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: Hazel Elliott Larimer
Hi John,
I think you're right. Just requires more research.
I appreciate the update.

I know you've done a lot of research on the Elliott line. So do you believe that Hazel married a Larimer, like the one that is causing my confusion?

Thank you.

RE: Hazel L Elliott and Larimer
Hi John,
You are absolutely right. Wrong Hazel. I have revised my family tree.
Do you know if and who Hazel Elliott married or when she died?

Thank you.

RE: Evelyn Polhemus
You are welcome again. When I get a good day now that I know the right cemeteries I will check for headstones.

RE: Clark Polhemus
John - Thank you for contacting me regarding the duplicate memorial for Clark Polhemus. I created it as a result of walking the cemetery and looking for markers without Find a Grave records for that cemetery. Now that the memorial you created lists that cemetery, I moved the picture to it and deleted the memorial I created.

Thanks for your detailed message - it made this update very easy.
