Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi! I was born and raised in Howell County, Mo. Moved to Newton, Kansas at age 15, then to Texas at 20. I got interested in geneology in about 2000, and really enjoy finding relatives who don't know they are! My mom's family came from northern Tennessee, the Overton, Fentress and Pickett county region, and my dad's family is from Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa and Ontario, canada. I've been doing Find-A-Grave memorials for a while now and enjoy it very much. When I decide to upload a memorial, I use all my resources to try and learn all I can about the individual first, so I can include a decent bio. I believe they deserve that much from me. Hard as I try though, I do make mistakes. If you happen to discover one, please drop me a line and I'll fix it!

You had created a Find A Grave memorial for Rebecca Hood Clinton, Mount Ararat Cemetery.

By chance are you related to her?

Re Nancy Carroll.

You call this person a single man in the biol section.
The parents you cite are correct but Nancy (Nannie) was a daughter not a son.

Flora Livingstone McIntyre

I noticed you have Flora Livingstone married to William McIntyre; however William is her brother-in-law. She married Daniel McIntyre. Is there a way to unlink Flora and William? Flora's number is 35129432. Thank you.

Robert Kye Carroll
When I try to delete his memorial, I get pop up message from Findagrave that I can't delete it because I didn't create the memorial, even though I now manage it. I did complete a request for deletion. I don't know if this request will go to you or Findagrave handles it.

Hi John. Please delete Find A Grave Memorial# 32324594 that your created for Kye Carroll. He is actually buried at Liberty Baptist Church Cemetery, Find A Grave Memorial# 82896060; although his birth and death dates need to be corrected. Hope all is well with you. Thanks.

James Hitchcock
James H & Susan Hitchcock Family
Hi John;

First off I would like to thank you for creating the memorial pages for my Great Great Grandparents. James H. Hitchcock # 35404086, and Susan Cora (Hurst) Hitchcock # 35404165. It was nice to be able to find their memorials and the picture of their headstone.

Next could you add the following children to their memorial pages, as they seem to be missing. I will list the memorial numbers if I have them as well.

Samuel Hitchcock - b. 05 Jan 1900 d. 20 Aug 1987 # 14762370

Fred Hitchcock - b. 15 Sep 1901 d. 4 Mar 1967 # 14762342

Earl Hitchcock - b. 21 Oct 1903 d. 19 Mar 1936 # 30564718

There are two other children of James and Susan, but I have not been able to determine is they have passed away so I will not list them.

Thank you. If you have any questions please leave me a message on this site.

J James Hitchcock

Wow! Thank you John - Edward Carroll biography
John, thank you SO much for the thorough biography of Edward Carroll who immigrated to Ohio in 1801. That dovetails with what I just read on David O'Carroll's page about Edward Carroll:


The story of the O'Carrolls on these pages starts in 1690 but they are an ancient family that can trace their roots to the early history of Ireland. In the 14th century, Teige O'Carroll defeated the forces of King Richard II which had invaded the Kingdom of Ely O'Carroll in 1395. The O'Carrolls had withstood the most powerful of armies of the time and repelled them. But by 1590 the O'Carrolls had lost most of their power and by the Cromwellian confiscations, most of their territory and so by 1690 the O'Carrolls fought at the Battle of the Boyne in a desperate bid to regain independence for Ireland from under the English yoke.

This site includes information about Col.Thomas O'Carroll and his descendants. He was the brother of Charles Carroll who emigrated to Maryland in 1688 (the grandfather of Charles Carroll of Carrollton who signed the American Declaration of Independence). Colonel Thomas O'Carroll fought and died at the Battle of the Boyne leaving two young sons. The orphaned boys were removed from their hearth to families far away in the North. One was to become a farmer in Moira the other we know not where.

This boy prospered, married and had many children. By the end of the eighteenth century some of his 10 grandchildren had moved to Cork and in 1800 Edward, who had inherited the homestead, sold up to a neighbour and emigrated to the USA settling in East Liverpool, in what is now Ohio in 1801. The family in Cork moved to England at the end of the nineteenth century.

So, if you would like to join me in following the family fortunes that took family members to revolutionary France, Brazil the emerging United States and the West Indies please click on any of the headings to the left that takes your fancy.

from David O'Carroll, August 2005
Above text from David's page:

It's been interesting discovering that Edward Carroll is descended from Irish people who already came and went from the America already!

I'm trying to discover if my ancestor Sgt. Vincent P. Carroll is related to this Edward Carroll of Ireland/Ohio.

Nehs/ Nease family
John, I left a message on the flower part of a memorial. I hope you read it, it gives the family tree back to 1740 with the name change on it too. He had 2 grandfathers on his side alone in the Rev.War. I do hope you are one of us.
