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, then moved to MD in 1668, then on to DE, then through Ohio and now rest in peace in IL.

RE: Wilbert Land
Yes, Wilbert Clark Land was Grandmother Pauline's first husband. They had four children, three boys and a daughter. If I can help in any other way I'll be happy to.

Ok, found a later funeral notice that stated she was buried in Oak Ridge. I think you best call or write Oak Ridge about this as they did not record her burial so it's up in the air which publication is correct.

Charlotte Creighton new listing
Hi Walt. Because I know all of the burials up through 1940 have already been added to Oak Ridge, I double-checked their records. They have no one by her name on their records. I then found her obituary and it stated she was to be buried in Bissell Cemetery in Sangamon County. Would you please move her listing to that cemetery? I can send you the obituary if you want. Send me your e-mail through the Edit tab on memorial 35952620 and then I will send it. Thanks.

Hi Walt,

Thank you for the edit, I had the date but not record and I have seen Malinda's name spelled with an a and with e. Would you mind emailing me I have a question for you.

RE: Mary Crane 29457325
You're very welcome. And by the way, I asked the member who added her photos to kindly rotate the photos but she didn't seem to know how to fix it. If you drop her a note, that might give her a nudge to try again. :) Happy 4th!

Mary Crane 29457325
Hi Walt. I found her obit. Looks like where she died was Dawson rather than Mechanicsburg, but take a look and see what you think. Send me an edit if you want to change it. Also, look at her husband Charles' obit that I added. Appears he remarried to a woman named Florence. He also died in Dawson. Thanks.

RE: Charlotte Conlin Sprinkle
You can trace back quite a few generations on the Sprinkle family through the Find A Grave memorials. I think it's really cool when so many generations can be linked.

Sprinkle memorial
Thanks for the heads up on the duplication of Charlotte Conlin Sprinkle Nash's memorial. Since the other was created before mine, I deleted mine. I re-linked everyone. All should be well now.

RE: Betts memorials
Hi Walt! I'm not blood related to Ida on the Carey side, so I transferred her over to you! :)
