Find A Grave Memorial# 62628443
I am writing regarding John Moore, b. 1738, d. 1803,said to be the son of Cornelius Moore and Elizabeth Grandson. I would like to know where that information came from. Is it from the gravestone or some other source? John Moore is my 5th great grandfather and my research identified his father as Edward Moore and mother as Mary Nelles, and if this wrong I would like to correct it.

Thank you
James Field

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."

Duplicate Memorial
In Jacksonville East Cemetery, Memorial 58874107 is a duplicate memorial with in incorrect death date. It duplicates 90785806 which has the correct death date and numerous family links. This one should be deleted.

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

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

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

Dear one:
Thank you so much for the transfer of my very dear and long known friend to me. I will take very good care of the memorial. This really means a lot to me. I will miss her dearly.

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.
