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!

Roy & Bertie's Hatchet
Thank you so very much for transferring both Roy and Bertie's memorials to me. I appreciate it very much and thank you also for all of your hard work in posting them or otherwise, I would have never found them!

John Lambert
How is it that apparently, there are TWO John Lamberts from Mercer County, KY? You have provided information for both. Please explain who was what? I'm somewhat confused as you have written obits for both, John Lamberts. My Great Grandfather is buried in Kingman, KS. You wrote his obit. So, who is John Lambert in Mercer County, KY, who also, you wrote the obit for?

August Carl Connor
Leon - several years ago, it would seem, you took a really nifty photo at Syracuse Cemetery. I see the photo attached to August Carl Connor. Can you tell me if this is part of his grave marker? Did it have any writing on it? I think it is really nifty and appreciate your time taking and posting the photo

Dear Leon,
I don't remember if I told you that when I showed my mother the picture of her brothers grave she cried. Did not know where the headstone came from but was thrilled that some one cared about their graves.
Thank you again for all of your hard work. It is very special to our family. Pat Wilson

RE: Barton Family
I am related but it is very distant. I have a great many Barton relatives from Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas, as well as other locations.

Thomas Massie photo
Hi Leon,
On Ancestry you have a restored photo of Thomas Massie and family.
Is this the Thomas Massie 1782-1851, son of Jeptha & Mary? If so, can you tell me who the people are in the photo?
