Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history for 10+ years. Family names I am researching are:
St. Cin, Lanius, Spinks, Campbell, Compton, Reeves, Baker, Berkel, Fisher and many other related.
I enjoy going to the cemeteries. I like to be able to place flowers on the graves of people who have passed on. So many of these graves have been lost and or forgotten. I feel it is a blessing if I can help even a small few people find their lost loved ones.
I also like to imagine how and where people lived, some so very long ago.


I know 3 excellent guidelines for interacting with other people.

"Assume good faith."
"Use good manners."
"Don't bite the newcomers."

RE: Changes
I've been knee deep in this family for the past week; since I was starting from scratch I din't have any of this in my data base. There was a lot of basic information available through death certificates.

RE: Changes
I am researching the Rutledge family for my sister. William Rutledge married Martha Mueller and she ties to the Mueller and Sommerer families.

I roughed-in information about the Sommerer family with obituaries, census records and marriage books. Winston Rutledge loaned me a book titled "The Sommerer Family-Germany to America". It was published in January 2001. The information was compiled by Herbert Lorenz Sommerer and Margaret Katherine (Sommerer) Goe. It is thoroughly researched and meticulously documented.

I don't know if you can link, but William Lanius #103470624 is a son to John Jacob Lanius #91481046. Thanks!

My husband is a descendent of Henrich Lanius and my daughter is doing a research project for school. You have so much information listed as sources on his memorial. I wondered if you have the actual copies of these resources? Thanks so much for your help!

RE: Mrs Frank Canady or Emma Kanady
It could be Mrs. Frank Canady or Emma Kanaday or a variation of Canady, Canaday, Cannady, Cannaday, or Kanaday. The name change several times from my great grandfathers birth in 1890 to his death in 1993 the last changed was in the 1940's when they applied for my grandmother's birth certificate.

If you have any questions please email me at

Thank you,
