Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got seriously involved in my geneology when my father passed in March 2009. I am still a newbee to all of this but I am trying hard and making many new friends traversing the many avenues of research.

I have many, many ancestors in Mower Co, Goodhue Co, and Olmsted Co, Minnesota; Charleston, S.C.; the state of Iowa and Ohio. I am trying to advance my family research in the state of Pennsylvania & Massachusetts but the going is very slow.

Living in Southern California I have to rely on others for alot of my information for which I am eternally greatful.

Surnames : Gee, Rupe, Shaw, Leason, Eggleston, Kraft, Wohlers, Hawkins, Ryan, Cunningham.

You are so very welcome for the photographs of Guy and Alta Myers's grave markers. Your loved ones were very easy to find, with the help of the grave locations you had obtained from Ocean View Cemetery. It was a brilliantly sunny day and my yellow Labrador and I enjoyed our time walking amongst the silent residents. Kind regards, Bridey Light

RE: Louis & Kate Eggleston
Ms Hawkins,
I sent a reply to your email address
Didnt see that I could respond direct here,
this is what I sent to your email

Yes, I can take care of Louis and Catherine Anna's memorials on Find A Grave if you would like.

I was very interested to hear from you that George R Eggleston 1806-1886 was your GGG Grandfather....he is mine as well. I have been trying to find where he may have been buried in Hand County, South Dakota, and where his parents may have come from, but have had no luck. I have tried all the usual sources, including the Courthouse in Hand County.
Also, I cannot find burial information on his son George R., Jr. either ( 1834-1878) who died in Iowa County, Iowa.

Do you happen to have any information on George,Sr or George Jr burials and George Sr's parents ?

Thank you so much !

STahl -Kraft - Naas family
Hi Laura,

My name is Yael,I am a graduate student in Tel Aviv University Israel working on the Seventh Day Adventist mission to Puno, Peru. My research looks into the life of one of your distant relatives, Mr. Ferdinand Stahl, who was the son of one Theresa Carolina Kraft Stahl Naas. Theresa married a Ferdinand stahl in 1873, Stahl jr was born in 1874. Ferdinand Stahl the father died in 1877 and then Kraft must have remarried Naas. If I am correct than Fredrick Naas jr was probably her step son and Fredrick Jacod Naas was also married for the second time. I was wondering if any of this made sense to you and if perhaps you knew if any of Theresa's relatives lived in Pentwater Michigan. That is where Stahl grow up and I think he was probably sent to live with relatives once his father died and mother got remarried (to the best of my knowledge at the time a women did not bring another man's children to her new home)
