My passion for family history started the day I visited The Alamo at San Antonio back in early 1984; witness to a painted portrait of Jacob Calloway Darst, whom I later realized was a first cousin (5 generations removed).

What do you know about Bessie Smith Rife , wife of Carl Rife ?
In an obituary for Julius Smith dated 1962 there is a Bessie Rife of Gallipolis , in your memorial you had Jule , but the question I have is the mother is listed as Elizabeth Stewart Smith , and Julius was husband of Ollie Jeffers Smith , I wonder if he was married 2 times.

Nancy Ann Flora Fowler

I just wanted to say thank you for the information on Nancy Ann Flora Fowler. I was wondering if perhaps you had any information on her children that I haven't been able to link to yet or possibly a death date for Harry Couch Fowler?

I am Theodore Rupert's granddaughter and haven't been to his grave in at least 40 years. Do you know where it is in the cemetery. I would like to bring my daughter to see it. She is also a OSU graduate.

Can you tell me where you found that his middle name was Herman? I am his gg-grandaugher thru his daughter Hattie. We always thought the middle H was for his mothers maiden name of Hyatt which was common during this period.

thanks for your help.
