|Bio and Links|
|An ameteur genealogist (inheriting all deceased family members' work), an archivist and a family historian, I am descended from Daniel Boone, Thomas Farmer, Isaiah Washburn, SR, Elisha Moore of KY and MO, Edmund Rutter, SR of KY and MO, Henry Walz of Germany and Charles Chaussee originally of Montreal, Canada. |
My sons are descended from James Wickens of England, James Corke of England, William Elder Summerville and those are the lines I am pursuing at Find A Grave.
My other entries are from various pages photocopied at libraries as I travel north and south hunting obituaries, burials and other info on both direct and collateral lines in the family.

You found his death record in the South Dakota death records, so I agreed because only my mother said he died in Chicago. She said he had cancer and died in a hospital in Chicago. It turns out there is a death record for him in Chicago, too. Check it out:
If you search for FENNEL THOMAS TINKE you get
FENNEL THOMAS TINKE M/W Y-55 Certificate #6090283 1950-12-22 COOK 50-12-22
So my mother was right after all.
|Gail McCormick||RE: Thomas Tinker Fennel|
Thank you, Carolyn. My source is my mother. Thomas was my mother's favorite uncle. He died the day my sister and I were born, so Mom might have been confused. I can be satisfied with the South Dakota death records.
Thanks for adding his middle name. He was called Tinker Tom and his wife was called Tinker Pearl to distinguish them from all the other Tom and Pearl couples in the family. True.

Thanks for your edits on Jacob and Olive. I am wondering if they are related to you and if so, would you like their memorials transferred to you. I would be happy to do that since I feel that any relationship whether within the guidelines or not, deserves to have management.

|Jeanne Pritchett||RE: Lillian M Smith Eik|
I like what you did with Lillian's memorial, I think that anybody researching her will be able to understand it.
Thank you so much for the work you did on her!!
|Rod||RE: Nona Trudeau Malone|
Thank you for the edits. I appreciate your help. I am not as familiar with the people from the Elk Point area as I am from the central part of the county that I reside in.

|anonymous||YEARBOOK PHOTO OF GEORGE WICKENS|
I RAN INTO THIS YEARBOOK PHOTO OF GEORGE E. WICKENS IN A 1912 IOWA YR. BOOK. I AM WONDERING IF YOU WOULD LIKE IT ADDED TO HIS MEMORIAL. THE INFORMATION IS:
MORNINGSIDE COLLEGE, SIOUX CITY, IOWA.
First of all I want to thanks you Carolyn for all your dedication in helping others. Its appreciated more than you know!
I am trying to find information on Mahala Anderson Coats. She married John C. Coats April 19, 1858 in Morengo Iowa for what I am finding.
They had 5 children: One being Anna Matilda Coats BOTTORF~Fanny would have been my Great Grandmother who I can not locate where she is buried~ Delila ~ Marion B. ~ and William C.
I can not find whom were Mahala parents were. I haven't found any obits at all. I am in hopes that after posting this I will finally make some headway on Mahala and my Great Grand Mother Fanny Coats Preston. My Grandmother was raised by some of the Coats Family...
Thank you for any help or advise in advance!

|Roger Dimick||Lyle Dimick|
Carolyn, thank you for all the work you have done on Bluff View Cemetery. One comment which may have been written by you is "Lyle Dimick may not be buried in Bluff View". I assure you he is, but in some of the cemetery I have seen he is reported to be buried in the Horace Edwin Dimick plot. He is not there, because I have seen his grave. I was just at Bluff View this week and walked around specifically looking for his burial plot. He was not next to him mother and father, which I thought might be the case because (I think) Lyle never married. I was a small boy (five or six) when he passed away, and I remember "Aunt Mary" very well. She doted on me and other kids a lot that day. Wish I could give you the specific location, but it is in Bluff View. You and I are "shirt tail" relatives...not connected by blood...but we do have some commonality in our genealogies.
