Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching the Ardinger, Bush, Caimi, Cole, Culatina, Harwick, Kenney, Marriner, Noel, Spangler, Stark, Stott, Taylor, Thomas, Watts, and Williams families specifically (with many other families intertwined). I am also interested in our extended lineages: Allamon, Artley, Hanisko, and Vanderau.

These families primarily are located in and around Washington and Frederick Counties, Maryland; Cole, Miller, and Moniteau Counties, Missouri; Ocean, Monmouth, and Mercer Counties, New Jersey; Adams, Clearfield, Centre, Columbia, Fayette, Franklin, Jefferson, Indiana, and Northumberland Counties, Pennsylvania; Botetourt County, Virginia; and Berkeley and Kanawha Counties, West Virginia.

If you would like to read all about these families, feel free to stop by my blog, Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers: Our Predecessors & Me.


If you find any corrections to be made or relationship links to be added to memorials I have created, please let me know either through "Suggest a Correction". I will gladly make these changes in a timely manner.

Regarding the transfer of memorials, if the person is not related to my family, I will transfer a record, provided you personally can show DIRECT lineage within four generations (your child, sibling, spouse, parent, grandparent, great-grandparent)—as per the Find A Grave guidelines—or if you have sponsored the memorial. Otherwise, I will NOT transfer the memorial. (As Find A Grave clearly states: Simply having someone in your family tree is NOT grounds for management transfer.)

Please note: When I receive multiple requests for the transfer of a memorial to whom I am not related, then I will transfer the memorial to the person with the closest relationship to the deceased (again within four generations). Please do not try to lay claim to an ancestor through an older or extended family member.

Before entering a memorial, I always verify that another record for that individual does not already exist. In turn, I ask that other contributors do not create duplicates of my memorials. Instead, if you are a direct relation within four generations, then I will transfer the memorial to you. If not, then if you have a correction or update, please let me know via "Suggest a Correction". I will make gladly make those changes/updates in a timely manner.

For some reason, Findagrave is throwing a hissy fit with its I-am-not-a-robot program and will not let me transmit suggestions to you. Here they are.

His mother's maiden name was Swords, his wife Virginia Jane's maiden name was Mell, and son George's birth date is 01/02/71.

# 25101135 James Benjamin Stark
Hi, I've been searching around in the Stark line from SC (Jeremiah and Thomas) and have ended up here with James Benjamin. I noticed that you had created this memorial and have his birth date as 17 Nov 1775, and yet I keep finding other records popping up in that have it as 26 Nov 1775. Isee that there is no tombstone or headstone for him, nor for his wife Rebecca Geary Stark. So wondered where this 17 Nov date came from?? It doesn't seem to show up elsewhere. Just curious.
Thanks for any info.

Looking for more info on John Swartz
John Swartz #22555790 according to your memorial, died in 1853, buried in Donally Mills, Perry Co, PA. Just curious where you got this info, if you are family, if you ever had a photo for the headstone. I am researching this fella for a woman's application to DAR and I am coming up with zip. Any help you have (sourced) for your info would certainly be appreciated.

Berniece Wyss
Thank you for adding her obituary. I appreciate you doing that; so many people will not. I thought her life to be quite interesting....she's not a relative, but attended school in Fortuna, MO, where I did at one time too. Thanks again.

Thank You!
KTC - thank you for transferring my Great Grandparents to me, I sincerely appreciate it. I noticed that you are also researching the Williams family. I hope you don't mind if I ask which Williams line you are researching? I, too, have some Williams relatives.

KTC - My name is Tammy Wilson (48525643) and I would like to have my Great
grandparents transferred to me if possible. They are Verrena A. Shepherd Binkley (20502589) and James Binkley (20502587). They are buried in Enloe Cemetery in Moniteau County near Russellville, MO. My grandmother was their youngest daughter, Rosa May Binkley Jackson. Thank you in advance for considering my request.

Thank you so very much, KTC, for the transfer of Adam and Margaret Elizabeth Rice pages. Hadn't really meant to ask for transfer, just "support" of $5 to website to remove ads and add more photos, but thanks for the generosity ever so much! My brothers will be thrilled!
A have a photograph of the new Bull Hill Cemetery entrance, but just have to find it!
