Just one that is interested in preserving what records are still available to us. Appreciate all of my ancestors and what they have done. Find A Grave is a wonderful work and deserves our help. Photos that I have taken may be used in your personal projects or copied to Ancestry.com trees at will.
Lately I've been reading a bunch of stuff between 1880 and 1900, from Orange County and Sullivan County, Indiana because that's where my ancestors are from. It's quite amazing stuff.
About Charles Wright, no I'm not related, but you can't help but read articles or snip-its NEXT TO the one that you're intentionally looking at. And, as I find random information like Charles', and IF I can find said person on Find A Grave, I try to pass it along.
In that same list was the death of two little brothers, ages 7 and 5, that were killed the same day in 1887, by a rolling log. I sent that one to the creator of their memorials. Kids like that are especially touching because, in that window of time (1880 - 1900), they never show up on the census.
Just trying to turn some unknowns, into knowns.
Since the newspaper had gone to so much trouble to assemble the list of 120, it would have been helpful had they added the year that the death actually occurred. Again, the list, from the 1893 newspaper, was just recounting deaths and murders over the prior twenty or so years.
RE: Moores Ridge Cemetery You know, I put the info found from your families on my tree and Maria's name also comes up as Malinda: Name: William Smith, Spouse Name: Malinda Cartwright,Marriage Date: 24 Jan 1847, Marriage County: Orange. Have you checked under Malinda? Also, have you seen the photo of William and Jane (Freeman) Smith with Wm. P. Smith and Sarene? Chiquita #47559633
RE: Moores Ridge Cemetery Was Wm. H. Smith's mom by any chance Martha Jane McCormick and dad Joseph H Smith,and his maternal grandmother being Missouri Ann Mickler, my 4th cousin (or something like that)??? Chquita
RE: Moore's Ridge Did you find the headstones YOU were needing? I took several photos last time I got to go home of family I could readily find, and also got to visit with the Crecelius', but forgot to ask about the ones I didn't find. Also a mower fellow was there and I tried to stay out of his way - then I got lost going back to town! We have Bledsoes, Kendalls and Galloways there, but I know so many of the other families. Even ran upon the doctor that delivered me many moons ago. Chiquita
Moore's Ridge & The Galloways Thank you so much for trying to find my family gravesites of MARY BLEDSOE, WM. GALLOWAY, HIRAM GALLOWAY, LOUISA GALLOWAY, MARTHA GALLOWAY, & LEWIS BLEDSOE for me. I do appreciate it very much, esp. with me over 1,000 miles away. I will contact the Trustees there, Charlie and Rhetha Crecelius, and see if they can also look for me since they will have the plot charts. Probably the stones are illegible as you suggested, but they will know the locations and might help me out. Thank you again!!! Chiquita (Heckler) Baker 47559633
I may have tried contacting you before regarding the memorial for my great grandmother Nancy Ellen McHargue Wright. I would like you to transfer management of her memorial to me because it will be easier to make changes for me. My father was Earl Franklin Wright (memorial 156907827); my grandfather was William Albert Wright (memorial 78558957. I have posted pictures on their memorials plus pictures and information for other family members.
