Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family off and on since the 1980s but now I am doing it almost daily.

Researching Hartman(n), Habermann, Gundersen, Gunderson, Oneal. O'Neal, Porter, Kimmey, Welch, McBryde, and all associated families on my side.

For my husband's side I am researching the Arndt, Kroening, Behling, Steffen, Pagel, and all related families.

I became interested in genealogy when my second husband passed away and I did not know anything about his extended family. Seems like after all these years I still haven't made much headway since they all were from Alabama and back then they were all born at home without any paper trail. I'll keep chugging along until I find what I'm looking for. :-)

If you have any information on the Wiley, Powell, or Martin families of Alabama, please let me know.

If any memorial, except those of my family, are of your family, please use the "EDIT" button to ask for a transfer. Just let me know your relationship.

Note: Please refrain from placing death certificates on any memorial I have on FAG.

Shera LaPoint
Milton O'Neal & Elda LaPoint O'Neal
Hello Brenda,

I am researching my husband's LaPoint family. Edla was the daughter of Paul LaPoint & Adelia Sarver. My husband's grandfather (Icgular) was a half brother to Elda. He was a son of Paul LaPoint and Alice Breaux (Paul's second wife). I was wondering if you would have any pictures of Elda and her family. I have a few pictures of Paul and his children with his second wife. My email is and I am also a member of findagrave. Thank you

John McKnight # 16136723
I have been doing some research on the McKnight family from Roger Lee McKnight (1767-1851) and came across John McKnight (1839-1862) who died in San Antonio, Tx. You have his first wife listed as Elizabeth Clementine Fish but I think this actually Sarah Elizabeth Fish (born 10 Mar 1839 in Indiana, died 1 June 1902 San Antonio, Bexar, Tx). Her findagrave memorial # is 10912773.

Also John's father was George Washington McKnight (b. 1796 NC - d. 1869 Lawrence County, IN, # 67693250) and his mother was Mary McGee (1803-1873, 67693327).

Please let me know if you have evidence to the contrary.

best regards,

Jay Cantrell

RE: Stephanie Simon
If you would like to transfer her to me, that would be wonderful. I know it's not required, so I wouldn't even ask, but I would be most grateful for your consideration.

Looking for ancestors of James Henry O'Neal 1885-1966. His son Roy F. O'Neal (1912-1946) was my grandfather. I believe James' father was named John Henry O'Neal but I cannot find anything on him. we are in Lebanon, TN Wilson County.
Please email me at if you think you have a match. Thanks.

John J. Kelly
Hi BA51- I received your suggestion for John Joseph Kelly, however, This does not appear to be your John Kelly. The one your referenced is only a year old and his father died in 1866. John Kelly is a pretty common Irish name so there is probably another one somewhere. :-)
