Bio and Links
Bio Photo I now live in Michigan but was born in Walton County, Georgia.

On my maternal side, family names include Burgess, Elder, Michael, Fambrough, Lowe and Maxey - primarily in Walton, Oconee, Clarke, Oglethorpe and Greene Counties in Georgia. The families arrived in America before the Revolution. I have several books covering those families and am happy to do look-ups.

My parvenu paternal side arrived from Ireland in the 1850s and 1860s, settling in Harrison, Hudson County, New Jersey. Surnames include Donnelly, Hughes, Casey, McGarrity and Holleran.

I would be happy to help with research in my local area and exchange information about family connections. As most grave sites are in deep snow here in western Michigan November through March, I can be of more help in Spring and Summer.

With a very few exceptions, I am happy to transfer any memorial not of my direct family line. The exceptions are a few very close friends or family members with a special connection.

A message including the word "please" will receive a much better reception.

I owe many thanks to the FindAGrave photo volunteers who have so kindly assisted in the compilation of the history of my family lines.

Happy searching and enjoy the chase!

I'm pretty sure Merf added the info. for the father since she is usually the one who adds that info. supposedly from funeral records. I removed him.

Sadly I don't save the photos so I'll see what I can do about updating the info on the original one and delete the one I created when I'm done. Chances are this can occur again as the grave doesn't have their full name. Something I can totally understand due to it is rather long.

Saw your posting for Bridget Krog. She was my grandfather Michael Kelly's sister. Curious how you are related; have information on the Kelly side if you are interested

Above is Harold Featherson's story on the Chester County Hall of Heroes web site.

I added the death certificate to your Lucy Featherson.

RE: Featherstone Marker Photo
You welcome and taken care of. I searched for George Featherstone as well for an hour, if he's there he's trying to not be found. Ill stop by the office when I'm around again and see if they can point me to it.
