|For over 45 years I have worked on my family histories. Sometimes, as a "get-away" from my own research and frustrations I walk through a cemetery and record my own census of readable tombstones. I record the dates and inscriptions just as they are engraved on the memorial. |
So, what I have recorded is usually my own work efforts and research.
Memorials are created with respect and honor and are not intended to offend.
Should you have additions/corrections to my entries or if you would like your family member or friend transferred to your care, please let me know--
If the memorial is not my own relative or close friend, I consider ALL requests for memorial transfers. I'm not going to quibble over the ancestry and how many times removed you are from the person in the memorial. I'm happy to transfer memorials. Likewise, I appreciate similar considerations.
If you have a relative whose memorial I contributed and would like it transferred, let me know!
I don't understand why some Findagrave members are so territorial and won't transfer memorials, even if they aren't related
(And - I'm not in a numbers race to see how fast I can post obituaries or how many memorials I can post)
Seems some entries are made before the family has an opportunity to return from the cemetery!
I wish you success as you look for those who have gone before.

You did a fine job on my cousin Lois Glenn Bishop Matthew Vargas Finley's ex-husband's memorial, thanks for your extra effort on this memorial.

I know exactly what you are talking about. Since so many women died during childbirth, men were always remarrying! Sometimes they would even marry the younger sister off his deceased wife. Better times for us now. Henry Houck is my Patriot for DAR. Are you a member?

Hi! I am a descendent of the Houck Family. I was wondering if you would consider moving Anna's memorial to Smith Cemetery in Tompkins. F-A-G member Ayl has found her memorial as is willing to delete her memorial and upload her photo to your memorial if you will move her to the correct cemetery. I can't believe Aly was able to find the stone! According to Sylvia Wilson's book, Huyck in America, it seems they were all buried in different cemeteries. I hope the three of us can work together. :)

|Mark Tevault||RE: Hazelip|
I am not closely related, but the two Williams have perplexed me for a long time, because I could never find William (Butler) in the 1860 census. I'm sure you have seen the various misspellings of the surname doing research, it is all over the map. I finally found the 1860 Butler County William's family spelled as Hase.
I spent several weeks on tracing these two and just got excited and apologize for being a jackass. I have all the info on my Mom_Sy tree in Ancestry, it is a public tree.
|Mark Tevault||William "Thomas" Hazelip|
I submitted corrected information to your erroneous family connections for William "Thomas" Hazelip which I guess your pride will not allow you to accept.
1. William L Hazelip (1823-1891) of Edmonson, Kentucky married first: Polly Ann Lindsey (1826-1865) 1 son who died before 1860.
Polly is buried in Red Hill Church Cemetery in Brownsville Edmonson County.
William L (middle initial according to his military records, I haven't a clue where "Thomas" was pulled from) Hazelip married second to Eliza Jane Moore (1845-1915) who is buried next to William L Hazelip in Smiths Grove Cemetery.
William L Hazelip had 3 children (Jennie F, John M, Minnie G) by his "beloved wife" Eliza Jane Moore which are mentioned in his Will, written Jan 1 1881 and available on Ancestry.com.
William Hazelip (1835-1905) of Butler County Married a widow, Mrs Nancy C Embry Lee (1836-1898) on 7 March 1853 in Butler County. They were married for 46 years and had at least eleven children.
Wiley, Van, Olivia, Columbia, Mahala, Mary, William, Sarah, Julian, Prudance, John.
I would have sent this privately but for the rude comment you made when I suggested privately that you correct your baloney about two different men married to multiple wives at the same time and having two sets of children the same ages.
I understand you have been at it for numerous years which makes me wonder what other mis-information you have "out there".
