John Chaffin is my 3rd great-grandfather. I am related through his son, William Chafin and William's wife, Mary McMullen. Not sure if I have anything you can use, but I saw your e-mail address here on Find A Grave. I will try to send you an e-mail, so that I can go into more detail. If you don't receive my e-mail, please send one to me at: email@example.com. I would be very interested in exchanging information with you.
Asher King You requested a photograph for Asher King in Buchanan County, Missouri. I was wondering if you knew about his parents. I have a mysterious Joseph King who married a girl living in Buchanan County in the same township.
Her uncle Allen Alfred Whittington is buried in the same cemetery.
Clara Douglas Hi Ellajean: I don't know if this is the correct format to add information. If not please let me know. The lady above #59308032 was my father's aunt. He never met her as she died prior to his birth. She was born Clara Belle Fenter on 12 Jun 1880 in Pima County Arizona Territory. She died on 14 Aug 1909 in Tucson, Pima, Arizona Territory. She is a daughter of William Duke Fenter 1835-1896 and Sarah Elizabeth Parker 1851-1924. For the record Sarah Fenter (nee: Parker) is memorialized and is buried at Evergreen in Tucson. William Duke is memorialized, but his exact resting place is unknown. Clara Belle married Thomas H. Douglas in Cochise County Arizona Territory on 10 Dec 1896. A son Virgil Douglas was born to them in 1903 probably in Cochise County. Somewhere along the line Clara Belle and Thomas H must have been divorced. She married Henry R. Armbrust 02 Jun 1908 in Cochise County. There is an Arizona Death Certificate in the name of Clara Armbrust. Why her headstone reads Clara Douglas I do not know. Perhaps in deference to her son. I do know the headstone was placed as a result of an Eagle Scout Project to identify unknown graves in the 7th street cemetery. Please update her memorial as you see fit or transfer to me if you wish. You would of course be kept as the originator. Thanks for your good work. Ben Greenwood
I've been building a massive tree from people that my father has matched via DNA. I've been working on the Bledsoe Family from Ben and bringing his descendants to the present. I've also been able to connect a Gammon family to the Bledsoe's via Hamilton and Lays families.
My father was born in Newark, NJ 15 April 1931. He's also somehow connected to his adoptive family. His adoptive family (maternal side is Irish)prior to living in NJ they hailed from Olyphant, PA
I haven't found anyone on that tree that ended up in NJ or PA in 1930.
Long story but I'll keep it short. I'm trying to find my father's biological parents and through DNA testing found two matches have led me to a common ancestor which is Ben Bledsoe born 1745. Somewhere, somehow one of his descendants is probably my illusive grandparent.
