Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working of my family history for the last 15 years or so. Find a grave has been very useful in locating some of my hard to find family. And finding Family is always a Treasure found.

If you find a mistake or duplicate that I have made, then please let me know so I can take care of it. If you have ANY additional info, I am more than happy to add to the memorials that I have created. The more the information the better.

I do not "alter" any Marker that I photograph, if the picture does not come out "readable" then I will only lightly wipe with a soft cloth or try to re-photo at different times of the day to get better lighting. Or I will try to wet the marker and photograph it at different stages of drying.
If you would like a better photo please request and I will see what I can do.
If you have taken a better photo than I have then please let me know so that if I agree, I can remove mine so as the Memorial doesn't become cluttered.

If you are interested, just ask! I am not huge fan of the policies, I see them as "guildlines" only, all that is important to me is that you are better able to add to the memorial than I am. You don't have to be directly related, just willing and able to make the page better. I'm not in it for the numbers, I just want people to be able to find their friends or ancestors.

Any pictures that I have added to findagrave of your family members are freely provided for you and you may copy, alter and use them as you deem appropriate. No credit is required, I am happy to share.

**I do not and will not use chalk/shaving cream and will not do "rubbing". These are damaging techniques and I do not want a photo request fulfilled of mine, using the these techniques. I would rather have a photo that I can not read then have the stone ruined for future generations.
Thank you in advance for your consideration of my wishes.

Please feel free to use the edit tab with any questions, additions, connections, transfers, duplicates, and or corrections.

And Remember You Can Not Own Your Ancestors...

RE: Compton
I am glad to have the answers to my Great Aunt Lottie's son''s family. There is a cousin that I'm trying to contact in California that would have information on the Comptons as her dad was Aunt Lottie's brother. Her name is Ann Huss and she lives in San Diego, Ca.
As for Wayne's mother side, she was German and I have her ancestors back to Pennsylvania. She was the youngest of her mother's children, and my grandma' sister. Her mother died when Lottie was young, I think maybe of TB. I have not heard how Lottie met James Compton, or where they married. I think maybe Oklahoma, but not sure. I will be going to Oklahoma soon to visit my sisters and will visit my 90 year old Uncle that lived in California when he was younger and spent a lot of time with Lottie and Jim Compton. My uncle can't
hear on the phone so I have to talk to him in person.
Do you know why or have you ever heard why Wayne's grandparents never knew what happened to him? That's a mystery to me! Seems like the awful disease of TB must have played a great role in this.
Howard was a artist and liked to paint. My uncle has one of his pictures hanging in his house.

Best Regards, Sherry Jones

Been going over my genealogy today of Aunt Lottie Grube Comptom. My uncle told me that Howard had a son, but the mother took the son and left when young and my great aunt Lottie never knew what happened to him.

Now, that's one side of the story. I find that in the 1940 census that Merna Compton was a patient in the County Tuberculosis Sanatarium and her son was living with a couple whom I don't know in 1940 census. Of course, Aunt Lottie (Wayne's grandmother) was taking care of her daughter, Grace, who died of TB in 1942. I would think that the grandparents would have tried to find Wayne, as he would have been their only heir. James Compton was successful in his field of work. I believe they gave my uncle their house before they died. I had tried several times to find who the son was. So thankful you emailed me. One brick wall torn down. I guess Merna was successful in her fight with TB.

I have a picture of Howard standing by his car when he was grown that I can get to you. Very nice looking!
Please let me know what you know abt this family.

RE: Compton Family
Are you talking abt Howard Randolph Compton that died of TB? His father being James Pearl Compton that died in El Cajon, Ca on Nov. 29, 1974? My uncle has a picture Howard painted. Is Wayne Howard's son? I am a great niece, but my 90 year old uncle would know abt them as he was in California in the earlier years of their lives. James's wife is my grandmother's sister. I am very interested in knowing abt what you know about your fiancÚ ancestors. Howard may have married, but my uncle said Howard's sister took care of him while he was sick before he died. His sister was Grace Pearl Grube and died later on of TB, too is what I was told. I have pictures of Howard. Let me know if this is his family and i'll see what else I have. Always good to find family.
Kind Regards,
Sherry Jones

John Bellew
Why don't you ask Barbara McKinney to transfer management to you for John Bellew since you are a direct descendant of John Bellew.(4th great grandfather)
I gave her the biographical information on him and then put in William Nelson Bellew who was a son of John Bellew and Cincinnati Bellew. She wouldn't transfer to me because I am not in direct lineage but she should with you. I am very distant line of William Nelson Bellew's wife Mary Allen Munson whose father William Munson Jr. was brother of my 3rd great grandfather.
