Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has been my passion for over forty years. Because finding family and learning to "know" them is so interesting, I want to record here enough information to give those who seek their ancestors a good start toward locating the correct people.

I vow to write information for which I have official documentation only. It is a joy to chart information I find in such a way that pieces can be put together to prove who is related. I often use an Excel spreadsheet to lay out the data to see how records fit together.

I greatly enjoy linking people together with other family members. My genealogy experience is rather extensive, so it is usually easy for me to interpret confusing records. As I link, I imagine excited family members sometime in the future discovering a piece of their family puzzle.

In the five-generations photo attached to my profile, I am the baby, mother is holding me, then clockwise is her mother, Jessie Pearl Beardmore; then her mother, Mahala Jane Kinsey; then her mother, Elizabeth Ann Devore.

Susannah Pickinpaugh 176462475

Thank you for doing such a great job. I think I might have the info for the husband of Susannah, please check this Find A Grave memorial 44294061. I believe they were married about 1828 in Noble co., Ohio. I have her maiden name as Swank? I show the same dates as your listing for birth and death.

The link for Susannah on the link I am providing shows Maiden name as Hovencamp, so she may have been married before as John and Susannah were married when she was 24.

John Had three wives 1. Susannah Swank (Swank is what I have), 2. Elizabeth Jane Collins, 3. Margaret Palmer. I show that he had 18 or possibly 19 children. Margaret palmer was married to Samuel Davis and had 5 children, Samuel died before 1859 in Ohio.

Hope this makes sense,
GR Stillwell

RE: Warehime/Ensminger/Anderson
Thank you, Martha, for the information and your quick response. I do have Mahala's name correct in my records. It's so nice to find a cousin on my Ensminger side of the family!

Thank you for the grave photos of Martin and Martha Ensminger Warehime. They are my great great great grandparents. Do you have information about Eleanor(Elllin) Anderson? I am fairly new to genealogy and would appreciate any help.

Dr. Edward Ellis
Thank you for adding this memorial record for Dr. Edward Ellis and noting that his wife Nancy Jane McKinney Ellis is probably buried next to him. Your account of his life is so well written. Edward and Nancy Ellis are my husband's 2nd great grandparents.

re: lemon cracker recipe
Hi Martha,

I saw the lemon cracker recipe on the memorial for Cora Belle Mallett and had a question about it. If you would send me an email address, I can explain what I need. My email is

(BTW, Cora's mother Nancy and my great-grandmother Sarah Belle Antill Bonar were sisters.)

George Albert Lewis Memorial# 162233962
Thank you for adding the photo of George's headstone/marker. In response to your question if I have a documented birth date for him, the answer is yes. I have his death certificate, which is also posted on his memorial.

However, without a birth certificate, either date could be correct as they (headstone & death certificate dates) are both typically given by one's spouse, children, or someone else who was not present at the time of the deceased's birth.

While he is not my direct line (he was my step-great-great grandfather), I doubt I will be looking for his birth certificate, but if I happen to run across it or any other documented evidence, in my searches, I will update the memorial and let you know.

RE: Opossum Valley Cemetery
I thought your pics were well captured, as well! No, not a relation to the Thompsons. I went to confirm the name of the cemetery for a recent interment, as the obituary was had the wrong cemetery name. While I was there, I found the one for the Open Request, but you were already back home and fulfilling it. :)

I enjoy finding the hard ones. Unearthing &/or cleaning them are worth the work.
