|Bio and Links|
Ever since I can remember, I have had a fascination with cemeteries. There was one right down the street from our school, we used to walk through it often, It was so peaceful and the monuments were so beautiful. My father Calvin Russell Swallow is buried there now. My sister Mel and I have gone back to Massachusetts and other New England States and explored the cemeteries looking for ancestors. Genealogy and searching cemeteries for family has been a treasured time with my sister. What a gift it is to have a sister to share your interests with.|
I am hoping to make connections with distant cousins and share pictures and stories. I have posted many branches to our tree to do this.
I AM VERY LIBERAL WITH TRANSFERING MEMORIALS. MY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE FOR EVERYONE (COPY THEM AT YOUR PLEASURE) AND I FEEL NO SENSE OF OWNERSHIP OVER MEMORIALS THAT ARE NOT MY FAMILY. I LOVE DOCUMENTING GRAVES. I AM SOMEWHAT OFFENDED BY THOSE WHO DO NOT SHARE THAT SENSE OF GIVING. WE GET NO POINTS IN HEAVEN BY HOW MANY MEMORIALS WE CONTRIBUTED TO FINDAGRAVE. THERE ARE MANY FINE CONTRIBUTORS TO FIND A GRAVE AND A FEW THAT NEED TO GET OVER THEMSELVES. Remember...."God Loves a Cheerful Giver"!!
A POEM FROM ALL OF US AVID GENEALOGIST'S!!
Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone. The name and dates are chiseled out on polished, marble stone. It reaches out to all who care; it is to late to mourn. You did not know that I exist; you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulse not entirely on our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago. Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so.
I wonder as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you. - Walter Butler Palmer 1906

Star: We've communicated before about Malcolm Brogdon. I'm still hoping to find who Silas Brogdon was and what happened to his 11 children. Silas married Christian McPherson ca1804 in Cumberland County, NC. They are on the 1810 and 1820 census records for Chesterfield County, SC. Then the family disappears.
Have you by chance run up on records for Silas Brogd*n? He also fought in the War of 1812 but I haven't found a service record for him.

B. 9 Feb 1644; m. 1665, Dorcas Morse. Thought you might be interested in this profile of his parents, Joseph Clarke & Alice (Brass) Pepper I found on Ancestry.com. It's from the Pennsylvania and NJ, Church and Town Records, 1708-1985 on that site:

...and thank you once again for yet another transfer; I greatly appreciate your kindness...Stan
Hi, and thanks for the Ruth Perley transfer. I've added a lot to the memorial.--Stan

The birth year for her can't be right.
Her children would have been born prior
to her (?). She would have been 17 y/o
when she died also. The year must have
been entered incorrectly.

On this site you list Humphrey's mother as Mary Wales. On Humphrey's site, you list his mother as Mary Rudd.
|Jo Peterson||Sorry Too many Benjamins|
Sorry Too many Benjamin Guilds and not one of them is our relative. They are so plentiful that I looked below your Benjamins and saw two with the same death date in cemeteries 50 miles apart - one was 5 years old and other was married.
|Jo Peterson||Benjamin Guild - Wrentham|
You put on two memorial pages for the same person - Benjamin Guild. Looks like #20910960 is a updated version of #20892676. I think that they should be combined into one page. I am finding a lot of duplicates on FindAGrave , mostly done by two different people.
|J Carroll||John Bates #18167954|
Hi, I think you have the wrong picture posted to John Bates's memorial #18167954. The death date on the stone is May 1st and this John Bates died in April. There were 3 generations of John Bates who died as a result of small pox. Your picture goes with the John Bates memorial #18167953. Joanne
