Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a library media specialist at a public high school. During my studies as a graduate student I practiced my research skills by working on all branches of my family tree.

My surnames include but are not limited to Cottrell, Stipe, McPheeters, Nelson, Riechard, Hollenback, Jennings, Bucher/Booker, Campbell, Lemon, Robards, Roach, Riley, Laird, Spry, Farr, Lynn/Linn, Eaton, Ogden, Watkins, Cornelius, James, Cook, Hodgson/Hodson, Mackie, Pabst, Wright, Bowater, Underwood, Wells, Swanson, Willis, Hinish, Peck and Donahue.

Although I am not related by blood to the Tompkins or Lear families of Ralls County, Missouri I research these families in honor of my Great Aunt Mallie Pearl Tompkins Laird. There are no descendants for her husband, herself or any of her siblings. My goal is that her family not be forgotten. The surnames I work on for my Aunt Mallie's family are Tompkins, Lear, some Strode and some Maddox.

What I can I send you?

RE: Woollen
Two Harbors is 26 miles East of Duluth. It is a lovely town. I work for the CN railroad that services both the Two Harbors Docks and the Duluth Docks, as well as the mines in Northern MN.

Old New London is just to the west of the on- ramp to HWY 19 from Hwy 61. There is a grove of trees just off the ramp with the power lines, DOT right of way, cable TV, telephone, and whatever else buried right through it. When they made the right of way for the power, they bulldozed the stones out of the way and laid them in the fence row. Some are visible from the on ramp, but you have to go slow and know where to look. It is disgraceful. I'll let you know how the campaign goes.

You must live near the Southern WI border?

Go north out of Hannibal to Clear Creek Road and turn right(north) go about 2 miles.
I drove right up close. Would depend on whether it was wet or dry.

Yes- I would be happy to post the full obituary. It would be no problem & may mean a lot to the family.

It's been nice to collaborate with you. :)

RE: 1st Lt. Leigh Slates
My pleasure. Glad you and the family enjoy them. I sent additional photos of LT Slates to your email.
Believe me when I say that he was an American hero. He earned 7 Air Medals....almost unheard of!
Would love to see you update his bio with more info about him.
Take care,

RE: Shawanna Gayle Nelson
Well, I could cry, Heather...I, too, was fixated on finding this baby, but didn't think I would...guess God was guiding. We don't live any where around there, but were traveling cross-country. If you look at the map on the main page of Mount Olivet Cemetery on FindAGrave, you can make out that it's northern-most roads kinda form the shape of a camel. There are sections inside the camel's head and on both sides of it. Shawanna is inside the camel's head near the back of its neck...you can also see some other markers east of her in the cross shot...Toalson is one. Also, this section is mostly regular adult graves, but that back-of-the-camel's-head where Shawanna is is babies.

RE: Effie Swafford Winters
I was driving on HWY 61 South out of Muscatine at Wapello I turned onto Townsend Ave which turns into CR-G62 and drove about 3 or 4 miles. I turned left on to M Ave. and drove about 4 miles and when I crossed 50th street it was about .02 mile. It is out in the country and looked nice. There are many more graves than what is listed on line and many old old stones. We went to several cemeteries in the country that day and I used my GPS to find them all.

RE: John Hodgson 56980110
Heather,

I'm not certain where Naomi is buried, although it must be in North Carolina, probably Guilford County, considering that all her children were born there, as were most of John's children with his second wife, Sarah. John and Sarah probably moved to Ohio around 1807. Checking records of the Quaker meetings in Guilford County would be a good place to start to find Naomi.
