Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 65 years old and love doing family research. I live in Alvin, TX and love to fish. I have 3 little dogs that I adore. I believe in God and Country and the men & women who defend it. I'm also old, Irish and not shy. Have a great day.

I want everything to be as correct as I can make it. I do this out of respect for them and who they were. As I am also researching family I try to have the same consideration for others as I expect from them. Even with my own family if someone see's something they think is wrong I'd like to know it and then I may or may not change it according to what I have and what I know. I've learned not even gov documents are always correct nor name spellings on them. So good thing I like fishing because in some cases it takes a lot of it to find out anything or another family member in this up to their necks with lots of resources. I have two of those in my family.... God Bless all those dedicated to obtaining correct information and supporting and working together on sites like Find A Grave and Ancestry.

One thing that bothers me is people who add photo's of stones at such an angle or distance that it can not be read or with flowers obstructing the information on the stone. To me if the stone can't be read DON'T PUT IT ON THE MEMORIAL. The stone has important information on it that we need as verification of information. To me take flowers off and get over the stone and close enough to be able to read it in the photo. The stone is the most important thing, not the flowers on it.

PLEASE DO NOT POST A CLOSE UP OF A SECTION OF THE STONE IF THE COMPLETE PICTURE OF THE STONE CAN BE READ. THERE IS NO NEED FOR IT AND IT TAKES UP PHOTO SPACE. THANK YOU.

Roanna: I received your copy of a death certificate for my 2nd great grandmother, Mary Wilson Leatherman buried in the Quasqueton, IA Cemetery.
Mary's father was Castleton Wilson so there is a mistake in her death certificate. Also on the Certificate it list she was buried on Jan 3, 1884, but she didn't die until Jan 10, 1884. I am leaving my entry for Mary Ann (Polly) Wilson Leatherman as I have it listed.

Wm Arthur Duhl
Roanna,

I have additionally added a childhood picture of Arthur and his younger brother James Edward. J. Edward is my wife's GPa. The reference in Wm Arthur's birth record to Milton is for Milton Township of Jackson County Ohio. A portion of the town of Wellston is in Milton Township. I do not, however, know for sure that he was born within the city limits of Wellston, only that it was within the township. Thank you.

Bonnie Bethea
3rd cousin
Hi Roanna, my name is Bonnie Bethea. I contacted Rita Osbourne and I believe we are all related I'm told you both are my 3rd cousins. I'm trying to get to know my family tree and Rita gave me your link to your profile so I figured I would introduce myself and say hello.

RE: Your Loss
Thank you Roanna for the thoughts and prayers. It means a lot to us. We knew she was going to pass away from the cancer but it was quicker then we thought it would be. We hoped we would have had more time but God had other plans and took her home. We are still trying to deal with it and taking it day by day. Thanks again.

Hugs, Melissa

RE: Susannah Margartha Dieffenbaugh Hull
My connection is through Maj. Peter T. Hull who married Susanna Margarita Dieffenbaug on Nov. 25, 1750 in Lancaster, Penn. Later moved to Crabbottom, Pendleton, (Highland County) Va. Susanna's father was Johann Martin Dieffenbach who was born in Germany in 1649 and immigrated to Lancaster, Penn. where he died in 1716.

There is an interesting "Google Play" eBook (Free) entitled A History of Highland County, Virginia that goes into great detail about the pioneer families who settled this mountain area. Because of the limited number of families there was much intermarriage within the various families. Therefore, you keep seeing the same family names over and over again. Two of the families are the Hulls (Hohl) and the Trimbles. The book is worth a quick survey to see if any of the names apply to your family.

Nice to hear from you Roanna.
