I have been seriously involved with family history and genealogy for about 40 years. I am a family history consultant and I spend many hours with my hobby and I enjoy writing a weekly genealogy column for a local newspaper. Most all of my postings are of my loving and faithful ancestors with the exception of a few. Please feel free to email me with comments and or corrections to any of these postings. In no way do I wish to hurt or offend anyone with this information. It is only my intention to help others with Family History Research. I currently reside in Southern Utah but spent my youth in Southeastern Iowa.
My Ancestors on my mothers side: Briand, Caron, Bonenfant, Delude, Desautels, Desjardins, Houle, Lavarnway, Major, Moussette, Nault, Rellas, St. Amant, St. Onge and Vaillancourt.
My Ancestors on my fathers side: Atwood, Axtell, Bacon, Baker, Beach, Blake, Butcher, Cadwallader, Cheatham, Coble, Copelin, Cowman, Diller, Fear, Garrett, Grapes, Hicklin, Irwin, Knowler, Leathers, Lederer, Lockard, McNabb, Malcom, Mattox, Mellinger, Moore, Myers, Nelson, Patterson, Pearson, Pence, Peters, Snodgrass, Snook, Spates, Stringfellow, Taylor, Thomas, Tipton, Willhoit, Wymore and Yeoman.
Elizabeth (Olmstead) Marchant Upright You posted a photo on her memorial #27043315 and I'm curious where you got it and if you're related. I've been looking for her for years as she is somehow connected to my Merchant/Hopkins. Thanks, Lee
RE: Flavie and Jean B. Lambert Oh wow, I would have never of guessed that! How sad to think that he died before coming here, and that Flavie would pass away a year after arriving. Flavie and Jean appear to be my 2nd great grandparents. They had another son, (Memorial# 126982444 )Joseph who is my great grandfather. There have been so many mysteries within my family, and I've been trying to put the pieces together on ancestry. Thank-you so much for your time and information, as I am going to add it to my tree. I really appreciate that!
Field Edits BTW, it just occurred to me - you do know to look at the Edit Tab on your profile page to view these, right? :-) I have no idea why Find A Grave made this change and never notified anyone. And it's pretty clear that a lot of people don't know they won't ever get emails about edits made this way. Anyway, I thought I should mention it...
Elisha Janes Hi, I am trying to find information on the location of a burial of Ann Catherine Crocker Janes. She married Simeon or Simon Janes in Henry Co., Iowa near New London 17 Jan 1861. He seems to have been some younger than her. In the 1880 Census they were Simon Janes age 45, Shoemaker** born in England. Ann C.(Catherine) Janes age 50 born in Maryland-parents born Engl. Parents Sampson & Mary Crocker at Burge cemetery but no stone for Ann Catherine. "Wed.,May 6, 1908-Mt. Pleasant News" stated that Mary Ann Jeanes of New London died Monday May 5th and was to be returned from Kansas to New London, Ia. The Funeral would be on Wednesday possibly the 6th, and would be held at "U. P. church" with burial there. --No cemetery was listed and I am uncertain if it is the United Presbyterian church that held the funeral. Since you have the Farlow and Burge cemeteries in your list, is there anyway to determine where in this area she might have been buried. If she was in Kansas and returned, I suspect Simon Janes or Jeanes was buried there at a later date or had already left her, as I think he was actually much younger than he stated in 1880. Elisha Janes was also a shoemaker so I think they were related--any ideas how I can track down her grave site? There should have been a stone, but maybe no one in the family placed one on her grave. She had no children. S. Donath #48116482
Horatio Steele Thank you for the information! I'm working my way through the Congressional archives, but it's slow going--I've had hundreds transferred to me, and I like to find as much as I can. I appreciate your finding this for me!
