Elizabeth Freshour Hillis Haughran
So - I am a 3rd great-granddaughter of Elizabeth Freshour Hillis Haughran. Elijah Hillis died bef. 1833 in Moxahala, Perry County, Ohio when he fell off a house at a house-raising, leaving Elizabeth with 10 children (she may have been pregnant with the 10th when he died). I am able to find her grave at South Fork Cemetery as Elizabeth Haughran on Find-A-Grave. I have been unable to find a gravesite for Elijah Hillis.

Elizabeth remarried John Haughran in Somerset, Perry, Ohio in 1834. John died in Dec. 1847 in Perry County. I think he was born in Ireland, not sure which year, or if he had a previous marriage. I think there are a lot of Haughrans, and a lot of confusion with similar names.

I believe Elizabeth and Elijah's oldest daughter, Mary Ann Hillis, married Patrick Haughran in 1837. Patrick may be a brother to John Haughran, or perhaps a cousin? Patrick Haughran died in May, 1890 and is buried in Chapel Hill Cemetery. I think Mary Ann died prior to 1850.

Any enlightenment would be appreciated.

Also - Ann Walpole married my 2nd great grand uncle, Peter Carroll. My 2nd great grandmother was his sister, Catherine (Kate) Carroll, who married Albert Francis Hillis. Whew - lots to digest.

Lynchia Preston
Hello I went to the cemetery that find a grave said she was buried. Most of the tombstones were unreadable. On top that mountain the graves are not maintained or kept up. Many tombstones were broken and laying on the ground. Some were covered with moss. I really tried to find her tombstone but I was not able to do so. One of them could of been her but I can not prove it. So I posted the photo's showing the condition of the cemetery and graves. There was 1 Preston that you could read but I forgot who it was. It was a Male. I did go to Lynchia's father's grave Moses Preston and his wife Fanny. It is hard to find our family's graves because they are on top of mountains and some cemetery's are in other people's yards. Like this might of been our ancestors property they buried their family's there and later the property was sold and now strangers own our ancestors cemetery. Most people are nice enough to let you look and help you if they can. The man in the photo lived below that cemetery and he took me up that mountain and showed me the cemetery. Johnson County Kentucky is a very nice place and I am proud my family came from there. Wish I could of helped you. Take Care Susan Phillips

Isaac Edwards # 5497415
I saw your note on Isaac's memorial, so I thought I'd take a moment to answer your question. Find A Grave has a rule that transfers only go to people who are related by four generations or less. This includes only to 2nd g.grandparents. If more than one person is requesting the transfer, it goes to the closer relative. Some managers are very rigid on thise rule, but there are many others who are more lax.

I've run into one contributor who won't even accept my edits on family who are even closer. Her excuse is that I'm using Find A Grave to do my family history, and that's not the purpose of Find A Grave. I found out later that there are people who do use Find A Grave exclusively to build their trees, but I have no idea how they can and expect any amount of accuracy.

Anyway, I thought I'd answer your very legitimate question.

#17858086 Martin Walpole
Dear Denver & Regina Gray:
Martin Walpole is my Gr, Gr, Great Grandfather. Wondering how many children did Martin and Margaret Walpole have? shows that there are 10 children. I'm questioning if this accurate, because two of the children's birth date show they were born four months apart. So did Martin have a daughter Anne Walpole Carroll. She was born 7/1824 and died 2/2/1903.

Also do you know if Martin or Margaret Walpole came to America with any relatives parents or siblings?

P.S. This family is on my Mom's, Emaline Carroll Westrcik, side of the tree.
