Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family history, gathering data, traveling and taking pictures of their headstones for over 20 years. I have a complete line of the Needhams,Croshaws and Knerr's from my father all the way to our Mayflower ancestor Edward Fuller. We have over 26 Revolutionary War patriots, I have several of their headstone pictures, wished I had them all but some of their headstones are no longer standing. I still have a lot of work to do - everyday I find another piece of our family puzzle.

RE: Kneers
Hi Elizabeth,

I want to find out if I have a Mayflower connection. If your great grandmother is a Knerr,
is she related to any of the Knerrs I wrote to

Thanks very much for your reply to my query.

Hi Elizabeth,

Do your Kneers go back to the Mayflower? Mine start with Catharina b. 1806 Lehigh, PA, married to John Kehler, John 1772 Lehigh, John 1747 Lehigh, Abraham 1716 Zweibrucken,Germany, Johann Adam 1693 Walshausen, Germany, Johann Nikolaus 1642 Solothurn, Germany, and Theodor 1618 Solothurn, Germany. I guess I went back further from the Mayflower! Abraham was the first one who came to America. He came to Lehigh, PA.

I have quite a number of Revolutionary War patriots also I hope you keep finding pieces of your family puzzle!

Best wishes, Mary Lou

William Hughes

There are two different William Hughes 1753 - 1833. One was born in Virginia and died in North Carolina (The North Carolina William). The other was born in North Carolina and died in Alabama. (The Alabama William). You have mistakenly posted a picture of the Alabama William's tombstone to the find-a-grave webpage of the North Carolina William. Please remove your picture.

Houtz Family
I am working on a DAR application for John Christian Houtz son of Philip Lorentz Hautz and am looking for physical proof of the facts that you are giving on find a grave. I am also interested in any proof that you might have on John Christian Houtz m Barbara Emmert and their son Jacob Houtz.

While Philip Lorentz Hautz has been approved by DAR - John Christian Houtz will be a NEW Patriot and I would really like to prove this line so that John Christian will also receive the recognition that he deserves.

Please contact me at so that we can compare notes.

William Hughes
I believe this tombstone to be a memorial. The actual gravesite is
Cleveland County, NC

This cemetery is located kind of behind the Cleveland Memorial Cemetery. It is
south of highway NC-150 about one mile east of Boiling Springs, NC. The
cemetery is about 250 yards off the east side of a farm road at a point .7
mile off highway NC-150. It appears to be about one acre in size with most of
the graves marked with fieldstones, some of which have initials cut into them
and can still be read.

W. H. died 1833 or 8

J. B. D. C. 1847

T. B. died November 29, 1835

S. B. D. C. 60y,2m,20d February 5, 1849

Blanton, E. B. February 1868

Winn, S. J.

Blanton, J. A. died September 11, 1874

Blanton, Malinda 67 years January 20, 1897

William Hughes
The tombstone for William Hughes seems recent. What can you tell me about it? Where exactly is the grave located? Does this tombstone mark the actual grave or is it a memorial?

Hoping you are still active here. I could use some information and documentation regarding the Knerr family if you have it and are willing to share. Contact me at please.

RE: #60343851
Hello Elizabeth,
I do not announce my genealogical connections on my memorials for a variety of reasons. My relative connection to either of these memorials is moot, as they are both out side the "Family First" guidelines set by Find A Grave. I do not transfer to any "Special Groups" or "Organizations". I feel family takes priority over all things. I link and make connections as time permits. If you have other family members to connect, please do, if you need a connection to parents, I'll gladly do so, permitting they are correct.

RE: Jesse Roweley
Hi Elizabeth,

Yes they are my direct line. Jesse and Sarah are my fifth great grandparents. My line comes down from their daughter Jemima.
