Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,

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

Yes, do let me know so children can all be linked to them. Wouldn't you suspect she is with other children buried in Nebraska and he possibly with children in Indiana? have you tried to phone the cemetery? If a DC exists that shows funeral homes that would help too but I imagine you've already done all that foot work.

Hello Janet, no I am not related, however came upon a name in Wheeling WV "Naegele" which , as you can imagine, is found spelled a variety of ways. Sarah Melissa McColley married Franz/Frank Joseph Naegele/Nagele. Then I try to find her parents and family, which is how I came to your McColley memorials. She is also daughter of Amos and Louisa Lovett. You can read her bio on memorial 171001385. Wish I could find where their parents are buried to 'reunite' the family.

You can transfer, my mom-in-law is a Renz from Toledo, I have had a lot of luck getting her tree done, and have created a book. She saw it for the first time today, I think I made her day.

Thanks in advance! Bev
