I am researching the Ardinger, Bush, Caimi, Cole, Culatina, Harwick, Kenney, Marriner, Noel, Spangler, Stark, Stott, Taylor, Thomas, Watts, and Williams families specifically (with many other families intertwined). I am also interested in our extended lineages: Allamon, Artley, Hanisko, and Vanderau.
These families primarily are located in and around Washington and Frederick Counties, Maryland; Cole, Miller, and Moniteau Counties, Missouri; Ocean, Monmouth, and Mercer Counties, New Jersey; Adams, Clearfield, Centre, Columbia, Fayette, Franklin, Jefferson, Indiana, and Northumberland Counties, Pennsylvania; Botetourt County, Virginia; and Berkeley and Kanawha Counties, West Virginia.
If you would like to read all about these families, feel free to stop by my blog, Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers: Our Predecessors & Me.
CORRECTIONS/UPDATES TO RECORDS:
If you find any corrections to be made or relationship links to be added to memorials I have created, please let me know either through "Suggest a Correction". I will gladly make these changes in a timely manner.
TRANSFER OF MEMORIALS:
Regarding the transfer of memorials, if the person is not related to my family, I will transfer a record, provided you personally can show DIRECT lineage within four generations (your child, sibling, spouse, parent, grandparent, great-grandparent)—as per the Find A Grave guidelines—or if you have sponsored the memorial. Otherwise, I will NOT transfer the memorial. (As Find A Grave clearly states: Simply having someone in your family tree is NOT grounds for management transfer.)
Please note: When I receive multiple requests for the transfer of a memorial to whom I am not related, then I will transfer the memorial to the person with the closest relationship to the deceased (again within four generations). Please do not try to lay claim to an ancestor through an older or extended family member.
Before entering a memorial, I always verify that another record for that individual does not already exist. In turn, I ask that other contributors do not create duplicates of my memorials. Instead, if you are a direct relation within four generations, then I will transfer the memorial to you. If not, then if you have a correction or update, please let me know via "Suggest a Correction". I will make gladly make those changes/updates in a timely manner.
