Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please feel free to use any of the information I have posted on this website including photographs.

I will transfer memorials to anyone with a closer relationship or greater interest in any of the memorials that I manage. I appreciate receiving corrections and information which I'm happy to add.

If you have photos related to any of these memorials, please add them - and drop me a line to let me know - as far as I can tell, findagrave doesn't have a feature to let you know when someone has added anything to a memorial you manage, it would be nice if they did.

I'm interested in many families including: Speckman, Brogan, Smith - all from Ireland; Hake originally Höck from Germany; Spaulding, Beach, Doolittle and Prescott along with many other early New England families and Icelanders in and out of Iceland.

RE: Edward & Lois Bynon
You are most welcome. The Bynon graves actually had a lucky escape, as that beautiful tree behind them is not really a tree but a large branch that broke from the tree off to the right, falling an damaging a number of markers behind the Bynon ones.

If you have the FG numbers of his parents, I'd be happy to connect them, or to add a reference to his gr-grandparents & gr-uncle on his bio. Also, if you'd like me to transfer one or both, please let me know.

Hi again Bob and thanks for adding Elmo's obit. to his memorial. I was reading the obit. again and wonder if "Grandfather Thompson" might be referring to Luther's grandfather, not Elmo's. Just a thought. Many Blessings, Kathie

RE: Earl Duniway Stearns #6918087
Thanks for the info. It's fascinating (and more than a little, confusing) how we are all related. I'd like to learn more about Ella's father, Joseph (I think) Stoughton's pioneering adventures in the Northwest. It would be nice to find his gravesite and also to know where he came from; the name Stoughton, is quite prominent and common throughout New England. I understanding Ella left extensive diaries but I haven't been able to access them being such a long way away.

Earl Duniway Stearns #6918087
Thank you soooooo much for posting the delightful photo of Earl and Sport. Where did you find it? In some effects of the Scott-Duniway family? Earl’s father, an ancestral cousin of my husband, was a 19-year-old Vermont Sharpshooter in the Civil War; he turned medic and then prisoner-of-war. He was released from prison when his 3-yr enlistment was up, but did not return home to Vermont as expected. He kept on trying to fix the catastrophic injury being done by the war. After the war officially ended, he and Emeline Gilham from Fredricksburg married and lived in Washington D.C. They had two sons. When Emeline was compelled to return with their sons to Fredricksburg to be with her widowed mother, Doran left; he was westward bound, out of the fire still smoldering in Fredricksburg, —finally ending up in Abigail Scott-Duniway’s frying pan. Will it be OK for me to share the photo with other relatives?

RE: John Lee Jackson
Bob: Also, his mother's maiden surname was Cravens. I'm descended from John Lee's older sister Malinda Jane. Did John Lee's death certificate list his father as John Lee Jackson, Sr.? I'm wondering since the older John's Civil War record lists him as John M. Jackson. Lastly, thank you for creating this record for the younger John since I didn't know he had moved to Iowa. Rich

Thank you again,
