Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been actively researching family history for more than 9 years and have build a family tree with 4,500+ names. Family members have contributed over 5,000 pictures to support this effort. You may use the grave site photos on your own private genealogy website as long as they are accurately portrayed and you provide the appropriate credit. Personal or family photos may be used only with permission.

If you find an error please let me know and I'll correct it.

Enjoy our work in progress ... and thanks to Find-A-Grave for providing this resource, and the many "genealogy hunters" who find and memorialize our ancestors!

Stevenson Cemetery
Hi Tom,

I'm curious. I noticed that a large number of headstone photos at the Stevenson Cemetery were deleted a few years ago by findagrave. It had something to do with a disgruntled photographer. Have you been re-photographing these? I have had a change of surname since I began on findagrave. Anyway, I'm thrilled you're still graving.

RE: Robert B. Stevenson
Thanks Tom

I dont know which middle initial is accurate. I am studying the cemeteries there attempting to figure out where I fit in. I noticed the duplicate names, age and death dates while studying the graves. Thanks again

William & Susan Lackey
Hi, Tom; As far as I know, I am not related to this Susan and William. Susan Robison Lackey, wife of Henry Abner Lackey, is my great-grandmother. I just search for obits to fill in information for records so families can be together.

John McGranahan #146447607

I was wondering what the documentation is for John McGranahan's Revolutionary War Service. I am a descendant and am interested in documenting my pedigree for Daughters of the American Revolution.

RE: Carthenia Stright
Carthenia Allevia (born 29 Aug 1853), Eva Catherine (born 15 June 1856) and Isabel May (12 May 1858) were the daughters of Elisha Stright /Strite and Sarah Free Stright.

Elisha was born 1823 and died 19 May 1859.
Sarah was born 1833 and died 14 Jan 1860 of consumption. Sarah was the daughter of Jacob Free. His will is dated Oct 9, 1871. He wills "Carsena" Stright fifty dollars. Carthenia was domiciled with her grandfather, Jacob and his wife Catherine Free.

Isabel May Stright (@ 2 years old) was sent to live with her widowed Grandmother, Isabella Borland Stright on 22 Aug 1859. She was living there in the 1860 census. Isabella Stright (grandmother) died 19 Sept 1861. It is not known what became of Isabel.

Eva was aged four when when the 1860 census was taken for Deer Creek Twp., Mercer County. Living with her father's uncle, Amzi Stright. Amzi died on 1 January 1862, and his wife Mary died in 1868.
In the 1870 census we find Eva living in Wesley, Irwin Twp., Venango Co., PA, with John and Margaret (Axtell) Davidson. Margaret was her father's first cousin.

Much of this information came from the Orphan's Court records for Mercer Co., PA courthouse No 35, dated Jan 1860, 13 Mar 1860 and 4 April 1860.

It appears that Carthenia's son was mistaken. She may not have known who her father was. It took decades of research by my Aunt Mildred to uncover the facts above.

Elfreda Jane Armour
Hi Tom...hope all is well. I'm looking at the memorial for Elfreda Jane Armour Allen 1304158. It states she was the daughter of Steven Cummings and Hannah Armour. I have a PA Certificate of Death that shows her father as David Armour and her mother as Davison with no first name. The 1870 census shows Steven and Hannah Cummings and also lists Elfreda (Elfie) Armour and lists a Thomas Armour age 28. The 1880 census lists Hannah Cummings, widowed, and Elfreda (Elcie) Armour as her niece. I usually don't get this far down in the weeds with non-blood spouses but this one has me confused...any insight? I'm headed to Columbiana next month to help my sister Bonnie (Harry's niece) sort through some pictures and get her up and running on Ancestry...looking forward to it! Chuck

Mary Havlin #146871544
Mary A. Williams married Redrick Monroe Havlin in 1873. I found them in the 1900 Census in Ashtabula Co., Ohio as R. M. and M. A. Havland. I found them in the 1920 Census: as R. Monroe Havlin and Mary A. in East Fallowfield, Crawford, Pennsylvania. Mary was born in 16 Jul 1855 or 1851 in Crawford Co., Pennsylvania to John and Margaret H. (Bortner) Williams. The 1900 Census that they had 3 of 4 children living. Glenn Havlin (1874-1896) would be the one not alive in 1900. I have two of the three living: Claude M. Havlin and Clarence Leed Havlin born 19 Jul 1886 and died 29 May 1973. Claude was alive in the 1920 census and was born Dec 1884.

Jackie Rogers, I am a 4th cousin 2X removed from Mary Williams Havlin.

John and Georgia Graham
Thank you for making me aware of their presence in the cemetery. I have finally added them to the memorials and made a photo request. I was going through my list and realized I had not completed this item.
