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: 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.

RE: Joys in Cass County
Hi Joe! The JOYS are not kin to me, so I transferred to you for upgrading. Hope you don't mind. :)

Hi: Name was taken from the Cemetery Index List, therefore, I have no way of knowing what his actual name was. Sorry. Have a good day.

Congratulations on an excellent job of making the connections and adding a wonderful collection of photos and media.I am working on a Lanark County tree and the Barber Family is definitely part of it.If you don't object,I would love to add your photos to the tree which is growing in Family Search .Putting faces to the facts makes our ancestors come alive and makes us feel connected to our past like nothing else I know.

thanks for all your hard work...this geneology thing is absolutely addictive!

Westlawn-Hillcrest Vets
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

George Slawson is my 9th great grandfather. My father is Robert Thomas Slawson and my grandparents are Alphreda M Adams and Harry Edmond Slawson. I am researching both sides of my paternal family and would love to access your information so I can validate some of what I have. Are you a member of Ancestry? How might I find your tree?
Sincerely, Kathy Slawson Osborne
