Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been climbing around
on my Family Tree, swinging
on it's branches, and digging
at it's roots for over
30 years, (since 1975).
I have been widowed since 1991, retired in 2005.
I LOVE Find-A-Grave. It is a wonderful
asset to the genealogy world.
If I've created a record that someone
needs to correct, update or add
information, please let me know and
I'll be glad to add your information
for you;... or if the person is your
direct family member, and you would
like to have me transfer "ownership"
of that memorial page to you, please
let me know...If that person is not
related to me and they are directly
related to you; I will be glad to
transfer their memorial to you.
However, I want to note:
Nearly all of the memorials that I
have created are connected to my
family tree and are a result of a
lot of years hard work and research.

To all the members who have been
kind enough to transfer "ownership"
of my family members to me....
Find A Grave is one of my favorite
It has given me a place that I can
remember my loved ones and honor
their memory.

If you have time, please leave a flower
for my dear husband, Roy E. Hughes.

Why do you think she is buried at Board Branch. I am almost certain she is not, at least not with herPrice family.

Frank Marion Mangleburg
Hey LoRetta,

Thanks so much for your hard work of compiling this info.

Frank Marion Mangleburg is my grandfather and he is not buried at Evergreen Cemetery, he is at "Riverside Memorial Park" 7242 Normandy Blvd in Jacksonville FL. His daughter (my mom) is at Evergreen Cemetery.

I am an absolute beginner at "Tree Climbing" and I have been trying to learn about the "Mangleburgs"

I did send this change suggestion to Find a Grave.

Thank you.
If I get any DNA evidence that changes this I will let you know.

Miles A Smithhart #16190538
Miles father was John Smithhart per information extracted from probate records:

Jonathon Cochran left a will in Warren Co. leaving Miles, Mariah and Francis their part of their mother's, Melinda, wife of John Smithhart—from Lucille Calder Martin 2015

Information from Lucille who descends from the daughter Delzie Emiline Smithhart Calder

We still need to validate the relationship between Silas Garoc and Miles. Miles Mariah and Frances were in the household of Silas in 1850 and are often “assumed” to be his children.

Obviously they are the children of John ? Smithhart, who may/may not have murdered his wife and children in 1801-2 in S.C. This John would have to have been born before 1810 in order to have fathered Miles who was born in 1827. There are records for several different John Smithhart/Smithart/Smithheart's in Mississippi around that time.

Some DNA indicates a relationship between the various people but what degree is still in question. But DNA indicates he is probably a nephew not a son of Silas.

Would you consider removing the parental link to Silas?
