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

I come from a long line of Williams and Nicks. You darn near find more COads buried at Graceland than any other cemetery.
I pretty well think I am related to the whole town of Mineral Point. Coad, Oates, Osborne White. Ivey. Ansley. And those are just the ones I can remember off the top of my head.
Sorry to overwhelm you with all the info. Unfortunately some people won't add to some of my family plots. I hope to submit photos sometime. Have been scanning, but I have a couple thousand to go and haven't come across the graves yet.
Whittlesey is misspelled there, in California where Luther's wife and child are found in 1880 census and the other child, I believe is buried at Graceland with initials only, possibly near the Campbell, but I have not confirmed that one.
|William Coad||Luther Holly Whittlesey|
First of all thanks for adding all the information I sent you. Regarding Luther. He was divorced prior to 1880. And then appears he lef tone child with the former wife and the other with family in Chicago. He then went to New Orleans for several years and then Dayton, Ohio and a Hospital in DC. He showed up there with no money and no coat. Probably was seriously mentally and or physically ill as a result of the war. He was buried at St. Elizabeths East Cemetery near DC with a head stone provided. This was a civil war vets cemetery.

I saw from Barbra Munson's messages you mentioned him being in an insane inst. Most likely he was buried there if he died in it. Families during that time period were ashamed of family members who were locked in mental institutions which is why most institutional graveyards plots are unmarked for that reason.

What you see is all I found
|Barbara Munson||RE: Re: A.S. Badger Memorial #80446602|
I admit I cheated, Susie. I couldn't figure out how to find who the member was either, so I pretended to transfer the memorial to him. It popped up with his user name to verify I had the right member, then I clicked on his name to get to his page. :)
