Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Morgan County, Mo, down the road from Hopewell Cemetery. From the days of my first memory, my grandparents and parents took me to visit the little grave yards in Morgan county. I played among the stones and listened to the remembrances of the family who lay beneath, whose souls soared above. As my parents said, "Now is the time to honor their memories, lest we should neglect to repeat who they were and how much they changed their little corner of the world." As a pebble drops and changes it's place, it also creates it's own space and so have the pioneers who carved out a place and changed the world forever." Morgan County is full of people whose ancestors migrated from the East and became one with the land. They were great pioneers whose ancestors and they themselves fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, The Mexican War, the Indian Wars,the War for Texas Independence, the Civil War on both sides and World Wars l and ll. My goal is to honor as many as I can.

I have lived all over the US and traveled abroad. I have five children,ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

I am a DAR member, Museum Guild member, Bay Area Genealogical Society member, Morgan County Museum Society member,
Cole County Historical Society member and I do cemetery restoration. I also transcribe and take pictures of cemeteries. I am working on a book for Family History.

I have more than one copy of all the pictures I have posted so if I can help anyone by sending them a picture, please let me know? I also have death certificates on many and family information.
I love helping other researchers and posters but if you use my info or pictures from my posts please cite me as the source. It causes researchers to hit blank walls when they don't have original sources and it is also considered plagerism and is an ethics issue. Thank you so much.
I want to add to my bio after all these years a great big thank you to all the researchers and
find a grave volunteers who have helped me and continue to add to the site and the memory of so many in cemeteries all over the US. You are remarkable and I appreciate every one of you.
Donít violate copyright.
This may be the most difficult one to adhere to. You must be careful where you take information from, and how you use it. While facts (such as dates and places of birth, marriage, and death) are not copyrightable, the words used to convey that information are. Do not directly copy text but use your own words. Even more important are images. Remember that copyright currently lasts for 70 years after the death of the creator. All those family photographs in your possession? Copyright belongs to the person who took the photograph, and to his/her heirs. The key date at the moment is 1944. By Michael J. Leclerc (Prof. genealogist)

RE: Paul ancestors
How grandfather, Adam Bryan Poff's brother taught school at Stumptown. I have pictures of them at school picture around 1900.

So, your Paul's still in the area? I am curious if we're related-gr-nephew's wife, and myself.
She is a beautiful girl.

I have been doing lots of McNamee research on and off, and somewhere a notebook where Susan Watson's children, including Emily Paul, get lands after the death of Thomas McNamee. My great-grandmother was Viola Elizabeth McNamee Poff, md. Strather Todd McNamee, son of Thomas and Susan Snyder Showalter McNamee and grandson of Thomas and Ann Ludwick McNamee. My e-mail is

Paul ancestors
Do you descend from Thomas' daughter Susan Watson, whose daughter Emily married John Paul-?

My great-nephew's wife is a Paul from Fairfield Co., Ohio I believe...perhaps distant cousins of mine/yours?

Ann "Nancey" Ludwick McNamee
I am sure glad you agree with me, that Ann "Nancey" McNamee was a Ludwick, as many have Hooks. I know her father is likely Moses Ludwick who shows in some early Maryland records where the family is from (before Chester Co., Pa. of course).

Some told me that they thought the sons came to Ohio through a grant or lands won by Hugh as a Revolutionary soldier..has anyone documented Hugh McNamee in this fashion?

RE: William C Gunn
Hi Bonnie,

I'm not sure what a DC# or a BC reference is.

My grandmother Frances Gunn Heil 1911-2002 was the daughter of Daniel O Gunn 1860-1918, who was the son of John Carroll Gunn 1816-1902 the son of Elizabeth Carroll 1796-1875 and her first husband John Gunn.

My grandmother was a DAR and did a lot of family history. In 1951 her cousin Jessie Pursell Shelley stated in a letter, "John Carroll Gunn and his brother William Carroll Gunn both had Carroll for a middle name. It is an old English custom to give all sons the mother's name as a middle name especially if she came from a family of higher rank or renown."

Hope that helps.

Bonnie, I owe you an apology. I am sorry it has taken me so long to transfer your children's grandmother to you. I sincerely apologize for this oversight due to a mix up in my emails. I have now made the transfer so that you may make any changes or updates you would like to her memorial. Please let them know for me.

RE: Hattie Paul (39308042)
Hello Bonnie. Hattie's brother Charles B Leach is my great grandfather. His son Charles Arthur Leach was my grandfather. I came across Hattie through census records and information that someone had given from an old family Bible.

RE: Birch Smith
Hi Bonnie -- I usually add info to F-A-G "on the fly" while I'm simultaneously searching on Ancestry and FamilySearch. The records are in front of me with the info, so why not fill in those blanks! I found Birch Smith's death date on an Application for Headstone for military veterans. Date of birth was "consensus." Many records show he was born circa 1840 in Missouri. Unfortunately F-A-G doesn't allow approximate dates. But about 15 genealogies posted on Ancestry used that date -- 4 July 1839 -- so it seemed more likely than not to be the accurate date. Thank YOU! So many times, F-A-G has been THE source that unlocked the mystery for me, so I try to pay it forward. Sue
