Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am fascinated with genealogy and have 39,000 plus people in my My Heritage gedcom. has been a great place to find information and images to not just add data but to feel closer to my ancestors. I had often wanted to add flowers or contribute information so I joined the site. It has been a joy to add sites and manage sites of ancestors to share their lives with others who are seeking as I was. Thank you to all memorialists who tend to our relatives and ancestors.

RE: Thomas John Baker
Hi Barbara,
Thanks for your message. My records show the correct birth year of Thomas J Baker as 1832. His civil war service records show he was about 30 years old when he enlisted in 1862 in the 9th Kentucky cavalry. Four years before he enlisted, Kentucky birth records for June 15, 1858 show that John Thomas Baker (my great grandfather) was born to parents Thomas J Baker and Frances B Stone of Bear County, Kentucky. I tried to copy the brith record from but was unsuccessful.

Hope this helps.

RE: Marcile Ethel Johnson Baker memorial
My computer doesn't show any notes or notations. I usually don't add "do nots" to anything on Find a Grave. Perhaps you could ask the Find a Grave administration about it. I would love to help but don't see how. Sorry. Candice xo

RE: Marcile Ethel Johnson Baker memorial
Not sure what you are referring to. When I looked at your aunt's memorial page #116476163 I see no reference or note from me. Can you explain? Candice xo

RE: Nathaniel Boynton (1694 - 1757)
Hi Barbara,

If you read my profile, you will understand that I would be happy to link a memorial with an actual grave, but not to 'Burial Unknown'.

I spend about 50 hours per week photographing graves, editing photos, researching the people I find, and creating memorials for them. You would be surprised how often someone finds my memorials, then moves their 'burial unknown' to the cemetery where I found them, then notifies me that I 'duped' them and must delete my work.

I have added a manual link to the Father's memorial and improved the photo for Nathaniel.

Thank you for responding to my e-mail on Find A Grave. I have been working with Arlene and before her death, Neva, so I am aware of your recent DNA findings re: the Wrights. I have done a little work on the Wrights and believe Mary's father was William Wright. I would very much like to meet with you and Arlene sometime. Do you live in the Rockford area and would you be interested in having lunch. I am away for the winter, but will be back in Illinois in mid March.

I noted on Find-A-Grave you are a grandchild of Isaac and Elizabeth Hall Swain as am I. Like you, I have a data base of over 30K on the family identifying ancestors as well as descendants. I descend from David Miles Swain, the steamboat Captain and owner of the foundry in Stillwater, Minnesota where he built over 365 vessels. I am delighted to know you are interested in and taking the time to assure our grandparents are remembered.
Thank you so much for your efforts on their behalf,
