Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy and appreciation of cemeteries came from my maternal grandmother. I belong to the Society of Mayflower Descendants through her ancestors. These ancestors, to date, are Henry Samson (and the aunt who raised him, Ann Cooper Tilley, who had no children of her own), Edward Fuller, James Chilton and his daughter Mary (who married John Winslow), and Richard Warren. More to come, possibly.

I thought Grandma's genealogy was well researched and documented, but I only knew a fraction of it.

Very little is known about Grandpa's ancestry and that continues to be the challenge. His Bunting and Murphy ancestry, however, is known and documented in Livingston and Washtenaw County MI.

I have met many friends and relatives in the process of unraveling my family's past, and it's become a terrific hobby. I don't know what I did in my spare time before.

Some of the names I research are Gardner, Bunting, Murphy, Eastman, Sprout, Damon, Scovill, Collins, Reed, Hinchey, Lassen, and last but not least, Rasmussen.

On my husband's side I research Jacques and Boucher.

Good luck in all your genealogy travels. The road is so exciting. If the work I have done on Find A Grave, with my husband's supportive agreement, helps even one person, our goal will be met.

DNA has really helped us, personally, to find out who we are. We thought we knew, but there were many interesting and mysterious elements that we would never have dreamed of in a million years.

Keep searching!

RE: Nancy R. Walton-McClanahan
My pleasure to honor her. I've been looking for Mr. McClanahan. I found his wife rec'd a pension for his service, it went thru Sept 22, 1863. I believe he may have been in the battle at Gettysburg. I am going to try and contact the park, this next week. In the meantime, I believe I will go ahead and make a memorial for him. He deserves the honor.

RE: Your Recent Problem
Thank you for your kind message, I am very confused why some choice to be disrespectful of those that have passed.

RE: John M. Green-Hollywood Forever Cemetery
John M. Green is my great-grandfather's brother and I have done lots of research on the Green family. I have copies of John's Civil War records also. I am in the process of going thru my genealogy notebooks and adding everything to Ancestry. I've had Ancestry for years and have just had too many other projects on my plate to always add it to my tree. You can correspond with me thru my email address on my profile page.

Your Photo Request For Mary Jacques
Hello, just letting you know she already has a record in the cemetery across the road from Sacred Heart, which is St. Mary's and is also where her husband Fabian is buried. Here is the link to that record:

RE: The Sprouts

Wirt Barton is my grandfather and his mother was a sprout.

What is your connection?
