When I first started looking for family a number of years ago now; I had no idea who my family was or where they came from other then Kentucky. I told people when they asked that were were just American Mutts. What a group of mutts they turned out to be. Most of my ancestors were here well before the American Revolution. While their name's rarely appear in the history books, they were part of the founders that helped shape the USA that we live in today. Or maybe they are in some of the history books, if you know where to look.
Much of my research is from the kindness of others. I try to list my sources and give credit where it is due. If I miss someone, please let me know and I will give you credit.
Many of our ancestors graves have been lost over time and many the old records are now gone. I try and include to the best of my ability where our family is likely to be buried and who they are related to.
Mistakes can and do happen. For that reason, I am always open for helpful corrections, additional information and transfer requests. Please use the "Edit" tab then "Suggest a Correction" tab on the memorial pages or contact me directly.
As for me; I was born in Eastern Washington State, lived in Arizona for a number of years and now reside in Western Montana.
I am a descendant of Peter and Dority Hart (ca 1740) Grayson CO VA/Ashe CO NC, Peter Winne that arrived in Albany NY from Holland about 1650, several Winthrope Fleet members . Last but not least a number of Palintine Germans, English Scotts and Irish with far too many names to list here.
I ask a simple request of other members. Please do not use your Bio to post Find A Grave guidelines that are already covered on this site under "Help with Find A Grave" FAQs. Nobody posts rules, regulations and terms of service for a web site on a grave biography. Why do so on your own bio? A bio is supposed to be about a person, not about rules and guidelines.
As for any photos I have posted. Please feel free to use them as you like. If you can somehow make money from them, good luck to you. If you do, just buy me a beer, if we ever meet in person and we will call it even.
I do not own any headstones that I have taken photos of any more then I own any sunsets that a thousand people may have taken a photo of.
Thank you to Find A Grave for letting me post family information and all of the hard work posted by it's members. No one person can do all of this by themselves. Kindness to others is is own reward.
