|Bio and Links|
I've been researching my family history for almost 30 years and this is an absolute passion :)|
Primary surnames are McCluskey, Curran, Barber, Neil & Edgar (maternal) and Chester, Thompson, Slawson, Templeton & Holmes (paternal).
I share with many the firm belief that we are merely stewards of 'our' memorials - we manage them and are entrusted with their care and maintenance, but we do not technically 'own' them. As another member stated, the ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away - regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.
Many thanks to all who have provided photos or edits. It truly 'takes a village'.
Working within the FAG rules, I'm certainly open to transferring memorials or updating as needed; my goal is to 'connect not collect'. Please use the Edit tab.
You are welcome to copy and use anything I post in any way you like.

Joe, are you on Ancestry.com? My account is mmcpherson194. You can either ask to view mine or send me yours and I will add you in. I do have some info on Moses and Sarah.
|jane austin||RE: Raymond W. Howard (# 146732339)|
You're welcome, Joe. Raymond is no kin to me. I just happened to run across his obituary. You're doing a great job. Thank you for the offer, but I think he's happy where he is. :)
Have a great day! :)

Thank you Joe.

Thank you for your generosity in letting your pictures be used; I feel the same way and I wish more people did too! Maybe he is only my 3rd cousin 5x removed, but it means a lot as I put my family together! Warm regards and best wishes to you!
|Northern Neighbors||Thank you|
for the prompt response!
|Debra Stanley||RE: Wesley Slawson (101430487)|
I have the following information on Wesley Slawson buried here:
He was 60 years old at the time of death. He died from consumption. He was a member of the GAR, Co. F 189 New York Infantry during the Civil War. His nativity was New York. His wife was Lucy and they had a daughter named Hattie.
Hattie married a man named Morgan Walker then married a man named Andrew Jackson Stone.
Wesley, Lucy, Morgan, Andrew, and Hattie are all buried on the same lot here.
I do have a newspaper clipping about Wesley that I can e-mail to you if you'd like.
We do not have any information on siblings or parents, though.
Hope this helps!
