Permission Granted to download or save for use at your discretion, any photos taken to fulfill F.A.G. Requests, or any photo of my direct family I have posted. Please attribute me if posted on those "paid" sites, ie Ancestry.|
*update Nov 2013, now that Ancestry OWNS/has purchased Find a Grave, your Photos are now THEIR photos, as well as all the genealogical date we have all posted on here. Ancestry is not stupid!!
Photos of the World War II crewmen were given by their family members and they shared them for the Memorials. *Please do not take them unless you are a family member!
Genealogist, 30 plus years, DAR, Colonial Dames XVIIC, Mayflower. Will do digital pics of Fayette, Scott,and Bourbon cos only. As volunteers for F A G, my partner Clinton Slayton and I often image all in the cemetery. We are be happy to transfer anyone of your family to you if they are not part of our lines.
We also have a private research project called the "Sharon Belle B-17 Memorial Association",to identify the American crewmen of the B-17's flown from England during World War II, particularly "The Sharon Belle". She crashed on 30 Nov 1943 near Helmdon, England, early morning at 0819 hours, on a mission to Germany. The mission was scrubbed due to bad weather.
The ten brave men our Country lost were:
Lt. William Murray Holland
Capt. Richard W. Pugh, new Commanding Officer.
1st Officer, Leighton D. Patterson
2nd Lt. William S. Munro
T/Sgt Thomas D. Glaspell
T/Sgt Billy Freeman
S/Sgt Dean Landfear
S/Sgt Charles E. Slayton (uncle of Clinton's)
S/Sgt Harry A. Scott
S/Sgt Henry P. Brannan
Crewmen were often assigned to fly on other B-17's with other crews so there is an overlap with various planes.
Another research project is to identify the crewmen of the World War II,B-17 "Hell From Heaven Men", that flew under Capt. Richard Ezzard of the 19th Bomb Group. The last mission was in the Pacific with Australian navigator Allen Thompson. Except for Mr. Thompson most of the crewmen are now deceased.
Any information on any of these crewmen is welcomed.

If they were in the Douglas county area, I can try to see if the library has any information on them. Can you give me their full names and dates?
With all this snow and now ice/sleet, not sure when it will be though!

I transfered them over. Since they are your family, I will let you update their memorials.
If you would like John and Albert also, just let me know!!

