Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started with Family History back in the 1970's with major progress made after joining Ancestry.com a couple of years ago. I have found many related contacts including attending a few different family reunions. I started working with FAG in 2011 and it has been a great resource. I look forward to meeting new people on this site and working to improve memorial content.

I am happy to pass memorials to family members.

Update - January 2014 - I am now working on my wife's ancestry and doing a lot of work around the Harper family right now. They are mostly farmers out of the Southern IL area in Johnson County.

Busey Family in Indiana

Hello, Mr. Youngs! I've just begun working on my mom's ancestors, the Busey Family, from KY and IN. I am wondering if you would allow me to add some of your photos from this site to my family tree? It would be most appreciated!

I also ran through your list of requested photos, but don't see anyone close to me. My sister & I love to fulfill photo requests for folks, plus we love to see who can find the marker first (which makes the day more fun).

I did see you had a note attached to the first person on your photo request list RE: a question about her date of death based upon the date listed on the census record vs what is on her marker. I have run across this a few times while working on my tree. Have you tried checking the date at the top of the page of the actual census record page? I have found that most of the census records I have needed were usually taken in April. You can narrow down her DOD based on the actual date the census was taken. Then, just merely place the date & year in your tree to "hold" the place.

We have visited St. Joe, MO in the past, and should we ever get close again, I'll be sure and snap a photo for you (if it hasn't been fulfilled by then) - ditto for your folks in AR.

All the best in your searches in the past, and "Happy Fall, Ya'll". Sincerely, Southernatheart

Hello! I was wondering if you would allow me to attach (with appropriate credit given) your headstone photo from this memorial to my tree on Ancestry?

Thanks for considering my request. :)

New Salem Cemetery
Do you have any idea if New Salem has been fully surveyed yet? I am asking you since you posted a memorial. I'm thinking there should be more people there, specifically the Emery family but I'm sitting here in Los Angeles and fear making an error.

RE: David Morrison
I'm sure they would find that quite satisfactory. You're very kind.

RE: Harper
Do you have the family info going farther back than William and Phebe on either side? i just recently found where Belle was buried. The cemetery didn't have her on their list and she wasn't on Find A Grave either. I have recently been working with Indian Creek Township where most of the Harper/Phelps groups are buried. Their information is a mess. On some of the cemeteries, no one had entered new burials for 8 years.

I may have asked you this before. What is your wife's connection to Alice Catherine Potts Harper?

Adeline Bush
I have more information for Adeline Bush family if you are interested.

re; the Harper family---one of the Harpers born in Seagrave ended up going to Chicago. His wife would be related to Adeline Bush.
