Bio Photo We have been doing family Genealogy since the mid-1970's and have walked the ground and many cemeteries where our ancestors have been. Most of our ancestors were in Alabama, Georgia,Texas, Missouri, Mississippi, Ohio, the Carolinas, Tennessee, and Kentucky. We now reside in California and do most research via the inter-net.

anna M. Martin #95827504
Thank you for the transfer. I think that this lady is Anna Margaret Zingg Martin. Her husband is Oldis Rudell Martin. Oldis is also buried in the same cemetery. If this is Anna Margaret Zingg, her parents were Immigrants from Switzerland, Pieter Zingg and Ursula Sulser Zingg. The Zinggs connect into one of my families line.

Septimus F. R. Thompson
Thank you so much for finding this obscure piece of information on the Thompson family. My great grandfather was one of those minor children. I have extensively researched all 9 of Septimus' children with his first wife--Letitia Elizabeth Taylor Thompson. (Does anyone have any information about her date of death or burial place?) Here are some quick details about their children; anyone can contact me if they want more information.
Samuel D. (1847-? burial place unknown, possibly Arkansas or Kentucky), Willis Abbey (1849-1859 TX), Albert Henry (1851-1937), Benjamin Taylor (1853-1921), Elijah Tinder (1855-1937), Sarah Alice (1857-1942), George M. (1865-1926), Charles L. (1868-1950 CA), John S. (March 1871 - October 1951). For the Wheeler family, here is another curiosity that you might want to look into: Charles L. Thompson married Minnie Rickey in Texas in 1896; they moved to Oklahoma and had several children; Minnie and their children all died in Autumn 1901. In December 1905, Charles married May Wheeler, both of Sulphur, OK. They had several children. Later they moved to Oakland, CA where they were divorced. May remarried to Earl Mallory, but Charles remained single until his death.

Robert Allen DeLaRosa
Concerning my son's name being included on your site. His legal name is Robert Allen DeLaRosa. You identify him as Robert Allen DeLaRosa-Savory. Savory is Robert's stepfather's last name, not Robert's. As Robert's closest living biological relative I request that changes be be made to properly identify my son by his legal name only. Mr Savory is of questionable character, especially concerning his behavior around children and it causes a certain amount of distress to see his name associated with my family. Thank you.

Rufus Wheeler letter
The Rufus Wheeler letter has fascinated me from the moment I saw it. I'm amazed at how he names names, children, siblings, etc. I just stumbled onto something this morning. This letter mentions a sister of Rufus' grandfather (John Wheeler) who was a member of the first colony in Georgia. A couple of words have been unreadable to me until now. I now think Rufus wrote "Oglethorpe Colony." James Oglethorpe was the leader of the first colony of Georgia in 1733 which "sailed from Gravesend on the River Thames." I know the dates may not correspond, but Rufus is saying she became a part of that colony.

RE: Robert L Grant, Jr
Thank you very much. I wish others would see it your way. My wife says I spend too much time "digging up bones" but it almost an obsession for me in that I want to ensure others that passed before me are not forgotten. Its the least that I can do for them.
Again, thank you.
