Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm retired. I've been doing genealogy since about 1991. Like many genealogists I enjoy walking through old cemeteries and wondering about the lives of those who are laid to rest below my feet.

Contact me, VIA THE EDIT TAB on a memorial,

if I have entered info of a friend or loved one and there is an error to be fixed or additions to be made. I welcome a POLITE request for changes, corrections, etc. Again a POLITE request.

PLEASE USE THE TAB on the specific memorial to send or suggest corrections or ask questions. DEMANDS OR RUDENESS WILL BE IGNORED.


Thank you.

Sierra Miller
Distant Family
MY name is Sierra Miller I live in Southwestern Ohio. I recently learned some family members on my paternal side and decided to try genealogy for this when it led e this direction. Henry Clay Somes is my 4 x great grandfather, his granddaughter Leona is my great great grandmother, her granddaughter Barbara Caddell is my paternal grandmother. I am seeking any family members to be in touch with, and I have also just purchased the Ancestry DNA test in order to attempt at a match via the ste. I am on or I can also be emailed at Please feel free to contact me I would love it!

RE: Bell family
Jeremiah is my own line who came from Monette, MO---- may be also connected to Johnny's line, but, as of this moment not proven! Johnny's Bell line came to Oklahoma (just over the AR border) in the early 1900's his dad was born in Tarby, OK 1910. My dad's line was the Jeremiah Bell he was married to Dorinda Francis and their daughter Rosa Belle married Samuel Watkins and was dad's paternal grandmother. Their daughter, Rose Watkins, married James William Tincher who was my grandfather.

Johnny's Bell line started in Ozark Co. Missouri. His grandfather was William Harrison Bell.

Unknown Embree
I'm sorry, there is no stone. In the sextant's book it just says "Embree". I have always assumed it was a child, but it could have been a member of the family from some other location.

Hi FamilySearcher. Your autoedit suggestion from Nov. 28 was to add wife Jessie and remove parents Albert and Jane. Although the link to Jessie looked right from the research I did, the removal of the parents seemed like it would remove correct info (the death certificate listed them.) So, rather than just approve your suggested edit, which would have been one-third right, I declined the suggested edit, and added the spouse link, and added a note back to you to see if you had info that those were the wrong parents. Does that make sense? Sorry this got so complicated - let me know if you have info or research that contradicts what I've got posted now. Take care, *Janice

RE: USN service as well
WOW... I was supposed to be on that ship. Not too many people know about or remember that incident. AZ3 Padget was in my place with the Helo detachment.

RE: Mary Agnes C Baird
Aunt Agnes married (Uncle) John Henry McCallister and they didn't have any children.

*The gentleman from Ireland that gave me some family info also has some letters that were written by Baird family members and sent back to Ireland. Those are treasures! He told me about one and it was fun to hear how they described the Carthage area from back then.

RE: James Baird, Carthage, Il
My Aunt Agnes was the granddaughter of James and the daughter of Alexander. The Baird gentleman who gave me a lot of info actually lives in Ireland. I had Glasgow down first but he had records that showed the other town as the birth town. I can't remember his name now as it has been some time since we corresponded.
