Semi-retired model railroader who has just discovered the addiction of genealogy. I live in South Saint Louis County Missouri, but I am close to Jefferson County Missouri and right across the Mississippi River from Monroe and Saint Clair Counties in Illinois. I most enjoy trying to link families together, finding out who are the parents, aunts and uncles, and grandparents of various people I have discovered here. When possible I try to find obituaries at the library and copy them into the bio. If I can help you, please contact me.
Fr. James J. Rodis MIKE, great job on Fr. Rodis memorial. His ordination date was April 2, 1960,by Joseph Cardinal Ritter at the New Cathedral. I will delete my page. Thanks for noting the above. Max K.
RE: Sr Emerita Mary McManus Thank you for your kind words! I taught at St. Mary's for one year before the school closed, so the Sisters have a special place in my heart. I add memorials for them whenever I can. Anytime you have information to add, please forward it. And of course, the offer stands. Anytime you see a memorial you'd like transferred, just let me know. I always transfer to friends and family unless the memorial is part of my tree!
Duncan Stewart Fults Correction Thank you Michael for all the work you have done. Like you, I have got the genealogy bug...bad lately. I wanted to point out an error on the entry for my great grandfather, Duncan Stewart Fults. His father's information is correct, but the mother you have listed is actually his grandmother. It can be confusing with the Fults name because there were so many Jacob Fults. Duncan's mother was actually Caroline Kline-Fults. She lived from 1840-1929, but I cannot find anything on her on findagrave.com.
RE: Pat Whalen Hello Michael, Its great to hear from you. Hope you and your family had a good Christmas and New Year.
I'm hoping to find some photos of the Whalen Family and the pool hall-saloon that was in Hoxie. I have an old postcard of the Hoxie Business that were on Texas Street ( main street in Hoxie ) from the early 1900's, but the quality of the photo is not good. I have seen Pat Whalen Bottles, but I don't have one. They are very rare and expense to buy.
Email me and I will send some scans of bottle and the old postcard.
Sara Ashbaker-Hern Thank you for adding a picture of my daughters grave site. I have one but just never put it on but I do appreciate you doing it. I happen to come on here and look for my dads and seen you had posted the picture.
Pat Whalen Hello Michael, I notice that Pat Whalen was your GGF. I'm in the process of doing a history of Hoxie, Arkansas and trying to find some information on him. He had a pool hall-saloon and a bottling company in Hoxie.
