Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family history for over 40 years. Find A Grave has added a new dimension to my family tree. I have added some memorials and, with the help of FAG volunteers, been able to link others and have completely linked my direct line as far back as their physical location is known. I have been able to add pictures to many memorials and have even found new cousins. Thank you FAG volunteers.

RE: Iva Mourine (Patterson) McDonald
Hi Jackie,

I was unable to connect to your tree for some reason.

My GGG-Grandmother, Diannah (Patterson) Lewis (25 Nov 1820 AL - 5 Nov 1881 Marshall Co., AL, is the sister of Spencer Patterson (13 Feb 1816 TN - 8 March 1867 Marshall Co., AL). She married Leonard Len Lewis.

Their sister, Margaret Patterson (1822 TN- Aft 1880 AL) married Leonard Len Lewis' brother, Henry Lewis (Born 1820 TN).

My GGG-Grandmother, Nancy (Starnes) McDonald (09 Aug 1803 Warren/White Co., TN - 27 May 1870 Marshall Co., AL) is the daughter of Peter Starnes (01 June 1781 Chester Co., SC - 13 Apr 1852 Marshall Co., AL) and Mary "Polly" (Roden) Starnes (13 Feb 1781 SC - 04 Oct 1841 Marshall Co., AL).

Peter Starnes (01 June 1781 Chester Co., SC - 13 Apr 1852 Marshall Co., AL) is the son of John Starnes Sr. (1741 Charleston, SC - 1801 Charleston, SC and Temperia (MNU) (1735 Charleston, SC - 1840.

Peter Starnes was the brother of John Starnes, Jr. (1787 Chester Co., SC - 07 Oct 1866 Marshall Co., AL), who was also a son of John Starnes, Sr. and Temperia (MNU).

She was married to James McDonald (17 March 1800 Warren Co., TN - 28 March 1890 Henryville, Marshall Co., AL).

Until Later.... God Bless,

Iva Mourine (Patterson) McDonald
Hi Jacklyn,

Thank you so much for contacting me.

Iva is my 3rd cousin (2x removed) in my Patterson Family Line. I had added her name from an old research paper, and her middle name was spelled that way. I was so happy that you contacted me and let me know of the misspelling.

I corrected the spelling on her memorial.

Until Later.....God Bless,

Shane Quinn
Hi, I'm Shane Albert Quinn of Lake Norman, NC. I'm 26 years old, I saw you said you are related to John Wesley Quinn who I found out tonight via this site is my great-great-great grandfather. His son John Matthew Quinn is my great great grandfather, his son Samuel Sylvanus Quinn is my great grandfather, and his son Grady Albert Quinn is my grandfather. My grandfather Grady Quinn died in 1984 I believe it was. He was a TSGt in the US Air Force and served in Korea & Vietnam. He is buried in San Antonio, Texas. The only Quinns I have ever known are myself, my father Michael Scott Quinn, and my uncle Eric Thomas Quinn. My grandmother was long divorced from my grandfather who remarried before he passed, and she has never been willing to help me out with seeking out any of my Quinn side of the family.

I believe Grady Quinn had 3 brothers, John "Johnny" Quinn, Thomas "Tommy" Quinn, and Robert Quinn. I am pretty sure they all have passed. If you happen to know anything or could help me out with any info, pictures, anything, I would appreciate it. Thanks

Porter Edmondson
Thanks for the information. About the name spelling, I have seen where there is not enough room for the whole name so 1 or 2 letters are left out of a name, causing mass confusion. It is too expensive to have redone so most people just leave it.
My husband's grandmother was a Edmonson, but I know some of her family spelt their name Edmondson. So when I am in a cemetery taking pics I also look for family names. Marcus Edmondson at Beulah in Marshall Co Al is my husband's 3x great grandfather. Thanks again.

RE: Basil Lynn
Actually Basil lived in Greenville SC, and died in NY. HE had asked to go back home. He was born and lived in Amsterdam NY. Then he and his mother moved to Cedar Lane, New York Mills, NY. They moved and lived in Sc 17 years and when he was very ill he asked to go home to NY. They went to the Utica NY area, and within 2 days I believe he passed. He was buried in the NY cemetery. I was 12 when they married and we lived first on Cedar Lane in NY Mills, then Burrstone Rd. in NY Mills. Later we moved to Ballston Spa NY.

So if asked this is the real story.

Basil Arthur Lynn
Hi I was Basil's Stepdaughter. The information you have on him is entirely wrong. His mother was Gertrude Lynn, father Arthur Lynn. Basil's birth cert name was Basil Arthur Orth Lynn.(all from mom as she has the birth records. Dates of his Birth and Death and location of burial are correct but the rest is not Wrong family.

Hope this helps you

Dona J. Queen Alford
Dear Jacklyn, thanks for the information on Dona Alice Queen Jones. You are correct - she is not the same person as Dona J. Queen Alford. I have corrected Find A Grave and information on the Alford American Family Association (AAFA) website. I also took a look into FamilySearch and disconnected Dona Queen Alford from the family of John H. Queen. However, after looking more closely at census records, I suspect Dona Alford must be his niece (a daughter of one of his brothers). Hopefully all of the connections have been unloosed! Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Alicia
