Bio Photo Veterans, thank you for your service. Open my flag to see related veterans I found.

A FindAGrave Link: Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery a cemetery I have taken to see that photos are completed for each memorial, and, that genealogy is done to link them to their ancestors and descendant memorial. NOTE: The Following Link Is To My Ancestry Tree For The Cemetery And An Ancestry Membership, Or An Invitation, Is Needed To Access. Ask Me For An Invitation If Needed And One May Be Sent To Your Provided Email. Sleepy Hollow II Pleasant Grove Cem 1831
------------------------

Hello, Glad to meet you. I am on call for memorial photos. I live in Weddington, NC (Union County) This site has been great, as I seem to make new friends and meet many cousins that I may have not known otherwise. My hobbies include photography and genealogy, this site has my interest on both of these. Family ancestor lines keep expanding and I keep learning history. A brief detour about ancestors discovered.

They are family members. They are immigrants, settlers, innovators, leaders, farmers, shoemakers, plumbers, cattle ranchers, horse brokers, locomotive engineers, planners, household mothers and fathers, stone masons, iron workers, foundry owners, grocers, merchants, infants, tailors, moulders, ice merchants, engineers, builders, developers, realtors, Priests, ministers, deliverymen, cabinetmakers.

Unknowingly, I lived places ancestors had previously settled. A 3rd Great grandfather had emigrated from Bavaria, Germany to Rochester, N. Y., where I was born. Another 3rd Great grandfather emigrated from Saarland Germany to Steuben County, N.Y., near where I went to college. A 6th Great grandfather lived and died in Addison, Vermont, 35 miles line of sight from where our three children were born and raised in Brookfield, VT. The builder of that home was a veteran of the War of 1812. The home was built prior to prior to 1800, the timbers were first growth Spruce, Ash and Maple. Beams over 40-FT, boards wider than 42-IN. Its first owner had moved from Connecticut in 1820, leaving the County my maternal ancestors lived. My 10th Great grandfather settled Stamford prior to 1680. Even now, where I live in the Carolinas, I learn of a Grand Aunt having lived in Hendersonville, nearer our present home in the Carolinas.

The education continues with military heroics. Learning a 7th Great grandfather was KIA on board on Lake Erie during the French and Indian War in 1756, seeing many ancestors with service in the Revolutionary War. A 5th Great grand uncle, Joseph Turner, a Revolutionary War Veteran is buried in Fort Ann, NY at the Blossom Farm Cemetery. More, reviewing ancestors pension papers for the War of 1812. Reading service records of 2nd Great grandfathers who served in the duration of the Civil War. Hearing from a Great niece of his who has the sabre he used. The opportunity to hold a Great grandfather's military discharge orders from the Spanish American War. Opportunity to read commendations of a Father-In-Law's service in WW II during his 4 years and 4 months service from Northern Africa through Italy and finishes the campaign in Eastern Germany. Meeting a cousin whose Uncle served WW I and WWII as a Medical Doctor. Learning of the citations of ancestors' received during the Korean War. Not to ignore recent military heroes.

This is a journey. Listen to the stories they have.

Last Checked, only 40 of my 1,860 suggested "edits" sent (family lineage) have been declined. Thank You.

When someone says they are a Tenth generation descendant, you may ask them who their other 255 6th Great grandparents are. ; ). We have 128 4th Great grandparents, 512 6th Great grandparents and 8,192 10th Great grandparents. Last report I have located memorials for 16 of my 10th Great grandparents.

RE: Fletcher Family
I also am not related to the Fletchers. I was doing some research for the Williston Cemetery at the Library in Columbia and while I am there I usually look up some stuff for other memorials that are lacking family connections. This is where I got the info (obituary) that I passed on to Susan Williams. I think the obit was from the The State newspaper microfilm files.

Sure thing! I betting he was related, but that's a tough one to verify. If I locate any additional information, I'll let you know.

Hello, Greg! I am not related to the Dickersons I worked on previously either, but I played around with Joseph's name and came up empty handed. I guess unless some documents surface, he could remain a mystery. Wish I could be of more help.
Sincerely,
Fran

RE: Memorial# 131628035
You are welcome. This week was my annual trek to Steuben and Livingston Counties . It was quite productive. Yes Stephen Denzer the elder was the grandfather of John Daniel Denzer. Also Stephen had a daughter Anna who married Nick Didas of Perkinsville. My 2x great grandfather was Stephen Denzer the younger and elder Stephens nephew. I have your email so I will send you the photos themselves. I also have some more information about Wayland folk and Isle of the Pines in Cuba and the Weyands.

Greg you sent me an e-mail several months ago asking if I could add something to the above Find A Grave site for Asher Williams Jr. however I did not make his page and there is no way I can add info. I've tried several times to have the owner of the site transfer both him a his wife to me since they are my direct relatives and he has refused. His site has some MIS-information claiming a granddaughter as their daughter. Good luck on your search. regards Grace

RE: Un Marked gravestones
Greg,

Nice to hear from you. Good to know all is well.

Those unmarked markers are probably marked if the sun hits them just right, unless they are just a broken nub. I guess I would enter as you mention and then describe where they are located: Between John Doe and Jane Doe. Kind of like a gravestone with just Mother or Father etc.

RE: Hello
Greg,

I'm thinning out the memorials I've created and one of the methods is by transferring to other F/A/G members who've left flowers/notes on memorials declaring their connection to the deceased.

You may recall that I had the photo of your grandmother because my grandmother was also in the picture, having also attended Geneseo Normal School. You're grandmother's name appears on the back of the photo.

I'm not related to nor know any of the family names you mentioned in your two recent notes. Most of the memorials I've created were sourced from obituaries that were stumbled upon while researching my own family in western NY.

Sorry I have nothing more illuminating to offer.

Mike
