Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history for over 30 years and this is an absolute passion :)

Primary surnames are McCluskey, Curran, Barber, Neil & Edgar (maternal) and Chester, Thompson, Slawson, Templeton & Holmes (paternal).

I share with many the firm belief that we are merely stewards of 'our' memorials - we manage them and are entrusted with their care and maintenance, but we do not technically 'own' them.

I'm certainly open to transferring memorials or updating as needed; my goal is to 'connect not collect'. You are welcome to copy and use anything I post in any way you like.

Enjoy, Joe

RE: Gale & Pierson @ Plains Cemetery/ Aurelius
You are welcome Joe! Sorry I didn't get to them sooner. I've been sick for many months and my genealogy work took a back burner.

Slawson - Prairie Home Cemetery
Thanks for the info on the Slawsons. I was able to find and add several obituaries for them if you're interested. Hope they help your research!

RE: Cooper/Sprague/Summer @ Mount Avon
Sure! I had a friend who lived down the street from this beautiful cemetery. We had a great time traipsing through the snow and the evergreens. Glad to be of help.

RE: Slawsons
I had the privilige of corresponding with Col. Merritt O. Slawson in 1994 and found him to be a genuine human being. I am also a distant cousin to Col. Slawson, connected via marriage on his mother's side.
