Dempsey, Francis Families
Are you related to the Dempsey family in New York?

My Grandmother is adopted and our DNA is pointing strongly to the Dempsey family on one side and the Francis family on the other side. Grandma was born in Pittsburgh but her parents were supposedly from New York.

RE: Daniel Smith Edit
Hi Dave,
Evidence of his date of birth is just his headstone photo, which despite its antiquity, pretty clearly shows date of death July 6, 1846; aged 80 years.

There's a PA Veterans Burial Card for him which shows he was a War of 1812 Veteran with 1 month, 11 days service; Pvt. in Capt. McManigle's Co., 132nd Regt. Pa. Inf. from 1/1/1814 to 2/10/1814. There are no birth or death dates on the card.

Admittedly, even if he was born in July 1766, he would have been a bit "long in the tooth" for military service at age 47; but not out of the realm of possibility, especially for the War of 1812 where many men answered the call and volunteered for very short terms of service.

I can post it to Daniel's memorial if you like.

Cheers, Rich

RE: Re: Find A Grave Correction: Thomas Houston
Thanks Dave. Your memorial is a cenotaph. Thomas is actually buried in Green-Wood Cemetery.I checked with them today. Would you mind making note of that? Thanks so much! ~Anne

Good Morning,

Would you please remove the photo you put up of my grandfather's grave marker (and which includes my uncle Pete's marker). Posting it was a thoughtful gesture on your part, but I had already posted one, and it only serves to clutter my memorial to Grandpa David.

I appreciate it!

Thank you,

-Joshua Reader
