Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the way combines geography with history. The places our ancestors lived are as important as their names and dates. It's hard to pass up a cemetery. Whether you know someone buried there or not, you know the people there were treasured by someone, and all of them had a story.

When I run into a brick wall on my Blanset, Naylor, Williams, Ecker, or Rosa ancestors, I am happy to chase somebody else's. It's always fascinating to unravel a mystery, and fun to share with someone who wants to know.

The Internet is a fabulous tool for researching family history, but it doesn't match the thrill of discovery in a musty courthouse vault or a shady cemetery. I'm glad that we share our finds, but I hope everyone interested in family history gets the chance to walk the ground their ancestors walked.

RE: Mary Watts at Eshcol Cemetery
Hi, again. Have added link to Sam T. Watts, civil war widow's pension image and some other stuff. Confirmed the Civil War regiments listings and other stuff; perfect fit.

RE: Mary Watts at Eshcol Cemetery
Getting closer! Have an interesting (!) timeline worked out. Seems like Sam T. Watts (#66830391; St. John's cemetery, Markelsville) is the correct one; his first wife seems to have been Susan Lupfer Watts (#66830494). Just going to confirm civil war record and let you know...

RE: Mary Watts at Eshcol Cemetery
Will do! Memorial #66830391 looks promising (name, dates, location) but not a slam-dunk quite yet. Will check/confirm the Civil War reference with my family files and pension requests.

Find A Grave Changes
******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

Janet, Elizabeth Myers was Mary Ellen Nelson Winemiller's mother. I just found the marriage notice from the Cumberland Co. Historical Society for Mary's parents, Josiah Nelson and Elizabeth Myers on Dec. 25, 1838. Carrie C.

RE: Mary E Winemiller
Hello Janet, Yes Mary has a Penn Death Certificate, date of death is 31 May 1927 in Paxtang. Her father was Josiah Nelson. Her son William who gave the info for the D.C. put her mother down as Ellen Smith, but in all the census 1850-1880 only Elizabeth Myers Nelson is with Josiah. So possible that Ellen died by 1847-8 as the next daughter Maria who has a D.C. and who was born in 1848, her mother is listed as Elizabeth Myers. Or son William got it wrong. Thanks Carrie C.

Hi Janet, Yes, I have documentation for all the edits that I suggested. I have death certificates and veterans pension information. I also have family bibles with births, full name, and death information, and church records with weddings. Please let me know what kind of documentation you need and I will be sure to get it to you.
