Bio and Links
Bio Photo Working on genealogy for my family. I live in Moncks Corner, SC.
As time permits, I take pictures at local cemeteries and add memorials to find-a-grave. I try to look up as much information on the individuals as I can find to create links and add to their bio. I hope that the added memorials help people who are looking for family members and friends. If you come across a family member whose information is incorrect or that you would like transferred to you, please contact me.

John Newland and Margaret Weir Newland
I am a descendant of John and Margaret Weir Newland. The information you have listed for them is not correct. There was more than one John Newland in Frederick County Virginia during this time period. You have the John Newland who was a revolutionary war soldier and married to Catherine Weirman mixed up with the John Newland who married Margaret Weir in 1788 in Frederick County VA. Thanks, Ellen

RE: Kalaher / Kaleher Family
Thank you. The daughter I'm researching is Margaret who married Michael Vaughn. Their daughter Loretta married Michael Mullin. My email is I noticed you have a few photos of the family also.

Kalaher / Kaleher Family
I'm researching this family for a neighbor of mine. Would you have any documents you would be willing to share? The other names I'm researching for her are Mullin, Phipps, Vaughn, and Waggoner.

117238205 Ruth Brazzle
Hi Shawn,
I saw on ancestry that this individual, Ruth Jean Brazzle is in your Kansas Tree with only a sourced items from another tree. I just wanted to point out her FG memorial to you, since I happened to recently photograph it and it has a dod on it. Thanks.

Rena and Ellen Ice
I think you may have identified the two Ice sisters incorrectly in the Thomas Ice family picture. Rena (born 1888) and Ellen (born 1883) are the two youngest daughters of Thomas and Eliza Folks Ice. I think Rena is sitting in front of her mother and Ellen in front of her father. I have some pictures of Rena as I married into that family, and she is ggrandmother to my childen.

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your grave marker and/or cemetery photos on my family website. Check it out at This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Thank you.
