RE: Fred Richard Paisley
Thanks for the reply. I think I'll have some luck over time with a few other research options. A few years ago, I caught an ad in the local newspaper regarding a man who passed away and the VA was trying to find any member of his family. Evidently, the home he was in didn't have any one at all on record. However, I did find them for them. I had little to go on with that search, too. It may seem silly to some but I like to "return" pictures and original docs I find in frames; for some that may be the only tangible memorabilia they have for a family member. Again, thanks for replying. Keep up the GREAT work! Your posts are wonderful.

Are you a member of the Paisley Family?

I've purchased an antique photo for the frame at an antique store in Forest City, NC. On the back mat of this baby's picture is some information but not enough for me to pinpoint a city. The photo's photographer's mat reads Smiths, Dayton, Ohio. I don't know if that means the pic was taken in Ohio or processed there and mailed off as there is a partial address on the back. The photo is in pristine condition and I'd like very much to send it to the proper Paisley family member. If you are a member of this family, I'll be happy to email you the info and email the pic for verification.

RE: re: Daniel Starr
I would prefer you transfer control to my son, but do not want to give his email address in a public messsage. I will ask him to write to you.

Thank you, Elizabeth

Daniel Starr
Daniel Starr was the son of Abner Starr. I have the H.F. Starr Annie E. Young family Bible and information back to Hessen, Germany. Would be pleased to fill in gaps. Abner was married to Mary "Polly" Weitzel. Daniel was married to Sarah Minervah "Sally" Lowe. (I have Daniel's engraved death announcement that I was told was carried from house to house on a silver tray.) Why are you interested in the Starrs? My father is the last of his branch of the family with the family name. He had no brothers or sons.

Hi David,
I noticed that you added the McAdoo line to find a grave. I was wondering if you where connected to them?
If so can we talk?

RE: re: Montie Williams McIntosh
Thank you, Mr. Oxford! In research that I did today, my memory was jogged, and I recalled more sisters, and a brother, too. There is actually a book written on those Williamses, and you could also refer to At any rate, there was Evander, Montie, Mintie (not twins!), Maggie Mae, Fuller, Mary Ella, and a toddler who died at the age of 2. Big family--wow!

Thank you again,

RE: re: My Earlier on B. Moore Photo
NP David. Funny that you relate to my past sort of. I remember vividly spending an evening in a laundromat one night in the early 70's, must have been January or February, feeding dimes in the gas dryer to keep the place warm while my sneakers tumbled around. A buddy of mine and I had decided one day to hitchhike from Des Moines, Iowa to the French lick in Indiana to see a friend of ours. On the way back we got a ride from a man who took us to a McDonalds in Terra Haute and gave us ten bucks to buy us a meal. The next day another ride (still in Indiana) asked I f we minded a fast ride. NP I said as he slammed the pedal to the floor. We were flying!!!!!!!!!!!! We moved to NC about three years ago from Miami. I think we're going back.

RE: re: Warner Completions
Also, if you would like some help in tracking down other data here in this part of Oregon, I might be able to help -- I'm pretty familiar with the available resources here.

RE: re: Warner Completions
I'm glad I was able to help!

If you figure out hoe Lewis Warner is connected, please let me know. Also, if you locate a burial for Jabez Warner, I'd love to link Elizabeth to him, or that could also be done from the other end.

Have a great week!

RE: re: Warner Requests
I have uploaded photos for those that I had; the other ones that you have requested were not found on my trip to the cemetery in 2012. The fact that Harvey & Wilbur were in the WPA listing indicates that they had gravestones at that time, although the cemetery has been vandalized in addition to being severely neglected -- meaning that their gravestones may no longer even be there.

It would take a crew of a dozen or more working for a couple of weeks to refurbish the cemetery, and there is no way that the rancher would allow that. So for now, "It is what it is. . . ."

RE: re: Elizabeth Gilpin Warner

There is one other thing I can do, if you want me to. I was able to visit this small abandoned cemetery about three years ago, with great difficulty. The rancher whose property surrounds the cemetery is very protective concerning his property, and therefore does not want people "tromping around" his place. I was able to locate and photograph a few gravestones mostly hidden among the waist-high periwinkle which covers the entire cemetery; among these were several Warners & Beesons (Selden Warner's daughter Hulda married Edwin/Edward Beeson). Your GGG Grandmother's is among the ones I have a photo of. I have not uploaded the photos because the rancher insisted that I not upload them unless a relative specifically requested them. (In his mind, if the photos were posted, people would be more likely to desire to "tromp around" on his property.) If you request them, I can post them.

Specifically, I have photos of the gravestones for Elizabeth (Gilpin) Warner, Selden Warner & his wife Evarilla, their daughter Hulda (Warner) Beeson, Lewis A Warner (is he Selden's brother?) and his wife Mahala, as well as Nathan Beeson (Hulda Warner's father-in-law?) and his son Charlie Beeson. I'm guessing that all of these are your (extended) relatives, so your request would free me to post the photos.

In going over these, I see that Nathan Beeson is not currently listed in this cemetery, so I will fix that omission momentarily.

Thanks for your feedback, and have a wonderful evening!

Elizabeth Warner memorial
I received a notice that you had sponsored her memorial. If you would like, I can transfer management of it to you -- in fact, I'd be happy to transfer the entire family (Selden & his family) to you.
