I was born to Willard and Irene Sitts on June 29, 1957 in Caldwell, ID. I live in Texas so finding my family history is a bit of a challenge just using the internet but I have found quite a bit.
My interest is in the Sitts, Schimmels, Mattingly and Hays (Hayes) families. I have alot of history on the Mattingly's from Barry County, MO and surrounding area because a cousin of my dad's on the Mattingly side of the family put together a book called "A Mattingly Tree and Branches". It is filled with a wealth of information.
My grandfather Sitts was from Champaign, IL and recently I have found alot on his background. He married my grandmother Iva Edith Mattingly from MO. My mom was from the Schimmels family in Naponee, NE and her mom's maiden name was Hays or Hayes, I found things with both spellings. I believe some of the Hays are from PA originally and moved to KS and NE
If you wish to use any of my photos for memorials you have created or on Ancestry.com please feel free to do so but don't share them claiming them as your own. Thank you.
