Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 2004, I became an early retiree, retiring from an aerospace corporation in the southwest and now live in the midwest. I love spending quality time with my family, genealogy, flower gardening, and traveling.

I'm a wife and the mother of two children, a daughter and a son, and three grandchildren. I also have a really great sister and brother-in-law.

I have been researching my family history for over 30 years and also enjoy corresponding with other researchers and helping them with their research, if I can. It's a way for me to give back, for all the people who have helped me through the years.

With the advent of the world wide web, I have been able to meet a lot of cousins from every branch of the family. It's sure been interesting as well as a lot of fun.

Find A Grave has given all of us a way to establish a living memorial for our loved's a really great thing...linking families together forever.

I got the death certificate and it says he is
buried in Plain View so do you want to move
him to the correct cemetery and delete the one in
Greenwood? I would be glad to do this for you
and put your name as owner of the site but you have to be the one to delete it from greenwood
Just let me know what you want to do
also do you want a copy of the death certificate?
I can email it to you

Thank you for your work on Find A Grave. I would be interested in your direction to the documentation that proves that Isaac Cantrell married a Telitha Cloud. I have been involved in Cantrell genealogy for 10+ years and have never found or knew anyone who has found the documentation
proving this fact.

I have 2 books of cemetery names for Greenwood and Dr. Easley is not listed in either.
His obit says he was buried in Plain View Ill
I tried a couple of funeral homes to see if they might only have one cemetery but plain view doesnt have a cemetery so he could be in ? 5 different cemeteries. He is listed in the death records for Illinois and you can order a death certificate for a dollar I just called and they are closed until tuesday I will call on Tuesday but if you have a copy of his death certificate
let me know is he an ancestor
I will let you know if I find anything out

Please tell me how you determined Charles L Williams was Shadrack's father, because I have this Shadrack as brother to my Isaac and either I have the wrong Shadrack or Charles is not correct. Any info would be appreciated. Karen

RE: Rev. Isaac Cantrell
No problem. I understand. The issue is straightened out. I transferred management to one of your Cantrells.
God bless you, Sally

Rev Isaac Cantrell

First, thank you for the correction.

Second, I was afraid that you were being badgered by well meaning people who are just misinformed. It is hard to stand up to such pressure and I am happy to take the heat. I take so much heat regarding my project identifying the actual participants of the Battle of King's Mountain that anything else is child's play.

I received the message below purporting to be documentation of the "Thornton". It actually documents that his birth name was Isaac Cantrell.

This case illustrates the care we must give to the information posted online and the way that information evolved. The LDS files are so convoluted. At one time, they were considered infallible. Researchers know, however, that those records are compiled by descendants who may or may not have conducted in-depth research. The same is try of NFS legacy. It is a prime example of GIGO: garbage in - garbage out.

Read the US and International Marriage Records referenced below: it states clearly his birth name: Isaac Cantrell.

Again, thank you for the correction. With the correction, you have added historical accuracy for his legions of descendants and we greatly appreciate your work on Find A Grave.

If I have any documentation on anything that you might need, just let me know and I will send it forthwith.

Vonnie Cantrell

Sarah Hester Botkin - Memorial# 97286932
G’day Joyce,

This memorial relates to Sarah Hester Botkin, the _first_ wife of George Botkin.

The three images that accompany the memorial, however, are images of the headstone of the _second_ wife of George Botkin. She was also named Sarah and was at the time of their marriage a widow, as indicated in the Clark Co. Ohio records - “Sarah Turk (Mrs.)”.

The date of death of Sarah (Hester) Botkin was 13 Apr 1831; the date of Mrs. Sarah Turk’s marriage to George (Bodkin) Botkin was 22 Nov 1832; the year of death of Sarah (Turk) Botkin was 1850 (from the headstone images - I can’t decipher the month).

George Botkin fathered just one child by his second wife, a daughter named Isabel Jane (1834 - 1914). I don’t know what Sarah Turk’s maiden name was, what her first husband’s name was (but perhaps Thomas), or what became of the children of her first marriage.
