Bio and Links
Hi FINDAGRAVERS. Love researching. Especially family names like WALKER, RILEY, CRAIL, WATKINS, ASHURST, PURDY, BERRY, WILSON, BATES, POWELL, DAY, LINTON, RANDOLPH, LEWIS, WARNER, TALIAFERRO, THORTON, VINING and many earlier links. I am willing to transfer to relatives of someone within 3 generations but not of my own family listings and their ancestors.I don't get to get online very often so my response is not as often as I would like. Thank you for info you may share and your patience. Good Gravehunting!

McGill Family
Thank you for all your help with the McGill family memorials! I apologize if I've sent a lot of edits. My first cousin, twice removed, Ted McGill, has researched the family for over 30 years and traced them back to Scotland. His information is very accurate so I am trying to transfer some of that over to Find a Grave. Thanks again!

Emily Watkins parentage
Hi Karen,

Thank you for the wonderful work you have done in showing the Watkins genealogy on Find A Grave. I am descended from Emily Watkins (Find A Grave Memorial# 50034918), likely the daughter of William Arnold Watkins and Irene Lorena Wallace. A descendant of William Wallace Watkins and I just connected through autosomal DNA testing. Do you know if any documentation exists that supports Emily's parentage?

Thank you!

It is I that needs to thank you for the creation of the memorial for Col Francis Thornton, II. I have sponsored the memorial because he is one of my 6th GGFs.

Karen, Samuel Martin son of Rebecca and John Martin isn't t buried at Oakland Cemetery. He is buried at Highland Cemetery in Ft Mitchell. This is true because he was my great- grandfather , which makes Rebecca Crail my great great grandmother. If you have info of John W Martin. Death and location of burial and death I would appreciate ANY info on Crail or Martin you may have . You may contact me on e- mail ,please.
Thank you.

The photo posted for Michael M. Willard bears no resemblance to him. May I ask where you obtained the photo? Given a few days I can provide a photo or photos that actually look like Mike. He is my cousin. Additonal information: He was father to Christopher Willard and brother of Paula Rose Willard Britton (deceased), uncle to Beau Willard Britton (deceased).
