Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired engineer living in Michigan who fills in many of his days with golf and woodworking.

But my favorite retirement activity is discovering my family genealogy history along with the stories and oral history as it has been passed down through the generations.

I have documented 7000+ family member's genealogy using MyHeritage software on a private family web site. Now I am adding some of my ancestors to Find A Grave to make some of my findings public.

Family names being researched include: Brock, Weaver, Critchlow, Yetter, Gilchrist, McFadden, Ellenberger, Orr, Miller, VanDyke, Hoffman, Stevens, Shaffer, Atwell, Snay and Ghost.

Genealogy records available for any branches of my family if you are related to one of my documented memorials. Also fell free to use any of my posted photos. Higher quality versions are usually available for the asking.

Thomas Ellis II Quaker Knob Cemetery

Above is the link to this man. The photo that you have placed here is not a 1799 stone marker. It is too new. It belongs to another Thomas Ellis in this cemetery. There is no marker for this Thomas Ellis. Could you please remove your photo.

I noticed the photo you posted on Richard Cleveland Slagles memorial.

Do you know when that photo was taken?
Are you related to the Slagle Family? If you would you care to exchange family information?

Thank you so very much for posting the photo and your work with F.A.G.

Lynn Stoops Chapel
take a look at the obit for Angela 35286601 I believe will answer the question as to links. Her father was the son of Lois Vivian and shows her as grandparent as well as Vivian Thompson I believe your were correct the 1st time in linking Lois Stevens to Alexander & Vivian Thompson

RE: Question about your FaG suggestion
Vivian Thompson
I feel I am correct as she is the sister of William who was married to Lucy Chapel my husband's Aunt. I talked with her daughter Teresa at the funeral dinner for Billy Thompson the son of William. I sent a note to Teresa after I ask for a link. Waiting for an answer back. Also will contact her niece Vivian who has good info on our family and will get back with you so we will have good info. I can tell you that all of William & Lucy's children were name sakes of the Thompson family and this is where cousin Vivian got her name. But ok to hold off until I get with real family members so we are
for sure. I think your were correct the lst time and I think she belongs with this Thompson family.

Fergus Moorhead
I have been researching the Moorhead family and came across an extended bio on Find A Grave, which you apparently provided. It indicates that Fergus' parents were Samuel, and Euphemia Fergus, from Dublin, Ireland. Can you tell me, please, the source of your information?

Thank you very much.

Webster family bible
I see you made a page for Levi Webster.
I was just looking at old family bibles on EBay and saw one with Levi Webster's family bible with a bunch of family info written into it from the 1800's.
Then I went looking for someone on Find A Grave to see if I could find anybody who might be interested in this priceless treasure.
Just search EBay with this and you will find it=
