Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am youngest of 9 adopted children by
Stanley Eugene Disney and Frances Higbee Martin. I am also a twin. She was adopted with me.

I am the unofficial family historian. All the family was interested in finding their biological mother/father and I was far more interested in my [adopted] father's history.

I have been working on the family tree since 2007. I have found 1st cousins to 5th cousins alive and its been great. Looking for Disney, Martin, Miller, Vansants and Zirkles.

I also found my great grandmother at Pioneers Rest Cemetery in Texas through findagrave.com.

I started my husband's family tree 6 years ago and now have over 69,000 relatives identified. I used to laugh at those that had 50,000 on their tree; as I thought it impossible..... NO LONGER!!

I have found many of my husbands family connections here at findagrave. His direct line is Darby, Ducharme, Lundy, Mays, McClurg, Wilson.

When I visit cemeteries I am there to take pictures of family members but always try to also take pictures of anyone located near by to upload to the site in hopes to help others in their research.

If I own an entry on the site that is not a family member, I would be happy to transfer it.

Family Connections made thru findagrave

I was doing some headstone hunting in Altadena California, looking for my husband's Great Grandmother's burial and made an even more important discovery. You can read the story here


Ancestry DNA Testing Discovery

We were contacted by a 3rd cousin of my husbands thru the DNA testing on ancestry.com and she was looking for information on GGGrandmother Susan "Gangy" . She was fairly new at this searching, and was insisting that this Susan Henley was located in Ohio. Susan is also my husband's GGGrandmother.

I worked for a week straight on this Henley branch and kept hitting a brickwall. I finally said that something just doesn't fit....Doesn't make sense. Go back to your Mom (who was fortunately still alive) and ask some questions. Her Mom had had a stroke so her memory wasn't up to par.

She came back with the name of Susan Creswell which was her maiden name. From there I found her in Louisiana and we unearthed a big family secret. What I unearthed was that Susan Creswell was first married to a Jean Desire Ducharme, had 4 children and then ran away in 1901 in the middle of the night with the children. A newspaper article has Mr. Ducharme searching for them. I found Church parish records recording the children's births.

Susan apparently ran away to Mississippi, hid for at least 20 years and then married a John L. Mays and renamed the children to Mays. This is the surname of my husband's mother. Susan then married at least once more that we can verify, to a Mr. Henley. There are no marriage records as we think she never divorced her first husband Jean Ducharme. Susan only comes out of hiding in the 1930 census. The rest of the information comes from "family"

Susan Creswell raised my 3rd cousin's mother and my 3'rd cousin was trying to put together a family tree for her mother as a gift.

What we got was finding more family, and unearthing a family secret.

Edit Requests
Please do NOT post edit REQUESTS here on the public message board. Send me an email, its listed here.

I keep the email records on file, in case there is ever a question as to why I made the correction. I do respond to EVERY email.

Transfer Requests

Please do not assume that those memorial I made are not related to me. 95% of those I personally added are related. I have over 69,000 members of my husband's tree alone, so I have done the research and made quite a lot of the memorials.

I will also look at your profile to see how you manage your memorials, how long you have been a member and what you write on your profile

Steven Gahm's memorial
Hi again: The second message I sent didn't complete because of FindAGrave. Sometimes it doesn't cooperate.

What I wanted to tell you is that I contacted the second contributor and explained the situation, not mentioning your name or anything like that and offered to transfer mine to her.

She has a photo of the gravestone and I have other information. This may be the better way to do this.

I'll do my best to let you know the outcome.

Steven Gahm's memorial
Hi: Thanks for e-mailing me about Steven Gahm. Even though there is a duplicate memorial, I don't think I'll remove mine.
If I'm unable to add the cemetery name, I probably will remove it or maybe transfer it to the person who posted the 2nd one. I'm pretty sure I can't copy the gravestone photo and I wouldn't want to do it anyway.

Thanks for letting me know.

Collie Cox
Hi,

In your email you asked about the linking of Juanita Cox Keene to Collie Cox as her father and I'm not sure because I didn't link her to Collie and I can't change that. Linking doesn't work from the parent to the child, you have to link the child to the parent and I don't manage Juanita's memorial. You need to contact the managers of Juanita's memorial and ask them if they know for sure if Collie is her father.

Take care,
Kim

William Oliver Threet (55375540)
Just a note to thank you for posting the photos and bio for young William, my mother's brother, whom she never knew. He was born and died before she was born in 1919. I have been unable to locate his headstone and the headstones for his parents, my grandparents, but I'm not surprised. I was able to locate the graves for my mother's sister, Iona Mae Barkley.

I appreciate the hard work you do and your willingness to work with the families of loved ones. I have no wish to maintain William's memorial, so there is no need to transfer it to me. I just wanted to thank you.

Carol Barber Hudson,
daughter of Martha Katherine Threet Barber Lyle

Mary Garrett Bartlett Ancestors
Cameron, I have the same family that you have posted. Mary Garrett Dixon and John Kemp Bartlett, parents of Mary Garett Bartlett were cousins. Each had a Great Grandmother who was a sister to the other. They were Elizabeth Fairbanks who married Robert Bartlett and Sarah Ann Fairbanks who marrried Robert Dixon. The girls were the daughters of James Fairbanks Sr. and Elizabeth Troth. I am from the brother, James Fairbanks Jr. and Rebecca Osburn. All three families were with the Third Haven MM in Talbot Co., Maryland for generations. I do hope you are from them. As far as I know I am the only one who has worked on all the families including the Troth family. Please contact me and let me know.
