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 will 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 24,000 individuals in my tree file to their memorials on Find A Grave.

See my tree file on RootsWeb shown below.

Interesting fact on the Metta Wilson family. Her father and her uncle were both married to a woman by the name of Mandane Lowther, but not the same Mandane Lowther.

Elizabeth Bennett #17479305
I have an Elizabeth Bennett b.23 Aug 1855, Pittsfield, MA d. bef 1897, who was married to David Lester Evans in Stockbridge, MA in 1880. He is probably buried in Pittsfield Cemetery, Pittsfield, MA, but I cannot confirm that. Lizzie was his first wife, followed by Clara Bagg and Martha Smith. Both his parents are buried in Pittsfield Cem. and may be found on Find A Grave. Lizzie's parents were Charles A. and Angeline M. Bennett; haven't found their graves either. Let me know if you think this is the correct Elizabeth Bennett, and I'll send you the edits for this memorial.

Hi Jon,
First let me say you must be very trustworthy and respected by Find A Grave for them to transfer 6000 memorials to you. What a honor that is. You must do an excellence job on making your memorials.

I was wondering if I may please use your photos to add to my family tree. This is the first one I had looked at so there might be more.

Thank you for taking on the project so all of the rest of us and benefit from your time and effort that it takes you to do this.

Thanks for accepting the edits. I must have been having a brain cramp when I thought the grave photo said "Thobias"

Hello Jon and thanks for all you do! You added an obituary from The Sabbath Recorder: vol. 15 no 29 page 115 for Mrs. Mercy Lovinice Emerson. I don't know if the obit or you provided the info on Mercy's parents. Mercy had an older half sister named Olive Burdick, who died in Cattaraugus County NY in 1899. We have lots of information but nothing that states her parents, Uriah and Olive Sutliff Burdick or a marriage record to Silas C. Phelps. Did the Sabbath Recorder post marriages? and where could I access copies? Thanks so much. Martha Reinhart
