Bio and Links
Bio Photo My researching of family began, after the birth of my grandson Max in 1997, when my daughter-in-law gave me a version of Family Tree Maker. As a child I always loved mysteries. I read my mother's Ellery Queen novels, watched Perry Mason episodes and my favorite board game was Clue. I always thought how much fun it would be to work as a detective. I guess, in my own way, I do.

I firmly believe that our ancestors deserve more than just dates on their memorials. It is because of that philosophy that I try to add as much of the information that is available to me. Thank you for either your help or your understanding when I fall short.

The surnames I am searching and recording from my paternal side are:
Gibson, Keller, Miller, Ploehs, Reed and Walkinshaw
& from my maternal side, they are:
Beamer, Cunningham, Nelson, Peterson, Park, Parke, Parks, Perrell, Snow and Wiseman

For those who wonder...
Why the number of memorials managed is higher than the number of memorials created?
This is due to some generous F*A*G contributors who decided to transfer some of their memorials to myself and others.
Thank you...
I feel honored to be one of the recipients entrusted to care for these postings.

I'm sorry, but you neglected to mention your relationship in your transfer request. I've been the recipient of your transfer request shtick before and I don't recall any time where you have been refused and have still contributed, so I'm not sure you are interested in (how do you put it) 'reuniting' the family.

RE: Transfer request,
Marcia, Marcia, Marcia... my understanding is that you are proposing a trade for transfer of three memorials which I am "entitled" to by Find A Grave guidelines in exchange for my 3rd great grandfather. I will strongly consider that, but I will definitely do it if you also include my three uncles, Robert Clyde #35228791, Jesse Thomas Jr. #87977888, and Gurney Webster #82727859. Upon receipt of these six I will absolutely honor your request.

RE: Correction
Marcia, I'm not offended either at corrections, sometimes these stones are SO hard to read, and sometimes someone else has a better photo, or better eyes! Thanks for updating.
