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.

Marie Anna Ruffner #109988702
I would suggest that this memorial be merged with that of Anna Marie Ruffner, #73994552 created by Dave Van Doren. They appear to be for the same person, although the birth dates are slightly different.

Alexander Greer
Alexander Greer is my ggg-grandfather, you mentioned that his parents were James Augusta Greer, where did you get the name Augusta from in all my research for James I have never connected Augusta to him. I do know that there is another James
Augusta Greer, but he is not our relations, check and see where the source came from for Augusta.

Thank you SO MUCH for posting the marriage license for Thomas E. Copeland and Jakey Arthur. This should put to rest any remaining nonsense. Thank you again.

Jackie Arthur
I am still getting the incorrect information for Jackie Arthur on Ancestry from the find-a-grave site. A hint keeps appearing that says her husband is Jesse Thomas Copeland. Ancestry tells me this can only be corrected from the
Find A Grave site. Please correct this. Thnx.
