I am from Portsmouth , Scioto County , Ohio . I enjoy Genealogy and the research of my many Family Tree lines. I also visit Cemeteries of my Ancestors and record their history .
I have found out many interesting things about my Family Tree . I have discovered that I have deep " Dutch " roots that trace back to Colonial NEW Netherlands( America) before 1642, some 130 years before the American Revolution. I also have many family ancestors that trace back to early New England Colonial-American families. Many of my Family lines trace back to England , France , Netherlands , Ireland and Scotland . One Family branch the " Coryell / Coriell " used to hang out with George Washington during the American Revolution .* see Coryell Ferry 1776 .
Perhaps the most interesting , is that I am related to the " Gorsuch " family that settled Baltimore, Maryland in the mid 1600's. My Gorsuch ancestors are descendend from " Royal Lines " of Europe , including many Kings and Queens of England ,France , Spain , Scotland and more..
I also have many German & Prussian Immigrant lines from the mid 1800's .
later , many of my family ancestors migrated west and became early pioneers & settlers of Kentucky and Ohio . I am connected to many of the Earliest Families of Scioto County Ohio .
feel free to contact me , I am willing to help other families to obtain a gravesite photo of their ancestors in Scioto County . I am happy to photograph their ancestors for them .
I also want Find-a-Grave Volunteers to send photos of the Gravesites of my family ancestors that I cannot travel to... I have Many out of State Gravestites that I would like photographed...
* infant child , probably the child of Abner B. Wood and wife Rebecca ( Campbell ) Wood.
William Wood was actually born to Theophilas R Wood and Chloe Renfro Wood. Abner B. and Rebecca Campbell Wood are the grandparents, and had stopped having children before William's birth in 1822. William also had a twin brother, John, who lived to adulthood.
Do you want more information, or can you change the note just based on the above info?
Thank you so much--they are my ancestors! Lynn McClure email@example.com (916) 247-4816
Horance Hayward I am helping a lady here in town with some of her family history.
Her line is:
Horance Hayward Orange Hayward Grace Hayward McDowell DeWinta McDowell Hammond (went back to maiden name though) Cecilia Hammond Rose
She just today stated she wished she had a picture of Horance to put on her Wall Of Honor. She has many members of family that were in the service. She knew Horance was GAR. Now I can share with her that there is a pic of him online! Horance's son Orange is buried here in Palisade, NE and many family members so if you need any pics from here just let us know

Happy hunting. Kay
I love helping others with their research and to have a photo! That would be so cool. Perhaps one day one of their descendents will happen upon the page and we will have helped them fill in some blanks. :)
