A precious one from us has gone, A voice we loved is stilled, A place is vacant in our home, Which never can be filled. In loving memory of my family and friends.
I'm a proud member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. My gggg-grandfathers John Shacklett FAG #45092203, Richard Ashcraft FAG #96952717, Joseph Newton Fox FAG #47960698, Thomas Thomas FAG #56840518, Thomas Johnson FAG # 15519989, John Howlett FAG # 154414045, and John Wimp FAG #30181373, served in the Revolutionary War. John Shacklett served as a Private in Captain Nicholas Shinn's Company of Rangers. Richard Ashcraft served as an Indian scout in western Pennsylvania along the Monongahela River serving in Captain Bazil Bowell's Company. Joseph Fox served as a private in the 11th VA Regiment of the Continental Army under Captain David Steel. He spent the winter of 1777-1778 at Valley Forge. For his service he received 336 acres of land in Perry Township, Greene County, Pennsylvania, patent 15, January 15, 1814. He chose a grassy knoll on his property as his final resting place. Thomas Thomas served as a Pvt. 3rd Regiment Maryland Line. Thomas Johnson served in a Frederick County, MD. volunteer company of Associators. John Howlett served as a Private in the 1st, 3rd. and 7th Regts. under Captains. Beatty, Price, and Beall. John Wimp served as Sergeant in Captain James Floyd's Company of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania Militia, commanded by Colonel William Chambers. John Wimp was a Mason and frequently spoke of having met General Washington in the Masonic lodge at Fairfax.
I have to laugh every time I see this quote from members who have THOUSANDS of entries on FAG: "Transfers will be made according to FAG guidelines, direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents." One man who loves to quote this has over 356,000 entries and he states that 99.99% are not related to him. He enters thousands of people who are not related to him, but makes a family member follow the direct relative four generation rule. I just can't see the logic in that.
RE: John Howlett # 154414045 Thank you so much for the information, I have been able to fill in several blanks now! I descended through the daughter Mary Ann Howlett's side, from her marriage to Patrick L Gray. My mother's maiden name was Gray. Thank you again,
John Howlett # 154414045 Hello, I'm writing to ask about the information you posted about John Howlett Find A Grave # 154414045. In your post from Oct. 30, 2015 you have him as dying and being buried in Bullitt County, Kentucky in 1848 and I'm curious how you came to that conclusion. I cant seem to find any information on his death anywhere. He is my 4th Great Grandfather, and I would love to know more about him. Thanks for any help you may be able to provide me,
Find A Grave Memorial# 106358318 Hi Dixie---I wanted to explain my edit for Bessie Keller. The photo I added is of her and her first husband, Ross Donovan. However, she married George Keller in the 1930's, and everyone knew her as Bessie Keller for almost 40 years, so I thought her name should reflect that. She was not related to me, just an old family friend.
Joseph Newton Fox Hi! My name is Shantel Davis and I am trying to track down my family line. I have ran into the Fox family through my fathers mothers side. Joseph's daughter Elizabeth married a Myers which leads us to today. I havent the foggiest idea how to go about locating this area and was wondering if you had any tips since you had been there. I take off for Pennslyvania in 2 wks and would love to have a nice head start. If you could help at all please contact me either here or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much for your time God Bless & Keep Searching, Shantel Davis
RE: Armstrong memorials? Dixie, Let me know what Armstrong memorials I manage I can transfer to you. Although Find A Grave has those "regulations" stating we cannot transfer a memorial to "any family member who asks", I have always believed in "family is family", period!
I have thousands of memorials that I would gladly transfer to "ANY" memorial to "ANY" relation of the deceased. Family IS family.
Contact me at: email@example.com, to let me know what memorials you would like me to transfer to you.
Make sure you ADD your Find A Grave ID#, please!? Evelynne "Scot Lady"
re: Armstrong Family, Guthrie, OK Dixie, I was transferring some Armstrong memorials to another Find A Grave member and noted both of you appear to be researching the same Armstrong family lines? Her name is Staci, her Find A Grave number is 48315171. I have let her know of your possible connection. If either of you need any help, let me know, and I will be glad to help any way I can.
