Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi! I'm a Woman Marine veteran, 72, mother of 2, G-mother to 11 and GG-mother to 7. After 27 yrs in the Pacific NW (last working as an Engineer with Intel Corp) we retired in 2005, moving to Missouri.

If I do not respond after a couple of tries contact the FAG administrators I wouldn't want you to think I was ignoring you. [FAG may contact my daughter Robin Bergeron to update my profile.]

I am NOT related to the Missouri memorials I have entered or maintain. I entered them for you! Happy to transfer.

Sarah C. McHenry (Goodwin/Marsh)
I see that you have done some genealogical work on the McHenry family of Ridgeway/Harrison/Missouri. I am specifically interested in Sarah's first husband.

My husband is a descendant of Anthony Wayne Goodwin, shown living with Sarah and Step-dad (William Marsh) in 1900 census. I can't find any evidence of Sarah's death but assumed that she died prior to 1910 because the kids were scattered. I can't find her burial but assume that she is an unmarked grave in Ridgeway/Missouri with the rest of her family unless they were living away from them at the time of her death.

Do you know anything about her first husband? Some contributors have linked her oldest son's grave (Sidney Arthur) to T.E. Goodwin. This would make sense in that extended members of the family think that the dad's name was Edgar Goodwin, but the date of death on the grave (1891) doesn't work for Anthony Wayne's birth year(1893). Do you know anything? Living in Oregon makes it difficult to do much digging around. Anything you know would be great. Between being orphaned in his teens and moving west, there is little in the way of a family connection to this branch.

Many thanks.

Samuel V. McHenry 100771447
I received a message from a Find A Grave member named L. Longo saying this about Samuel V. McHenry:
I believe that he is the oldest son of Almond Hugh McHenry and May Ann McHenry, both buried in Ridgeway/Harrison/Missouri.

Since you posted a photo of him and his family, I figured you were the one to contact to see if he's correct. I have his mother as Martha Melissa Barber McHenry.

Dickerson Children #33432993
These children all seem to be listed individually in this cemetery so this would be a duplicate. I don't actually think any of the children, other than Anna, are even buried here. The mother, Hilvey's obituary says the daughter Anna was the only child who came with them when they moved from St. Louis about 1871. All the boys died in infancy except the one killed in the civil war. Sad situation. I believe the names were all put on here in a way to sort of keep the family together. Anyway, the children would be a duplicate. Thanks, Rhonda

Knotts family transfers
Coleah, I do so appreciate your swift transfer of my grandfather's family, about whom he reminisced when I was a child. He would be so thrilled if he were still here, and I'm thrilled to be getting it done because he loved them so much. I can still remember his voice and his expression as he talked about them.

I hope you realize what a wonderful thing you've done for all of us who can't get around to all the cemeteries, or who didn't know which cemeteries our loved ones were in. You're a lovely person, and I'm very grateful.

Elizabeth Wright Tindall
Unfortunately this is a different woman than the one you sent the birth information for--it appears you may have been looking at the Ancestry information for a different Elizabeth Wright who was born on that date in Tennessee(?)
Elizabeth Ann "Bettie" King Wright Find A Grave Memorial# 18755396

When reseraching this, I saw her death certificate come up on Ancestry. This is not the same woman, so I had to decline the edit.

131032188 and 131032150 Everett and Elsie George are my parents. I'd like to link them so I can edit their information or take over their accounts to connect them to the family tree in which they belong. I like the pictures of their headstones and the cemetery and would like to keep them. Can we make this happen?

Ward family
I do believe there is a mistake on the information for Bessie Ann (Ward) Ford #21651831. She was the daughter of William S. Ward # 21652440. She was not his sibling. They are listed in the 1940 census and William and Cassie are listed as father and mother. My Great Grandmother was a sister of Cassie.
