|Bio and Links|
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. |

|Grave Walker||RE: Herbert Rhyne|
You are very welcome for the photo of Herbert Rhyne's stone. Thank you for the kind words about my work! I am happy to be a part of a great group of dedicated volunteers, like yourself, who make this great contribution.
By the way, I did make a memorial for Herbert's wife Bertha while I was out there. If you would like that memorial transferred to you, just let me know and I will do it immediately! It makes sense for you to have both if you want them both.
You are welcome to use any photos that I have taken of your family members.

|prairie plains||RE: Lillian Hoag|
Thank you for the offer but I am not related. I ran across her obituary while searching for something else. I found the obituary interesting ... a female graduate of a university in the early 20th century or before. Her father had died in North Dakota (prob Dakota territory) and her mother moved her & another daughter East to Ithaca, New York. Lillian was educated at Cornell and then taught for a few years. She then became a social worker for the better part of her life in various places in NY before retiring to Penney Farms.
Thank you for your volunteer work!

Great to learn that information I shared has provided a source that will aid you in your work concerning those laid to rest in Nebo Old Presbytarian Church Cemetary.
As for relationship to Jonathan he is my husband's first cousin three time removed.

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

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).

|Judith Nan Lewis||Iva Mourine (Patterson) McDonald|
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,

I currently have a map of most Gardens and will attempt to get to your photo request tomorrow.
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
|Nancy Cornelius||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.
|Connie Wood||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.
