Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I first started looking for family a number of years ago now; I had no idea who my family was or where they came from other then Kentucky. I told people when they asked that were were just American Mutts. What a group of mutts they turned out to be. Most of my ancestors were here well before the American Revolution. While their name's rarely appear in the history books, they were part of the founders that helped shape the USA that we live in today. Or maybe they are in some of the history books, if you know where to look.
Much of my research is from the kindness of others. I try to list my sources and give credit where it is due. If I miss someone, please let me know and I will give you credit.
Many of our ancestors graves have been lost over time and many the old records are now gone. I try and include to the best of my ability where our family is likely to be buried and who they are related to.

Mistakes can and do happen. For that reason, I am always open for helpful corrections, additional information and transfer requests. Please use the "Edit" tab then "Suggest a Correction" tab on the memorial pages or contact me directly.
As for me; I was born in Eastern Washington State, lived in Arizona for a number of years and now reside in Western Montana.
I am a descendant of Peter and Dority Hart (ca 1740) Grayson CO VA/Ashe CO NC, Peter Winne that arrived in Albany NY from Holland about 1650, several Winthrope Fleet members. Last but not least a number of Palintine Germans, English Scots and Irish with far too many names to list here.

I ask a simple request of other members. Please do not use your Bio to post Find A Grave guidelines that are already covered on this site under "Help with Find A Grave" FAQs. Nobody posts rules, regulations and terms of service for a web site on a grave biography. Why do so on your own bio? A bio is supposed to be about a person, not about rules and guidelines.

Thank you to Find A Grave for letting me post family information and all of the hard work posted by it's members. No one person can do all of this by themselves.

Hi, Wes.

It has been a while cousin. Thanks for the birth county for Aaron. Would you mind sended me a copy of where you found the information, so I can keep it in my files? I try to have all the details, no matter how minute, on my memorials backed by a document of some sort. It has saved my bacon more than once.

How have you been and have the fires dyed down in your area? Ours are finally out...I think. This summer was the smokiest I can remember, it just did not end. When I was a kid they used to burn off the fields and they still do, but it is heavily regulated. But, it was never anything like this. We also got inundated with every thing coming down from Canada, too.

Pull me up, I am working on Stephen B. Sexton and his family. I have been working today on adding sites for them. Hopefully someone out there has more information on them, that they are willing to share.

Take care and have a great evening,

Your long distant cousin,

Sexton Family Seeker

RE: Hart Family
The only thing I can tell you is that in our Family Bible my 3rd grt grandmother past down, and the Bible dates back to the Orange Co. North Carolina Hart Family listing James Hart and Rebecca Finney, James Hart being son of Thomas Hart and Esther Miles, I took the information from the Bible, showing that our family came from John Hart who came as a Quaker from Taunton oxfordshire england.
I Know that Thomas Hart Sr. had a son Thomas Hart Jr.born 1679 in Virginia So I don't know what else I can tell you.
I know there were Hart's that settled in Connecticut and I always thought they came later that Our Harts.I know that Thomas Hart aka as the Colonial 's father was also Thomas Hart Sr. born 24 July 1605 and he and had married Mary Page who was born in London England. This Thomas Hart came first and from I gather settled in Connecticut later after living in Virginia.
My Grandfathers fortunately left wills naming sons and their wives, and children.
I learned that whatever the Century was there were children and heads of families who tend to name their children the popular names and that is where the problem lies.

Hart Family
John Hart father of Thomas Hart, disbanded from the quaker faith. However The sons, James, Peter, and Thomas Jr. went to Orange co North Carolina, and Samuel Hart, my 4th grt grandfather left Orange Co North Carolina, and joined the wagon train trek to Warren Co Georgia, and later went to Richmond co Georgia where he died. Esther of course joined the quakers, as she had my 3rd grt grandfather Isaac,and several children. She remarried to Amos Greene and had children by him. She later moved to I believe Michigan to be near her children, where she died.
I do know there is some confusing issues, but along with mr. Dixon, who did extensive travels and research he helped clarify a little more passed the Christopher Hart lineage

RE: Mackey Cemetery
In you first message you had said James and meant John T. I had thought you might have had James. Then I thought about it and figured you meant John T. That is why i asked about James. I did find a birth record for James.

Crounse Family
Hello Wes,

I have information about the Crounse family. My paternal line, the Bab's(Bobb-American version) from a few miles north of Stuttgart Germany married a Grunzy(the German version of Crounse). This would be Maria Barbara and Melchior Yenner(Jenner- german version). I would love to compare notes if you are related to them.
