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 very much for his transfer. I've now added a bio to his memorial page. If you happen to know his wife's maiden name, could you pass it on to me.

RE: Samuel Wayne Milligan
Samuel Milligan b 1816 #47717306 is my ancestor. I know for sure that Samuel Alexander Milligan b. 1845 #44538979 is his son. I am pretty confident that Samuel Robert Adams Milligan b, 1868 # 94464617 is the son of Samuel Alexander Milligan and his first wife Martha A. Dunn b 1844 # 72996662. She died 10 days after the birth of Samuel R. A. Milligan.

However, Samuel Wayne Milligan's linkages are not correct. . Samuel Wayne #104234439 was born in 1916. It's not impossible for Samuel Robert Adams to be his father although Samuel R.A. would have been 48 years old. Samuel Wayne's mother could have been Samuel R.A.'s second wife Ida Montgomery b 1879 # 94465142. She would have been 37 when Samuel Wayne was born.

Samuel Wayne's mother is listed as Martha Dunn and it should be Ida Montgomery. I think this change would correct the issue with Samuel R.A. showing up as both Samuel Wayne's father and sibling.

Someone linked a grandmother as a mother. Easy mistake to make with 4 generations of Samuels to keep straight.

Leon, thank you for all your contributions to the Findagrave website. I would like permission to use your photographs of my relatives' grave sites in my Family Tree files. I use the photos as source media and will gladly give you credit for your work. Becky

RE: Bessie Smith
Thank you, but I think my friend, Bessie was married to Earl. They lived in Arcata in the 1950s and moved to Arizona during the late 1960s. I do not think they had any kids.

I tried to find them later, but evidently Earl died and Bessie may have gone to live with relatives just before her death.

Now, we have findagrave and I would like to honor this fine lady's memory. I ran across a book she wrote that gave me some clues as to her parents and possibly grandparents who lived in CA.

Thanks again for getting back to me.

RE: Walter Carter & Jeany Sanders
Thanks - You are correct, I have not started contributing memorials. I'm not living close to any of my family and haven't started filling requests from others on the site, but I will when the weather warms up.

I was simply following what I was seeing on other memorials. I do appreciate you making these connections for my family members.

Grace to you,
