Bio and Links
Bio Photo Short and sweet:

My health often gets in the way of things but I do check my messages very often and I do my best to maintain current and accurate memorials.

I send far more edits than transfer requests. This means that I often spend hours looking up extended family and sending those page owners the family links. I also send biographical information, dates, etc. for pages I have no intention of asking for.

To me the important person here is THE DECEASED and that is something we should all remember.

Please do not upload images of my hand written Biographies of the deceased onto other websites. The main reason is that sometimes I make changes and rewrite them, as my research reveals new information. If you upload a static image, or a story under your own name, then I can never edit that to match the current version.

And yes, the other reason is proper credit. If you think credit does not matter, then please, make your own work available and put no stipulations on how or where it is used. Most people who upload other people's work under their own names, never do so.

If you have a question or want help, ask.

Thank you to all of the helpful people here. You truly are angels. 99 percent of the people I have 'met' in my family history research have been wonderful.

To the others: You will catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

Thank you for contacting me to make the links for the Hodges family in Perry Cemetery located in Pike County, IL. Please take another look and see if all the changes you requested have been made and let me know if you see anything else that needs to be done. Thank you.

RE: Marriage
I keep forgetting to tell you I have a copy of George & Mary Groshong Campbell's 'marriage license'; it is written on brown wrapping paper, along with a small note from her father, Samuel Groshong, giving permission. I think she was only 14 or so. I'd have to look at my records to see for sure. It is almost faded beyond reading and very delicate. Our clerk's office was very kind to take it out and let me photograph it.

Sure, I can transfer the memorial. Penny was a classmate of my wife and a counselor for a daughter but you can certainly have the memorial.

Geo and Polly Campbell Marriage
I just had a thought. Their marriage was the first in Ursa Township and maybe that was what was referred to in some of the articles. Maybe the writer didn't clarift between Township and County of Adams. Who knows.

There's no hurry on anything. I just gave that info for your benefit since I know you've had problems with that family line. Yes, there are several articles in books that state the marriage as the 1st and 2nd. I was surprised to find the earlier marriage too, because the local Campbell families claim George/Mary as the first in the info they've shared with me. It seems nit picky for 3 wks. It's neither here nor there to me, except to try to report the most correct info.

I was going through my gravestone pictures and ran across JP Russell's stone and that led to checking that I had uploaded it; then checked his mom and dad's. I always enjoy reading obits or info that has been posted. I can learn a lot about our area and families from them.

I do keep your family name in mind when going through documents or pictures. Have a good day. Rosie II

I'm sorry, you certainly misunderstood; it is not offending to me. The court house records show David Ray and Rachel Thomas married on 7.23.1825, which is 3 weeks before George and Mary were married on 8.18.1825. If you have other documentation, I'd appreciate a copy or such, as I'm including that information in research on the New Providence Cemetery and Old Stone Church that I'm working on. Anything you share will be much appreciated.

I too, have seen George/Mary's marriage listed as the first and second in Adams Co. That's why I went to the court house records. Thank you. Rosie II

Thank you for the information on James and Malinda. I already have all of that information in my tree. It's their parents where I have run into a brick wall. Is there any documentation to suggest that John Winner and Hester Mason Winner had a son named James?

John and Hester Ann Mason Winner
I'm trying to research my Winner family, but am stuck on my third great grandfather. I stumbled across the information you have on the above mentioned Winner, and am wondering if there is any documentation indicating another son named James A, born in 1813, and married to Malinda Wilkinson/Wilkenson/Wilkerson?

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I'm really stuck.

Thank you, Annette
