Bio Photo A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
In loving memory of my family and friends.

I'm a proud member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. My gggg-grandfathers John Shacklett FAG #45092203, Richard Ashcraft FAG #96952717, Joseph Newton Fox FAG #47960698, Thomas Thomas FAG #56840518, Thomas Johnson FAG # 15519989, John Howlett FAG # 154414045, and John Wimp FAG #30181373, served in the Revolutionary War. John Shacklett served as a Private in Captain Nicholas Shinn's Company of Rangers. Richard Ashcraft served as an Indian scout in western Pennsylvania along the Monongahela River serving in Captain Bazil Bowell's Company. Joseph Fox served as a private in the 11th VA Regiment of the Continental Army under Captain David Steel. He spent the winter of 1777-1778 at Valley Forge. For his service he received 336 acres of land in Perry Township, Greene County, Pennsylvania, patent 15, January 15, 1814. He chose a grassy knoll on his property as his final resting place. Thomas Thomas served as a Pvt. Maryland, 3rd Regiment Maryland Line. Thomas Johnson served in a Frederick County, MD. volunteer company of Associators. John Howlett served as a Private in the 1st, 3rd. and 7th Regts. under Captains. Beatty, Price, and Beall. John Wimp served as Sergeant in Captain James Floyd's Company of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania Militia, commanded by Colonel William Chambers. John Wimp was a Mason and frequently spoke of having met General Washington in the Masonic lodge at Fairfax.

I have to laugh every time I see this quote from members who have THOUSANDS of entries on FAG: "Transfers will be made according to FAG guidelines, direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents." One man who loves to quote this has over 356,000 entries and he states that 99.99% are not related to him. He enters thousands of people who are not related to him, but makes a family member follow the direct relative four generation rule. I just can't see the logic in that.

Joseph Newton Fox
Hi! My name is Shantel Davis and I am trying to track down my family line. I have ran into the Fox family through my fathers mothers side. Joseph's daughter Elizabeth married a Myers which leads us to today. I havent the foggiest idea how to go about locating this area and was wondering if you had any tips since you had been there. I take off for Pennslyvania in 2 wks and would love to have a nice head start. If you could help at all please contact me either here or

Thank you so much for your time
God Bless & Keep Searching,
Shantel Davis

RE: Armstrong memorials?
Dixie, Let me know what Armstrong memorials I manage I can transfer to you. Although Find A Grave has those "regulations" stating we cannot transfer a memorial to "any family member who asks", I have always believed in "family is family", period!

I have thousands of memorials that I would gladly transfer to "ANY" memorial to "ANY" relation of the deceased. Family IS family.

Contact me at:, to let me know what memorials you would like me to transfer to you.

Make sure you ADD your Find A Grave ID#, please!?

re: Armstrong Family, Guthrie, OK
Dixie, I was transferring some Armstrong memorials to another Find A Grave member and noted both of you appear to be researching the same Armstrong family lines?
Her name is Staci, her Find A Grave number is 48315171. I have let her know of your possible connection.
If either of you need any help, let me know, and I will be glad to help any way I can.

I just read the newspaper article which you added to the William Howell memorial. Do you have any idea on the date of the article? Is it recent? The reason I am asking, I was in the cemetery last summer and vandals had obviously knocked over many of the stones. It was in a poor condition.

Re: Transfers
I just read the last paragraph of your profile. I agree...actually quite amazing isn't it! That is one of the few negatives I have about F A G. Most contributors are wonderful. I have only had a few people who are obviously in this for the numbers.

John Owen Thompson
I notice that your name is on several of the Thompsons page as a contributer . I am very confident due to the birthday and siblings that John Owen Thompson was my real father. My brother was a junior and I also have an older sister. He and my mother divorced when I was around a year old.
I was wondering if you would know any of his medical history and possibley what his cause of death was. I of course have no recolection of him nor dose my sister but my older brother who is also a John Owen dose.
I would appreciate any info you could give to me.
