|KBrandon||RE: Meyers Graveyard, Ellerton, Ohio|
I have found the WPA Records, but it only lists Michael, Mary, Elizabeth, Noah, and Lewis Myers, and Joseph Heiney and his wife Elizabeth. I ran across a mention of Henry Moyers (Meyers), who was Michael's father, but it said that he served during the Revolutionary War, died in Miami Township, Montgomery County, Ohio in 1804, and was buried in an unknown location. I would imagine that he would be buried in this cemetery. On another note, about the Meyers Graveyard...it is in very terrible condition. It has a huge pile of dirt and junk piled up in the middle of the graveyard, looks like it was bulldozed to that location. As a child, I remember seeing this graveyard from Farmersville-West Carrolton Pike, and remember the cemetery being in the middle of the field in a round shape, and I remember seeing more gravestones back then (in the 1970's). I am always sad to see a cemetery, especially an old one, in this bad of shape. I will go back to this graveyard in the near future to probe for the missing stones, and I hope that they are not under that mound of dirt.

Hi, wanted to let you know that I added 6 photos of the remaining gravestones at the Meyers (Moyers) Graveyard in Ellerton, Ohio. The graveyard is in terrible shape as nobody takes care of it. I found two broken gravestones (broken off at the base) in which the other half could not be located. If you have any questions for me, please contact me at any time.

Thanks for letting me know. Mary
|Daniel W. Stowell||John McNamar(a) Jr.|
I am preparing a brief identification for John McNamar as part of my work as editor of the Papers of Abraham Lincoln. I would like to know more about your sources for McNamar's birth date and place. The census records are all over the place, as he is 40 in 1850, 55 in 1860, and 69 in 1870. Both 1860 and 1870 list his birthplace as New York, so I am intrigued by your details about McNamar's birth. Ironic that he married the widow of John McNeal, as apparently "John McNeil" was an alias he used in his New Salem days.
|Helen Smith||RE: The Roach family of NC|
This would be before 1774 - the documents relate to his inheritance and his father died in June 1773 - a coincidence that it is all about the same time.
We know nothing further about James - his father was Timothy and his siblings were Solomon, Hester, Timothy, James (himself), Mary, Anne, Samuel and Benjamin. So each name had biblical connotations, not unusual for the times!
|Helen Smith||The Roach family of NC|
Hello to you
I have been searching for the descendants of James Roach who was known to be in Carolina at the time of his father, Timothy's death (or at least when he wrote his will)in 1773. The will leaves messuages and tenements to James in the city of Bristol, Gloucestershire, England. At the time he had 2 sons James and Benjamin who were overseas "now living in South Carolina or other parts beyond the seas" and in a separate document "James Roach of St Phillips, Charles town, North Carolina" is being represented by his brother, Solomon.
This James was baptised 26 June 1747 in Bristol. His brother Benjamin retuned from wherever and died in England, but not James. I wonder if your James Roach (1745 - 1792) might also be my James Roach. I am in touch with a distant cousin, Mark Roach who lives in New Zealand - he would be a direct y-chromosome descendant!
Best wishes and many thanks for your contributions.
|Susan Baker||RE: Ann Eliza Chilson Welton|
Sorry its not a better picture. One can barely see her name on the stone. Have a great day. Susan.
|Elizabeth ||John McNamar|
Hi there: I am descended from Susan McNamar, who must be a sister of this John McNamar since her parents were John McNamar Sr. and Lydia Welch. Do you know if this John McNamar Jr. who died in 1879 and is buried here the John McNamar who supposedly was a rival with Abraham Lincoln for the hand of Ann Rutledge? This story is covered in the book "The Shadows Rise: Abraham Lincoln and the Ann Rutledge Legend." - Elizabeth
|EG||RE: Abigail Abi Smith-Galyon|
Very interesting, thank you for letting me know!
Now I'm curious if this rumor started before or after the Galyon's made their way to Burden Kansas.
My Dad and his older brother and sister grew up visiting family in Burden as children and recall an uncle or great uncle telling the story. (Full lineage for my side is James/Sarah Galyon -> James E Galyon -> James Ray Galyon -> Don D. Galyon -> Gregory Don Galyon -> Eric Todd Galyon). As best I can tell, once Sarah Jane Hammer Galyon left Tennessee with her uncle Joel Dyer, the Kansas Galyon's had little to no contact with the original Tennessee Galyon family.
Curious if your husband descended from the Burden, Kansas Galyon's or directly from the Galyon's who stayed in Tennessee?

I should add, the SAR grave registry also states his place of death as St. Genevieve County, Missouri. My husband descends from his son, Larkin.
