Bio and Links
As many others here, I have been bitten by the genealogy bug, which brought me here in the first place. If I have posted information or photos you are interested in, please feel free to copy and use them to remember our loved ones. I would ask you note me as a source only so other's may also find me.

Surnames I am researching are Chamberlin fr NY->IL->MI->SD, Cunningham, Butterfield, Padgett, Strange, Johnson and Seal, in IL, MI, MN, IN and SD primarily and related Indiana families and Maryland League. For those not familiar with the MD League, there were about 30+ Catholic families that made a pact to move from MD to KY. Many later moved to IN.

Fallon Ireland->NY->OH->MN&WA. Philby/Filby England->PA->IA & WA.

Brennan and Walsh and related families of Springfield and Chicago, IL

And Jackson, Ross, Traywick, Whittle, Williams, Stegall, Helms, Griffin, Morgan & their connections such as Austin, Little, Staton, Maness, Caudle, Coburn, mostly in NC, but some crossed that line into SC. And as you know, the names keep growing :)

Thanks to those that have made my journey easier by posting their families. I would love to connect and compare.

In particular, I have many unidentified photos from NC and SC that I would like to put names to, so PLEASE contact me if you are a Ross/Whittle/Foley/Williams/Helms/Griffin/Morgan descendent as I may have photos you can help me name.

I am still gloomy after losing my beloved Harley

Hi Lisa,
I stumbled on your posting for Frank Cunningham today. He was my grandfather and we have lots of info on the Cunningham clan thanks to Bernard Cunningham who researched our family tree. Feel free to email me:

Madden Family
Bridget Derrig & George Madden are my great-grand parents on my mothers, Fathers side, Mary Irene Doyle & Michael Timothy Madden, are my grandparents. I have always been told all four of them attended and were buried at St. Michaels church. Is there anything you can tell me why they are not. I was told the church was torn down. I live in Missouri and have not had a chance to come and check it out.
Thank you, Mary Mertz Branson

Clara M Smith Padgett
Clara was not born in 1863, it looks like 1867 to me, but my records show 1886. She also has a twin brother (my great grandfather)born the same year, of course.

Cap'n Philby
I think we are related by Philbya but not sure how. Perhaps Aunt Lera? my great aunt? or aunt Annie? Anywho, I am still enjoying the search for ancesters graves(I started last fall) and notice Cap'n stone says 1918 when the memorial show it was 1916? Have any ideas about why this is? Maybe notate on the bio? Palelily, keeping the kin in kindness

John Vincent Flynn
My name is Dave Clark. John Vincent Flynn was my wife's father. He and his wife, Anne are buried at Calvary Cemetery in Springfield, Illinois, not Oak Ridge.

Since these cemeteries are side by side, I can see where some confusion may arise.

Could you please correct their location.
