Bio and Links
Bio Photo I wrote the following few paragraphs when I first started researching my tree. They are as true today as they were back then. However, If there's one thing that has shown to be more important than anything else it's teamwork!! No one person can document all the information that needs to be made public. That's why the edit tab at the top of your profile page is so important. Please give a look at that list of entries as often as possible. As you process the entries, visiting the memorial pages and comparing them to your own work is crucial and informative. You'll find family members that you were never able to find before, because now,they've been linked. Genealogy is not fiction, its facts. Facts about every person listed. Check it out, you never know what may have been added since your last visit.

As far as genealogy is concerned, I guess I'm a "newbie" started in 2005. My mother died in April, my step father died in July, and my sister died in October all in 2005. It finally dawned on me that all my history was gone. I've found some great people out there willing to help me to put my "tree" together. I want to give back as much as I've gotten. I take pictures of headstones in cemeteries that I visit and intend to do more. I want to share those photos with anyone who wants to use them.

If I've input some of your family and they are not relatives of mine, I'll gladly transfer them to you. Please use the edit tab on the memorial page to make your suggestions and add your links. The common courtesy of asking for changes and links instead of demanding is appreciated.

I can't stress enough the importance of the edits tab. The edit tab contains a list of corrections or additions that someone else has found for established memorials. Please look at this tab and process the ones listed for you. This is one of best "team" projects for genealogy. Let's all contribute the little pieces of information that everyone else may not have. IT'S ALL IMPORTANT.

I have made a note in the Bio for this person that deals with your question. Since I did not create this memorial, I did not enter the name.

James and Isabel Barnwell's markers
The ones on Find a Grave for James b.1816 and Isabel b. 1818 are the markers I am referring to
William and Lucretia Morrison's Isabel according to census and family records was 1830. and the 1860 census has James being born abt 1822.
Also Lucretia Cleland Morrison was born 1813
I don't really believe she could have had a child
in 1818 at age 5.

This needs checked out because Wm and Lucretia were my Great grandparents. I cannot go along with this.

RE: Fred Mack Stepp, Sr Find A Grave Memorial# 146696765
I enlarged the photo and there are Johnsons on the hill above and to the right; if you look at the photo and see the large tall slender monument, I know that one belongs to A.B. Bane who died in 1904. Farther up the hill is the big tree in the middle of the cemetery.

I am not sure who all is closer to Mr. Stepp's graves, the expert in this cemetery is contributor Troy Drake

he is my 3rd cousin 1x removed and we are both on the board of directors of the PHCA. He has photographed the entire cemetery and may have records of those in the plots closer to Mr. Stepp.

Do you live in the area and want to visit the cemetery? The photo of the cleared site should lead you to the grave; if you divide the cemetery into thirds, his grave is in the middle third of the cemetery on the low side of the hill.

Thanks, Karyn
