Bio and Links
I started getting interested in genealogy in about 2000. I thought my family tree was a "bamboo" tree. Both of my parents were only children, therefore I have no aunts, uncles or cousins. I have been pleasantly surprised by how large my family actually is. Every person I have listed is somehow related to myself or my wife, either directly or through marriage.
Feel free to email me with changes or additions. Any online information, including pictures, may be used for any genealogical purposes. I'm sure there are probably mistakes, and I would like to make the proper corrections.

This is an automated email letting you know that your recent edit for the John Benson (1809 - 1862) Find A Grave memorial has been declined.
General reason: No change. The memorial is up to date with submitted edit.

I got your decline to change info for him, here is where the part of his info came from. It would be really nice if you could personalize it with some of his history. He is my first cousin 4x removed.

Please recheck the dates for this person. The social security death index records the birth date as 21 December 1949 with the death date in October 1975. I would like to record and source the correct information.

Clarissa & James Hale
I descend from James & Clarissa through their eldest child, Cora Philena who married Robert Anderson Jellison who is #47856069. Their daughter, Martha Peninah married George Meredith in South Whitley, IN. They were my great grandparents, so James & Clarissa were my ggg grandparents. I've never been in contact with any Meredith, Jellison or Hale! I see that one of you is related! What a great find!

William Joseph Eaglin
Dave, I'm working on my late wife's family tree - do you have much information about William Joseph Eaglin and his wife Mary Elizabeth (Marie) Bernhardt? My wife's mother was an Eaglin - we all are from Indianapolis/Indiana. Thanks in advance for a response.
