Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history for many years, but have just gotten serious about it in the last ten or so. My family is from Fairfax County, Va. I live in Gainesville, Va. I will answer Questions and take photos in Fairfax and Prince William Counties as time allows.
Some of the surnames that I am interested in are Swink, Magarity (McGarity), Reid, Shepherd, and Payne.
My book; "The Swink Family of Fairfax County, Virginia" is now available. Please contact me for pricing.

Charles Clattenburg - St, Timothy's
Hi,

I saw that you had added a photo for Charles Clattenburg (#101529898) at St. Timothy's in Herndon, VA and you note - Plot: Ashes in the columbarium.
I would like to take photos for the two most recent burials at St. Timothy's. Do you remember if this columbarium inside the church or is it outside on the church grounds?

Thank you in advance for your help.

"Mrs. only applies when used with her husband's name, not hers." Emily Post disagrees.

She is Mrs. if she was married. I am Mrs. Dawna Westbrook. It is a title of respect.

Use of census records to determine a date for Find A Grave is a dangerous practice and can result in us rewriting history. Folks assume we have access to some accurate information and census records are anything but accurate.

Happy hunting,
D

Hi,

You've sent update for Mrs. Lanoie's birth date of 1899. What source do you have for this?

Thx,

I think that this is how it goes.

William H. Mattison parents were Albert and Althea Keech Mattison, Albert's parents were Elijah Benson Mattison and Abigail Baxter.

Elijah Benson Mattison and Abigail Baxter had a son Eli Rhodes Mattison who was married twice. His second wife Laura Jane unknown had Alva B. Mattison who married Minerva E. and they had Mary E. Mattison (Locke).

So they were cousins.

Hope this helps.

Actually I did find her obituary. I relinked her and have added the obit to her profile.
