Bio and Links
Bio Photo I maintain memorials only for persons to whom I am related and a very few close friends.


8th Great-grandparents: William Layton and Violet Blackman

3rd Great-grandparents: James Thomas McCord and wife Martha Burch

2nd Great-grandparents: George W Kerfoot and wife Dorcas M Trout

2nd Great-grandparents: William Elliott and wife Mary Davis

Will also work on maternal lines of: Trout, Dilts, Throckmorton, Stillwell and many others.

And paternal lines of: Wynn, Holzinger, Costello, Smith.

I have considerable information on many lines and am eager to share what I know since, after all, that is the purpose of compiling a genealogy. I will not, however, share my GED file.

RE: Kerfoot photos
You're welcome. Unfortunately, this cemetery is not very helpful in giving out burial locations, so I just take many pictures and hope that I fulfill a request or two. You got lucky!

RE: Clarence and Agnes Faith
Clarence Harold Faith's father was Newton Henry Faith, a brother to my grandfather Howard Hugh Faith (6 children born to William Jasper Faith and Mary Jane (Thurman) Faith of Knox County, Illinois). Some of the Thurman's were among the earliest settlers of Knox County, and a couple arrived in the Peoria area when it consisted of about 3 cabins.

There are several of the Newton and Verna kids on whom I'm still doing research, trying to locate their path through life.

Clarence's younger sister Mary Jane lived with my grandparents for a time after the death of her mother Verna. I last saw Mary Jane at a family reunion in Spokane, Washington in June 1993. Some of the others I saw when I was a small child, but those memories have long faded.

Thanks for the help. Sharon Faith Glenn

Clarence and Mary Faith
Thank you so much for connecting Clarence Harold Faith to his parents, siblings and daughter. He was my mother's first cousin. We only have one problem: Clarence and his wife Mary Agnes have a headstone in the Evergreen Memorial Park and Mausoleum in Riverside, California. Clarence is listed as: 'Clarence H. Faith, 1907-1958, Find-a-Grave Memorial #113648566' Mary Agnes (Anderson) Faith, his wife, is listed as: 'Mary A. Faith, 1910-1976, Find-a-Grave Memorial #113648578'

You have the most complete information for Clarence but have them both listed as "location of ashes unknown." Clarence--#103914327 and Mary Agnes--#103914411.

How can we combine all your good work with the listings in the correct cemetery?

William Elliott
This William Elliott b. circa 1805 Md (probably now Franklin County, Pa) was my GGGrandfather. His son William b. 1834 who married Elizabeth
Wido, my GGrandfather whose daughter Sarah Ellen was my Grandmother. Sarah married George Washington Grimm my Grandfather.

I have visited Franklin County on several occasions and with the help of Kittochtinny Historical Society, Chambersburg discovered the Daley cemetery burial site of the above. After wandering around for several hours I finally asked a neighbor for help and was directed to a piece of woods which held the cemetery which was overgrown with weeds and trees.
