Bio and Links
Bio Photo On February 15, 2009 my husband & I lost our daughter (Diana), capping a decade that seemed to be full of loss including my brother-in-law in 2000 and my parents, Lindell and Sue Adams, in 2001. The events of 9/11/2001 helped to put our losses that year in perspective. In October of 2011, our youngest daughter, Crissy happened upon Findagrave and found Diana's memorial.

After losing my husband's brother to cancer December 5, 2011 & the unexpected death of a beloved sister-in-law January 29, 2012, we became interested in our family histories which led us back to Findagrave. I have begun to try to find family members in Findagrave and armed with a fistful of obituaries, death certificates and funeral cards I have started to add family members. I hope to add non-family members as I visit the cemeteries. If you happen on a family member of yours that I have added, or if you are a closer family member than I, please feel free to contact me to transfer the memorial to you. You will have to join Findagrave if you haven't already, but it is free and easy to sign up.

God has blessed me with a loving family with my husband, four children (including Diana), twelve grandchildren and three great-grandsons. I also have a wonderful loving extended family. I have two sisters and three brothers of whom I am the oldest.

My families are Wilde, Engle, Adams, Polivick, Crabtree, Goin, Heard, Gupton and Wheatley at this time .
====================================
I try really hard to be accurate, but I'm sure I make mistakes. If anybody finds an error, an inadvertent duplicate entry or has more information I would be very pleased to hear from you. I also would be happy to transfer memorials to family members.

Thanks,
Linda

RE: Charles and Leola Engle
Hi Linda,

So Nice to meet you! Yes, my paternal grandparents are Charles Joseph Engle Sr. and Leola Ruth (Lemen) Engle. My father is Charles Joseph Engle Jr.

I was living in Florida since 1989 and moved back to St. Louis in 2011 after the sudden death of my Mom on September 21, 2010. I was Blessed to be able to have almost 2 years with my Dad before he passed away on November 22, 2012.

My Dad and your husband are First cousins so that would make He and I second cousins.

When we would get together for family reunions in the summer, he would always ask if anyone knew what happened to the Wilde's. He thought of you all often!

Thank you for all the research that you have done on the Engle side of the family. I have only recently started my genealogy research and found all your work very helpful. I was fascinated to find my Great-Great Grandfather Charles Virgil Engle fought with the Union Army in the civil war. He and my Great-Great Grandmother Sarah are buried in JB cemetery very near my home in South County.

I have found that some of the information gets a bit conflicting beyond that. For instance, the birthplace of Charles Virgil Engle and the birth year and maiden name of his wife Sarah. One source list Meadows and her death certificate list her maiden name as Nettles. On his death certificate, her birth year was listed as 1861 yet on hers, it is 1864.

He was quite a bit older than her so they may have fudged hers originally to make her of legal age, not sure.

Yesterday, I visited my grandparents grave in Resurrection cemetery which is how I obtained the photo.

At any rate, I would be happy to share any information that I find. I'm not sure what transferring involves but I would be delighted to update their information.

My grandparents middle child, Ruth (Engle) Niedbalski is still living but is in fair health. My Uncle Ralph, their youngest child passed away when I was in 8th grade. My Dad was the oldest.

Occasionally, I see Kevin, Ginny, Tim, Sandy and Vicki Engle, also all my 2nd cousins. I think that Kevin's wife Helen has done some research so I'm anxious to collaborate with her.

I wish you much love and happiness!

All the Best,
Bob

RE: Family names
Hi Linda! I am interested in knowing what you have on the Hudson/Hutson family tree. Is it the line related to the Spaldings? Or the ones from Hickman Co.? Thanks!

I made a memorial today for my Aunt Pat (Mary Patricia Ellegood) and when I went back to view it, I found your memorial. I have deleted mine and sent a suggestion that links both of her parents to her. Thanks!
