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.

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.

Hi T. Linn:
I have been working on my Babcock family in Newaygo Co., MI. My great grandfather Henry Truman Babcock had a brother Z. Taylor Babcock m. Clarissa R. Dake
(1st cousin) and they had daughter Rosetta Violet Babcock. Her first husband was "Lute" Lucius B. Mattison #53715315 married around 1885 Michigan
(not in Newaygo or Oceana Co., MI. maybe Wexford Co. or Mason Co., MI.) They had two
daughters before they separated.
They were 1. Ada L. Matson, Quinn, Free, Bissell #100704388 and 2. Eva Sophia Mattson, Moore

I have asked Patti Ford to correct Hugh M. Free his 1st wife name in biography of Hugh M. Free in Find A Grave
to Ada NOT Ida.

Ada L. Matson m. 1/h Richard Quinn 30 May 1898
Hart, Oceana Co., MI.
Divorced 15 May 1902 Mason Co.

Cleo and Arnold Free
m. 3/h Harry M. Bissell 18 Nov 1913

She is buried in Lakeside Cemetery, Muskegon,

I thought you might like to have this information
if you are working on this family. Rosetta Violet
Babcock, Mattison, Gilbert, McCoy, Hernes
children with Mattison and McCoy husbands.
Thank you,

RE: Susan (Dutton) Beebe
Hi Toni - This is the link & contact info for Attica Twp., Michigan.
Can you contact them as a family member and have Susan's headstone "raised" or perhaps they can refer you to a monument company to have her headstone repaired. I'm recovering from breast cancer & headstones are very heavy to lift. Also, I believe it is improper to go into a cemetery and start digging up headstones misc. so contacting the caretaker would be the right thing to do. I often photograph headstones which have fallen over so the family can have them repaired & preserved.

RE: Elizabeth Beebe
Hi Toni,
I searched Ephraim Warner on and found a family tree. I compared it to mine and I didn't find a common ancestor, but it's possible that they are related way, way back. They (my Warners and your Warners) could have been in Hartford Connecticut at same time in late 1630's and may have come from same place in England.

Good luck with your research!!

RE: Elizabeth Beebe
Good morning,
yes, by all means, use my photos for your genealogy and That's why I do it! It is a shame seeing the deterioration of the stones. I added my photos to document that. I read your bio and see that you have Warner ancestors. Where are your Warner ancestors from? I also have Warner ancestors that are from Long Island. They came from Massachusetts and ultimately England around 1630.
