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 encourage relatives to post old photos to memorials and 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 currently working on editing and updating families and relationships in Fairfax City Cemetery in Fairfax Va, and the surrounding area.

My files are now available to me and I save everything posted.

(1)I accept all corrections from posters - If it is not correct, it can be changed!! Simple as that!!

(2) I never post a memorial or grave that I won't research further as to parents, siblings, etc.

RE: Benjamin Rupert/Lucinda McCurdy
She was living at Jackson, Huntington, Indiana in the 1860 census...

RE: Benjamin Rupert/Lucinda McCurdy
I haven't ever heard that before. Could she have confused the wives last names? Is she a meticulous proofreader? Some people are detail oriented and some, well, not so much... ;-)

RE: Benjamin Rupert/Lucinda McCurdy
Yes, in the 1860 census when she is married to Benjamin Rupert, they spell her name Lucinda. I don't know why Sheryl has his second wife's name Lucinda Wonsetler. She didn't have a way to ask her questions, so I don't know why she thinks that is her name. Does a Lucinda Wonsetler even exist?

Benjamin Rupert/Lucinda McCurdy
Hi Anne,

I am having a hard time locating a grave for Lucinda McCurdy. There's one in Pennsylvania, but I calculated her age at death and it comes out in 1832 and she was said to have been born around '37 unless that date was a mistake. I only have one census to go by.

Can you put the text caption of the photos in the bio by suggesting a correction to me? This is not something that should be added with a photo

Two thumbs up
Just read your bio and it is so refreshing after reading so many others. Good job!

RE: Ruppert Family
I looked through the names of the interns, and there were Shroyers buried there, even though his last wife wasn't there. I think she remarried after Ben passed away (he married some young women -- 15-20 years younger than him) so that would make sense that she would remarry and be buried with her last husband. So knowing the Shroyers are there too adds to the confirmation. The funny thing is, on Ancestry, most of the people are mixed up between the two Benjamin Rupperts and have it wrong--grrr... I don't know where to write a comment to tell all of them--lolol There's quite a few!
