|Bio and Links|
I started researching family genealogy at the young age of 9 or 10. I logged many hours at the basement of the old public library in Xenia, Ohio. When I moved to Columbus, Ohio to go to college I researched at the Ohio Historical Society. With each new year it seems that new informatioin is coming out in books and on the internet. These are great times to be a researcher. Finding "Find A Grave" is just another extention of that research. Those hours spent roaming cemeteries can be passed on to the next researchers with more detailed history and connections unthought of years ago. |
I am married to a wonderful and understanding wife Ginger. We have three children; two grown with spouses and one our late in life blessing. One of our grown children has given us our first grand child.

In my Bio:I make transfers per Find A Grave Guidelines. This would be your great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, siblings, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request.
You explained that Howard was your fathers Uncle.
I explained that I was a cousin. Thou you may be closer related then I am it still is not means for a transfer. I appreciate the photo additions and will add items you wish to the bio.
So you are connected to Elmira Gray and William Henry Tomlin? So you connect to Wm. Sherman Howard by him being the brother in law of Catherine and you are related to Catherine because she is your great aunt. Do I have that right? So you're not a blood relative?
Willim Sherman Howard nephew of Elmira Gray.
|Bernard Green||RE: Harley and Mary Carback|
Sorry, I always check for memorials so Lawrence for Mac and Stella for Maude. Anyway, I've deleted those and transferred Mary and Harley to you. Can I do anything else for you?
|Boyd McNeil||RE: Carback|
Even though Lawrence is a distant cousin (3rd cousin once removed) I'm researching his family because he was a McNeil descendant of William Love and Mary Lee McNeil.
|Boyd McNeil||RE: Lawrence Carback|
My source was at family tree at ancestry.co,
That tree's source was "History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family and Particularly of the Descendants of George and Michael Harlan Who Settled in Chester County, Pa., 1687"
I downloaded that this morning from https://ia800202.us.archive.org/31/items/historygenealogy00harl/historygenealogy00harl.pdf
I find that there is no place of birth listed in that book. On page 423 what it says for Lawrence is "McNeil b. 8, 19, 1914"
I suppose the city and town was speculation onthe part of the family tree owner. I'm changing my records to show just Ohio, as listed on his death record.

|Debra Lewis||Re:Wm. S. Howard|
He is a relative of mine can you tell me how he is related to you?
|john steele||RE: Peter Carey (sic) Carsey 75483404|
I found your request and transferred the memorial.
I'm related to some of the Carseys, but not Peter, as far as I know.
|john steele||RE: My transfer request of some time ago.|
Sure. What is your request?
