There is allot of work to be done. |
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.
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. Sleepy Hollow II Pleasant Grove Cem 1831
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.

Thank you for your message. I went ahead and connected the links for Bradley and his parents buried in Pleasant Grove Cemetery. (#64294704 & #64294169). Thank you for your work in this area.
|Suzzette G Yandle||RE: William Alison Peninger|
I found it and accepted all the information from you. I know how to do that with the edit on my home page. Wonder where my mind was? Thanks for your time and help. Hope you don't get too much snow! Suzzette
|Suzzette G Yandle||RE: William Alison Peninger|
I found the edit on the memorial. I guess I don't have the memorial numbers for William's parents: John Peningar and Mary Ann "Erline". Do you have the parent's memorial numbers?
|Suzzette G Yandle||William Alison Peninger|
Thank you for the added information on William. I have added this information to his memorial with credit to you. I did not find his parent's Find A Grave memorial numbers. Are you going to link William to his parent's or will you send me the link?
Your bio was fasinating to read. The connections you have made with your ancestors and your own life is amazing and wonderful, especially considering all the places you have lived. You are so steeped in history, genealogy must be an awesome "calling" for you. I can just "see" you doing the genealogy dance when you make a family connection. Thank you for the work you are doing to help others on Find A Grave. It's a wonderful thing - "sharing". Suzzette
Thank you for taking the photos of two Osborne grave markers. I appreciate this very much.

Was simply trying to include both of her married names in her surname to make it easier to see her in Findagrave searches.
(I'm working on the Boyd family. My husband is descended from the father of the husband of Dorcas, though I hadn't been aware of her name. When I have time to catch up, I'll see if I can add in links to descendants who ended up in Ohio in Clarksfield or Wakeman, Huron County, where 2 sisters of Francis moved.)
Great community is Findagrave, eh?
|FRH||RE: Holy Sepulchre Numbering|
If I remember correctly, Tier means row so I would add it.some Vets are buried in Vets only sections and that might be why he is seperated from his wife. I wish I could be more help but It's been a few years since I've been there.
