RE: Sponsoring my Parents' FAG memorials
It's my pleasure, Sharon, to sponsor your Mom & Dad. I was so taken by the memories you shared about them. Plus, they were just such a beautiful couple - I just had to do it! Take care!

Hi Sharon, You are most welcome to the transfer! I like to think that those who have passed away won't be forgotten if a Find A Grave memorial has been made. Glad you found her! In case you aren't aware, Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness is back on line ( It is a wonderful and free site to garner help :). Cheers, Charlet

Hello Sharon:
Looks like the problem has been fixed, but not sure. Could you check it again and see if you need me to do something?

William Johns
Polly Ogden
I am researching the my family from Mass. in 1790's, and I believe that I may have a connection to you. Is it possible that polly Ogden's maiden name was Polly Johns, and her parents were Stephen and Sally Johns (Possilby Sara Johns).

Robert Boehm Rathbun
Polly Ogden, the wife of John. I would love to have an exchange through emails concerning Polly Ogden and a possible first marriage.

I believe Polly married first Henry Rathbun but no doubt divorced between 1822-1825. William C. Rathbun (at times Rathburn or Rathbone) is listed with a mother, Polly Ogden, on his death record in 1911. No father is listed no doubt as Henry Rathbun had died early. William C. Rathbun was born October 23, 1816 in Catherine, New York and died in Union, Pennsylvania December 18, 1911. I believe the William Ogden age 34, listed in the home of John and Polly Ogden in 1850 is actually. Further, William C. Rathbun is living next door to Polly Ogden in Union, Pennsylvania in 1870.

Your thoughts?

RE: Charles DeVall
I have checked the copy of the lot book and in the original cemetery in Lot 74 there are suppose to be 4 infants or small children buried. There is a Maudie Devall, Chettie Devall and a Lester Devall along with an infant . It looks like that was the one fore Chettie so we were both half right.I deleted the one for Charles since that was incorrect.
Is that Maudie or Mandie. The obit says Mandie. If it is Mandie and it is quite possible this is an N instead of a U, the name can be changed to be correct.

The next time I go Back I will see if Maudie's stone is still there. I find I have already taken pictures of all three of those stones at one time. There is none for the infant. I imagine it was either stillborn or died at birth. In most cases there isn't a stone put up for them but it is buried in the same lot as the other three.
When I am getting photos for someone else I try to take all the ones that I run across that are either broken and down on the ground or getting illegible so they will be there for the next generations.

I think this may be another one of the children that died the same time as Lester. His stone is right next to Lesters

I have added Maddux and McNutt info in the Haskew Cemetery and linked them to the DeVall's.
Checking on Laura DeVall parents, I have found a marriage license for her father under pmcbrasil family tree on Ancestry that listed the date of death for his first wife as Feb 9, 1894. This needs to checked before adding Betsey to Laura post.
Let me know what you find out.

Nope--not related. I have about 26,000 memorials and I am not related to most of them. Most of my relatives are managed by other Find A Grave volunteers.

These are my great-great grandparents through my father's mother. My grandmother, Bessie Hotchkiss was a Gillaspy and her mother was Linnie DeVall Gillaspy. I am still working on the children of the DeVall's. All are buried in the Burlingame Cemetery.

Patrick O'Rorke note
Sharon, As I am a fellow civil war fan, I appreciate all the notes that you and others have left behind. I have just recently started doing so as well.

One note about your note on Patrick O'Rorke's memorial...I'm sure you were standing on top of Little Round Top, vice Little Big Horn, when you gazed upon the valley of death. This caught my eye, as I've studied the heck out of Custer's Last Stand.

While on the subject of O'Rorke (a hero of Gettysburg, in my eye), do you know about the nose on his memorial? Rubbing his nose is supposed to bring good lick; the nose on his face is shiny from the many people who have rubbed it over the years.

Lastly, next time you're in Gettysburg, stop at the Applician (sp?) brewery, next to the Lee's hq house...they have super mac n cheese, with a mound of crispy bacon piled on top.

Keep the notes acoming !!!!! ~ Tom Fonner

RE: Dixie Lee Swift
I looked at the local funeral home to see what they had in their record. They have Dixie listed as an infant, but no further info. I also checked the paper to see if there was an obit, but found nothing. I would guess that you are looking for an older person, but you could try contacting the funeral home to see if they have any further info.
