He is listed as living at home with Vincent in Ironto in the 1880 US census. He is buried at Ironto with Vincent. My grandfather was Jay Leonard Vaden (1902-1987). He is buried at Blacksburg, Virginia. I have some documents my mother left me about Peter Vaden. If you would like to contact me please feel free. Thanks.

Hi Charlie. Regarding the Bolin & Abigale Cain family in 1850 Texas, please link them, by all means.

I added Bolin's first wife, Harriet Bridger. So you can link the 1st two to Bolin & Harriet, and the last four, including John, to Abigale. (According to 1900 census, which I haven't yet put into the sources in my own database, John was born Nov 1842, which aligns well with their marriage in Feb 1842.

Hi Charlie

You received a message a couple of weeks ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but we have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.

If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

Many thanks,

Darren :-)

Hi Charlie,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries
