Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 65 years old and love doing family research. I live in Alvin, TX and love to fish. I have 3 little dogs that I adore. I believe in God and Country and the men & women who defend it. I'm also old, Irish and not shy. Have a great day.

I want everything to be as correct as I can make it. I do this out of respect for them and who they were. As I am also researching family I try to have the same consideration for others as I expect from them. Even with my own family if someone see's something they think is wrong I'd like to know it and then I may or may not change it according to what I have and what I know. I've learned not even gov documents are always correct nor name spellings on them. So good thing I like fishing because in some cases it takes a lot of it to find out anything or another family member in this up to their necks with lots of resources. I have two of those in my family.... God Bless all those dedicated to obtaining correct information and supporting and working together on sites like Find A Grave and Ancestry.

One thing that bothers me is people who add photo's of stones at such an angle or distance that it can not be read or with flowers obstructing the information on the stone. To me if the stone can't be read DON'T PUT IT ON THE MEMORIAL. The stone has important information on it that we need as verification of information. To me take flowers off and get over the stone and close enough to be able to read it in the photo. The stone is the most important thing, not the flowers on it.

Thanks for the information. Up until Feb. 18, 2014, I was a home healthcare worker taking care of her husband before he passed. Chet lived to be almost 103, but his mind was very clear and had me do some research for him on his family. He and his daughter gave me a lot of information on both families. Thanks again for you information.

RE: Re: Henry Parker / St Mary The Virgin Churchyard
I was able to get up to see my Mother (90 years & doing well) this weekend and found some pictures she & my father had taken in England 1995. They went to my Dad's GGF's church. It was the same name of church, but is located in the village of St. Mary's in the Marsh, very near New Romney.

I've attached the pictures they took of Henry and Anne's memorial to new records in the Marsh.

They even have a picture of the plaque mentioned. As well, nothing I've ever heard or seen suggested he was Rector in Canterbury, though he was ordained there (probably at the cathedral?).

Could the info you have belong to this church instead?

Cadwalader Morris
Good Morning, Roxanna
You mentioned an inventory of Cadwalader's estate after he had passed. Where did you find that inventory? He is my ancestor also and I would really like to get that information.
Thanks so much!

RE: Your Loss
Thank you Roanna for the thoughts and prayers. It means a lot to us. We knew she was going to pass away from the cancer but it was quicker then we thought it would be. We hoped we would have had more time but God had other plans and took her home. We are still trying to deal with it and taking it day by day. Thanks again.

Hugs, Melissa

Re: Henry Parker / St Mary The Virgin Churchyard

Ancestry just popped up a hint today about my GGGF Henry here, pointing to a Find A Grave entry you created (thank you). We always thought he was buried in St. Mary's in the Marsh churchyard near New Romney, Kent, England. As that was the parish he was rector at for the 44 years the marker mentions.

Is it possible he has two markers, or can you shed any light why he would have a stone in Canterbury? I know his father lived there and a sister too I believe.

When did you see this if I may ask?

Thank you for any hints you could give.

Best Regards,
Gord Parker,

RE: Susannah Margartha Dieffenbaugh Hull
My connection is through Maj. Peter T. Hull who married Susanna Margarita Dieffenbaug on Nov. 25, 1750 in Lancaster, Penn. Later moved to Crabbottom, Pendleton, (Highland County) Va. Susanna's father was Johann Martin Dieffenbach who was born in Germany in 1649 and immigrated to Lancaster, Penn. where he died in 1716.

There is an interesting "Google Play" eBook (Free) entitled A History of Highland County, Virginia that goes into great detail about the pioneer families who settled this mountain area. Because of the limited number of families there was much intermarriage within the various families. Therefore, you keep seeing the same family names over and over again. Two of the families are the Hulls (Hohl) and the Trimbles. The book is worth a quick survey to see if any of the names apply to your family.

Nice to hear from you Roanna.
