Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm doing my best to connect family links (parents and children) to my kin (direct and collateral) and really appreciate all who have kindly added the connections for me. I'm glad to add yours also.

Check out if you're interested in the symbols found on gravestones. Neat informative site. Are you a taphophile or tombstone tourist? I am.

Check out Scotch-Irish Presbyterians From Ulster to Rockbridge, by Angela M. Ruley, 3 October 1993. Angela headed the Rockbridge Area Genealogy Society and wrote several impressive publications on Rockbridge Co. This well written article combines pretty much everything I've found and more.

I welcome all additions, connections, corrections or changes and transfers so please feel free to contact me.

Please send REQUESTS for CORRECTIONS, CHANGES OR TRANSFERS through the EDIT feature on the specific memorial (top right).

I wasn't offended at all about sending the reference. The picture was sent to me by someone who knew her. No, I am not related. I heard she was a very sweet lady.

RE: Abner Kerr

Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition.

Please note "Location of body unknown is used for RECENT deaths...."

How do I add a memorial when I'm not sure what cemetery they are buried?
This is similar to adding a memorial for cremation. Do not create a new cemetery which does not exist in order to add these memorials. Use the Family and Friends link and select the Burial:Other and then Recent Death, location of body unknown option. Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days.

Abner Bailey "Abness" Kerr
Find A Grave Memorial# 30443614

Information regarding his father and mother has been added to the bio section with the notation that their places of burial are currently unknown.

You left a flower stating his mother was Cassandra Clairmont McCutchan (4 Nov 1807 to 4 Jul 1877, but on the memorial for her spouse she is listed as Cassandra Clarimore McCutcheon/an (4 Nov 1807 - 4 Jul 1877).

Please let me know which spelling of her middle tname to use.

Edit to link father to this memorial declined as it is a Burial Unknown.

RE: Jennie L Zeh
I'm glad I could help you. I was able to find her Pennsylvania death certificate online through Ancestry.

I am related through Jennie's sister Elizabeth who married one of my Hodge relatives - Elizabeth was the wife of Griffith Hodge who was the grand uncle of my Uncle Dave Hodge.

Kerr Family
Hi, I saw that you left a flower for Rev. William Kerr. Are you relation to the Kerr family by any chance? I believe that my grandfather is somehow connected to the Kerr's and am trying to locate someone that may know the Kerr family. My grandfather's name was John Addison Kerr Guthrie. His ancestors are from Lancaster County PA but I have not found a connection with the Kerr family. I have found that my grandfather has Boyer's Keesey's, Kolb's Brubaker's just to name a few but have not found why he had the name of Kerr in his name. Do you know any person that could help with that surname?

My Smiley line comes through William McClelland Smiley and his wife, Jane McCutchan, Jane's father, William "Elder Billy" McCutchan. The William Smiley on the stone at North Mountain is a brother to Alexander Smiley, an Elder at New Providence Church.Jane McClelland Smiley is buried at Stonwall Jackson cemetery. I do not know where her husband, John Smiley is buried; I have been looking for him for 20 years. Thank you for all that you have done to research the family. If I can help with some information, please let me know. My Family Tree on is "The Rod Smiley Family Tree." My e-mail is

Re: #113988453 Eleanor Fulton McCutchen
Thank you so much for the fantastic information about this family! I'm working with a 90 year old descendant of Eleanor to complete some of her genealogical research. Would it be possible for you to send me links to your references or digital copies of those references? Specifically: Eleanor's baptismal record at the South Mountain Presbyterian Church; Any record of Eleanor's marriage to William McCutchen; her brother, David Fulton's will paying his sister's debt.
My descendant is from Eleanor's son, James (1764-1822). You may contact me at
