A Prayer for Genealogists

Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient road
On which my fathers trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.
--by Curtis Woods
We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted. Each of us contains within ... this inheritance of soul. We are links between the ages, containing past and present expectations, sacred memories, and future promises.

SO much of what is placed on Find A Grave is searchable, but in order to assist others in their research, I also use

Disasters strike us all, and it helps to put family moves into context when they abruptly move, relocate or - frankly - just disappear!

Please take a look, it's an interesting site.
In the eastern United States you can often "discover" old cemeteries by the daffodils.

Daffodils are not a feast for deer, they multiply and spread on their own and were often the flower of choice to plant at grave sites.

And I love the sunny, bright daffodil, reminding me the long winter will soon be over and I can get out again to seek and document ancestors - both my own and for others living too distant to be there in person.

If I have "planted" a daffodil on a memorial, it is one which I have directly touched or made an addition.

My Find A Grave 'anniversary' date is 12 June 2007

Chesnut Family

When you get time I need your thought on this one,

I think it is the same person.

10275356 July 27 1835 - Mar 9 1913 Telitha Jane "Eliza" Durham Chesnut

Me again

I think I got Martha and Patsy put in place in our tree.

Know I am moving on to Ben F Chesnut Sept 15 1904 -
July 9 2004 and his wife Mary Reams .

I found the O bit which I was going to add in Find A Grave but the O bit says Norvell Cemetery and Find A Grave has him listed in Pitsburg Cemetery 149965701

I called mom and she said when she had a warm day she would go to the cemetery and see which one he is in.
We have Mary Reams in our tree in 3 other places with differen men so I have my work cut out for me on this one.

RE: Virginia Berneeker Reynolds

Do you know if anyone might recognize people in old photos? I opened a box of pictures this weekend, and I had made notes back when my Mother was alive, some of the pictures either she didn't know herself but made an educated guess, based upon time periods and people she thought she might recall.

Some where of the Reynolds family she suspected. I can send you an email with some scanned pictures if you think you can ID them?? Or know someone who might ID them?

RE: Virginia Berneeker Reynolds
I know only Reynolds information that is availble on & Familysearch. I would be happy to get you copies if you do not have access to these sites.

On the Bernecker line, I have a little more, mainly because I actually met several of them when I was younger. (Cliff jr & Virginia).

My mother Shirley A. Grabel, (Virginia & Cliff Bernecker's niece) passed away 6 years ago, and my father, Howard W. Tranor passed away January of this year. I have boxes & boxes of old family pictures, letters, cards, etc. All of these heirlooms moved from storage into my garage after dad died, so I am working as fast as I can to look through them but my wife wants me to look faster :)

I am still looking thru many of them, but if I find any Reynolds Pictures at all will be happy to get you a copy.

Let me know if you need information from Ancestry or Family search.

RE: Bertha Lee Dezarn Bowling Find A Grave Memorial# 10275182
The DCert does give her parents as Clarence DeZarn and Susan Hornsby ... AND THAT she is buried at Glen Haven Cemetery in Harrison, OH. This Bertha Bowling IS NOT buried at Rough Creek Cemetery near London, KY. Find A Grave Memorial #141435470 was created by Julie Saylor in Jan 2015 to reflect this fact.

Bertha Lee 'Johnson' Bowling IS BURIED at Rough Creek Cemetery ... her parents = Winfield Scott Johnson (1864-1945) & Charlotte "Lottie" Suttles (1866-1927). They too are buried at Rough Creek.

I saw your Oct 18 note by P Renee T. The child mentioned (Hazel Ellene Sacajawea Bowling) DOES BELONG to Bertha & Charlie Bowling. She was child #6. Their oldest daughter (Almalea "Alma" - 1928-2006) is buried at McDaniel Cemetery near London. She married Willard Booth Steward on Jun 21, 1947. Her Find A Grave Mem # is 131495522.

Winfield Scott Johnson is the s/o Thomas Jefferson Johnson (1840-1926) and Malinda Jane McCowan (1843-1920). I am yet to know for sure who Lottie's parents were. I know she was the sister of Mary Ann "Mag" Suttles who married my great uncle Louis B. Johnson (1854-1920/1) -- the s/o John Emory Johnson (1831-1867) and Mahala Abigail "Halie" Watkins (1834-1908). John Emory is my great grandfather and the s/o William B. Johnson (1812-1890) and Abigail Carrier (1809-1886). William B. was the s/o Aaron Johnson and Susannah "Susan" Young.

RE: Reams Infants
Thank you for your kind reply & thank you for all of your researching. I do 90% of mine on line which is most tricky as one needs to constantly check to see if dates&locations fit. I have just returned from visiting my sis & my bro-in-law had recently received pics & info from a cousin. Also his oldest bro is newly interested in researching & has found some fam records also. I scanned all of this & have it on my laptop. I have a page that was from a printed book on the Reams. I am very sorry to say that the title page is not included so when or who wrote it is not clear. If you would like a copy & would like to send me your email; I would be glad to send it. I am very pleased to see that there are quite a few nice pics on for this family. John R Reams is my bro-in-law's 2G. John R only lost 1son&1dgh as infants; Lucinda has a memorial 136201569. God Bless

Harrod Family in Leavenworth County
Hi Gaye! I saw a note on your memorial Benjamin Harrod and you were looking for the location for Harrod's Ridge and Cemetery.

Depending on what you were looking for I may have some answers for you. First, unfortunately, the Harrod Cemetery is abandoned and the spot is now farmland, whether or not the owners of the land kept the gravestones there or not is hard to say. From an aerial view of the area I can see no definitive cemetery or formation that may resemble markers.

Second, I have a map showing the location of the Ridge and the Cemetery. I can also show you a feel time aerial on both locations.

Let me know what it is specifically you are looking for.

RE: Sarah Emaline Hill Carmichael
Hello Again!
I just wanted to let you know that we dropped off a green folder full of Carmichael, Hill, and some Fleetwood info at the Jackson Co. Library in Seymour this afternoon. They said they would put it all in a 3 ring binder, and eventually would also digitize it and put it online. No timeline on all this, I'm sure, although I'm guessing you could ask to see it before this is done. There are many things included that I've gleaned in my own research, however, the gold in this info has to be the pages from two old Bibles. I am not personally a Carmichael, Hill or Fleetwood. My maiden name is Denney, however, Dolph (Aronal Randolph) Carmichael, the youngest child of John Wm Carmichael & Amanda Ann "Kate" Fleetwood, was my father's step-father. When I found this info when we had to sell our parent's home, I knew I couldn't keep it to myself. Dolph was just a name to me growing up. It has been interesting putting his family together and seeing a bigger picture. I hope this is helpful to you and others searching for info on these families.