|Neil Gest||RE: Soule Kindred|
I have not received my 2014 issue yet. There was an article in the DEC 2102 (Vol 78 No. 4) issue of the Mayflower Quarterly by Louise Throop on Mary Bucket & Geo. Soule. Louise is an active member of Soule Kindred, so perhaps you will meet her. For me, this is important stuff, considering all the conjecture and research as to our Soule origins. I was corresponding with Frank Soule on this issue a few years back and the fact that Dna comparisons between American males and the English Soule line did not match up.
|Neil Gest||RE: Soule Kindred|
I am a bit late in responding - Happy 2014. Glad to hear that you have rejoined Soule Kindred; say hi to Judy when you see her. Haven't done much in the way of family history this past year. Other priorities get in the way. Let me know of your impressions of the association. I am interested in the ongoing research into the origins of George Soule & Mary Beckett. Last I heard is that they both could be Dutch in origins, although not nationality - possibly Walloons or Huguenots. Pretty interesting. Hope you winter weather dissipates soon.
Best regards, Neil
|Susan Bowman||RE: Lazarus Dodson|
Yes, I am related to the Dodson line. Jethro Dodson married Lucy Slayden and I recently got my niece's DAR app approved through Jethro Dodson to George Dodson born 1737. I do own the book (Volume 1) you refer to but I am currently in Salt Lake City doing research and will also attend Roots Tech. I will look tomorrow at the library for you to see if the children of Lazarus are mentioned in the book. I cannot tell you how much I respect Clinton Slayton and his work and yours as well.
As you know Jethro Dodson married Lucy Slayden so you and are distant cousins!
The Raleigh you refer to is the brother of my George Dodson who was the father of Jethro.
I have access to my family tree notes but not the actual documents and this is what I have in them:
Maury Co., Tennessee Wills and Settlement Book B page 1 you find Lazarus Dottson
My cousin, Debbie Frantz, and myself are pleased to announce the placement
of a Revolutionary War commemorative marker for Lazarus Dodson, born about
1760 in Virginia, died between 1819 and 1826 in Claiborne County, Tn., the
son of Raleigh Dodson and his wife Elizabeth or Mary (Mary was Raleigh's
wife when he died), last name unknown. Lazarus Dodson married Jane, last
name unknown, about 1779. His marker is being placed in the Cottrell (also
called the Johnson) Cemetery, on the land he owned in Claiborne County.
This land was subsequently sold by his heirs in 1826 to David Cottrell, who
is also buried there along with his many descendants. The Cottrell family
has graciously allowed us to mark Lazarus's grave, one of several unmarked
graves in the cemetery. The ceremony is open to all and will take place in
the cemetery, which is now located on Lincoln Memorial University property
in the southwest corner of the campus, at 2PM on Saturday, June the 11th.
Our family has prepared a document about the life of Lazarus Dodson which
will be read by Debbie Frantz, his descendant, a member of the DAR who
joined through Lazarus. Debbie's husband, George, a SAR member, has been
instrumental in completing the paperwork and paving the way for Lazarus's
stone. We welcome all descendants and anyone else interested. This event
will be in conjunction with the Cumberland Gap Jamboree which will be taking
place during this timeframe in areas near the Gap. Lazarus lived just below
the village of Cumberland Gap on current day Tipprell Road. A copy of the
document about the life of Lazarus Dodson is being contributed as a gift to
Lincoln Memorial University by the family, along with a complete census of
the cemetery and known genealogical information about those buried there.
We would like to thank the Sons of the American Revolution for making this
I hope the above helps and I would love to know what you have regarding Lucy Slayden and any documentation you would share with me. Please contact me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Sherry||RE: Dr. William Calloway Dobkins|
I am not related. If you click on the photo, I put the info on the source and anything written on the back of the photo on that page. I am able to pull up his death certificate on Familysearch. Father is listed as A. Dobkins and mother as Mary Neil. The informant's signature looks liks B.S. Dobkins, but could be R.S., I guess. Let me know if you need anything else. Sorry I couldn't help more.

I noticed you reported a problem with nk on that. I will tell you my reason, I'm disabled and can't travel far.I can only do ones within a mile of my house and only when my husband or children can accompany me and drive. A trip to my mothers afford the very few in Lexington I did take of my relatives, so I took some for requests. Now I ask you- where you feel entitled to question any contributors involvement or contributions to Find A Grave? I find such reporting problems on photo requests and contributors profiles to be extremely rude and condescending. Furthermore, I did not have to give a reason, but occasionally, I do have to educate the uneducated.

|Amanda Stauffer-Bragg||RE: Jackie Meyers|
Correction :I made a note on Benjamin Slayden's page it reads ...."ABNER WILSON SLAYDEN" ...MAY NOT BE SON OF BENJAMIN SLAYDEN"....I CANT PROVE THIS IS TRUE.AS THE SAME NO BODY HASN'T PROVEN IT WASN'T TRUE..
|Amanda Stauffer-Bragg||RE: Abner Wilson Slayden|
I'm getting information from a book left to me after my moms passing 9/18/2013 Kathleen "Slayden" Tatum in an old chest.My Name is in the book :)
The book was copyright,1997
The Descendants of Arthur Slayden
For Aunt Tonie(Mary Altoona Slayden),who was so proud of the Slayden family and,who did a myriad of research and genealogy many years ago.Our thanks for keeping records for all of us that followed.
For several years,I have been researching and recording the history of our line of the Slayden family.Thanks to the work of our Aunt Tonie,Mary Slayden Green,I had a place to begin.I also used Arthur J.Slayton's book The Slaton Family.Then in 1996,Bob Slayden gave me the name of an author or recent publications about the family. This author has done extensive and accurate research on the entire Slayton/Slayden family both in America and in England.For any of you interested in more information, I highly recommend his books.I have included a list of his publications and his name and address in the back of the book.
I have included some photographs from my album of our ancestors.Some of you may find family resemblences.
I have tried to prove all of the names and facts in this book,but would appreciate any corrections and additions that you might have.
