My name is Leslie MITCHELL Smith. I have been working on family history research on my husband's lines since 1999. I enjoy putting all of the "puzzles" together.
I am currently working on putting all of my husband's family onto FindaGrave. If you have any additions and/or corrections, please feel free to contact me. I also have my files posted on RootsWeb.com.
I have been helped by so many others over the years that I am very willing to help gather information for other researchers. I do still have children at home, so I try to do my research while they are in school. So, please be patient with me :o)
RE: Pine Grove Cemetery I've posted it. Feel free to download and keep any pictures I've posted that you want to. And also let me know if any of the memorials I've created are your relatives. None of those in Pine Grove are related to me.
RE: Fort Snelling Volkmans You're very welcome; it's my honor to take photos there. This was the best time of year to catch these stones in sun-soon they will be completely shaded by the deciduous tree to the south. Please let me know if i can help with any other photos there.
RE: Tacoma Cemetery Hi, I highly doubt he has one as well especially if it says "bottom". He is resting under one of the other Austins. My assumption is that he is under his wife Sylvia since he passed before her. The person who added the photo of the people in that area probably missed your request for Horace and that's why he isn't on the list. I've walked that section and there are very few uncovered markers.
Re: Memorial 14520368 Hello...I understand you manage thousands of memorials, but was wondering where the rather descriptive obituary came for this memorial? There's a lot of data in it (some correct, some incorrect based on my family documents)and I'd like to know who to follow up with about it. Thanks.
Reuben Arnold Claunch #61769683 Hello Leslie, I noticed that you have the Claunch name in your cemetery list. Also that you have been researching your family a long time. I'm hoping that you can maybe help me. I know that we Claunches apparently all started in the USA with Hieronymus Glantz in 1732. I also noticed that you have listed in your cemeteries, Reuben Arnold Claunch. He was the brother to my great-great grandfather, Wiley T. Claunch #5476245. And I believe their father was Madison Love Clonch who was born in Grainger co.,Tn, abt. 1791 and died in St Clair co.,Al. abt.1852. My question is do you have any idea how to connect these men to our ancestor, Hieronymus? Any names would help. Thanks Nanette
RE: Lincoln Memorial Park Hi, I just checked the paper and found an obit for Mary and a funeral notice for William "Sam" Slayton. They download as full pages of the paper in pdf format and the obit and/or funeral notice are on the pages. I can email these to you if you want them. Nathan
