Bio and Links
Bio Photo One of the best features of Find A Grave is that it provides a forum where years of genealogical research can be shared with others. Please let me know if you have additional biographical or statistical information for any of my memorials, as it is always welcome. The wealth of knowledge that others have sent to me through Find A Grave is astounding.

If you are aware of links for parents and/or spouses that I have not yet added, I would appreciate it if you would use the edit tab to leave the name and memorial number of the person or people who should be linked.

Thanks to all those who have generously shared your family stories and beautiful photos with me. I sincerely appreciate being allowed to add them to the memorials for your loved ones. The pictures and studio portraits that for years have been carefully preserved in family photo albums, add such a wonderful dimension to Find A Grave. They help create a memorial tribute that is all the more special and meaningful.

Before asking for a memorial transfer, please determine whether or not this is really necessary. Transfers of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections even if you are not the memorial manager. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a transfer request. It would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire family trees.

Transfers will only be considered if they comply strictly with Find A Grave guidelines. You must state your exact relationship to the deceased. People who request transfers and then fail to improve and maintain the memorial are certainly not honoring the memory of their family member.

Bulk surname transfers will not be considered under any circumstances.

Unless otherwise noted, all bios on my memorials were researched and written by me. Post-1922 verbatim obituaries have not been included in order to avoid copyright violations.

I have put a lot of time and effort into my memorials on Find A Grave. I strive to make sure that the information on them is as accurate as possible, but I am realistic and know that mistakes do happen. Please use the edit tab to leave a message regarding any errors or omissions that need to be corrected.

By working together, we can continue to build Find A Grave into a better and better site!


Note: 30 Sep 2013 marked a very sad day for all Find A Grave contributors when the founder of this website sold us out to

I will continue to add to and maintain my memorials as long as Find A Grave remains a completely free website, open to all without charge.

One more time, then riding my bike!
You will note that Spencer may have had a "phantom" marriage (Jane Shepard?) and that Elizabeth also seems to have had one with John Sprenckel.
There is remarkably little evidence that either of these people existed.
The Sprenckel/Sprinkles were Germans out of Pennsylvania, with a prominent John Jacob in the background, and Elizabeth has the "famous" name Jacob in marriage return, but her dau's obit says "John."

Addendum re my posting
There are some duplicate folks: a floating Elizabeth Campbell and Mabel Seik in that GEDCOM. I was so bleary-eyed last night (this morning) from working on these that I did not do a good clean-up on the file. Please keep that link for future reference, I have a research network with two SPOKT sites and a YDNA project. If you are interested in either, let me know, they are very SLATEN-centric, with some (not many) images of these families. However, the results of the research (by my lights) will always show on the RootsWeb posting. I refuse to use Ancestry Trees for anything, the public ones are totally corrupted. Let's just hope that they do not bulldozer over RootsWeb (they own that too) the way someone did over the Salem Cemetery.

RE: Elizabeth Cockshott
It is complicated. One of Spencer's sons d 1933 and the informant gave Jane Shepard as mother, which I very much doubt. Spencer mar at least 2, but they seem to be Mary and Elizabeth. Another of the women in the probate, Fannie produced Roscoe, and he mar Mabel Seik, whose mother was Irene SLATEN.
I have been wanting to get these mems for years, because online linking really helps, even though I am leary of most such links.
Rather than both of us reinventing the wheel, please check here:

RE: John Slayton
Hello and thank you for your contributions to my families info. On my grandmother's page Virginia Denson her last husband is listed as Benson, when it should be Denson. Besides that it looks great. Thanks again.

Ray weaver died on new years day 1971. He is buried right beside grandpa clark. I don't know anything about a half sister. He may in fact have had one.

Adam and Agnes Forbes as parents of Richard Tate "Dick" Forbes
Just was curious as to how you arrived at Granpa Dick's parents. I see the Scottish census, but I expect there were lots of people named Richard Forbes. do you have any other evidence or source for Adam and Agnes? I am not disagreeing with you, only hoping for more concrete proof or connection.
thank you for all your hard work and research.
