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.

RE: Jane Patton Braham Dugan
I wish I could say that I was jealous of you heading to Florida! But I love snow days, it's the only time I can make myself take a break from work. Of course, I'm only in Virginia. Might feel differently if I was in Michigan! Have fun.

Correction: Alexander Gilbert Dugan was my husband's great-great-grandfather (there is another Alexander Dugan that was his great-uncle).

Jane Patton Braham Dugan
Hello. Believe that you have attached her to the incorrect Alexander Dugan. Alexander Gilbert Dugan was my husband's great-great Uncle and was married to Maria Dunn.

RE: Lafayette McFadden
Yes, the death certificate was the source for all the updates that I suggested.
Actually the death certificate says his first name is Tifney and it does not have a middle name or initial listed for him.
If there is any other info from the death certificate that you would like, such as cause of death, let me know.

I have added Bertha's info from the cemetery records on her page. I did not look for an obit as she died in Missouri, according to those records. Her place of birth was given as Michigan, so I changed her page to reflect that. That conflicts with the info you had sent.

Thanks for the info on Bertha, which I have added to her page. Would you like me to find an obit for her to add, also?

Thomas Ellis
You say that Thomas is "NOT" the son of Rowland Ellis born in 1650. I have had to trust other peoples info on that.

If not Rowland then who is is father? How do you know Rowland is not his father?

Thomas & Jame (Hughes) Ellis are my 6th great grandparents

Mary Anna Harmon Ellenberger
You are correct regarding Mary's place of internment. I have a copy of her death certificate on my family tree if you have a moment to check it out. I also sent you information regarding her birth and death dates.

RE: Dup FaG Memorial 52939846
Thanks Jack I noticed a few dups when I was updating info on the cemetery. I agree that nothing should be lost, sometimes just emailing for a merge is the quickest and simplest approach. I am not sure if the other contributor is still active, its been quite a few years since the original memorials were created, but one never knows anymore. :-)

thanks, Erin
