Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started the genealogy trail back in 1967 but got sidetracted by work etc. Only with my retirement,(2008), did I restart this passion. I trace my family, paint, write. In 2011, I traveled from state to state visiting the family graves. In spring of 2012, I finally made it to Ireland.
I am particularly focused on doing findagrave biographies with photos of relations and getting them all linked.
My surnames are;, McPHILLIPS,LYNCH, SULLIVAN, McCABE, BOLSINGER/BALSINGER, ARMSTRONG, KERNAHAN, FISHER, CRAFT, HIGGINBOTHAM, KEENER, CANTRELL, CHASTAIN, HAYES/HAYS, and WHITEHEAD. I've been helped by so many seasoned genealogy hunters across the states. What a great bunch of people do this!!!

If someone wants to copy my pictures I would like credit as being the source for them and it would be nice to have a heads up so I can check the facts that are presented about them. These people are my family so I appreciate this coordination and teamwork. Thank you.

IF ANYONE WANTS TO SEE MY FAMILY TREE ON ANCESTRY TO SEE HOW WE ARE RELATED JUST GIVE ME YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS AND YOU WILL GET TO SEE THE TREE FOR FREE. THIS WORKS WELL FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT ON ANCESTRY AND DON'T WANT TO JOIN. mY TREE IS QUITE EXTENSIVE.

MY EMAIL ADDRESS AS GENTRACKER WAS HACKED! IF YOU HAVE THAT ADDR. FOR ME DISCARD IT!

RE: Cantrell Family
my email is sweetgoober4@hotmail.com. Yes thank you Linda sent me to Sarah's grave. Sarah was married to william Edward cotton before doc Johnston. My profile picture is of sarah and william with their two daughters Nell and Ruth they had a son William Jackson cotton who was my grandfather.
My dad refered to Sarah as his Denny. I'm unsure about Winnie I know she was an orphan that David meet around the age of 15 or so in Alabama. They moved to licking with him his mother and 9 children. I have a picture of Sarah and I believe her siblings also.

Cantrell Family
I'm trying to do some research on my family history. Sarah Jane Cantrell was my Great Grandmother. I believe David and Winnie were her parents. My father told me they were from Licking Missouri. My dad has passed and I can not find where Sarah is buried and he was unsure. I know she remarried after my Great Grandpa William E. Cotton had passed to a Doc Johnston I believe his first name was James . Can u please help me find any information on Sarah?

RE: William W. Reynolds Sr. gravestone
Hi Dona- Your correct I did not put a notation on William's grave. He is a family member and if I am not working from the graveyard listing I neglect to do so. William is my great Aunt Louise's (Ristau) husband. I think only half the family have stones. The others I do take the location where they are buried so you do have a idea. (I forgot Wm.) Hope your finding everything ok. this is a very Large and interesting family. His brother Homer does have a stone- same cemetery. their parents are buried in Ottawa.

Jacob Fisher
Hi Dona, Do you have any info on Jacob Fisher, third child born to David C Fisher and Martha Lanning Fisher. I see him on the 1850 Census at age 6 (born 1844) And 1860 Census (age 15). The 1870 and 1880 Census lists one Jacob Fisher married to Cynthia. I don't know if this is my Jacob Fisher and cannot find any other information beyond this point.

Thanks Larry Beufve

RE: Annie Fisher and her family
You're Welcome....I like to take all the stones around the one I'm getting for a request when they all have the same name. Then, I can check, when I get home, to see if the photos need to be posted. Just happened I was going to that cem. & I got to take yours, too.....

RE: Amelia Fisher
Dona, after examining the 1850, 1860, 1870 & 1880 Census, I have concluded that Amelia Fisher was not a child of David C Fisher and Martha Lanning. David and Martha had four children:
John born 1839
Isaac born 1843
Jacob born 1844
Perry born 1849

Here is my email address: beufvelj@gmail.com

Please contact me. I have some interesting info to share with you concerning David C Fisher.

Amelia Fisher
Hi Dona, I am a distant cousin of Amelia Fisher, daughter of David C Fisher and Martha Lanning.
Information I have gleaned from others lead me to believe that Amelia married Joseph Wechter and together they had 12 children. My concern lies with the fact that Census records (specifically 1880, 1900 and 1910) show that Amelia's parents were born in Germany when they were actually born in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Joseph's parents were born in Germany. Do you think the census taker just copied ditto marks for Amelia by mistake? I just want to be sure I have the Correct Amelia Fisher.
