Bio and Links
Bio Photo My researching of family began, after the birth of my grandson Max in 1997, when my daughter-in-law gave me a version of Family Tree Maker. As a child I always loved mysteries. I read my mother's Ellery Queen novels, watched Perry Mason episodes and my favorite board game was Clue. I always thought how much fun it would be to work as a detective. I guess, in my own way, I do.

I firmly believe that our ancestors deserve more than just dates on their memorials. It is because of that philosophy that I try to add as much of the information that is available to me. Thank you for either your help or your understanding when I fall short.

The surnames I am searching and recording from my paternal side are:
Gibson, Keller, Miller, Ploehs, Reed and Walkinshaw
& from my maternal side, they are:
Beamer, Cunningham, Nelson, Peterson, Park, Parke, Parks, Perrell, Snow and Wiseman

For those who wonder...
Why the number of memorials managed is higher than the number of memorials created?
This is due to some generous F*A*G contributors who decided to transfer some of their memorials to myself and others.
Thank you...
I feel honored to be one of the recipients entrusted to care for these postings.

Susan Hale Kuckolls parents
Hello. Thanks you for the memorial and information for Susan Nuckolls. I have a question about her siblings. I am from the family of Lucinda her sister. We have that Martin and Jestain had 10 children and then he remarried Mahala and had at least one other child. If you have information to show that these were not the children of his first wife please let me know. Thanks!

Please delete the following notes from your memorial:

Following the death of her mother, who died giving birth to her, her father married Lucinda's sister Sarah. Thus her Aunt became her stepmother and her half-siblings were also her cousins."

Emma's father did not marry Sarah after Lucinda's death.

Thank you.

Sarah Salome Eby Spangle
I am trying to do some research on the Eby family. Can you tell me anything more about the bio listed on your memorial Jacob Henry Spangle (1794-1868). Sarah was his wife and also I believe my 2nd great grand Aunt. I am trying to get source information regarding this family.
I am also a Find a Grave contributor here in Northern CA - thanks for your time.

Richard M Sengle
My husband is the grandson of Richard Sengle and he is the only son of Margaret Sengle. His father was never officially known but she is buried next to the man we presume is his father. She put her brother Georges name on his birth certificate. I am adding an obituary for Charles Sengle to his memorial that we found in some family documents. Richard had 3 daughters that are all still living.
