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!

Thank you for updating The Caddick file. This is my grandma on my mothers side. I just lost my mom on November 24, 2015. Moms page led me to grandma and grandpa site. I only met them once when I was 11 years old but good people. Thanks again for your help.

Thank you so much for your work in the cemetery in Hugoton. I have been looking for any signs of faith in my family history. When I saw the inscriptions on the head stones of my Great Grand parents Monroe and Josie Traver in your photos on their memorials I was especially moved. I believe that Monroe was born into the German Lutheran faith in Rhinebeck, NY and that his adoption of the Quaker faith was linked to meeting Josie and her family, who were Quaker, in La Porte, IN. where he lost his parents shortly after settling there in 1873-1874.

Thank you for the marker photo for Larry Forgey's grave. I had been meaning to take one and add it. I logged on today and saw that you had already done so back in April. I appreciate it.

Memorial Transfer - #46898862
Hi Leon,

I would respectfully ask to have Esther Carter's memorial (46898862) transferred to my care. I sent you an email with more information, but basically she is my paternal grandmother.

Kind Regards,
