Bio and Links
Bio Photo If anyone is interested in Doan/Doane/Done/Dowen, etc., genealogy, please consider joining the Doane Family Association. Information can be found here:

Some names of interest in my own family line include Lowther, Thistle, Milne, Henderson, Zirkle, Tedrow, Briix, and Blythe, my great-grandparents' names. My husband's family names include Doan, Corder, Dokken, Tangen, Goff, Allen and Peterson. Please send corrections/ updates; I want things to be accurate.

My grandmother, Wanda Zirkle Jilka, and great-aunt, Veda Zirkle Vickery, compiled a book commonly referred to as "The Red Book," "Zirkle Branches 1725-1978, Yesteryears and Yesterdays." There are several copies for sale if anyone is interested. It mainly outlines the history of two Zirkle/Zerkel branches which left VA, went to OH, then settled in Richland, Shawnee Co, KS.

"Life is not separate from death. It only looks that way." Blackfoot Quote

"A Visit to the Gravesite"

Dear Ancestor,
Your Tombstone stands among the rest,
Neglected and alone.
The name and dates are chiseled here,
On polished marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care,
Though it is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I exist,
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you,
In flesh and blood and bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago,
I wonder if you could have known,
Would spread among the ones you left
In all the seeds you've sown.
I wonder how you lived and loved?
I wonder if you ever knew?
That someday I would find you in this spot,
And come to visit you?

Transfers to you
Greetings Becky,

I transferred three memorials to you in Maplewood Memorial. You indicated you had the obituary for Mary Beers. I would be grateful if you would e-mail it to me so I can put her obituary in my private genealogy files.

Have a wonderful day!

I deleted the birth info, I don't know where that came from.
Obit has been posted, thank you!
If he is family, send your contributor number by way of an edit to his memorial. I would be happy to transfer.
Thank you!

RE: Alice Thatcher Clark Breazeale
Thank you, I've made some updates. I bet my mother or her siblings knew Anabel (or her mother or husband), as they were from another of the missionary families there at the time. Thanks! -Dave

Thanks for the suggestion on Alice's memorial. I had come to the same conclusion after seeing her death certificate, which listed her daughter as Anabel Bijjani. Thankfully we have linked up Alice's memorial to Anabel, both husbands, and both parents. Again, thank you! -Dave
