Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am very much enjoying doing our family genealogy and learning about our family. The "Lemon" side, the "Eastman" side (my mother's) and the "Reid" side (my wife's). If anyone has any stories about our families I would love to see them.

I am working with Family Tree Maker 2014. I really enjoy working with this program. This project helps to keep my mind active. Originally from Galesburg, Michigan we now live in Lady Lake, Florida.

Connie and I have taken Genealogical trips researching our families and taking pictures of headstones in many cemeteries. We have been to Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, & Canada recording cemeteries. If anyone has any further information or corrections please feel free to contact me so I can make this information as complete and correct as possible. If I know we have family members in a cemetery I usually take pictures of every legible, and some barely legible, headstones.

Please help me with corrections.If you have additional info or a correction to one or more of my memorials please use the edit button then suggest a correction on that memorial. Leaving me a message makes it harder to make that correction.

These trips have afforded us the pleasure of meeting many distant cousins and we even found the original "Lemon" house built in 1809 and still being lived in in Columbia County, Pennsylvania. I had the pleasure of talking with a man that had grown up in the house and could tell me many stories of its history.

A picture is worth a thousand words and for the most part I only post internments with a picture of the headstone. Consequently I don't always record every inscription on the headstone. It is already written in stone.

We don't take all these pictures as if we're in some sort of a contest. We do it so we can help other people researching for their family members. I much prefer having a picture of the headstone. It is my belief that in death the family is much more likely to record the proper/correct information. It is true that upon rare occasions an engraver will make a mistake but much less likely than a census taker. Census records are a good guide but some people are very lackadaisical in giving the correct information to the census taker or the census taker is only trying to earn a pay check and just writes down what he/she wants, the way he/she hears it and many times very unledgible.

Unfortunately, Connie passed away on February 12, 2011. I will carry on but researching is not the same without her help. I truly miss being able to use her as a sounding board for ideas and problems. We really enjoyed traveling and taking photos of cemeteries.

Family research can be an addiction, it is for me, but it can be very rewarding and is a great avenue for meeting and corresponding with many distant relatives. I wish everyone happy hunting in your research.

Submitting a SAC ("Suggest a Correction" on the Edit tab) is the ONLY way to give me the information I need for corrections or transfer requests. I will not make changes from public messages. Please don't make me turn off public messages. (Public messages don't have the necessary links to do changes efficiently.) I take a lot of time posting these memorials. I am only too happy to make changes when I make a mistake but most of the time these public messages don't have enough information and don't even tell me what cemetery the person is in. I'm an old man and have a severe case of CRS so I'm not going to try to find your memorial in error.

RE: Compliant
Thanks for responding. I'll just forward these that you have declined to management and let them decide if they want to let them stay as-is.

Thank you for the edit to Cindy's memorial. She was a year behind me in school.

Tragically, Cindy died with her young son in a house fire.

Hoping your's is a Blessed Thanksgiving, my friend.

It is an honor for me to sponsor Vince's memorial. He was a couple years behind me in school, but in a small town you know everyone.

Always good to hear from you.

RE: Management request of James Isaac and Della Mae Johnson
Russell had 3 kids Bonnie, Dora, and Bruce (who passed last year) if i remember right. his first wife's name was Brenda Bragg, and then he married Alma. i've only see Russell a couple times in my life. him and his youngest sibling Maxine on the very property where they grew up. my grandmother was Edith Kathleen but they all called her Katy. she passed away last august. she told me a lot about their family and the old days. i have found that James Johnson did have several siblings which is on my page. but not a whole lot other than census records. i also found that he had an uncle Aldridge Robert Johnson age 67, and a Marie Taylor Johnson age 10 living in their household in 1930. im holding to found out more on them. James worked on the C&O Railroad and was also a photographer. and he stayed in a hospital in Quinnimont for over a year because of his heart and blood pressure. and he was still able to work on the railroad until his death in Nov. 1930. i also found a picture my granny had of Russell and his two daughter which i made into a 4x6 and colorized.
