You inquired whether I was related to John Alexander Graves. I am related to 3 generations of people with the name, John Alexander Graves. Richard Stanford Graves, father of the eldest John Alexander was my 3rd Great-Grand Uncle. Which one are you referring to?

Thank you for the information on Mary's parents. Next time please use the edit button to add this kind of information. It will save time and be less likely to cause mistakes.
My great aunt made the memorial and it was transferred to me when she passed away. I transferred Brenda's memorial to you. I would rather one of her friends have it as I didn't know her.

Being that he died in Philadelphia, the Laurel Hill cemetery reference could be for the Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia and not Bentley Creek, PA

|Texas Czech||Machacek - Lesikar correction|
Barbara can you please make a few corrections.
Peter Machacek 1878 - 1940 was married to Annie Lesikar 12/1/1882 Rockdale, TX - 1/24/1978 Rosebud, TX. You presently have him listed as married to Annie's sister Hermina (Minnie) Lesikar 1884 - 1966. Herminia was married to Emil Doskocil (1884-1967) who already has a spot at findagrave.
Annie and Hermina are both daughters of Joe Lesikar (1854-1912) and Annie (Skrla) Lesikar ( 1862-1956) who are already on findagrave too.
I can give you complete birthdates, deathdates, and burial locations when you are ready for them.
Thanks so much for fixing this for my cousins.
|Phillip Maine||Family ties|
My wife Bennie Bailey Maine's Bailey family goes back to Joseph Bailey who immigrated to Philadelphia in 1774 then supplied, fought for and supplied materials for the Revolution. She is also connected to the PA Baileys through her mothers Rickett family to Joel who came to Marlborough, Chester County, Pennsylvania, in the 1680s .
I am connected to the Washburn family through Sarah who married John Partch through Ruben, Asa, Seth, Joseph, Joseph, and John.
My fifth grandmother was Thankful Brown who married Jeremiah Main Jr, North Stonington, CT. She died while living at her second son's house in Madison county, NY. Her cemetery was thought lost to a greedy farmer, but it turned out that Madison county moved the road 1/2 mile in the 1830s by taking out a curve. A former Ragk volunteer took the time to dig up road surveys, and wondered into brush and found her memorial and the cemetery still existed for which I will owe her forever.
