Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Yakima, WA. I've been pursuing family history seriously for almost 30 years -- almost as long as I've been married to my wonderful husband. He is not so much into genealogy, but is a good sport about my "addiction", even to the point of helping me look for relatives in cemeteries when we travel. I love meeting cousins, too.

Main family names: Boone, Mayfield, Short, Tate, Savage, Hughes, Graham, Slater.

William D. Black (#97848889)
Doy: The family has always assumed the middle name of William D. Black was "Dye" but to my knowledge no legal documentation has yet to be found with his full name on it.
I hope you understand my decline of your edit for his middle name.
Thank you.

RE: John W. Mayfield
You are very welcome. Glad to help. I enjoy searching cemeteries for elusive markers. It is the ultimate scavenger hunt. As you may have noticed, the stone is sinking into the ground and the face of the stone is almost abutting the stone border of another family plot. I could not dig down to see the death date.

RE: Jerry Myer Liebau
Doy, aorry for taking so long to get back with you. You are probably correct in assuming that Jerry was named for his uncle. But after discussing this with his granddaughter, we agreed to leave his name as 'Jerry Myer'. According to her, that was the only name he used.

Emma (Savage) McGinnis #138496869
Doy, thank you for your request to add Emily as a nickname for Emma (Savage) McGinnis #138496869. As I see that you have the Savage name listed in your bio, I'm wondering how we may be connected. Emma's is my - soon to be 96 year old - mom in law's grandmother. This is the line: Emma (Savage) McGinnis (1858-1901), her daughter Ada Marie (McGinnis) Marney (1891-1963, then Frances June (Marney) Colby, born 1920. Any info that you can share would be great! :) Sunny
