Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started tracing my family roots back in the late 1970's by helping my mother by visiting libraries and traveling to Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. Which is where many of my ancestors came from before settling in Iowa. I grew up in Iowa but my work took me to Kansas. Now I have returned to Iowa, the place I've always called home. Was lucky to have both parents interested in genealogy.

If I post a photo you would like removed - let me know and I will remove it. I realize there is a 5 photo limit. I would also encourage the sponsoring a memorial page as this is a wonderful site worthy of support.

I am also more than happy to transfer memorials if they are not in my tree.

RE: Eva May Young- White
It's good to hear from you. Sorry to say, not much more has been found on this end. Other than Oct 2015 DNA test confirmed my Grandfather was not a only child. It confirmed Eva Young, daughter of John and Mary Young of Villisca was my Gr. Grandfather's Edward Joseph White wife. The Young's have in he family bible, Eva died in Jan 1890. They had a daughter named Emma May in 1887, found as May Linthicum. No information on burial for her mother Eva. My Great Grandfather was buried in St. Joseph. Mo in Aug 1891. His parents lived in Villisca. I have no clues to his parents. The names on his marriage cert. to Eva in 1884 in Villisca as his parents are the same names as parents he used when he married my Gr. Grandmother Amelia Boudinier in 1891 in St. Joseph, Mo. I have not found them anywhere as his parents. Ambrose and Phoebe White buried in Villisca Cemetery are questionable. Ambrose was married once before. Again cant find him married to a Emma Thompson. The newspaper in Villisca said, his parents names were Mr and Mrs John White. Don't know what I'm missing? Ancestry did tell me... only 3 people have Edward Joseph White 1861-1891 in their tree. I am one of them, my sister and Eva's niece. Do you know Dave McFarland in Villisca? He works on the Villisca History? Perhaps out of the library. He told me, by phone.. everything is kept at the library in Red Bud, Iowa. Any help or clues would be appreciated. Thanks for asking.
