I wish to thank those that have contributed and
made a way to find our family and friends of our history and lineage..

My goals are to work very hard to find family history and lineage and helping others find
the history that belong to them. It is a very
important part of my life..

I was born in Leesburg,Florida in 1968.I have lived most of my life in Central Florida.

My parents married in 1967..
My father Aubrey Merritt passed away

I have two brothers, Eric lives in Wa State.
My brother Brian lives in Central Florida.

My dad side of family migrated from NC and
Ga and settled in Sumter County, Florida
first in the early 1850s and helped and
establish Sumter County Florida.

My GGGG grand father David Collins (FAG#44929871) was one of THE FIRST to
settle and establish Sumter County, Florida

My mother side of family lived and migrated
to Michigan from England to Connecticut and Vermont and Massachusetts.

I live in lake County Florida along with
my mother Janet..I am disabled and try to
always make life enjoyable as I continue
to learn family and history..

RE: Ann BORODELL Denison #14911199
Thank you so very much for your efforts on behalf of her lasting tribute...we are so fortunate to have this wonderful website! What a thrill it is to be able to see the beautifully carved stones of our ancestors? Let us remember ANN BORODELL and all of our foremothers on this Mother's Day!
Thank you again.

RE: Albert A Riley 7362461
Thank you for removing your flower. It looks much better now. But you can certainly redo the flower memory but this time please leave spaces between words (no underlines between words, ok?). And yes, he's my great grandfather. :) Cheers.

Please remove your flower memorial (by clicking on the flower directly and deleting it) because it has made the page so wide it's not nice and it looks so ugly and messy. You can certainly redo the flower memorial but without the underline characters. Thanks.

Please remove the photo from this memorial as well as he was not living in the eighteenth century either. (*see below)

Thank you for your work on Find A Grave.

Ann BORODELL Denison #14911199
Please remove the color photograph you added of two contemporary adults dressed in eighteenth century period costumes depicting the American Revolutionary War time period of the 1770's.
Ann BORODELL Denison was born in 1615 and died in 1712 at age 97 years. She lived the majority of her life in the seventeenth century, not in the eighteenth century, therefore this is a most inappropriate image to include on her Find A Grave memorial # 14911199. (*see Find A Grave Guidelines for photographs)
Ann BORODELL and George Denison are my 9th Great-Grandparents.
Thank you so very much.

Eva Coats Riley
Hi, do you have any records that will verify Eva's death date? I cannot seem to find the correct MI death certificate as well as SSDI (maybe she never had it). Or did she pass away in Florida??

Do you have any obituaries on Eva or Raymond Reed Riley? I would like to see them.

Please use my private email for this correspondence.

Thank you, Dorothy

Are you still around? Dorothy

Hi, we must be cousins. Raymond Reed Riley was my grandpa's brother, my great grand uncle. My mom remembers some of the Rileys while growing up. My Grandpa was lots younger, Raymond was about 20 years older. I have lots of info on the Rileys. I'll be happy to share with you.
Sincerely, Dorothy

Do you have a obituary for Eva, I have gone the limit without a obituary.
