Bio and Links
I love genealogy. I am researching Sherwood, Brentlinger, Sykes, Hendryx/Hendricks in Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee. I hope I haven't offended anyone by flowers that I have put on graves. I think it is nice to add flowers to graves and especially those that have never gotten any flowers.

Thanks so much to everyone for the flowers, notes and tokens left for my aunt, Martha Ann Wells,(Oklahoma) my mama,Sadie Stumpf,step-father John(California)and grandparents Melissa Mae & James E. Sherwood (Oklahoma). Your kindness and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.

^^^^William R. Sherwood is the oldest child of James and Melissa (Hendryx) Sherwood.^^^^

***I do not know at this time if the Brentlingers, the ones without sponsors, that have been transferred to me are ancestors of mine or not. I just agreed to take them because it is my Father's surname and I do have ancestors from Indiana.***

~~~~~~A very warm thank you to all of you who visit my loved ones and leave flowers, tokens and/or notes. I appreciate it so very much~~~~~~

RE: Nov. 11th Post
When I clicked on my Nov. 11th post it was empty. I finally found it, but Find A Grave had deleted all my 50+ memorials (Apr 25, Jul 11, Nov 11, plus the singles) with stone pictures and did a combined memorial:
Otis Memorial
Vandenburg Dr.
Barnstable County
Massachusetts USA

I had linked to each gentleman on their "cemetery" page (where found), but those that don't have "cemetery" pages, Find A Grave just chose to delete; I don't know why. Oh well, Find A Grave is their project and they can run it however they choose.

Thanks for letting me know that you are having problems with Find A Grave too. I can't deal long with having to sign in each time I try to post. It it taking me MUCH too long to get through what should only be a couple of hours worth. Ugh!

Happy Veterans Day! Trust yours was restful.

Brentlinger Family
Hi Carolyn - thank you for leaving flowers on the pages for my Brentlinger family members. That is very sweet. If you have Brentlinger roots perhaps we are related? I have a book that traces the Brentlinger family all the way back to Germany in the 1600s. If you haven't seen that book, it might be helpful to figure out if/how we are related. - Diana

RE: Bicknell
Hi Carolyn!

You sent me a message about the Bicknells some time ago, and I am not sure if I replied. If not, I am so sorry.

Sadie Bryant Bicknell is my maternal grandmother and her husband, John Henry Bicknell was the only blood related grandfather I had. He died when I was 8 years old, but I remember him well.

Thanks for your message and kindness.

Hello Carolyn,
Nancy Ann HORTON Gearhart Hendricks (who died in Gage County, Nebraska) was my great grandmother Mahala's sister. Do you happen to know more about her marriage to _____Hendricks, how many children, etc.? Am stumped on the several children it shows that she bore in various censuses, but only have record of about 3. Any info would be helpful....thanks so much for all your work on FindaGrave.
