Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello! I have been working on my family genealogy/history for a number of years (!!) and would like to thank all those who have made contributions to Find A Grave....I finally got around to making contributions, at first involving mostly my 'immediate' family (450 memorials by now), but now mostly non-family.

Paternal ancestor surnames include: Wesley, Taylor, Randolph, Wilson, Huff, Craig, Smiley, Higgins, Pierce, Simpson, Goodall, Campbell, Carson, Downing, Minor, Ford, Aiken, Hampton, Amend, McMillan, McCollum, Trumbo, Custer, Brown, Sutherland & Hale.
Maternal ancestor names include: Garden, Spreng, Baird, Coble, Horner, Merckle, Young, Stoner, Matthews, Barrett, Clark, Holsworth, Witten, Brandenberry, Knosp, Faber & Wells.

Ancestry includes English, Scottish, Irish, French-Speaking Germans and German-Speaking Germans.

The current Findagrave project on which I have been heavily involved, with other contributors, is to create a complete listing of the burials of the Stafford (Kansas) Cemetery. Most of the names are established already. Now we are making links and adding marker photos and obituaries/biographies to the memorials. Making excellent progress.....!!

I'm sorry to be delayed in answering your edits and corrections....I had two major surgeries recently and so I am on the mend from all that....

The only other children I have listed are Wayne Lavern Gere (Memorial 114308875) and Homer Roy Gere (Memorial 93552568).
Homer was born 19 Oct 1909, died in Apr 1982 at Brookline Station, Greene County, Missouri. His wife's full name is Helen Nadine (Barragree) Gere, born 16 Mar 1914, died 9 Jan 1993.
I've linked their daughter, Jennie Nadine, to Homer and Nadine.

RE: Hine Simpson, 1861-1923
Your Hine Simpson was the son of George and Ann Simpson..As far as I know they have no memorials since none of us have been able to find where they died and were buried..We are still trying to find out..Your Hine's full name is Joseph Hine..Some where along the way he dropped his first name. Your Hine's son Hine, was my father in law and I am the creator his memorial..To make it even more confusing there is another Hine Simpson who is the nephew of my Hine Simpson and my Husband named his first born Hine SimpsonIII..If you are related to any of them I will be glad to share what little information I have on the family...Thanks for your quick reply!
Added by Gerre on Jul 11, 2014 3:35 AM
I would like for you to, if you can explain how to send a link so that you can link Hine Simpson to his son Hine Simpson...You're Hine Simpson is my husband, Hine Simpsons grandfather...Thanks for any help you may be able to give...
