Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching the families of my wife and mine for about thirty years. It is great to learn about family and their migrations.
If anyone finds mistakes on my entries or would like to add information, please contact me. I have been going to cemeteries in my area and have been entering photos and info so many of my entries aren't family. It is always great to meet new family and friends.

Genealogy Research
My family
Barton/Lambert/Goforth/Schooley/White/Miller/ Dunn/Massie/Eggers research is in IL, IA, IN, KY, ENG, MA, DE.

My wife's family
Gibson/McCandless/Turner/Dunn/Ramsey/Brammer/McCully/Wilson genealogy research is in MO, TN, PA, IN.

My wife and I have four children and nine grandchildren which makes our life very enjoyable and now we are blessed with seven great grandchildren. Besides searching for our family, I enjoy wood carving.
The Good Lord has blessed me in many ways!

Remember, "No one is truly gone, until they are forgotten".

With the memorials I have set up, if you find any mistakes, please let me know so I can get them corrected. I'm not perfect, but I strive for perfection in all that I try to do on Find A Grave.

When requesting links, please give me the name of the person plus the ID number. This insures I link the correct person, mother, father or spouse.

On ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS, LINKS or TRANSFERS for any Memorial, PLEASE USE THE EDIT BUTTON and Suggest A Correction or provide additional information. Any of the above posted on my message board will be ignored and deleted.

IN OTHER WORDS, SEND A SAC! Please, no bulk transfer requests!

I will be happy to transfer to a relative if it is within the Find A Grave guidelines, otherwise it will be at my discretion. Please state your relationship of the memorial you want transferred. Just saying they are family is not acceptable.

We want the memorials of those we loved to be as nice as possible.

Thank you!

I have added some more of the Whites I photographed in Cardington but, sadly, I did not come across the one you need.

May I have permission to use your photo of Memorial # 79322569's headstone on my family Tree, please? Daniel is a distant cousin of mine, and it is so nice to have something tangible when there is no access to family photos. I will, of course, you give you credit. Thank you so much for your consideration.

Thank you so much for taking this picture. Samuel (Sammy) Edward Lowrey was my uncle. Of course, I never got to meet him because he died at 4 months but I heard many stories from my grandmother, Sylvia (Daugherty) Lowrey, about the heartache she suffered her entire life at the loss of "Her Sammy Baby".

I did put in for a correction to his last name, LOWREY.
Many people make the same mistake of reversing the R and E.
Teachers did that to me all through school.
Also, his year of birth was 1935.

Bless you for doing this work!
