I have been doing family research since the mid 1970's and have been able to gather a good sized collection of family information working along with cousins as well as my own personal research. I grew up in Harrison County, Missouri and have many family connections in Harrison and Mercer counties, as well as central/southern Iowa. Paternal lines: Beeson/Lilly/Parrish/Briant Maternal lines: Banks/Dinsmore/Bradley/Freeze Email message or public messages are most welcome.
Thanks for double checking and verifying what I was seeing. I know I have had quite a few sites transferred to me. Normally I am adding just the name, dates of birth, etc. If there are notes, I just leave them until I can really sit down and do some research. Other times people notify me with the need for a correction. It is easy to get things mixed up.
Also, you can remove these public messages when they are no longer needed. I had a ton of correspondence that I took care of or got answered that just was not needed anymore, so I deleted.
Right now I will be working on the Sparks Family adding them into my family tree. I also have a cousin in the tree, who is working on the same group of family. I see he has added family and information, linking family members, adding pictures, etc. It has been fun to find another family member who loves to do the same thing. We have traded information back and forth. Too, bad we do not live in the same part of the country, I am on the West Coast and he is on the East Coast.
Thanks again for your help, I will probably be working with you again.
Squires in Odessa Cemetery I have transferred the Smiths in Sentinel to you. The Gotebo and Odessa Cemeteries have my family in them and am working on a project that includes them. If you want to add information for the Squires, I will be glad to accept it or you can use the Edit function.
Bonnie Weed No problem! I found an obituary for Sallie Smith. Maybe you could add it to the memorial? ------------------------------------

RE: Violet Isobel Smith WOLFF Well, I had to turn into my idol, Nina Beeson... I found a little stash of photos and I didn't know who they were! I finally figured out they were family photos sent to my mom (probably related to my mom through the Smith line) by Violet. I have posted them on her page, her husband's page and also found two sisters. Would you like the originals? I would be so happy to send them to you. Suzanne
