Bio and Links
I have always been interested in family history, even as a young kid. I was lucky enough to know two great grandmothers who helped with the family history. Cora (Ruby) Reynolds kept many letters, obituaries and artifacts from her family which made documenting the family so much easier.

Please feel free to use the photos that I have taken in any way you wish.

Newman headstones
I know it is confusing when there are more than one memorial. I photographed both North maple Ridge and Maple Ridge. I do not make memorials if there is already one for that person in the correct cemetery. I do not make memorials for people after reading the obituary in the newspaper or by getting the information in books. I photograph the headstones....check to see if there are already a memorial for that cemetery then if not, I create a memorial for that person. Carmian has the memorials wrong. She has them placed in the wrong cemetery. I can take you to the cemetery and show you his headstone. They are in North Maple Ridge....not Maple Ridge. Sorry for any confusion.

Hi! Amos Tiffin Davis LaRue
I don't want you to think I've forgotten about you, so will send you an email soon. I'm caught up in a 30-Day coloring challenge right now for card-makers and need to get myself organized. Meanwhile you may go to our genealogy website that's posted on my profile page for some of the stuff I have there on the LaRues. I also need to contact a couple of cousins who will be really interested in this information you want to share. Have you heard of Bill Abram? He was collecting LaRue information some time back, but I haven't heard from him for awhile.

Eliza Sowash
Hi Richard, This stone is actually a mystery to me. According to a book entitled, "Venango County, PA Cemetery Reocrds and Early Church Histories, Volume 3, Scrubgrass Township" on page 63, it has "Eliza, wife of ________", it states that the stone is broken and half of the stone is in the ground. The book assumes it may be Eliza Sowash because it is near Margaret and Lemuel Sowash. I however am not sure of the last name. The stone it's self is nothing like the other two as far as design. Since it is only half of a stone, it could even belong to a person named Elizabeth. I will go back out after Memorial Day and see what other families are buried near this stone. Sorry I could not give you any additional information. Susan Page, Scrubgrass Presbyterian Cemetery Sexton

RE: Hazel B Sowash Clark
Hi, Richard; I am answering your question about Hazel Sowash Clark. She was my Great Uncle Val's wife and they lived in Sedalia, Mo. (Pettis County). She was born 10-30-1890 and died 9-4-1966. She married Samuel Valentine Clark on 4-14-1920. She is buried in Crown Hill Cemetary in Sedalia. They lived here for many years on, I believe 13th St. I loved going to visit Aunt Hazel and Uncle Val. According to my Great Aunt Sadie, Hazel was Uncle Val's second wife--her full name was Sylvia Hazel. They had a daughter Betty and a son Kenneth. I'm sorry I don't know Aunt Hazel's parents names; I'll try to find them for you. Hope this helps. Joann

RE: Sowash
Richard-Any help that you can offer on the Harkless Sowash line is greatly appreciated. I want to be as accurate as possible. I do research on all the "side and down lines'" meaning any true relative to me-Aunts, Cousins , etc. I know I have mistakes and I'm working to find and correct them.

I double checked the 1900 census and both World War registrations and they confirm that the headstone birth year was correct. I somehow made a mistake when stating his birth year. Good catch. I also didn't realize the tombstone photo was rotated and will try to correct that as well.

Daniel and Ada Lisle Sowash
Cousin Richard,

Ada Amy Lisle's parents are Mariman and Margaret Anderson Lisle, buried nearby. Mariman and Margaret are my 2nd great grandparents. Ada's sister Carrie, who married Alben Butler, are my great grandparents.

Garnet was a child of Alben and Carrie Lisle Butler. She died shortly after her marriage to Otto Aufrance, in the flu epidemic of 1918/1919.

I have lots more information, obituaries, and biographic sketches, viewable online at the following site
that link will take you to Mariman Lisle's page.

I have been to the Shrimplin Cemetery 2 times and am related to almost everyone buried there, they are all connected thru inter-marriages and so forth. I have tried to connect as much as I can, but some find-a-grave people have not responded to my requests to take over or have them link them.

If you look at the information, or have any or more questions, please let me know. Also drop me a line if you find the information useful, sometimes I wonder if anyone is really interested, until I get an email like yours.

Cousin Mark Blosser
