Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi! I became interested in Genealogy as a HS teenager, 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, I became interested in cleaning up an old, uncared for cemetery that was on our way to town and within our Concord Twp. 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 35 + 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, helping to Charter two Genealogical Societies (Champaign Co., OH and one in Green Co., WI. I'm currently a member of several Southwestern WI genealogical and/or societies, but activly 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 Irish Catholic 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 throughout the Midwest.
My Foster Family names include: CALL, NICHOLS, PATTERSON, Goodwin/Gordain, and HARDY of Rock, Dane and Richland Counties of Wisc.

*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

Peter and Melinda Turner
Hi. I am very interested in connecting to any member of this family. I am assuming Susannah Turner from whom the pictures were obtained, is no longer with us - correct?
I am tied into this family through Tyree and have information regarding Melinda's family which I will gladly share. Can you help?

Thank you,

Revae Leppanen

Emma Wood Campbell died in San Francisco May 2, 1882. Her daughter Marion was living there with her at the time, but was only 25. Emma's father was still alive until 1886. Whether Marion was mature enough to ship the remains back or the father capable enough to make such arrangements is not know. For all I know she is buried in some unmarked grave in California. But since the Campbell plot at MP is not well marked and since Graceland records did not exist until 1966, who knows? I still suspect William Tucker COAD and his wife Marion Campbell Whittlesey might well be buried at the Campbell plot. Regarding the other stuff, will have to get back to that, am currently in major scanning project to share with new relatives. Yes Mineral Point is both my and my wife's favorite place. After all more or my relatives are buried there than any other place, short of St. Stephen in Brannel, Cornwall.

RE: Re:: Milo T. Burgess
I don't understand as the baby's memorial has a link to his father's.

RE: E.J.Campbell
Thank you for all your help. Guess I haven't figure that one out yet. Am probably through with changes, but may at some time have picture to add. Can you tell me the easiest way to do that.
