Bio and Links
I always been interested in cemeteries, and family history. My work on my family history started in 1978. I worked most of my life in manufacturing, starting in Production and eventually ending in Quality Assurance. I retired in 2010, after working for 40 years and doing a tour in the United States Air Force, during the Vietnam War. Enjoy checking out cemeteries and working on my family history. On father's side is: Banister, Bracken, Burke, Mappin, Rogers, Williams. On my mother's side there are Peterson, Johnson, Johannesson, Petersdotter, Sill, Swanson, Edwards, Holmes, Schumacher, and Sundlop, just to mention a few. These families are a mixture of Irish and Swedish, which makes for some interesting times. I am a member of the McDonough County Genealogy Society, and was inducted into the "Sons of the Amercian Revolution" in May 2012.

RE: FAG 91719903
I do have Rhoads/Rhodes relatives. I will transfer to you if you would like so you can add info. I don't know why I don't get written edits through my email.

RE: FAG #6827684
Thank you for your note. I am aware of the discrepancy. The drop down does not allow for me to enter DOB as having occurred in Shepherdstown, Frederick County, Virginia. Find A Grave is set up so that entries can only be made for currently existing locations, so that people can find the graves. I realize that interferes with historical accuracy, but I can do nothing about it, except make a notation in the bio section. I will be happy to do that for you. Thanks, again!

Steve ... Have you been able to prove the Swedish town where Annie M. and your Sophia Christina (and Maria, Nels V. and their mother, Cecelia) were born? Thanks.

William Featherstone Blades is my Great Grand Uncle. I have information on his ancestry in England back 4-5 generations but nothing further on Emma (not being my relative except by marriage). They did have 7 known children (Frank (died WWI), Myrtle (Jack Cameron), Leona (Dr David Hankin), James, Wilfred, Bessie (Andrew Campbell),and Mable (Rod Carmichael)). If you want any details on what I have, email me directly at

Col. Harold T. Babb
Thank you for your information regarding my uncle, who was my mother's brother. However, he did not retire as a major general and he never served in Turkey. Perhaps there was another Harold Babb. I have changed his bio from "commanding officer" to "deputy commander," as you suggested.

Mary Frances Crosson Kays
My great grandmother was Mary Frances Crosson (mother of Rose Anna Crosson Kays, my grandmother). Mary was born October October 10, 1850 in Morrow Township, Warren County, Ohio and died August 6, 1911 in Oneida, Ontario Township, Knox County, Illinois. Mary is buried next to her husband Charles S. Hood, whom she married December 22, 1880 in the Oneida Cemetery. My grandmother's father was George Washington Kays, but Mary Frances was never married to him.

Please correct your entry to show Mary's husband as Charles S. Hood (1862-1946).
