Bio and Links
Bio Photo Before my mom passed away I started on the journey to discover my family ancestors. I don't remember how I was put in touch with my cousin but we meet about 5 years ago.

That meeting started me especially after the phone call to my mom. They talked for two hours and I spent the next day gathering photos of people she remembered. The past came to life for her when I brought them home. She enjoyed them for almost 2 years before she graduated to higher ground.

What was interesting is that the past also became part of my present. Now as of August 10, 2008, the tree is being redone. However, this wonderful resource was found as well as an increase of information. The tree now stands at 6,011 people. It grows every day with new discoveries. All because of a computer crash new life is growing. With the help of others for every question answered ten more come up.

For that reason I am glad to experience the ever expanding network on this long journey. As they say many hands make work lite. Lets all work together and see what else can be found.

Thanks a million times something,
Doug Powell

Doug: I don't know any other way to contact you, so this will have to do. You have listed as a sibling for Louise at "Find a Grave" Edward born 1881. He was John Price's brother, Luoise's uncle. You don't have our grandpa listed as her brother Dudley Harold Price. Cousin, Carol

Hi,

Just wanted to let you know I checked with the cemetery board to find Mrs.Dunagan's grave. I would never have found it without their help! Take care.

I noticed you posted a photo of Lorenzo Chapin on this site. Lorenzo is my great-grandfather and I have never seen a photo of him. Thanks. May I ask where you got it from? I wonder how we are related?
