Bio and Links
Bio Photo Direct descendant of Israel Heath and Elizabeth Blue through their son Richard Blue Heath. I have researched and compiled a 600+pg family tree on all 9 children of Israel Heath and Elizabeth (Blue) Heath, and written an oral history of the Heath family migration from VA to MO and points beyond. The original Heath family consisted of 5 sons, 2 daughters. (Joseph, James, Jonas, Zachariah, and Israel, sister Ann Nancy Heath and one unknown sister yet to be found.)

Always happy to hear from other Heath descendants to share and exchange information, collect oral history. I have been working hard on collecting old photographs for preservation of descendants from all 9 children of the Israel Heath line. Please share copies of old photos with me if you are a Heath descendant. I was able to locate photos of two of their original 9 children: a photo of David M Heath, Daviess Co MO and eldest son James Heath. I have placed them on their Find a Grave memorials for Heath descendants to find.
Any PHOTOS I have put on Find a Grave, you are welcome to make 'yours'-I put them there on purpose so descendants can find them. Please ADD any old PHOTOS you may have as well.

If you would like a family memorial here transferred to you for maintenance, please contact me through the normal edit tab on the memorial. I'm happy to do so. I'm not stuck on the 4 generation rule but on who is doing the research and will make nice memorials and maintain them.

I also research the following surnames related to me: John Warren family from Heard Co GA into TX, Thomas C Poor family from Delaware County, Indiana into early Butte MT, Augustus Hessel family from Grand Island, Nebraska.

RE: Walter Scott Heath
Josie's brother you may be referring to could be James Alexander Winchester. James was married to Sarah "Sally" Jane Donnell. The Donnell family is my direct line.

Thank you so much for the information, Obviously I was looking in the wrong county.

I appreciate your help!

Elkana Plymell
Hello! 5 or 6 years ago you added a photo of my great-great-great-great grandfather, Elkana Plymell. In the picture he's sitting with what looks like a war medal pinned on his jacket. Can you confirm that this is an authentic photo of my grandfather? I have no existing photos of him myself to verify and I find myself so intrigued! Thank you so much for your contributions to my family history!!!!

Jesse Russell
Russell, Blue, Heath and Cupp
Very nicely done, Cameron. My 3rd ggf was John Russell Crafton. They dropped the Crafton name after my 2nd ggf, Bennett Russell, was born in 1799 in Clarke Co., Va. where I still live. We are now fairly sure that JRC's mother was a Russell from Loudoun Co. and specifically the branch that hails from Samuel Russell. Bennett Russell married Mary Ann Blue and her father was Jesse Blue and grandfather, John Blue, all from that part of Berkeley Co. that is now Jefferson Co. WV. I noticed that one of your respondents was also tracing his Cupp family line. Martha Conrelia Cupp b. 1833 and d. 1902 lived in both Rockingham and Augusta Co.s Va. and is my 2nd ggm. Her husband was Hugh Connell. This relationship to Cupp comes through my grandmothers line. Love to know more but haven't had time yet. Rather amazed at how many names on both sides of my family are intertwined. Enjoyed reading all the messages to your site.

Russell Family
Thank you for your well researched memorial page presentations. Some of the best I've seen on Find A Grave. I am a descendant of John Russell 1786-1867. My grandmother helped Edwin Russell compile information for his book.

John McHenry, 1907. Photo extracted from a larger group photo of the 'Little Platte Singing Class of 1907' held at the Little Platte Baptist Church. His sisters Clella and Beatrice were also in the group photo. Photo courtesy of Marcia Grimes. If you want a copy of the full group photo email me.

Hi Cameron, Iam related on the Heath side. Just a little background first. I never knew my birth dad. I thought he died before I was born(1934) true. Mom married when I was 2 again. I started Ancestry several yrs ago. I knew my dad, Herman had a sisters Jeanette & Irene. My half sisters told me this after Mom died. I found my grandparents, HERMAN R SORENSON, MARRIED TO ANNIE ARVILLA hEATH from Newton, Ohio. Her father was Andrew Jackson Heath and her mother was Irena Elizabeth Fisher Heath. Herman divorced Annie and married a Anna Proceller in 1922. I never did find out when Annie died or what happed to her. They had 7 children, 2 as infants. I found all of them but my dad Herman, only to 1925. I know he was in Navy but can not get any info. In census it on says born about 1911 in NY. All born in NY. Tne Sorenson Tree is Public on line on Ancestry. Thank you. Barbara Sorenson Tascher

Albert Heath descendant
My grandparents are Albert and Vesta Anna (Walker) Heath and are both buried in Circleville. I have been interested in the Heath family for years, but living in Lancaster County, PA has made it difficult to do research. This website is wonderful. I was told that Albert's father was James B. Heath, born in 1834 or 1835 in Pickaway County. He married Hannah Brown b. approx 1838, believed to have been born in England. They had 8 children during a very turbulent and abusive marriage and divorced January 7, 1890, which was very unusual at that time. I have a photocopy of the divorce papers filed at the Pickaway County Court House.

The children from this marriage were:
William b. 1859 d.1926, buried in Waterloo Cemetery
Charles b, 1862
David b. 1864
Edward b. 1866
James b. 1868
George "Gogie" b. 1871
Alice b. 1874
Albert b. 1877 d. 1945
