Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE! DO NOT UPLOAD ANY OF MY PHOTOS WITHOUT EXPRESS PERMISSION. I'm pretty easy to get along with and will be happy to transfer anything within the guidelines. But to take photos from my memorials that are copyright protected (even though they may not be watermarked as such - check the copyright laws for verification) is clearly not appropriate and, technically illegal. I'm not saying I'll send a team of lawyers after you, I'm just asking for a small degree of common courtesy. Just ask! All I want is attribution for the work I've done. I only have about 1,800 in my name, but I've uploaded over 20,000 as a partner/volunteer of another Find A Grave contributor, John O'Connor, who was entirely welcome to my work....he asked! As a matter of fact, many of the photos that I took (and therefore hold the copyright) were uploaded under John's account.

Contact me anytime with corrections, links, transfers (according to policy) or adding information. I will respond as quickly as is reasonable.

A quick note: I'm often asked a question about hyperlinks. To add an internal link within a biography, you would need to type
< a href="">Name< /a>
(I put this here because I use it frequently and am tired of digging for it in the FAQ.)

RE: Pease Family
Thanks for the offer, they are relatives of mine, but distant. I am tracking down all my cousins that I can, as well as my ancestors. So far I have about 60766 people in the tree. I'm adding and correcting sites as I go along, only after verifying any information I give is correct. Right now I'm working on writing up unit histories for each Pease that served in the civil war, which I'm in my second year, after that is done I'll go back in to Mexican-American, War of 1812 etc.

I appreciate your wishing to past on these sites to me, sure I take them over. Not sure how you transfer them to me.

John Sackett Memorial #37604384
Hello Dave,
I am researching John Sackett and I see your Find A Grave Memorial lists his death as 18 October, 1719. Would you be able to tell me the source for that date? North America, Family Histories, 1500-2000 and Family Data Collection list the date of 8 October, 1719. I would appreciate being able to clear up this confusion of dates.

Thank you for your help in this matter.

RE: Abiah Bliss Hosmer Memorial# 41218249
Abiah and I are fourth cousins 6 times removed, as we are both descendants of Thomas Bliss, born before 1595 in England. He is Abiah's third great grandfather and my ninth.

If you would like to know more about Abiah's ancestors, they may be found here:

You can click on each person in her family tree. Some of their biographies are more fleshed out than other. I just happened to be working on hers and thought that I would share what I had found.

Happy hunting! jan

RE: James H Parker
no, not related. i traced her thru census records in springfield. her age varied by a couple of yrs, but i've found the irish often weren't too accurate in that dept. unfortunately, her ch were b. and her husb d., all between the 1855 and the 1865 censuses, so there is no record of them all tog. her dau annie dies 1868 and s.geo is w/ her 1865 thru 1880 census, then he too dies! the fa is not named on the 2 later death records but that he was b. in documented.and the 1900 cen says she had 3 ch, 0 alive. her death records give a husband thomas but she is wid in census from 1865 on.
so i'll be interested in whether you come to the same conclusions i did.
as for the welch 1865 she is w/her 2 ch and a peter welch that i assume is a bro. peter is also the fa name she gave at marr. cheryl

RE: James H Parker
hi- i did alot of tracing of this family and found the one i believe to be correct in st michael's cem, died 1906. her marriage record (1854)gives her name as welch, not walsh. walsh was on death record by a neighbor which i don't think is as accurate as the name she gave at marr. she had 3 ch, all died before her: geo 1855, annie 1859 and this baby. annie may be the one in springfield cem but there are other possibilities for that person.
don't find one for geo. cheryl
