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, Goodhue, and Olmsted Co, Minnesota; & Charleston Co, S.C. As well as the states of Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania & Massachusetts but the going is very slow.

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

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

Any transfers of memorials to myself will not be deleted and replaced. That is rude and unseemly to the hard work of the original creator.

Any photo taken and posted by myself is free to use. No need to ask for permission to reuse nor is acknowledgment required in it's reuse. Once anything hits the internet it is out in the world much like our journey thru life and it is just as hard to control. So feel free to enhance your family trees and records with what I have.

Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: Gee genealogy
Will look forward to hearing from you. Am not very computer savvy but do have a decent amount of info to share. Yes, I do have a family tree.

Gee genealogy
Hello, Saw your bio and see we have some common ancestors. Like yourself, I got involved in our family history when my dad passed in 1993. Would be happy to share what I have if you'd like to do so. Have been trying for over twenty years to find documentation showing the link between Moses Gee and his son Enoch R. It can be frustrating at times but is sure great when you make a breakthrough. Hope to hear from you, John

Jess Lee
Laura, Thanks for your effort to locate Jess's grave. I see that I made a mistake on his death information. He actually died in 1951 rather than 1921. I thought that might make a difference in finding him in the cemetery records. Am I correct that there would be a record of his burial even if he didn't have a stone? Glenda

RE: Jesus Garcia
Thank you for verifying he was a child, that confirms that he wasn't our grandfather.

There is no headstone, but was there any info for this grave like birth and death dates? Any information would be so much appreciated.
