Bio and Links
Bio Photo Direct descendant of Israel Heath and Elizabeth Blue through their son Richard Blue Heath. I have researched and compiled a 700+pg family tree on all 9 children of Israel Heath and Elizabeth (Blue) Heath, and written an oral history of the Heath family migration from VA to MO and points beyond. The original Heath family consisted of 5 sons, 2 daughters. (Joseph, James, Jonas, Zachariah, and Israel, sister Ann Nancy Heath and one unknown sister yet to be found.)

Always happy to hear from other Heath descendants to share and exchange information, collect oral history. I have been working hard on collecting old photographs for preservation of descendants from all 9 children of the Israel Heath line. Please share copies of old photos with me if you are a Heath descendant. I was able to locate photos of two of their original 9 children: a photo of David M Heath, Daviess Co MO and eldest son James Heath from Platte Co MO. I have placed them on their Find a Grave memorials for Heath descendants to find. Any PHOTOS I have put on Find a Grave, you are welcome to make 'yours'-I put them there on purpose so descendants can find them. Please ADD any old PHOTOS you may have as well.

If you would like a family memorial transferred to you for maintenance, please contact me through the normal edit tab on the memorial. I'm happy to do so. I'm not stuck on the 4 generation rule but on who is doing the research and will make nice memorials and maintain them.

I also research the following surnames related to me: John Warren family from Heard Co GA into TX, Thomas C Poor family from Delaware County, Indiana into early Butte MT, Augustus Hessel family from Grand Island, Nebraska.

Retta Russell Bailey #1384443377
First of all, let me thank you for your tireless effort in behalf of those of us who are seeking our roots and branches. I have been doing research for over sixty years and Find A Grave is one of the most important sources that I have found!

Concerning the record for Retta Russell Bailey, the birth date, death date and burial place on this Find A Grave record appear to be those of Fred L Baily's second wife, Nancy Marietta "Retta" Casides Bailey, #43383579. Jonathan Russell's daughter Etta May was Bailey's first wife.

According to the 1880 Census for Taylor, Sullivan, Missouri, Etta P. Russell, born abt 1871, is Jonathan Russell's. oldest child by his second wife. Etta married Fred L. Bailey 21 Jan 1895 in Sullivan County, Missouri. Their son Russell J. was born Jan 1900 and they apparently were divorced soon after as he married Retta Carsides Bailey in 1903. In 1940 Etta was living in Minneapolis, had completed four years of college and died there 10 May 1953 (Minnesota, Death Index, 1908-2002.) Her grave is found at Find A Grave Memorial# 147116022

Etta and Retta are easily confused.

Again, I doff my hat to you great contributions to family history research.

Albert Poor

I am a descendant of Thomas C. Poor, and was looking at your page for Albert Poor. Based on your research, I believe you have Albert's birth date listed as his death date. Thus, this places his birth in 1849. Not a big deal, but thought you might want to know.

I really appreciate all the information you have provided, and LOVE the pictures on Martha Jane Haynes Poor's find-a-grave site. I actually have a copy of the middle picture, the one that is nearly impossible to see, but I would love to get a digital copy of the others if you don't mind.

Thanks for all your efforts! They are appreciated!!

The new Find A Grave # 57911737 worked perfectly. Thank you.


Such good research.

We updated our info/documents accordingly.

Thank You,

RE: George Washingtom Baldwin
Thanks for getting back so quickly!

After leaving you that message, I found the 1860 census records, listing George and Sarah as 3 years and 5 months, respectively. They were then listed on the 1860 census as both being I see what you mean about the ages magically changing. I guess I'll keep trying to track down the twin genes. Thanks again!

James Joseph Russell
I have just discovered a possible DNA connection to James Joseph Russell. I think perhaps he is the brother of my 5th g grandfather John Russell, born around 1756, I don't know where, lived in Washington County, Virginia, and migrated to Missouri. Died in 1821 in Missouri. I would appreciate any information you have that might help establish this relationship. Janet Russell Valade . I have a web page for John Russell's family at

Neal J. Warren #106029061
Further to your question of Nov. 1 regarding the above and #32537193 showing him as AKA Tom Moore. I can't answer the question of why, etc. I went back and checked the funeral ledger. The name is listed as "Mr. Tom Moore AKA Neal J. Warren". There were no parents listed. The informant was a Leslie Hall (don't know if this is male or female). Leslie's address was in Moore OK.

Neal/Tom was a WW I & II Vet and also worked for the Santa Fe Railway. No other individuals are listed. It appears Leslie Hall wrote a check on a bank in Moore to pay the balance not covered by VA and RR Retirement funds. So perhaps he/she was his caretaker and would have been on the checking account.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. If you can provide links for his parents I'll be glad to add them (or perhaps I can find them myself).

RE: Walter Scott Heath
Josie's brother you may be referring to could be James Alexander Winchester. James was married to Sarah "Sally" Jane Donnell. The Donnell family is my direct line.

Thank you so much for the information, Obviously I was looking in the wrong county.

I appreciate your help!
