Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi everyone,
What a great site Find-A-Grave is. Ive been doing Genealogy since the 60's and my travels have taken me to many places. I started trying to do my family tree by asking my father if he had information on his (Cross) family. Naturally he said no, but I eventually found a large box with 73 old pictures, some old diaries and papers with brittle paper tape on them and lots of writing.. It was wonderful and I have been filling in the blanks ever since. My grandmother had attempted Genealogy back in the 1800's and gave me many clues on those old papers..
I am a Registered Nurse and since my retirement I'm trying to put whole cemeteries on Find-A-Grave. Many of the Memorials I have submitted are not my relatives. I just thought they might help someone. I am happy to transfer or update any who are not related to me but are related to you.. However please use the Edit button on the Memorial and follow the FAG guidelines for transfers you wish to receive. Some people have not done that and leave off important data so I have not been able to transfer them.
Thanks for creating this site.

I have received several requests for transfers lately that did include your e-mail address and/or membership number. If you will use the edit on the memorial I will receive your membership number. I cannot transfer without it. E. Koepke

Correction: Rhoda Thompson
The only female Thompson I could find in 1852 census that was born in the USA and of the right age to be Lucinda's mom was Rhoda and her husband was born in Ontario.

Rhoda Ann Allen Thompson
Rhoda Ann Allen Thompson
Birth: Dec. 12, 1807
Madri St. Lawrence County
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 8, 1899
Ontario, Canada

You Posted:
Rhoda and James had 14 children. They are Charlotte, Ezra, Lydia, Nathan, Pauline, Robert, Omar, Samuel, pearce, James, Myron. William, George and Edson.

Do you know if one of Rhoda's daughters had a middle name Lucinda. My great grandmother was Lucinda Thompson born 1828 but every census give a different birth year and age pretty much. I don't know who her parents were because Lucinda was married by the time the 1852 census came out. She married my great grandfather Robert Donnelly from Ireland . In the 1891 Census Lucinda says her father was born in Ontario and her mom was born in USA. The only female Thompson I could find in 1852 census and that was Rhoda and her husband was born in Ontario. I thought I'd found Lucinda's parents until I found Rhoda's memorial with a list of her childen. I am wondering if you could have missed any ? Thank you Joan

His gravestone reads that his death is Jan. 31, 1931. You have recorded a different date and it should be changed. He is an ancestor of my daughters on their father's side of the family. Thank you.

Could you check Phllinda Bristols Spouse information Horace Bristol can't be her spouse since he was born in 1876 and she died in 1872. Can you let me know their relationship?

Ernest Victor Schnepp
Eleanor, I can not make the edit part work because of an advertisement in front of it. Anyway, I would like to ask for Ernest's memorial as I can add him and our family back to 1731. I think that is a bit too much to ask you to do. I would very much appreciate it. For the infant, I have no clue who it belongs to but will find out.

By the way, do you have a Barbara Koepke in your family??? I do on a Dittemore tree. Would that not be fun if you knew her. lol
