Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love to read and to do genealogy. Discovering my heritage is fascinating. I have met numerous new cousins via the internet - it is great. I am very willing to share family history information with other family members. Some of the names that I am researching are: Austin, Nelson, Wilcox, Cahoon, Dietrich, Dunsmore, Strong, Park, Salway, and Swendsen.

I am Ruby's granddaughter - the date of her birth is incorrect. Furthermore, she would've wanted to have been listed as wife to Phillip Johnson as well, her 3rd marriage.

You have posted a photo on several of my memorials which you copied from another site. Find a grave clearly states do not copy photos from other sites.
If you did not take them, don't post them.
Rather than copy photos and present them as your own, simply put a photo request on a memorial. We have a lot of people who volunteer to do this.
I am requesting that you please remove these photos.

Thank you.

re estimated birth year
Ok, I don't except them without the death age in both the year and month. ie 62 yrs 5 mos.

Eg Thos. Dunsmore died May 4 1901. He was 62 years old.

You say for birth date subtract 62 from 1901 to get birth yr + "1839."

What month was he born? Do you know?
Well if he already had a birthday on or before May 4 then it works out just fine.

However, If his birthday is later on during the year he would be turning 63 years old.
Subtract 63 from 1901 and you have 1838.

So which is is birth year, 1838 or 1839?

I use family search site and I know they estimates birth yrs. but they say so. There is only one blank space for the exact birth year on this site.. So I put the age at death in the bio.

I don't obsess if there is a blank in the birth year as long as I put the age in the bio.
I figure if it was not important to the family to include the entire birth dates then why should I try to guess.

Hope that is Ok with you.

RE: Robert Orcutt
Thank you for responding. Sometimes our first requests are lost, deleted unintentionally, or life gets in the way or they have joined the many who are on these memorials. I send two and after that, I address all my emails to the and I have always received help. Not that you need to follow my plan.

I know also that some folks have so many rules, regs and whatever quoting from the book which to me is a little foolish but understandable as they may be the folks who never bend rules. I feel the memorials and info is already out there and in many places. If a family member of the deceased asks for deletion, then, of course I would delete it. Give credit to the sources of info, if you have it and God bless you.

The life meter is ticking, I need to go. Michigan mother

RE: Andrew Cahoon, Mary and Mahonri
Thank you for these tips. It is much appreciate. To see info on Andrew Cahoon and Mary + Mahonrii and family as well as William Carruth (Mary's father) see "Mormon Gold" by Kenneth Davies and Lori K. Hansen. William Carruth left a Journal detailing his activities after leaving Scotland with Andrew--but I don''t know where it is located: BYU?
