Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy visiting cemeteries, taking photos of the gravestones and statuary. I was so excited when I discovered the FIND A GRAVE website because I finally have a place to use the information I have been gathering.
My special interests are my ancestors' families: McCorkle, Brandon, Locke, McLeod, Coleman, Yeomans/Youmans, Rountree, Gardner, Webb, Moore, Hanby, Smith, Holt, Gentry, Brashear, Pitts, Hall, Forney, Hoke, Bergner, Balfour, Abernethy, Givhan, Johnson, Mobberley, Potts, Pegram, Bumpass, Matthews, Dozier, Perry, Coats, Jenkins, Dorsey, Pope, Chapman, Dixon, Porter, Sandifer, and Dickinson.
Recently I have begun research of my husband's family and am interested in the Landrum, Corbett, Carter, Copeland, Rentz, Pruitt, Redmond, Music, Wilkie and King families.
My profile photo is of the real "Little Marie." She was Marie Chapman Senyard, daughter of Mary Ethel Brashear and Dr. Oscar Chapman, sister of Elmo Mobley Chapman, and wife of Faye Senyard. She was my grandmother Alice McCorkle Coleman's first cousin, and, though I never knew her, I know that she, like many other members of our family, was very interested in preserving her family's history and heritage, as I am. I use her picture to honor her. This picture is courtesy of Moses M. Coleman, Jr., my father.
Much of the personal family info that I have been able to add to my family memorials comes from the book "Granny Bess" which contains historical info, letters, newspaper articles, and photos of the McCorkle, Brashear, Moore, Webb, Dorsey, Johnson and related families.
Two other excellent sources of information for Moore family research are the book "Rodeham Moore of Patrick County, Va - His Descendants and Known Kin" by Merle Moore, and The Association For The Descendants of Rodeham Moore. The Association is a national organization and has an internet web site.

Kerr & Brashear
I do have a few Brashear's and Kerr's in my database. Are you looking for anyone specifically?

I check Find A Grave most every day for Brokaw Burials as well as related families. I don't have anything else on her family. Wish I could be more helpful. DB

Thank you for letting me know about my photo error. I have deleted the wrong headstone photo.

RE: Aniello Guido
Thank you, Kathleen. You write: "I looked on several sites and could not find Elisabetta's death certificate. I saw your family tree on Ancestry and then found Stefano's death cert on Family Search - that document says that Stefano is interred in Lindey Hill Cemetery......I think that should be Linden Hill Cemetery in Queens. And, NO, I don't know anything about it except that there is a phone number on Find A Grave. I also noted the name of his 2nd wife as you have it in your tree with the dates and then I found a death certificate for Pauline Guido with the same death date that you have. However, when I looked at her death certificate on Family Search the info does not jive. The death cert states that Pauline Quido who died Kings County on April 22, 1946 was the wife of Vincenzo Guido and that she was interred in St. John Cemetery. Just thought I'd throw that curved at you. If you don't use Family Search you should because it's a great free site and they most of the death certificates for Kings, Queens, New York County up to about 1947 or so and shows most of the info on the death cert...not like the death certificate INDEX that you get with Ancestry. If I find any info I will pass it along to you.:

Thanks so much. Elisabetta's death is a mystery. I have the Linden Hills certificate that was given to my family, which says where the plot is. She is, as you have found out, not buried with her husband, but rather, her brother. Her husband, my ggfather, remarried to Paula.

I was just in New York last week on business, but couldn't find the time to get to Queens to see the grave first hand. Maybe next time.

RE: Aniello Guido
Dear Little Marie:

Apologize for not responding more promptly. (I travel too much!)

Yes, please transfer my grandfather's entry.

BTW, do you know anything about Lindell Hill Cemetery in Queens?

Aniello's mother, Elisabeta Gadaleta is buried there, but I can't seem to find any record online. I do have an old burial card that the cemetery gave my great grandfather when they buried her. She died on May 20, 1915.

I very much appreciate your help.

Take care,

RE: Esther Kinzey
Hi Kathleen,
Yes I agree with your findings. Nice work. Please let me know if you learn anything about Catherine Crawford who is Irene Loretta Kinzey's mother. Thank you,

RE: Henry C Crawford
Hi Marie,
Thank you for what you are doing. It will help people in the future. Henry is my g-g-grandfather. I recently learned where he is buried and my wife and I went out there. We also visited St. John cemetery and Holy Cross cemetery. I took a pic of the grave I think Henry is in, if it even has a headstone, not 100% sure yet, but the stone was badly worn and broken. I am reluctant to post the photo until I check with the cemetery. I am also trying to understand why his wife Mary E Everett is not buried with him (she's with William J). Do you know? As a result I have some new info so have been active online. If you don't mind I may send more link requests.
I have some info on Lily and Ralph H Kinzey. She later married Walter F Striffler. She is supposedly buried in The Evergreens. Ralph and Lily had a daughter Esther M Kinzey born abt 1899 (born Illinois) in the 1910 US Census (I have no further info) and Grace M whom you have. I have spent some time with Lily's families trying to learn more about the parents and sibs. It's been interesting work. Thank you,
Bill Crawford

Thanks for the transfer. I read your bio. I have a King/Moore family tree for my maternal grandparents. The Kings settled in West Tennessee and the Moores in Eastern Kentucky. Any of that sound familiar to you?

Could you please transfer his memorial to me. He is my husband's uncle. I will do a couple of edits for now, but I would like to add more to his memorial. Thanks

What stunning portraits you shared. I can't wait to show them to my Mother- in-law, Imogene Freeman Miner who was their great-grand daughter! She is now 94! She is the daughter of Sparks P. Freemen and Willie Caroline Rimel, and the granddaughter of Willie Wilborn Freeman and Sue Gantt.. She has only one living sibling left, Sparks Freeman, Jr.

Just wanted to thank you for sharing these portraits and thus allowing me to share them with her today. What a joy and a blessing.

Many thanks, Robin Knowles Miner in Birmingham, AL
