|Bio and Links|
I have always been fascinated with history, both the history of my family and history in general. As a child, I loved to hear my grandmother and her brother and sisters talk about their Grandpa Beachum who was a Confederate soldier, and their great great Grandfather King, who was a Soldier in the Revolution. Their stories made these long dead people live again for me. |
To me, Find A Grave is not only a wonderful resource for historical research, but also a personal way of remembering loved ones... both loved ones we've known, and loved ones from the long past.

|Kathy M Behunin||Hugh Sherwood 1751 and Rebecca Hasty|
I've traced Hugh to Rutherford Tennessee but I know nothing about his children or if anyone else went with him to tennessee? I found him in two census' and some marriage material. Would like to find the will and some other definitive info on his children.
Can you point me in the right direction?
Thank you very much...I'm a fan.

John, you are very welcome. I was researching C.C. Shive and found your memorials with missing dates. I was able to locate the dates for you and it's always good to pass along information. Happy to be of help and thank you for the acknowledgement.

|Mary Louise Reynolds||Jeremiah Fields of Guilford County, North Carolina|
I've found your Field/Fields postings extremely useful, and I am hopeful that you can suggest a solution to a long-standing problem for me. I am descended from a Revolutionary soldier, Benjamin Phipps (ca 1761-1838), who was born in Guilford County, NC, and died in Grayson County, Va. Benjamin had a younger brother, Aaron Phipps (ca. 1763-1840), who was also a Revolutionary soldier and lived his entire life in Guilford County.
In 1845 Aaron Phipps's widow Jane (Ingle) Phipps applied for a pension based on her husband's service. She had to prove her marriage, and her oldest son Samuel Phipps made an affidavit based on the record of his birth in 1788. In the affidavit, Samuel Phipps stated: "his Father the said Aaron Phipps had his age set down by his cousin Jeremiah Fields, as he was a poor penman in an old Testament as he has frequently heard his Father say." It's unclear whether Samuel meant that Jeremiah Fields was Aaron Phipps's cousin or Samuel's cousin. The Ingles, Samuel's mother's family, are well documented, however, and I cannot find any Field connection among them. So I think that the Fields connection is on the Phipps side. Can you suggest what it might be? Could it be that Mary Phipps, the daughter of William and Jane Phipps, married a Phipps and was the mother of Joseph and Aaron Phipps? Or could the scribe Jeremiah Fields be connected to the Phippses through his mother?

Hi John. You have a wonderful eye. I didn't catch that,even though I highlighted the publish date. I have spent the last 3 days doing a huge amount of searching for John's death, without any success.I have 5 newspaper articles dated July 17th to July 28th and all state his injury "A few days ago" except Greensboro Patriot states "last week" on 7-23-1868.I like to have factual info that I can document....don't know what happened here. I'll correct DOD on Ancestry.Thanks for your proofreading,Cousin!
