Bio and Links
Bio Photo Research of my families encompasses a wide-ranging list of surnames and locales. My primary focus is (paternal) Fortney, Groves, Knapp, & Summers and (maternal) Armstrong, Boylen & Fawley all of whom eventually ended-up in West Virginia including those who migrated early-on from Maryland, Pennsylvania & (old) Virginia.

The majority of memorials I have created are of my relatives. However, I have created some memorials for unrelated folks whose headstones I just happened to photograph while visiting a particular cemetery. If I have created a memorial that you'd like transferred to you, please send a note via normal channels under the 'Edit' tab of the memorial with a comment stating your relationship to that person.

Headstone Photos: permission is hereby given to relatives to use my headstone photos for their personal use. You can right click on a photo and select to Save to your computer.

If you are or think you are related to me, please contact me by email and/or visit my website.

RE: Thomas Jefferson Fawley #168851366
You're welcome! That's why I'm a contributor to F.A.G.; to help people seeking deceased family members. Flemington Cemetery and the Flemington I.O.O.F. Cemetery is the same cemetery. I have no idea why there are 2 different listings for the cemetery because it's confusing to users. I will contact FindAGrave to correct that. If there's anything else that I can do to help, don't hesitate to ask. Many blessings to you and yours!!

Thank you so much for the transfers... a sweet bonus. I am related through the Radabaugh side. I'm a distant relative but will take great care of them. Much appreciated! -- Colyn

4th marriage 1900 Houston Co., Tx Sarah Sallie F Brown children 4?

In 1900 census
Children shown were Calebs by previous marriage to Mary Jane Oates.
Mary May and Dora Laura Summers.
In the 1900 census Sarah told census recorder that she is the mother of 2 children, 2 living in 1900?? Those two in census are from previous marriage.

In the 1910 census there are two children
Lucille Summers b 1902-1903
Julia Summers b 1904-1905
In the 1910 census, she shows mother of 3, 2 children living in 1910.??

Do you have any info on Caleb and Sarah's children? Still working on them..
