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 wonder if you would consider transferring this Confederate soldier to my keeping, because I have a great deal of data to enter on him. This includes a letter he wrote home from prison camp in Chicago Thanks for your consideration.

Lillian H Herrenknecht

Memorial # 31894210 I believe is for Lillian “Lily” H Herrenknecht Doyle. B: 5/15/1872 D: 6/9/1943 Married in 1894 to Daniel S Doyle. I believe they are both buried in Block 14 Lot6 11.20 Mason City Cemetery.

They had at least 4 daughters: Josephine Doyle Copper B 11/3/1894 D 10/3/1977; Maisie D “Sweetie” Doyle Entwistle B 12/12/1901 D 2/7/1990; Irene E “Babe” Doyle Tomlinson B 7/6/1905 D 9/24/1996; Marjorie L “Marge” Doyle Harman B 10/16/1913 D 11/26/2009. Josephine, Maisie and Marjorie are also buried in Mason City Cemetery.

Josephine was my grandmother.

Thank you for the work you've done!

Matthias Van Loon (1837-1919)
Doug, I presume. In trying to sort out all the Van Loons from Luzerne Co, Pennsylvania, I came across your entry on findagrave. If I may, Mattias & Temperance Van Loon were both 72 yrs of age in 1850 when Matthias (above) was 13 yrs of age. I believe this is his grandparents. His father, James Van Loon's first wife died Nov, 1949, and the 18502 census lists him & his 2 sons individually in 3 adjacents homes in Jackson Twp, Luzerne Co,PA. Matthias' younger brother, John C. Van Loon b.1842 is included in a Lamoreux house-hold and the father, James, b.1804 in a second Lamoreaux household. Take a look at the actual census if this sounds confusing. Lois from PA

Hi Doug the bug,

FYI: I found a new site which had my gr-gr-grandfather listed, but the reason for this message is that it also included Joel E. Johnson. Whatever your connection is to him, he's listed by you at so I thought you might be interested in my discovery.

Have fun with your ongoing searches.
