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.

Eva Young @ Edward White
I have talked to Dave several times. We have found Eva Young and My Gr. Grandfather's marriage in Iowa in 1884 March 30th. No death on her. Their daughter Emma May was born in 1886. Edward is found in 1887-88-89 as single in St. Joseph,Mo. He married my Gr Grandmother Amelia Boudinier Apr 20,1891. I have not found a death or divorce with Eva. Emma, the daughter shows up as a Emma Van Gilder.Perhaps adopted. She is buried as May Linthicum in California 1942.I have matched with 2 other people with my DNA.Children of Edward or his offspring Nothing prior to Edward before his first marriage in 1886. Would love to find his parents. It is not the names on both marriage license as parents.... Ambrose White and Emma Thompson. First marriage was Jackson and Emma Thompson. A big puzzle.

I was just curious how it was you found so much great information and photos on the Shepherd family. The information you found on Jeremiah Shepherd (my 4th great grandfather) was very interesting. Did you find all of this information at the courthouse in Clarinda?

Clark Family
I just found out through My research that my family members are born at Villisca cemetary. Glenn Earl Clark be August 22nd, 1899, died November 3rd 1969. I also noticed that hid parents, , my great grandparents are also buried there. Is there anyway I can find out if any of the other Clarks are also related to me? Does the cemetary have record of which children created my grandfathers grave marker?

RE: Memorial transfer
Hi Bryson

It's no problem. I just asked not knowing if you're related or not.
