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!

Margaret T. Arnet Crowder
Hello Leon

Thank you for the transfer of Margaret, I really appreciate it. Margaret and I our 1st cousin once removed. While I had contacted you and Vaughan Mavir about the duplicate memorials on Margaret, the both of you were so kind to transfer her memorials to me. Not sure if you know or not but Find A Grave will not let me delete either of the memorials as I did not create them. I was wondering if I transferred the memorial that you created back to you, if you would delete it since yours was created after Vaughan's? Please advice me.

Thank you so much for your kindness and time.

John Prine FAG # 42364433

John Prine is my great grand uncle. You did such a thorough job on his memorial that although you did not list Prine as a family name for you or your wife, I wondered if there is a connection? I have a lot of information on the Prine family and believe I have identified his mother. I would like to contact one of his family members to discuss my findings and maybe get some feedback. If you know of any family member that might be interested, my name is Sally Berta Pearson. I am on Ancestry, Facebook, and am a contributor to Find A Grave if they want to check on me. My email is

Thank you so much!

Mary Jane Buck Barton
Hello, I am related to Mary Jane Buck's brother Samuel Wilson Buck, and his son Owen Buck Sr. #32578078, and Owen Buck Jr. #32578161. Owen Buck Jr. and my mother were cousins and my mom had pictures of both Owen Buck Sr. and Owen Buck Jr. My mom is a Harbison, and that is the family I am interested in. I don't know where Mary Jane Buck Barton is buried. Good luck on your research. I wish you the best. Cindy Gengler

My grandmother said her parents told her that her Whites came over on the Mayflower, but she never could find the connection between her Whites and the White family that did. I'm just curious, from where did your Great-grandparents emigrate from in England and where did they settle here in the states?

White Family
By the way, I happened to notice you are researching the White family. My grandmother researched her White family for 28 years, finally publishing a red volume called "White Family & Their Kin." by Mrs. Gladys Esther White O'Neal & Elma Leota White Stoops. Paper Graphics, Garden City, KS; 1983. I'm currently researching the life of my 3rd great grandfather, Elder Martin White. #50298335
