Bio and Links
Bio Photo Living in Ashburn, VA. I enjoy looking up folks in the family and helping where I can for others.

I am researching the Knoff line. Currently this means I am stuck on Frederick C Knoff, born 1820 Kingdom of Hanover and died in Shawnee Kansas. I have his will, land purchases, etc from once he moved his family to Missouri and then to Kansas. He exists in the 1851 census of Waterloo, Canada West, Canada. From 1820 in Germany to 1851, I have zero on him. I have no idea what the C is for in his name, the true origin of him, any family whatsoever. I have a complete blank on this information. If you could help, please let me know.

I tried to get individual photos of George & Louise's crypts, but they were VERY high up and quite small (about 7" square). They are located in a lovely sun room in the main building of the cemetery. I do hope this suffices - if not, I am willing to try again for you.

RE: Matthew Woodson
Glad to meet you. I really wanted to get my info into the latest Woodson Book update but missed it. My Woodson line starts with Nancy the daughter of Matthew's son Jacob and his wife Dorthea Peers. Matthew, Jacob, Nancy. Nancy married John Mahan Jr. in Mercer Co.,KY in 1813 and they moved to Hendricks Co.,IN in 1833. The Mahan line goes John Jr., Woodson, Luther, Charles, Argil Sr., me. My Woodson's go back to Robert and Elizabeth Farris I think he's a Potato Hole.

Brian, I am in the process of adding all the children of Marion Monroe & Elizabeth Collins FIKES, since these are my husband's direct uncles through his dad, Lewis. I see you have added Carroll Collins Fikes.
Would you be interested in a transfer to me?

Lucy A. & Celinda A.
Who knows maybe they called her Lucy and back then that is what they would put. I really believe it is Celinda as it makes sense. Since Celinda passed in Auburn and her brother George Selden Betterley is at the Old Auburn Cemetery that is where I put her memorial. Memorial# 46846933

I think I've managed today to get the family linked and updates sent to the managers of the memorials. I found her mother, dad & sibblings.
Nice to have them all linked together.
