Bio Photo 27-Jul-2015:
I have 106 new edits to be processed, a few new e-mails need to be completed, and I still have over 520 age calculations to do.

I will be getting all of those completed as soon as I can, because I have tons of great stuff to add to my blog!

This is a prototype of the bell that will be tied to my wrist when I get placed in a box and set into the ground; I want to be sure that someone hears it...

I found and fell in love with this site while doing some research on previous owners of my home that was built over 100 years ago.

There is an incredible rush when a little piece of information is discovered, and through this site, I have met some great folks and it has been absolutely thrilling to be able to provide information to those I never would have been able to be in contact with.

I was able to provide a photo of an ancestor to a Find A Grave member, and their e-mail to me was packed with such gratitude that I felt as if I had just given them ten million dollars.

That has awakened a real passion for me; I now spend whatever time that I can spare, finding and reading old newspapers and documenting all that I can to see what information I can provide to those who are researching their family history.

Hopefully, my finds will either contain new and exciting leads, or at least confirm already discovered information.

If any information needs to be added, edited, or linked up, just let me know and I will be more than happy to do that.

**New as of October 2014**
I created a blog called Ancestral Sightings to contain my genealogical clippings of information discovered throughout my travels and whom I can and cannot link to on Find A Grave.

Please come pay it a visit and let me know what you think!

Just wanted to let you know the information update came from Samuel's 1812 War Veteran's application. So I believe it should be accurate.

RE: David Walker Jr
No problem. David Sr would be my great uncle and his kids all cousins. We were never that familiar with that side of the family. My Great Grandfather passed at such a young age, and my Nana didn't stay in contact with them. So I'm finding all of this out and the relations as I go. Thanks for being so prompt with all the corrections, as I know I'm flooding you with them.

Thank you for correcting her name from Jane Hall Larimer to Jane Hull Larimer. I really appreciate it & I'm sure she will too.
I will delete mine now.
Thank you again.
