John Louis Akard commented on person Mary Swanson (born Graves) :
 I see you have Graves in your tree. There is a rather interesting Web Site at URL

http://www.gravesfa.org/gen169.htm

That covers most of the Graves family out of Virginia. There are dozens of different trees listed on this site. I directed you to the one that had a Capt. Thomas Graves who was a Gentleman/Adventurer and founder of the Jamestown Colony. Scroll down to the bottom of the page (pull the slider down, there are about 300 screens of text here). There are 126 sources listed. Go up 3 screens and click on Return To Main Page. If you can't find Graves ancestors here, they might not exist. 
John Louis Akard commented on person Bernice Estelle Harris (born Chapman [Hatfield]) :
 You ask if I'm related. I have Martindales from Greene Co., IN in my tree. Livena seems to have been the only Martindale in your tree before I added Eathen. This needs more research though. 
John Louis Akard commented on person Eathen Emery Martindale :
 Besides all the changes to your site for Hervey and his wives and their families I've done, there are many additions and corrections to their Find a Grave Memorials. In a few cases, I even found corrections for their listings on Family Search, an LDS site. Eathen's Family Search listing shows his parents and two brothers. Interesting to note, Eathen married Livena on his 25th birthday. Since I got married on my 37th birthday, I feel an affinity to him.

Sam Harris commented on person Bernice Estelle Harris (born Chapman [Hatfield]) :
 John,
Are you related to me or any of my members in my GEDCOM? I have no one in my family even remotely interested in my genealogy work. If you have ever been to the McCormick's Creek Park down by Mitchell you will find the ancestral home of John Allen. John was my 3rd great grandfather. The home (a colonial style house built about 1820 just East of the Pinhook Cemetery. The cemetery stated about 1805 after Jesse Allen's good friend, David Beck's son died of cholera and was buried in the ground just to the outside of the Church of Christ. Jesse Allen gave the land for the church building and cemetery. The Beaver family furnished the building material which consisted of huge logs and plained wood.
John Allen, died at the age of 83 while trying to break the spirit of a wild mustang. The horse got angry, jumped into the air and turned his body so as to crush my grandfather. Doctors were called and all agreed he would never walk again. His leg was crushed into little pieces. Within 3 week he was dead of blood poisoning. His cemetery is 2 miles south on the top of a hill. The property is still owned by family descendant's. All of the occupants buried in Pinhook Cemetery are related to me.
The recently discover that Jimmy Allen of Greencastle is the direct brother and also a relative of John's Son, Daughters, Wife and cousins has been very exhilarating. It only took me 20 years for the information to be confirmed. I don't hold much truth in unsubstantial information.

John Louis Akard commented on person Bernice Estelle Harris (born Chapman [Hatfield]) :
 In his marriage license application in 1948, he listed 3 divorces; 1926, which I would say was Elizabeth, 1936, which would be unknown at this time, 1944, which should be Bernice. Four years later he married Lavina in 1948. Was the daughter he missed the Edith mentioned in the 1948 marriage license as 5 years old. That would put her born 1943 or so. Before the 1944 divorce. It said he did not support Edith.

You would do well to include these comments, edited in narrative form in Hervey's Biography on his Profile. It would appear that Herb told you a few things about his life. You need to get them recorded for your tree. We lose so much of our oral history because no one thought to set it down for history. 
Sam Harris commented on person Bernice Estelle Harris (born Chapman [Hatfield]) :
 John,
Thanks for doing the research! Herb wasn't married to Bernice very long. Herb said she was a religious "nut." She thought God controlled every aspect of every thing a person did or was done to them. If something good happened then God did it. If something bad happened then Herb was a sinner and he needed to straighten up. They had a daughter that Herb always missed.
