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, 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.

I research many names, particularly ones that are difficult - various ethnic groups that came to America and altered their name, and slaves. Everyone has the right to know who they are, including adopted individuals.

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.

RE: Great job on research
Thanks Anne for your kindness!

I see that you have been here on Find A Grave since about the year 2000. You have done a remarkable job! You are dedicated and truly love what you're doing.

You are showing the love of God to those who cross your path. Thanks for reaching out to people. May God continue to bless you on your journey.

Take care,

Hi Anne,

I guess the stones are right, but the information isn't. Like the Jacob they were trying to say it was didn't have the same birth year, not even close and his birth place posted belongs to him.

Jacob O Rupert 5643720
Hi Anne,

I was just researching my Rupert tree again and the page for Jacob O. Rupert has some wrong dates. I submitted the correct date and birthplace to wherever it goes--to you?

The stone photos are also for another Jacob Rupert. I'll tell ya, we have so many duplicate names in this family that people aren't comparing the dates and places enough to get them right. First there was Benjamin (thanks for helping me figure that one out) and then I find Rebecca Rupert and Margaret Rebecca Oyster Rupert that people are confusing. There's a Leah Rupert Fox and a Leah Fox that people are confusing--aaargh!

Gladys Rupert Turman knew what she was talking about--which is which and what the dates and places are.

So the change that needs to be made is his birthdate and place which is 1792 in Berks County, PA. And to remove those stones that are not his either--the death date doesn't even match...

Thanks, Barb Antonelli

RE: Elizabeth Deneale Willcoxson 10643872
Thank you, Anne- I am also sending additional information from other family grave records. I am just trying to update everything to keep as consistent with our research as possible.

RE: Harriet a Myers Beight
That sounds like a great idea. Let me know your findings.

RE: Harriet a Myers Beight
Thanks for your reply. If I had to guess I would say Harriet was buried in Columbiana,but may have been removed to Old Springfield after her husband died.It wasn't that far between cemeteries.I think the daughters memorial shows a strange placement of she and her mothers headstones,in relationship to the rest of the cemetery. Out of place like they were moved to the edge of the cemetery.If they were buried in Old Springfield,adding to the sons headstone makes sense.
A good mystery for sure.

RE: Harriet a Myers Beight
Thanks for your reply,it isn't my memorial though.I noticed she was linked to her family twice.

RE: Permission to Quote You
Thank you very much. I could say a lot as well . . . But let me at least say this out of extreme frustration. I have in recent months come across a disturbingly high percentage of over-the-top rude and controlling people. I would equate them to junior high school children practicing bullying via social media behind a pseudonym. Happy Trails, Nancy

Permission to Quite You
Ms Rupert - I would like to say I'm very awed and impressed by you wonderful work. I ran onto a quote from your profile page used by "PMS Sillix", a fellow contributor I ran onto in my research. She used this quote and I would like to also request to use it, slightly modified (leaving out the part about your friends, etc) and give you credit , of course. This quote EXACTLY expresses in a nutshell my sentiments regarding adding everything I can to a memorial for the families now and for generations to come. I know that I'm not the only researcher who grasps at the tiniest bit of knowledge about the families I research, and that the tiniest bit of info xpcan be a priceless clue to a puzzle. The quote I'm referring to and how I've made a coup,e of changes to use it with your name IF you grant permission:

"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 Find A Grave rules... yes we get it! To me and my Find a Grave friends, 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 A STONE"!" --Quoted from Anne Rupert, Long-Time Find A Grave Contributor and Genealogist

What you summed up expresses my sentiments exactly and I am indeed sick to death of the "Registration Contributors" who dully quote the Find A Grave rules which by-the-way are quite changeable on a regular basis. These are the people who do "bare bones" memorials without one scintilla of information. Thank you for considering my request and for your time. Happy Trails, Nancy

RE: Great work you do
Oh my goodness:-) Thank you for your kind words.
People need to be remembered and not just a registered grave. I still have a long way to go in researching my memorials, but I take them a day at a time. By the way, I love your bio.
