Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Ohio and have spent many years researching my ancestors. Surnames connected to my father's line are: Baker,Halterman,Myers, Shanks,Barnes,Petticord,Floyd,Cox,Robinson, Barnett,Glass,Evans and Huff from OH, PA, MD

Surnames connected to my mother's line are: Greene,Green,Watson,Sherrill,Carlton,Livingston, Marley,Ferguson,Wallace,White,Triplett,Laws, McKee,Allison,Durham,Bailey,Lowrance,Bray, Hodges,and Hamby from North Carolina. My third great grandmother in NC is believed to be a full blood Cherokee. Perhaps DNA will prove it.

I only enter and manage memorials that are of my family & ancestors. Please respect my request to manage Find A Grave memorials of my ancestors entered by someone with no family connection. I have met some very nice people who will transfer a cousin or ancestor that does not meet the FAG guide lines, and some real "JERKS" who are in no way connected but will not part with the management of a memorial that they made.

The Schupp's from Germany adopted my Baker grandmother and therefore I entered memorials for all the Schupp's connected to her adopted family.

Many NC families migrated to Coshocton County, Ohio starting in 1920 and continued through the 1930's. Most (if not all), are connected to my NC ancestors. I will make memorials for those who lived, had children, and died here. I have known many of these people since I was a child.

WHEN I ADD A FAMILY PICTURE TO THE MEMORIALS, DO NOT COPY THEM WITHOUT MY APPROVAL. IN NO WAY ARE THEY TO BE COPIED AND USED ON ANY INTERNET GENEALOGY SITE. I have found copies of my pictures on and GENI genealogy sites that were taken without my permission. Any member of Find A Grave that does not honor this restriction will be tracked down and reported.

I recently found some of my entire Find A Grave memorials copied and put on GENI and Rootsweb. The FAG memorials are managed only by me and when copied and added to other websites, I cannot change or delete them. This must be stopped.

I also follow the Federal Law at 17 U.S.C 107 about copying information and pictures and using them for other than personal use.

It is OK to copy pictures of grave stones. Thanks

Barbara Campbell
Mabel Durham
Greetings, I will be happy to add her maiden name. However I do require your source. I checked DAR and they list a Molly Hawkins as the spouse of John Durham, Burke county. I found a Mastin Durham which I believe is her son. He states in his pension application He was born in the County of
Hanover Virginia in the year 1755. In the year 1779 he removed to the County of Wilkes in the year State of North Carolina. He doesn't list his parents. The will of John Durham is witnessed by 2 Bailey's but other than that I can identify nothing that indicates Mabel's maiden name. Also if this is a direct ancestor I will be happy to transfer her and her husband.

Thanks for confirming that it was Edna. I figured that out last night.

I also noticed that you and Sandra Blankenship are cousins. I know Sandra. She doesn't live that far from me.

Thanks again for the McGee connection.

RE: McGee genealogy
Thanks for letting me know that. Which child of Roxie and Harvey do you come down from? If I calculate right, we are 4th cousins.

A cousin is a cousin!!!

Glad to meet a new McGee cousin.

RE: Made a Bio
That depends on what kind of information that is desired and if it will be public. What is the type of info that you would like? I'm just a bit cautious with personal information on the internet.

RE: Greene's
The Greene and Green had me confused when I started doing my ancestry. Find A Grave has helped me see how they were related and about the name change. Great Aunt Nora Green Prater left her pictures to her daughter, and the house burned down and we lost so many family pictures. I do enjoy the web site and reading about the family stories.

I want to thank you for the history of our families. When I visit the graveyard, Mt. Zion in Coshocton, I always wondered who the other Greens were and what relationship they had with my great grandfather George Washington Green and Mary Green. I love looking at the pictures that everyone had. I miss Aunt Medford, she gave us copies of picture we never had of family members. I don't always have time to do ancestry so I do enjoy when it I see others have gotten pictures that I don't have. I want to keep info for my grandchildren, about where we came from and why we lived in Ohio.

RE: Medford's pictures
Sherlock....I apologize for any inconvenience or trouble I have caused you. When I receive the picture many years ago from Aunt Medford I had no idea that it belonged to anyone else. William and Nancy Greene are my 3 times great grandparents. Again I apologize.

RE: Watson cousins
If you are Stan, then I'm sure we've met via email. It was Stan who convinced me to make a Bio for myself.

Don't forget to investigate the item I brought to your attention. I suspect it is a listing error, but Sherlock is the one who will have to prove that. :-)

Have a great day!

RE: Family pictures on FAG
Hi, Sherlock,
I remember you writing me about this problem (your work and photographs appearing elsewhere, with no permission and no credit.) I'm glad that F.A.G. finally got back to you; it's too bad that they took so d_ _ _ long that you could no longer give them the details they'd need to do anything about it. Thanks for the update.

If you're on Facebook, look me up.
