Bio and Links
I am interested in the families descending from Elder Jacob Cropsey, John Murray, Aspinwall P. Straight, Asahel Chillson, Isaac Gilbert, Silas Bowen, Benjamin Bridge, and Consider Hyland. I have lots of family info on these lines. I'm also interested in the family of John and Bridget McQuaid of Wisconsin and Alois Schaumberg of Mineral Point WI.

I have 163 unidentified photos of people from these families on a Pinterest board at http://www.pinterest.com/prairieflowers2/who-am-i/. If you have photos of these families, would you look at the board and see if you can identify any of them. One of my genealogical goals is to get names on all the old photos.

RE: Prairie Flowers
Thank you! My best story is an early 1900 picture of a father, mother, daughter, their gas station turned into a hot dog stand, that turned into a restaurant, in Ohio, of all places, and it is still open! It now proudly sports the photos we found. The photo was found in central California.

Brilliant!!! We collect old family photos where ever we go in hopes to some day find the family. Very, very few actually get home. Your posting on Pinterest was a stroke of pure brilliance!!! I so sincerely hope you do not mind my doing the same.

I added John's parents per your request. If you're related to him, I'll be glad to transfer the maintenance. I also added a birth date that was calculated using death date and age at death.

RE: Nicholas Byram
Glad you were able to find a few leads in the bio. I'm a direct descendant of Nicholas by way of Susan (Byram) Edson, daughter of Nicholas Byram.

RE: Crapser Family
Hi diane,
yes their youngest son Elias is my gggg grandfather. I have been researching that side of my family for about 5 yrs. Any information you have I will gladly appreciate. I've gone to a few of the cemeteries that my ancestors are buried in to pay my respects. Through those trips i was able to link a few unknown family members. I know at one time there was a family bible, i believe written in german, that had all the descendents from johannes and charity written in. But it was not passed down to my line. Thanks for getting in touch with me. You can contact me through my profile pg or email. Nrpizz@aol.com
have a great day :)
Sincerely,
noreen

RE: Boice Restaurant
Thank you for writing: Yes, they not only had Maude Eleanor (1888-1926), but also Martha Clarinda (1883-1960)in addition to Julia Samantha (1885-1935), Ella Hortense ((1886-1942), and Mary Eliza "Iza or Liza" (1889-1944).

The Boice Restaurant photo appeared in the Greybull Standard years ago and my wife happened to see it in the Greybull Museum a few years ago so I started looking for a copy, of which Tom Davis, who wrote the book, "Glimpses of Greybull's Past", supplied to me.

If you are familiar with Frank and Ella,I also have a transcript of Ella's diary written during their wagon move from Manassa to Basin in 1901if you are interested.

I hope this helps.

RE: Margaret Burghardt
Hi Dianne,

I was trying to read the headstone inscription from the picture that I took today and from what I could read, the date of death was March 6(or 16), 1879 and she was 73 years 4 months. I didn't see any Burghardts next to her marker. I will be going back over to St. Mary's in the coming days and photographing the entire cemetery (adding them to Find A Grave).

Yours Truly,
LeRoy A.
