Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching my ancestors and their descendants:

Paternal: Kirby, Christoffersen, Follett, Niles, Morrill, Stokes, Hansen, Gibson, Woolf, Irons, Jorgensen.
Maternal: Hamilton, Hester, Jones, Owens, Chandler, Copeland, Bartlett, Orr, Mitchell and Judd (among others).

I've also created many memorials for unrelated people and total strangers including many from local cemeteries in New Mexico and other places. If you want a transfer for any of these, let me know. Not really in it for the numbers or personal credit but more of a public service. Its not about me but them.

My fathers side of the family are largely pioneers who joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mom's side were Baptists and Methodists and a few colorful characters from the southern United States.

I hope the legacy of my memorials will enable others to find and know their ancestors, to preserve our history and to honor those who have gone before us and made us who we are.

Thanks to the many photo volunteers, folks who have added details and links and others who have collaborated in this effort.

If you have corrections, additional information, pictures or would like to add links, let me know and your or I can add them to the memorials I have created.

You are free to use any photo or other data I have added for person use or for family history or for use on ancestry.com or other family history web sites.

I've tried to connect as may of my relatives as I can find in findagrave.

Check out my tree (jayfollett on ancestry.com. I have around 10000+ people in this tree (and growing).

Thanks and happy hunting.

Jay

P.S. When I started using findagrave there were less than 20 million names. Pretty amazing site.

I recently took ancestry.com DNA test and I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs a boost in identifying ancestors and their descendants

Copeland Family
Greetings,

We are cousins through the Copeland Line. I connect to the Copeland line through Elizabeth McQueen 1806-1880, the daughter of Osborne McQueen 1781-1841 and Elizabeth Copeland 1776-1831.

My Elizabeth McQueen and Husband Robert Ustain Orr joined the LDS Church in Scotland and then immigrated to Grantsville, Tooele, Utah in 1853. Elizabeth McQueen is my 3rd Great Grandmother.

So you have Mormon Pioneers on the Copleland side as well.

I just recently started working on my Scottish ancestors and have found a great deal of information including your line. I have the Copelands going back to 1720. A Copeland fought in the Revolutionary War.

I would love to correspond with you concerning this Copeland line.

I was born and raised in a suburb of Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah. My normal email is russellhc@comcast.net.

Your distant cousin Craig Russell

Horace Gammon
I wonder if I could get some details about the information you posted on Horace Gammon. You have his middle name as Luville, which is a rather uncommon name. I have a gravestone marker here in Maine for Luville F. Gammon, son of Horace Gammon (and Sarah Russell), and I am interested in learning what kind of information you have.

My email address is rarollins2003@yahoo.com ... thanks for any help you can give me.

RE: Charles Orr
Yes I did get the other half of the headstone. I will send it. Cemeteries are no longer willing to help find loved ones, so if decided to walk the cemetery. I'm up there all the time:)

Dorothy Grant Memorial Grave Photo
I just wanted to thank you for posting the picture of our Grandma's headstone at Vista Verde Memorial Park in Rio Rancho, NM. Grandad passed this morning and I found this while looking up her cemetery location. It is very nice to have this, and your efforts are appreciated.

Gary family
Lordsburg, NM. Jay, thank you for being so considerate in adding bio. to the memorials. Some don't seem to want to do that. What is odd about my looking up the information on Carlton Banks Austin, was because at one time he was my grandmother's physician, and I remembered her mentioning him. After he passed away it was Dr. Baxter who delivered me in 1946.
And I never knew that he had sisters in the area. And I have some property at GARY, NM so I was curious about this family. Somewhere I have a picture of James Gary's station there at Steins. Small world isn't it?
(probably more than what you wanted to know, LOL!)
Anyway, Lordsburg still has a special place in my heart.
