RE: Adams family
Hi Adana, thank you for the msg, sorry it took me this long to reply. My Adams linage is William Harve, Joseph Fry, Loyal Harrison, and William Joseph (my father). No I'm not on Like everyone that I've met I'm still trying to verify William Harve's parents. I have a pretty good guess or so I think LOL. You may email me at "drumbum4468@yahoo" would love to hear back from you.

RE: Valentine Kimpel
No problem, and I was never upset. In fact I was initially thrilled that perhaps you'd found a son I did not know about til I read the memorial and pieced it together. I agree, such an odd name, you'd hardly think there could be two Valentine Kimpels. You're very welcome for the memorial, and I hope the cemetery can provide you more info on family there by name or in their lot there. You may also want to check for Ohio death certs for your people, which is where I found the data for the one transferred to you. I forgot to add her birthdate to the memorial before I transferred it, but you can snag it off the death cert I posted. Take care.

I cannot find a death certificate for your Valentine, but did find one for his wife Catherine. I made a memorial for her and am transferring it to you. If you contact the cemetery, you may find more of the family - I did see son Clarence was at the same cemetery.

You have an H H Kimpel here and have identified him as a son of Valentine Kimpel, linking him to my great great grandpa Valentine who lived in Philadelphia, PA.

Unless my great great grandpa was a long distance bigamist, I believe you have linked to the wrong man as HH's father. My Valentine was in Philadelphia, PA having a child born the same year as your HH.

There was indeed a Valentine Kimpel who married Catharine Breininger in Defiance, Ohio but I don't think it was my great grandpa Valentine. I recall when researching my Val that there was a man of the same name and age in Ohio. My Val died June 1890. Your guy was alive at least until the 1930 census.

I need your help to explain how we are cousins, or respectfully ask you to unlink your HH Kimpel from my Valentine Kimpel. Many thanks.

Thank you, however, there are still some edits pending. You can find them by going to your profile and under the tab "Edits" are pending edits. I appreciate your assistance in linking family members and providing all of their information.

RE: Chase
You are very welcome for the photos. While I don't remember exactly where the stones were in the cemetery, I believe that they were in the easternmost section of the cemetery, and I believe they were in the Southeast section.

If you are at the free library someday, I would love to have an obit. They make everything so much easier. I saw something on your Findagrave page called "findagrave friends" - what is that?

RE: Johnston
Hi Adana,

Looks like Nellie is a 2nd cousin 2X removed, a granddaughter of "Uncle Lish" Elisha Corray through his daughter Lucinda. Elisha was an older brother of Isaiah Corray who was my great, great grandfather. They both farmed out in Somers Township, NE of Brownfield Woods. I would love to amnage her memorial, if you would so honor me.

RE: Bill Thompson
Robert Dale Thompson was Bill's adopted son. Years ago, I called and talked to his second wife. She didn't allow me to speak to Bill about where Bob was origionally adopted from. It was in his school records that I found a few years back but only the town. My daughter would have liked to known about her relatives while Bill was alive. Bob (her father) had an accident and he has never been her life do to his physical and mental condition. He may have passed for all we know. Anyhow, I did find a lot of Thompson geneology on line but whould like to know about Bob's family in Germany. He told me he had a biological brother here in Iowa too. I also would like a photo of Bill's first wife. My daughter is now going on 28 in November and has no relatives on her father's side. I am her only relative (she has two half brothers too) But, it would be nice to find more on the biological family. By Bill's obit it says he was in the service so I figure thats when he brought his son over here.. he was 2 or 3.
Thanks for your response.

RE: WCIA Channel 3 news story
WCIA does great work. I have been involved in a couple of other stories with Cynthia Swigert and she is great. Near where they were filming is the grave of a Champaign Police Officer, Thomas Dodsworth, who was shot and killed in July 1913. Several months ago they did a wonderful piece when one of our historical members found his badge on ebay and bought it! Hope to see you as well.

RE: William/Sarah Roberts
Hallelujah for a good picture of William, Adana! I've told my brother David that he looks like William, but hard to tell from the only picture I have, which I believe was passed from someone who was not even a family member...a copy of a fax she had, but can no longer remember how/why. Sure glad you have your own kin plus got the bug to go snooping around Yearsley!

RE: William/Sarah Roberts
