Bio and Links

I became interested in Genealogy as a HS teenager, forty years ago, when these three factors came about at the same time: 1) I relocated to Champaign Co., OH to reside with a sibling. Initially and merely out of pure boredom and curiosity, I became interested in cleaning up an old, uncared for cemetery that was on our way to town and within Concord Twp., where I resided (Hamlet of Eris). 2) The 1977 television mini series, ROOTS, came on; and 3) my Birth Certificate (that I'd never seen or knew of the names on it), had arrived in the mail in order for me to obtain my driver's license. All three events came together like a tornado and thus I began my 39 year passion for GENEALOGY and love of history. It also lead me to the opportunity to be employed as a Probate Deputy Clerk for 12 years in Ohio, restoring several Cemeteries; initiated the Chartering of the CCGS of OGS in Ohio and assisted with that of Green Co., WI. I'm currently a member of several Southwestern WI genealogical and/or societies, but actively in Green, Lafayette and Iowa. I'm so thankful we now have F.A.G., which keeps me busy contributing names and information onto, for our future generations.

That Birth Certificate lead me to Mineral Pint, Iowa County, Wisconsin for my mother's Maternal side, who were all Catholic Irish and Scotch-Irish: COLLINS/CALLAN, GILMORE, RYAN, CROW(E),
McARDLE,CUNNINGHAM,CALHOUN,DUNBAR... and her Paternal English side: JACKSON, HARRIS, STEVENS, HEATH.... and West Virginia for my father: HEATHERLY, REEL, BOLTON, STOCKWELL, ANGLIN,McCLUNG,CARTER/CARDER,HOGBIN...,the majority of those took me back to Barbour, Harrison, Randolph and Greenbrier counties of West Virginia until the industrial revolution hit the mid west, and my grandparents, Wm. Boyd & Bertha (REEL)HEATHERLY left the mountains of Keyser, Mineral Co., WV, where their first child Edna was born, (Dec 20, 1906), struck out ca 1906-1910 for East Moline, Rock Co., IL, where my father, Carl Raymond Heatherly was born in 1910, where the industrial revolution was booming, as well as all through out the Great Lakes and the entire Midwest. In 2013, I learned he was first married to Shirley (Hutchinson/Hutchison)Riebe, the widow of Walter A. Riebe, Sr. Shirley and Walter had a dau., Iris Riebe b. ca 1930. *Last
My Foster Family names include: CALL, NICHOLS, PATTERSON, GOODWIN/GORDAIN, HARDY, NEVEL, O'BRIEN and CRAIG, all primarily of Rock, Dane, Richland, and Racine Counties of Wisc., some of Winnebago Co., IL.

*Prior to Huricane Katrina, I'd been in touch with my Calhoun cousin, Eunice Cunningham Calhoun Wymand, only to first loose her with her passing and then to loose track of her descendants when Katrina struck. Eunice's mother was my Gr. Gr. Grandmother's niece. Sadly I was not able to get my photos and Eunice's immediate family updated or assist them in identifying the box of photos that her son said he had. Can anyone help me to get back in touch with them again? Susie

Hi Susie,

Samuel Coad and his clan including mother Ann Kitto is a little more distant that the other Mineral Point COad, but I am about the closest living kin he has.

Can I have this one?
