Bio and Links
After the horrendous earthquake in Haiti recently, I decided to read a book I inherited years ago, but had no interest in until now. (The Black Rebellion in Haiti" by Pierre Etienne Chazotte, and edited by his grandson, Charles W. Platt) When I did some research, I learned that Pierre or Peter, is my 4th great grandfather and Charles W. Platt is my great grandmother's brother. In reading the book I learned that Pierre was one of only a couple of white people who were able to escape the massacre of multiple thousands in 1804, partly because he had American citizenship. The unedited version is in the Library of Congress. In my research, I stumbled onto Find a Grave, and discovered that many kind people had made memorials for a number of my ancestors, for which I'm extremely grateful. Some have become friends and are assisting me in further family searches! Thank you all! Especially my friend in Reno!

Family tranfer
I seem to be slow or inept that I can't make these transfers as you suggested but it could be related to overly worked smart phone at this moment. I will try again. Thank you again for all your time and effort. It has certainly aided me in these beginnings of family research! I hope we may connect again on joint family interests.

David Chambers Mearns
My grandfather was an important member of the Library of Congress family. He was head of the Manuscripts department bringing in notable manuscripts from Somerset Maugm, Thoreau, John Glenn and so many more. He held the Chair of History for many years and also served as the Assistant Librarian of Congress. He wrote many books and was considered a highly respected Lincoln historian having been asked by Robert Lincoln to collate and produce his father's papers which he did. He and Carl Sandburg were not only good friends but collaborated together on several projects.

Mearns
Hi! First I'd like to thank you for all the contributions you've made to members of my family. You've been very helpful. Today's question is a favor request. Part of my family line is with David Mearns and if you could correct the spelling on David and Mildred's memorials and anywhere else it m8ght be, I'd be so grateful. I'd have done that but do not have access to these sites. Again, thank you for all you've done

Alexander Ketcham
Regarding his date of death on May 8, 1850, his obituary corroborates the cemetery records, despite the enumeration date that appears at the top of the 1850 census. Hope that helps.

Mark Gifford
I looked for Mark with the Solomons at Evergreen Cemetery. He is not there. I talked to the cemetery superintendent today. She has no record of him being buried there.

RE: Solomons Clan
You didn't get email from them because it was not a photo request. I just posted it on my own. The 6 graves are all the ones I took and have uploaded: Kenneth, Marion, Amelia, John, Grace, & John Durbrow. Are you interested in the order of the graves from left to right? If so, I can check that for you. I just thought you would like to see the distant picture of where they are buried. so nice on that small hill. They are on the edge. That's why I almost missed them. I was coming from on top of the hill.

RE: Solomons Clan
I will be making at least one more trip. Today was trip #2. I remember where the Solomons were, so I will see if Mark is in that area. I am getting ready to post photos. I will post a distant photo that somewhat shows all 6 graves; albeit the stones are all flat on the ground so hard to see. And will post a close up of each flat stone. They are buried on a small hill by a tree. Can make out some of the stones from that picture. One is on the right of the tree and visible, 2 are kind of hidden by the tree, and the other three on the left are visible. I was so excited when I found them. I almost missed them. I had to dig some out a bit, as you will see, and most were covered with pine needle, sticks, etc.
