Bio and Links
My interest in genealogy was inspired by my parents who taught me the importance of knowing who your ancestors were and where they were buried. My parents spent years traveling to various states searching through hundreds of cemeteries locating the graves of our ancestors and creating a handwritten record of each grave which they passed to me. My parents instilled a love of history in me and my Dad taught me that death was as great a miracle as birth. My efforts to create a record for my deceased family members is dedicated to my parents and their efforts to locate our loved ones so their children would have an accurate record of our family.
If I may be of assistance to anyone searching for information on any of my relatives I will be happy to share the records and memories I have as well as transfer any records I have created that are not any of my direct family members or in laws. Blessings to all.

RE: Richard Allen photo
I added his death certificate to his page in hopes to help other ancestors that may wonder if he is buried there or not.
Again, thanks for your help.

RE: Richard Allen photo
Thank you so much for all you have done to find out whether he was buried elsewhere. I do have a copy of the death certificate that states he is buried where my gg grandmother is so it is possible funds were lacking to get his stone put up. Again, I do appreciate all your efforts.
Have a blessed day,

RE: Richard Allen photo
Thank you so much for your taking the time in efforts to find my great grandfather's tombstone. It is interesting I now have the same issue on my father's side of the family. I missing another great grandfather's headstone. I wish there was a way to add some sort of memorial stone to his grave. I am glad his name is mentioned on my great grandmother's headstone.
Again, I appreciate trying to solve this mystery.
I hope you and yours have a wonderful New Year.
Kind regards, karen

I completed transfers.
His siblings are attached. The two that are missing are,

Phoebe Simms b. 1883 who married ?? and moved to Akron Ohio many many years ago.

Mary Elizabeth Simms B. 1879 in Marion County KY met and married a high ranking Navy man and moved to California.

If I ever find time to look I will see what I can find.

Keep in touch. if you have any questions, just text me first so I can learn your number .

RE: Russell Simms
If you would like your Frank J Simms transferred to you I would be glad to do it. Also his wife. My Grandmother is Frank Simm's. I am still waiting on edits to be done so all of Frank's siblings will be link to him and other siblings.
I would like to keep Frank's father as that is my great grandfather. But also know that I am 70 years old. I can certainly tell my son that will be doing this after me to transfer Simms to you.

Let me know if you want it transferred.
