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!

in memory of grandma
I just love the new edit feature now that they have added it for family links. That is a big chunk of what I find myself doing...

Charles Wayne "Chuck" Reist
Thanks for hooking him up with his dad. (Sorry, I haven't found info about his mother's location.)

It amazes me that when I'm working on another part of the state, I don't think our paths will cross. then I find connections again in western Kansas where you have memorials.

Case in point, this man is related to Julius F. Smith also in that same cemetery. Julius's maternal grandmother, Nettie Jane (Jenkins) Cross was a sister to Ella Mable (Jenkins) Reist who was Chuck's paternal grandmother. Hopefully, they knew of each other...

Again, thanks!

Mable Petet
Many thanks for deleting Mable's duplicate memorial. Her grave marker must have been purchased by her side of the family. Her husband is not buried there and Mable isn't even buried in the same cemetery as her husband. Thanks again.

RE: Francis Keith Roland
Looks perfect! Thanks so much.

His very young widow later married his cousin Joe Roland and had two children. Joe and Francis were pilots together in the war, along with Joe's older brother Elvin.

I'm so glad you made this memorial.

Best wishes, Suzanne

RE: Luke & Mary West
Thanks so much for transferring the Luke and Mary Light West memorials to me. They are my great grandparents. I did not know them, but have researched them thoroughly. My mother knew and treasured her grandparents, and I did know my mother's aunts and uncles who were their children. I will tend the memorial with care.
