Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching the families of my wife and mine for about thirty years. It is great to learn about family and their migrations.
If anyone finds mistakes on my entries or would like to add information, please contact me. I have been going to cemeteries in my area and have been entering photos and info so many of my entries aren't family. It is always great to meet new family and friends.

Genealogy Research
My family
Barton/Lambert/Goforth/Schooley/White/Miller/ Dunn/Massie/Eggers research is in IL, IA, IN, KY, ENG, MA, DE.

My wife's family
Gibson/McCandless/Turner/Dunn/Ramsey/Brammer/McCully/Wilson genealogy research is in MO, TN, PA, IN.

My wife and I have four children and nine grandchildren which makes our life very enjoyable and now we are blessed with seven great grandchildren. Besides searching for our family, I enjoy wood carving.
The Good Lord has blessed me in many ways!

Remember, "No one is truly gone, until they are forgotten".

With the memorials I have set up, if you find any mistakes, please let me know so I can get them corrected. I'm not perfect, but I strive for perfection in all that I try to do on Find A Grave.

When requesting links, please give me the name of the person plus the ID number. This insures I link the correct person, mother, father or spouse.

On ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS, LINKS or TRANSFERS for any Memorial, PLEASE USE THE EDIT BUTTON and Suggest A Correction or provide additional information. Any of the above posted on my message board will be ignored and deleted.

IN OTHER WORDS, SEND A SAC! Please, no bulk transfer requests!

I will be happy to transfer to a relative if it is within the Find A Grave guidelines, otherwise it will be at my discretion. Please state your relationship of the memorial you want transferred. Just saying they are family is not acceptable.

We want the memorials of those we loved to be as nice as possible.

Thank you!

Ina Lee Thompson
Ina Lee Thompson was born September 22, 1895 in Bates County Missouri and died in Prowers County, Colorado January 1, 1931. Her parents were Willis and Medley Belle (Gragg) Thompson. She had one brother, Henry born in 1898.

Shorty after the 1900 US census, the family, including Medley Belle's mother, Martha Jane Leakey, migrated to Colorado in a covered wagon and settled in Prowers County, Colorado.

Ina Lee and Isaac Carl Cartwright were married on November 20, 1913 and had four children that reached adulthood:

Eugene Monroe Cartwright 1916-1996
Blanche Cartwright 1917-1969
Erma Isola Cartwright 1920-1998
Laura Mildred Cartwright 1923-1995

Isaac Carl Cartwright
Isaac Carl Cartwright was born February 1, 1859 in West Mannington, Marion, West Virginia, the son of Thornton F. Cartwright and Nancy (Kerns) Cartwright.

He was married first to Rosella Holt on March 8, 1894 in Springfield Baca, Colorado. Secondly he married Ina Lee Thompson (born September 22, 1895 in Bates County Missouri) on November 20, 1913. Because his second wife, Ina Lee, was only 18 when they married, he maintained that he was born in 1869, hence the error on his tombstone and his age. He was actually 84 at the time of his death.

This union had five children:

Infant died in 1914
Eugene Monroe Cartwright 1916-1996
Blanche Cartwright 1918-1969
Erma Isola Cartwright 1920-1998
Laur Mildred Cartwright 1923-1995

RE: Martha Miller
I'll see what I can find on her. Maybe it will help you out. My old mind forgets a lot of "stuff", so it's good we can all work together to expand these sites.

Thanks for all you do to promote family genealogies.

Thanks a million. You were so fast you actually made the edits before I finished my search for other connections to her, her husband & children.

Your donation of time & energy helps so many of in our ongoing family hunts.

Stay safe & healthy.

RE: Martha Miller
Leon-Sorry I have forgotten who this Martha Miller is that you were inquiring about. Can you give me a hint where she is buried, and maybe I can figure out where I got the information. I'll be glad to try to help you out.

Margaret T. Arnet Crowder
Hello Leon

Thank you for the transfer of Margaret, I really appreciate it. Margaret and I our 1st cousin once removed. While I had contacted you and Vaughan Mavir about the duplicate memorials on Margaret, the both of you were so kind to transfer her memorials to me. Not sure if you know or not but Find A Grave will not let me delete either of the memorials as I did not create them. I was wondering if I transferred the memorial that you created back to you, if you would delete it since yours was created after Vaughan's? Please advice me.

Thank you so much for your kindness and time.

John Prine FAG # 42364433

John Prine is my great grand uncle. You did such a thorough job on his memorial that although you did not list Prine as a family name for you or your wife, I wondered if there is a connection? I have a lot of information on the Prine family and believe I have identified his mother. I would like to contact one of his family members to discuss my findings and maybe get some feedback. If you know of any family member that might be interested, my name is Sally Berta Pearson. I am on Ancestry, Facebook, and am a contributor to Find A Grave if they want to check on me. My email is

Thank you so much!
