Bio Photo For a loved PetRAINBOW BRIDGE author unknownBy the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.Where the friends of man and woman do run,When their time on earth is over and done.For here, between this world and the next,Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.On this golden land, they wait and they play,Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.They romp through the grass, without even a care,Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.For just at that instant, their eyes have met;Together again, both person and pet.So they run to each other, these friends from long past,The time of their parting is over at last.The sadness they felt while they were apart,Has turned into joy once more in each heart.They embrace with a love that will last forever,And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.......✿.,.•*¨`*•. ☆ .•*¨`*•.✿......✿•*¨`*•.

McColley's Church Cemetery
E. Prettyman Willey - I have searched the entire cemetery and did not locate a headstone for him. I did find him in St. Johnstown Cemetery in Greenwood. FYI.

Stephenson/Stevenson Family Cemetery
Can I safely assume that since everyone has been photographed except for a couple that the few left out are either missing the stone or unreadable?

Robert Stevenson
Per newspaper article in April 24, 1908, edition of MILFORD CHRONICLE in the "Milton News" column, it states "Robert Stevenson died at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kendle [sic] Stevenson, near Fairmount, on Thursday of pneumonia, . . ."

RE: Hazard
gennie! interesting that you mentioned that you hated auto correct...I think all of us who work in genealogy hate it...I deal with it everyday and I am threatening my mac that I am going to turn it off!!

thanks for the use of your hazzard info and images! I also appreciate the work you do as I know how much time it takes...but the reward is great, especially when you find that old broken fallen over gravestone out in the middle of nowhere!

Happy Hunting

Rhoads Shankland
Hello, Ginnie,
The info you put on Rhoads Shankland's page started me off on a several days odyssey but, I can't regret it. It is wonderful. I take it there was no gravestone for Rhoads as you put the one for his daughter on his page. He is a great great in my father's line thru his son James who went to Ohio. I wonder if you would please source the page of marriages from Sussex Co., DE, that you also put on his page. Thanks for all that you have done

Jane in Phoenix

PS. I would love to use your pictures, too.

Virginia Courtney mann
Just happened to see you left a message with questions regarding Virginia Courtney Mann & the Mann family. We lived right behind the family in Aston PA. It wasn't until the third child passed (Ginger) that they found out what was the problem. I believe all 4 children were afflicted with "Long QT syndrome", a cardiac condition that was ultimately the cause of John, Kevin & Ginger's deaths. Because of that finding, the 4th remaining child was able to be treated & is still living today.
Also, Ginger did get married before she passed and "Courtney" is her married last name, I believe.

Hello Gennie,

I was just looking at a few grave responses when a message of yours caught my eye. You really have a Prettyman Family Bible!

Looking for any & all info on all of the below!. Would be greatly appreciated:

My GG GP's: Lavania M. Prettyman
b. 1832, Sussex Cty Del.

Parents: Burton Prettyman & Rachel West
Spouse: Frederick A. Wood
b. 1822, Piermont, N.Y.
After about 5 years of searching, Last week,I found Lavania's & Frederick's marriage recorded in The United Methodist church register. They married 03/01/1857. Frederick b. in Piermont & Lavania, Georgetown, DE.

They mostly resided in NJ. I found a piece of info stating she passed away about 1882 while she was away from home. Otherwise I cannot find anything else on her. I would like to know where she/they are buried. There appears to be a few other Lavania Prettyman's born within a few years of each other in Sussex Cty & everybody at has them all confused with each other. As anybody researching their tree, I have a few stories of my own how I finally found out my GG GP's names, lol.

Thanks in advance for any info on this Prettyman line.

Howard Clark
Hi Gennie,

I believe Howard 11326839 may be the brother of my grandfather, Clarence Clark. He married Lula May Passwaters. Their daughter, Rose Wyatt, was my mother.

Clarence died while loading a train car of lumber in Penn Station. His body was taken to Cheswold and that is all I know. He died a month before my mother turned 2 years old. So she was never able to tell me anything about him.

I have noticed you have memorials on a number of my relatives. So I was wondering if you may know who his parents were. I can't search any further on his branch without knowing who they were.

I would appreciate any info you may be able to provide. I also wonder if we are related.

Thank you,

Dale Wyatt
