Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live quite a distance from where my ancestors lived, so I am grateful for the assistance of folks on this website for information that I can't get to!

My Boughter, Kreider and Landis families lived in the Lebanon, Pennsylvania area. The Bellards were from Trumbull and Mahoning counties in Ohio. The Moyers and Mooks lived in the Sandusky/Bellevue area in Ohio.

On my mother's side, the Meils came to the Cleveland area from Westray, Orkney Islands. The Thorntons and Abels go back to revolutionary war times in New Hampshire and Connecticut respectively and came west to Painesville, Ohio. The Rickett family was from Allen County, Indiana.

I currently live in Rockingham county, North Carolina. I am happy to go into the woods to find "lost" cemeteries here.

Some of the marker photos I took with my old camera are not as clear as they could be. If you would like me to retake any with my new improved camera, let me know.

James McCollum
Jan,

The photo you took of James McCollum's (Memorial # 70362146)is proof that the McCollum cemetery exists THANKS. His parents were David McCollum and Massie Lanier David owned more than 1000 acres of land, from the Dan River, Jacobs Creek to a point near Giffing and Smothers Mill. David is buried on this property in another McCollum Family Grave yard not far from the cemetery you photographed.

Any chance you can find it? If you are to busy I understand. One set of directions places it on the south end of New Bethel Church Road (#2361) near the Thomas McCollum House. David's son "Robin" P McCollum is the only son son to remain on the farm, and he is buried there with his wife Nancy Williams, she is daughter of William Wheelwright Williams. David's son Thomas who was born in 1792 and died young and single is also buried in this cemtery next to his mother and there is a field stone with Thomas carved in it for him. David is my 4th Great Grandfather. A local historian I met when I was in Wentworth several yaers ago said that the property is still owned by a McCollum but that he is getting quite old and I fear that he may have passed by now. Hope this will give you enough information to find the cemetery.

Jan, I don't mind transferring at all. I am just sick and tired of these people who request transfers when they refuse to transfer unless it is within Find A Grave guidelines. I transfer if all they are were friends. Barb

Jan, I offered to quickly. I should have ask if you transfer freely as well, since that is what I do. I see nothing in your bio to indicate what your choices are. Please let me know. Barb

RE: Tod Lewis
Sorry about the error. The date of 10 Dec 1929 is the date of burial according to cemetery records.

RE: Sallie Bateman Compton
I think he "ran off". I see someone with a whole new life with the name Andrew Jackson Bateman in Mississippi!

Sallie's maiden name is Minter and her father is Silas Minter, mother Letitia Eggleston, if you want to look for a link.

Madison Colored cemetery
Would you please see if you can locate what is referred to in some death certificates as the Colored Cemetery in Madison, Rockingham county? There are Scales, Galloways and, I assume, other African Americans buried there. Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

RE: Hattie E. Dixon
The next time I make it up that way I would be more than happy to re photograph. If you would like to do a request and if someone else makes it there sooner and can fulfill it. Oak not sure when I will be up that way again

Photo request for Eliza Jane Ballard
The good Lord willing, my husband and I will be visiting the Four Mile Run cemetery in Austintown this coming Friday. I have Hills and Joneses buried there. I hate to "claim" your photo request, as I might not find it, or my husband might rush me away too fast for me to look for her grave. But if all goes well, I'll get you a picture.
