David Potts & Alice Croasdale
Memorial# 63486604 and # 63486782 – David & Alice (Croasdale) Potts did not have daughter Sarah; nor was a "Sarah" mentioned in his Will dated 13 Nov 1730, Proved 26 Nov 1730, Inventoried 4 Dec 1730, Will Book E page 142. ~~ Correct translation for “8th month" is October for the birth of Alice Croasdale; prior to Sept 1752 the 1st month of the year was March, 11th and 12th were Jan and Feb of the following year, creating the system of doubling dating the years. See Julian Calendar and Penn’s “Great Laws …” Unfortunately, people are using F-A-Gravefor their factual ancestry information and these two memorials are not correct.

RE: Mendenhall - Embree family
Unfortunately, I do not have any photos of Charles and Mary. I do, however, have a few of Joseph and Roseanna, and the house they lived in. Someone, like yourself, realized we were somewhat related and sent them. If you would like those, I would be glad to email them to you. Just let me know.

Capt. Mildred McAfee Horton
Thanks for sending the edit to add her rank. Don't know why I didn't think to add it originally.

By my grandpa's generation, the family had lost the knowledge of who exactly their McAfee ancestors were, save that they were from Kentucky. Several of them believed we were connected to the Parkville McAfees (Capt. McAfee's branch), who are descendants of the Mercer Co., KY, McAfees. When I started my family history search in the early 1990's, one of the first things I did was tackle this. That family is well documented, and I did not find a link to my line, which turned out to be from Garrard Co., KY, and probably NC before that. The McDuffie/Macfie DNA project shows, however, that our lines are closely connected and so my branch and the Mercer Co. McAfees likely had a common ancestor in Northern Ireland.

I was proud to serve both on active duty and in the Navy Reserves. The experience and opportunities have affected my whole life for the better.

Mildred McAfee Horton was a pioneer, and has a place in history even though Findagrave rejected designating her as a famous person.

RE: Alma (Rawls) Parkhill

No, I am not related to either. This whole endeavor started by researching Benitha Pointon - wife of Isaac. Benitha and Mary Abagail Cook Rawls are sisters. Benitha was married first to Franklin Sodders. They had two children. Benitha is buried in the Galum Presbyterian Cemetery in Perry County, Illinois. I entered most of that cemetery and my mother was a member of that church as a little girl. She maintained her membership there even after we moved. We are in Southern Illinois for a family reunion and was taking some more photos there until I got rained out. I do my best to link people to their spouses and parents - which means I have to do research. Yours is quite the fun family to research. I have suggested for most of the Rawls children of Rev. James Sherman Rawls and Mary Abagail Cook be linked to parents and spouse. It is always exciting to find as much info as there is on this family.

Blessings and Take Care

Harvey Burke at Forest Home Cemetery
Good morning Sir/Ma'am. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Forest Home Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck! Ace

His memorial:

Forest Home is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials, and the information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Forest Home disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request.

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year I successfully completed 200 photo missions at Forest Home Cemetery that had the grave location provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year I have successfully concluded over 1,400 photo missions with over 600 already successfully completed in 2014.

Mission Failure: Impossible

re: M.B. Somes
Hello: Mr. Somes' find a grave listing was taken from the extracted information on his death certificate found in the familysearch index. I am not a relative. I checked the Chicago city directories and 1900 census, but did not find anyone matching his information. It's very possible that the surname was incorrectly interpreted by the transcriber. The actual death records are no longer available online thru the familysearch website, so I can't reference the actual record to see if this is the case. Sorry I can't be of help in this case.

RE: Douglas Mitchell Photo Request
Last October, at your request, I posted a photo of Douglas' burial site, but there was no headstone at that time. Today I was in Westridge Cemetery and checked his grave. A headstone is now in placed I have uploaded new pictures to his memorial page. Bob

I noticed in the flowers (which I copied to the bio) "Married William E House, Feb.23,1858 Chester, PA."

Does 'Chester' mean the City of Chester, Pa - which is in Delaware County- or does it mean Chester County, Pa? Either way the word 'Chester' can be misinterpreted by future generations so clarification may be helpful. Your call.

RE: Baird family of Hancock Co., IL
My Great Aunt was Agnes (Baird) McCallister who married my Grandpa's brother John. I am photographing as much of Moss Ridge as I can when I go there and likely got most of them done when I went looking for Agnes. I found dates and family links as I looked for info for her. I was hoping to find a picture of her, but no luck there yet.
