Bio and Links
I am an active contributor/member on Find A Grave. I find myself working here on this site with some project nearly every evening. At this time I am not a transcriber, perhaps later, but not now.

I salute each and every one here who spends countless hours in transcribing or in photographing stones and then coming home uploading pics and creating these wonderful memorials on line. You have my utmost respect for all the hard work you do!

I primarily work on my own family lines. I have been a family history researcher since 1976. It's been a great hobby taking me places, meeting and talking to new friends and family I had not previously known before.

My main goal on this site is to connect our families together, the children to parents, the spouses to one another and to be able to step over to see the siblings' memorials side-by-side, a family unit connected together as a whole. Those are the best kinds of memorials.

It is NOT my goal to collect family members' memorials, but if a contributor who has transcribed a memorial wishes to transfer a family member, whether collateral line or in-law to my direct line, that's fine. I will add any information that's accurate, appropriate and that will respectfully add to, enhance and bring to life the memory of individual who's passed on.

I have no objection in considering transfers of memorials upon request. First priority being given to direct line individuals as per Find A Grave policy, or I will also consider if you have a closer family connection than I do, or if you had a special bond with the person who is memorialized. To contact me, please use the edit tab and click the category link, "Suggest any other correction or addition" for such requests.

My research interests here include the following families: Settles, Davis, Paxton, Taylor, Smith, Rowley, Bryant, Thatcher, Grimes, Richards and Hefling to name a few.

Thanks for stopping by to read my profile. Good luck to you in your research, transcription project or remembrance of the special individuals you find. Enjoy your time on this site!

quilt question
Yes, I do quilt and have for many years. Long before I got into genealogy.

RE: Thatcher and Hammond Family updates
Please check the memorial sites and make sure I got the updates. I don't honestly remember doing any Thatcher and Hammond.
If you would like transfers please let me know I will be happy to transfer them to you

As far as listing the obit with the cause of death.... I would personally list it in the bio section because obits have a ton of info in them and are very helpful in the search.
Best wishes and good luck with your research!

Edna CHARLOTTE Smith Furnas
So, when we got back from Denver, I saw all the changes, and went to the cemetery register to put the correct lot on Fred & Edna's Memorials, and lo and behold! According to the register, her middle name is Charlotte. I changed this, too. Thank you for all the accolades. I do so love this stuff, and it doesn't have to be MY stuff!
You have fun and good luck in all your researching, too!

John William Smith
Yes, I put the obituary up on Mary Elizabeth's Memorial, and probably her son's, too. I can go looking for John's obituary, but it's going to be a couple of weeks. Summer is upon us, and weeds are growing just like that...weeds. And my garden is huge.

I'll do what I can.

Who has an Utterback in her family Tree.

John William Smith
I'm sorry to say I am no relation to John William Smith. If you wish I can transfer his Memorial to you. I love it when Family finds Family. I have no problem with that! Rob Minteer, creator of Mr. Smith's Memorial, has over 850,000 Memorials he manages, so he just transferred UHC to me 'cause I was pestering him with so many changes. (I didn't ask. Totally freaked me out when he did so.) I don't need my name in lights. Except for my beloved family.

Anyway, I can/will transfer, if you wish.

RE: Jeremiah
Glad you figured that out, I sure didn't -- now you can remove the F from his middle name.

RE: 148239682
It looks really nice, you did a good job. As far as the middle initial F goes....I had volunteered to add names to Find A Grave and the Saint Clairsville Union Cemetery listing that I worked with stated: Bryant, Jeremiah F. 1833-1902
wife Rebecca M. 1842-1930

RE: Willam Mitten & Eliza Moore
Thanks so much for all the info.

I do know that William H H had an older sister Ann Elizabeth. 1840 census listed as Mitten one male under 5, and 30-40 and 1 female 5-10 and 20-30. On the 1850 census she is listed as Elizabeth age 18 and he is age 13. They are listed as Mutton. I also have this: "Guardian Bonds for Year 1849 state: 2 Jun 1849 - William Mitton Gdn of Ann E. Mitton & William H. Mitton, minor heirs of ELIZA MITTON, Dec'd, formerly Eliza MOORE" So we know that the sister, Ann/Elizabeth was with them in 1840 and 1850 in Indiana and not listed on the 1860 census. She is not listed in father's will.

hope the person you pm'd writes you back.

RE: Jeremiah Bryant
If you write to the library will you ask them if they have anything on William and Eliza (Moore) Mitten/Mitton. He shows on the 1830 census in Barnesville. He married Eliza Dec. 9, 1830. I have seen it as Miller but I think they forgot to cross the t's. They had two children William H H and Ann Elizabeth Mitten.

William (my gg grandfather) married my gg grandmother Rachael T. Shaw 24 Jul 1839 in Indiana, so Eliza had to have died before then.

I think that Eliza (maybe could have been Elizabeth) Moore Mitten (Mitton) is buried in the Barnesville area or at least in Belmont county but have never been able to find anything on that or even on her.

Or if you would rather I write them would you give me the address.
