Bio and Links
Please do not use my personal photos or the bios on my memorials unless you ask first. I've researched and written all the information included on these memorials, some information is not included on any document found at Ancestry.
Copy and pasting is not researching!

I've been researching my family genealogy for over 20 years and love doing it.
Most of the memorials I've added are family.
I've also added some Scotland's Comonwealth War Dead, my interest stems from a great uncle that died in WWI. I found his record in the CWGC.

Transfer gladly done if they're not my family. Or will add any info or links you may have. If anyone has any corrections or info to add on any of my memorials, I'd also be happy to add it, if it is sourced.

If you are also searching these surnames I'd love to hear from you. I'm always willing to share factual information.

RE: Ruth E Bown/Edit
Thanks for writing Jill. My source for Ruth's DOB (and her DOD) is page 87 in A Genealogical Record Of William Brown and Descendants, compiled in 1905 by W. H. Taylor (great grandson of William Brown) and revised in 1978 by M. E. Hayslett, Gateway Press, Baltimore, 1978. I have not other documentation. If you have better information please let me know.

Ruth is first cousin, 4x removed of my wife Ruth Louise (Ollis) Cook. My Ruth is a wonderful woman, and a very good wife for nearly 62 years now.

James Tague
Hello, I have come across the information you provided on James Tague. I was wondering if you know if he had a child before he died?
The information I have on a James Tague is he married my GG grandmother Alice and died months later but had a son either right before he died or right after.

RE: Sgt Harold Desmond Purbrick- St. Margaret Churchyard
Sorry about that Jill. I did realise that I had created an incorrect link, but thought that I had amended it. John

Mary Ann Eagens
I am researching my SIL genealogy. He is descended from a William W Wagner (1823-1906). The St Luke's Reformed church (Trappe, PA) records at the HSMC list a Wilhelm Wagner b. Mar 31, 1823, parents Frederick and Hannah Wagner. The birth date is consistent with a William Wagner in the 1850-1900 censuses. The same church record list a Marianna Wagner, b. Aug 8, 1825, parents Frederick Wagner & Hannah. I have concluded this Frederick and your Mary Ann are brother-sister. Based on additional information I have concluded that their parents are Frederick Wagner and Hannah Keely (1792-1862) who are buried at the former Union Chapel church on Henderson Rd in King of Prussia. What is your assessment of my conclusions. Do you have any information on the parents of Frederick Wagner. If you wish you can contact me at or 610-908-3898. Bill Birely

North Uphall Parish Churchyard

Jill, somebody has created a site for the Churchyard with a lot of memorials. See link above. I could not understand why I could not find Lieut. SHAIRP, so I searched his name and found your memorial. I will leave it to you to try to get the duplicate Churchyard merged. BTW, i have tried to get a photo of his grave, but coul not find it. I suspect he must be inside the Church which was locked.

Dolores Collins Savage
Hi, Jill, I see you list yourself as an 'ancestor' on the Find A Grave Memorial# 60433022. I am researching (for about 50 years) the family tree of Swearingens who originated in W. MO. Until this attempt at contacting you I had hoped your listing as an 'ancestor' there, and the additional information you had included, meant you were a direct ancestor. Since I now see you have around 1,200 memorials I suspect this is not the case, but if you are I would like to discuss with you whether Dolores was born a Collins or a Swearingen. Quite a few documents I have researched indicate the latter, but would appreciate any clarification you might be able to add. Since my tree will include documentation for the dates you include and since the photos on that memorial are not your own, I would also appreciate permission to use them in my tree. Thanks in advance for any help you may provide, and thanks for being a contributor.
Regards, Bob
