Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I enjoy doing research on my extended family, something I inherited from both sides of the family. Their work has given me a headstart. Families that I'm researching include Lapham, Wixson, Hillyard-Hyliard, Jesseph, Rappleye, Van Nuys, Ellison, Cantrell, Gennrich-Genrich, Wilk-Wilkie-Wilczewski, Hoff, and Filipowicz-Phillips. And my wife's family Sawyer, Mumm, Limb, Curry, Barkuloo, Schmidt, and Green.
If I can be of any assistance, please ask. I would also like to thank those in the Find A Grave community for the huge role that you play - THANKS!

A few things I've learned...
Death certificates are good for date and location of death (other info on death certificate is advisory).
Birth certificate is the best source for date of birth, location, and parents.
Info from headstones is also advisory too. Headstones are sometimes put in place decades later by descendants and errors are made.

Thanks for the edits on Evelyn...if she is family and you would like her memorial, let me know through the edit system and I will transfer them both to you. I believe that no one takes better care of family than family!! Thanks again, Jill

Laura and Frank Pratt
Hi Stephen,

I got your message about Frank (Ralph)Pratt. I am distantly related to him thru his mother Laura Swanson's family. Let me check my files and see if I can find more documentation of him being called Ralph.

Best Wishes,
Jen Magers

You are right! thanks!

Thank You Again
Thank You for all the information you've sent. My brother-in-law had to find my corrections for me on my email and replace them all - sigh - I'll get through them, though - I really appreciate them.

RE: Cecil Simmon's mother
There was a Ira Simmons Sr. Then they had a Ira Jr. She didn't stay married to Ira Simmons Sr. very long. I think he ended up being in Prison and divorced and got with another woman and a truck driver Ira Sr. passed away in 1937
