|Danie Turner||Memorial #5495916 - Nancy Wakefield|
I was hoping that you could help me with documenting the source for the date of death of the Nancy M. Wakefield Find A Grave Memorial# 5495916 that you created on May 30, 2001. You have the death date as 27 November 1814, but the photo I took at the cemetery states the date of death as 2 November 1814 on the marker. I would be grateful if you could help me locate a source that clarifies the accurate date of death and any other genealogical information on her. She is my 3rd Great Grandmother and I would love to have anything you are willing to share. Thank you for your help.

|Lorane Whitehead Ranells||William Conner # 143769466|
I have a brick wall in my research that has the possibility of being the daughter of William Conner # 143769466. May I ask where the order of birth came from that you show ? Most of the information I am finding on the Jane Conner shown has her death day and location the exact same as her sister Mary and some even have Mary's spouse shown as her's. Thank you in advance for any help you can be.

I am curious as to where you sourced the name of Aaron Patton to be Aaron "Franklin" Patton?
I have a History of the Patton family written in 1961 by Lillian Thomas (1892-1966) of Buncombe County. She is buried at Patton Cemetery. No indication of a middle name is mentioned in her research. Mrs Thomas also lists Aaron's wife as "Magdaline" Cunningham.
Mrs. Thomas lived there and was familiar enough with the Patton family to write a family history prior to the age of computers and the erratic family histories posted at Ancestry.Com used by amateurs as historical fact.
There were "two" other Patton's named Aaron Franklin Patton including the son of Aaron but this fact doesn't prove the Aaron born in 1765 had a middle name.
1840 Court records of Buncombe refer to Aaron Patton, deceased, his wife Magdaline Patton and their son Aaron F. Patton.

|Karen Fry & Raymond Miller||Joseph Workman|
My second great grandmother was Sinah Workman daughter of Joseph Workman and Sarah Ann Harding. I am having trouble with the timeline for Joseph's father John Workman
1791-1874?. Sarah Ann Hardings timeline shows her living in Illinois and giving birth to Joseph there in 1823 but her husband John as never leaving Adair County KY and her eventually marrying Litton probably in the 1830s. Was there a divorce or did John Workman actually die in or before 1930 in Illinois. Do you have any other info? You can email me at

|Patty Donohoe||John Spencer Martin|
Greetings! I am contacting you concerning the possibility that John Martin is my 5X great grandfather via daughter Elizabeth. I have seen this connection on an ancestry tree and subsequently found your findagrave memorial for him.
My Elizabeth Martin married James Williams of Washington County, VA. They moved on to Monroe County, TN. I see you have Elizabeth with another spouse. Can you tell me more about this family, so that either I am elated or realize I may be chasing the wrong Elizabeth down a "rabbit hole."

|Robert St. John||John J. Scahill 1919-2000|
My name is Robert St. John and I am the Commander of Clinton County NY American Legion and also Commander of American Legion Post 912 in Rouses Point, NY.I have a memorial item that was made for John by Valor Enterprise Inc of Waterville Me. This item was picked up about 20 years ago at a flea market in Portland ME. One of our members saw it and he purchased it wondering how the family of this man let it go. The member that purchased it, died in 2002 and his family just came across it. They have asked me to see if there are any family members who would like to have this memorial. I have pictures of it and can send it to your e-mail, but wanted to contact you first through findagrave. The memorial commemorates his service in the USAF and the Priesthood. I can be contacted by e-mail rstj@mail .com

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.

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.

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.

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, familysearch.org 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 email@example.com

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,

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.

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.
