Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm researching the Rev David Rice line in VA, KY and TN; and the Philip Walker line in MA-RI-CT-NY-WI. If you have, or need, information about these families, please contact me.

I'm a cantor, organist and conductor, and I enjoy photographing old gravestones.

Find-a-Grave offers an opportunity to share information on an unprecedented scale. Much like Google's project to digitize every book ever published, this site aspires to document the lives of everyone who has gone before us! How cool would THAT be?

RE: john mclaughlin
The correct cemetery is Knights Burial Ground, which is located in the back of Oak Grove and is far older than Oak Grove cemetery. Since the memorial in Oak Grove was posted in 2008, while the one I posted is from 2010, I asked Deb to switch her memorial to the correct cemetery. The photos are of the same stone, but mine might be more readable. When she switches the memorial to Knights Burial Ground, I'll add my photo to her memorial.

Thanks for your reply. I guess the information was taken from a book or something. Joyce

Thank you. I found the Biggerstaff book on Alibris for a very low price and I will write the photo contributor.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know if the person who submitted the photo is researching McGhees? If he/she is, can you put me in touch?

RE: wm mclaughlin
Thanks. Too bad I couldn't find it but there are a lot of stones in that cemetery that have been lost over time. I found several that were partially or completely buried but many more are still lost.

RE: mclaughlin girls
Joann, I don't know if you saw my message from yesterday but I went to the site of the McLaughlin infant girls gravestone last night to see if I missed anything.

The stone for the infant girls is larger than most infants, perhaps twice as large as I typically see. And their stone is 10 steps away from the stone for Charles McLaughlin. But I wasn't able to find anything on the other faces or sides of the stone for the girls and no other graves nearby that might be William's. Sorry.

RE: mclaughlin girls

I could make a trip to the cemetery to look over the girl's stone again. Perhaps one of the other faces on the obelisk has information that I missed.

I did notice that Charles McLaughlin is two rows over from the girls in the same section and you haven't linked him to anyone. I did a search on and there is a David Boling on there (DavidBoling102) that has an extensive McLaughlin family tree. He identified Charles as William's son. There are several family pictures in David's family tree as well.

The census records confirm that Charles is William's son and considering that the two girls are two rows away from Charles, I think it's a reasonable assumption that they are also William's daughters. Also, the girls were born between William's oldest and youngest children also indicating that they might've been his children.

If you are interested in contacting David and don't have an subscription, let me know and I might be able to get his Email address.

I'll revisit the location of Charles' stone soon and will look for something I missed.
