Bio and Links
Bio Photo I believe that Find A Grave is helpful in discovering one's ancestors as well as helping others to find their Ancestors. It also is a great way to honor those who have gone before us.

The names I am researching are Wilson, Conaway, Baker and Mason in West Virginia. The families of Dew and Smallwood in Virginia & Maryland. In Pennsylvania are the Neusbaum, Evert, Witherow, Rosenberry, Kuhn, Crider and Over Families.

You created the memorial for my Great-great Grandfather, thank you! I'd like to request a transfer if you're not also related to this person.

RE: Mary Conaway Wilson
Thanks for your reply. If I ever find anything, I will share it with you. I also think the Wilsons are difficult - too many people in WV with the same name!

Catherine/Mary Conaway
Hello, MDG. I wonder if you would share some info with me if you have it.

I found Thomas' 3 wives on another site which also showed that Catherine was the mother of Mary (my GGgrandmother).

Then I did some math and started questioning whether Catherine could be Mary's mother. Mary married Joshua Wilson in 1862 and both of their ages were listed as 21 (meaning she was born in 1841). Most censuses also show 1841 as do other records.

Catherine was born abt 1831 according to the 1850 census, making her 10 yrs. old when Mary was born in 1841. Even if we go with the 1860 census which estimates her birth as 1828, she would have been only 13 when Mary was born.

Do you think Mary could actually be the child of the first wife? Also, do have any info on where Mary was after Joshua died in 1901? I found more than 1 Mary Wilson in Kansas (which would make sense since Emera Ellsworth was there) but there's not enough info to know if she's the right Mary Wilson.

I would appreciate whatever info you could give me.

Your Find A Grave Memorial #138266359 is a duplicate of Memorial #122015912 which was placed on Find A Grave the year prior to yours. Would you please combine yours with this one as it has links attached. Thanks for your help.

Aubrey Bickett #88235413
Aubrey & Judy Bickett's only child, Leta Berberich, has asked me to request transfer of management of her father's memorial #88235413 to me (F-A-G Member #47538864) if you would be so willing. The reason is that Leta and I have bios, pictures and parent linkages we want to incorporate. Aubrey & Judy were our next-door farm neighbors and best friends of my parents for more than 50 years, and I am doing genealogical research on Aubrey's mother Nellie Maulsby and her tragic story.
Thank you for your consideration of this request.
