Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love family history and connecting with other amateur genealogists. I live in northwest Nebraska. I'm researching Turner, Fairchild, Mahan, Waters, Pollard, Stockman, Woodruff, Kellogg, Kelly, McCall, Gunderson, Harnett, Spurway, Woodbeck, Squires, Kuk, and Greene, to name a few.

Find-a-grave has been very helpful in my family research. I love helping others find out more about their families, too.

I have entered people who are not related to me so just send me a transfer request and I will gladly transfer to you if you are a close or distant related family member of their's.

I believe that a relative's memorial should be with family, not with strangers. I believe that these memorials need to be with people who knew and loved them.

Please use the "edit" button on the memorial when you are requesting a transfer or sending corrections.

Sept. 3, 1927- Jan. 7, 2014 A loving mother and devoted wife, Eddie passed away peacefully at home. She was preceded in passing by her husband, John, and grandson, Evan, and is survived by her four children: John Goins, Martinez, CA; Lorenzo Goins, Hamilton VA; Marlene Windel, Wasilla, AK; JoAnn Scott, San Diego, CA, as well as grandchildren: Jessica Taylor, Amorie Coelho, Marianne Goins, Melissa Windel; great-grandchildren: Stephen and Fiona Taylor. Faithful in all friendships, Eddie will long be held in memory for her joyful spirit and generous nature. She cheered the LA Dodgers avidly, tended her flower garden blissfully, and turned down no chance to go fishing. We shall greatly miss her compassionate determination to nurture and uphold the best in us all. A Celebration of Life service will be held on January 16, 1:00, at Mt. Vernon Memorial Park, 8201 Greenback Ln, Fair Oaks, CA.

I received your e-mail and note that your did, in fact, transfer Rhonda to me. I have added an updated bio to her. Rhonda is the mother of two other records which you may transfer to me if you'd like: Susan M. (Merchant) Tripp (#139608065) and James E. Merchant (#139608055). As you will see in Rhonda's bio, according to US and NYS census records, she was the mother of twelve children most of whom I've been able to trace. Thanks for what you do. I've been working on genealogy for 5-6 years and am really interested in the subject.

Rhoda M. Merchant, Record #139608065
Good afternoon.
I believe the subject record is incorrect. You have Rhoda as a daughter of Philo and Hannah Merchant. I believe this person is actually Rhoda M. (Williams) Merchant, wife of Levi Merchant. I have obtained a clipping from which contains a death notice from 1872 for Rhoda M. Merchant, widow of Levi Merchant.

Let me know if you want a copy of the document forwarded to you, and if so, how to get it to you.

Thank you.
