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: Rachel Ferguson, William Moore
I just looked at the 1810 census, and, with the understanding that Rachel Ferguson was born in 1796, only Thomas Ferguson, Richard Ferguson, and Joseph Ferguson of Wilkes County, have daughters whose ages fit into the proper category. Rachel ends up on the 1860 Henderson County, Tennessee census, living in the household of her son Edward Moore.

Rachel Ferguson, William Moore
My direct ancestors were William Moore and Rachel Ferguson, who were married in 1815, in Wilkes County, North Carolina. I am trying to find the parents of Rachel. Do you have any ideas?

Thank you;
John Cook

Send an Email to F-A-G administrators & tell them & hopefully in a month or 2 or 3 they will take care of it.....depends on who receives the time I sent a message & told them everything like we are having problems with & the person that got it, told me to try exactly what I had told her I already had done.......

RE: Memorial 121107754

Thanks for your information, I wasn’t sure of this. I was only updating info on Don Shelby, my father’s cousin and I guess Les decided to transfer managemen6. That was fine, I have no problem with that. I can remove Jean’s memorial if she’s still alive. If you can verify this I would appreciate it.

RE: Memorial 153362942
Thank you for adding information to Martha J. Robison's gravestone memorial in Sams Cemetery on Find A Grave. I've transferred her memorial to you. A few years ago I went to Sams Cemetery and took photos of all the stones I could find. Sorry that I couldn't find Adam Robinson's stone.

RE: Robinson connection?
Hi - Regarding the Robinson connection. Actually I am not related to the Robinson line. Sharlotte Hughes's husband was first married to Rebecca Hardman (and Rebecca's father was my 5th great grandfather.) Several years ago, I did a lot of research in that cemetery - pulling records on any of my relatives buried there, and did my best to connect other relatives together that I was able to figure out. I have updated Sharlotte's bio as you requested, but did leave it spelled with an "S" as it is on her tombstone. But if you want to have this account transferred to you, that is fine with me - just can't remember how to do that. Do you have to send me a request to transfer?

Cause of death
Sherlock, I usually don't add cause of death to a F=G memorial. I find them more appropriate for ancestry. But in this case, since it was long ago, I'll make an exception.
