Here below a descendant tree of this family Lington, well a part of it:

His father was: Cornelis Johannes Lington was born on Friday 18 May 1866 in Utrecht.
Cornelis died on Tuesday 30 October 1917 in Utrecht, aged 51.
His mother;
Geertruida Margrieta van den Dorpe Geertruida was born on Thursday 9 December 1869 in Utrecht.
Geertruida died on Saturday 18 June 1927 in Utrecht, aged 57.

Thomas Mattheus Lington returned once to the Netherlands and that was in August 1953 together with his wife, they return to the States on August, 20 1953, source Ellis Island.

Later I have perhaps more but I let you know, if you like of course.

Frank Barrows Markle
Hey Rebecca, I have been doing some extensive research on Frank Markle and his wife, Carrie (McDonald) Markle. I have just sent you some more edits. Are you related? Do you have any (?s). Just let me know. I couldn't find Samuel McCullough Markle (Frank's father) but did find his mother Lucy Brown (Gere) Markle. She was Samuel's second wife. He was first married to her older sister Mary Russell Gere, also found her. Also found Willard Gere Markle, Frank's son. Would love to hear from you--thanks for all you're doing. Lily

I thank you for your inclusion of this individual she was my cousin and I had no information concerning her burial and limited knowledge of her passing. You have given me some new insight in part of my family that had drifted apart.

Paul Gerhardt Benson
Hi Rebecca,

I'm a direct descendant of baby Paul Gerhardt Benson's brother, W. Burdette, and I was just wondering where you got the brief (but intriguing) information you posted in Paul's memorial (#119216892). I'm trying to learn more about him, and about what became of that cemetery and wondered if you might be able to point me in the direction of some good resources.

(I'm seeing the note currently at the top of your bio, too, and am floored. Respond when you can, but I will not be expecting anything soon--there are definitely more pressing matters at hand.)

Best wishes and kind regards,

Hi -

Not kin to that branch. My Ewings came from Louisiana where they had settled around 1830.
My grandfather, William Ewing, came to Texas in 1903 where he died in Houston in 1948. I was also born there.

Dear Rebecca,

How fun to stumble across this site and to find detailed information about my ancestors!

Find A Grave Memorial# 80045619

I found my great grandmother and just want to let you know that her daugheter Frances Coutts-Smith married Thomas Seeberg (a Norwegian). H name is misspelled on this site.

Both Frances Seeberg and Thomas seeberg are buried at the graveyard Ullern Kirke here in Oslo, Norway. Their twin daughters, Brita Irene Yri (nee Seeberg) and Karin Christine StrÝm-Gundersen (nee Seeberg), born August 8, 1944 in Vancouver Canada and both buried at Ullern here in Oslo too.

Kind regards

Re: Robert Keahey # 81881811
You sent his parents names to be added in Bio. I accepted this note because I found a source in the form of his AZ death certificate & his parents names on there.

Thanks, Diane

Re: Henry Keahey # 80659355
You sent a short Bio for Henry Keahey listing his marriage & children. I ALWAYS appreciate more info for these memorials. However, I noticed on your own Bio you don't want your name listed as a source. I don't add add'l info to people that I'm not related to & don't know unless I can add where I got the info. If you give me some sources to list, I will be happy to add that. If someone else were to contact me with questions, where did you get this info, etc, I would be clueless without a reference to you.

Please don't be offended that I don't add this info without some sort of source. It's just my personal preference. If you want to manage this memorial and add the info, I would be happy to transfer to you. But please don't transfer it back once you've added the info.

Thanks, Diane

Flora Cameron nee Cameron
Hi Rebecca,

I have noticed that you have put Flora Cameron as a spouse of Duncan Cameron who is buried in the Bannockburn Cemetery.
I am just wondering of the source of this information apart from the newspaper article on her death? I know there is a marriage on vic bdm for them both but I'm wondering if you have the right Duncan Cameron?
I have no information for him, no death date, birth date, his headstone is unreadable but I will have a look at it again tomorrow.

Dr. Zenas Sanford Loftis # 124750465
Thanks so much for creating his memorial! I have left edits for you to link his parents, and I wanted to let you know my connection and how I know who his parents were. He was my great-grandmother's first cousin, and the family story is that they were in love. Her parents, having left Jackson County because there was so much intermarriage there, disapproved of the relationship, so they did not marry. Instead, he went to China as a missionary, and she married a widower with several children and went on to have several of her own (including my grandfather).

Eleanor Willis
Hi Rebecca

Very interested in your Find A Grave Memorial 112209368 (Eleanor Willis). It doesnít seem to fit with your other posts so I was wondering what your interest was / is.
I have tried unsuccessfully to try and find the graves of three more victims of that raid, a Samuel Reuben and the sisters Elsie and Elizabeth Leggatt (or Leggett). Iíve contacted all cemeteries in the area of Stoke Newington and Whitechapel in my attempt and wondered, if that raid was of interest to you, if you ever had more luck?

Hi Rebecca,
I don't think I am allowed to create a memorial as I didn't actually take the photo, it came from the billion graves website.

Hi rebecca

I just made an edit for Charles but by accident I put him born in the state of Queensland. It was actually Victoria (Warrnambool to be exact - finding the counties on this website is always confusing).

Sorry about the error.

Hi Rebecca and thank you for creating this memorial 116991540, which seems to be my cousin's great-grandfather. Can you please email me any information you have such as where the source of the information for this memorial is. I can't tell you how amazed I was to find this when I just discovered his name this afternoon -- her grandfather was born in Taiwan so I'm assuming this is her great-grandfather but no idea any background -- and not sure whether she has any either. Any help (feel free to email) would be greatly appreciated!! Judi
