Bio and Links
I have been researching my family history since 1978 when a friend took me to a library and I found a book on my Loveless line. I have edited and published a book on my McCoy's,and working on other lines now. My family lines are Barber, Graham, Harritt, Richmond, Dusenberry, Thams and Stueve on my Dad's side. My Mother's family is Holloway, McCoy, Beal, Loveless & Hanson.
I have been transcribing the Carpinteria Cemetery and adding photos. This is the town I grew up in and still live there.
I am retired now and spend a lot of time traveling to KS, NE, IL, IA, IN researching my lines.
I will be happy to look up information in the Santa Barbara and Ventura Co, California areas.
Genealogy is my passion and I am happy to share any of my research.

Mary Lee Wykoff
Hi Jean,

My name is Mary Lee Wykoff-Strickfaden. I grew up in Trivoli and still live there. My father was William E. Wykoff Sr. He is buried in Trivoli. I seen Mary Ann Wykoff Graham's grave site and was wondering how she was related to my father. My fathers father was Charles Wykoff.

Thank you,

Elmer C Graham
Hi Jean, I created a memorial for Elmer and linked him to his parents Alfred and Eliza. Elmer was buried in a now defunct cemetery in Peoria called Moffatts. I have no way to know if he was removed from there at some point in time. The last burial there was in 1905. Some persons were removed to other cemeteries. I don't think any markers remain there, I know there is a plague with the names of C.W. soldiers who were buried there. You can google Moffatts for more info on it.
All the best, Debra

Bebb Family
Hi Jean Foster, I saw a message you left from 2009 about the Bebb and Graham family lines. I am from the Bebb family and was wondering if you meant you had any Bebb family information also... I am on and am trying to fill in the missing family, it's quite large and would appreciate any input you might have!

Thanking you!

Martha Matthews
Hello Jean, I saw your flower note on Martha's memorial. I am related to Albert through the Ellis family. Do you know where his mother Bessie Ellis Matthews Gorman is buried? Judy

In answer to your question, the name came from a list of interments provided by the Fort Supply museum. The cemetery headstones have been photographed, and none was found for him (or her). The headstones were simple blocks of concrete with the names pressed into them from raised stencil letters while the concrete was still wet. Over the years many of them have been destroyed by mowers or have simply fallen apart from time and weathering. All of the information I have is posted on the memorial.
Best regards,
Rick Miller
