|Graveyard Shift||Cynthia Hash Chisam|
I'm writing to let you know the Chisam cemetery is NOT where this couple is buried. They were buried on another farm, not far from there, under a tree, by themselves, and their markers are long gone. There is one local Chisam that can point it out.
I would appreciate it, if you use photos that I have already submitted, that you don't resize it then take credit. You can delete the cemetery photo.
|Grave_Walker||RE: EDIT REQUEST DECLINED FOR #126561126|
Not a problem, have done the same thing before.
Another helpful contributor made me aware that if you send an Edit Request and later want to remove it, Go to the EDIT TAB, under it is DISPLAY, click on the drop down arrow and choose “EDITS I HAVE SENT THAT ARE PENDING” then find the one you sent and click on the X to remove it.
I have found this new feature to be very helpful many times.

Regarding Maudie M. Wohlwend #126561126
I have to decline your requests to add parents: Father: William Dallas Moore (1862-1929) and Mother: Sarah Ann Herod Moore (1873-1941) as parents for Maudie M. Wohlwend #126561126.
First of all Sarah Ann Herod Moore was born in 1873 which would make her age 8 when she gave birth to Maudie as she was born in 1881 and she was born in Tennessee. Second, Maudie’s death certificate states her parents were: Will Davis and Josie Ann Julian Davis which would make her maiden name “Davis” and not “Moore”.
I really believe you have the wrong Maudie Wohlwend and I just cant make the changes you have requested as there is no documented proof stating they are her parents.
|Michael Stock||RE: Looking for Blankenships|
First of all, thank you for responding to my email. I can’t tell you how excited I am to obtain information about the man and family who raised my Dad. Other than my Grandmother, Zora Mae, I’ve never spoken with any member of the Blankenship family.
I’ve come across a document that I would like to send you regarding the Blankenship family. Some of the information goes back to 1340 identifying Thomas Blenkinsopp’s efforts turn his home into a castle and additional information about the arrival of our first ancestors in 1686.
It’s the 1686 date that fascinates me. I’ve found were Blankenships fought on both side during our Civil War and even Dwight Blankenship’s name on a wall for D-Day’s Missing-In-Action but, it’s the 1688 date that peaks my interest; do you know if any of our ancestors took part in the American Revolution and if so, on which side? It would be nice to know after all these years if our forefathers thought of that war as a “Revolution” or an “Insurrection”.
I believe I already mentioned that I will be in Missouri in June. I’ll be flying in on Saturday, June 11th and leaving on Tuesday, June 14th. The purpose of my trip is genealogy research and until your email, I was going to spend my time with my Brother-in-Law, Bill, and a group of researchers in the Princeton MO area. But, now that I’ve discovered a real live relative I have to ask; is there any chance I could meet with you during my visit? Time and place would be totally at your convenience.
|Michael Stock||Looking for Blankenships|
Hello Ms. Blair,
My name is Michael Stock and after a long absence I’m back again into genealogy research.
I'm looking for the Blankenship side of my family. Zora Mae Blankenship was my Dad’s (Leland H. Stock) mother and I’m very interested in learning more about the Blankenships, especially her father, John P. Blankenship who raised my Dad.
My brother-in-law and I will be in Missouri from June 11th-June 14th searching for any & all information regarding our families and any information you could share regarding the Blankenship family, friends or residences would be greatly appreciated.
San Jose, CA
PS I found it interesting that we both do volunteer work for Find-a-Grave. I just left my Rookie year and am now entered my 2nd year.
|Hazel Inglis||Willam Maze.... Message in email coming|
On the way later today
|Hazel Inglis||Hello Norma|
I am a Granddaughter to William Maze....
May I send you an email concerning the lineage please ?
My name is Don Huffman and I have been told that Amanda Narcissus (Witt) Lewallen was my Great-Great Grandmother. Her daughter, Rebecca Lewallen, married my Great Grandfather, James Orville Manwarring. This is about all I know because my family moved from Texas when I was a young boy and I never got to know that side of my family. Would you have any information on Amanda or the Manwarrings that you would be willing to share with me?
I thank you for any help that you can give me.
