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. It opens up a world to many. I'm glad to add yours also. My family in VA, PA and MD were there so early, they're kind of connected to everyone there. That's why I feel a responsibility to connect and record data when I come across it.

If you're interested in the symbols found on gravestones, check out two good sites at and Neat informative sites. Are you a taphophile or tombstone tourist?

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.

Two great professional grave cleaning solutions recommended often are called Wet and Forget and Spray and Forget. They've had wonderful results, as seen in some gravestone photos. It's a slow acting cleaner that improves with time and weather. Sometimes repeat sprayings are necessary but wow, the results I've seen are impressive. Shaving cream is very destructive I understand.

I welcome all additions, connections, corrections or changes and am open to transfers so please feel free to contact me on the specific site.

Please let me know if you catch my errors, I missed them. Mea maxima culpa

CONTACT ME FOR GENEALOGICAL HIRE for research, especially in VA/MD/PA, through any of my memorials.

Please send REQUESTS for CORRECTIONS, CHANGES OR TRANSFERS or discussions through the EDIT feature on the specific memorial (top right), that way I know the EXACT site.

Thanks for adding the information. No need to transfer - I am not a relative either.

RE: Ann Beats Watkins
Thanks for your help. The reason I don't use the edit is because I am using an old phone, not upgraded. To send these messages. Every time I try the edit makes me go through some security pictures and pick out street signs and kicks me out. I will be upgrading soon. I will request photos and if ever I get them I will let you know.
Thanks again!

RE: Which date is correct?
Sorry, my F.A.G. Site is not sending edit correctly at this time.

The question I had on dates was for Williams spouse, Ann Beats Watkins. Her # is 110240301.

Is the Birth date Sept 29 correct? Or is the Birth date written in the first sentence of the bio, Sept 9, correct?

Thank you again, sorry for the mistake.

Isaiah McBride
1777-1830 I am searching for information on Isaiah's birth place, and mother's name. So far I only know that his father was John McBride who purchased the land on New Providence Rd in 1788.

But where was the family when Isaiah was born in 1777? And what was his mother's name? Isaiah's sisters were Jane (Jennie) and Margaret (Peggy).
Jane married Andrew Young and Margaret married William Brown.

Id you don't know of any documentation that will provide Isaiah's birthplace, can you recommend other sources? Thank you!

RE: Jas McCutchan
No problem! Thank you for the cool photo of the old McCutchan homeplace! This used to be on my great-grandparents' property until it was torn down. The lady who shared this with you, Virginia Kibler, is my great-aunt. She passed away last week.
