Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a wife, mother, and grandmother.

My passions in life are my family, genealogy,
gardening,and writing.

I started climbing my family tree when I was twelve, and haven't stopped yet!

I have enjoyed taking some "roots vacations" to
Illinois and Pennsylvania. Genealogy naturally leads you to the world of history. I enjoy American History very much.

Many of my ancestors came to America for religious reasons. I have traced them through
just about every war that America has taken part in.

"Turning Hearts" comes from the last verse in The Old Testament, Malachi 4: 6. is one of my very favorite websites.


It is a second death after you are forgotten.
How many generations does it take, even in a close knit family, for the fabric to unravel....?
Albert Lewis, Jewish Rabbi

"And death hath come upon our fathers; nevertheless we know then, for a Book of Remembrance we have written among us, according to the pattern of God." Moses 6: 45-46

"It isn't the date on either end that counts
But how they used their dash
For that dash between the dates
Represent the time they spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved them know
What that little line is worth."
William Elliot Dudley

Those we love, don't go away
They walk beside us every day
Unseen, unheard, but always near
--Still loved, still missed and
Very dear.

Cancer is so limited..
It cannot cripple Love
It cannot shatter Hope
It cannot corrode Faith
It cannot destroy Peace
It cannot kill Friendship
It cannot suppress Memories
It cannot silence Courage
It cannot invade the Soul
It cannot steal Eternal Life
It cannot conquer the Spirit
Cancer is so limited!

RE: Robert Pollock 1829
The bio was from a family book. Can you provide a source on the marriage date so I can make a notation at the bottom of the bio? Thank you.
I also added his death date since someone added the headstone photo since the memorial was created. Thanks for your input. Every bit helps.

RE: Thomas Brown
I wasn't real happy with the picture so I went back and got another. Also got good pics of Elizabeth and Amanda, along with others on the same stone.

RE: Sarah Thompson
You're very welcome and, yes indeed, it is a beautiful stone and quite well preserved for a 130 old marble stone. /Bill

I'm sorry, but it's wrong. I have the correct parents listed on his memorial. The grave marker photo I took was way back in the 80's, before Eleanor passed away. I don't think I'll make it back to NY state in the near future.
