Cornelius Drake
Hello, Family Searcher!
You put in a photo request for Cornelius Drake at West Webster Cemetery (Find A Grave Memorial# 155293825). Glenn, who is fairly meticulous about his volunteer work, was unable to find it and had looked in the cemetery records as well as spoken to a grounds keeper who looked him up but was unable to find him. There is another Cornelius Drake who I located today. He is also not in the online cemetery records but does appear in them at Since the dates are askew, they are probably not one and the same. But, in the case that you find your records are slightly off, I just added a new memorial and photo for Cornelius Drake (Find A Grave Memorial# 165548924). If this definitely does not coincide with your research, perhaps you might search in another one of the area's cemeteries. I will, in any case be revisiting the cemetery again soon and will keep looking. Good luck.

George Solseth
Hi, I got a photo request for George Solseth at Roselawn Cemetery in Pueblo CO. I went to the cemetery office and they don't have him listed in their data base. I went on the Find A Grave and it looks like the same person came up in Minnesota #158560001. Maybe you should delete the George in Pueblo and put all your information on the other George Solseth. Just a suggestion. Thanks, Kay

The reason it was placed there was because someone kept insisting that he was a General, so I finally gave in.
I can promise anyone who wants information changed with have to have real documents for me to do so in the past.
I took off the title General as I do not show that in my records as well.
Have a good day.

You'd asked if I knew anything more about Sharon Lyn Small. Unfortunately, no, only that she is listed as buried at this cemetery in Bancroft, Ontario near where I live 6 months a year.

Good luck with your search!

Thank you for your suggestion concerning the Obit for G Romero.
The Obit info is exactly as it was provided by FG member 47946759:

He was rather adamant about the use of Vet.
I would be glad to transfer the memorial to YOU if you would like to manage it.
Best Regards;
Ross, NM (Vet, Korea)

Capt William Douglas McHugh Sr
I was not able to find any record indicating the title of Capt should be attached to William. Unfortunately this record was created by my wife back in 2008 and she passed away in 2010. I have removed the reference from the record.

Also, if this is your ancestor and you would like the record transferred just send me a request.

RE: Embree
It is a distant relationship - here is what I have: Merrick Embree (Stepson of 1st Cousin) & (Husband of 4th Great Aunt) 9/7/1774 - 9/3/1855

Sorry it wasn't a closer relationship

RE: Jean (Jane) Laird Parkhill
Jean Laird is my paternal 6th great-aunt.

I used a combination of documents (found via to confirm Jean's identity and her marriage to James Parkhill. Once I entered the data listed below, it was easy to match up Jane Parkhill with Jean Laird.

1.The records page from John & Agnes (Black) Laird's bible [Jean's parents] lists Jean's name/DOB.


2."Notes and Queries, Historical and Biographical, Chiefly Relating to Interior Pennsylvania. Volume III" (c)1896.-- "Black of Derry" begins on page 506 begins on page 505 lists John & Agnes's children and and spouse info.

i. Hugh, m. and had John.
ii. Elizabeth, m. Mathew McKinney.
iii. Mary, m. Andrew Biggar.
iv. James, his father devised him 221 acres of land on the Swatara.
v. John.
vi. Jean, m._______ Parkhill
vii. William
viii. Samuel>>
Hope that helps. If you send me your email I'd be happy to send you copies.

I thought it would be easier for me to take care of my family memorials, but I guess not. I have sent some Edit Requests to complete Laura Starzyk's memorial.

Thanks, but really, such a small thing, just winding my way back, through, across my family genealogy--you did the hard work!

Nancy & Wesley Bolding
Thank you for your suggestions for changes to the memorials of Nancy and Wesley Bolding. I changed the birth places because I could find some evidence for those changes. I cannot find any source for places of death for Nancy or Wesley. Can you supply those?

RE: Fretz
I found your profile. The dates were simply in a comment to the profile which was apart of a website supporting a political cause. The page is down with that address. There is another Find A Grave profile for this infant with a different middle name...FYI I have no idea which one of you is right. The other middle is Joseph.

I send dozens of corrections a day. You have not identified the profile, so I do not know which one you are talking about. I usually use death cert., birth c., soc sec, etc.

Thank you for pointing this out. I guess you are changing the HONSON to Hansen because I couldn't.

RE: True Sims
Trueman was married at least 5 times; my grandmother at least 6. Their's managed to last all of about 8 months :-) She was a Thornbrugh, one of two from that family whom Trueman married.

Thanks for making the changes. I had suggested that you change Jessie's last name to just Sims - neither her death certificate or obituary list her as "Reader Sims".
