Bio Photo Updated: November 2016
Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.

"History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon."
-Napoleon Bonaparte

“To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child. For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history.” —Cicero

Chief Petty Officer, US Navy, retired.

Enjoying the fruits of my labors - children and grand children - to the best of my abilities.

Traveling around North America in my RV with my dogs!

Currently, my favorite bumper sticker is "My grandchildren are cuter than yours"

If you have a problem with something I posted, please email me or click on suggest a correction instead of posting it on my contributor page. I will address the issue as quick as I possibly can.

If you would like a transfer, I do not follow FAG transfer guidelines, so feel free to ask. But if they are a relative of mine, let me know how you are related and we will figure it out from there!

The purpose in life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

One can tell the morals of a culture by the way they treat their dead. ~ Benjamin Franklin

To Err Is Human, To Correct Divine. If you come across any errors or have additions to the memorials I maintain, please let me know. I strive to provide accurate information and will be happy to make any changes necessary, or transfer them over to your care.


The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future. ~ Herbert Spencer

Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories. ~ Unknown

Remeber and learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

"There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go." ~ Author Unknown

"Lest they be forgotten."

"May they live forever."

"When an old person dies, a library burns..." African proverb


Life is not a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving safely, in a well-preserved body. Rather to slide in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming.."WOW, that was a Great Ride!"

Margaret Trureblood
Would you be kind enough to correct. Mrs. Trueblood is not buried in Cox's Cemetery Athol. She was buried in Cox Cemetery Annapolis Maryland. Please note the Portion of Obituary with the burial details.

Graveside services are 2 p.m. CST Saturday in Cox Cemetery in Annapolis, with graveside military rites performed by the combined funeral honors detail of American Legion Post 69, Robinson Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4549, Crawford County Amvets Post 33, and Flat Rock American Legion Post 132. There will be no visitation. Prust-Hosch Funeral Chapel in West Union assisted with arrangements.

Corp Trueblood photo request
Corporal Trueblood is among those known to be buried at Shiloh, but whose specific grave locations are unknown. Those graves are marked by either short numbered blocks or by headstones that say "Unknown." I've added photos of both styles to his memorial.

RE: Daisy Hornbaker Baker
Well, I love your bio, especially the definition of consciousness! When were you in the Navy? I did my time in the late 60s... Navy Nurse. GO NAVY! Too bad Army can't play football. HAHAHAHAHAHA

Happy Thanksgiving!

RE: Daisy Hornbaker Baker

Yes, I sure did! A "little" wind won't hurt me; I weigh enough that it can't blow me away. :-)

Glad to do it!

Gloria Logue
Your Find A Grave Memorial 127361742 is for the same person as Find A Grave Memorial 144857537 Mrs. Gloria Claire Logue. The difference is it is listed in the cemetery (Rosemound Cemetery) in Waco where she is buried.

You fond my 5th Great Grandmother!
Thank you for helping me fill in the Twichell line of my site.
Rachel Sperry Johnson was my 5th Great Grandmother who was married to David Johnson.
The Jonas Twichell family moved from Connecticut to Orland, Indiana, where my grandfather, Eugene Twichell was born. I moved with my husband, Dr. Ellsworth Charles McClenachan from Michigan back to Connecticut in 1959.Life is truly a never ending circle.

What a treasure to have people like you traveling about finding information that helps so many of us trace our genealogy.

And thank you for your service to our country. My father, Samuel Houston Hill, was a medical corpsman in WWI. Through benign neglect I found his letters to his mother and 2 sisters which I had published into a book for the family.
