|Bio and Links|
I am an avid ancestry nut!! I was encouraged all my life by my father to be proud of our diverse family roots in America. From New England,Edward Doty of the Mayflower, to Indiana and speading throughout this great country. I have made connections with distant relatives all over the world. My family lines are outlined in my virtual cemeteries.As you my well guess almost 400 years of family ancestry encompasses numerous,diverse and interesting people from my past.|
I would be happy to correct any information,add bios or family links. I would be happy to transfer a memorial to a direct relative via the edit tab on the memorial. Most of my memorials are on my direct lines.
You have my permission to use any of the photos I have submitted for your personal use. I am always glad to help with your ancestry search.
Thanks to all those interested and dedicated Gravers who have sent edits my way. Please accept this as my deepest thanks for your help in completing my memorials.

Cathy, I'm not related. Just doing some searching for an old friend. Thanks for asking.

Help! No memorial number.
|Carol Hege||RE: Johnston grave photos|
Hi, Cathy. I was just up to the cemetery and was able to read the three flat stones. In addition to Laura's, the other two are: Russell and (surprise) Catherine. The stones really need to be trimmed and cleaned to get a good shot, but it was 28 degrees (up to 34, now). I am happy to do this on a warmer day, but it may be next spring till that happens! I am pleased, though, that I was able to locate Catherine. I found a couple of pictures of her in the 1935 and 1939 Carson Long yearbooks on Ancestry.com.
|Sue||RE: Sterrett Lightner|
Thank you for your kind offer but he is such a distant relative of my husband's, I think you must be closer.

I found another Johnston stone today. The only inscription was "Johnston." Then I looked down and saw three flat stones, which were so overgrown that I could barely read them. One of them was Laura's. I will go up again some day with my clippers and get a good shot of them for you.
|Carol Hege||RE: Johnson grave photos|
Oh I can easily do that for you. I live just down the street, so when this cold rain clears out, I'll make a trip up to the cemetery. Is their stone in the same area?
|David Mayo||RE: John Ribble in Silverbrook|
Thank you. He's not related to me either. I just came across his obituary and thought it would be a nice addition to his memorial.

It took me a minute to get back to you because I get all verklempt when I'm dealing with our little Elizabeth.
Since before I started walking this cemetery, her face has been confronting me every time I opened the request page. She wasn't demanding; in fact, she was humble in waiting for her turn, and confident that I would find her. She haunted me.
As luck would have it, she was in a part of the cemetery that I would hit when I had just a few minutes to spend. As it turns out, I was within fifteen feet of her grave way back when I started this project in July, but I ducked out and went to the bigger blocks.
I almost cried when I found her. Just sitting there, demanding nothing, knowing that she's on the easternmost edge of the cemetery, and if you believe scripture, she'll be the first to rise. If you don't, at least she gets a nice sunrise each day. :)
I'm glad we were able to find her final resting place. And I'm honored that I was the one to be able to post her photo.
|Kathy Davidson||RE: Wilbur/Hicks|
Hello Cathleen, so sorry that we are just now getting back to you. Yes, the photo is of my husband and his Wilbur family (Wilbur/Hicks). His great-great grandparents were George Wilbur & Angelina Hicks (Isaac Wilbur's parents). I will try to email you a photo of Angela and her family.
Isaac Wilbur was Civil War veteran and is buried in Santa Ana (Orange County), California. There is quite a bit of information about him here.
We recently learned that there are Wilbur relatives buried in Long Beach, CA. When we visit I will post the photos on Find A Grave.
If you information or photos you could share we'd greatly appreciate it. We do not know much about the Hicks family but are eager to learn.
Thank you, Kathleen -

It is easy to be fast when someone else has done all the work ;-). Do you want me to transfer these memorials to your attention?
