Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Spokane, WA, 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 in the Severson family as my brother and I both have a set of twin granddaughters.. 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.

RE: Henry Draper
Yes, that helps a lot. Thank you. I have a meeting to go to now but will add the information tonight when I get home.

Henry Draper
It is silly to reinvent the wheel, I agree. I just want to be sure the link is correct before I insert it. I have inserted information for people before and then found out it was not correct.

I looked it up on ancestry and family search but didn't see anything that linked Henry to Minnie, although I am sure you are right.

Please give me a link to see where Henry is related to Minnie Cottrell. I found information about Rueben and Oliver but there was no mention of Henry. I didn't find any information on either that would link them. Once I have that information I will link Henry to his mother and siblings.

Thank you for sending me information on Henry's mother. Before I add information I receive from people I like to see the source it came from to be sure it is correct information.

If you will kindly let me know the source of your information I will follow through and be glad to add the correct information.

Thank you for your hard work.

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!
