|Bio and Links|
Even though I really enjoy researching my family history, my purpose and calling in life is to serve as a missionary for my Lord Jesus Christ. I serve through World Gospel Mission (Marion, Indiana) in Bolivia, South America, which has been my home since 1986. I am an ordained minister, a seminary professor and have been somewhat of a writer. |
I was born in Ohio, spending much of my growing up years in that state. My wife is a New Englander and our two children were born here in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
My interest in genealogy began when I started sifting through old papers and boxes of photos following the death of my maternal grandfather in 1979. It is a fun hobby of solving mysteries of the past and learning more about history.
I hope some of the information and photographs that I'm posting will be a help to others in their own quest to learn more about their family roots. If you think we share some common ancestry, I'll be pleased to share what I know.

Thank you so much for your time and effort on Mary's memorial marker.
|Anonymous||Joseph & Judith Johnson|
Thank you so much for trying to find the markers for Joseph and Judith. Since they were buried there so long ago (1849) it's possible the markers have been destroyed or that they never had markers.
I really appreciate your efforts.
|Gary Decker||Rosetta Schaaf Mahoney|
Mike, I believe I found another descendant of Henry and Emeline Lake Schaaf. Rosetta Mahoney (Find A Grave Memorial# 83765410), whom I found by accident while researching her husband, Thomas Mahoney. The two of them were married in Burlington, KS in 1903, but soon after ended up in California. I have put in corrections to have Rosetta linked to her parents, and to have her maiden name added. Per Emeline's bio, Emeline passed away in Rosetta's home in California.
