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.

Find A Grave Memorial# 70906798
Thank you for your information on your dates of interest. I personally have no connection to Lydia Jane and the information I posted came from the Stafford cemetery records. I have nothing else to go on and I don't plan on researching her. I would gladly turn management over to any relative that requests.
Thanks again

Jerome Locke memorial
He is not linked through any of my memorial entries. I forwarded this request to the owner of his memorial.

Hello ~ The memorial for Wilbur is not mine but I did request that they link him to his mother's memorial.

Do you have any idea what happened to the father?

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!

Anne Reed White Chapin
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.
