|Mark Schneider||RE: Mary Gahagen Travis|
I am not sure how this message got to you via Find a Grave but What I was referencing was a family tree of yours that showed Mary Gahangan who was married to a William Travis Jr (William G Travis 1774-1840)that was actually married to William Travis Sr (William A Travis 1745-188).
Can you check this info in your trees? I have Mary being born in 1742.
I don't wish to make my email public by posting this.
|Susan Moskaly||RE: Thomas Parsons, Clarion County, PA|
Thanks for your speedy reply and willingness to work with me! I am new to FindAGrave and have not yet been responsible for any entries yet (just suggested some edits), but I am willing to do that. I am waiting to hear back from another member who also appears to have gotten the two Thomas Parsons' mixed up. To really get this fixed I will need her cooperation also.
I will get back to you after I hear back from the other member.

On Ancestry.com, I've been doing a lot of work recording my Parsons ancestors on my tree. I've learned that there were TWO Thomas Parsons (first cousins) who both lived in Clarion County around the same time. By carefully studying census records and other supporting documents available on Ancestry, I've come to the conclusion that when you added information to FindAGrave about Thomas Parsons (#110148884), you input information for the wrong Thomas Parsons.
Thomas Parsons (#110148884), my 3rd-great grandfather, lived from 1802 to the mid-1880s, and married Margaret Meredith. I am pretty sure his father was John Parsons.
The other Thomas Parsons (#113715803) was born around 1808 and died around 1877. His father was David Parsons (about 1775-1869). His wife was Jane Craig Sayers (#110148889) and his son was David Henry Parsons (#142917682).
Both of the Thomas Parsons apparently lived in Limestone Township, Clarion County, PA.
Would you be willing to edit your posts to agree with my suggestions? If you would like to peruse my tree on Ancestry to see my sources, let me know.

I tried to enhance for memorial and corrected the dates, but if I am incorrect, please let me know and I will be happy to make an edit. Thank you for submitting your correction.
Hello, I'm hoping you can help me. My grandfather was born in Bellevue, PA in 1917. On his mother's death bed, she told him that his biological father was a family friend by the name McGaughey. I have pinpointed a man named Harry Alexander McGaughey. I have done my DNA and match many of the families that I have found him to be related to. Are you related to this man? Was he the son of Elizabeth A Mcgaughey? Thank you
|LostGeneration||RE: Birthplace of Mary Randolph Chandler|
Hi David - that piece of information was sent to me by Julie Grabill Rasmussen, who does a lot of research in that area. It came from the Audubon County Death Record, Book 2, page 35: "Father was Richard J. Chandler, born New Jersey; Mother was Mary Randolph, born in West Virginia; Surviving Spouse was Lydia Chandler. Lydia died 6 Jan 1945 in Carroll, IA."
Hope that helps! LG
|Bonnie Parks||RE: Chandler|
OK. I know those old obits are usually cut out and no reference is given to the newspaper. I just thought I would check with you. I found a lot of obits in the Derrick. I'm glad Pa is finally getting more info online.
I added the obit....thanks! Do you happen to know the source of the newspaper?
|Jaqi ||RE: George Basore|
I deleted mine. Not sure how I missed that, I usually try to catch that before adding. Thanks!

|GalaxyQuest1||RE: Elizabeth Gray Travis|
I got it from this site:
Children of Mary and William TRAVERS are:
i. John TRAVIS was born 10 NOV 1766, and died 23 APR 1829 in Franklin Twp,Huntingdon,Pennsylvania. He married Elizabeth GREY. She was born 1780, and died 28 JAN 1856.
"No," I wish I knew where William Travers and Mary (Unknown) were buried.
Jane Travis m. Joseph Wadding, and George Travis m. Margaret Johnson Timblin, and William Travis b. 10-27-1774, and others are siblings to John Travis.
The Wadding/Shepherd/Bell line out of IA is my husband's line.
