Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have spent many years researching my ancestors. Surnames connected to my father's line: Halterman,Myers,Shanks,Barnes,Baker,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 members who are in no way connected but will not part with the management of a memorial that they made. If you do not want to transfer a memorial when asked, do not send me mail about the FAG guidelines. I have read them and I think the relationship does not go far enough. If it is a cousin that you can add information about it will be helpful to anyone working on genealogy. If you know nothing about the person please transfer as requested.

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.

Do you know that Find A Grave genealogy and pictures are now part of If you did not want your information spread around everywhere it is too late. This included copyrighted family pictures. You have to pay for information including what was yours.

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

RE: Move photo for Samuel Charles Wyler
Thanks for doing that. I see that there were 3 children of Mary Barbara Haas Wyler & Charles Samuel Wyler buried in the same cemetery, so I sent you requests to direct the relationship links to the correct memorials. Then you can delete the duplicate memorial for Mary B. Haas Wyler (# 150816876) if you would please. Thanks Sherlock.

Move photo for Samuel Charles Wyler
Hi Sherlock, I mistakenly made a duplicate memorial for Samuel Wyler and you posted a headstone photo on the one # 142831822. Could you please repost the photo to Find A Grave Memorial# 142856603 so that I can delete the other one?
Thank you so much! --Cathy

RE: Memorial for Fern Basssett Green
Hi Sherlock, thank you for putting the info on Fern's grave, but could you please make a correction. Fern is the daughter of Sherman and Ida Cutshall Bassett, not Greene.

Thank you so much

RE: Memorial for Fern Basssett Green
Thank you for the information on Fern. I was trying to help the Bassett relatives find each other easier. Fern did die 40 years ago and as I find her children I will link them to her the proper way. Appreciate your time. Thanks again. Regina Deters

RE: I was wrong
You wrote (in April 2015,) "Her profile still has negative remarks about you, and the contact email address is still there. I must have looked at the wrong person. You know who I am talking about."

Yes, I know that person. The nasty remarks about me are still on her page, and now she has the nerve to ask me (again) for the transfer of an uncle--as if I'd be likely to do her any favors.

I hope you're happy and healthy.

I did have a bio at one time..........too many people with lots of questions. I don't mind helping......but a little over whelming.

There were quite a bit on there I took off that most likely came from the hints but they were all over my Howden side Hinshaw and Church side still not sure how your related figured must had been Church but i just took any off any with names on your list for now. So if it was me causing you problems some how hope its fixed

I had 1 Barnett i was in charge of that married one of Claude Churches gals I removed since it was a marriage other than that i went through your list at least on Geni and I'm following profiles but not owner of them however someone recently asked me to collaborate with them named Lefebvre.
amazing thing is how many of those last names are here where i live my teacher was a Durham Hamby sounds really familiar assuming probably from old church family reunions my dads family in the census were neighbors of Ferguson a lot so who knows. anyways i took the Barnett guy off Claude was my Great Grandfathers brother been a long time but we use to have Church family reunions i think in Toppenish Wa after Lester died think we stopped having them but would still be nice for future generations to know who relatives were i have green or greenes from 1400 1500 that im following not owner of

RE: Shanks
my moms ex married i believe a brown her daughter married a Shanks so that is pretty distant and by my sisters sisters marriage not really to me none of my sisters have both the same parents as me but still my sisters. however do think i have come across some your names usually further in the tree
i think i had some triplets way back somewhere not finding them now but that would had been from one my great aunts families i think they did a lot of work looking stuff up and wanted me to carry on the tree and share it with others family members. it would cost a whole lot to print out documents for every member so internet makes it easier so i have got info from my great Aunts and uncle and stuff that they have researched before me and I try to research myself which is limited online even when i go to the genealogy place in town and they try to help me they bring up my pages
