The goal of my FAG entries are to help others searching for their family to find a ancestoral burial and other family information. |
The postings made here basically come from two sources. Most of the postings are from extensive family genealogical records. For those with family connections I have posted bio info that focuses on the person and shared some of their available family info.
The balance of the burial postings are for individuals for which I have no ties. These postings are primarily from cemetery censuses with a added focus on veterans. I've also posted memorials for unrelated individuals that shared some of my ancestral surnames.
Hopefully these postings may help you make a connection.
I appreciate the opportunity that Find A Grave gives everyone to learn and share. If you want to review or add to what is already shown, or discuss posting please contact me.

|Little Lady||RE: Elizabeth Swagler Buckingham|
Well, the information can be found on familysearch.org. That is where I found the information for both sons. Thanks! :)
|Gerald Heston||Morgan Jones #56133464|
Morgan Jones #56133464 was my 4th great grandfather. I have the Bible of his daughter Elizabeth who married Benjamin Standiford.
The Bible says Morgan Jones was born 15 July 1774 and died 23 Mar 1853.
His wife was Ruth Jackson who died 1 Mar 1829, age 45 years/5 months/9 days (makes her birth date about 20 Sep 1783). Family lore says she was from the same family as General "Stonewall" Jackson.
Where did you get all this great information for the Jones family?

This memorial indicates his birth in County Donegal, Ireland. Do you by chance have a source for that info? Thank you! Wylie Gibson Raab email@example.com
|Gayle Basaldu||RE: Enoch Morgan marker|
Thank you so much for the update on the gravestone for Enoch Morgan. I am so very thankful that his gravestone inscription was recorded at an earlier date. I really appreciate you taking the time to explain the situation to me. God bless you!

Thank you for creating the memorial of Ezekial Zollars. I see you were trying to locate his parents, "Sarah and Ned" Zollars. I confess the picture of the tombstone is too worn down to see the description myself, but I may have an answer for you.
I believe his parents were Sarah and "Neal" Zollars. If the "a" fused with the "l" on the tombstone, I could see how it could have been read as Ned. In addition, in 1893 the book Commemorative Biographical Record of Washington County, Pennsylvania by J.H. Beers lists out Neal Zollars and Sarah Martin's children as follows:
"George, Joseph, Nancy (deceased), Ezekiel (deceased), Grant, Kate, Elmira, and Martha Zollars".
It was published 1893. In addition this couple can be found in Morris, Washington Co Pa in 1870 with children George, Joseph, Nancy and Ulysses Grant. (Name mistranscribed Lollara on Ancestry, Lollers on familysearch). 1880 has them East Bethlehem, Washington Co. Additional children Catherine, Mary A. and Martha are found.
I believe Mary A. is the missing Elmira. All in all I've found this book to be remarkably accurate and provable. They seem to have interviewed relatives of the family to get the information. So I think his parents are Neal and Sarah Zollars of Beallsville Cemetery. Both of them have duplicate memorials so give me a bit to message their creators and see if they can agree to reduce the number of memorials to one. If you agree with this relation, I will submit an edit to Ezekial to add the relationships to the single memorials when finished.

First, that section of ground is for the Evans family. If you look at all the grave markers there this marker is the largest and most prevalent for the Evans family. John Evans Sr was the most distinguished member of the Evans family. He lived only a block away from the cemetery, his son also only lived a couple blocks away, his home still stands on Sharpless Rd "John Evans Sr.". John donated the land the church is built on and formed the London Britain Township both in the year 1725. John owned most if not all of the land in London Britain township where the Church is located. I could not 100% read or say this is his grave marker but I would put a stake on it that it is. Also note he died two years after his son, John would've been buried next to his son. His grave marker would've been like his sons but better, John Sr was so much more well known to the residents all around. Looking at the choices you have this would have to be his grave marker. John Sr. would not have had just a stone, there is no others of this type to choose from and this type of marker would have not washed away in any flood!

Thanks for all the great information.
My error, I did not look first. I see now that his last name has been corrected. Thank you, that will help some with searches.

|HJ||RE: Jno. B. Ackburn|
Thank you for posting the military info. One question--how will anyone find him in a search, if the name remains entered incorrectly? If you look carefully at the top photo of the marker, you can see the bottom horizontal leg of the partially missing letter "L." The name was not inscribed incorrectly, the stone is damaged. Also, the policy does state to use full names when known. No one searching for John Blackburn will find the memorial for Jno Ackburn. Will you please reconsider correcting his name? Thank you!
