Bio and Links
Bio Photo Photo at left: Peakville road sign, Clark Co. MO.
Peaksville City limits, town in near distant view, lookng east.

I began my genealogy work about 30 yrs ago, in hopes of finding my fathers heritage. It was a difficult journey but finally put the pieces together. After I had done that I found the Peake gelealogy online which had been done by John T. Suchy. I am so glad I did not see his file during my initial searching, but when I did I found that his simply VERIFIED all that I had found. Up to finding his file online, I had spent the first 15 years piecing the Peake names together.

My family names are Peake, Eisenbach, Kunkel, Stevens,Tarbell,Henning, Moffett,Lotspeich, Holland, Worden Most of my memorials are those of these family names and I will not transfer them.
If you must copy and paste the BIO info from a memorial page and into your account on Ancestry or My Heritage Tree or any other genealogy website, Please Credit your Source. I don't mind any family member having the info, but to just take it as yours is disrespectful considering all the big$$$$$ and time, I have spent to obtain it. 30 years......and you get it in minutes and for FREE. Shame/shame. NOTE: It is called plagiarism...
This has happened many times with the Lotspeich name. They seem to have no shame. I love to share what I have, but my info was used,(info they never had before) and not even a thank you mamm, or an invite on the reunion trip they took to GA., the homeplace of the Lotspeich's I found for them. Sour Grapes, yeah it is. Makes me want to never share another note with this family. My endeavor here is not to get a Kgillion memorials under my belt and then dissappear and become inactive, personally I am not that important to have such an EGO, my work is to inform my cousins out there searching for their family. I love hearing from them and share. I think the Kgillion memorial data entry folks drop out and become the F.A.G. police................
PS: I am thrilled when a NEW Cousin contacts me via F.A.G.

RE: Albert Gentry
Hi Joann,
Thanks for the message.

Unfortunately, I believe "my" Albert is different. He's the son of James Overton Gentry, and his middle name is "Alexander."

Sorry to let the air out of this one, but it is what it is. :-)

I hope you have a great day.

I just wanted to tell you thank you so much for posting the news paper clipping about my grandfather. I had never seen it before. You have no idea how much it means to me. Again thank you so much.

RE: Johannes Julius Kunkel Sr. (John Kunkel Sr.) and Julia Anna Hoffman Kunkel
Hi JoAnne,

I got to you as your name is hyperlinked under the photograph for John Kunkel.

My brother-in-law's mother, Amanda Kunkel Pundt is his Kunkel connection. As best I can tell both her line John's go back to Christian (who was a twin)Kunkel in Germany.

Amanda's ancestors were the 'Olney Kunkels'. When they immigrated to Texas, they went to Olney, Young County, Texas. Amanda's father 'Carl' moved to the Fort Bend County area where Amanda was born. It has been fun to help my brother-in-law who is now 87 find his roots has been fun and a challenge for his other lines (Radke, Boening, and Pundt). He has vivid recollections of some of the family history, but a lot of cloudy at best.

Thanks again for putting such wonderful information into I find so useful and wish I could contribute more to keep this site up and accurate.

Johannes Julius Kunkel Sr. (John Kunkel Sr.) and Julia Anna Hoffman Kunkel
Hi JoAnn,

My brother-in-law's mother was a Kunkel from south Texas. I have been doing research for him to find more of his ancestors. I came across a photo your posted of Johannes Julius Kunkel Sr. (John Kunkel Sr.) and Julia Anna Hoffman Kunkel on memorial #10380946. The label on the framed picture says it was donated by Hilda Kunkel. I am curious was this picture donated to a museum? If so, do you know the name and location of the museum?

Thanks so much,

Richard A Luttrell
