Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am originally from southern Michigan and have made my home in New Mexico since 1978. Geneaology has taken me (as an armchair traveler) worldwide with interest in family names of Sweet, Tompkins, Bestel, Buckley, Hetrick, Kuhn, Heckart, Caplin (Capelin), Woodbury, and many, many others. "" has revealed information on familiar names and added other branches to my existing tree.
Please contact me if I may assist with things in the Four Corners area of the US, or if you suspect that we may have a common family connection. -N

Our Sweet Ancestors
Hello Nancy,
On Find A Grave I noticed that we are both descendants of John Sweet 1530-1613, Memorial # 127737985 and Mary (Periam) Sweet 1535-1552, Memorial # 127738090 who are our 11th great grandparents. I would love to add your lineage to my tree on All living persons are capped off. I would be the only one able to read their information. Kind deeds change lives. Thank you

RE: Your Photo
Not a problem at all...I too was surprised by the flowers and thought I had to get them in the picture. Sorry the letters aren't very visible, the tombstone was in bad condition, but I could make out his name and years after looking closely...Same with the other one....I'm glad I could help :)

Any Bestel
Any Bestel memorials that I have, you are more than welcome to maintain. I am adding information to the memorials I have and turning them over to Find A Grace. Eventually will not be so active in Find A Grave.

Christina Bestel
Please check out memorial # 109508367 , this is a memorial that I made for Christina Bestel by the reference of her Death Certificates also posted on her memorial.
The memorial in the same cemetery for Mrs Andrew Bestel, I believe is an error and that memorial should be for Andrew Bestel, Christina's Husband,
Why, I think so, he is in the 1870 Census but the 1880 Census shows, Christina is a widow.
I have some research on Chrisina and her Children, If you would like to manage this memorial, it is fine with me.
Any questions please contact me.

RE: Charles W Tompkins
Sorry I am not related and do not have any more information than what was on the death certificate. If I get to that cemetery this summer I will look for him and more of the family and take pictures. RLE
