died with him, my dad's last name Wilson was his real fathers name, his mother remarried Donald Ford and he never adopted my Dad, I don't know if you live around Poland, but Hazel lived on Kennedy Road, if you take Struthers road to Kennedy road and the second driveway on the left, it is a long drive that is where she lived and when she died in 1979 my dad got her house and that is where I grew up, it was 5173 Kennedy Rd., I think they have changed all the addresses on that road since 88, there is a lot of history there..... If you would do me a huge favor, take some pictures of Micheal Keish's head stone and my grandmother Hazel Ford's for me, I would like to make memorials for them.

Lydia Sheets
Thanks for sending me the edit for Lydia's birth year. Like most Find A Gravers, I try to be careful when entering information, but inevitably typos creep in. She is my great-grandmother.

Jennie Wildman
Hello: Just wanted to let you know that I spoke with the Union cemetery administrator yesterday. He confirmed that Jennie is buried at Site 3 so I've labeled and uploaded the picture. Bit hard to read in the memorial, but if you click on the picture it's pretty clear. As mentioned, only the foundation is left but that is where Jennie is buried.

Have a great weekend.

John Moore
John Moore, b. Jan 26, 1802, d. Nov 20, 1842 was my 5th great grandfather. I'm trying to find his parents. All your work here is so thorough, you probably have his memorial as complete as you can, but on the slim chance that you've recently found out more about him, I'm going to ask.
Do you have any clue what his parents names were?
I'd appreciate anything you can tell me.

Thank you.

RE: Fraizer McIntosh Jr
I happily paid for it and had it installed.
After learning of the sadness in his life, I very much wanted to be sure his burial site was marked and his story remembered.

RE: Cassard
I was surprised at how much I found in such a short time. Thank You for getting back to me and updating the memorial so quickly. I really hate it when I spend the time to transcribe a obit and it is not posted for a few weeks. By that time I forget, and find out it was never posted. What a waste of time. I don't bother with that contributor anymore. Thanks for everything, Bob

I loaded a few more pics that a buddie had gotten from work, might want to rotate. If any should be removed let me know. Also a note; the Memorial Rock is located at the west end of the Daniel Cassard VFW post

Libert, John--Hope Cemetery
Hello, Anne,

I posted the obit you found for John Libert. Sorry it took so long; it was buried in my email. Feel free to contact me again if I miss one of your edits.

All the best,


PS Thanks for the work you are doing in Hope Cemetery. My step-daughter's ancestors are buried there, but it is unlikely I'll ever visit again.
