Carmen Benner Chilson
Benner Family
Hello! I just got off the phone with Lois Hunsiker, she encouraged me to reach out to you for information on the Benner family.
In the 1840 census I find the first information on my 3rd great grandmother, Elizabeth Benner, my third great uncles, Elias, David, and Christopher Benner, and my 2nd great grandfather, Joseph Benner.
Elizabeth claims she was born in MD and so does Elias and David, Christopher and Joseph were born in Virginia. I have no knowledge of what Elizabeth's maiden name was, and no idea who her husband was. Her husband must of died before 1840, or they separated, as I have nothing on him. If you have any knowledge of Elizabeth especially, I would appreciate it.
Relatives of mine that lived in and around Knox County are Ammons, Baker, Ballenger, Bowls, Bunnell, Childers, Clatt, Clouser, Gardner, Hainline, Hoehle (pronounced Hay-Lee), Hudson, Lewis, McMillen, Olson, Schempp, Sellers, Sparks, Sullivan, Vandolah, and of course Benner! I would love to have copies of anything that you can offer on my family. I live in Tampa, Florida, so I am not able to search for myself.

He was married in 1848-9 to Martha E. Maddux, she died in 1866, so would have been his wife during the Civil war years. He later married Susan Sinclair.

I also would like to thank you for all of the information you have provided for my family. Sincerely Sandra E. Butler

We are the son and the daughter-in-law of Kenneth Richard O'Neal. Would you be willing to transfer care of this record to us? We know our Dad's body was donated to science; however, there is a memorial stone in the Dickerson Run Union Cemetery in Dickerson Run, Fayette County, PA which would be the accurate Find-A-Grave location.

This is our contributor number: #47945727

Thank You,

Kenneth Michael O'Neal and Beth Maria O'Neal

George Shannon and Massie Cemetery
Thanks for the info. Now that I look more closely I see that the "original" maintained by Find A Grave is for a marker only and is not in that cemetery.

I agree with you that the Ancestry ownership has certainly diverged from what Find A Grave was all about for so many years. In fact, I'm not sure they have a real plan for what Find A Grave should be. Their volunteers seem to be all about speed rather than accuracy. Thankfully those of us more concerned with accuracy can keep plugging away to get their messes straightened out, unlike the census records on Ancestry, which only seem to get worse over time. (But they love to brag about how quickly they got the 1940 census records indexed--they had obviously never heard the saying "haste makes waste.")

Good afternoon. I just wanted to let you know that I have posted an additional picture of Louis' headstone. I now have it completely cleaned, re-set and repaired.

My grandmother was Alta Fay Sharpe Benner, her father was John Milton Sharpe, and his father was John Harvey Sharpe... I would like to request for photos of all of the Sharpe's and the John Hinkson family. I know you have one of John Hinkson, but I would like one that shows it more clearly if You could please. Also I have numerous request for photos for the LaBelle Cemetery and Lewistown Cemetery, could you help with them? My Grandma Gertrude Willey is buried in Lewistown, she was my mother's mother. Thank you so very much! Carmen Benner Chilson

RE: Washington Lakin
There is quite a history between the Lakin and Easterday families. I descend from Abraham Lakin and Martha Lee. I'm only about 30 minutes from Jefferson and Frederick, Maryland, so if there is ever anything I can do in this area, please let me know!

Sorry. I always use the edit button unless it's something I need to tell you or that needs to be put into the bio section. Can you refresh my memory and tell me what I sent you?

RE: Andrew Johnston
I rearranged the photos. On deleting the other things, the person who posted them has to do the deleting. I can only delete what I posted.

Thanks for sponsoring Maj. Johnston's memorial. It is a true honor to have posted a memorial for such a courageous hero. Standing at his grave-site, we were truly moved.

If there is anything else, please let me know.

Do you have directions to the Bragg Cemetery?
I was wondering if you have any suggestions on the best way to get to the Bragg Cemetery. I won't promise that I will be able to get photos taken there but I sure would like to try when things warm up this spring. Walking very far is my biggest problem and I believe the cemetery is back in a field quite some distance. I sure wish there was a road to it.

RE: Bragg Cemetery
I would love to photograph the Bragg Cemetery but I am not sure when or if I will get to it. I had hoped to do some last fall but farm work kept me busy. We have had some very difficult times recently and I just haven't been up to taking photos like I had planned to. Hopefully things will improve soon.

You obviously no there are two memorials for John. Would you be so kind as to merger yours with the one created in 2002 and then delete yours.

You created a Find A Grave on 2010. There was already a Find A Grave created for John on 2002.

Would you be so kind as to merge your information with the first grave and delete yours.

Thanks so much.

Headstones for Hill & Epperson
I want to thank you so much for the nice photos of their headstones. I appreciate it very much. I live in California and can't take the photos so it is wonderful to have people that are willing to walk the cemeteries and take the photos that those of can't. Again thank you!!

Thanks so much for your generosity and hard work on the memorials you transferred to me. I promise to take good care of them and I have already been doing links. Just curious. What city is this cemetery located in?

Smith Bradshaw
Hi! Smith Bradshaw is a 3X Great Grandfather of mine. memorial #138965761

You mention moving this memorial to Bradshaw Cemetery on the memorial page. I'm very curious if you know anything about that cemetery. If there is anything left of it really? BTW I'd guess you are correct that that's where he was buried.

RE: Hugh & Emma Johnson
Thanks for your help. I've transferred Hugh Johnson to you so you can add any info you wish to his bio. The marker I photographed was the only Hugh Johnson I found in the Englewood Cemetery records so I can't answer the mausoleum issue.

Sarah Jane Long is my 2nd Great GrandAunt. I created her memorial. Transferring Robert's is optional. I'll think about it while I'm away.
Thanks for the help.
