Bio Photo Please help me process your edit requests by sending me a personal email to alert me that you have sent through a correction if you see that it has been a few days and the changes did not take place. With the new system there are no notices sent to the contributors that there are edits waiting to take place and we usually have to randomly stumble across them, or check daily.
I am an amateur "genie" researching many family lines in both my husband's and my own family.

During the summer of 2010, we re-traced the path of the wagon trains that brought our families out to Kansas, which took us through MO-IL-OH-PA. During our trip we not only visited the Historical Societies, but also many cemeteries where we cleaned or uncovered headstones, took photos, and documented the information for not only our records, but for future generations.

HEADSTONE PHOTOS: My husband and I have spent considerable time, and in some instances driving great distances, battling weeds, heat, rain, bugs and critters to take these photos. Saying that...please feel free to use any photo for your family records. Please be respectful and do not re-post to any other memorials on FAG or any other public grave website. Should you find any questionable information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This summer 2014 we are working on Lincoln Cemetery in Lebo, Kansas and Arvonia Cemetery in Arvonia, Kansas.

My husband's family lines are: Clewell, Cryder, Clester, Brink, Donley, Dixon, Derrick, Downs, Reid

My family lines: Hitchcock, Higgins, Homire, Heskett, Van Buskirk, Meek, Robinson

Happy hunting!

You have her listed as buried in Aux Sable Cemetery and state "No stone"
Well the reason there is no stone is she is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery and there is a stone (see findagrave #84747538)

RE: Corum / Coram family
Hi Nancy,
The SACís have been approved. Thanks for submitting them. For some reason I do not get email alerts for them. I do check every few days though. Please send a message if you have processed any & I will look at them. To my knowledge, any connection to the Coram, Courumís would be most likely through marriage like Edna Booker who is a 4th cousin, once removed. Some of my lines in Union & Claiborne County include but not limited to Burnett, Hopper, McBee, Shoffner & Miller

Hello Nancy!
I seen that you are the 2nd Cousin 4x removed to Eliza. So am I! I just thought I would try to contact you and see if you would be interested in swapping info. I do not have a whole heck of a lot, but am working on the Pickel side. I was surprised to see they left Lancaster and went to Virginia. Any idea when that may have occurred? I have a facebook page of Ancestor Keeper. And a professional genealogical Facebook page. Ancestors of Lancaster County, PA Genealogy on Facebook. Hope to see you there! Give me a shout at or give me a call at 717-875-0405. Talk soon cousin!

Fife family
Do you happen to know about the Meade/Hardin Co., Ky. Fifes, specifically Commodore Perry Fife and his wife Drusilla Wright? Commodore is a brother to Robert Ezra Fife's father.

Walter 'Roy' & Donna Johns headstone
I have double checked my source, Roy's sister who is my sister-in-law, and they are both buried in her parents' plot of Walter and Emma Johns in Reading Cemetery.

That was really fast!! Thank you for posting the picture. She was my sister-in-law. Her husband was here for the Small Reunion this past weekend.

'no stone found' added under note. Now I know what three stars beside the name mean, in the cemetery record book I was looking in. The marker pictured in 'Catalpa Trees and Memories' belongs to Henrietta, John and their little son Arthur. I assumed it belonged to Emma.

RE: Clester connection
Hi Nancy, I don't have any information on the Clesters, but I do have some photos of my great grandmother Margaret Ann Clester on my Ancestry Family Tree. By the time I got interested in genealogy, both of my parents had passed. You're welcome to email me and I will send you a link to Margaret.
