Bio and Links
I have enjoyed the ancestor hunt a good many years. Since Christy is my direct line I have been trying to connect all that are in my family. Thanks to many of you other site managers, especially "Pam", "MLC", and IRISH EYES ARE SMILING who have helped the most with all those Davis co. and Wapello co., Iowa transfers I requested. I have connected 7 generations in some of the families.

I will gladly transfer anyone not of my direct lines.

I have DNA hits to the Christy and Comer families, but I am unable to make the connection.

Then I saw your last name, I am a decedant of Abner Lewis Mecker andMary Jane Shirley. The last name changes through the records from Mecker and Meeker.

I was wondering if you had him in your line?

RE: Otis Christy
They were married on Oct 31, 1929 in Detroit, MI, the divorce was granted to Otis on Aug 29, 1934, cause - extreme cruelty. Her second marriage to Stanley Hamilton Muxworthy was on Mar 24, 1939. All three events took place in Detroit, Wayne, MI.
Loretta "Babe" as she was known, died Dec 15, 2002 at the age of 90 in Newport Richey, Pasco County, Florida.
Although it states the reason for the divorce, was extreme cruelty, she was a loving aunt. She and Otis never had any children, nor did she and Stanley.
If you would like to email me directly, for additional information on Aunt Babe, my email address is

Otis Christy
Otis was married to my great-aunt Loretta M. "Babe" Leist, on Oct 31, 1929. They divorced sometime before Mar 24, 1939, as she married her second husband, Stanley Muxworthy on that date.

Abner McCrary mem. # 56899411
Hi Karen, I wanted to let you know that the picture of the tombstone and the dates on this memorial are conflicting. Also if this is the Abner Harrison McCrary married to Nercissa Mangum, then there is another memorial for him #147037127. Abner Harrison McCrary and Nercissa are my 3rd great grandparents. Thank you for your review. Sincerely Paula Wilkinson Leach

Jacob Henkle and Mary Barbara also had another daughter, my Grandmother. I thought you might want to look into it.
Her name was Elizabeth born in 1760, died 1838, who married Jacob Crites.
