Since my youth I have been interested in the history of my family. I have found cousins and relatives in past generations from California, Georgia, Michigan, NY and states in-between. Many of my related families have kept and shared 'keepsakes' from our different family lines for many years. With all the electronic equipment available we can actually see how we all link together on these different branches of our tree. I would like to get our ‘families' tree as complete as I can so it will be filled with knowledge and memories for future generations. My interest in Genealogy has truly made me realize that "IT'S A SMALL WORLD, AFTER ALL"
I would appreciate if anyone wanting to use pictures or any personal information which I have posted would have the courtesy to ask before using them on any internet genealogy site. I am not selfish and more than willing to share with relatives of my families (ONLY) but PLEASE ask first.
At this time my interest lies in the families of Roberts/Clickner/Walker/Woodmansee/Taylor/O'Neil Warner/Orr/Reed/Pitney/Barnhart Sheel/Wolverton/Norris/Durbin/Beu
**************** The tragedy of 2012 that happened in Aurora, Colorado was a terrible incident and the names of the victims will always be remembered.
Did you see the amazing families of the victims of the Charleston shooting? What amazing forgiving people. In forgiveness there is healing. Our Prayers and thoughts go out to the community of Charleston and the families of the victims. Bless You! So much better than the let's burn down the community reaction!
RE: Delbert Larry Beaman Hi Max I have transferred his memorial to you,I agree even a small family connection deserves to manage a memorial feel free at anytime you find a memorial I have you wish to manage,the only stipulation is the Find A Grave. Rule that should someone related closer request you for that memorial to be transferred to them you should transfer to them. Have a great day and good luck with your research.
I can't begin to thank you, it truly is a small world that we live in. This morning I received a package from Pat Scott, that had an amazing amount of information. There was information that even my mother had not seen, and I can't wait to share it with her! I now have pictures of my grandmothers graduation, and pictures of my great-grandparents. I also have a very detailed list so that I can continue to build my family tree. I loved my Aunt Thelma,(We called her Auntie) and grandmother to pieces. For many years they were neighbors in Syracuse, Kansas and I have so many great memories of them both. My great-uncle Clifford passed shortly after I was born, so I never got to meet him. I will continue, and will definitely reach out to you if I have more questions. Hope for a speedy recovery on your knee, and take care!
Thanks again Max! You truly can't understand how much you have helped me on my journey.
RE: Ida Orr Thanks for the info. I didn't know about this until Sue said she thought Ida was in Meta and not where she ended up. I guess nobody put the 2 names together and figured it was the same lady. Finding her 2 kids there just sealed the deal.
I still wonder if Knetcal is wrong for the name, as most of them used Knatcal?
'Course, I have family where every-other person in 1 family was Jester, and not Jaster. Families?! Huh!
My Name is Travis Nance. Thelma Warner was my great-aunt, and Verna (her sister) was my grandmother. Both were sisters of Erwin. I wasn't sure if you were aware or not but in 1999, a book was published by Pamela Riney-Kehrberg entitled "Waiting On The Bounty" which showcased their lives during the dustbowl years in Kendall, Kansas. This book, and your updates has helped me to piece together my family and find out more about my great-grandparents. My mother Kathy Nance, was an only child to Verna and Wayne Gragg, so I have very little to go off of. Thank you so much for your work, and sharing what you have found ~ God Bless
