Bio and Links
I began FAG search in order to enter a grandparent I knew was buried in a certain cemetery, and just kept adding Missing names to sites. I did not intend to add hundreds of names, just want to have all the kin I can find entered in FAG, and the numbers of ancestors just kept growing, which was a pleasant surprise. It has so far been rewarding and I have heard from many people regarding my family. If I am not a close or direct descendent, I will usually turn them over if I am asked and you are also related.

Ruth Ballantine Memorial# 37524511
Hi Marilyn!

Nice to "meet" you! I'm trying to reconcile the "Chapin" maiden name for Ruth Ballantine. I myself am a Chapin descendant (8th ggrandson of Deacon Samuel Chapin) and I have only one "Ruth" but not one who married a Ballantine.

It's interesting to see where we find little details for our family histories. Are you also a Chapin Descendant? I have a Facebook page called Descendants of Deacon Samuel Chapin which you can view at http://bit.ly/Descendants-of-Deacon-Samuel-Chapin.

If you don't mind, can you give me some details on Ruth? Perhaps you know here parents or grandparents?

Thanks!

Hi Marilyn, I've added the information of the husbands to Mary's bio. But I think you meant that she married her 2nd husband in 1825 not 1925? Regards, Nadeen

Yes, I know that her middle name is her first husband's last name - this is not an error. Not unusual for this practice in those years.

Aaron Chapin - 90945884
Hi Marilyn - you wrote - "I am questioning that this Aaron Chapin is the son of Phineas. Phineas did not marry until 1783, according to any records I can find and it was to Love Hurd, and no child Aaron of this marriage. I think this Aaron is the son of Phineas' brother Charles (1752-1813) as Charles did have a son Aaron with the same birth and death years. I cannot read the bottom of the grave stone photo. I would like to link him with the correct father and mother as I have the Find A Grave memorial numbers to both Charles and Phineas. Please check as I have no official birth records for Aaron."

This info was from Oakwood Cemetery's register - so if you have correct info (and parent's memorial numbers) - please send it along and I can apply the corrections.

Thanks!
Tom

RE: William Vaughn
Marilyn,

Thank you so much for the quick response and for transferring those Find A Grave memorials to me. I am beginning to realize what a great task making and keeping these memorials is...thanks for doing all you obviously do for so many. :)

I would absolutely love spending a few hours in the Nora Springs/Floyd County library.

You are more than welcome. It certainly is a unique monument. I have finally decided that it is two whales...mother and child?

Thank you for the quick response. You are one of two people posting updates for him. The other one is a very long way off in relationship.
