Bio Photo Hello,

I'm picking up where my mother, grandmother, & great-grandmother left off. So I guess that makes me the fourth generation genealogist. I am doing genealogy for my in-laws, as well as myself & my granddaughter's fathers' line, and my children's fathers' lines. So quite a few families. Some of these include Flynn (of Ireland/Wisconsin), Mountin, Shannon (of Ireland/Wisconsin),
O'Neil (of Ireland/Wisconsin), Dingee, Gottermote/Goodermote, Dull/Doll,Larkins/Larkin,
Bice/Boyce, Terrill, Mann/Man , Lang, Hailey, Cochran, Stucky, Covey, Reed, Martin, David,
Machen/Mason/Machin/Masen, Lyman, Hoffman,
Bellamy, Hansen, Coffman/Kauffman,
Reppening, Ritter, Atterberry/Atterrberry/Aterberry,
Pickering, Durfee/Durfy, Lopez, Rodriguez,
Kimball, Wenger, Youssef/Yousef/Yousif,
El Shahed/Elshahad, just to name a few....

Joseph and Sarah Dull
While looking for another obituary, I came across a 1916 article in the Wichita (Kansas) Beacon newspaper for Joseph and Sarah Dull, celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. If you didn't already have it, I'd be happy to email it to you. (Or if you have a subscription to, you can find it in The Wichita (Kansas) Beacon September 23, 1916, Page 16, lower left corner.)

My email is mikemaxton at maxtonfamily dot com.

Carl Joseph Sween
You have my Grandfather Carl and Grandmother Jettie buried incorrectly. They are both buried in Pacific Lutheran Cemetery which is at the rear of Evergreen-Washelli Memorial Park, near the corner of N. 115th Street and Meridian Avenue. Seattle. They have not been done in Find A Grave. I have photos of the tombstones. Also buried in the same cemetery are their daughter Alix and her husband Clark Turner.

You could also link their daughter Thelma and her husband Merle Knudtson who are buried in Sunset Hills Memorial Park; Bellevue; King County; Washington, USA. You have their son William and his wife Faye Sween in that cemetery.

My father Severin A. Sween's ashes are scattered at Turner's Corner in Bear Creek Township, Snohomish County, Washington. My mother Mary Sween is buried in the Bear Creek Cemetery, Bear Creek Township, Snohomish County, Washington. She is in Find A Grave.
Thanks, Elva Whiting

Stella Bain 51326542
I got this message and thought you might be interested in putting it on Stella's page.

To continue my story from yesterday, in late 1979 we moved to Enid, Oklahoma after discharge from the army. The oilfield was going strong at that time and $5 an hour starting pay sounded wonderful! (Minimum wage was $2.25). One morning after taking Heather and Gary to school I was home listening to a trade fair type radio program. An elderly woman came on saying she was blind, couldn't afford much but needed just a little help. Thus began our relationship with Mrs. Bain. She was a blind, 92 yr. Old widow of 50 years. She never had any children, nor did she have any siblings. She had no living relatives at all and had lived in the same small 1 bedroom apt. For all of those 50 years. It was very obvious by her meager furnishings that she was not a rich woman financially. I fell in love with Stella Bain the moment we met! She was a person who worried about everyone else and not herself. She was always happy. She found a reason to laugh in every situation. She would want to doctor me or the kids if we were coughing or sick. One time when I had been experiencing a particularly hard and stressful time in my life, she made me lay down on her couch and take a nap. While I layed there she made some beef stew and when I got up made me eat all the while laughing because she wasn't for sure exactly what all she had put in it since she couldn't see the labels on cans! One day when I got to her house she had a pile of things in her living room floor waiting to be picked up by the Goodwill. In it was a lace collar tatted by her mother many many years ago. Also in the pile was a fox collar, complete with all 4 feet, tail and head. Her husband had brought it home for her when he returned from Germany after WWI!!! She laughed saying she didn't need them anymore when I asked why in the world she was giving them away! She gave my children (3 at that time) all a 50 cent piece for Christmas one year. It was all she had to give but to me it felt like she had given them $100! Those 50 cent pieces were given with so much love! My most favored memory of Mrs. Bain was when my son Clay was born. She had never known the joy of being a mother, a grandmother or even an aunt. She had never witnessed the miracle of birth or held a new baby. The hospital was a few blocks from her home. So upon leaving the hospital, before ever going home, we went to her house with our new baby. If only you could have seen the pure joy on her face when I placed that baby in her arms! It was an experience never to be forgotten! A week later, Mrs. Bain slipped in her bathtub. Breaking her hip she couldn't get up or out. She layed there over night until the next day when the preacher came to visit and heard her cries of help when he knocked. When telling me about the accident, she once again found a reason to laugh. She was naked, in the tub, when the preacher found her! This accident sent her to the nursing home for the few months remaining in her life. I would take baby Clay and visit her. She always would laugh and and say, " lay him right here beside me" while putting her arms out. There she and Clay would lay. Cuddled in her arms, he would sleep and she would rest peacefully with a smile on her face.. Make me wonder what I was there for! Then came the awful day when Clay was 2 months old that I had to tell her that the oilfield was failing and that we were moving back to Texas. This is the only time I ever knew her to not find a reason to laugh. Her words were "oh hell". I had never heard a cuss word come from her mouth before. I hated taking Clay from her and leaving her that day. It was the last time I ever saw or talked to her. We moved and she died a few days later. What a blessing this loving, gentle woman was. I was so fortunate to have been listening to the radio the day she called needing some help. She gave me more than I could have ever helped her. These 2 women gave me more than I could have ever imagined. And the greatest gift of Merry Christmas Maggie Horton and Stella Bain! Thank you for the memories! Hope your having fun dancing with the angels!

RE: Re: Lester Pierce
Thank you very much. You don't have to make a special trip. I normally plan a trip to a cemetery and before going will write down all the photo requests for that cemetery. Thanks again :)

Lester M. Pierce
I was wondering if you were able to read the inscription on Lester M. Pierce's headstone 1925-1989 in Elmwood Cemetery, SD. I try to magnify it but it gets really blurry. Looks like it says "Parents of Lorin, Randy".... I don't have any children listed for Lester and this is the only lead I had.
Thanks :)

Wondering about her birthdate. 1900 census states Mar 1841. Wonder what source you have? Tombstone has 1842 also.

Mann Family
I saw your message on Find A Grave concerning who George Flemming Mann was/is. I took the Ancestry DNA test. Flemming Mann was my 3rd great grandfather, born 1821 in Pennsylvania. He married Mary Ann Kistler. Their daughter Phoebe married Charles McGlothlin. I do not have a death date or burial for Flemming or Mary Ann Kistler. I do not know anything about the Mann family. Any information you would like to share would be appreciated.
Thank you,
