Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,
I'm a wife, mother of two, Mother in Law and new Grandma, keeper of the fur babies, and enjoy not only genealogy, but scrapbooking, amateur radio and traveling.

Areas of research include Southern Illinois, Arkansas, Missouri, Michigan, Canada, Germany, Wales, and Cherokee Indian Nation in Oklahoma. I have been working on our family history since Jan 2008.

I will post my photos to families and their memorials first. Family belongs to Family.... they are not just "numbers" to us. Any requests for transfers of relatives will be considered and most likely honored - but please do not try to grab every surname grouping, keep it as close to your direct line as possible.

Keeping the memories of our ancestors alive is something we should all strive for - our history is something to embrace!

Thank you Megan for the transfer of Lydia's memorial. As you stated in your bio "Keeping the memories of our ancestors alive is something we should all strive for - our history is something to embrace!" Your work is appreciated.

Parker Marrs
So, I tried to link Parker to Myron (his son) that I entered today and it says that it's not a right number....since she is inactive, does this mean that I should recreate him in Findagrave?

Dorcas Haas Marrs
The link to this monument is really Flora (Florence B. Marrs) born 15 November 1870 (Niles, Berrien, Michigan) died 3 September 1943

Can there be a way to get a real picture of Dorcas's Grave? I am in Louisville and she is my 3 times Great Grandmother. Thank you!
My email is mammawhirl@yahoo.com
