RE: Flora Anderson
That was just to add to the bio of her parents where you listed all of their children. I haven't found any memorial for her, just the death record i sent.

Requesting a photo...
John, Thank you so much for all that you do. I have just seen my grand mothers grave site for the first time. I wanted to know if you could help me since you were so kind as to upload my grandmothers site. Her son my uncle who passed before I was ever born should be buried next to her. His name is William John Thompson and passed the year before she did which would be in 1970 possibly. He was born I believe in 1948. Could you please please see if he is there. I am in Missouri and unable to do this myself.

Kind Regards, Jen Willis

Daniel Jackson and Mary Hurley
Then you and my husband are cousins! They are my husband's 3rd great grandparents, through their son Daniel who removed to Tippecanoe County, Indiana. Very compelling family!

RE: Simison
John, I know I have already taken full advantage of you and just can not ask anymore from you. I thank you so very very much. I do believe you do more for Find A Grave than anyone else in Ohio.

Thank you,

RE: Simison
Tried to email you by the email you gave me is not accepted. So, if you don't mind, I will give you the information here.

The Simison family I would like to have are the following:

Edwin 17436418
John 17132032
Laura 17435685
Osa 17436350
Robert 17435655
Walter 17436382
William 1731995

I found a lot of names that I knew but could not honestly say I could add anything of value to them. Ohio was ground zero for many of my family. All of them in a hurry to claim their land grants from the Rev War. lol

I do appreciate this John, I did get a lot of information from your memorials that I did not have and it would have taken me so much time to find even if I could.

I would love to go back to Greene and Montgomery Counties but if I will ever is doubtful. I live south of Phoenix, AZ and spend most of my time wandering around here.

Thank you so very much again

John, Will you do me one more favor, please if you give any of these families up, could I have them please. They all come from Samuel Knight and Hannah Cain. Me too. Anyway, I have never got to put up their history on them and it is rather good. The Knight family came over with William Penn in 1680. Samuel Knight m. Hannah Cain, daughter of Daniel Cain REV WAR and he turned around and married for the 2ed time to Samuel's sister Sarah. You have done a lot for me in the past with my other family, the Schnepp's. They all lived in the same area at one time.

Thank you for doing such a bang up job on the Simison's. I love your work.

Linda Morris grandaughter of Lora Edith Knight.

RE: Carroll or Carrill
I think it's a stone error and should have been Carroll. I see you have researched this person very thoroughly (via you family tree). Your work is impeccable. Thanks.

Pam Hunter
Misspelled my grandmother's name
Hello John,

My name is Pam Stokes Hunter. I am May Daniels Witham's granddaughter. My mom is her last surviving child, Judith Ann Daniels Stokes. She and wanted to inform you that my grandmother's name is listed incorrectly in your record here. The "V" did not stand for Vivian. It stood for Vada. I noticed in working on my records that it has come up a few times and I've not accepted it as a hint because it was incorrect. I wonder if you might be able to change it or tell me how to change it.

Thank you so much!

Bernice Copsey Confer
It's a distant relationship. Arthur Upton Confer's wife, Clara Miller, was the sister of my husband's grandmother, Effie Tobias. Arthur and George Albert Confer were brothers. George Albert's son was Earl, who was married to Bernice. And it goes on and on...

Griffy family
John, You don't remember me but, you have helped me in the past. Nothing like you have tonight however. I am a decendent of Leonard Schnepp, Daniel Cain & Solomon Mormon Knight. These three names are all tangled up together with marriages over and over down the lines over 250 years. Sarah Knight, mother of Hettie however has always been a real problem as she married her brothers father inlaw, Daniel Cain who was 30 years older than she. We have always known there were other children but could not find them. It did not help that those children were young with the loss of almost all the Knight family in Sugar Creek, 1846-7 with Colora By the way, Sarah's brother was Samuel who married Hannah Cain. They are mine too. I have no clue where you found this information but I do thank you so very much. If you ever feel like passing them on, please consider me. Oh, I did not tell you that Leonard Schnepp's granddaughter married into the Cains and that the Schnepp & Coy family, which 3 of their children married, also married into the Bingamans who are mine another way too. What a tangled web. lol
