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.

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.

RE: 141178896 Thomas Lee Glaeser
OK...just wanted to make sure you had Adrian. That is great that you have lineage clear back to Germany for the Glaeser's. They are very lucky to have someone like you working on their ancestry. Have a great day.

RE: 141178896 Thomas Lee Glaeser
Walt...thanks for your answering me. I Have know all the Glaeser family for many years. I met Tom and Terry in the early 70's and their parents during that time too. It was a year or so later that I met Dick and Suzette. You mentioned turning over the Glaeser's to Terry and Jennie. They have not been married for many years. Both have since remarried and Jennie lost her husband last year. Terry married a lady by the name of Adrian.

Again thanks and I am glad someone is keeping up on their records.

Walt....I am requesting transfer of this memorial to me. I have been a family friend of Tom's for over 47 years. If not possible that is ok too and I will delete my listing after I hear back from you. Thank you.

Cary family
Walt, I just noticed on your family surname list that the Cary's are related to you and they seem to be in Illinois. However, a very old cemetery, Greenfield Presbyterian, which we are trying to restore) in LaGrange County, IN. It has an Andrew Cary and family buried in it, late 1830s. Andrew was an organizing elder at Lima Presbyterian Church in the village of Howe, IN, nearby. He left to become a organizing elder at Greenfield Presbyterian in the adjacent township. Miriam C.
