Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you to those who take pictures and contributed. I really appreciate those who can and do. It is so helpful to make sure the research we do is actually correct.

Finding their final resting place can often be a great source of information. It's also really helpful to know if that cemetery is active and has office, email address and phone number. I've recently come across one, McCargo, Fannin, Texas; anyone know or hear of it. I even Googled it w/o results.

I have just added my step "Dad", Neil Kelly, as he passed 05 March 2008. Strangely, by "Father" also passed just three weeks prior, isn't that some strange celestial joke? We'll see... they were 74 and 75. Just coming up on their five year anniversaries today and next month. This year makes twelve (12th) for my brother Paul.

Thank you to everyone who visits my friends and family as it brings gladness to my heart and believe it to be a form of prayer to help their souls advance. They say none of us leave this life without experiencing death, so I find it's an important social issue. Different cultures sometimes have different rites, rituals and practices.

Of course, should you find any corrections needed please send them to me with sources included so that I know I am adding correct information for all future seekers.

Thank You and Bless you all for gracefully continuing this important work. We are making history here for future generations.

Let's roll in 2014. Be patient with one another!

RE: Help with transcription # 48059190
I no longer have the photo, but stopped by the cemetery on my way home from church to check for you. The stone on Anna's page is hers. In the blackened area at the top is her name, Wife of Sylvanus Cole, and her date of death and age. The remainder of Slyvanus' broken stone just has "Sylvanus Cole" on it.
However, the cemetery reading done by Jean C. and Wendell C. Tombaugh in 1991 has this note in it:
Row 15
(20 steps)
SHERIDEN, Mary, wife of P., d. May 16?, 1871, ae 60y
COLE, Sylvanus, d. --- 18, 1851
[NOTE: Broken stone, partly buried. Manitou Chapter DAR, Genealogical Survey, Fulton Co
Ind Cemeteries, 1935, shows d.d. Oct 18, 1851, ae 54y.]
COLE, Anna, wife of Sylvanus, d. Jan 11, 1849, ae 46y-7m
TOWN, James W., son of E. & R., d. Sep 26, 1847, ae 5m-26d

I hope this is helpful.

RE: Harrison Cole 1816 1890
It's faint on the photo but the age a death is given as 73y 2m 10d. I've added it to the memorial.

Mary Viglia Moyer - Teano
Hello there
I am going through myself searches for my relatives that from Italy moved to the States at the end of 1800
I know Frank A Viglia (my Great Grandfather brother) had a daughter called Mary Viglia who married Frank Theodore Moyer
I understand Mary Viglia had a son Frank Moyer and an adopted daughter Beverly June
Are we somehow connected?
Thanks for your feedbacks

RE: Cornelison and Dockerty
I do not have any Dockerty photos. The few I have is of Millie and Ernie, and I don't have many of those. Sorry! I know how important photos are to family.
Thanks for your inquiry.

Re: Frances Dockerty
You sent a spousal link to Frances Dockerty, #137488505. The spouse was William Archie Dockerty, #30378739. Since he was 27 years younger than Frances, I wonder if you meant to link him as a son instead???

RE: Tony Teano - Moyer, Viglia
Clara is also in my Ancestry tree. My tree is "The Storrs, Oakley & Lane Families" (Ancestry ID: 'lkf46'). I have Clara's page fairly complete and documented, will all her children from both marriages researched also. I also have a news article about the birth of her twins posted, if you want to check it out.

RE: Tony Teano - Moyer, Viglia

I went home to Utah (Price) this past week for the first time in 12 years (just got back late last night). I took pictures of the Greek church, and as it is right across the street from Clara & Tony's house, I took a couple of pictures of their house. I'll send you the pictures if you want to get me your email address. If you're like me and don't want to post your email in this type of public comment, you can just use the Edit function on any of my memorials, and use the "•Suggest any other correction or addition" tab, to send me your email. Their house still looks the same on the outside at least, as it has all my life. Clara & Tony were both very sweet people.
