Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been tracing the various branches of my family tree and my spouse's for around 35 years now, and have always had a keen interest in small family cemeteries.

On frigid cold winter nights I transcribe burial records to Rattlesden Churchyard, in Suffolk County, England. This information comes from, "Notes on the Church & Parish of Rattlesden, by J. R. Olorenshaw.

On the inside: Only 200 copies of this work have been printed, of which this is No. 174

Printed 1900

Price 10s. 6d. nett

I tend not to change spellings in this work, to modern day spellings. We're the ones who changed it, not them.


If I ask a member of find-a-grave to link children to parents I always have sources. Just ask.

My goal, as far as a family historian, is to link together my ancestors and their progeny, down to the present day. (Excluding the living)

My research is concentrated in; North Carolina: for Alleghany, Surry, Yadkin, Stokes, Forsyth, Rockingham, Alamance, Gaston, Union, and a few coastal counties.

Pennsylvania: for Wayne, Pike, Lackawanna, Montgomery, Northampton, Berks, Northumberland, Montour, Monroe, Lycoming, Columbia, and Allegheny.

Virginia: Floyd, Patrick, Henry, Nelson, Henrico, Fluvana, Elizabeth (defunct), Norfolk, Culpeper, and others close to these.

Missouri: Henry, Johnson, Osage, and Jackson.

When I find a small cemetery to transcribe, I usually have to machete my way to each stone, I then take multiple photos of each stone so I get the dates and spelling correct. I don't clean stones. So sometimes I just can't read it, sorry.

Hi Allen,
I am not related, but if you tell me the daughter's full married name I'll see if I can find out. Rick

RE: Harrison Kimble #100630949
This line has been such a brick wall for me. There are quite a few Harrison Kimbles... I'm appreciative of your help. Maryann

RE: Harrison Kimble #100630949
Hello, my Harrison Kimble was married to Majesta Mary Whiting inDec 31, 1840. She was born in New York in 1822 according to 5 census.
My brick wall is that the 1880 census has him in Wheatland working as a wheelwright& has his birthdate about 1820.
Are we talking the same person?
