Bio and Links
Bio Photo      I enter records here on Find A Grave for two reasons: First to help others find the graves of lost family members and second to remember our War Hero's who have "Given Their All" for our country!

If you'd like me to fix any of the records that I maintain ... please click on the "Edit" button on the top right of the record, click on "Suggest a Correction" ... Enter your note and/or correction and I'll fix them as quickly as possible.

When requesting a transfer use the edit tab on the memorial and follow the below from F-A-G.

From F-A-G

"Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made."


Also note from FAG rules:

"No photos of obituary's are allowed, No bio's in flower sections are allowed. The record added to the right cemetery first may stay and the burial unknown will be deleted regardless of the dates.


     I'm currently working on updating and entered Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" during World War II. To see more on this project please click on my website below...


     I originally started researching my Family Tree when my oldest son, Chris, came home from school one day and said that they had to write up their family tree as a project. This, of course, led me to many cemeteries and I quickly became interested in them also.

     I've always enjoyed history and the two fell together.


     Again, If I've created a record that someone needs deleted (since some families do not want their loved ones on the internet) or that you want me to update please let me know and I'll be glad to update it for you.

Military Rank
Thanks, Russ, I added the rank of Leon Brann. I had not noticed that it was an option at the time I created the memorial. Glen

Samuel Alexander
I've made a correction on his date of death I believe it should be 1864.


In the battle of Cold Harbor there were killed Sergeant William Warren, of Company A; Private Robert Thomas, of Company B ; Corporal Charles P. Prettyman, of Company E; Private James Mick, of Company F; and Private Hudson Carr, of Company I. Died of wounds. Privates David
Guessford, of Company F, and Samuel Alexander, of Company I.
found in the "History of the First regiment, Delaware volunteers, from the commencement of the "three months' service" to the final muster-out at the close of the rebellion by William P. Seville 1884.

Mary Elizabeth (Jones) Knox & Wm H Knox
Hi Russ,

I have located Mary Elizabeth (Jone) Knox's parents - Samuel O Jones and Lovey (Hollis) buried at the Jones family cemetery. It is a plot on the old Jones farm near Farmington DE, thanks to Dee Henson.

I sent edits (via Find A Grave) to update both memorials. The information comes from Hollis Notes, now on Ancestry, authored by Albert Dehner Jones.

Thank you once again for the fine job you have done keeping the memories alive with all your time and efforts. Most appreciated. Lorena

Dale G Wendte at Silver Ridge
Hi Russ,

Please Keep Dale Wendte"s memorial. There is no need for you to transfer it back to me. I feel his memorial will be better looked after by you than my being able to do it.

Thank you,
Carolyn Wickens

RE: Tucker
Thanks, Russ. Yea, the Glenwood Tuckers are mostly my line but not all. Two other Tucker lines married into mine. Mine are actually Irish.

John, the clothier, doesn't seem to be in my line. That may be the IOOF bunch - I lose track.

I appreciate the transfers and hope to connect the dots before the clock runs out.

Two Henry Jennings in Union Hill - Rochester NY
I've stumbled upon a few mix ups (photo's and linked people) to the wrong people through no fault of yours. Some of the confusion lies in that both father and son by the same name are on the same stone. The elder Henry (b. 1746) is the Rev War Vet.

I'm going to put through a bunch of edits as I have the complete Jennings lineage in front of me. None of them will make sense until they are all processed. Some edits will have to be processed by others who have linked to incorrect parentage.

Just wanted to give you a heads up so you didn't think I was crazy ;) The memorials in which are affected are #26168807 & #26168843.

Thank you for all you do for find-a-grave.
