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.

Now I love to travel to all the places they have lived, makes a great vacation as well as researching.

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. I love it when a plan comes together and this plan through the F.A.G. memorials was to put the families together under one or two mangements. Our heritage deserves no less than loving caretakers. No one person can properly manage a Kjillion memorials of people they don't know, impossible to do and a Great disservice to the families searching & who have proper dates, names & Bio's. Do you really own Dead People?, do you also See them? (that's a joke)

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.) REMEMBER where you got the info and GIVE credit where Credit is DUE, and acknowledge your source. I don't mind any family member having the info, but to just take it as yours is disrespectiful 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 to 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.....have met so many now, some did not realize there are still cousins out here. We're here and I have made many connections to their closer cousins.

I am a great-great-great granddaughter through their son, William, whose daughter Emma was my great-grandmother. Unfortunately, she died very young, and I have never known the family..

No problem, just wish I could read morher's death certificate. You might look at it and see if you can. It does say in a mausoleum there.

I would love to know where you get your beatiful flowers and other memorils that you leave. I would love to know where some of the contributors get them. I get so tired of leaving the same ones that they have for you to pick from. I was just wondering. Thanks, Henry Webber

Elizabeth Skinker Peake
I hope you can help me with a puzzle. My fourth g-grandparents are Humphrey Peake and Elizabeth Skinker, through their daughter Sarah Skinker Peake Richards (m. Joab Richards), her daughter Sallie Peake Richards (m. William Woodford Battaile), their daughter Annie Laurie Battaile (m. Edmund Pendleton White) their son Rev. Randolph Alexander White, and my father Edmund Pendleton White. I have searched tirelessly and can't find any further info on them, esp. Mr. Peake. I have her birthday as June 5, 1722 and I know she is the daughter of Samuel Skinker. Everything I find gives Mary Stonestreet as Humphrey's wife. Could Elizabeth have been a second wife? If you can help I'd really appreciate it.
