Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I'm a retired educator. I've been working on genealogy since 1961. It has become a passion. My family has been keeping records for more than a hundred and twenty-five years. I have records for many surnames. Type in last name under contributor's records on the right; then just ask if you think we might share ancestors.
Find A Grave has helped me locate burials of ancestors who were lost. I'm very appreciative of the people who have posted memorials for those cherished souls.

♥♥ Blessings to all who visit my ancestors and family. Your tokens and comments are greatly appreciated. If I fail to acknowledge your visits, know your thoughts are sincerely taken to heart by us in the family. ♥♥

Please, if you have a moment, visit my precious son Travis; a silent pain I live with every day. Many thanks to all who stop and visit him; it truly warms my heart.

Thanks for the sponsorship
Just a note to thank for the sponsorship of Doris' memorial page. I am still new to this site and searching for past relatives. So I have not done all I need to do on each page that I have found or started. Thank you Very Much for sponsoring this page.

Her brother, john

Photo Request
Good afternoon. I am writing to request use of the photo for Dr. Willis and Dorothy Wright, late of Omaha. They share a stone, which you have beautifully photographed for memorials 48173178 and 48173154.

I would like this for my personal family tree on another site, and of course it will be duly credited. Dr. Wright's mother, Myra Bell nee Daman was first married to my Great Grand Uncle, Frank A Austin, late of Sargent NE. She did a fabulous job of raising those kids! So far, I have found a Wyoming State legislator and Dr. Wright among her children. I feel certain that as I uncover details on them, I will find more greatness, and sadly, more sorrow as well.:) My uncle, Frank, died of pneumonia as his youngest of three was an infant. I found his second buried with him in Sargent NE.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

RE: Mary Pierce Memorial
I was more annoyed with the way the site acted like I was the one doing something wrong then them addressing the rampant problem of why I actually to make that statement.

Oh, well

Have a great day!

Leonard Phillips
My maiden name was Haberkorn, and I am the granddaughter of Velma Pullen Haberkorn and the great-granddaughter of Frank Pullen. My parents, Don and Gene Haberkorn are buried in Body Cemetery near many Body relatives. I am concerned about the Father of Sarelda Phillips Body, wife of John Body, because I cannot find his grave anywhere in Illinois. I am concerned because perhaps he might be the Leonard W. Phillips who died in Andersonville Prison during the Civil War. Also, his wife is listed as Margret Bloss, who is not the Margaret Bloss, daughter of Valentine Bloss. I doesn't matter because according to family trees, she was married to him in Illinois, and his family and he came from Ohio after his three girls, Sarelda, (my great-grandmother) Nancy, and ALliniah were born. Who is the Mother of the three girls? If you have any information, I would be most appreciative. (I am a former schoolteacher, too.) If you have any other names of Body relatives I could contact, please let me know.

Thank you.
