Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching my family history after my mother died from a hereditary disease but got hooked and have been climbing the family tree for over 30 years. I hope I have contributed to the family history for generations to come.

I am a volunteer with the Portage Community Historical Society and they have allowed me to have a genealogy and historical research area in the Goin Museum. If you have an early Portage Township family, consider donating a copy of your family history to our museum.


My Favorite Poem

A Daisy Beside the Rose
by Diana Sue Lindley Horton

Among the many flowers, God,
Within Your garden fair,
May I, a simple daisy be
So proudly standing there.

I need not be the most admired,
Great beauty to disclose;
It's certain in Your garden,God,
Not all can be a rose.

'Twould be to me an honor,
If where Your garden grows,
I could but be a daisy -
That stands beside the rose.

I sent corrections thru the edit part for her record, if you would please accept them. She was married twice first to Evan M Kerst and then to Earl Moran. She is buried with Earl. Thank you.

I made a mistake, you posted pictures on Herman's daughter, Isabelle. Same question though, i am looking for Isabelle's mother.

Herman Carl Kruger
Hi, I see you added pictures, are you a relative. I am looking for his wife, Arabelle Cranker Vosburgh Kruger Osborn. I am related to the Cranker part of her name! I know she died in Oklahoma City in 1971. Hope to hear from her. Also, I have pictures that are labeled Herman and Arabelle Kruger, I am not convinced they are labeled correctly. I am searching for other pictures I have of them to compare.
