Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love family reseach, have for the last 10 years or so. My mom started with most and I'm continuing from where she left off.

I live in Mesa, Arizona.

There's memorials that I have listed when I go to graves to get photo requests, I also get ones that don't have grave photos or not listed. I will transfer their memorial to you, if you want, as long as their not related to me.

I have a dog that goes ghouling (what my husband calls it) with me. I try very hard not to get him in the pic but every once in a while I do. If there is a pic with a part of him and if you don't like it please let me know and I will retake the pic. I try to edit him out and sometimes some part of him is still showing. Sorry, but he is my buddy that goes everywhere I go.

You may of course, use the photos I take.

Buried right next to John and his wife are Jonnie and Edith Kimball. I think it is John's son and wife. If you want to request them I will gladly post the pictures.

RE: Hepsabeth Coffin phot request
Hi Rebecca,
You're welcome! This lot (and lot 93) appear to have been "owned" by the Horton Family (specifically Nicholas Horton, at one time). By looking at the lot reports for each lot and burial reports for each person buried here on, you may be able to fiqure out how Hepsabeth was related to or came to be buried in this lot with the Hortons and Macy's.

Hepsabeth Coffin phot request
Hi Rebecca,
I was in Section 47 Lot 92 at spring Grove Cemetery. I was unable to locate a marker for Hepsabeth Coffin in this lot. There were only 2 markers in this lot. One is for Mary Ann Smith and the other was for Eliza Macy, John Macy and their son James Alexander Macy. According to the cemetery records, there are 14 people buried in this lot, but these 2 markers are the only ones that remain here. I added a picture of Mary Ann Smith's marker to her memorial. Eliza, John and Jamces Macy's marker was previously added by someone else.

Jacob Warren McCraw 60335692
Hi Rebecca,
This Jacob Warren was known as "Jake".
He was born 1 Nov 1817 and died 11 Apr 1883.
He married Nancy Adeline Spencer on 21 May 1851 in Surry County, NC.
Their children were:

Sabrina Elizabeth (b abt 1852)
Mordeci (b 5 Jan 1854)
Sarah Ann "Sally" (b 20 Apr 1855)
William Riley (b 15 Aug 1856)
Samuel Jefferson "Sam" (b 26 May 1858)
Nancy Jane "Sis" (b 28 Apr 1860)
Jacob Warren "Bonus" (b 15 Jan 1865; d 15 Apr 1934. Please link to Findagrave Memorial #9516401)
Martha Frances "Fannie" (b 8 Apr 1871)

Would you add this to his bio? Or if you want me to manage his memorial, I am happy to do so. He was my ggggrandfather. Thanks so much!

RE: The Many Francis Marion McCraws
Hi Rebecca,
Thank you. I did some more research and have sourced/documented this info for at least these Five Francis Marions:

Five Francis Marions

1. Francis 1725-1788, son of William of Skye
2. Francis 1758-1839, son of William II, m. Sarah Burris
3. Francis 1803-1872, son of Francis 1758-1839, m. Mary Sarah "Sallie" Spencer Newman (probably 2nd wife)
4. Francis 1820-1896, son of William "Buck", m. Nancy Buckley
5. Francis 1850-1928, son of Francis 1820-1896, m. Susan Sprinkle (2nd wife)

So Francis (60347577) was not the husband of Sallie Spencer Newman, but he was the nephew of her husband, Francis Marion, and the son of my ancestor, William "Buck" McCraw (60335431).

I can send you a copy of the 1870 Census that shows both Francis (they were next door neighbors) with their wives & children, living in the Fancy Gap Township of Carroll County, VA.

Do you have the "It's McCraw, not McGraw" book? I think that book has some errors. Can't find my jump drive copy at the moment. But let's work together to get the McCraws sorted out on FindAGrave. I have lots of info on the line from William II, William I, Francis Marion (1758-1839), William "Buck" and so on. I will try to add my relatives that are missing so we can link them up. Nice to meet a cousin online!

The Many Francis Marion McCraws
Hi Rebecca,

I am still trying to keep straight all of the Francis McCraws, but I am wondering if something isn't quite right with your Francis #60347577, especially since he shows a sibling named Francis and I am in a muddle with them all.

Here's what I have on the five Francis Marion McCraws in my line:

A. Francis 1st 1725-1788, son of William of Skye

B. Francis the Patriot 1758-1839, son of William II & grandson of William of Skye, m. Sarah (Sally) Burris

C. Francis, Jr. 1780-, son of Francis the Patriot

D. Francis son of William "Buck" & grandson of Francis the Patriot, 1820-1896, m. Nancy Bookley/Buckley

E. Francis II, son of Francis & grandson of William "Buck", 1850-1928, m. Susan Sprinkle

I am not sure which Francis married Sarah Spencer Newman in 1863, but she definitely married a Francis McCraw and had a son by him named Timothy Logan McCraw after her patriot grandfather.

Can you offer any help?
