RE: Larry Howard Hickerson
My husband and I were in Arthur for a running event and I looked up the cemetery there to see if photos were needed. I was able to get 6 of the 8 requests done. It's a nice feeling to help others. Glad to be of assistance.

TY , I added your note to the memorial in Newport rather than delete since it is listed in transcription and will point others to the correct burial location rather than someone in the future re-entering them in Newport.

Thanks for the quick reply. I did find the birth of Samuel in 1743 in Grafton VR to Samuel and Mary.... From all I can see, that is the Samuel who married Anna Brigham. I also checked for sources on Samuel Sr and his wife Elizabeth Stratton.... they had several children around the same time Samuel was born, but I could not find they named any child Samuel. They had children in late 1741 and early 1744, so there isnt much room for a child born in 1743. Hope this helps.

I received your request..... I need a bit more info as I have his parents as Samuel (1714-98) and MARY _____. Need to compare sources before I finalize.

RE: Sir James Harrington
Thanks so much! I have found that Ann Fiennes-Clinton and Deacon Thomas Hastings both had a mother with the maiden name of KNYVETT, while Ann also descends from the Hastings.

Re: Richard+Florentina+Richard+Ann Long (Wiltshire UK)

I have been to St Mary the Virgin's in Steeple Ashton and have photographed the two memorial plaques for you.

I then found their burial site at St John the Evangelist and have photographed that too. I believe that while the actual bodies are within the underground Crypt at St John they also have a large stone alter burial above ground - but I need to enhance the images of the writing around the edge of this to confirm it as I could only make out the odd word due to a hard-to-read script and several hundred years of weathering!

On top of that I visited "Long's Park Castle", which is a Lodge/Folly attached to what was Roode Ashton House, the Long's residence for a number of generations. The House was destroyed in the 20th C but this little gatehouse remains and is a holiday home for rent.

You can find information at

I need to do some work with the photographs - do you have an email that I can WeTransfer a zip file to you at once they are done?

The information written below is what was on Find A Grave but at they top of the birth death section you have born in 1586
Below you have born 1565 Which is correct
William Ring was born in 1565 in Pettistree, Suffolk, England. He married Mary DURRANT 21 May 1601 in Ufford, Suffolk, England. William had been aboard the Speedwell, sister ship to the Mayflower, intending to voyage across the Atlantic in 1620. William was, however, among the passengers who could not fit aboard the Mayflower when the Speedwell was deemed unseaworthy. He returned to Leiden and died there sometime between 1620 and 1629.

This is what you have at the top
Birth 1586 in Pettistree, Suffolk, England
Death 1620 in Leiden, Leiden Municipality, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

Myself and another person that researches the 'WILLIARD/WILLYARD' family noted that you had made this entry and was wondering 'WHAT PROOF' is there, that they were buried there.

We noted that you had put all the census data, but 'NO HEADSTONE' was photographed. Did you get the information from a family bible, or an obituary??

In addition, Jacob would have had to have died after: (15 August 1880) not June 1880, as he is on the that census as:
Age 79 - Living at: Kent, Portage County, Ohio, District 238. (ANC-5/67). Occupation - none. Married? Born in Virginia? Unknown where both of his parents were born. Page 465-A.

Because he died 'after' 1868, his exact death date should have been recorded at the Portage County Court house in their death register. Did you possibly check that out there??

Thank you,

RE: The Long Family Burials
Hello Donna.

Yes, I already saw that site so I know the plaques are there - somewhere! But in the two minutes I had I failed to find it.

The actual burials though will apparently be in the Mausoleum at West Ashton.

I shall endeavour to search out both for you - but it might take me a bit as I'm very busy up to the end of January.

All the best,

Hi, I popped along to St Mary's Church to find the inside plaques for the Long family - the church warden was just closing so I didn't have long to look. I didn't find them this time but will go back to do so.

Interestingly the warden said that if they have a plaque in the church then their bodies were most likely moved to West Ashton Mausoleum.

If you get the chance please look into that (I will if I am able) and get back to me! :)

Thanks for the memorial. I recently found it while researching the ancestry of Rosella Hughes nee Garrison Moore dau of Emailine Moore who was one of George's daughters. Your references to Cumberland Co is helping the family understand the connection between Rosella and Cumberland Co where her mysterous GARRISON father apparently was from.

Rosella is my kids 2g gm.

William Ring etc.
I can't thank you enough for the work you've done with these graves and biographies. I am indebted to you. William is my husband's 10th great-grandfather and to learn of Andrew Ring's crossing with his mother is amazing. We are truly grateful for the hard work you've done.
