Bio and Links
Bio Photo Photo at left: Peakville road sign, Clark Co. MO.
Peaksville City limits, town in near distant view, lookng east.

I began my genealogy work about 30 yrs ago, in hopes of finding my fathers heritage. It was a difficult journey but finally put the pieces together. After I had done that I found the Peake gelealogy online which had been done by John T. Suchy. I am so glad I did not see his file during my initial searching, but when I did I found that his simply VERIFIED all that I had found. Up to finding his file online, I had spent the first 15 years piecing the Peake names together, with all the Johns, Wm's and Humphreys, every Peake family named their children these names. It was, who goes to what family? and scratching head.

My family names are Peake, Eisenbach, Kunkel, Stevens,Tarbell,Henning, Moffett,Lotspeich, Holland, Worden Most of my memorials are those of these family names and I will not transfer them.

Many thanks to those that have transfered memorials, and to Ronald Sommers for obtaining so much information on the Kunkels side, as well as Marcella Chapel for securing so many photos of the old Grassyville Cemetery for us.

If you must copy and paste the BIO info from a memorial page and into your account on Ancestry or My Heritage Tree or any other genealogy website, (you know the ones that CHARGE a FEE to view.) Credit your Source please. I don't mind any family member having the info, but to just take it as yours is disrespectful considering all the big$$$$$ and time, I have spent to obtain it. 30 years......and you get it in minutes and for FREE. Shame/shame. NOTE: plagiarize...
To use and pass off the ideas or writings of another as one's own.

This has happened many times with the Lotspeich name. I love to share what I have, but my info was used,(info they never had before) and not even a thank you mamm, or an invite on the reunion trip to GA., the homeplace of the Lotspeich's I found for them. Sour Grapes, perhaps.

My endeavor here is not to get a Kgillion memorials under my belt and then dissappear and become inactive, personally I am not that important to have such an EGO, my work is to inform my cousins out there searching for their family. I love hearing from them and share. I think the Kgillion memorial data entry folks drop out and become the F.A.G. police................

PS: I am thrilled when a NEW Cousin contacts me via F.A.G.

RE: Wikitree
You can look-up http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Ebers-2
and see how I've used and attached your information on Wikitree.

I loaded a work-in-progress GEDCOM (aren't they all works-in-progress until you die?) to Wikitree so that family could easily access/edit/add to what I have. There are several who are working on various lines but we all use different software.

Ancestry.com subscriptions cost extra to access countries outside of your home country and I am working with people from Scotland, Germany, Peru, Canada, and -- soon -- Hong Kong, so we all needed a common base to work with and Wikitree fits!

My main project right now is going through the TWHS Newsletters and indexing them. I'm almost to the point where the first iteration can be published on the Web (I believe the site it will be located on is the WendishResearchExchange.org.) Then a call goes out for copies of missing issues to Index.

As I get "bored" with Indexing, I've been putting some of my family info on Wikitree and scanning photos and documents so the family has access to them. And, when I come across an interesting article like William Ebers in the Newsletter, I put information up and link with as many available web sources as I can find on the time I limit myself to.

If I don't limit myself I get lost in an Internet black hole.

Plus I want to get all this paper stuff outta my house! I may look like a hoarder to someone!

Thank you for all you do online.

Iam still looking for the gravesite of my great-grandpa, Wilhelm Raschke. He "may be" in the Paige/DimeBox/Winchester area -- but he only had a wooden cross when he was buried. In our family, no one living knows where he was buried.

Thank you for putting SO MUCH work into your family tree for everyone to share. I have included a couple of bios your put together one Wikitree.com (a free genealogy site) and would like to know how you would like me to site your work and invite you to join wikitree.com to share your work and contribute/verify the work of others.

Regarding Grassyville Cemetery in Texas -- do you know which church maintained the burial records?

Hello,

Can't locate your response for the specifics but if I remember correctly my tree is the Johnson Family Tree on ancestry.com.

Ona Marie Haley was married three times: Roy W Lesher, Lee C Furnas, and John William Peake.

I think she did own a store with her husband, Furnas, but can't locate the info now.

Do you give your consent to usage of John's pictures on my tree.

Thanks,

Larry

Hi JoAnne,

John married an extended cousin, Ona Marie Haley, of mine.

I would like to ask for your permission to add the pictures you have of John on my tree.

Thank you,

RE: Cornelia Peake Mcdonald
Thank you for your interest in the page. I was not involved in the deletion of anything. I posted the original photograph of the marker on the first entry when I entered the Colonel many years ago. There is no need for concern about how my memorials are "taken care of". After consideration of your request, I prefer to maintain it.

Thanks again,

George Seitz
