Bio and Links
I am a descendant of Roland Hankins m Mary Elizabeth Davison. Roland and his second wife Barbara (sister to Mary) are buried in Silvies Cem. Grant Co Ore. I was born 2 Mar 1948 and am a family genealogist since a child. I lived with my grandparents who were cousins. I was left Grandma's family trunk of six generations that overlapped photo albums and old letters. Roland parents were Daniel Hankins Jr. m Anna Collier I have their Bible records, ten children to family tree. I am writing a book on Hankins pioneer travels from Va to present. Would like any contacts with cousins far and near. Have list of who is buried in Silvies Cem and who parents were. Hiram Reynolds was a trapper from Mo and Kansas who traveled with Roland's two brothers, Amos and Enos Hankins, westward. Daniel b 30 Jan 1805 Va d 2 Nov 1871 High Point Iowa High Point Cem. Not known where Anna died but was in 1880 c of Ryan Sumner Co Ks with Roland. After that, I don't know. She was b 8 Nov 1805 Va/
I am a retired hairdresser, LVN, massage therapist/Reike, wildlife photographer, poet and historian for the late Andy Rodgers The Midnight Cowboy 1922-2004. We spent 16 yrs together before his passing. He was a blues legend and hay hauler and intertainer. I love to write and preserve history. I am a nature lover and have adopted seven cats inherited a golden lab, take care of Mom age 88 and live in a walnut orchard here in Biggs Calif.
I am single and devote much of my time to helping others. I love cemeteries and the old stones and can only imagine the stories our ancestors could tell if I could just spend a few minutes with each of them.
I am in to preserving the old photos I have for the Hankins book and would like any additions you all might have to help me.
I have blond hair blue eyes and one day I will be an ancestor whose descendants might say, I've found an old box of poety Georgie Ann wrote, it's as if I already know her.
I write under the name of Snowflake, Georgie Ann Waddell
To all my cousins and friends, Love, Georgie Ann
I also descend from Amos Hankins m Sarah E. Beavers. They were my grandpa Ernest Frank's parents.

In respect for my Mother, Viola Jensen Hankins Miller linage, I spent most of my life with this side of the family after age 12. I was raised between two uncles and two aunts who were Jensen/Casella. (John Jensen m Ida Casella and Thelma Jensen m Joseph Casella) Viola Jensen's parents were John Edward Jensen #107285077 married Lydia Christine Nielsen, # 107286235. Their linages can be traced by using findagrave by going to thier pages. Grandpa had a tremendous sense of humor and retired from the postal service and Grandma was a homemaker. She loved knitting and tatting. I lost them when I was young.
My Mother lived with me for the past thirty years, passing on 4 Mar 2013. I come from a LDS family on Mother's side of the tree and from a Babtist side on my Father's side of the tree. I am always searching for more cousins, far and near to share photos and stories with.
My Mother was cremated and does not show up when entering her name as Viola "Toots" Jensen Miller. Her # is 106197273. She once told me, when she was growing up her parents did not show the kids love and affection that when she became a mother she would give all the love she possibly could give. And you know what, her patience, her love and her perservering on raising us four kids is testimony to that. We often talked about the day we would have to part and she said, "You will be okay, when you need me just ask for me and I will be there." And she knows how much I tried to keep her in this world with me. I love her so much she was more than a Mother, she was my friend through life.

I forgot to tell you that I created Mary Dodge and her husband Mott Dodge and their son Glenn Dodge's memorials. I did so after seeing an article about Mary that piqued my interest. According to the cemetery they do not have headstones. What a shame:(

I found the name you gave "Desislets" as being spelled "Desilets" with records showing several Desilets in Harney County over the years including one in Burns Cemetery with the name "Frank Victor Des Ilets". I found his obit which names his parents with mother being Sara Elizabeth. Bingo! In the 1920 census in Burns there is a Joseph M. and Sarah E. Desilits with a son John F. In the 1930 census in Burns are Joseph and Dora and Dora is born in Arkansas as was Mary Dodge so I suspect that Mary and "Dora" were sisters. A notation on this census says that Dora's name is Sarah Elizabeth Des Ilets. There is a Sarah Desilets with husband "J" who died in Jan. 2, 1933 in Portland in the Oregon Death Index. I will look for her death record at the Archives the next time I go. I like to find parents burial places so I can link their children to them.

Sorry I don't have time to help you with your Beau L'Amore research. I looked on the internet and it appears that he wrote quite a few books.

RE: fag Donald Young 131121954
Hi Georgie,
I am sorry for the delay in getting back with you concerning your post about your family. I do not manage any of Don's memorials; they are in the hands of Find-A-Grave. I would suggest that you write to Find-A-Grave and ask that you take over the management of your memorials. I needed to change/add information to some memorials that Don had created and the staff was more than willing to transfer memorials to me for maintenance or to do the edits themselves.
Good luck, Debbie

Re: Sarah Ann Cates
I'm sorry, I don't have much information about the Hankins family that Sarah Cates married into. We're descended from her second husband George Toles through their youngest daughter Edith Ellen.
Best of luck to you, though!

If you go to Edward Ackley in Libery Center Cemetery in Iowa that will give you three of their children who were unmarried. Let me do some digging and try to link them all up. Yes I do have a lot of info on the Ackley's but will get it together and email it to you if that is OK???
