Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello! I have been working on my family genealogy/history for a number of years (!!) and would like to thank all those who have made contributions to Find A Grave....I finally got around to making contributions, at first involving mostly my 'immediate' family (450 memorials by now), but now mostly non-family.

Paternal ancestor surnames include: Wesley, Taylor, Randolph, Wilson, Huff, Craig, Smiley, Higgins, Pierce, Simpson, Thompson, Walker, Goodall, Campbell, Carson, Downing, Minor, Ford, Aiken, Hampton, Amend, McMillan, McCollum, Trumbo, Custer, Brown, Sutherland & Hale.
Maternal ancestor names include: Garden, Spreng, Baird, Coble, Horner, Merckle, Young, Stoner, Matthews, Barrett, Clark, Holsworth, Witten, Brandenberry, Murdock, Streeter, Knosp, Faber & Wells.

Ancestry includes English, Scottish, Irish, French-Speaking Germans and German-Speaking Germans.

The current Findagrave project on which I have been heavily involved, with other contributors, is to create a complete listing of the burials of the Stafford (Kansas) Cemetery. Most of the names are established already. Now we are making links and adding marker photos and obituaries/biographies to the memorials. Making excellent progress.....!!

Hi there,

Please take another look at the headstone photo for William H. Black FindAGrave memorial #9551598. I have records indicating his birth date as 1833 and not 1838 as you have listed. I looked very closely at the photograph, and indeed it reads 1833. After you verify, could you please correct it?

Thank you,
Wayne Gunder

Wallace Wesley
Hi, I live in Eubank and noticed your request for a pic of Wallace Wesley. Do you have any dates? Or maybe other family members where I can locate the grave faster? I would love to help you have a pic of the grave site.

Re: William Stepanian at Valhalla Cemetery
Hi Richard,

My friend (USC Girl) and I have searched the entirety of Valhalla Cemetery 4 times and have not found William Stepanian. Would you please call the office and verify he has a headstone and the exact location of his burial? Without this information he may never be found. This is a very poorly maintained cemetery. I had to have a headstone for another requester dug out from under 3" of grass a few days ago.

If he does not have a headstone, but you would like a picture of the area and gps coordinates I'm happy to do that for you.

Are you sure this is the daughter of Charles & Pearl Mann. I am researching my husband's Atkins line. Pearl Bayer, sometimes spelled Beyer, married Carl C Mann. Pearl dies in 1916. Two of her children are with her parents in 1920 census. Elva is not listed. In 1920 census there is an Elva Mann born in 1905-6 listed with her parents, Osmer Stacy and Ida Mann, living in Cincinnati. This Elva marries Raymond L. Taylor.
Elva, daughter of Pearl, also marries a Raymond Taylor in 1921 and has son in, Robert E. in 1922. I believe her Raymond, is Raymond Ellsworth Taylor, but I'm not certain about anything.
Please let me know how you determined Elva Mann Taylor, listed above is the daughter of Charles and Pearl Mann.
Thank you for all the time and effort you have given to It is much appreciated.

Susannah Dye Wesley
Mr. Wesley: I can't help but wonder of your memorial(#140351940) is not a duplicate of a memorial Created by: D & L
Record added: Oct 18, 2006
Find A Grave Memorial# 16232270?
The research I have done shows that Susannah (Susan) Dye was married 2X - #1) Green B. Wesley 18 MAR 1866 in Pulaski Co., KY & #2) John C. Dick, 6 APR 1892 in Pulaski Co., KY.
Thank you for considering this question as the Wesley family & my Dye family are intertwined in Kentucky.

Hi Richard...Just checking in to see if you're OK and if you are still adding memorials from Casey County, Ky. I'm still looking for Joshua F. Taylor. He may be in Pulaski Co. and is probably in an unmarked grave. I just can't give up on him. HA! Keep in touch....Margaret
