Motto: Sources, sources, sources!

My philosophy is that since this is a grave site memorials should reflect information shown on grave marker. I will add other info in notes if sources are provided.

Sorry, I forgot to add that yes, this was the same Hannah Hurin Tharp. born in 1753 and died in 1841.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial#7173678
Your welcome Marjorie! Actually, that is how I found the headstone. I had some other pictures I was taking and doing some research in the Pioneer Cemetery in Lebanon and this is how I found that some of the graves had been moved.

Odd thing is, I went to school with some Tharp's! I didn't realize that the Tharp name was as old in this area as my Albertson and Yeazel family names were!!

If I can be of further help, please let me know.


Paula :-)

RE: Memorial# 111255583
Marjorie, I looked back on my notes from this cemetery and made a note that the date could be either 1853 or 1859. When I blow the photo up in Photoshop, the date is 1859. Thank goodness I now keep all my notes from the cemeteries when I'm in doubt. Good to hear from you again.

Your "no reply" edit message
You sent me a no reply edit message that Archibald Greene 1862-1937 memorial 55501983 was not a son of Archibald Greene 1828-1910 memorial 112764885.
I made the memorial 112764885 and Donna Green made the memorial 18621937. On Find A Grave you cannot add a child to a parents memorial, the parent has to be added to the child's memorial. Therefore you sent your request to the wrong person. You should have sent your request by entering an edit on memorial 18621937 to remove the wrong parent.

Marjorie, Please forgive me but I am 80 years old, still working and do not remember. It does seem I got it from the internet. Sorry.

Thank you for the correction to this memorial. The little monument was placed by the church and all I knew about him was through others who commented on this memorial. Thank you for all you do with find a grave. bren

Hi, Marj. I have contacted my Green expert and gave her your email. She said she is juggling a few projects, but will be happy to contact you when she has a break.

Memorial# 139609447 William Green
Just curious if you received any response regarding your question to gst14 of 14Jan2016 about the connection between the William's. I correspond with a Green author who lives in Ohio who shares the same DNA based conclusion of no tie.
