Bio and Links
Bio Photo Long-time instructor of writing and women's studies at Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH. Born in Galion, OH 8/15/1952 to John C. Mahaffey (11/23/1915-5/26/1979) and Thelma Ray Mahaffey Wroten (6/6/1927-). Mother of Edward Daniel Simpson (7/14/1989-), born in Grand Rapids, MI. BA in English from California State University Fullerton, 1979; M.Ed in secondary education from Nazareth College of Kalamazoo, MI, 1988; PhD in Rhetoric and Writing from Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH, 2004. Addictive reader, interested in geneaology, folk music and sacred harp, Anglican, guitar player, singer, guardian of two rescue dogs.

I enjoy walking in cemeteries and have made it a personal project to photograph and record the headstones of military personnel in addition to requests in local cemeteries, in honor of their service and the service of my father, stepfather, and uncles in World War II and Korea. If any of these service persons or others I have added are family members and/or you wish to manage their memorials, just let me know. I am happy to transfer.

Anyone who wants to use my photos in their family tree, on findagrave, or any other site may do so without my permission.

Thanks so much for the photo of the Kellums. Freida is my dad's sister. His other sister is buried in that cemetery too I believe...Margaret White Moore. She died in 1995. I gave money to her attorney for a stone, but don't believe he put one up.

RE: Porter and Ruth Crawford
Hello Cynthia,

No, at this time I don't know why Porter Crawford was in Havana. I'll be sure to let you know if I learn more about him.

Best regards,

Thank you very much for the transfers.
We have worked hard researching his mother's line and it's nice to see the line open up finally.

Best wishes and be careful.

Thank you for notifying me of the parents of Warder Rollins so I could link them together on Find a Grave. There is no need for you to transfer them to me as they are very distant relation and I put him and wife on Find a Grave in memory of my in-laws who were very close friends.
