Hello Lois,
At some time in the past, I've used your photo of the gravestone for Lt Gen Charles Douglas Herron and Louis Milligan Herron (Oak Hill Cemetery, Crawfordsville, Indiana) on my ancestry.com family tree, and I just want to be sure that you are okay with that. Please let me know if I can retain it, with attribution to you. Thanks very much! Gwen

Genealogist's Christmas Eve
'Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even my spouse.

The dining room table with clutter was spread
With pedigree charts and with letters which said...
"Too bad about the data for which you wrote;
Sank in a storm on an ill-fated boat."

Stacks of old copies of wills and such
Were proof that my work had become too much.
Our children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.

And I at my table was ready to drop
From work on my album with photos to crop.
Christmas was here, and such was my lot
That presents and goodies and toys I'd forgot.

Had I not been busy with grandparents' wills,
I'd not have forgotten to shop for such thrills,
While others bought gifts to bring Christmas cheers,
I'd spent time researching those birth dates and years.

While I was thus musing about my sad plight,
A strange noise on the lawn gave me such a great fright.
Away to the window I flew in a flash,
Tore open the drapes and yanked up the sash.

When what with my wondering eyes should appear,
But an overstuffed sleigh and eight small reindeer.
Up to the house top the reindeer they flew,
With a sleigh full of toys and 'ole Santa Claus, too.

And then in a twinkle, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of thirty-two hoofs.
As I drew in my head, and bumped it on the sash,
Down the cold chimney fell Santa--KER-RASH!

"Dear" Santa had come from the roof in a wreck,
And tracked soot on the carpet, (I could wring his short neck!)
Spotting my face, good 'ole Santa could see
I had no Christmas spirit you'd have to agree.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled all the stockings, (I felt like a jerk).
Here was Santa, who'd brought us such gladness and joy:
When I'd been too busy for even one toy.

He spied my research on the table all spread
"A genealogist!" He cried! (My face was all red!)
"Tonight I've met many like you," Santa grinned,
As he pulled from his sack a large book he had penned.

I gazed with amusement--the cover it read
Genealogy Lines for Which You Have Plead.
"I know what it's like as a genealogy bug."
He said as he gave me a great Santa hug.

"While the elves make the sleighful of toys I now carry,
I do some research in the North Pole Library!
A special treat I am thus able to bring,
To genealogy folk who can't find a thing."

"Now off you go to your bed for a rest,
I'll clean up the house from this genealogy mess."
As I climbed up the stairs full of gladness and glee,
I looked back at Santa who'd brought much to me.

While settling in bed, I heard Santa's clear whistle,
To his team, which then rose like the down of a thistle.
And I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight,
"Family history is Fun! Merry Christmas! Goodnight!"

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Russell has just received some wonderful news that Invisible Youth Network is among those organizations being recognized by Peet's Coffee & Tea with a donation that will be sent to IYN in January!!!

Some of Russell's plans for 2010 include intentions to open up a residential youth center for San Diego street kids along with a camp (a respectable one and not one of those horrible boot-camps) out in the country.

He also intends to have four major fundraising events every three months out in San Diego in the coming year!

That's quite a shirttail cousin you have there!

From what I've seen so far, you Hartsaws are some pretty amazing people!!!

Enclosed -- bio for Charles D. Herron
I sent this to your e-mail address, but it was returned.

Charles Douglas Herron, 1877-1977

I prepared a bio of General Herron. I'm sending it to you in case you want to add it to the Find A Grave page you created.

I added a photo of General Herron to that page today -- I found it on the web site for the US Army's Pacific Command

If you wanted to, you could probably have General Herron's page included in the famous listings.

Regards,

Bill McKern

-----

Birth: Crawfordsville, Indiana, March 13, 1877

Death: Honolulu, Hawaii, 23 April 1977

US Army General. He graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1899 and served in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War. He then carried out a series of increasingly demanding assignments, including Adjutant of the 10th Infantry Regiment in Panama, and commander the 10th Infantry's Machine Gun Company. In 1908 he received a master's degree from Indiana's Wabash College. During World War I he served as Deputy Chief of Staff of the 1st Infantry Division and Chief of Staff of the 78th Division, receiving the Distinguished Service Medal. After the war he served on the General Staff and was assigned as Chief of Staff of the Philippine Department. From 1934 to 1935 he was head of Reserve Affairs, receiving promotion to Brigadier General. From 1935 to 1937 he was commander of the 6th Field Artillery Regiment. In 1937 he earned a law degree from Wabash College and was promoted to Major General as acting VI Corps commander. As head of the Army's Hawaiian Command in the late 1930s and early 1940s, Herron was promoted to Lieutenant General and bucked Army conventional wisdom by advocating the integration of Japanese-Americans into the military. He retired in early 1941, but was recalled for World War II, serving on the Personnel Board that considered officers for promotion. He retired again in December, 1946, receiving another Distinguished Service Medal. In 1947 he was promoted to General on the retired list. From 1946 to 1966 Herron resided in Bethesda, Maryland, where he was active in civic affairs and served on the Montgomery County Court of Tax Appeals. In 1966 his wife and he moved to Hawaii to live near their daughter, and Herron died at the nursing home where he had resided for several years.

Russell & Cloverdale
I have a very special friend named Russell T. Hartsaw (T standing for Thomas) whom I met online a year ago January 15.

His dad was born in Indiana--and, likely, his paternal grandparents as well. But they moved to Florida when his dad was still young.

His dad eventually moved to Cleveland, Ohio where he met his second wife. They had Russell (their only child) together.

Eventually, Russell and his parents moved to Florida--and his parents mysteriously disappeared while Russell was at school. Russell was nine at the time and came home to find even their mobile home missing.

I wrote his story here:

http://www.writing.com/main/view_item/item_id/1332128

The aforementioned story also tells how he came to found an organization called Invisible Youth Network...

http://invisibleyouthnetwork.org/

Anyway, my mom grew up in Cunot (not far from Cloverdale) and graduated from Cloverdale High School in 1939.

Last year on Memorial Day Weekend, we had gone down to decorate graves at Cunot Cemetery but had decided to drive around the cemetery in Cloverdale where various other friends and relatives were buried.

Earlier that day, we had picked up some food at Subway, which was located in this truck stop up on the hill by I-70. I was drawn to these sweaters for some reason at the time--and, when I got closer to them, I saw that they were Russell Athletics outfits.

But here we were in the cemetery, and, all at once, my eyes about popped out of my head when I found myself staring at a gravestone with the name of Hartsaw on it!!!

We would later find out that some people who were close friends knew the Hartsaw family--and that the mother of the man who had passed away had actually been the person who had stayed with the wife's mother until she went to the nursing home!

Anyway, I have the feeling that it might be time for Russell to find out about the missing links in his family--and, perhaps, end up understanding why his parents took off like they did and left him behind.

Please add me to your friends list, and I hope we stay in touch!

Thanks!
Ainsley Jo Phillips :-)

Hi Lois: I see that you left flowers and brief note at my father's virtual grave site in 2006. I don't know you or anyone else among your family and friends listed on your own site and was wondering if you knew my father?

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my dad.
