Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since the late '70s, when a cousin showed me a 1901 genealogy, "The Descendants of William Wood" in which my late grandmother was mentioned. I like this site and have made an effort to try to locate all the ancestor graves I can. I'm always available to take grave photos in the Twin City area, that is, when they're not under two feet of snow.

Feel free to contact me with additional information or corrections. I will gladly transfer any memorial that I created that is your direct family member and not mine. You may use any pictures I add to memorials.

If I send you a biography or information about any memorial that you manage and you are no longer interested in maintaining that memorial, I will be glad to accept a transfer.

Kathleen Brackeen-Putnam
Sarah Crawford's children
Hello Ken,
I am working to make the connection to Sarah Crawford through her second husband James Brechin. I see that Thomas Poindexter (1733-18XX) is linked here as her son. This would be impossible because both of her husbands were dead by 1722. So a son could not have been born to her in 1733. I think he is her grandson as his mother is described in the memorial, but the contributor for that Find A Grave memorial is no longer living. I'm wondering if you have the ability to correct the link?
Warmest regards,
Kathleen Brackeen-Putnam

Question On Memorial #131262035 (William Knapp)
Hello. Could you share your source information on this person? I see conflicting information elsewhere, in which the William Knapp who was husband to Priscilla Aker was the son of John Knapp and Martha Blois. I'm trying to get a clear picture on whether William is part of my family or not, but with the unclear parentage I am unable to do so.

John Haynes
Hi Ken,

I'm researching John Haynes and read your Find A Grave memorial on him.

What are your sources for this information?

Thank you,

Steven Smith
Smith Descendants
Hi Ken,

My name is Steven Smith. After much research it appears that I am a descendant of James Smith who died 1764. I am looking for another Smith male descendant who would be willing to take a Y-DNA test. It is easy to do and I would gladly pay for it. If someone would like to take the test, he may contact me at under the username: haptock578 and leave a message. You may also review my tree "Smith Holland Family Tree." A membership in is necessary.

Harriett Elizabeth Middaugh
Hi Ken,
Would you happen to know the lineage of Harriett Elizabeth Middaugh? I've been doing some work at South Hill in Ithaca and noticed your Middaughs and reference to their moving to the newly formed Tompkins County. I believe Harriett is among those but have not discovered who her parents were yet. I have her birth year as 1828. Thanks for any leads, Nancy

RE: Barkers in Nayland
Hi Ken, Thanks! I have been able to find some of the transcribed parish records for them, but don't have the book you mentioned. If it's not too much trouble, it would be super if you could email that part to me. If not, no worries, as I think I can get it from NEHGS. I'm at

Barkers in Nayland
Hi Ken,

I see you created some very nice memorials for the Barkers in Nayland, Suffolk, England from the late 1500s. There are references to baptism, marriage, and burial dates, but I haven't been able to locate those records on line, although I have found the wills. Can you point me in the right direction?
