Find A Grave Memorial# 29451612
With respect to Find A Grave Memorial# 29451612, I am curious why you would show a confederate battle flag in your "flower" for a Union soldier. The US flag would be more appropriate. Not a big deal, but, what would he have thought?

Elizabeth Ring, Memorial# 121469237
I just want to thank you for being so thorough in your posting to Elizabeth's memorial. You provided me with a lot of information. With researching my families since 1965 I know how hard you have worked to obtain all the information on her and others.
Again, thank you. I am sure others do as well but don't express their thanks.

Thomas Fetherston
Thomas Everett Fetherston is my 2nd great grandfather. I'm looking for evidence that his father is the Thomas Fetherston who is the son of John Fetherston and Sarah Silverheels. In the 1880 census, Thomas Everett reported that his father was born in Ireland. Our DNA seems to support this. Can you help prove the link?

Looking for more information

Sorry, I don't see your name here.

I am looking for more information on Find A Grave Memorial# 151162166, for William Brewster I, born in 1470 in Rushmore, Waveney District, Suffolk, died in 1521 in Arksey in South Yorkshire, buried at All Saints Churchyard in Arksey.

Specifically, where does "William I" come from, and, above all, where did you get the information that he was born in Rushmore, Suffolk?

RE: Alice Hoar
Thats the thing, I saw that to but I have also found that it might of been used as a title for her instead of a last name. There is a lot of speculation about who she really is but no documented evidence to prove that she really is the daughter of Lord John Lisle. He would of been about 14 when she was born. I did find that John Hoar's brother, Leonard, married Bridget Lisle who was the daughter of Lord John Lisle and his second wife Lady Alice (Alicia). It is here that I believe people have been getting very confused on it.

There is speculation that she may be Alice Sidney who could of been the daughter of Robert Sidney. Robert Sidney was granted the title of Viscount Lisle on 1605 which might be the reason why the name comes up in her records. That information is from Wikipedia so there is some room for that to be a error but I believe that it might be better for her not to have the parents connected unless there is deep proof as to that. is the Wikipedia entry. If I do find out anything more on her, I will let you know as I am a direct descendant of Alice from my research and will still be searching for more information.

I'm curious how you determined the birth/death dates for Thomas and William Winslow, the ancestors of the Winslow's that came to America on the Mayflower. There are discrepancies between your dates and other records I've found, though perhaps yours are more accurate as the other records are from genealogy research from 100+ years ago ("The Tracy Family/The Winslow Family" compiled by Scott Lee Boyd available in, and "The Kenelm Winslow Memorial" by David Parsons Holton, which I found a digital copy of in Google).

You have Thomas Winslow b. 1465 and d. 1507; William Winslow b. 1500 and d. 1562, and Kenelm Winslow b. 1534 d. 1607 (this Kenelm is my 13th great grandfather).

The other records I've mentioned list a William Wyncelow b. 1340, then Thomas Winselowe born about 1380 and was living in 1443 and 1452, and listing William born about 1435-1440. Then there is no date given for Kenelm Winslow's birth, only death in 1607. This timeline leaves a long gap between William and Kenelm, and the authors of the sources I mentioned above discuss some uncertainty here (for instance is there a generation gap?). The timeline you've listed on the other hand, makes more sense chronologically but doesn't go further back than Thomas.

Any further insight would be helpful!

Elizabeth Ariana Bentnick
Elizabeth married John Berkeley, Baron Berkeley of Stratton, after the death of her first husband. The couple had no children. She is buried at St. Mary the Virgin, Bruton, Somerset, England. Her coffin is in the crypt of the church, and there is a plaque on top that says, "The Right Hon. Lady Eliz. Adriana Egerton, daughter of Wm. Late Earl of Portland, Widow of the Hon. Doctor Henry Egerton, Late Bishop of Hereford, Died 9th November 1765, In the 69 Year of Her Age." I had some difficulty reading the plaque as it is quite eroded (September 2014); it may say ". . .in the 62nd year of her age."

Jedidiah Darrow as a son of Dennison Darrow?
On your memorial # 98902129 for Jedidiah Darrow, you state that his parents were Dennison Darrow and wife Martha. I would like to start a conversation with you regarding whatever proof you have for Jedidiah as a son of Dennison, as I have found a will of Dennison in which he leaves his estate "to his two sons James and John" Thank you for your help with this, as I am trying to help a friend join DAR on her Darrow line.

I wanted to see how you wanted me to proceed with this request. I spoke with someone at the genealogy/history department nearby and they are familiar with the cemetery. The confirmed the headstone is still there, but unreadable. It is one of two headstones...just not sure which one. They are both beside another stone for the Noe family. I have photos of all of them.

You had placed an edit for my Helen de Quincy to be linked you her mother, your memorial #175490995. I was wanting to know, what source did you find for her burial? We visited the remains of the abbey, local sources and did extensive research, and found no source. Thank you, ever so much!

Stratton-Quin-Weathersby edits
Hello, and thanks for the edits for the Stratton, Quin and Weathersby memorials in Magnolia Cemetery. As you appear to know about this family I am transferring these to you for management. If there are others in this cemetery that you would like to have, please let me know.

I have been gradually photographing this cemetery as time allows and it may be April or May before I get back over there, but I will add photographs as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Terry Stinson

James Harvey Strobridge
Dear Our Family History,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, James Harvey Strobridge was a member of this unit.

I'm not sure where I'm going with my project, but I'm hoping to eventually publish something. When I do, would it be permissible to use your photograph of the family photo that includes James Harvey Strobridge on (Find A Grave Memorial# 72147994)? Which one is James Harvey?

I don't aniticipate using it, but since I'm not sure what my goal is, I want to be prepared in case I change my mind.

Thank you!

Bryan Anderson

Vandalized Grave
If you haven't already heard, I regret to tell you that Adeline Hart's (b 1855) grave stone was vandalized, along with a couple of others, at the Scottsboro Cemetery. I have no additional info other than its making the rounds on facebook. There was a mention of trying to notify the family as well, which you seem likely to be.

RE: Anna Magdalena Brandstetter Alspach
Never mind, he apparently just moved Reinhart's memorial to St Paul's. Harry

RE: Anna Magdalena Brandstetter Alspach
Thank you for moving her memorial to the correct cemetery. As far as I know her husband is buried in the same cemetery. He is definitely not buried in St Johns as that church and cemetery were not started until 1773.

I've already sent the manager of Reinhart's memorial a message asking him to move it to St Paul's but so far he hasn't done it. If he doesn't do it soon I suggest you try and he's still unresponsive we'll have to get an administrator to do it.
