Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I have been researching our family history since 1980 and learn something new every day. It is not easy and there's a lot of misinformation out there. Be sure of your records; get several verifications and have fun. Most of all be courteous - most of the people you will meet are volunteers and will go out of their way to help you.

Most of the entries are ancesters, close friends of my Mom and Dad or members of our parish family. I am happy to add bios, connect to other family members or assist with family lines.

I have no objection to use of pictures I have added.

George E. Biddison

Have you ever found the parents to George E. Biddison (#137535979)? If he is the same George E. Biddison who married Hannah M. Confer (#164148994), I may be able to help you.

My biggest concern is that my records indicate that George E. was buried in Moline, Rock Island, Illinois.

George and Hannah had the following children:
1. William E. Biddison (1853-1922)
2. Clarence Ellis Biddison (1856-1944) (#117767673)
3. Emma Jene Biddison (1860-?)
4. Grace Biddison (1868-1936) (#16414903)
5. Ira Biddison (1869-?)

If any of these names look like a match, let me know. I have quite a lot of info on the Biddison ancestors.

RE: Eleanor Mitchell & daughters
I am so sorry to hear that. Your family is devastated because of some stupid kid.

Eleanor Mitchell & daughters
Seeing their graves made me sad to think they all died the same day. Don't know what happened but you can tell me if you want to. I grew up in Plainville, but wasn't there in 1982.

RE: James Edward Majors
Hi Gale,

Thanks for asking. You can use the grave pic for what you need. Can you add his middle name on the memorial? Thanks so much.

Dear Gale, thank you for posting the obit for this person. Do you think there is a connection between Ruth Bendon Willcoxen/ William Wilcoxon and the Ruth Willcoxen married to John Willcoxen couple who came from Maryland and settled in Scioto Ohio P wonder if they were brother's. Do you have any thoughts on who this William's parent's were? It is such a tangle this Wilcoxen (and all the variations of the name)line. I would appreciate any aid or research site ideas. Thank you, Julie

RE: Aspin photos
You're very welcome. And I want to thank you for taking the time to write - most folks request and photo and then never thank you for your time and effort. You are much appreciated!
