Bio and Links
I am seeking to identify and locate "all" of my grandmothers and grandfathers that have lived in the colonies or USA. I also try to include my Aunts, Uncles and first cousins for each generation. My direct Cary ancestors first arrived in VA about 1663, they moved to MD in 1668, then on to DE, then through Ohio and now rest in peace in IL.

Walt, send me your e-mail again so that I can write you about finding her grave. I thought I had it but my e-mail came back undeliverable. Just send me a note on James Jones' memorial, 122106946. Thanks.

Found his obit. Looks like it gives a slightly differnent place of birth than his draft card. Haven't really had a chance to dig into it. I know you were interested.

RE: Iola Pierard
Hi Walt. Well things are getting interesting here. I really don't know too much about my Aunt Iola except what I passed to you before but I am interested----I don't know anything about the name Burns. Iola Carter Pierard, had a son named Henry. She was either a half sister or something to Eleanor Wyatt. Henry or Sonny as I knew him was about 12 years older than me, about the same as my brother (I came along late). I just always considered him my cousin didn't even know his last name was different from mine. Aunt Iola and Sonny were dark skinned--I didn't think about that difference either because my mothers parents were from Italy and they were a little dark as well. Sonny passed away several years ago and I his wife has also passed. I may have to see if I can locate any of their children-they are in California. Keep in touch. Have a wonderful weekend and take care. carol

RE: Iola Pierard
Hi Walt. My Uncle Victor Pierard married Iola Carter. That was her married name and the maiden name was Peeck (not really sure of the spelling) Don't know of any other Iola Pierard's from Gillespie. My other aunts were, Reba, and Gertrude (aka Gertie) cb

James Joseph O'Donnell
Walt, As you have in depth background on the McLaughlin family, can you assist me with the parents of James Joseph O'Donnell. He was the husband of Catherine G. McLaughlin O'Donnell.

RE: Sr. Mary Claver
Walt, I guess that makes us cousins at some point. My wife, Irene O'Donnell and I recently moved from So Cal to Phoenix. We are working on the Find a Grave and Ancestry sites with our son Brian and my brother Thomas. Currently we are trying to build the O'Donnell branch of the tree. Any suggestions? Also I have reached out to Angel Peck-Rodriguez regarding the Peck family, as my Grandmother Catherine worked for a Peck family in the 50's as a cook.

I am impressed with your work on this site. Please keep in touch. My e-mail address is

Sr. Mary Claver
I found a public message on your bio regarding Sr. Mary Claver.

Sr. Mary Claver is my Grandmother's biological sister. Are you also related to Sr. Claver?

Hi Walt. I found his obit in the Springfield newspaper, dated 11-2-1954. It states he died 10-31-1954 in Enumclaw, Wash. and was buried in Buckley, Wash. Stated he was survived by his wife Mabel and three sons, Harold, Edwin and Gordon, all of Washington. Since Mabel is listed on this tombstone as having died in 1937, did he remarry another woman named Mable? In any case, I will delete his memorial in Oak Ridge since he is not buried there. If you want me to send you his obit, send me your e-mail though this memorial: 46383295. Thanks.

Sr. Mary Claver McLaughlin
Hi, Walt. The initials "IHM" behind Sr. Mary's name stand for "Immaculate Heart of Mary", and these same initials are behind the name of every sister of her order. That said, I have included her birth name as you requested, and also transferred her memorial to you since you are related. Thanks for contacting me, and take care.

Thank you for correcting my typo for Samantha. I must have completely skipped seeing that 'n' for a few years now.
