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!

Thank you for your kindness in transferring my family's memorials to me. I am absolutely thrilled, and promise to fill them up with accurate information and photographs--for others to enjoy.

Mary Lue Venturi
I submitted a request to edit the parents of Mary Lue Venturi. I am guessing I am the one who submitted it wrongly in the first place. I am sorry. This time I know I got it right. Thank you for taking your time to do this it is greatly appreciated

Charles P Adams photo
Hi Leon,

I was wondering if I could have your permission to use the photo of Charles P. Adams's (Find A Grave Memorial# 58911971) headstone that you submitted in 2011. He is my 1st cousin 3x removed. With your permission, I would like to save the photo to my online family tree. I would make sure to give you credit for the original photo.

Thank you very much,
Pat McEneaney

RE: Bertie Ping Crosby Philpott
Yes, Bertie Crosby Ping Philpott is the daughter of Nelson Seamour Crosby and Olive Mae Pettay Crosby. If you would link them up, that would be great. I have been linking up several people recently, but I guess that one slipped by me. Thanks. Bertie is a grand aunt of my wife (Robin). Bertie's sister, Viola Mae Crosby Stewart is my wife's grandmother. Do you know the name of Bertie's second husband (Philpott)? I saw one of your other memorials for Lester George Philpott and thought that might be the one, but was not sure so I did not request it to be linked to Bertie. Thanks for your help.
