Bio and Links
My journey through genealogy began with the search for my grandfather's grandmother in the Spring of 1982. Since that time, my travels have taken me to interesting places, met amazing people, and gleaned a wealth of knowledge.

In 2001, I discovered Find-A-Grave and began contributing to the ever-growing wealth of information. After 28 years in the nursing profession, I suffered a major stroke ln 2008.

No longer able to go "out in the field", my research time is spent on the internet.

For anyone wishing to update Find-A-Grave information, please email the above address.

Wondering if you would link Anna Grace Smith Lieurance (#108109770) to her father Franklin E. Smith.
Thanks, Susan

RE: Wesley Roy Risdon
Thank you for the message you left on my father's memorial. I have been working at genealogy for about ten years now. I am Wes's eldest child and his namesake. I still work full time, so this has become my part time passion.

Thank you for maintaining the memorial of my brother-in-law, Jim Bonholzer #32133067.

I wonder if you would kindly transfer management of his memorial to me? I am, until a younger descendant steps forward, the official Family Historian for all things relative to the family and can add additional data and family links to Jim's record.

It would be greatly appreciated. I am very close to his son Steve who I'm sure would also appreciate the transfer. It is likely he will be the one to maintain family genealogical records in the future.

Thank you again,

Name correction 39463020

Name correction for Nellie Lucretia Cook Pauley.

Her certificate of marriage to Edward Matthew Pauley has her name as Nell Laura Cook.

Nell Laura Cook Pauley aka Nellie Lucretia Cook Pauley on Find-A-Grave.

Somewhere along the way the L. became Lucretia, but in error.

Census records from 1900 to 1940 has Nell or Nellie or Nellie L. And no record has been found showing Lucretia as a middle name. Only Laura has been found in her marriage record above.

It may be a good idea to reference the Lucretia name in comments.

Names correction for 39463012

Name correction for Edward Mathias Pauley.

World War I draft record shows middle name as Mathew even though it is hard to read.

His certificate of marriage to Nell Laura Cook has his middle name as Matthew.

Nell aka Nellie Lucretia Cook Pauley

Amanda Lennick

I just realized that I made a duplicate memorial for Amanda Lennick. I see that you hardly have any information for her and mine has her birth date, death date, pictures, and obituary. I would like to maintain her memorial because I knew many of the victims of the mudslide. If this is a possibility, thanks. If this is not something you would like to do than please contact me and I will delete mine, but please update yours with accurate current information for the families.

Blessings, Michelle Hutcheson
