Bio and Links
Bio Photo "It seems to me that the earth may be borrowed but not bought. It may be used but not owned. It gives itself in response to love and tending.... But we are tenants and not possessors, lovers and not masters. The Planet belongs to the wind and the rain, to the sun and the seasons, to the cosmic secrecy of seed, and beyond all, to time."

My mother passed away in 1999 and I was the recipient of boxes and boxes of old photographs and memorabilia from courageous departed ancestors who emigrated here and my interest in genealogy began. Now, with the help of Find A Grave, I have been able to locate many family members' graves. Thanks for helping fill in the blanks. And now that I have become a volunteer, I hope to pay it forward.

RE: Bahl
Hi Charlene: Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I've traced my ancestry back to Illinois, Wadsworth County, through the Delaney family. But I don't see anyone named David Bahl so far; my Bahl relatives came from Germany and Saratove Russia.

RE: Betsy Rand
You're welcome.

There's a Nancy Rand in my family tree, who married James Packard in Milton in 1807, and was a resident of Milton at that time. She would have been born about 1785. Do you know if there's any relation between her and these Rands?

RE: Major Joseph Bowman
I posted it. You say your 4th great grandfather served under him. Who was he? My 5X great grandfather, Captain Edward Worthington, was with Clark and Bowman on those campaigns. Worthington was also burned when Bowman was, but survived. Tamie
