Bio and Links
I have been working on my genealogy since 1976 when my parents turned it over to me after 20 years of their own labors. Many of my ancestors were still alive when my parents started and much of the information came from first hand sources. I have been privileged to know many of them well, and one to the 5th generation.

My direct line families that I am working on are: Adams, Bailey, Baldwin, Ballard, Barker, Bassett, Beach, Bennett,Blundell, Carman, Clark, Cleaver, Clemson, Cochran, Crawford, Cresap, Curry/Currey, Davis, Dean, Ferris, Fisher, Gilbert, Grubb, Jowers, Knight, Lenig, Llewellen, Mansfield, McClellan, Miller, Moore, Noland, Ogle, Ott, Ortt, Rahn/Rawn, Rea, Reed, Reichanbach, Rivers, Schantz, Stahlnecker, Shivery, Suiter/Suiters, Way, Williams, Wylie.

All of the memrorials here are relatives of mine with only a few exceptions for some in-laws, whose information was discovered in my searches and a few friends.

I have been gathering information for so long that I wanted a place to put the genealogy out where other family members might find it, rather than keeping it all to myself. Find a Grave is one of the places that works well for that purpose. If there are any nearer relatives to any of the people I have in my virtual cemeteries, I will be glad to consider transfers of those memorials to them, except for my direct ancestors.

I have lots of information that I would love to share also.

You are very welcome! I really enjoy taking the photos and helping people find their ancestors and seeing where they are buried!

RE: Cochran Photo
Always happy to help. If you ever wish to visit their grave is the first row by the parking lot and the stone is extremely different from any other so easy to spot.

Brenda L. Ankeny Cessna
I see that you created the memorial for Brenda L. Ankeny Cessna. 152673944. Do you have an obituary for her? Are you related to her? I recently purchased 2 old Ankeny family photo albums from an auction that would have belonged to her grandfather John W Ankeny's sisters Grace and Katharyn. Please contact me if you can help.

RE: Irenah Hill Taylor Clark
Yes, that would be fine. I was wondering if you have information concerning the children of John & Phoebe (Clark) Wylie children. I have they had 10 children. I need info on James, Minerva and Julie. I have Sophronia, Joseph, Ezekiel, Wm, Mary Jane & Samuel all buried at Flat Run. Did any of them have a wife? I do have down that Stephen had a wife whose name was Lorinda Adams. I will take any info you have and if I can be of help to you let me know.

Hi Ed,

RE: Rachel E Suiters
Hi Ed,

Thank you for your query of Rachel E Suiters (# 92492417). The idea that Rachel had a name Riley came from my Dad, Wm Gustin, but it is undocumented. Until I have further information I am taking up your name use. Thanks for keeping me straight.

I walked and photoed every headstone yesterday and I am afraid that the person you posted as there does not have a visible Headstone. I will go back tomorrow And look again.
