Wondering if you would know where Capt John VanMeter's b 1776 first wife Ruth Nelly Seabron or Seaborn was buried. I thought she might be in Rocky Fork, but do not see it on Find A Grave. She d 1812 in OH with him and 3 children. He m Sophia Clark in 1814 in Ross Co OH. So not sure where they were living in 1812. Nellie's last 2 children were b in Colarain twp Ross Co. It would be another puzzle solved if I could find this. Thanks.

RE: flower
Stu -

Agreed in regards to nice vs. nasty on Find A Grave.

No, I guess I didn't get you message regarding the VanMeters. I checked my email inbox as well as here and there is nothing.

RE: James Van Meter
Hi Stu -

The way to remove a Flower is to click on your actual Flower icon, not the wording, and a screen will come up, with the option "Remove this offering" and proceed. That option, of course, only comes up on your own flower postings.

I see the real problem with putting bio info in a flower in that if several other people add flowers after the one with info, the info one will eventually go off screen and I'm sure there are many viewers, myself included, who do not scroll thru the flowers and find the bio info.

Unfortunately, Find A Grave does not have a means of a person viewing all the "Flowers" they themselves have posted, so to go back and find those with bio info is not an easy task. When bringing such flowers to others attention, I try to convey it as help, rather than critism. I had someone tell me recently that they had gotten "hate mail" about bio info in flowers he had posted on their memorials. It would be a better place, as my mother used to say, if people would "Keep a civil tongue in your head"!

Hi Stu -
I have copied the info in the "Flower" you left for James VanMeter to the bio section. I would greatly appreciate it if you would remove the flower since bio info in flowers is inappropriate.

RE: Eva Atha
Hi Stu,
Eva Atha was a sister to my paternal grandmother, Rosa Atha 1866-1898 so Eva was my great-aunt and her children with Thomas Dildine are my 1st cousins once removed.
Are you a descendant of them? I really don't know much if anything about the Dildanes. My line of research is the Athas.
Thanks for your interest.

RE: The Dildine Family
I did not research the ancestors of Thomas Dildine as he is only related by marriage. I'm sorry I cannot help you. The only information that I found was the marriage date for William & Sarah Jane Jones on 06 Oct 1852 in Marion, Ohio. That came from I'm sorry that I could not help.

Parkville, MO

RE: Aye Boulder
Stu, I know I have written to you before. My father was Wallace Knowles Schneider. His mother was Ada Lorraine Knowles m. Aloysius "Ollie" Schneider. Ada's parents were Harrison "Henry" Knowles & Margarette "Margaret" Ann Lindsay - all of Marion Co., Ohio.
Henry Knowles parents were Capt. Hiram Knowles & Catherine Foos daughter of Capt. John Foos and Mary Aye, daughter of George Jacob Aye of Frederick, Maryland & Anna Catharina "Catherine" Dutro, Dutrow or Dotterer.

It appears we connect with Foos, Aye. Can you figure how we connect, from the above information.
