Bio and Links
Bio Photo Findagrave has a wonderful feature that allows memorial holders to update many requests at a time, but only if done via the Edit tab --- so please try that before leaving information on the profile page! This feature is a true blessing.


Please keep your requests via the "other" information option to a minimum, as the workload has become unsustainable.

Over zealous senders may find theirs deleted. Hope they switch to messages via flowers. Thank you.

Obits under copyright should be summarized and will not be posted, so please do not send them. In most cases, there is a 72-year or longer time period.

If you wish to download one of my tombstone pictures, you may do so for personal usage and should give proper credit. Under no circumstances should they be added to other sites (such as Ancestry) as if they are your own.

Photographs of individuals require PERMISSION, and if lifted from here without appropriate permission or credit are subject to licensing fees.

Please follow Findagrave guidelines to be within a few generations and a direct descendant. For older ones, please communicate the reason.

As the number of memorials I manage increases, I sometimes elect to transfer without being asked. If you received a transfer and do not wish to manage it, please transfer back.

Ann Hendricks Stewart & dau., Eliza Jane
I an a member of Findagrave (#48241044) and am a DAR registrar in Phoenix, AZ. I am trying to help a prospective member document that her ancestor, Eliza Jane Stewart who married Henry Saunders was a daughter of Ann Hendricks and Jacob Stewart. I found Eliza J. & Henry just below 55 year old Jacob and the rest of his family on the 1850 census in Washington Twp, Decatur Co., IN.

do you know of any way to document that he & Ann were Eliza Jane's parents? Our prospective's great grandmother was DAR member #82499. She gave no documentation for this parentage and no dates/places for births/deaths of Jacob & Ann.

Eliza Jane & Henry were buried in Albia, Monroe Co., IA. Her memorial # is 98282811 if you wish to connect her to Ann.'s memorial #6148555. .
A more recent DAR member said Jacob was born 4 Oct 1792 in IN & died on 16 Jul 1894 in Albia, IA.

Thanks for any help,
Mary Anne Hammond

Henry Niemann #94481099

I dug up the death certificate for Henry Niemann #94481099 (following up a theory my cousin had that being a neighbor of our GGrands he died of the same thing they did since they all died within a year of each other) the theory panned out.

I don't add death certs as pictures... but am glad to email to you. Just let me know.

Captain Thaddeus Weed Gravesite
Hello Madam.

I have an interesting interjection. Thaddeus has two graves. One in Saratoga County, NY who is listed by you in Find A Grave: 40238785 and another in Northfield Cemetery in Stamford, Connecticut listed by me as: 28196848.

Now here is what I do now is fact:

He was commissioned as a first lt. in 1777 for service in the 5th Regiment, CT line, and was captain in the 2nd Regiment, CT line. From 1777 to 1781, serving as acting brigadier quarter-master from 25 May 1778 to 1781, and as captain lt. on 1 June 1781. As captain of a company detached from the 2nd Regiment, Thaddeus and his company served August 1781 with Lafayette's Light Division in Virginia. Captain Weed resigned 17 December 1781. He was a member of the CT Society of the Cincinnati in 1783.

Thaddeus Weed was born in Stamford, 27 October 1748, son of Benjmain Weed and his second wife, Sarah (Hait) Smith, who were married 14 Januar 1747/8. She was the widow of Joseph Smith, Jr. whose will dated 19 February 1745 was probated 6 May 1745 at Stamford. Thaddeus's brothers Abijah, Ananias, Benjamin, and Smith were soldiers. He married, first, Prudence Hait, born 19 July 1744, daughter of Ebenezer, Jr. and Hannah (Clason) Hait. He married second, Anne, who died 22 March 1802, aged 50 years, and was buried in North Street Cemetery at Stamford. Thaddeus died 12 February 1804 at Greenfield, New york, and was buried in the North Street Cemetery, Stamford. His will, probated at Stamford, names his brothers and sisters and those of the "half blood." No children were mentioned.

Your dates and mine are matching and what is more his death place and the grave you posted on F.A.G. is matching. Can you help shed light on this?
