I started my genealogy journey quite by accident. A question came up in my family ancestry, so I decided to see if I could answer it. I found the answer and I was excited about the find. My husband then purchased a family tree computer program and it has snowballed from there. I love history and thinking about how our ancestors lived. I enjoy sharing with others the newest information found. It's a great way to honor our heritage and remember the ones who came before us. "Some" of the names I am researching are....Brune, Stehwien, Mangelsdorf, Fickel, Southard, Harris, Holloman, Troxel, Ward, Osborne, Stubblefield, Coffin, Guerrant, Porche, Guilfoyle plus related lines.
Thanks to all that have contributed to my memorials. I am willing to share what information I have. Sharing is what Find A Grave is all about. That's my belief! Please feel free to use any of my information or photos for your own use.
Please, if you find any errors or if I can make any additions, let me know!
Chester Charles Felton Hi Gina... My name is Kelly (Felton) Benson and I am trying to trace my family history. I don't have a lot of details and there really isn't anyone on my Felton side to really ask anymore. So... I ran across this entry and I saw you are the person to maintain this page. I was wondering if you are related to him and if you have any info.
Helen Russell Thanks for the edit for Helen, Gina. Helen's husband Rob was my dad's cousin, and I do know about her name - just forgot to go in and fix it after I obtained several of the family memorials from Chris. I suspect there are more that I missed, so I appreciate reminders! ~ Pam
Troxel Ah, yes, George was one of the three children of Frederick and his second wife, Alabama. I am descended from George's half brother, Alexander D., whose mother was Frederick's first wife, Jane Cox: Alexander -> Thomas A. -> Mary Blanche Troxel Johnson (my paternal grandmother). Always good to meet another Troxel!
Troxels Gina, I have seen your name a lot here on F.A.G. and just noticed that Troxel is one family you are researching. Since this is my paternal grandmother's family, I wonder if we are related? Do you have Troxels in your line? ~ Pam
Gilbert Moles and Bernard Brown are buried in the same plot, that is why I added the same photo to both of them. I assume they are related they were both children. Their headstone photo is the top photo it was covered with moss and dirt till I scraped it off.If you click on it, it will blow up so you can see it better that is the headstone. Yes they would be buried under the rhododendron plant, you can see the square concrete outline of their plot (especially if you blow it up)covered with moss. Hopes this helps you as you can see there is nothing to fix :)
James Whiteford You are welcome. However, according to the stone he died Aug 27, 1851 at the age of 44, putting his birth year around 1817. Do you think that this perhaps is not the James Whiteford that you are looking for?
RE: Greenlawn Memorial Gardens My pleasure.! I also added photographs for the two other family members buried next to him. I figured you would want them as well. The plot they are buried in is Section I.
