Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello! I have been working on my family genealogy/history for a number of years (!!) and would like to thank all those who have made contributions to Find A Grave....I finally got around to making contributions, at first involving mostly my 'immediate' family (450 memorials by now), but now mostly non-family.

Paternal ancestor surnames include: Wesley, Taylor, Randolph, Wilson, Huff, Craig, Smiley, Higgins, Pierce, Simpson, Thompson, Walker, Goodall, Campbell, Carson, Downing, Minor, Ford, Aiken, Hampton, Amend, McMillan, McCollum, Trumbo, Custer, Brown, Sutherland & Hale.
Maternal ancestor names include: Garden, Spreng, Baird, Coble, Horner, Merckle, Young, Stoner, Matthews, Barrett, Clark, Holsworth, Witten, Brandenberry, Murdock, Streeter, Knosp, Faber & Wells.

Ancestry includes English, Scottish, Irish, French-Speaking Germans and German-Speaking Germans.

The current Findagrave project on which I have been heavily involved, with other contributors, is to create a complete listing of the burials of the Stafford (Kansas) Cemetery. Most of the names are established already. Now we are making links and adding marker photos and obituaries/biographies to the memorials. Making excellent progress.....!!

Colin Campbell d 1936 CA
I'm a relative (way down the line). I do believe Agnes Campbell Thomson was his younger sister. (Their parents were Daniel and Margaret Campbell, from Scotland, settling in Cleveland OH.) Do you have any other info you could share? Are you a descendant of this Campbell family?

George and Grace are buried at Lewisville Cemetery
Lewisville, Henry County, Indiana. It's been about 10 years since I have been there, but I have pictures somewhere, I'll see if I can find those.
You're welcome to create the memorial. I'm new here and happy to contribute in this way at this time.
Ransom Arthur is buried in Goldendale, WA. And I think Bessie (Hodge) is at Science Hill. Kelley and Maggie (Hall) are at Shady Grove, KY.

Wesley Cemetery
In earlier postings you refer to a Wesley Cemetery. Where is that located?
I, too, descend from William and Delilah Goodall Wesley.
William T. Wesley (1750 - 1812)>Robert "Robin" Wesley (1775 - 1853) >Thomas Ray Wesley (1799 - 1860) >
George Taylor Wesley (1824 - 1897) > Ephriam Franklin Wesley (1870 - 1954) > Ransom Arthur Wesley (1903 - 1963) >Vada May Wesley

My daughter has these Wesleys/Hines on her LaBRUE Family Tree.

I'm always interested in contacting other Wesley family members. My research has lead me Indiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Washington, and more. Fun and addictive!!

RE: Winfield Secord
You are welcome! The niche is at the very top of a tall columbarium so I zoomed in the best I could. Glad it is readable - it was way over my head!
