Bio and Links
I have been working on genealogy since approx. 1994 -- after my Mother passed away, in going through her stuff, I found the names of my fathers parents (we had never known any of my fathers family). I wondered if I would be able to find them and I was successfull in finding my fathers only living sibling. I live in Des Moines, Iowa, and she lived in Oregon -- I flew out the following Thanksgiving to get acquainted with her and couldn't have been happier. This gave me the "genealogy bug" and I have been searching ever since -- have found WONDERFUL relatives who I never knew existed. Genealogy if great!!

The names I search are CLAYTON, McNEELEY, ARROWOOD, MYERS, SPENCER,just to name a few.

Norma Adelia Platte's family
Dear Nancy,
I'm working on a Platte (Plate) genealogy and I'm hoping you can help me with your family. I found information about your mother Marlene Friend Picciurro. However, I'm looking for information on her children. Do you have any siblings? Also, I saw the picture of your mother and her cousin Sharon Kant. I believe that Sharon had a brother Charles and a sister Carol. Is that correct? Any information you are willing to share, I would be very grateful. Thank you for sharing the photos and information.

Find A Grave # 60018208
Nancy, I 'm sorry but you have this John Myers mixed with another. John Myers 1810-1879 married Elizabeth Bloser 1812-1895 buried at Prospect Hill. They had no daughter Agnes married to Tritt. This John Myers family is my 5th grand pap.
The John Myers married to Eve Bowers is buried in the Newville Cemetery and is no relation to the John Myers buried at Prospect Hill.
Please review.
Thank you,
Frank Myers Jr.

P.S they did have a son Joel, Peter, John, Hezekiah, Henry, William A. and Solomon Myers. There were three girls but none named Agnes.

RE: Fonnie Dennis
Hello Nancy,
Thank you for your reply. Yes, Fonnie was my husband's aunt. There were 10 siblings, all are now deceased and I am trying to get all of the appropriate connections added on find a grave. If you would like to transfer management I will be happy to take over.

Thank again,
Penny Dickey

If I enter W*busch in Iowa into (free) this is the result. But you could/should have done that yourself - of course:

Find A Grave Memorial# 111740071
Regarding John I. Snitker - Find A Grave Memorial# 111740071

This is the grave of John Layton Snitker of Des Moines, Iowa. The memorial has it listed under John I. Snitker which is incorrect. The picture of the tombstone associated to this memorial clearly shows the middle initial is an L. Can this reference be corrected please, as it affects one's ability to search for grave using this database.

Thank you - sincerely, James L. Snitker
