Bio and Links
Bio Photo I first discovered the fun and challenges of genealogical research just in 2010, starting with a tree sent by a cousin in England. Since then I have been on a mission to find as many family members, both dead and alive, as I can. I have connected with living cousins all over the country and even new ones in the UK.

More recently I've obtained extensive genealogical notes from my paternal great-grandmother that she accumulated over her 97 years. I'm on a mission to find and connect them on FAG as I add them to my tree. It has gone from 0 to 2063 people in just over a year with her help!

It has been a fascinating journey!! I am pulling together family info to share in several ways, including virtual cemeteries here, geni trees and google sites. I am happy to help anyone else when I visit cemeteries containing my family and/or nearby my home if I can.

Major family lines include Alkes/Elkes, Klepper, and Fenster from Europe; Knapp, Becroft, Burbidge, Nott, Clark, Summers, Whittaker and Williams from CT; Culver, Ford and Kuykendall out west; and Archambault, Marcher, Provost, Nolan, Flanders from VT. I'm hoping my efforts here serve generations to come. Special thanks to Barb Destromp in VT and Jan Franco in CT who have created so many of my family memorials before I knew they were family!! Barb in particular has made hundreds of corrections for me I think!

I haven't created many that are not my family or friends but I'd be happy to transfer to someone who wants to take good care of them.

Happy Family Hunting!

Anna Roach
Sorry, but I don't have any further info about her. They do seem to be two different people, however, with "mine" having maiden name Kruger, apparently, and yours Lowrey--plus born three years apart.

Re: Roaches in St. Bernards
Thank you. I am not a direct relative but, they are in my family tree. As for my sources, yes, I have the obits. If you would like them, I can send them to your e-mail address.
For future reference, a good source of obits is the Fulton History site: It has newspapers for New York State and other places. It is a free site.
I am more than happy to provide you with obits. Let me know which ones you would like.

Samuel Hale [123920346]
Hi Judi,

I imagine calling this son Samuel is something I picked up on the internet years ago when I was a rookie. I have changed the name to "son" and made note of the undocumented (as far as I know) name of Samuel.

Thanks for catching that.

RE: Fanny Thompson sons etc
Good morning. Thanks for your note. Apologies for the typos toward end of my note to you! Auto-correct on my phone makes nonsense on occasion and I didn't pause to proofread.

Fanny Thompson sons etc
Thank you for your note. I didn't read much past the first couple of paragraphs so I apologize for giving you info you already have. The cemetery transcription from the Hale collection has the one son listed as William Rufus. The name on Fanny's gravestone definitely states William Augustus. What I don't know is if they are also buried there or if their names were on her gravestone to give a mini biography. Was her father Israel Knapp buried in that cemetery? The Hale collection transcription lists Israel. Again, I wonder if it is because his name ip(and her mother's) papers on fanny's gravestone. Are you related? Your name leads me to believe so. Happy Summer.

RE: Walburga Schuh
Sorry about the name change. I'm trying to update all of my family from a mobile app. I probably hit a wrong button. Walburga Schuh is my great great grandmother. I have some more information to update on that side of the family so maybe that will be helpful.
