Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began researching the family history of both myself and my wife Suzanna in July of 2010. Little did I realize how much this new hobby would be come so important to my life. It has been a gratifying challenge as well as a spiritual mission. Genealogy has allowed me to make connections with family members whom I might have otherwise found reason to connect with. For this reason alone, I am thankful for this journey.

Over the past 5 years, I have moved from doing personal family research to focusing on regional cemetery & newspaper research. My most recent projects have been for cemeteries in Washington County, TN (Oak Hill & Monte Vista in Johnson City), obituaries in The Comet (Johnson City, TN), Old Lawrenceville Historic Cemetery in Lawrenceville, GA, Rensselaerville Cemetery (Rensselaerville, NY) & Onesquethaw Cemetery (New Scotland, NY).

I'm a firm believer in photographing headstones, as opposed to relying on second hand transcriptions. While including these surveys is quite valuable to our knowledge-base, it is important not to consider these sources as primary and infallible. It's best to consider all available sources when researching burials.

I believe his father's last name was Wallen and his mother's maiden name was Latham.

Thank you for all you do to aid others in their research.

Hi Rob,

Gertrude is my Great Great Grandmother and her birth date is from a family bible that was copied by her son who is my Great Grandfather.

sylvia whitfield edit
Memorial# 99082193 - You sent an edit that she was born in VA. Could you tell me where you got that info? I only found her on the 1880 census, which says she was born in GA, but her parents were born in VA. Thanks.

Belinda Mosher Radliff
Error in either her birth date or who her parents are. You have her born in 1823, with her mother, Sarah Ann Coonley Mosher born in 1830, and father Isaac Mosher born in 1826.
