Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my roots for over 40 years. I remember when I was a boy asking my grandmother and great aunt about relatives who lived so long before me. I got the genealogy bug and the quest for more information continues. The journey has been amazing!

As an army veteran, I enjoy knowing about and researching those who served in the U.S. military. Their names and experiences need to be remembered.

Family names I'm mainly searching are the following from OH, WV, PA, MD: Ansel, Anspach, Boso, Botzko/Buczko/Butzko, Calvert, Dupler, Ferguson, Logsdon/Logston, McMillan, and Mills.

If you are a related to or have an extreme interest in a memorial that I have, I'm happy to transfer the site (unless it's one of my relatives or someone I'm very interested in). I believe that a relative will care for a site more than anyone else, no matter how distant the relationship.

Happy genealogy trails!

Pvt James McConn
James Arthur McConn I is my great grandfather.
I have his bio and information at
Memorial #68180580. I have 2 reasons for writing to you. First, let me thank you for all the work you have put into genealogical research and, mostly, that you chose to share what you found. When I do search on my gggrandfather it sometimes takes me to your memorial and it seems to have his birth and death dates but the rest of the information is for a different James McConn who married Drusilla Silvers. Considering all the research you have done, it is very likely that you know this site, but there is a site
supported by the state of WV that is really useful to check births, marriages and deaths.
Our James Arthur McConn served with the 47th Illinois Infantry. I have hit a brick wall to go on to James' parents (for sure), Perhaps thanks to people like your self who share, I shall do a search and find an answer to take me back further into my ancestry,

Logston/logsdon surname...
Dear Cousin Charles,
I have been following my Aduddell/Diddle extended family of which your family is a part. I have collected about 70,000 of our relatives. I appreciate your diligent, concerned work for your portion of the family and many other families. These families will definitely bless your name through the eternities!!! Thank you.
I was wondering if you had determined which spelling of Logston/Logsdon is perhaps the original spelling. Would you know the national origin of the surname? The origin of the other family surnames that you mention in your bio?
Have you been able to find more family info that would change what you have written for George W Logsdon?
Thank you for you time and effort through the years.
Mike Adduddell

Hi Charles
I am sorry about that--I did not create the other one-but it has a picture attached. I will contact that other contributor.

RE: Hannah Connelly 78571594
Thanks, Charles

I was working on this family yesterday and also noticed that your Louisa Connelly 78571584 is a dup of 99772483--

this is a tough family to sort out because of the deaths that occurred during or just after the civil war.

Hannah Connelly 78571594
Hi Charles

I think your Hannah Connelly in Stone Church cemetery is a duplicate of Hannah Connelly 64978764

the 1889 date you have as a death date wais a date of removal to Stone Church cemetery, not a death date. Hannah died before 1839--in 1889 her husband Joseph H. , Hannah herself, and Jennie were all moved to Stone Church.

Clarence William Madsen # 16832905
Hello Charles,
I am 1st cousin once removed to Clarence William Madsen # 16832905, whose memorial you maintain.
Here is some bio info you might wish to enter:
Clarence was born to Christian Madsen and Ane Christensen Sindberg (my great aunt) in Antigo Wisconsin on 1 May 1897. He married Myrle Jean Moen and had 2 sons, Bill Melvin (1919-1944) and Trev Ansel (1921-). (I have spoken with Trev around year 2000). Trev was living in the Tacoma Washington area at the time.
Clarence lived in Mt. View WA in 1910, in Seattle in 1920, served in US Navy during WW1, moved from Granite Falls to Shelton in 1926 where he worked for Simpson Lumber Co. as a fork lift operator.
If you wish to transfer Clarence to me, that is okay. If not, OK.
Also, if you know anything about his sister, Mable Laurine (May) Madsen (1884-1961), I would like to know also. She married a Anderson and a Wickinski.
