|Bio and Links|
I've been doing genealogy since 1979 after my dad died. I realized I didn't know much about the family.
I'm from Indiana but after my husband died I moved to Kentucky where my sister lived. So now I spend time putting family info on here and work on my tree. I feel it's an act of love and I can come visit any time I want.
My children are my pets. After my two passed away, Fefe was almost 18 and Trixie was 16. I rescued a HavaMalt who was like 2 months old and named him Charlie Chan. I also have a cat named Scooter Pie. He picked out his name himself. I tried naming him different names but they didn't seem to fit and he didn't respond to any of them. One day I was looking at some scooters and thought that would be a cute name. I yelled out Scooter!!! and he came running to me. Now I have also Mommacat, she was abandoned here at the trailer park and she had kittens, she was malnourished, loosing her hair and too skinny to be feeding kittens. Sadly only one survived and she has made herself at home with me. Her name is Sophie. I think she's about 3 months old right now.
I also write poetry and make jewelry, flower arrangements.
I'm researching McColley/Sosbe, Neal/Baughman, Trees, Hills, Trowbridge, Branyan, Hook, Yemmons, Johnson, all kinds of spellings for Sosbe, plus more. It was exciting to find out I'm related to Cindy Crawford and also Drew Carey.
Thank you all for putting a memorial on my family's graves, they are appreciated God bless.
Also if I have any family and you are closer related to that person, I will be happy to transfer them to you.
And if you have any info I'll be glad to add it.
God bless and keep you,
Janet McColley Franklin

I sent you an email containing an attachement containing a copy of his will which shows him to be deceased in 1822. Hope this helps.

I just went thru the newspaper and found that Mrs. Casey's burial place was in Fairview cemetery. It can be found on page 1 of the Tipton Daily Tribune, Feb. 5, 1926. Her obituary was on page 8 of the same paper.

|Catie & Will||RE: Cynthia Casey|
My husband's great-grandmother was married to Jesse McColley. Because of this relationship, my mother-in-law knew Cynthia and attended her funeral, and so, was certain that Cynthia was buried in Fairview cemetery by her husband. A good many widows don't have headstones. The husbands usually had one if they had served in the military.
We have excellent cemetery records (although the earlier ones are rather spotty) and obits in Tipton county.
Hope this helps,
Catie and Will

You are so right about the mistakes that just keep going forever! I try to make sure I have accurate data and make corrections whenever I find mistakes. Many others are not too concerned about accuracy. I've been doing genealogy as a hobby since I was a young teenager and learned over the years how very important having the correct data can be. I've found obituaries published several days (or even years) before the date of death on tombstones and yet the contributors sometimes don't believe it. I don't see how an obituary can be published in the newspaper BEFORE a person dies. :-) I don't push it, but do give them the info. It is more common that I had ever realized to have the wrong dates on tombstones. An older genealogist told me that in olden days, it might be several years before a tombstone could be purchased and by then, the dates were often "blurred" in the family's memory.
I'm retiring from my job on Jan. 1. YAY! If I can ever help in any way, just let me know.

It was an honor for me to be able to do this for you. I hope I did his their memory justice. If you ever need anthing else, please don't hesitate to let me know. Respectifully, Jerry.
|Carol Guinn Jenkins||Matthias Hook|
Thanks Janet for the transfer of Matthias Hook.
The only time I saw his name as Matthias was on a census and I thought maybe the census taker just did not know how to spell his name or heard it wrong. I have never heard anyone else call him that.
I wish there was a bible record of his birth, maybe it would be recorded there as Martin Matthias. My grandmother never called her grandfather anything but Matthias Hook.
