Bio and Links
Bio Photo I no longer make changes, additions, transfers from messages left on my contributor page. Please follow FindAGrave procedures by using the Edit tab on the memorial page to request changes, additions, request transfers, etc.

Thank you for following FindAGrave procedures.

Please ask permission before posting my personal family photographs, photographs I have taken of grave stones or biographical material I have written from my memorial pages on this site to or any other website or personal webpages.

I follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers of memorials:

Second, Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Please see FindAGrave Frequently Asked questions for more information:

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed information and photos for my memorials.

RE: Isaac H. Haller 10915485
It was from the cemetery records for their son, Henry Walter "Harry" Haller, taken from Evangelical Lutheran death records; listed his parents as Isaac Henry Jacob Haller and Mary Lavenia Baer.

This was posted to me rather than you - but a happy accident as the Mary and I are actually related 😊

Thank you for the offer to transfer the memorial of my great grandfather to me. In a different time I would have loved to do that. However, at 77, I feel it needs to be kept up to date by some younger person. I have put all of my data on Ancestry, so that it can be viewed by others. The story of the burning of the courthouse is not completely true. There WAS a fire in 1916 that burned the District Clerk's records, but an earlier judge in the county had seen the need for a fireproof vault in the County Clerk's office. He had it built and those records survived. Until then the judge had been ostracized for spending the money on the vault. I lived in Paris for many years and spent many hours in the County Clerk's office in it's attic transcribing old records that went back to the beginning of the organization of the county, about 1844. The Lamar County Genealogical Society has the books that I transcribed for sale in the genealogy library.

RE: John Mitchell Waters, III 169495221
Evidently I clicked on something I didn't mean too. John Waters was my grandfather and I know his mother was Louise Birch Waters. Maybe I meant to link my mother, Joan Doerscher, which I see you have done. So, you can disregard my edit. Thank you for double checking on it.

RE: John H. Brown 57296889
The updates to my first cousin 4 times removed are from family records including some that are on the Daughters of the American Revolution web site (see The DAR site is correct in regards to the DOB for John Henry Brown but claims that his mother died in 1848 although that cannot be true as she is shown on the 1850 census

"United States Census, 1850," database with images, FamilySearch ( : 9 November 2014), Mary J Brown in household of William Brown, Harpers Ferry, Jefferson, Virginia, United States; citing family 1702, NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.).

Mary was from D.C., which is where she married William Baker Brown (the father).

"District of Columbia Marriages, 1811-1950", database with images, FamilySearch ( : 1 June 2015), William Brown and Mary Jane Dove, 1845.

After Mary's death, WIlliam married Sarah Langford in Arlington:

"Virginia Marriages, 1785-1940," database, FamilySearch ( : 5 December 2014), Wm. D. Brown and Sarah I. Langford, 18 May 1852; citing Arlington, Virginia, reference 19; FHL microfilm 30,497.

RE: Maj Charles Sherman Hoyt, Jr 27389128
The correct location is Section V, Row A, Site 12-13. This is only a cenotaph for Jr.
His parents and infant sister are buried in the plot.
