If I change the last name spelling it would be against findagrave rules. Even if a tombstone is wrong her is the exact rule from the FAQs:
Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

What happens is a another person checking tombstones comes along and adds it again with the spelling as on the tombstone.

Susan Hudson
The other person put the wrong picture on my memorial I cannot remove his picture, but my memorial for the daughter Susan, not the Mother.

Susan Hudson
My picture and memorial are correct, someone else added that other stuff to it. Make yours the other susan.

Susan Hudson
Look at my picture. There must be more than one Susan , because this one is definitely 4/17/1860

Hi Dottie.
You have been so kind helping me with my Truett genealogy. I really appreciate all the help. If I could bother you again, do you have any idea where Richard and Eliza Moore are buried. They are the parent's of my Great Grandmother, Susan Moore Truett the wife of William Henry Truett. I have hit an absolute dead end on this. Do you know anyone who might share this info with me. Thanks again for everything. Love Barbara

William Clark
Susan S. Townsend
Hi, Colleen,
Thanks for your amazing research on the Townsends. My g-Grandmother, Margaret Adams Hyndman Clark, is interred in the Adams Masoleum in Wilmington-Brandywine Cemetery: Wilmington. Her brother-in-law, Henry Lister Townsend, is buried in an underground vault on the same plot (01/07/1903), but I'm having trouble with the date of his wife's internment, which I believe to be
February 03, 1922 (Susan Springer Adams Townsend). I've got little information about her after she left her Wayne Avenue home in Germantown (Philadelphia). Can you help out? The "Lister Castle" on Wayne is remarkable to view from an architectural standpoint.

Thanks a million!

Bill Clark

Louisa Bormann
Hello Colleen,

Let me first say thanks for your contributions. Just wanted to let you know that Louisa was not the wife of John Bormann though. She was married to Henry Bornmann. That is her Return of Death, and they did live at 2536 Emerald St. in Phila. Henry died in 1930. Louisa & Henry's son in law is the informant on his death cert. According to the death cert., Henry was also buried in Northwood, however he is does not currently have a memorial.

Thank You

Hi! I am also on but am having trouble locating your family tree. Can you help me? Hy Brittingham and Holloway families also came from Accomack County Virginia and moved through Maryland and Delaware. Perhaps we have information we could share.

Ginny Young Kellum
Colleen - it appears our families are crossed through marriages. I am a descendant of Amanda Lassiter Young whose father was Brinkley (Brinkly) Lassiter son of Jonas & Winifred (Winnifred) Parker Lassiter. Winifred's parents were Charles Parker & Ann Selby. Charles' parents were John Parker & Tabitha Truitt Parker. Tabitha's father was George Truitt according to my records. Amanda's father in law was John Young Sr. for whom Youngsville, NC was named. I am a direct descendant of the Youngs.

Tracy Reed
Wix family
Hi Colleen! I live here in Harrington Delaware. My grandfather was the last member of Whites Church, and I remember the day it was torn down. The garveyard was bigger then what is there today. A greedy farmer thought the land was more important then the graves and he threw a lot of the tombstones in the woods behind the church. My family consist of Thomas Brown the builder of the church, Wix, Anthony, Sapp, Saunders, and Haskell family. If you have any history on Clark family (1800's) in that area, we are thinking about buying their farm. Thank you!!! Tracy

RE: Postill Family
Hi - I've found nothing on Richard Postell other than what's in the family bible. It shows his death as 7 October 1851. It also provided his age in years, months and days and through that I extrapolated his year of birth as 1794. The bible doesn't state that he is James Postill's father, but he is the right age and it is James's bible.

John R. was born in Delaware and died in New Jersey. His three brothers are unaccounted for since finding the family in the 1950 Philadelphia census. They are: George Henry, Thomas M. and James Pernell. Dates of birth are: 7 Nov 1850, 30 April 1852 and 22 Dec 1853. Birth dates are from the family bible, but no places are provided. I may have found James Pernell in Shackleford, Texas in 1870, but haven't been able to find out more. The birth places he gave for both parents match my James Postill and Sarah Savin, parents to James Pernell Postill.

They have been a very elusive clan!
