Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history exploration for me begins with Ottawa Co, Kansas, but of course led across the country. An inheritor of several generations of newspaper clippings, I started transcribing obits from microfilm beginning at the 1879 start of the paper and realized the value of reading them all in understanding my family's history in the region. A sort of 'community-based genealogy' habit grew and expanded, as did an interest in cemetery preservation and recording.

Living now in a rural Kentucky county, our local history goal is to locate the old family cemeteries up in the hills, photograph and record. Most are hidden and overgrown; some remarkably well looked after by landowners whether related or not. And several are out there yet to be found...

Am happy to transfer your relatives and happy to help in the hunt for them.

Thank you so much for the permission to use Caleb Risdon's photo. I just realized that you had also contributed monument photo's to soldiers graves in Delpho County. May I use those too? The soldiers are Henry Baldwin,Charles Morse,Augustus Ballou, J.N. Blanchard & Philander Rice.All of these "Boys in Blue" have roots/ connections to Vermont, and I would be so pleased if they can be posted on the Vermont Civil War site.

Again, thanks,

Deanna French
