Bio and Links
Bio Photo While I have always been fascinated by graveyards, my interest in genealogy started only a few years ago when I started researching my 2nd great grandfather, who died in the Civil War. During that research, I came across this site and my Grandfather Purcell was my first memorial here. Since then, I have found many of my ancestor's gravesites already listed and I have created many more. It's been a fascinating and educating journey.

Most of my father's relatives were of Irish/Scotch/English descent and from Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana, via Philadelphia, Long Island, and Baltimore. My mother's family was among the early Danish immigrants to the Stonington Peninsula in Delta County, Michigan.

Unfortunately, I am a fair distance from all those places and am unable to regularly visit the graves of my family. Find a Grave is the next best thing. I have found many helpful people here that share my interest in preserving our past.

The names I am actively researching are Petersen, Bonefeld, Hoi, Iversen, Allen, Armstrong, Atkinson, Purcell, Ferry, Pollock, Wood, Wiley, Coe and many others.

I will gladly transfer any memorial of persons to whom I am not related to anyone that is a relative. If I am related to a person and a requestor is a closer relative, I will also be glad to make the transfer. Please make any transfer requests, corrections, or Family linkage requests via the Edit tab on the memorial.

Please be aware that, while I am happy to post obituaries, I will remove the names of individuals that are still living beforehand.

Important: Please include the Memorial Number of parents and spouses when requesting links. I can no longer accept links without this number. I get several requests each day and your update will get done quicker with the memorial number.

RE: Col. Melancton Smith
Following is the latest email from John Weingarden. Based on the information from you and John, I will correct the profile for Anne Green Smith. Thanks, Daniel!

What led me to contact you was that you had listed Anne Greene Smith's Find a Grave in Woodlawn. I happened to locate Rear Admiral Melancton Smith in the same Cemetery A
graduate of the US Naval Academy he was retired from active service and living with his sister in Green Bay after the death of his wife Mary in
1885. He is the Grandson of Melancton Smith 1744-1798 who was active in the Revolution serving in the Continental Army and participated in the framing of our constitution as a delegate from NY. Anyway I saw that someone posted
Ann Greene Smith as his spouse on his find a Grave. I clicked on her name and it brought me to your listing. Its rare that two unrelated men with the a distinctive name in seperate branches of the military wind up in the same place. If you had not posted the photo of Annes marker with the US Army posted on it, would still be scratching my head. After finding the pension
document showing the Col Melancton Smith US Army, with widow Anne Smith
residing WI receiving his military Pension for his 1812 service it explained everything. The Melancton Smith posted as her spouse 1810-1893 was born too late to be in the war of 1812.
Your friend Daniel Allen posted the correct information on the Admiral's site, the error is just that they connected her to the wrong man to be her spouse.I did not see another Melancton Smith listed in Woodlawn on find a grave but your listing for Anne from what I can read of the marker says wife of Melancton Smith US Army. If he's not buried there with Anne it has to
be at another location. Anyway thanks for your quick response.
