Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 13th generation American - just plain American - no hyphenated nationality in front of "American"!! I did a DNA test in late 2014 and the results indicated I am 100% European with origins from England, Scotland and Ireland along with some Western and Central European [i.e. Germany] and a touch of Scandinavian.

I caught the genealogy "bug" over 12 years ago, but one of my sisters has been doing our family genealogy for over 30 years. It is addictive! and thrilling when we find information.

My sister and I research our family lines, including on our father's side from the southern states: Linn, Galloway, Laster/Lassiter/Lasiter, James, Hysaw, Caldwell, Jeansonne/Johnson, Ritter, Edelmeier, Steen, Stelly, O'Rear, and Newman. Our direct Linn line has been in America since c1772, but other lines that married into the Linn's were in America as early as 1635. Most of these families came from Ireland and Scotland although research is showing that the Edelmeier, Ritter, Steen and Stelly lines came from Germany settling in Louisiana in 1721 and by the mid 1700's (Ritter's).

On our mother's side from the northern and east coast states, we research the family lines of Beebe, Sides, Lincoln, Borden, Hickox, Upson, Starr, Plumb, Warner, Sensabaugh, Clapp, Haskins, Williams, Brigden, Train and McComb. Our mom's direct Beebe line has been in America since 1649, but her Starr line came in 1634. With the exception of the Sensabaugh line, the rest of these families were in America in the mid 1600's. The majority of these lines are English with the exception of Sensabaugh which came from Germany and possibly initially settled in Canada, but were in America by 1810 on the east coast.

If you find a relative that I have entered or even a friend, I am more than willing to transfer management of the page to you (other than my own ancestors and relatives). Just send me an email asking for the transfer and please let me know your relationship to the person, their FAG memorial # AND your member ID # (PREFER that you use the 'Edit' button to contact me).

I think it is important to share genealogy information and am thankful to all those who have shared information with me which is why I am willing to share info with others. I try very hard to put a good description on my memorials so you can get to know the person rather than just a name.

You are also very welcome to use any pictures I post on findagrave for your personal genealogy or to post on, but please indicate where you found the picture and give credit to whoever took the picture.

I came across your memorial today for Eli Putnam Beebe while researching my husband's family tree. Eli is his 5th Great Grandfather. His line is Eli Beebe-Clinton Beebe-Francis Beebe-Carrie Beebe Vannest-Nina Vannest Morgan-Harry Kenneth Morgan-David Kenneth Morgan (his father). I want to thank you for your memorial that provided me with additional information to continue me on my search.

Glad to see your still around
HI Toni..glad to see your still doing some genealogy. Not sure if I told you but I seen your book at the Allen Country Library last year. Ya'll did a very goodr job. I'm still looking up family. I also just wrote to Professor Dr. Peter Ruckert in Germany today. I seen him on one of those genealogy shows and he does research at Stuggart where the records are held. I sent him what I had on my Stelly ancestors and hope to hear from him. If I hear anything from him I like to write you back ok. I believe you still have my e-mail address so just contact me there or Find A Grave. Again, nice to see you here again.

RE: Charles Steen, Sr.
Oh my goodness's people like you that make me keep following this, my passion. You have so much detail and knowledge.

I've been doing this for awhile and I know that you have to take some of those Ancestry records with a grain of salt.

I know that Daisy is the relative of yours but I was also wondering, if you could tell me, about her son, Bernard. Apparently the woman that he married that bore him my friend's mother, Angela, was named Amelia. I don't know if you know anything about Bernard (or any generation below Daisy and Marshall). The ancestry records have Bernard married multiple times. But, I know that 2 people might be the same person with just the names reversed....hard to tell.

My friend's mom, Angela Morgan, was born in 1957 and the wives that are listed for him were marriages before this time. And it also has them in Florida, Minnesota, Texas, and of course Louisiana.

How do you decipher the real from the false, LOL?

Hi there,
I have sort of started looking for ancestors of my friend, Vincent. His mother was Angela Howard nee Morgan. Angela's father was Bernard Morgan (1922-2001). Bernard's parents were Marshall & Daisy Morgan nee Steen (I think). As many ancestry records can be wrong, I was wondering if you know if I have the right Bernard Morgan. Did the Daisy Steen in your family, that you know of, marry a Marshall Morgan?

My 2nd great grandfather was a Steahlin and I have been looking at getting more information on his father's side of the tree. I have it going back to Johan Georg Stählin. Any information on this would be great.
