When you send me edits, your profile needs to have a way for me to reach you if I have questions about your edits that need answering. If your messages are turned off (you can message others but they can't message you), and you don't provide me with an email address, I WILL NOT waste my time leaving you a message through some other memorial. Expecting people to use the option six on any memorial as means of leaving you a message about the correction you sent me is an abuse of the system, IMHO. If we can't discuss the edit because you don't want to hear from people, then your edit isn't serious enough to take up my time or anyone elses. In other words, don't waste my time, and don't waste the time of others. It's rude.

IMPORTANT: Edits should be sent through the Find A Grave listing using the edit tabs. I verify all updates before making the change. If there is not enough information for me to verify your edits, I may ask for your sources. I am not doing this to be a pain, but I have received edits from people who *think* that they have one person, when in fact they don't.

I am happy to transfer people that I have added, if am not descended from that person.

Finally, a word about "FRIENDS" on Find A Grave. The people that I have listed as friend on my account are people that I know, personally. Please do not add me as a friend of yours on your profile unless we know one and other off of Find A Grave, or you have asked me if you can add me. Just a simple courtesy.

RE: Picture of Jimmy Conlin's gravemarker
I don't have the image from October 2015. Perhaps you can right click, copy, & upload to her Find A Grave post.

Thank you for understanding.

RE: Ralph Hilleary
Sorry for the delay - I wanted to verify the address. The actual mailing address in Cumberland, MD. However, that is very misleading. The section where the burial is located is called Potomac Park, with appropriate signage along Rt. 220 S. of Cumberland. The burial itself is in the area of Potomac Park called Fairgo, due to its proximity to the Allegany County Fairgrounds. I think if I were listing it, I would say: Fairgo, Potomac Park, Cumberland, MD. However, it's up to you.

I appreciate your trying to correct this error that is spread throughout the internet. We can only do our best! Thank you!

RE: Ralph Hilleary
The stone has not been moved. The burial is on property owned by the family at the time. The location of his burial, Oldtown, is not right. In the 1810 census, it states that he lived in the Upper Oldtown District of Allegany County, whish is where the burial is located. This area is SOUTH of Cumberland, MD, along route 220 and the Potomac River. Oldtown, MD, is on the east side of Cumberland, miles and miles away. Somebody based the burial location upon census data, not knowing where Upper Oldtown was. The mistake has been carried forth ad infinitum on the internet. I have a photo of the old stone, bearing the names of Ralph, his wife, and son Levi, as well as the location of it. Oldtown, MD was named by Thomas Cresap, the pioneer. Some of his sons lived along the Potomac River, south of Cumberland, thus naming the area Upper Oldtown, as it was the upper part of the Potomac River, along which Thomas Cresap also lived.

RE: Mina Powell
She may have taken the Powell name since James & Rebecca took her into their home so young. But in the 1880 she is going by Snyder. Have you check her name as Wilamina? I don't know if that is the correct spelling.
Also my Husband's side have the name of Schneider in this line. There are MANY Spellings. You may want to check that out.
I will also continue to check once I am back in Ohio. Traveling now from Arizona.

RE: Mina Powell
In the 1880 census living with James and Rebecca Powell they have 2 additional children.
John Russel 'cousin' Who was the son of Margaret Lucas & Jonathan Russel who seem to have died before 1880
and Mina Synder at 1 'cousin'
but I can not connect her the Lucas Side of the family?
I have not done any research on the Powell family. But I will keep looking for more on her.
You may want to see if there is an adoption papers or custody papers in Marion Regarding her.
