Milre Grimes
I have confirmed with the cemetery office that Milre Grimes (37799571) is buried at the cemetery but that neither she or Michael Grimes have a headstone. Would like a photo of the burial plot?

How does one put this memorial on an officer's Find A Grave? I found another police officer in my tree? Thank you for putting a memorial on J Hungerford of Chicago Find A Grave.

Mt Carmel Cemetery-Charles Taggs
I've filled your request for Charles Taggs. His burial site is marked. He is on the left side of the GRACE stone. There is also a Nellie Somes on the headstone. There was a memorial page for her so I added the picture there too...Mary

Mary Embree
Hi, I'm not sure if I answered you about Mary's parents.
John Embree (12 Nov 1721 in Tuckerton, Ocean, NJ - 1804 Ohio) &
Mary ? Embree (1724 Columbus, Muscogee, Georgia - ? Ohio)
were her parents. Didn't find anything else on them.
Hope this helps some.

RE: Mary Isabella (Baird) Biggs
Belle's mother, Mary McAdam, was my great, great grandfather's (Alexander McAdam's)older sister. They grew up together in Castle Douglas, in the county of Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland. There were 11 siblings that we know of, possibly a couple more that we're still to identify.

Kind regards

Dr. Hollingsworth died without a will. The lawyers had to research to find all his heirs. My grandfather was on 1 of many heirs. There are three pages of heirs listed that all received a portion.

Mary Embree
I did a quick look up on Mary & found that she was born in Orange Co., North Carolina. She is not a main line in my tree, I was following the Browns, however, I did find her parents basic info. They were John Embree, (12 Nov 1721 in Tuckerton, Ocean, NJ - 1804 Ohio) & Mary Embree (1724 Columbus, Muscogee, Georgia - d. Ohio). I thought they might be in the same area as their daughter, so tried looking them up on Find A Grave. If they were, they haven't been added to Find A Grave. I next used the "Begin New Search" & just put in the surname Embree, didn't use any dates, used U.S., Ohio, & "all counties". A huge number of Embrees came up. So, you might start some searching there.
Sorry couldn't be more help.

There seems to be room for another picture. If not, I'll remove the picture from his later years. I'd like to see a picture of him with his Navy friends.

Sarah Potts Memorial# 63487098
Thanks for your reply! If you are interested in verification/documentation, I will be happy to send you a copy of the Will of David Potts dated 16 Nov 1730 wherein he names his 10 children Thomas, John, Jonathan, Elizabeth, Stephen, Mary, Rebecca, Daniel, Nathan, Ezekiel, as well as a copy of the records at Abington Meeting listing the births of his 10 children as well as an identical list in "Our Family Ancestors" by Thomas Maxwell Potts published in 1895. I'm sure the claim of his residing in Bristol Twp, Bucks County is confused with Bristol Twp in Philadelphia County as it has been defunct since 1784 when the city of Philadelphia absorbed about 13 townships that no longer exist, i.e. Bristol, Germantown, Byberry, Moreland, Blockley, Dublin, Oxford, etc. Claudia

Sarah Potts Memorial# 63487098
I'm descended from David Potts (1670-1730) and am wondering the source of the information that indicates Sarah Potts who married James Lewis (1704-1744) was a daughter of David & Alice (Croasdale) Potts. In 25+ years of research, I have never found a daughter of theirs by the name of Sarah and this Sarah apparently carries the same birth date as that of David's daughter Rebecca. The Exeter Meeting, Berks County Quaker minutes indicate Sarah, wife of James Lewis, was the daughter of Thomas Potts. The only Thomas Potts in Berks at that time could have been David's nephew, Thomas Potts of Colebrookdale (1680-1752). He removed from Germantown - Philadelphia to the Manatawny region about 1725, became involved with the iron industry and died there in 1752. However, I have not found that he had a daughter by the name of Sarah with either of his wives, Martha Keurlis or Magdalen Robeson. That Sarah Potts was born in Bristol, Bucks County would not connect her to David Potts as he never lived in Bucks, but did live in Bristol Twp (now defunct) in Philadelphia County where he owned land; raised his family and was a member of Abington Meeting there throughout his life. Any source information regarding the memorial of Sarah (Potts) Lewis would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much.

RE: James Goin
James was my father's first cousin, and even better, he was one of the few Daddy actually liked. James and his wife came to visit my parents and my grandmother back in the mid-70's, and we were having an absolutely lovely dinner out on my parents' patio. I had not met James or Vergene before, and we were having just the nicest time. It was EXCEEDINGLY rare that I ever got to spend any time with any of my father's relatives, as we were in northern Illinois, and they were either in southern Illinois, or even further away.

The phone rang during the meal, and it was for me. I was working at that time at a group home for delinquent teenagers, a 24-7-365 residential facility, and I was subject to getting called in at any hour of the day or night when they needed more staff to take care of the kids. They were calling me in although it was my day off, and I had to drop the meal in the middle, and leave for work.

I made my apologies, and I never laid eyes on either James or Vergene again. It has been a sadness for me ever since, and my floral note to him expresses that. It is totally not a joke -- it has grieved me ever since, so when I got onto Findagrave, I started requesting photos of the markers of all of my late relatives, including James and Vergene, and that was what I wanted to tell him.

I liked them. Did you know them at all?

Malinda Wood Williams
Sorry I haven't updated the Find A Grave information. I have her having died in Columbus at the Central Ohio Psychiatric Hosp. on 28 July 1964. Whether she was buried there or brought back to the East Branch Cemetery, I don't know. She never had any children as both the 1900 and 1910 census state. I don't have the 1930 or 1940 census. Hope this helps.

Yes, I'm related but couldn't tell you which distant cousin I would be. Howard's grandfather was Joseph Williams, Jr and I descend from his older brother James, buried at the Tabor Cemetery, Morgan Co. Six of those children left Ohio and settled in northwest Missouri where a few of us still remain!

Dora Gerson McGuire
This turned out to be an unexpected mystery. I found that Stephen McGuire was divorced from his first (?) wife Stella (unknown) between 1900 and 1910. He must have then married Dora when she was between the ages of 29 & 39. But I can not find a marriage record for Dora so it is possible that her first marriage was to someone else. I will now have to go back to the family records and see what I can find. Dora is a half sister to my great grandmother Bianca Lavada Hassler Decker.

I do know. Sort of funny that the Watauga chapter is Memphis but it is the oldest chapter in TN. :-)

I too am a transplant although I did spend parts of my childhood in the south.

I am also distantly related to the Embree's :
So 5th great grandfather Jehu Coulson is the brother of Ester Coulson who married Thomas Embree. They had two sons (and a couple of girls that moved to Ohio) that were Tennessee pioneers Elihu and Elijah Embree. They lived in Jonesborough, Washington County, Tennessee.

Thanks for your note.
