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, Curtis, 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.

Beebe, Jonathan/ Joseph ?

I feel for you = I too spent too many years on this person, finally decided he was Joseph. As for the name given on memorial, isn't that a bit early for middle names? I have used this as a guideline for my research and also knowing that when one copies another's research, the original software or the data entry not set up to show possibility of two names and thus the info we find gives us the idea of a middle name even when they were not yet in use. I was taught early on to put questionable info as: & I long ago made up my mind to go with Joseph and like some of my other research, have gone against "popular" conclusions/opinions. If I feel good about my decision, I stick with it.

RE: Calvin Richards
I don't think I could read his age but not sure. If I'm out there again, I can try to remove some of the dirt to get a better look if it's important. And yes, please feel free to use the picture. Thanks for asking.

RE: Rose Estella
We all work together leaving bits and pieces of info for others followng along in the future to find their blood lines. I can't get to the cemeteries this summer because a month ago I snapped my Achilles tendon and after 2 casts on my leg, I'm in a boot but am not weight bearing yet. I had planned to work hard on a local cemetery, but I guess it will be from my computer this summer and not with a camera.
