Bio and Links
Bio Photo I maintain memorials only for persons to whom I am related and a very few close friends.


8th Great-grandparents: William Layton and Violet Blackman

3rd Great-grandparents: James Thomas McCord and wife Martha Burch

2nd Great-grandparents: George W Kerfoot and wife Dorcas M Trout

2nd Great-grandparents: William Elliott and wife Mary Davis

Will also work on maternal lines of: Trout, Dilts, Throckmorton, Stillwell and many others.

And paternal lines of: Wynn, Holzinger, Costello, Smith.

I have considerable information on many lines and am eager to share what I know since, after all, that is the purpose of compiling a genealogy. I will not, however, share my GED file.

Hi John,

We haven't spoken in a while, but I was wondering if you/your family has done any work with DAR? I know you've done a lot with the family, so am hoping you have.

Thank you!

RE: Dorothy Ellliott Elkins
The man in the office looked Dorothy up in the Graves without markers and she was not listed.

RE: Costello - Barrett
Mary Ellen Barrett's grave location is Blk-M/E Rg. 1 Lot 35 Grave 1

Bridget Barrett's grave location is Blk-M/E Rg. 1 Lot 35 Grave 2/2

Neither grave has a headstone.

These ladies are buried on the same plot as their parents.

James Grave 2 same location

Ellen Grave 3 same location

RE: Josiah Sampson
Thank you. I should have told you to select Advanced Search and enter Sampson Jubilee, 1895. If you still can't locate it, let me know.

I already submitted the edits, should be under edit for your management of memorials.
Richar Hill Sampson # 20352380
Jane Marshal nee Heath Sampson # 20352358

I'm not related. Asked as many of the Sampson migrated to Seward County, NE.
The Seward Memorial Library has Digitized Newspapers Online, under Read:

I found an interesting article on the Sampson line in the Blue Valley Blade, Seward, NE, January 9, 1895 issue: Sampson Jubilee. The seven surviving siblings, children of the above parents, had a reunion. Lot of detail on the children, which is good for locating daughter's married names. The article mentions in the last paragraph that a "combined photo" was taken. I don't know if the Seward County Historical Society has it on file.

William Elliott 1806-1870 (my 3x GG)
Hi John,

Its been a long time since weve talked but I have a question concerning the Elliotts --

I have a DNA match for someone whose tree shows William Elliott's father as William (1778-1840) and his father as William (1750-1807).

I do not go back that far and am wondering if you agree with that information. If you could let me know I would appreciate it. Thank you.
