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.

Please do not use any material written by me for any other genealogy sites such as without permission.

Find A Grave rules state "Biographical information and obituaries are not to be included in a Virtual flower." If those bios and obits occur on any of my memorials, a request will be made for removal. Bio information can be requested on the edits section.

Nina Edith Miller Weisbard
Hi. I seen your name in the memorial for Nina, so I'm dropping you a line. I'm not positive on this, but Nina (# 66525380) could very well be the younger sister of William H Miller (# 128059983), who was my great-great grandmother Josephine Alice Miller Cole's first husband. I am researching William's (b. 1860) siblings, which include Christina (b. 1863), Alexander (b. 1865), Albert (b. 1869), Josie (b. 1873), Nina (b. 1876) and Amelia (b. 1879). If you have any info regarding this family, might you please share it with me.
Thank you very much!

RE: Sarah Catherine Giddens Brakebill
Hi Marilyn,

I believe I have corresponded with you before, sending you the death certificate of Peter Melville Brakebill. To answer your question, Sarah Catherine Giddens Brakebill is buried at the Duncan Cemetery in Waldron, Scott County, Arkansas. If you need anything else, just let me know.

RE: Friend Gibbs
Are you a descendant? I have found at least two other descendants of Friend Gibbs.

Your edit:
Middle Name:

I have seen this middle name in the Gibbs research papers I have, but no source is cited. Do you have a source for this information?

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

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

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.
