Valerie has been doing genealogy as long as I can remember, but she went "obsessive" with it after our son's birth in 1996.

It's tough living in Southern California with Valerie's roots in the midwest back to Pennsylvania & Virginia and Bob's in Alabama and Georgia.

We made some wonderful friends and found lots of cousins. We try to post what we find so that others will not have to beat their heads against all of the "brick walls" we have. We want to make our ancestors more than just dates and a stone in the ground.

FindAGrave is the best Family tree we have found.

Just let us know if you would like us to make a correction or add a link to a memorial we have created.

We are also willing to do transfers if you can show a close link. We do not completely adher to the F/G protocals for transfers.

Happy Hunting!

RE: Sarah Looney Miller
Hello, I do not have the marriage date on Sarah & John Miller. My brother-in-law lived with us for three years. He had worked on the family tree for many years, but only had it on paper. He and I sat at the computer, he told me information and I entered it into the computer.
I have done some work on the Miller tree since he passed away. It is had work when you work on your own tree, my first husband's (deceased)tree for my three children to know their ancestors and try to add to Miller's. If there is anything I can help you with let me know. I will be glad to help you if I have the information. I do not have my tree on line but will eventually do that. In the meantime I will by happy to share anything I have with you. Margaret

I go thru Fayette, Fulton, Douglas, on way to Carroll, will go Heard, thru Coweta to Fayette on way home. I was a truck driver for 11 years in that part of Ga, I know all of the short cuts. No problem, also will go to Wooster for your other pictures Saturday. I don't mind the gas, it's not like I do this every day. I enjoy getting out, getting old ( don't tell my sister I said that) I need the exorcise for my heart, also I enjoy cemeteries...Ed

RE: Levi Lochbaum
I am related to Amanda (Baker) Lochbaum. Her Brother Samuel Etter Baker is my great-great-great grandfather. I found the Lochbaum name in Amanda's mother's will (see record on FindAGrave). I will try to find an obit for Levi. I had obits for Margaret Mahon and Anna "Annie" Reed...I just added them tonight. Further on down the Reed line is Sam Reed- born in 1917 in my house- another reason for my Reed/Lochbaum interest.

Levi Lochbaum
Thank you for the info on Levi Lochbaum you sent me. I have been looking for Levi & his wife for about 3 years now. I happened to find Amanda's obit one day, but wondered about Levi. ...couldn't find his death certificate on Ancestry, because I didn't try Laughbaum!! I suspect they do not have grave markers or they are covered. I plan to make it to Fayetteville in 2 or 3 weeks to check. Thanks again!

John Laughbaum
Sadly John Laughbaum in Biddle cem. did not have a marker, it also is not listed where his plot is. I added a picture from the Biddle Cem. book.

RE: William Nixon & Samuel Nixon Sponsorship
Dear Valerie,
No, I am not related in any way to the Nixon Brothers...I have always just had such respect for any man or woman who chose to put on a uniform for our country, and this site is really an opportunity to keep some of those names and stories - I wish that it could be every single individual on here! - 'up and out' where people can read about them. While my own kin seems to have especially been right in the middle of it all, as I say, for WWII, I have traced my own family members in every war, and I know that I am so touched when I see folks visiting my people. =) I hope that the sponsoring will bring extra visitors to the Nixon Boys, as well as their family is more than an honor to sponsor these gentlemen. I hope we talk again - Have a good night! Best, Rhonda and Gannon Blue

Daniel Lochbaum, 77th Illinois
Dear Valerie, No I am not related to Daniel Lochbaum, whose mortal remains were laid in Springdale Cemetery in Peoria. Since 1985, I have been tracking down and writing about the Civil War veterans from Peoria County. I wrote a column in two local newspapers over the years and had accumulated thousands of pages of information about these thousands of veterans who came through Peoria on the way to the war. I found out about Find A Grave just over three years and almost every day I spend between one and two hours adding information about them to their Find A Grave biographies. I hope to add more yet to Daniel's site. I have added your name and contact information to his site and when I am done adding all I can, if you are interested in managing it, I would be glad to transfer it to you. In time, I think I will be able to fill in much of the missing information, however, in the mean time, I would appreciate hearing from you if you have any of this information at hand. Some people who I have come in contact with through Find A Grave feel Find A Grave is not the place for biographical material like this. I feel, especially because it's free to the public, that's it's the perfect place for all information that I can write about these veterans of the Civil War and I don't feel I can say enough about the veterans who have given so much for their country. Thanks for all you are doing to preserve the family history. Sincerely, Baxter

Daniel Lochbaum, 77th Illinois
Dear Valerie, Thanks for the additional information that you sent me on Private Lochbaum. I have added this as well as other information. Please take a look at what I have now. I will continue to search for information about him and his family, but, if these are any missing pieces of information that you can help me with now, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and Thanks for all you are doing for Find A Grave. It is and always will be GREATLY APPRECIATED!! Sincerely, Baxter
