John Samples, Nancy Trimble Samples

My name is Chad Samples, and I am fairly certain that John and Nancy Trimble were my great-great-great-grandparents via their son Amos (Upsher County, WV). I wanted to thank you for maintaining their memorials, and would appreciate any help you can give in connecting me to some of their other defendants. My E-mail address is

Thank you again!

The Irish Lady
Crown Hill Cemetery- Elmer A Knatcal
Many thanks for getting Elmer's headstone onto Find A Grave. It's a great picture and it sure helps in verifying family info.

I wonder if you'd allow me to use the pic in the family research, with credit of course?

Mary Elizabeth Mishler
The memorial you have for this woman is incorrect. Please remove from the Freeman Cemetery. This is my great grandmother and the picture you have used is the picture I took of the headstone in the Rosebank Cemetery in Mulberry, KS. She and her husband are buried in the same cemetery as many of their children. Please make the corrections..

Frances "Fannie" Harrell # 38025432
I am trying to track down the first wife of George T Eldridge (1859-1931) from Henry, KY. A Fannie Harrell was the mother of a son Simon Aldridge (1883-1964) and twins who died in childbirth. I'm hoping you may have more information on this memorial; I can certainly provide more information.

Joyce B.
Isaac Spencer Ellis, Sr.
I believe the name of the memorial you have created for Isaac Spencer Ellis, Sr. (married to Elizabeth McCord Spencer) is incorrectly named. I believe this should be a memorial to Isaac Ellis, (no middle name), son of Benjamin Ellis.
Isaac Spencer Ellis, Sr., I believe would be their son (married to Martha Shipley) and having his mother's maiden name as his middle name.
In addition, I also have a land grant deeded to Isaac Spencer Ellis, SR (and James Ellis)dated December 15, 1854, well after the death of Isaac Ellis (NMN).
Isaac Spencer Ellis, Jr. was married to Susan Howard.
Isaac Spencer Ellis, III, was married to Nancy Diana DeWitt
Thomas Spencer Ellis, married to Mattie Ellen Smith was my grandfather.
I know it is very confusing when names continued through multiple generations. Thank you for considering making this correction.

John E. Romine
I was wondering if you could link John E. Romine with Mary E. Romine. They were husband and wife and were my great grandparents. Paul Edgar Weldin is their grandson. Also my grandmother Esther Francis Weldin is buried I believe in this cemetery and is the mother of Paul Edgar Weldin.

Thanks for you help in this. You are doing a awesome job!

Maupins of Madison County Kentucky
With FTDNA I just found YDNA match results in my Payne family with the Maupins but cannot find where they connect. After talking to some Maupins I am so very confused because we cannot find the lineage.....I do know the Maupins that are matching is Otto Maupin b 1901 Kansas d 1984 California and I do have contacts with the living Maupins of this family but they have no idea of a connection with Payne family in Breckinridge County Kentucky. Any information would be helpful. Thank You, Nancy Jackowiak, Find A Grave Contributor

Sorry, I almost forgot to ask how you feel about our using one of your headstone photos for a free-to-use website, i.e. as long as you are given credit?

Thank you for your quick work on adding his obituary and the other updates. He is distant family to me and I really appreciate it!

RE: Eliza Beathe -- Beathe Cemetery

With so many "J. Beathe" in one family it gets confusing. When the deaths were originally reported the clerk didn't always do a good job of recording the information. Deaths some times were reported weeks, even months after the event had occurred and memories often can be fuzzy, leading to differences in death dates recorded and death dates on tombstones, also family connections.
Clay Hamilton transcribed the original death records, he is a very meticulous researcher. I could see Jos. & Jas. being difficult to discern on original documents. I also found mentions of a J. Robert Beathe, overseer of the poor.

RE: James M. Beathe - Beathe Cemetery.

The area where the Beathe grave yard is located is in a mostly wooded area, with uneven ground making it difficult to discern what may or may not be a grave. There are two distinct depressions in the ground that are definitely graves which have no markers at all. There are four graves that have rocks marking them, which are unknown at this time. It's highly likely that the three Beathes you listed are buried here, if they resided in the same area as the others.
