Bio and Links
Bio Photo A 'family historian' for 30+ years I only recently began taking cemetery photographs as time became available...I'm more than happy to fill requests, including those for 2 areas we visit several times each year: Clarksville, TN and Decatur, Illinois. My deepest thanks to all of the incredible volunteers at Find-A-Grave who have advanced my genealogy research tremendously, but even more important, have touched my heart with their many kindnesses and personal letters. You make this site a great one, and I salute you all!

I received your request to transfer the memorials for these two people to you.They are my 4great grandparents on my paternal side and I will keep them at this time. My cousin that created these memorials transferred them to me before he died this year and I will keep them for him.

No, I'm not related. I saw her obit and when I searched for her memorial it had no information in it. You were probably working on it at the time

RE: John Radley I 1660-1744
KAREN 01 OCT 2016: Dear Ms. McSweeney, I'm writing to see if you might consider transferring John's memorial to me? I'm his 9th great-granddaughter, and I would be extremely honored if you would entrust me with it. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Enjoy your weekend! Sincerely, Karen #46867069

KATI 11 OCT 2016: Hi cousin Karen, I'm very pleased to meet you! I'm sorry for the delay in replying. I was on vacation when you sent your email (my first trip to TX!). I'm back home now. I, too, am John Radley's 9x great-granddaughter. At this time, I'll continue to care for his memorial page. You'll have first dibs though if I ever do decide to transfer it to anyone (you're the first to ask). If you ever have any data you'd like added to his memorial page, please feel free to share it with me and I'll post it with credit going to you for your work. If you'd like access to "My Paternal Family Tree" at Ancestry (where I have our Radleys posted online in a public tree), I'd be only too happy to share my tree with you. If I don't currently have your branch in my tree, I'll gladly add it.

MY RADLEY DESCENT: John Radley I m. Elizabeth Carter [9x great-grandparents]; John Radley II m. Hannah Allen [8x]; John Radley III m. Elizabeth Clark [7x]; Ichabod Radley m. Phoebe Broadwell [6x]; John Radley m. Sarah Denman [5x]; James Radley m. Eleanor Wilson [4x]; Thomas Milford Radley m. Nancy Eliza Canfield [3x]; Lucy Jane Radly m. Eli Murdock [2x]; Thomas Ira Murdock m. Laura Jane "Jennie" Schuler [great-grandparents]; Hazel Violet "Vi" Murdock m. Eugene Clare McSweeney [grandparents]; Douglas Clare McSweeney m. Doris Marion Lampton [parents]; me.

Please feel free to write me directly anytime at:

Hugs & Kisses, Love,

RE: Albert Terhune
It's nice to find another Terhune descendant! My line is from Albert (Clermont Co. OH) to his son, William B. (Rush Co. IN), then William Russell (my grandfather) to Alice my Mom. This was the first family I ever researched many years ago. I was amazed at how long the family had been in this country!

Thanks so much for your help,
Judith W.

Albert Terhune
Thank you so much for editing the memorial for Albert Terhune. I appreciate your help.

Are you related to the Terhunes? My mother was Alice Terhune, from Shelbyville, Indiana.

Best wishes,
