Bio and Links
As many others here, I have been bitten by the genealogy bug, which brought me here in the first place. If I have posted information or photos you are interested in, please feel free to copy and use them to remember our loved ones. I would ask you note me as a source only so other's may also find me.

Surnames I am researching are Chamberlin fr NY->IL->MI->SD, Cunningham, Butterfield, Padgett, Strange, Johnson and Seal, in IL, MI, MN, IN and SD primarily and related Indiana families and Maryland League. For those not familiar with the MD League, there were about 30+ Catholic families that made a pact to move from MD to KY. Many later moved to IN.

Fallon Ireland->NY->OH->MN&WA. Philby/Filby England->PA->IA & WA.

Brennan and Walsh and related families of Springfield and Chicago, IL

And Jackson, Ross, Traywick, Whittle, Williams, Stegall, Helms, Griffin, Morgan & their connections such as Austin, Little, Staton, Maness, Caudle, Coburn, mostly in NC, but some crossed that line into SC. And as you know, the names keep growing :)

Thanks to those that have made my journey easier by posting their families. I would love to connect and compare.

In particular, I have many unidentified photos from NC and SC that I would like to put names to, so PLEASE contact me if you are a Ross/Whittle/Foley/Williams/Helms/Griffin/Morgan descendent as I may have photos you can help me name.

I am still gloomy after losing my beloved Harley

Lisa ~ Great news! I found Nadine when I was at the cemetery office today. Her name when she was interred was Nadine Swailes. I did a quick search when I got home to verify it was her, and there is a SS death record for her (last address was in Washington state). Good luck! Sheri Ross

I'm sure you must be right. Even though my records show KY, I'm sure it's IN, too.

RE: Carlyle Wurster
Thanks for the reply. I guess I'll have to contact the Humboldt county courthouse to see where she is buried. I would guess that a couple of others in her family are buried there as well. Letha was one of 6 children of Monroe Robert Hoskins. You can see him on Find A Grave and see others in his family. Belva was the youngest and a real spitfire right up until she passed. She gave everyone she knew a $2 bill that was to used for her remembrance party. The Hoskin family was a well to do family coming from a line of furniture makers, funeral homes, bankers and lawyers. Robert's wife Etta Hadley was from another well to family. Bankers and other professions. I have the Hoskin's family back to 1664 but can't load them all in Find A Grave because I don't know where some are buried. Do you know anything about Jane Wurster, Phyllis's sister? If you would like more info on the Hoskin family, let me know. I would be glad to share it with you.

My brother in law was married to Belva Hoskins daughter, Mary Etta. I did most of the Hoskins tree for them but have a couple of stumbling blocks, Carlyle's family and Letha's burial location.

Appreciate any help you can give.

RE: Philby family Sioux City
I checked the directory for Dawson, Owens, Norton and Philby, and do not see her, so I will add it to my list of 'missing' persons on the directory. I want to identify all I can ~ directory is useless if you can't find your person! I'll let you know what I find out. Sheri

Hi Lisa ~ I transferred the Philby's to you, & now have add'l info for you: all are in Sec 11, Lot 181. Interment dates: Bert, 7/9/1927; John 9/29/1937; Lola 6/14/1957; Stella 3/6/1986. Also, I do not see Nadine listed as Philby or Norton ~ any other name it might be? I am working with cem director to correct directory errors, so any help appreciated on Nadine. Thanks! Sheri Ross
