|Bio and Links|
I live in Yakima, WA. I've been pursuing family history seriously for almost 30 years -- almost as long as I've been married to my wonderful husband. He is not so much into genealogy, but is a good sport about my "addiction", even to the point of helping me look for relatives in cemeteries when we travel. I love meeting cousins, too. |
Main family names: Boone, Mayfield, Short, Tate, Savage, Hughes, Graham, Slater.

I am not that good. In this case, I use Ancestry .com and looked up his wife and there was a hint about the Fifteenth Infantry. It had to be the Civil War. (I am a retired Soldier who likes military history, so it was obvious to me.) So, I just Googled " 'William J. Mayfield' Fifteenth" and up popped a book about his unit, and there was all the information in a book "The Battle Rages Higher".
I live in KY; the battle was very important. It was a tactical draw, but it kept Kentucky, a slave state, in the Union.

So I found a death certificate for her brother, Ralph and added her parents as John Wilkerson Mayfield and Martha Ellen White. I hope this is right and alright with you. Let me know.
I didn't find them on find a grave to link them to her.
Last note. I found William H. Mayfield's Findagrave memorial in Missouri and sent a request to link him to his parents.

Hi again, I did more more quick research and added a memorial for her husband (Union soldier killed at the Battle of Perryville) and a son wounded there.

Hi, Thanks very much for the information. I have corrected the death date, changed the bio, and added some additional information regarding her marriage and her husband.
|Mike Sykes||RE: Alice McConnell photo|
You're very welcome. If I can help, let me know.

You posted changes to "Infant Son Parrett". Specifically, birth as 12 Jul 1860, Fayette Co, Ohio.
I'm wondering if you would you share the source of that information.

I saw the gravestone inscription, and you are right. It might not be an exact conversion to Sep 11th because you would have to factor in the Leap Days during her life. Too much math for me! :)
Are you related to her or to her husband? The Blacklidges are cousins of mine. Her father, Jacob, and her mother, Charlotte Neville, are great-grandparents to me. My maternal great-grandmother's mother was Carlotte Blacklidge, who married Madison Forkner. Charlotte's mother was Charlotte Neville Blacklidge.

Bare with me, it is early.
I found the Cem but she is not listed there.
Do you have something that documents. or gives good reason to believe, that she was buried there?
If we have that I can transfer the memorial to that Cemetery.
