Find-A-Grave has been instrumental in finding valuable information and connections that probably would have taken many years -- perhaps decades -- to find otherwise. I am deeply indebted to each photographer and every person that has taken the time to add details about their ancestors.
I have been doing serious genealogy research since 2004 and try to post documentable information and photographs with reliable sources. Accuracy is of the utmost importance! If you have something to contribute to a memorial that I manage, please contact me by using the "Edit" tab from the memorial, and then use "Suggest a correction" to send your information.
I'm a 15th Generation American, directly descended from Richard Warren, my 11th Great-Grandfather, and James Chilton, my 12th Great-Grandfather, both of whom were passengers on the ship, Mayflower, that arrived in 1620, and my progenitor, William Morse, my 10th Great-Grandfather, who came on the ship, James, arriving in 1635.
My ancestors’ roots are in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Ontario, Canada and Western Europe. My maternal lines are traceable back to the Mayflower through my 4th Great-Grandmother, Betsy Blackman.

RE: Hannah Cornell Yes it is nice to finally know what happened to Hannah. And the information I got was from another researcher so I am going by her word as she is the one who has actually walked that cemetery and knows quite abit about it. I can't remember her name, but when I figure out where I put that information I will let you know. Melody
RE: Horace Monroe Morse Family Hi Catherine, Yes that is correct cousin. She married an Edward Sebastian Moore on 29 Sep 1891 in Travers City, Grand Travers Co. MI. They never went west to the Snohomish Co. WA area with her folks in 1907. Instead they went to Detroit, Wayne Co. MI and raised their family. They were blest with 7 children, all of them I have not found all the information on them that I need. If you need what I have just ask, will be glad to send it to you. Take care, Melody
Horace Monroe Morse Family Catherine, Horace and Anna Maria Thacker-Morse had 8 children: 1. William Delos 1868-1955 2. Lila Adelia 1869-1911 3. Winnie (Minnie) Matilda 1871-1967 4. Charles Monroe 1875-1926 5. Orin Dewitt 1876-1946 6. Arthur Garfield 1880-1950 7. Harry Logan 1885-1988 Winnie stayed behind because she had married a man by the name of Edward S. Moore b. 12 July 1878 in Bayham, Elgin, Ontario, Canada d. 25 Sept. 1948 in Detroit, Wayne Co. MI They married on Sept 29, 1891 in Traverse, Grand Traverse Co. MI. Winnie was born 1 Aug 1871 in Richland, Defiance Co. OH and died on 6 Jan 1967 in Detroit, Wayne Co. MI. I haven't been able to locate their final resting place as of yet. All of Horace and Anna's children are buried either at the GAR cemetery in Snohomish or the one child Arthur is buried at the Woodlawn Cemetery in Ferndale, Whatcom Co. WA site. Most of Arthur's family is there. The only other one that I haven't found is Harry Logan Morse and where he and his wife are buried at. I know from census that they lived reall close to the coast of WA,
Hannah Cornell Catherine Jo, I have found a burial place for her but was told by another researcher that she was born in 1829 in Chemung, Chemung Co. NY and before Henry and Selena could move to MI she drown in the Chemung river in June 1845. She is buried in the Hicks Cemetery, Van Etten Junction, Chemung Co. NY. I believe that this could have caused Henry and Selena to separate and go their own way before leaving for MI.
Hannah Cornell Looked through the cemetery pretty thoroughly for a couple of hours. Sorry, we could not find Hannah. There were a number of other other Cornells in different areas of the cemetery including some whose headstones were, unfortunately, unreadable. If there were later Cornell relatives buried there, it might narrow the area in which to look for Hannah's grave.
