Bio and Links
Bio Photo 2016 season is over here in Ohio. Everything is white. This is the time of year that I get more done on the computer with genealogy. I did a lot of work on my Ward side and hope to continue it into 2017. Nettle Creek Cemetery is where I spent my time this summer. It is one of my Ward's family burial places. I plan on placing flowers on their grave for 2017 to honor them. Come join me there.

RE: William King 6664950
I don't know what is involved with supporting an existing site. I am descended from William and Nancy's son, John, who with his brother Victor moved to Madison, Indiana in 1817.

Anyhow....I think you are doing a wonderful job, but if it is a lot of work, I would be happy to help....although I live in California (smile)

Hi Helen,
Can you please tell me where you found info on place of birth? If you can send me that data / scan of document, that would be great. I'll add it to the memorial when I get it and to my personal files. Thank you! I will decline the edit until I hear from you - then add it asap.
Enjoy your weekend!

Re Moss
I am researching the Moss Family. My connection
is through Lucy Ann Moss Sandefur. Spouse of
Henry Charles Sandefur.
In This Search, it tells Lucy Ann Was born
April 20th 1817. Henderson Co Kentucky.
Her Parent's According to Ancestry are John and
Nancy Ann Kelly. This record was right so far on
the birth and death of John Moss. 1761-1835.
Nancy was born according to Ancestry in
Granville Co Nth Carolina. It pulled back John's
parents were Reuben Benjamin Eaton Moss Oct 10th
1738-Feb 10th 1819. And Martha Ann Jordan.
Feb 15th 1750-she passed in 1815 in Granville Co
Virginia. I would greatly appericate any help with info you might have I'm really flustrated with these pay geneology sites. for when you add information some of these contributors get really nasty. Thank-you

Eliza Steinberger Pence 167705964 - Addendum
Oops! Louisa married Alexander in 1842, not 1843 and the divorce was filed Aug. 19, not the 18th. My apologies for the typos.

Thank you again,
Sylvia - who must get more coffee now....

Eliza Steinberger Pence 167705964
I'm pretty certain that this memorial actually belongs to Louisa M. Steinbarger Pence. Eliza may be a nickname?

Louisa/Eliza was born April 23, 1825 in Urbana Township to David Steinbarger (39861247) and Elizabeth Lydia Pence (39861316). She died Jan. 16, 1907.

She was married to Alexander Pence (159514521), my 2nd great-grandfather, Mar. 3, 1843 to 1863. Louisa filed for divorce Aug. 18, 1863 - he had started another family with Sarah Ann Sifers (11585227) before divorcing Louisa and marrying Sarah (my 2nd great-grandmother). Yeah...what can I say...if it weren't for them, I wouldn't be here....

I have posted 2 obits that might help if you need additional information:

The above numbers in parenthesis are the Find A Grave Memorial numbers.

Best wishes and Happy Holidays!

Adkins Cemetery
Hello. I noticed you've created several memorials for people buried in the Adkins Cemetery, Campbell County, TN. My husband's ancestors are members of this Adkins family, and we've been trying unsuccessfully to find the Adkins Cemetery. Can you tell me any information on how to find this cemetery?

Helen, I'm embarrassed to say that I've lost the correction you'd like me to make. My computer has been done. Could you send it to me again? I'll do it immediately. I love Find A Grave and want to keep it accurate! I'm sorry for the mixup on my part. Geri

David Fleming
I am updating Mr. Fleming's memorial as you requested. If you are related to him and would like transfer of his memorial to you, I am more than happy to do so. I think I may have a photo of his headstone as well--I can check. Please let me know if you wish his transfer. I was glad to see the addition of his obituary to his memorial. Thanks you.

Jacob Franklin Evans Find A Grave Memorial# 127971004
Jacob Franklin Evans is my 2nd great grandfather. I found your name on his memorial. Research by my uncle, who is now deceased, has his father as John B Evans and his mother as Catharine Hoover. The death certificate photo loaded on the memorial site is consistent with regards to his father. However, in my research I have come across two Jacob Fs of very similar age and from VA. One with parents John B and Catharine was probably born in Rockingham Co VA while Daniel D and Mary are the parents of the one in Shenandoah Co VA. Do you have a source for the birthplace mentioned on the memorial site that you could direct me to?
