RE: James Skidmore #151195551
Hi Pat, Thanks for the information. I added your suggestion in the bio section of James' memorial. I don't know if the second wife that you mention has a memorial on Findagrave or not, as the names of spouses and children in purple are links to their memorial pages on Findagrave. If she does, I think you can add it through the EDIT button. If I should need to approve it after you do that, I will. I also added your name to the info so that if someone asks me where it came from, I'd have some idea, as I don't know his ancestry. Thanks again for the info.

Parents of Jane Daniel Calhoun #170643490

These are the Daniel family names that I have from Middlesex County, VA.

James Daniel 1709-1761

Mary Daniel 1713-1766

I have completed the Big Y test on my Daniel DNA and do not have haplogroup connection to other Daniel Families. My Daniel name was changed about 1776 from Donnell or Donnall.

Parents of Jane Daniel Calhoun #170643490
Thanks for the clarification. James Daniel and his brother John Daniel both have daughters by the name of Jane born about the same time in the same place. I made the mistake in combining both daughters in one. Jane daughter of James Daniel apparently never married and was living in her parents home in 1821 when James Daniel make his will. I can not find any information about Jane. If you have additional information about Jane Daniel please let me know.
You mentioned that you have Daniel family in Middlesex, VA. I have some Daniel individuals in my family tree from that same area but they are more in-laws.

RE: William Loudenback #35326676
William Loudenback is buried is Ohio. While there is no tombstone with his first name, there is a large Loudenback monument. He is listed as being buried in the cemetery records on November 6, 1911. He is next to his brother Abraham. I found his obit which also lists his burial in Oak Dale Cemetery. His Ohio death certificate lists his burial as Urbana, OH. I hope this helps to clear up the confusion.

80 year old thing
Hey Pat,
Don't let that (80 year old thing) slow you down.
One of my Co-Partners near Ogden Utah is 83. She has piles of obits from the 1950's and onward. She loads the folks, then I come along later in a full photographic sweep of a cemetery. We're in the final stages of a 6000 soul cemetery right now. Keep them fingers typing-You'll live forever!

RE: Isaac Henry York, #138657610
Thanks Pat your contact.

Isaac Henry York is a 4th Great Grandfather of mine. The other creator is Tammy York Orman who has fraudulently claimed kin to the Jeremiah York descendants of whom Isaac Henry York is a descendant. I have had numerous email contacts with Tammy who is very uncooperative, rude, argumentative and refuses to make corrections to her many errors. Read the negative attitude on her Bio. She often goes off line for long periods of time and frequently refuses to answer or accept any edits.

Tammy apparently is more interested in just posting tombstone photos with minimum bios with too few correct relationships. Most often she posts incorrect data she apparently acquires from the internet unverified. According to YDNA testing she is from an entirely different genetic York family. Her York family is from the Baltimore Maryland in 1660. Tammy has no connection with the Jeremiah York family all the way back to England. So to progress with his multiple families I have had to create an accurate Find A Grave memorial for Isaac Henry York to properly honor him.
