Bio and Links
Like many Americans, I am a mutt. And proud of it. Down through the generations, I am the result of two people's love, not caring what their nationality is. My lines go back to England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Norway and Sweden. Oh, there's a little Holland in there too. :-) I have direct lines that fought in the American Revolution and the Civil War. I also have direct lines that migrated as late as 1905.

I became interested in genealogy a few years ago when I went to the Scottish Games in my area. Since then, I have been hooked!
I consider it my own personal "treasure hunt"!

Because of being familiar with monuments, in the business for 15 years, I enjoy taking requests for photos of them. Have been doing that for a few years, now.

I have found many memorial pages of my family and have added my photos to them. The only time I have requested a transfer was when I knew the info is inaccurate. Which has only been twice.

So that's me, in a nutshell. I do have one question for anyone reading this.


PS You may use any of my photos in your own personal trees.

RE: Thomas & Myrtle Jenkins
Hey Sue, No direct relationship. Thomas was the father of Sam Jenkins who married my Aunt Geraldine McCormick. Checked your Ancestry tree...but saw you'd already discovered this. :-)
Thanks for contacting me. Jeanie...aka..Nativegal

RE: Elizabeth Ester Shone Thoman
Hi Sue, I don't have a plot number for Elizabeth, but I believe the building in the background of the photo is Blessed Sacrament School.

I hope this helps,
Laurie (Denmother)

RE: Achsah Clark
LOL, you should have told me it was a dup. I sure don't mind removing mine. I wasn't sure what you were asking.

RE: Achsah Clark
I got the information on him from the cemetery records at Albany Rural. He was buried in the Garretson Methodist Episcopal Church area so assume they added the information.
I don't see a picture of his stone, have you added it yet? Let me know when you do and I'll correct the spelling

No by the time dad was in high school his family was living in Syracuse. Hartmann is the family name for the area along with Kappes, Relke and Gampfer. The last three names are found in my family tree about three to four generations back.

How about you, what are your family surnames and are they in the Albany area?
