Bio and Links
I've been working on my family lines since I was a little girl and pestering my grandma with all kinds of questions. I am the mother of 6 children and 19 grandchildren. My mother-in-law gave me her records a few years ago and now I am also researching my husband's lines as well. Because of the volunteer work I do I spend what time I have left doing research. I relish the trips doing "field" work and often find myself in unusual places and far from home. Living in Texas is not close to where my ancestors lived (Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, etc.) but I do enjoy the traveling and finding new cousins.

John W Beckel
Are your dates correct for John. I think this is John W Jack Beckel who's dates would be b. 6-1929
d. 6-1969. Cheryl

Teresa - Thanks for making the changes to Eldor Peterson's memorial. I should have looked at that time, but I see that you also own Eldor's wife's memorial - Memorial# 99068606. I was wondering if you could edit it as well. Her full name was Alvina Ida (Lang) Peterson, born September 29, 1917 in Rockwell City, Iowa, and died July 7, 2008 in Pocahontas, Iowa. Thanks so much for your help!

Eldor Peterson
Teresa - Thank you for your contributions to Findagrave! It is great to be able to search for these gravesites from the comfort of your own home. You are the owner of Memorial# 99068610, Eldora Peterson. This is my wife's grandfather, and I was hoping that you could edit his entry. His name is actually Eldor Julius Peterson. He was born Dec 12, 1911, and died Feb 4, 1983. Thank you very much!

William H. "Billy" Thomas 15450740
Hi Teresa,

My husband is William H. Thomas' great grandson. I see that you are related on the other side of the family so I won't insult you by asking that you transfer them to my care. However, I am hoping that you will attach William's parents so that it presents a more complete family picture. They are as follows:

Charles Thomas #296282111
Jane Gage Thomas #29629178

Thank you!
