I've been doing genealogy since about 2001. I'm mostly researching my parents families, Clark and Mooney. My mother's family goes back at least 5 generations before me in Gallia County, OH, so that's where most of my research time goes. Most of my entries are family, but not all. I'd be happy to transfer ownership of a non-family member to a member of their family. Other surnames researched include Houser, Mahan, Steele, Selvey, Bostic, Boggs, Means, and Hanks to name a few. I appreciate any corrections or updates.
Joshua Hanks #33508874 What a nice entry for him! I am confused by who his parents are, however. The narrative states that he is the s/o Richard and Mary Hinds Hanks. But the clickable link gives Joseph Hanks (1725-1793) and Nancy Lee Hanks (1728-1808.) I'm pretty certain Richard and Mary Hinds Hanks are correct. They are my 5g grandpar through marriages to Howell and to Orrison and to Nichols lines. Thx, Resa Nichols Hennings
last message I swear this is the last comment. : ) Ford Hall was home to our Clark grandfathers and their wives since it was built appx. 1480 for eight generations down the line until our Clark grandfather immigrated to Va before 1683. I'd love to have that place.
George Clark of 1510 (our 12th great) m. Elizabeth Wilsford of Cranbrook. Her grandfather was James Wilsford 1461-1535...Sheriff of London. Many of the Clark grandmothers had fathers and brothers who were knights and dukes.
more Clark info ...also Alexander Clark fought for the VA militia in the Revolutionary War as well as the war of 1812. He's listed on the DAR registry. A family friend did a great deal of research on the Clark line. She found proof sources going back to James Clerk abt. 1480 of Wrotham Kent. In the book Kentish Items, Wrotham a pedigree showed two more generations to John Clerk 1425 of Ford who m. Alice of Totesham. Ford Hall still remains today and was for sale last I checked. You'll find a lot of history at the St. George church in Wrotham as well. Brasses for our 11th greats, John Cartwright Clark and his wife Elizabeth Steed, still remain in the floor near the rood screen. It's the oldest St. George church in England. There are photos online for Ford Hall (Ford Place now), the church, and the brasses of which only 13 exist with 5 of them for members of the Peckham family...who the Clarks were intertwined with.
Alexander Clark, Sr. 1736-1794 connection to a William Each generation has more than one William. I don't have anything on Mary Jane Ferguson. Alexander 1736 had both a brother and a son. In Alexander's will he listed all of his children and all spouse's except for William 1771. It's safe to assume at the time of the will (June 12, 1794) he was unmarried at abt 23 years of age. I descend from Alexanders son, Samuel Clark, Sr.
Gothard memorial I just added a headstone photo to Alice Marie Clark Gothard. I see that there is not a memorial for her husband Herman Harold Gothard. Do you want to set that up or do you want me to go ahead and do that. Thank you, Nancy -- NLS #48173106
Eads Cemetery I am from out of state and am looking to visit Eads Cemetery. I am unable to locate it, I am looking for an address that will bring me closest to the Cemetery. Do you know if it over grown with brush or who owens the cemetery. Thank you Virginia Blossom
