Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm utilizing Find-A-Grave to share my father's genealogy research.

Dad was a conservative researcher. He was never captivated by how many he could find or how far back he could go. He documented the facts and then drew reasonable conclusions. He often said, "Too many people find a button and then try to sew a vest onto it."

Dad understood the need for several independent facts to support the same conclusion. And even then, "Only the mother knew for sure."

RE: Andrew Fortune
You don't have to. I am descended from Andrew's brother John Fortune, so I was looking for clues.

Thanks for the corrections!

RE: Crispin Foster
Transferred him to you. He is buried in a poor grave. I wasn't able to find any information on Gilbert Foster in Allen Co.

RE: Crispin Foster
Done! I also have an infant of Gilbert Foster if you would like his also.

Crispin Foster
Is he your family, if so would you like me to transfer him to you?

Scanned obituaries
Please do not post any more scanned obituaries to the memorials I manage, it is contrary to Find a Grave guidelines and they are removed by the admins. If you have pertinent factual information from the obituary you'd like me to add, just send a correction. Thanks, LG

RE: Everett M King
Hi Brad,
As you probably noticed my memorial for Everett M. King shows himself as his son. That is not my entry. Done by someone else and shows up as a link on my memorial. I can't remove it.

Foster Lowery McCullough Cem
Brad, do you know anyone who would be willing to look for some monuments not listed in the Foster Lowery McCullough Cemetery outside Coshocton Ohio? I am told I have a few family members buried there but only find 1 on this site. Elizabeth Smith. I am looking for her husband burial, Thomas Smith, died around 1844 I think and their son and daughter in law Thomas and Isabella Smith. I live hours from there or would do it myself. Sincerely, Jill Morris.
