Dear Santa; don't bring me new dishes
I don't need a new kind of game.
Genealogists have peculiar wishes
For Christmas I just want a surname

A new washing machine would be great,
But it's not the desire of my life.
I've just found an ancestor's birth date;
What I need now is the name of his wife.

My heart doesn't yearn for a ring
That would put a real diamond to shame.
What I want is a much cheaper thing;
Please give me Mary's last name.

To see my heart singing with joy,
Don't bring me a real leather suitcase,
Bring me a genealogist's toy;
A surname with dates and place.

Thanks Marji

My relations
I am the great-great granddaughter of Mary Jemima Austin Hart. My mother knew her as a child, and my mother's father is Orvis Covell. In an entry here the 2nd husband of Mary JA Hart is listed as Orvis Nicholas Young Hart, and then the name Covell is mentioned without indicating anything about its origin. My mother's maiden name is Covell, Her father's name was Orvis Covell, but that man would have been the son of Mary JA and Orvis NY Hart. Can you tell me where the name Covell comes from?

Also, among the records, it seems that Orvis was adopted. I'm left wondering if I am blood relation to Nancy Ann Lewis, daughter of Lot and Jemima Garwood Lewis.

My quest is to discover the relatives who immigrated from Europe.

Let me know if you want more info from me. Are we kin?

Here is my lineage -- still living: Mother - Mary Louis Covell Cary Father - Eular Harwood Cary. Me: Denise Renee Cary (Durham) Phillips. My brothers: Cary Harwood Cary & Brian Steele Cary

Exact same information on two memorials
Marion Lee Householder #48436131 and his brother
John J. Householder #48436065, have the exact military and death information on their memorials, is this the correct information? They are distant relatives of my husband's but I know nothing about them, and I am grateful for all your work.

Percy Smith
I just wanted to make your aware that a contributor with a burial unknown just moved their memorial for Percy Smith to the cemetery. Please be aware that yours takes precedence in case they try to persuade you to delete yours. Burial Unknowns must be updated within 30 days and theirs was over 2 years ago.
