Have been doing genealogy research for our family for about 18 years; started going to cemeteries about 13 years ago. Hoping to retire in a couple of years so I can do this more often. Living life and loving God and family. ------------------------------------- "Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can.

In 1874 he came to Missouri, and worked at farming near Verona until 1878, when he started for Prescott, Ariz., and went from there to Albuquerque, N.

Carl Mottice #3917500 Maggie, I am Lynette Baker Carl's wife's Arianna Hall, great niece. Arianna and Carl had 3 children...Charles b. 1920, Janiece Evelyn b. 1922. I have their info but Janiece is not on findagrave as yet. There was another child I know was a girl [I think her name was Linda]. Arianna's sister, Abbie,[my grandmother] took care of her for about 4 years after Arianna's death. Arianna died during her birth, so this child was born in 1931. I know nothing more about her.
I thought you might like to add some of this information to Carls site.
