For changes to any memorial I manage, please use the Suggest A Correction "SAC" feature on the memorial under the Edit tab on the top right hand side of each memorial. Messages for changes left here may not be made.

Please do not copy and post personal photographs of my family members to other websites such as without my permission. I do not have a problem with reusing my tombstone photos for your personal use, but credit would be a good idea as they are my photos. Also note that I did not take all of the photos on my memorials and can't give permission for the ones I didn't take to be reused.

My husband and I started trying to trace our roots back to Europe about 30 years ago. We were fortunate that several of our ancestors kept some records and created family books which were the start of our adventures. We were surprised to learn that both of our families had branches in this country since the 1700's. Most of the entries I've made have some connection to these families, although remote at times (cousins many times removed). A few are just made from photos taken as we walked a cemetery looking for our family members.

I do not intentionally link to burial unknowns for purposes of creating family trees. Please do not request such links. I will delete them if found.

RE: McCullough
Thank you. Degraphney and Mary actually had 11 children.
Zachary T 04/25/1847 (possibly deceased before censes)
William M 12/10/1848 (guess the W could have been viewed as an M on family records)
Robert S 02/08/1851
Henry S 05/06/1854
Susan A 02/06/1855
John S 03/05/1857
Hugh C 02/08/1859 (my great-great grandfather)
Mary J 11/08/1863
Lucy L 12/18/1865
Degraphney 10/05/1867 (I would not have thought to look for D Graphney, I also submitted a correction to the birth date, it was listed as 10/02/1866 even though the headstone read 1867)
Joseph O 10/09/1870

I am new to this as you can tell and find this quite interesting and a bit fun. The cousins had a reunion several years back and compiled a book of family history with dates of birth but no dates of death. I have noticed that a lot of the children and siblings are missing and I am trying to get those added but there is not an easy process like for the parents or spouse.

Found on my father's side back to the 1600s.

thank you again. Martha L Walker

RE: Darner Family
Thanks, Airrow! Will be interesting to see what comes up in your DNA with regards to Darner inheritance. I'll keep looking and see what I find out too.

Clara Phelps Davis
Thanks for the information on Clara's parents. I would be happy to transfer this memorial to you. I took a picture of this monument when I was visiting Mt. Oval Cemetery because one of my Davis grandparents is buried there. I was able to determine that Clara's husband is a distant relative of my grandparent.

Again, thanks for you contribution to Clara's memorial

Thank you for the Rainey edits
These are appreciated--in looking them up on the National Archives, I did find some additional detail. I am not done writing, but you may wish to take a look (I started with Bernice)

Darner Family
My gggf is Philip John Darner, who I think is a brother to Catherine Darner Spicer Ulmstead. I see you have Maria Barbara Darner listed as her mother. I thought Elizabeth Baker Darner was their mother. I have a possible DNA connection to Elizabeth Baker on, so was wondering if you have any documentation as to Catherine's mother? Thanks, Jenna

Wright Cemetery, Hubbard, Illinois
I don't know if the Wrights are in your family tree, but they are in mine. Thank you for all the painstaking photography and transcriptions relating to the family in the Wright Cemetery. Given the condition of a lot of the headstones photographed, transcriptions must have been very difficult ... but so helpful. Again, thank you. Judi
