Bio Photo UPDATE: April 23,2016

I have just come home from the hospital fighting pneumonia. Please be patient as I have a long road back to good health. I Will try and check my messages each day. Thank you.......

Genealogy is a passion of mine from when I was very young. My grandmother told me wonderful stories about our families and I have been doing family history for over 30 years. I have traveled all over the world photographing family graves and writing books on my different families. I need another 25 years to finish everything I have started!

PLEASE do not add birth or death certificates to my memorials!

Yes, I got it at work. Thanks! I was just composing a reply when your message came though on my profile page. I think my wife has had a change of heart about the treatments. At least she says so now. We'll see what happens. I have noticed that her hands tremble more when she does the treatments, but the alternative is worse! I'll send you an e-mail reply in a couple of minutes.

Please keep doing the breathing treatments. To not do so would severely shorten your life. M y wife has steadfastly refused to do the treatments as prescribed for the last 3 years or so... at most she does one per day (and she is supposed to do 3 or 4). As a result, she nearly died this time around. Rehab will take forever and will be all for nothing if she comes home and refuses the treatments again. For some reason this is a common thing among people who are supposed to do these treatments. Please do not allow yourself to slip into that trap!

Major Cemetery, Viewtown VA
Hi Karen. This was going to be the weekend that I went up to the Major cemetery. Things didn't work out that way. My wife went into the hospital for pneumonia in January, then suffered a relapse and is back in there now. This I the 8the day of her stay. Some serious stuff, including dangerous levels of CO2 retention. Anyway, Viewtown and the Major cemetery are still waiting for me to make an appearance. Will do so as soon as I can.

Mary Elizabeth Harrison
I think you will find that Mary Elizabeth Harrison (1811-1899), daughter of Fielding Harrison, married Irwin Blackman RANDLE in 1831 in Madison County, Illinois. Both Irwin and Mary are buried in the Alton Cemetery, Alton, Madison County, Illinois. I too tried following the RANDALL spelling, but on further research, discovered the different spelling. Many thanks for all the work you have done. Many people appreciate your efforts.

John (3rd great grand nephew of Fielding Harrison)
