Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in my family tree when I was a teenager which I am so glad about as I was able to ask my Grandmothers questions. One Grandma from Virginia and one from New York.
I have also asked several members of my family about our tree and then started genealogy research.
Which I have now been doing for many years for our family.
Also, I have for some years now been doing genealogy research for other people.
I also have several genealogy websites.
I like to visit cemeteries of course to visit my family who have passed but also when I can to post photographs of tombstones and memorials on this great site to help other people.

RE: Dunnavant
I just want to say thank you for all this help. Did Peter have any children by his first wife? I have found your Thelma now. All these people seem to have cared for one another so much, no wonder you hope to find them. If you know where Gladys is buried, do say but it was startling to realise no one had in their trees Peter's first wife.

You have been talking to me across the pond, as I am in England so without your help it would taken me rather a time to learn of these other people. I will keep you updated if I find out anymore and hope others will benefit from our discussions, maybe the very people you would like to find.

RE: Family connection?
I may have mistook your message on Lillian R (Smith) Cottrell as your relative if this is the case I do apologize for the mistake... A while back my mom ,and I were talking about her family and she told me that my grand mother had a sister Lillian which was news to me .So when I saw your message on Lillian's Find a Grave I thought this could solve a lot of problems I've run into. I do know Lillian R Cottrell is a relative because I found a Census showing one of my mother's sisters living in the Cottrell home her name was Helen Roberts ,but later married becoming a Durham... I'm sorry for my intrusion ,and do want to thank you for responding to my message....Sincerely Paul J. Pecori 111

a possible family connection
Hi Beth my name is Paul J. Pecori 111 I live in Watertown New York. I ve been family research since I retire in 2011 my father's is about complete start my mom's who just passed away this week, but anyway she is the daughter of Eunice P. Smith Roberts ,My mom's name is Phylona E. Roberts Pecori. I've in to a couple stumbling block I believe My Great Aunt Lillian and My Grandmother Eunice are the daughters of Gertrude Alley Smith, but unfortunately my grandmother's father William M. Smith appears to have married 3 times and back tracking through the records kind of coms up short on his first wife I believe to be Lillian's and Eunice 's mom Gertrude but can not find any records of Gertrude after 1900 . My Grandmother had a younger sister born in 1902 her name is Gertrude A. (Smith) Taylor. My Grand mother passed away in 14Feb1974 and my aunt Gertrude pass on in the !990's I was wondering if there is any information you might be willing to share with a possible Cousin... I would Like to thank in the mean time. Paul J. Pecori 111...Thanks Paul

Sorry to bother you again, I should have said that if Mr Carter was a veteran of the Civil War, then getting him a grave marker is cost free.

Hiram Carter
Hi Beth, I was in Oak Ridge Cemetery in South Boston, Virginia yesterday for the third time in the last month. I saw where you had requested a photo or Mr Carter's grave marker a few years ago and have tried all three times I have been in there to find his grave with no success. His marker may be gone if it ever existed. There are people who an help you get a marker for him if that is the case. There is no cost involved, other than the cost to set the stone. With your being a direct descendant of his, the process would be fairly simple to get a marker for him, but first you need to know exactly where his grave is by contacting someone with the city possibly to help you with that.

Best regards,
Darrell Landrum

John Firestine
I contacted a family member regarding your question because I needed some confirmation and some help. Here is her answer
Hi Carol,

You are correct - we have not been able to confirm or deny that Wilhelm Feuerstein/Firestine had a brother named John. (Even according to Dr. Peter Feuerstein.)

By the way, if Beth Bond's John Firestine was born in Germany, then he is most likely not related. Our line of Feuerstein/Firestines are not from Germany, but are from RUSSIA.


It might be interesting to know more information from Beth Bond about her "John Firestine". (i.e. Birth & death dates and places.) I looked at Peter's tree from 2011 and he does list some Johann/Johannes/John Feuerstein. You could suggest that if Beth has access to ancestry.com that she search for family trees that belong to Dr. Peter Feuerstein. Tell her to search for Heinrich Feuerstein born between 1836 -1839 and married to Catharina. The trees have names such as a "Feuerstein-Firestone Stammbaum 4 July 2011", "Feuerstein Stammbaum 8 Oct 2008".
