|Bio and Links|
I'm retired. I've been doing genealogy since about 1991. Like many genealogists I enjoy walking through old cemeteries and wondering about the lives of those who are laid to rest below my feet.|
Contact me, VIA THE EDIT TAB on a memorial,
if I have entered info of a friend or loved one and there is an error to be fixed or additions to be made. I welcome a POLITE request for changes, corrections, etc. Again a POLITE request.
PLEASE USE THE TAB on the specific memorial to send or suggest corrections or ask questions. DEMANDS OR RUDENESS WILL BE IGNORED.
REMEMBER THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY REASON FOR RUDENESS OR TELLING EACH OTHER HOW TO DO THEIR JOB! Politeness goes much further.

|Susan Hill||Re: Henry Embree|
Sorry, I am neither a relative, nor do I know any details regarding this man. I have been volunteering my time and efforts photo-documenting West lawn Cemetery. You may try contacting the Henryetta Public Library to see if they can locate information in the cardex or microfilm of his history in Henryetta. Henryetta has a long coal industry history. Good luck in your research.
Find A Grave Volunteer,
Hi FamilySearcher. Your autoedit suggestion from Nov. 28 was to add wife Jessie and remove parents Albert and Jane. Although the link to Jessie looked right from the research I did, the removal of the parents seemed like it would remove correct info (the death certificate listed them.) So, rather than just approve your suggested edit, which would have been one-third right, I declined the suggested edit, and added the spouse link, and added a note back to you to see if you had info that those were the wrong parents. Does that make sense? Sorry this got so complicated - let me know if you have info or research that contradicts what I've got posted now. Take care, *Janice

Source Publication Code: 9143
Primary Immigrant: Croasdale, Thomas
Annotation: Covers 27,500 immigrants from the years 1618-1878, with excellent index. Similar lists are in Boyer, nos. 0702, 0714, 0717, and 0720.

WOW... I was supposed to be on that ship. Not too many people know about or remember that incident. AZ3 Padget was in my place with the Helo detachment.
|Deb McCallister||RE: Mary Agnes C Baird|
Aunt Agnes married (Uncle) John Henry McCallister and they didn't have any children.
*The gentleman from Ireland that gave me some family info also has some letters that were written by Baird family members and sent back to Ireland. Those are treasures! He told me about one and it was fun to hear how they described the Carthage area from back then.
|Deb McCallister||RE: James Baird, Carthage, Il|
My Aunt Agnes was the granddaughter of James and the daughter of Alexander. The Baird gentleman who gave me a lot of info actually lives in Ireland. I had Glasgow down first but he had records that showed the other town as the birth town. I can't remember his name now as it has been some time since we corresponded.
|Deb McCallister||James Baird, Carthage, Il|
Sometimes family give the wrong info when the headstones are made up (found that in a couple of my own family). I was given the info on his birth and death from a family member who I trust. I am also related to the Bairds and have worked on their ancestry for awhile.
|Claudia Davenport-Sullivan||David Potts & Alice Croasdale|
Memorial# 63486604 and # 63486782 – David & Alice (Croasdale) Potts did not have daughter Sarah; nor was a "Sarah" mentioned in his Will dated 13 Nov 1730, Proved 26 Nov 1730, Inventoried 4 Dec 1730, Will Book E page 142. ~~ Correct translation for “8th month" is October for the birth of Alice Croasdale; prior to Sept 1752 the 1st month of the year was March, 11th and 12th were Jan and Feb of the following year, creating the system of doubling dating the years. See Julian Calendar and Penn’s “Great Laws …” Unfortunately, people are using F-A-Gravefor their factual ancestry information and these two memorials are not correct.
|Joyce Potts Hoffmann||RE: Jonas Potts|
I will be happy to share information I have. Jonas was my 7th great grandfather. Do you have email address I can send it to?
