Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in NJ. I have lived here all my life. I have been doing my family genealogy since 1996. I love walking through and transcribing cemeteries.

I think findagrave is excellent, but when you wish to add memorials, please make sure that someone else has NOT already added that person. Duplicate memorials are confusing to researchers. If you discover a memorial has already been created by someone else and you are family to the person added, please contact the submitter for a transfer.

The cemeteries that I have added memorials from include: Canton Baptist Church Cemetery in Canton, NJ; First Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Salem, NJ; Baptist Church Cemetery in Salem, NJ; East View Cemetery in Salem, NJ; St. Mary's Cemetery in Salem, NJ; The Old Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Greenwich, Cumberland Co. NJ; and The New Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Greenwich, Cumberland Co. NJ.

I usually honor requests for memorial transfers if the memorial is a relative of the requester, but please do not expect large numbers of memorials to be transferred at a moments notice. I will transfer them as MY time allows.

I am willing to add corrections and or changes to memorials that have been added by me, but please make sure to tell me where the information came from. You will be cited as providing the information and any issues resulting from the information submitted will be attributed to you.

Please do NOT add anything to my family memorials if you do not have factual information or state that the information is a theory.

Thank you.

John and Flora Fahrner from Scotland
Hi Dawn!
My mum and I were talking today for some reason about some ancestors she always grew up hearing about. I decided to google them and found you!

In short, we are related through Flora Shaw. Flora was the sister of my great-great grandmother. My mum was born in Glasgow in 1959, daughter of Muriel Shaw Gray Dias. My mum said that they had always heard what a sad day it was when Flora and her children left Scotland. They knew they went to Salem, but my grandma never knew if it was Mass. or NC...didn't even know of Salem, NJ at the time. They knew they were glassblowers? My mum has some photos of a few of John and Flora's children, specifically of Elizabeth born in France and her little brother. My mum was unsure of who they really were until I googled the family today and found all your information here on John and Flora's children. I was amazed!

I cannot find your email address, but my mum and I would love to connect with you. My mum actually lives in New Jersey (Freehold). She is I can be reached at

Thanks for all your time inputting information here! Hope we can compare genealogy sometime, my mum and I would love to see more pictures of the family.

Laura Baner
In your comments about Albert Baner you mention his daughter Laura. She married Charles F. Smith and they had three children - Leonard M., Charles F. Jr. (I believe he's a Jr.), and Harriet. Laura died 8 Apr 1894 and I have her as interred in East View Cemetery.

RE: Elizabeth Green Davis Day
Elizabeth was Eliabeth Husted Green Davis Day. If I find something of interest, I'll let you know.

Elizabeth Green Davis Day
She was my G-grandmother. You had quite a bit of specific information - are you a relative or just very informed?

Trying to find out if this is Myers, not Myres
and if the birth year is 1876, If so, she is my great grandmother for whom I have been searching. She died of Typhoid Fever at age 20. Thank you. Joyce at jkm45

Thank you!
Hi Dawn!
I just want to thank you for your quick response to my many requests. Your hard work is so appreciated. The histories you have provided have filled more than a few holes in my family tree and serves to honor the lives of so many who have gone before us.
Thanks again for all you do!

Rufus Turner Find A Grave Memorial# 5355114
I am doing research on the Turner family - my maiden name was Turner and I don't know a whole lot about the extended family. I am trying to confirm that your Rufus is the one I have listed in my family tree as Jesse R Turner - the rest of the info seems to match but I can't find anything to connect the two and I would love to confirm your info for the children etc. Thanks so much - if you would prefer to answer via email feel free

PS His brother Ephraim Judson would be my great great grandfather :)
