Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been collecting family stories for many years and am finally at a place where the threads of the quilt have come together; ready for assembly and display. Honored by my oft' times 'crazy' family, I continue chasing 'white rabbits' and have made more than one error in my conclusions. I ask only that people let me know if a perceived error is discovered. I am always pleased to correct family records. It is as important for me as I trust it is for each of you.


I decline to give permission to use my photos for resale, for profit, or to upload to a different web site.


I will happily transfer ownership of memorials to family members provided the memorial is unrelated to my own genealogy research.

*** PLEASE send any requests for edits or transfers from the edit link on the memorial you want me to look at. Remember to include your F.A.G. member number. ***

Thank you for your understanding.

RE: Bumps, Bumpas, Bompasse Family
Are you related to the Bumps families in China? I used to work with Bev & Bonnie Bumps who were cousins.

RE: Alice M Bradford Street
Hi Tari, Thank you so much for your message. I did not know that Charles Street and Alice divorced, I could never find any information on what happened to her and I assumed that she had died. Please let me know where I can find info on the divorce, and any further info about her, I am very interested.
Thank you again, Catherine

RE: bradfords
Thank you for your prompt response, I am very interested in the Bradford/Miller/Ohio connection you spoke of. I do not use Ancestry. I am searching for Lydia Bradfords
grave and date of death. I believe that she
died before her second husband, John F Bradford (1906) The 1900 census said he was a widower. I am also interested in seeing if there are other descendants. I have not found any yet. She had 1 son with her first husband, Thomas Miller, I would also like to find his grave. I think he died in 1869 or so in Missouri. The family came from Brown County, Ohio around 1868. I descend from the son of Lydia and Thomas. Lydia had several other children with John Bradford. Can find no traces of some of them. Would love to know. thanks Donna

My name is Donna Zeller. I am researching
my great great grandmother, Lydia Jane Bradford, she was born around 1845-1850, in Ohio, she married Thomas Miller, he died, around 1869, and she married John Fletcher Bradford, he (bradford) is buried at Shafer Cemetery, Texas county, Mo. I wish to find her, and have had no success. They had several children, I can't find any descendants of her other than my family. It would be great to find out what happened to her. I am a descendant of Lydia and husband number 1. They had a son named Charles E. Miller. Any info you may have would be greatly appreciated. I believe in 1900 census John is listed as a widower. Can you help?

Olivet requests
this is an easy cemetery to do photos at.
I will be happy to go out and take photos for you but you need to call the office to get the grave location.
post to the memorial and send me a message and I will get it done.

I transferred the memorial to Frank and Mattie Green to you. I have a lot of information on the Bolt's and would be glad to share with you. My Grandmother was a Bolt and told me some of her family was Cherokee but I have never been able to find any Native Americans in her family. My email is

RE: Benjamin Trobaugh Roos

I don't know what the name change is about but I had Benjamin as a son of John Trobaugh from the census and other sources I don't recall at this time. His brother's obit (see 50884258) mentions brother Benjamin Ross living in CA. Must mean ROOS.

RE: Kenneth E Green
Happy to help. It was one in my stock pile of pictures I had already taken a while back. When I go I try to take a bunch in case somebody requests them, I have them available. I know how much I appreciate others who fill my requests and a quick response is always a special nice. :)

RE: James Henry Babcock
More info found: James died in July 1919 after jumping off a ship off the coast of Long Island, according to news articles. He had opened restaurants in Portland, San Francisco and elsewhere on the Pacific one point his R.I. relatives thought he died in the quake. Also, his draft registration is on Familysearch and has he and Louise living in Portland. DOB he gives is Jan. 18 1873. Still no info on the child.
