Diane (or Jo as you were known when you and Patsy played with my Mom Elaine when you came to visit K.C. when you were little). We have a cousins' facebook page devoted to getting cousins together and genealogy and such - if you're interested in joining in, ask Patsy's sons where it is! Look forward to getting to know you some day!

Sorry you find photo offensive. It is the only photo we have of our great grandmother. If you have better one please share.

Joseph Carter (# 88621465 and # 70640952)

Your entry for Joseph Carter III (my 4th great grandfather) is redundant with one that had been created nearly a year earlier by Richard Schultheiss. Also, although your entry contains details that Richard's does not, he has the correct gravesite/cemetery (Carter Cemetery #110), along with photos of the gravestone.

It would be greatly appreciated if one of you would delete your entry (after combining the info of both).

Joseph Carter
I am asking you to review your Post. I am not in this for anything other than correct information, and to give information I have researched and collected. If you see something incorrect on my post, please let me know, with documentation if possible. I hope I do not sound is just discipline.

Children of Joseph Carter III and Magdalene Salle Chastain:
i. Benjamin Ford Carter.
ii. Dora Carter.
iii. Joseph Carter IV, 1791-1876.
iv. Judith Carter married John Gevedon, son of Joseph Gevedon and Judith "Phebe" Carter (Judith "Phebe" daughter of Joseph Carter II and Judith Chastain.
v. Rene Chastain Carter married Magdalene Sarah Chastain, daughter of Martin Chastain and Elizabeth Ayers.
vi. Anderson Andrew Carter.
vii. Anna Chastain Carter, married Jacob Ragan.
viii Elijah Carter married Elizabeth Ragland.
ix. Oakley Carter.
x. Virginia Jane Carter married (1) Joseph Mckinney, son of Josiah Mckinney and Mary Polly Carter (Mary Polly daughter of Joseph Carter and Judith Chastain) She married (2) David Burnett Carter September 08, 1825, son of Ammon Carter (son of Joseph Carter and Judith Chastain) and Mary Burnett (Mary Burnett daughter of James Burnett and Frances Hooper, sister of Williamson Burnett husband of PriscillaCarter daughter of Joseph Carter and Judith Chastain) David was born March 17, 1796 in Buckingham, Co., Va, and died April 27, 1896 in Morgan, Co., Kentucky.

Their father Joseph Carter III #70640952, married Magdalene Salle Chastain, dt. of Rev. Rene and Mary Ford (Faure) Chastain. Joseph Carter III listed in *Carter Cemetery #110 Morgan County, Kentucky.

Daughter of Joseph Carter IV, Margaret E. Carter, married John Pieratt, his father and mother headstones are in this cemetery. Margaret's brother Asa C. Carter, 1816, wife Mahala Hammon also listed there.

Find A Grave # 43171216 and # 45585497 the same! Two different states. This Joseph Carter can not be Joseph Carter III (who married Magdalene Salle Chastain) son of Joseph Carter and Judith Chastain. I have no proof but I am thinking he is a descendant of Capt. Thomas Carter and Catherine Dale.

* U.S. 460, Mize, Morgan County, Kentucky USA.

RE: Patricia Lottie Allen
No-problem, I wanted to fix-up where I could. Billings Cemetery. Note: Find A Grave Contributor MAH seems to have become Inactive or Unwilling to update those memorials. So! all I could do is: Enter what Gladwin County Record Obituaries I do have and help link up memorials together.

Billings Cem. was (our) weakest list on Find A Grave. I hope now other's can see the Obituaries & Headstones posted & ignore some of the Bogus names... {Wish Find A Grave Admin would give me the Special Permission to update the Full Names & a few incorrect vitals in that Cemetery.

Was happy! to contribute...

RE: Re: Patricia Allen Memorial
I totally agree with you!!! The Memorial #13457839 created by: MAH on Feb. 26, 2006 is useless. Though, how Find A Grave operates is: Anything which is a duplicate even though, it is updated by other's after the fact... Remains the one which has to be built on. Not my policy. What my happen later is: MAH memorial & yours needs to be merged and sadly Find A Grave might give MAH the total control of both Memorials.

Yes, your right! They mis-spelled Patricia first name wrong. {I'm finding alot of mistakes with this contributor, for (our) Billings Cemetery Memorials. Full of typo's and mistakes.} I did however added to your Corrected Memorial, her Gladwin County Record Obituary & connected MAH memorial #13457836 to Patricia Allen Memorial.

If you have a Copy of Floyd Neil Allen Obituary. Send me the text at: and I can insert it into the Bio section. {I have special Find A Grave abilities, such as: Linking & Inserting Obituaries in any Gladwin County, MI Cemetery Memorials. Though, can't update any Names or Vitals. If they are wrong by other's...

I'm hoping Find A Grave will soon Transfer MAH Billings Created Memorials over to me... Then I can go in and get everything corrected. {I'm frustrated too! I think/heard the Original Owner has now left Find A Grave and not sure who is in charge?} Emailing one isn't getting answered back...
