Researching Roach, McVicker, Merricks, Stackhouse, Parrot(t), Vallat/Vallet/Vallett, Murphy, Walsh, Ryan, Faherty, Donjon, Collignon, Deterding, Bertram... and many other lines. Am a descendant of the Plymouth Colony settlers Stephen Deane, William Twining, and Mary (Durrant) Ring. Also the Pennsylvania colonial settlers William Bills, John Cutler, Cuthbert Hayhurst, Thomas Stackhouse, and William Copeland.
Happy to exchange information and find new branches on the family tree.
Became interested in genealogy at an early age as I absorbed the many family anecdotes from my maternal grandmother and a paternal great uncle. Around 1991 I began compiling the genealogy in earnest. My thanks to all the kind, helpful people here on Find a Grave.
If you request information and I provide it, please respond so I know you received it.
Should you want me to transfer maintenance of a memorial for someone I'm not related to, I'd be happy to do so if you are that person's relative. Please use the "Edit" button on the memorial page and then click "Suggest a correction or provide additional information." Explain how you're related and send! Remember to include your Find a Grave ID number or I won't know to whom I should transfer the memorial.
The website below is mainly for poetry, but I do list my surnames there.
RE: Cessna I haven't done any DNA testing but I thought about it last year. I may end up doing it at some point in the future just out of curiosity.
Looks like my line wasn't the only to change spellings of the Cessna name; makes it hard to track the different branches when they keep changing things. :) A few other branches of my tree have done the same thing - just enough of a spelling change to make it challenging.
Cessna Hi, I was just curious which line you descend from on the Cessna side? I noticed Major John Cessna and Jonathan listed in your virtual cemetery. I am descended from Jonathan's son Stephen Cessna who changed it to Cisne. Did you know we're related to Clyde Cessna i.e. Cessna planes? Major John's brother James is the ancestor of Clyde. Kind of neat to find people like that in the tree.
I'm curious, I noticed you are researching Bertram. I'm descended from Joseph Minzes (Rev. War-North Carolina) and his first wife Margaret Buttram. They lived in Rowan County, N.C. Since I've run into the Bertram spelling in this family I wondered if there is a connection?
Doris Meranda and Clara E. McIntire Meranda Wallace Hi, The mother of Doris Meranda is Clara E. Wallace (#80846832), if you would like to add the link. They are both buried in the Garden of the Cross section of Beech Grove Cemetery, Muncie, IN. I added the obituary for Mrs. Wallace in the note section. The husband of Clara is Henry Wallace (#80846960). Take care--hope your research goes well! Jane
Doris Meranda Hi, I have transferred the memorial for Doris Meranda to your care, as I am no relation. I double-checked the information in the obituary to make sure I typed it correctly, and I did find a mortuary listing online that lists her father as Maurice Meranda and her mother as Clara McIntire. Henry Wallace was apparently a step-father. Take care, Jane
Evan B. Stackhouse My name is Herbert Nannah, I was surprised to find your find a grave posting (Oct 5,2011) of Evan B. Stackhouse, as my wife and I were to the grave today (Nov. 18, 2011) at the Corinth Cememtery, Fox Twp, Carroll County Ohio, of Sarah Johnson Stackhouse, wife of Evan B. Stackhouse. I didnot find the grave of Evan B. Stackhouse. I believe Evan B. Stackhouse is buried in the same cememtery.Evan B. Stackhouse is the gggrandfather of my wife Judith. Would like to know where you found this grave site appreciate a reply
RE: St Matthews Would love any help you can give. We did the Greek sections last year and now Block 2 and 4. Photograph away please! I will put you on our next group adventure. Next spring is Park Lawn in South County.
