Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy since 1976. This has been a fun hobby looking up my ancestors and finding out who and where they are buried. It shows me what stock I come from my heritage.

Plus this is a great source for finding others in my tree to fill in the gap of blanks in my family history.

I use this as a training place for helping others trying to find their ancestors to learn where they come from and who they may be related to.

Researching surnames on Boelling, Gardner,
Ungry, Wert, McLaughlin, Gustin, Brinkmann, Black,
Henry and others.

Been known to be a Gravestone whisperer.

Can you please tell us how you are related to us Vances. We're all trying to muddle through all the misinformation about our family we keep finding on this site and ancestry. Thank you.

Nancy Vance Simpson/Nancy Vance Lewis
I am totally confused. You have created 63370825 and 41586376 - I think one is the sister and one is the niece or something. Regardless, Solomon and Nancy have the same year and both Nancys were married to William Simpson. Don't think so. Please verify your information and correct.

Thank you.

I noticed you have John Vance's daughter's date of birth 1801 same as Solomon but on you have 12/5/1810. Also wouldn't her name be Nancy Vance Simpson since she was married to William Simpson?

Family says she and her son are buried in the same plot but it is does not have a stone.

*Family gave me this info so I do know they are there no matter what the office says. This has happened several times to me and I did find their actual plots. Thanks so very much for trying~~

Hi, I was looking for a John Hinton when I came across the document I posted on John Hinson's memorial page. It shows him dying in 1884 instead of 1890.

Eleanor (Baum) Boelling
Hello Tom,

Eleanor & Otto Boelling were my husband's grandparents. He never met Otto, as he passed away before my husband was born, but I think he did get to meet Eleanor. Their daughter, Esther, was my husband, Jerry's, mother. If you would like any information, please let me know!
