Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I have been researching our family history since 1980 and learn something new every day. It is not easy and there's a lot of misinformation out there. Be sure of your records; get several verifications and have fun. Most of all be courteous - most of the people you will meet are volunteers and will go out of their way to help you.

Most of the entries are ancesters, close friends of my Mom and Dad or members of our parish family. I am happy to add bios, connect to other family members or assist with family lines.

I have no objection to use of pictures I have added.

Norton's of Guilford CT
HI Gale,

Thanks so much for your messages regarding the Norton's of Guilford, CT. I was absent on the Find A Grave website for awhile and didn't see your messages until now. I appreciate your notes as well as Donna, who transferred images.
Thanks again to you and Donna!

RE: Anna & Frank Wesely
Your correction request has been completed regarding the census form error. The correction addition caption for all census forms entered now reads: 1900
Parents and siblings page 2 of 2. listed Frank Wesely 66 Anna Wesely 66 Joseph Wesely 32 Frank Wesely 29 Anna Wesely 27 Julia Wesely 22 Mary Wesely 18 Johnnie Wesely 7. The Johnnie listed as their son was actually their grandson - he was the son of their daughter Anna.

Your time and attention to this is appreciated, thank you.

Hi Gale,
I may not get back to Oak Lawn until Spring but in the meantime you could put in a photo request. Do you happen to know the section of Oak Lawn where he's buried. I cannot remember since it's a huge cemetery and don't know why I wouldn't have taken all the photos in their plot while there. Regards, Dee

Marcellus Burgan & Poole/Garrison/Scott family photo
I uploaded one of the old family photos which several of us are working on to identify- to your Marcellus Burgan entry so you too could see it. Could you confirm that he is the man in the hat, with his wife and son in law [Bradbury Poole husband of Stella "Aunt Polly" Burgan] behind him? Thanks in advance for any clues. See pic caption.

There are also others who bear a resemblance to Burgan photos which you have posted--so thank you for any clues. Many are in my line but its a work in process...My grandfather born 1898, Stuart Richey Garrison, is pictured as a young man (in suit, standing, front right), say 18-24? years old, if that helps with timing; his mother [Ellen Hardin Poole Garrison, back row with arm in front of her] is one of the Poole sisters--many of whom are pictured here. See findagrave links...

I am sorry but I cannot find anything on her. Good luck on your hunt.

RE: General
Thanks for assisting. Any you want transferred, just use the suggest a correction feature and indicate "transfer" and I'll send them over. Family researchers should maintain them.
