Re: Rebecca Davis (m. to Lemuel Allis/Ellis - son of Samuel Allis/Ellis)
Looking for a solid connection for Rebecca/Rebecka Davis Allis/Ellis 9ST8-248 ( to her supposed parents, Isaac Davis LDZ5-5BZ & Charity Hall LZVR-J2G (of Lee, Berkshire, Mass), and sibling, Reuben Davis LZVC-QXX (m. to Mary Polly Abbott) who trace back to Thomas Rogers of the Mayflower. Reuben Davis was born 13 Mar 1764 in Tyringham, Berkshire, Massachusetts & died in 1810 in Pompey, Onondaga, New York. The will for Isaac Davis (b. 9 January 1720 Tyringham, Tyringham, Berkshire, Massachusetts and d. 5 January 1780 Lee, Berkshire, Massachusetts) names wife, Charity, & children Rebecka and Reuben, along with other siblings (John, Sarah, Mary, Soloman/Solomon, Nathan, Charity, & Isaac), but does not mention any of their married names, spouses, or grandchildren. Also, Truman Leonard Jr mentions Lemuel Allis/Ellis family and his parents, Truman Leonard Sr & Roxanna Allis/Ellis in his journals with visits and other family history he found (accessed thru BYU Perry Collections). Reuben Davis names his last born, Lemuel Allis/Ellis, as found in his will. My Mother is also a Wing, which eventually ties into this line thru marriage. Thank you for all of those who have done research on our family lines/graves! Jackie Coleman (Lemuel Allis, son of Lemuel Allis & Rebecca Davis) (Roxanna Allis & Truman Leonard are the children of Rebecca & Lemuel, & parents of my Truman Leonard, Jr) (Truman Leonard Jr, grandson of Lemuel Allis & Rebecca Davis)

Amanda Davis Braffet, daughter of Reuben Davis & Mary Abbott (Reuben is brother to the Rebecca Iím searching for who married Lemuel Allis)

Abel Owen, husband to Elizabeth Abbott Davis, daughter of Reuben Davis & Mary Abbott (Reuben is brother to the Rebecca Iím searching for who married Lemuel Allis)

Lemuel Allisís father, Samuel Allis (married to Hannah Sheldon). This information Iím searching for is for Lemuelís wife, Rebecca Davis to her parents.

Elinor (Norman) Cook #8246182
Thanks so much for my grandmother's transfer. I am somewhat confused as to the birth locations of the children, ie, twins Thomas and Abraham born in different locations and births switching back and forth in town locations. I'm curious where this info was obtained so I can look at it myself. Thanks for any help you can send my way.

I am the granddaughter of Ressie Pearl (nee Holmes) Colley. I left a couple of pictures of her and of her sister Ozzie. I remember meeting my great grandmother Molly when I was very young. But I do remember her being blind and her touching my face. I also meet my great Aunt Ozzie when I was very young too. She came to New Jersey to see my grandmother.

Wiggins Family
Hi. My name is Peggy Campbell McCormick. Thomas Wiggins was my 2nd great grandfather. For some reason he changed his name to Thomas Leonard Wiggins Kitson. He married Margaret Carnagy after his first wife died. Their daughter Sarah married Jay Albert Campbell and Sarah was my grandmother.

Lieut. Alexander Marsh
Just returned from the Hancock Burial Ground and submitted corrections on the stone transcription for Lieutenant Alexander Marsh (6997047). We excavated the earth at the base of the stone to reveal the remainder of the inscription and did some general tidying-up to the general area before taking new pictures, which I'll post a little later this evening. I am a direct descendant and Alexander Marsh was my first ancestor to arrive in Massachusetts from England.

Re: David & Catherine Kern
Hi again. Sent a few edits to move relevant details (marker transcriptions / plot) from my inadvertent dupes to your initially mis-placed originals. Have also linked the children to yours, prior to removing my entries, probably next week. Have you initiated the Cem Fix request to add the AKA and remove the empty cemetery? Would appreciate it if you would, please. If anything else from me is required, just lmk. Thanks =])

William Henry Barofsky
On memorial #52476814, you have him as "Rev. Fr William H. Barofsky". He was not a reverend. The "Father" on his gravestone is in reference to the fact that he was a father to his son, Lester. In the 1900 census he listed his occupation as "teamster", and in his 1917 draft registration he listed his occupation as "packer at flour mill". He was born June 16, 1883 in Missouri and died January 10, 1919.

Elizabeth Haskell Bow
Memorial # 974286
Just noticed that you listed Elizabeth H (Haskell) Bow as born 1794. She was actually born 23 October 1792. Her birth record can be seen at Family Search, and on her Widows Pension Claim from Edmund Bows service in War of 1812 Clam #10299.
As to the Stephen Douglas Bow twin to Isaac, I have not found ANY record of him???. Thanks for the nice memorial records for Elizabeth & Edmund.
If you happen to be related to them I have a LOT of records of them. I can be contacted at

Rosemary McFarland
Solomon Edward Long sr 19154206
In researching his family, the DAR records show his mother was Elizabeth Blair, who most likely died at or soon after childbirth. Do you have any record/information showing that Martha Robinson is the birth mother? Thanks for all you do,

Pettus Family Cemetery
FYI, I had to use Yorkville as the city for the cemetery as it was the closest in Gibson County. It is actually closer to Trimble, but that city is in Dyer County.

Jo Anne Russell
James F. Hamilton, # 10026905
I know you maintain many memorials and therefore probably don't have time to track sources, but I was wondering if you have or know the source for the birth date of 20 Dec 1795 that you posted on James F. Hamilton's memorial #10026905. -- Do you know if that birth date is from his headstone, or another source? I'm trying to confirm his birth year because the census records indicate he may have been born before 1795.

Thank you.
Jo Russell

RE: McKeehan Cemetery, TN
I sent all the duplicates into Find A Grave and then they will merge them, but it may take some time. I met him years ago and he was supposedly writing a book on cemeteries of Carter Co. With all the links he added there is no way he could not have he had duplicates.
