Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have spent many years researching my ancestors. Surnames connected to my father's line: Halterman,Myers,Shanks,Barnes,Baker,Petticord,Floyd,Cox,Robinson, Barnett,Glass,Evans and Huff from OH, PA, MD

Surnames connected to my mother's line are: Greene,Green,Watson,Sherrill,Carlton,Livingston, Marley,Ferguson,Wallace,White,Triplett,Laws, McKee,Allison,Durham,Bailey,Lowrance,Bray, Hodges,and Hamby from North Carolina. My third great grandmother in NC is believed to be a full blood Cherokee. Perhaps DNA will prove it.

I only enter and manage memorials that are of my family, ancestors & close friends. Please respect my request to manage Find A Grave memorials of my ancestors entered by someone with no family connection. I have met some very nice people who will transfer a cousin or ancestor that does not meet the FAG guide lines, and some members who are in no way connected but will not part with the management of a memorial that they made.

If you do not want to transfer a memorial when asked, do not send me mail about the FAG guidelines. I have read them and I think the relationship does not go far enough. If it is a cousin that you can add information about it will be helpful to anyone working on genealogy. If you know nothing about the person please transfer as requested.

The Schupp's from Germany adopted my Baker grandmother and therefore I entered memorials for all the Schupp's connected to her adopted family.

Many NC families migrated to Coshocton County, Ohio starting in 1920 and continued through the 1930's. Most (if not all), are connected to my NC ancestors. I will make memorials for those who lived, had children, and died here. I have known many of these people since I was a child.

WHEN I ADD A FAMILY PICTURE TO THE MEMORIALS, DO NOT COPY THEM WITHOUT MY APPROVAL. IN NO WAY ARE THEY TO BE COPIED AND USED ON ANY INTERNET GENEALOGY SITE. I have found copies of my pictures on and GENI genealogy sites that were taken without my permission. Any member of Find A Grave that does not honor this restriction will be tracked down and reported.

I recently found some of my entire Find A Grave memorials copied and put on GENI and Rootsweb. The FAG memorials are managed only by me and when copied and added to other websites, I cannot change or delete them. This must be stopped.

Do you know that Find A Grave genealogy and pictures are now part of If you did not want your information spread around everywhere it is too late. This included copyrighted family pictures. You have to pay for information including what was yours.

I also follow the Federal Law at 17 U.S.C 107 about copying information and pictures and using them for other than personal use.

It is OK to copy pictures of grave stones. Thanks

RE: You asked a question
I bring this up because you have that Jane Feters Carlton's memorial that says, "Jane had children by William Walker before she married George Carlton."
Then you have Martha (Mattie)'s memorial that says "Martha's first marriage was to William Walker in 1891 and they had a son and a daughter."
I was just wondering if they are the same William Walker, and if so who are the children that were born to William and Jane? I have that William and Mattie were married in 1891 and had Bertha and Robert, whom were both adopted by George Washington Carlton.
Hopefully this makes more sense.

Cherokee Cousin
Thank you Sherlock! And yes, that does make us Cherokee Cousins for sure..... I don't like those people who charge for research. I understand that it takes time, but at the same time, I don't believe someone should have to "pay" to find out who their ancestors are. That is the main reason I am not a member of The only information you find on there is what others have posted. I have a good friend in Nashville and she didn't want to bother me researching her family. She paid $1,500 and the researcher, who she hired from, found her family back to her great grandfather. The last time I was in Nashville, I researched for her for about 30 minutes found her family back to her 3x great grandfather. It excited her that I was able to find so much information in a short time and mad at ancestry because their researcher couldn't find much for $1,500. I use It's free and they have all the information that ancestry has. I used to transcribe records for familysearch because they don't charge people for their information. Anyway, good luck in your research. It's nice to find a "Cherokee Cousin" out there!

RE: Janice Green McCosh
Transfer made... I'm glad I was of some help to you through Findagrave. I saw in your bio that your 3x great grandmother is Cherokee. My 3x great grandmother is also Cherokee. Her memorial number is 46732617. She was taken in by the Isaac White family after her parents died. She is the 2nd one on the left. Her daughter is behind her (my great grandmother) and my grandmother to the left of my great grandmother. We don't really know anything else about her. Anyway, if you find any other memorials that I have who are your ancestors, just let me know.

ok i see now
yes looks like we must be family and maybe your a howden also maybe my missing uncle

Sorry Irish genealogy is hard but we bought a Howden book i think in 97 been trying to get there for awhile and yes the James and William. I got from what you could find on the different sites i think was after all if i go to the genealogy society here in town first thing they do is put me on a computer and show me my own things. have had a couple people offer help but dissipated the howden side of the family seems secretive heck had to figure out my own great grandpa and most family myself. We bought the books but it was a directory of like all the Howdens didnt say which was actually our own family so took awhile. Sorry i didnt get through the Hard Ireland things till years after 2014 when i got on here, You expected me to figure that out and correct everyones mistakes with my first year or 2 on Howden. If they are my family i have as much right to research them as you do the reason to sometimes spread out is to make it easier to research people you cant find. Many of the families last names like you got fall other places in the family heck i got Hinshaws on dads and moms side. Yates on dads and moms side looks like maybe Hunts think hunts were webster side. Last time i was at the genealogy place i had to have them enter info on my side of eberhardts and howdens because there wasnt any inserted besides what was already online. Thank if you had helped somehow for your research but i wasnt using find a grave to do research i was using sites that brought me here as for geni i referenced whatever in there source box and when you do that it shows the whole page if by some chance i got yours who knows maybe i did, as far as i know i have never found james howden or william howden on find a grave

RE: Fred Wyler tombstone
I LOVE going up there & I ALWAYS take pics of the Sky & Clouds & Farms & Valleys way in the distance....Beautiful.....People in these BIG CITIES don't know what they are missing out on !!!! I never was up there as much as I am now since I volunteered for Find A Grave....I have known a lot of the people that are buried there or, @ least, their family name......Yes, they take VERY GOOD care of that lady was mowing it, but she is not able now, so another younger lady is doing it & she is very good about it...Everyone is proud on their Little Country Cemetery ON THE HILLTOP ~~~~~

RE: Fred Wyler tombstone
Yes, their stone looks new...It's one of those new shiny ones....You can tell after looking @ so many of them.....The cem. isn't that big, that you would have seen it, I think.....Was there a church there with the cem. ??? I never thought about that....I'm looking in the White Eyes Twp. Cem. book I have & there are a lot of churches listed for that area, but I don't see any that says it was up there......The Genealogical Society of Coshocton Co. really did a good job with that book as they had someone give them a lot of info & pics & it came out really nice.....lot of extra info that other books do not have....old, old pics....I'll have to ask around about a church being up there.....My bro. & I were raised in the Fresno area on a farm, so that feels like home to us. Bro. still lives up there....Are you from there ?? Can't tell by your "Sherlock" name !!!!
