Bio and Links
Bio Photo Virginia and I recently (2015) celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary. My family roots include Hobson (of course), Garrison, Vandruff, Goff, and so many others too numerous to mention. The family tree has been my form of recreation for over thirty years, and I continue to seek and find connected families. I collect obituaries, headstone photos, old family photos, published biographies, engagement and wedding announcements for those in my family tree, and am always looking for more. I'm very grateful to those who post information without hoping for financial gain. I usually post memorials here when there is an obituary to use as a biographical paragraph. My own collected research is available for the asking.

RE: Zuber connection
Wow. Okay, that's a little distant. Relation none the less. We're all related somewhere. I almost have to write some things down on paper and draw the connections out like dot to dots! haha. I know when I try and explain to some people, they look at me puzzled where people fit in.

Ps. On a side note, I know you still have a photo request sitting for All Soul's. I haven't had an opportunity to get out there again yet. Hopefully soon.

RE: Charles Woollard, Hillside Memorial Park
Jerry I also took a pic and started a memorial for Charles's father. If you wish that transferred to you, just provide your number. Thanks, Cindy

Find-a-Grave George Adamson
I tried emailing you, but AOL says you only accept incoming emails from a select list. :)
I was notified yesterday by "Mary" that the Jefferson Memorial Park had no record of George Adamson. I admit I did not find his grave on site--I added the record based on his Pennsylvania Veterans Burial Record, which specifically stated that he was buried in Jefferson Memorial Park, Pittsburgh (and the zip code was the same also). (I tried attaching an image of the card to the email.) So, I'm going to leave the record there for now, while I mail a copy of the card to the cemetery. Once I have a resolution, I'll try to fix it. Thanks for the heads up.

RE: Your posting re no gravestone
Sure, you can use the 'photo'! I haven't been reprimanded for using it, so I'm sure it is ok. By that I mean, using a stock photo in place of an actual one. sometimes people can be very picky and strict on this site. I find it helpful to know if someone doesn't have a gravestone, to save another person's time trying to find one that doesn't exist! Thank you for asking!

Wright, Goff, Garrison Connection
Dear Gerald,
I have been trying to locate graves for John and Rachel Wright when I found your reference note on the memorial for Sarah J. Wright Goff and wanted to know if you have researched further on her parents.

Note: Sarah J. Wright Goff was the daughter of John Wright and Rachel (Unknown).

My family records show Rachel Garrison was her mother. I have found some additional records for Rachel's parents - Stephen Garrison and Elizabeth Ayers Garrison (graves located in Salem Cty, NJ - Olivet Cemetery) and further back to Jacob Garrison and Christina Cresson.

I'm looking forward to review your site and hope to hear from you soon.

Susan Tuttle (grandmother Minnie Nina Wright)
