Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Spokane, WA, but am in Yuma, AZ from Nov 1 to April 1. I have been researching the Severson-Cottrell-Shaver-Greenman-Newton and many other family names for close to 40 years. About 10 years ago, I found my Latter Day Saint connection with the Clawson family. My 3rd Gr. Grandparents were Moses and Cornelia Brown-Clawson. So now I'm researching that branch of my father's family too. I got involved in doing genealogy because my grandmother, Nettie Cottrell-Severson,had so much information written down everywhere, it was hard to sort out. She had numerous note books, and all kinds of family papers.Maybe one day I'll publish our work.

I work this hobby into my busy life, as I am a grandmother of 6. We have twinning in this family and at this time have 3 sets of twins. I am a quilter and a member of a United Methodist Church in Spokane, WA. I have been married for 44 years this summer (1970). I have a M.S. degree in Biology and I keep tabs on plants on our 40 acres of fir and pine timber land in Lincoln Co., WA.

When you send links you need to make sure they are the right numbers. You sent me his brother Jesse and some Eugene Cottrell. I found his parents and linked him up, but it was a mess for awhile. Penny

Sorry - but the links to siblings are being made by Find A Grave / Ancestry.

There seems be a glitch somewhere - because- when Ella is linked to her parents Ella shows up as a sibling to herself. Will wait a few days and see if/and/when the glitch is repaired before trying the links again.

RE: Arnold Preston
You shared Rebecca's death certificate with me. I love the entry for Duration of Disease "was not sick 10 minutes"

My more immediate relatives are generally not octogenarians so I hope I pass on the Prestons' and Bremners' longevity to my kids, but my husbands family is full of oldies so perhaps one way or the other . . .

RE: Arnold Preston
We have 2 boys, John, 45, and Matt, 42. John has 2 girls, 9 and 6; Matt has a boy, 14, and a girl, 10. All of them are the best things that ever happened to me. We also have the best daughters in law possible.

You have had more than your share of sadness, but you certainly are lucky to have connected with your first daughter. How wonderful!

Lydia Cottrell
I have no information that would indicate there is an unmarked grave next to Lydia. When I photographed this little Cemetery I did not have the access I wanted to the Townships burial records. There are many unmarked graves in that cemetery, however they are not in the same plot as Lydia. The plot she is in, B.13.4, has 4 other names; Ernestine Leipold 1845-1920, Fred Leipold 1880-1964, John Leipold 1845-1938, Lilli Leipold 1880-1947. It would be my thinking maybe she was related in some way to the Leipold Family. They were some of the first settlers in Sago Township. All of the Leipolds I have listed have markers.
If you would like to have Lydia's marker photo added let me know. If you would like the memorial transferred to you so you can add a bio etc. I would be happy to. Even though we have over a foot of snow on the ground and it is -20 below "0" this morning I can do the posting as I have all the photo's on a CD.

RE: Arnold Preston
I don't know why, but I LOVE the name Duncan. It would have been a little clunky when we were naming our boys +40 years ago but still, so Scottish.

RE: Arnold Preston
I am Luther's 2nd great granddaughter. He married a Scot and we went to Scotland to find her roots, first. That was a thrill but I had some of his records, too.

Linda, Since you have been a member for 3 years you must know that the way to ask for transfers is through the edit button. Since I work with many cemeteries that is the easiest way to know I am transferring the right person. I will be happy to transfer that way. Penny

RE: Chester H. Shurtleff
Hi, Linda,

I have deleted the memorial for Harold Chester Shurtleff (Harold Chester, according to his draft registration of 12 Sep 1918).

I plan to retain management of the Shurtleff family members that I have created at F/G as they are part of my family tree as well. If, at some point I see that I cannot continue to do so, I will transfer to you.

Sincerely, Linda Ames
