My research is mainly in Shine, Hall, McCay, Straley, Paynter, Reed, Collins, Barnett, Ballinger, Wolf, Phillips, Stafford family lines. Some of these lines start in Germany, Scotland- Ireland, and England. Some of the lines come to the US right after Jamestown from England, the ones from Ireland-Scotland come around 1700. The Germans come around 1740 and 1803. Many fought for their independence or religious freedoms in the USA or there Mother County.
Mary Elizabeth Bonnett I believe the newer tombstone photo posted on her memorial #29396035, managed by you, to be the "new" tombstone of the first wife of her grandson Samuel. This Samuel is the son of Mary Elizabeth's son Jacob. Grandson Samuel's first wife was Eliza Singer who died 15 October 1819 after giving birth to their son Perry Green on 10 October 1819. There is a marriage record for Samuel and Eliza for 24 December 1818 in the Lewis County Marriage Records on page 4 of Vol. 1. The other old stone pictured appears to be for this same Eliza. Do you know the source of the photo? Samuel married secondly, Lucinda Fitzhugh Hooe on 5 December 1820.
Ellen Wall I'll try again - must have hit something I shouldn't have. Thank you for transferring Ellen to me although it wasn't necessary. I assume you don't have any further information. Her father was a brother to my 3 great grandfather. LefflerResercher
Ellen Liffler Wall On the page for Ellen Wall (Find A Grave#77493534) in Moss Cemetery you have her maiden name as Liffler which I believe should be Leffler. As the name does not appear to be on the stone, do you have a source for it? I have been researching this family and trying to determine Ellen's descent and knowing where your information is from may help. I have a marriage record of Ellen Leffler to James Wall in Shelby County, IN on 28 Nov 1847. I would be grateful if you have any further information. LefflerResearcher
