Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 13th generation American - just plain American - no hyphenated nationality in front of "American"!! I did a DNA test in late 2014 and the results indicated I am 100% European with origins from England, Scotland and Ireland along with some Western and Central European [i.e. Germany] and a touch of Scandinavian.

I caught the genealogy "bug" over 16 years ago, but one of my sisters has been doing our family genealogy for over 35 years. It is addictive! and thrilling when we find information.

My sister and I research our family lines, including on our father's side from the southern states: Linn, Galloway, Laster/Lassiter/Lasiter, James, Hysaw, Caldwell, Jeansonne/Johnson, Ritter, Edelmeier, Steen, Stelly, O'Rear, and Newman. Our direct Linn line has been in America since c1772, but my other family lines connected with the Linn's were in America as early as 1635. Most of these families came from Ireland and Scotland although research is showing that the Edelmeier, Ritter, Steen and Stelly lines came from Germany settling in Louisiana as early as 1718 and by the mid 1700's (Ritter's). The majority of my dad's lines were in the American Colonies by about 1650.

On our mother's side from the northern and east coast states, we research the family lines of Beebe, Sides, Lincoln, Borden, Hickox, Upson, Starr, Plumb, Warner, Sensabaugh, Clapp, Haskins, Williams, Brigden, Train, McComb and more. Our mom's direct Beebe line has been in America since 1649, but her Starr line came in 1634. With the exception of the Sensabaugh line, the rest of these families were in America in the mid 1600's. The majority of these lines are English with the exception of Sensabaugh which came from Germany and were in America by 1800 on the east coast.

If you find a relative that I have entered or even a friend, I am more than willing to transfer management of the page to you (other than my own ancestors and relatives). Just send me an email asking for the transfer and please let me know your relationship to the person, their FAG memorial # AND your member ID # (PREFER that you use the 'Edit' button to contact me).

I think it is important to share genealogy information and am thankful to all those who have shared information with me which is why I am willing to share info with others. I try very hard to put a good description on my memorials so you can get to know the person rather than just a name.

You are also very welcome to use any pictures I post on findagrave for your personal genealogy or to post on, but please indicate where you found the picture and give credit to whoever took the picture.

RE: Edward Lee Blodgett
I am a first cousin twice removed from his wife. I don't know where she was buried. No transfer needed. You are doing a good job taking care of Edward. Thanks for all you do. Chris

RE: John Galloway in Crum-Wills Cemetery
I cannot find who John's parents are. The info I used for the memorial came from a book of all cemeteries in northern Macoupin put out by Historical Society.

#23290382 Charles and Mary Beebe
Hi Friend, I've been putting records in Smith Hill Cemetery and found one that says Mrs. Charles Beebe. I made a profile for her a while back, but while checking tonight, I found your link to Mary's "unknown" burial.

I will delete my profile. Would you please edit her burial on yours to reflect Smith Hill Cemetery?

re Winfield Scott Taylor
You are right. I don't think this Winfield Scott Taylor is mine after I did further research. There are a lot of Winfield Scott Taylors and I just have to keep searching. Thank you anyway.
