Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been hooked on this genealogy habit since I retired in late 1999.

Becoming a contributor to FAG has reinvigorated me as I work to get each individual I research documented for the benefit of future generations. I have found the contributors here to be a great bunch of people.

The FAG editors have graciously transferred over six thousand memorials to my account from that of valued deceased contributor Superkentman. I will be updating these memorials with additional information gathered in my research and post info received from others. I'll also gladly transfer any of these memorials for which I have no additional information or direct interest.

So far I have been able to cross reference over 25,000 individuals in my tree file to their memorials on Find A Grave!

See my tree file on RootsWeb shown below.

RE: Memorial 134692178
I looked back to see if I have posted any information with the picture - this is what we noted when we posted the picture:

No personal headstone for him was located. Perhaps he was buried with his parents. His father is in plot #1, his mother #2 and the tree sits squarely in #3.

Hope that helps.

Would it be alright if I use your Head Stone pictures for my Ancestral Quest and Ancestry Files?

missing info
Hello Jon,
I went back and looked at the information listed for Fernando Maxson and noticed that you did not have a place or date of birth for his wife, Catherine Almira Clark. She was born in Sidney, NY on June 13, 1831 and married Fernadndo in Knoxville, PA, Aug. 8, 1861

I always wondered why Fernando had a Spanish first name and assumed that one of his parents had Spanish heritage, but the information on your site proved me wrong. Thanks again for your research.

descendant of William Maxson
Hi Jon,
I'd like to thank you for the information you provided about my great-great-grandfather(Fernando Stephen Maxson) and his ancestors. When my father, William Banks Maxson II died, I inherited a book of family genealogy (History and Genealogy of Samuel Clark, Sr.) but it had no mention of Fernando Maxson's parents. Thanks to your site, I was able to trace his roots quite a bit further. According to this book, Fernando was born in Knoxvile, PA and is father to William Banks Maxson I (my great-Grandfather) who was an editor for the Cleveland Plain Dealer. His wife is listed in this book as Gertrude Perdue (not Pardue). My brother, who lives in New Mexico, has inherited the family title and is Williams Banks Maxson III. I have always wanted to visit the family plot at Lakeview Cemetery, and now I feel equipped with the right information to do so. Thanks again, Cindy (nee Maxson) Mehr.

Charles Freemont Clarke
Hi Jon,

I am trying to add some information to a site you support. Charles Fremont Clarke had another living daughter who is not listed. If you read the obit it says that he left behind four small children. Four are listed, but one of them listed was Lester who was dead at the time of his father's death. The fourth living daughter was Maria "Marie" Gertrude Clarke born in 1901–on 2 SEPTEMBER 1901 • Berlin, Green Lake, Wisconsin, United States. Her death is Unknown.She was my great-aunt and my Aunt who is in her late 80's knew her and would love to know the rest of the story. Maybe if we get this up someone will add the rest.
We also know she Married 24 September 1919 • Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan, United States to
Delos Vivan Scott (1897–1932) and then divorced without children. Her Residence in 1930 • St Louis, St Louis (Independent City), Missouri, USA where she at some point married a Mr. Wortman by 1932 as she was listed by that name in her Aunt Amanda Eveline Clarke (Maxson's) obit. In the 1940 census she was listed as a widow living St Louis, St Louis City, Missouri, USA. That is the nd of th trail that we have and anything you can add to the site would help. We have pictures of the three girls and their brothers as young children and Marie was raised by Her Uncle and Aunt {the Maxson's} until she was 18. Thanks, Sue Thompson

RE: Riverside Cemetery
YAY for you, Jon...both for reading to granddaughter and for researching! I was raised across the Big Lake in Muskegon and have done lots of research on my Swedes in Door County...still hope to get up there some time to meet up with a 3rd cousin who accompanied me along the winding trail. God help and bless all those who do such!
