Bio and Links
I got hook on genealogy after talking to my Grandfather (George E. Deskins) about the "Good Old Days" and how he had a story about everyone and everything. I started by researching only wanting to do my immediate family but it has escalated to years of research, meeting wonderful people, hearing amazing stories and with much help from other dedicated researchers. After joining FAG it keeps getting better and better.
I hope that all of realize that we all are related and should treat everyone the way we want to be treated.
My main research is on all the Deskin, Deskins and Deskines lines, but I also do Jackson and Matney

Bessie Whitt

Yes, She was a Hess, married a Hess.

Their suggestion:
I want to make sure I am reading the post correctly, Bessie maiden name was Hess and her first husband was a Hess, is this correct?

RE: Question
I had to type each obit. out to get obit. in the bio. section and it was less time consuming just to add the original obit. Besides, perhaps someone may want to copy the original obit. for their personal genealogy.

RE: Questionable
You are definitely the expert:) I should have asked your opinion before getting all excited. How do you take down a posting? I sent a message to Harold but can't figure how to remove it.

More Kansas Deskins

I see on the site that Mom, Helen Deskins Brune, has two listings; one under #113213434 maintained by you with Mom's obit and #124285160 maintained by me with pics of Mom's new stone. Is there anyway to merge the two?

Kansas Deskins
Hi Sue,

I have been down to the Clinton Cemetary, Douglas Co, KS recently. I haven't yet had a chance to dig out my geneology stuff, but I did re-look at the stones, took pics, and made notes.

I see that Mariann Deskins (#48435516), 2nd wife of CF Deskins,is spelled Mary Ann instead of Mariann. I think the Mariann is correct - that is how it spelled on the stone.

I am in the process of checking my notes with info on this site. And, add pics if there are any blanks.

Thanks. Deb - your distant cousin. :)
