Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born Annabelle Mary Henderson w/o Jesse Rupert (Columbiana County) and only child born to John Cassell Henderson born Newport, Kentucky and Mary Beaton Jenkins born Glasgow, Scotland. Jesse Rupert is s/o J Vernon Rupert born Columbiana Co, Ohio and Mary Paden.

Only paternal roots in America, I follow a path to Fairfax Co Virginia (grandmother's name Pritchartt).

Some interesting facts discovered about my family:
Henderson, Nevada named after my group.
The Hendersons still operate the oldest family owned Drug Store in America to date called "Henderson's Drug Store" founded 1841 by Osborne Henderson in Glasgow, Howard Co Missouri. The oldest Henderson in my group, lived to be 104, Dr. Joseph Lewis Henderson as did his sister.

I have no biological connection to Ohio and
will transfer any memorial in Columbiana/Mahoning Co Ohio to persons with interest.
I check and work on this daily, update edits and will respond to email/corrections, etc promptly. Please note as I have posted many memorials from the cemetery index volumes, Audrey Allison has brought them to life by walking the cemeteries, photographing and posting headstones to thousands of the memorials. It is a joint effort by many.
Please do not ask for a transfer then "disappear from the face of earth"!

To all who so righteously remind us the primary purpose of Find a Grave is "GRAVE REGISTRATION", and then "boringly" recite in your bio the FAG rules... yes we get it! To the group I work with, (look at my friend's list) it is a mere "starting point" as we all work together, share, and seek to know more about the folks, what they looked like and where they lived as we "register their graves". All of us will go to great lengths to find out more!. .. to sum this up they are "NOT JUST A NAME ON THE A STONE"!

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS 2014 YEAR - Two new stones shine from the "Pritchartt" plot in Bellefontaine Cemetery in St Louis Mo for the first time...

May 20, 2014
Placed a military marker on an unmarked grave... After a long search for military records for a great uncle who was a Conf Soldier, and alas, finally secured them and accepted for a military headstone placed on his grave after 114 years beneath an unmarked grave!! He was Pvt John Norvell Caskie. Thanks to Angela Smythe who had an interest in the Caskie family and provided a copy of military record that made this all possible.

Aug 18, 2014 - Stone placed on great grandmother Maria L Bingham Pritchartt's grave who died in 1859 from anemia. Stone is now set in plot St Louis Mo. She has rested for 155 years in an unmarked grave, but that will be no more. I guess that is why I was chosen to do what I do. Amen

I will sponsor ANYONE's memorial just to have additional photos uploaded. (It is well worth the $5.00 Find a Grave charge) Focus as of 11/9/2014 will be to review current memorials created, complete data as to birth, date, place, etc and to link/find parents, siblings or family. Just as in life, every memorial should be linked to family. And "friends" keep those edits coming my way as it helps so much identify all the folks at rest. 7/20/2015 currentlyworking on editing and updating families and relationships in Fairfax City Cemetery in Fairfax Va, and the surrounding area.

RE: Donna Zeigler #152150167
Hi Anne,

Thank you for getting back to me. I am not related to them either just addicted to genealogy and findagrave. I will hold off on updating the edit until you find something out. Have you had any response from the other person who set up the site for Donna Zeigler's Mother? (ie. what their source for the burial was?) Have a good weekend!

Thank you so much for posting the picture of Heinrich and wife on the Find A Grave Website. We are descendants of them and truly love seeing the pictures. We also loved seeing the headstone also. God Bless You for being the volunteer that you are. Thanks again. Janet

Harriett Taylor Davis memorial
First let me congratulate you on your recent progress and successes in the form of the new stones for your ancestors!
I thank you so much for your time and dedication to finding your own family and helping others to find theirs.
That said, thank you so much for your additions/corrections to Harriett Taylor Davis's memorial. I am glad that others are beginning to agree that Harriett and Mary King Davis are daughters of Priscilla Davis (nee King most likely) and Richard Windsor Davis, not Priscilla King Calvert. Do you have the sources that I used to prove this? I can give you the chancery case numbers if you wish. I'll just have to look them up. I found a chancery cause about Richard Windsor Davis as well that states he left the state, I only wish it said where he went. If you want any of this let me know.
Thank you again,
Kathy Davis-Page

Rock Hill Methodist, AKA Rockhill Meeting House
Hi Anne,

I've just posted some gravestone and cemetery pictures for Rockhill Methodist, also known as Rockhill Meeting House.
I might have to go back to try again on one or two I didn't post after I improve my abilities with off-camera flash for hard-to-read gravestones.
I posted an additional pic of the Edward Sterne stone, not because there was anything wrong with the one Mary took in 2005, but to show it's the same location but with the fence installed since your visit. Perhaps you might like to move her picture back up to the top?

Regarding the deed to the Rockhill church you posted, I don't think it pertains to the Rockhill Meeting House because it was already there by about 1800. As we understand that it was from its congregation that some members departed at some time in order to form Rockhill Baptist (leaving the Methodists behind), I think the reference could perhaps pertain to that new church. However the existing Rockhill Baptist Church hardly looks to me like a late 1800's structure -- I would have guessed more like 1950's. It was about 1955 when the Methodists merged with Ebenezer Methodist Church, and I suppose about then that the building fell into disuse.

RE: Walnut Hill Cemetery
Oh, I recognize that location. That's the farm which always had the white cows 10 years ago, next door to the farm on Mountain View Road which always had the black cows. Didn't know it was called Walnut Hill, nor that it had a family cemetery, but in Virginia that shouldn't be a surprise. It's 98 acres, with a very long private driveway, and owned by one of the Tolson families.
