Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Western South Dakota with strong Germans from Russia roots, but now live in Tennessee. Primary family lines I'm following include: Schaefer/Lux/Deutsch/Littau/Drefs/Mundt/ Schatzthauer/Hogg...and then some. Would like to find the final resting places of as many relatives in the US as I can, but am going to need some help. In return I'm hoping I can assist folks looking for families in the Memphis area.

If you'd like a memorial transferred to you just ask, follow the FAG guideline of including your ID #, and unless they are part of my family tree, I'd love to transfer them to you. If they are part of your tree they belong with you not me. My pay-off is in connecting folks up with their history.

Andrew Jackson Edmondson
Mr. Schafer, thank you for adding a memorial for a War of 1812 Soldier.

You stated that A.J. Edmondson has no grave marker which is sad considering he served our country in it's time of need.

Would you be so kind as to contact the VFW, American Legion or county veteran representative so that a grave marker can be installed for A.J. Edmondson. I am sure the any of these organization's would be more than happy to honor a veteran.

Regards,

Jerry Fair

Jesse Herrington
Well, according to a write up in a book on the Herringtons in Kentucky, they list 10 children and the last born was a Jesse Jones Herrington. He was listed as Jesse on the 1850 and 1860 census and was Jesse on his marriage record.

I had actually thought of this before, but any kind of record lists him as Jesse.

A real puzzle.

William H. Herrington
Hi, Dale,
I took another look at the death record. My view had cut off the very left-hand side, so I didn't see it said Father. This is driving me crazy, as if you didn't know. I will have to see what I can find out about the Informant.

What is just too weird is that the William Houston Herrington who married Carrie McHenry had one child named Jesse. And they had another child named Leallian (William Houston's brother).

This makes sense especially when you see the Social Security Application form.

If I ever figure this out, I will be sure to let you know! Thanks for putting up with me!

William Houston Herrington
Hi, Dale,

It's me again. You mentioned that the information on William Houston Herrington came from his death record. I just looked through the actual record, and I cannot find where he lists his father as William H. Herrington. So many people have his father as William H. and the other half have it as Jesse J.

Any suggestions?

RE: WILLIAM HOUSTON HERRINGTON
This kind of thing drives me crazy. I've been led the wrong way so many times by transcription errors. To make matters worse, I'm tracking William Houston Herrington's son, Leallian Cortez Herrington. He was about the third in the family to be named that. He then changed his first name to Lawrence! :)

Thanks for responding!

WILLIAM HOUSTON HERRINGTON
Hi,

I'm hoping you can help me figure this one out. On the William H. Herrington memorial, it lists his parents as William H. Herrington and Mary Thompson.

On the Social Security Application it has:


Name:
William Houston Herrington

SSN:
415010445

Gender:
Male

Race:
White

Birth Date:
5 Jul 1870

Birth Place:
Franklin, Kentucky

Father:
Jessie J Herrington

Mother:
Mary E Thompson

Type of Claim:
Original SSN.

Notes:
May 1937: Name listed as WILLIAM HOUSTON HERRINGTON

This appears as the same person, but the two fathers' names are entirely different?

Can you help me with this?

Thanks,


Joni
