Bio and Links
Have been doing family research several decades. Researching several family lines including Berry, Chadd, Christmas, Cooksey, Defoe, Hall, Lewis, Nance, Ramming, Richardson, Sanders, Shepherd and Whiteman. Most of these family lines were originally in Virginia or North/South Carolina and migrated to Missouri in the mid to late 1800s via Kentucky/Tennessee/Indiana.

RE: Arthur R Kingham
Elaine, thank you for your offer. I do have what info I need on Arthur. I have gone as far with my research as I planned to go. I spent 2 1/2 years of steady research and now will let it rest. I am up in years and my eyes can't handle that much computer any more. Thank you again. Jan H

RE: Arthur R Kingham
Elaine, I think Arthur may have had a brother but not sure but of course he would be dead by now. Art and Maggie never had children. He was on my husbands side of the family and anyone that would have been interested in that have long since passed on too. I am pretty sure you have the right person but think it is pretty much of a dead end. Without children there isnt much chance of finding anything. Not sure where there possessions went. It has been a long time.

RE: Arthur R Kingham
Elaine, it is probably our Arthur. He was serving in 1941. He was a career officer. I didn't research him much as he is the 1 cousin 1x removed of my husband. He was my mother in laws first cousin. I did meet him in the 60's. He was born 23 Oct 1906 in MN and died 3 Apr 1979. His wife was Margaret Nancy Kingham (dont have her maiden name. They never had children. My mother in laws name was Blanche Smith Harris. I have no way of knowing for sure if it is the same person, but I would guess it probably is. I do know that he was in Pearl Harbor when it was bombed. I've been away from genealogy for the past 2 years and at this time I don't remember Arthur's rank but do remember he was a fairly high ranking officer. Hope this helps somehow. It is the only information I have. I am no longer a member of Ancestry.com. Jan H

RE: Mary Ann Ramming
Well, that was confusing. You know I am always trying to do the right thing. I will delete the other one. Thank you for your help. I appreciate it. I love all the volunteers on find a grave.

Hi Elaine,

yes, I transferred one to you but notice the the one has a family member named who contributed information. If you add her contribution and site her as the source I will delete the second one. Notice I posted the two on the same date of June 10, 2009. This is the only fair way to have only one and both get source info. Have you ever contacted her to see how she is related to you?

Good job Elaine...this is going up and beyond but you know I appreciate real researchers like you. When we get to our reward in Heaven, I hope they say we had good sources. LOL

I left the following message for KTC, and I guess it should have been left for you!

You have posted a photograph of F. Lavina Webb on her memorial site and I presume that with her in that photograph is her husband, William Webb. William Webb is the brother of my GG Grandmother Mary Ellen Webb Howard Streit (1849-1936). My mother remembers him as "Uncle Will", a tall nice looking old gentleman. If that is William Webb, how did you find that picture? Do you know its history? We have almost no information about their parents. Thank you so very much for any information you may have.

RE: Martin Freshour
I have that book. It was given to me years and years ago. It's not always right and no the Martin stone was not found when Ella F was found. Many of the old stones were vandalized and before Dean King started his work were thrown in the woods and used for farm stones. Martin's stone has not been found yet. You did notice that Freshour was spelled two different ways. Be sure and let me know if you find updates and additional documentation. Isn't it fun to keep their memory and share with others? Take care!
