Bio and Links
I always been interested in cemeteries, and family history. My work on my family history started in 1978. I worked most of my life in manufacturing, starting in Production and eventually ending in Quality Assurance. I retired in 2010, after working for 40 years and doing a tour in the United States Air Force, during the Vietnam War. Enjoy checking out cemeteries and working on my family history. On father's side is: Banister, Bracken, Burke, Mappin, Rogers, Williams. On my mother's side there are Peterson, Johnson, Johannesson, Petersdotter, Sill, Swanson, Edwards, Holmes, Schumacher, and Sundlop, just to mention a few. These families are a mixture of Irish and Swedish, which makes for some interesting times. I was inducted into the "Sons of the Amercian Revolution" in May 2012.

Abraham Dean Nora (Mappin) Russell
Hello Stephen,

I'm a grandson of the subjects noted (my mother was Betty Dean). I'm guessing you talked with a cousin of mine that said Abraham was also Grey Wolf. This is just a fabrication on the cousins part to help them maintain a certain character image. Just wanted to make you aware of this.

Best regards,
Mike J.

Thanks so much for the information on Lamach Blandin Jr. and his wife, Lydia Lambert Bandin. I have not made it to the Blandinsville yet, and was wandering if there is an actual gravesite. This is exciting to learn, and I will pass it on to other family members. Thank you so much for your time. Donna (Blandin) Fannin

Hi. The birth date for John William Graham is 2/22/1882, according to his gravestone and census records. Will you please correct this in his FindaGrave record? Thank you!

RE: Anthony and Mary Ausbury
Thank you for the Lamb obituaries. I appreciate your sending them. For the most part they will help in identifying the "other" Lambs of McDonough Co. As it happens only Elizabeth Lamb who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Antony Ausbury, is apart of the family that I trace. I maintain a file on other Lambs in that county so those obits have a place to be an informational resource in the future.

I am working on a display for the Library in observation of Family History Month in October. Seems one thing or the other has delayed my research. Previously I did this with another member of our genealogical society but she is now busy being Regent for the local DAR chapter.

Many thanks,
