Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

Bertha Alice Ashmore Campbell
Hi Jim, Bertha is my 1st cousin 3 x removed. I have come across a bit of a mystery concerning her - a marriage in Huntington County, IN, which took place 30 Sep 1920. On this marriage record for Bertha Ashmore Campbell to F. Edward Washburn, her parents' names are stated, along with the date of her divorce from her first husband (5 Feb 1917). Meanwhile, Kenneth C. Campbell was married to Geneva Berry between at least 1920 and 1940. So, it seems Kenneth and Bertha must have remarried sometime after Geneva died. Do you know anything about this? Thanks!

Jim, you mention in your bio above that Parke County has a great website. Could you please give me the link? I have many ancestors from Parke County that I am researching. Thanks! ~Sally

Thank you so much for trying to find his grave at the Rockville Cemetery in Parke County, Indiana. I suspect he is in an unmarked grave.

RE: Dr. Joel Lynch and wife Laura Ellen
Actually NO. He died and was buried there and according to what I have tracked down online, his wife lived there as a widow for some time and then apparently moved to this area with their child. They appear to be buried separately. The day I stopped at Dailey Cemetery I did not locate Laura's grave, but it was nearing sundown. I will return in the next couple weeks and look more thoroughly.

Thank you very much for looking of the stone. I was afraid it might no longer be there.

RE: Irene Lucille Shores
Ok, I processed those edits. In the first group of edits her parents had been listed as Knapp, but her maiden name (the one that I denied before) had been something other than Knapp and that's why I had questioned it.
