Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

RE: Albert William Phillips
Hello Jim,
Sorry for the long delay in responding. Yes, very interested in Rosa Gilles. Do you know the circumstances of her death? My mother said she died in childbirth and child died with her. But headstone indicates the child may have lived a few days. Any pictures of Rosa? Thank you.

Dr. William Critchlow
I had Dr. Critchlow as a doctor many years. In fact my sister-in-law was his nurse many years.
He and his wife were wonderful, kind people.
I did not know if you knew them personally. I just wanted to pass this along to you.

Wanda Critchlow
SIKESTON -- Mrs. Wanda Critchlow, age 96, died at 2:38 p.m. July 17, 2012, at the Clearview Nursing Center in Sikeston.
She was born Wanda Fern Radcliffe on Nov. 6, 1915, near Matthews, to Frank and Bertha Evans Radcliffe. She grew up on the farm and graduated from Matthews High School.
On April 8, 1939, in Sikeston, she married William C. Critchlow, also from Matthews, who was at the time a medical student at St. Louis University. During World War II, they lived on the coasts of Oregon and Washington where Dr. Critchlow served in the Army and she took care of their two sons. Following the war and further medical training, the family moved to Sikeston. Here she made a warm and loving home and raised their five children, along with several of their friends. She was also a member of the Eastern Star and was a lifelong member of the Christian Church, being very active in the Sikeston church as long as she was able to attend.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 58 years; and her sister, Barbara Proffer.
She is survived by: five children, Dr. Jim and Diane Critchlow of Dexter, Joe and Barbara Critchlow of Houston, Texas, Dr. Tom and Tonya Critchlow of Cape Girardeau, Dr. Mike Critchlow of Sikeston, and Debbie Critchlow Yorke and Jay Yorke of Dexter; and 17 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Visitation will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, July 20, at the Ponder Funeral Home where funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 21. The Rev. Mary McCord, pastor of the First Christian Church, will officiate.
