I am still married to the same man for 38 years I have 2 wonderful sons,a beautiful daughter-in-law and 3 gorgeous grandchildren.I grew up in Sharon,Wisconsin with 2 sisters and 4 brothers. My husband and I moved to Rockton,Illinois in 1979 and plan to retire on our 20 acre place up in Arkdale,Wisconsin in a few years.I have dabbled in genealogy for over 20 years and have done a lot of grave searching which I still love.
Sitha I am not sure. I have documentation that she was a daughter of a Dawson. She had a niece named for her and she may have married a Wilcoxin. I have so many papers and things. I will have to look for the info. Thanks Marsha
Dawson Thank you. When I found her gravesite I was so awed. The only thing I had ever heard was my GGgrandmother was a Cherokee, no names or anything. Daddy and my grandfather did not talk about anything of ancesters. I would dearly love to have any info you may have on the Dawson family and I will send you mine. Do you know anything about her husband, Albert or Alfred Fisher? Marsha
Sythi I wish I knew where the Cherokee comes from. I have heard that Fisher and Dawson both had Cherokee blood. I am really proud of it. Have you been to her Memorial? The picture is on there. I have talked with others on line that also have a picture. One person told me that Sythi was deceased in the picture. I know that one of Sythi's nieces came to Callaway County too later. I will get all the info out and look at it again.
RE: george w. gatrel Hi Sandy! So nice of you to add the obit for George......Jerry & I are in Alaska so I don't have access to my records! We've been here for 10 days & return home this Thursday.....I promise to get back to you asap on your Voorhees questions:) However, here's Jerry's connection to Charles Voorhees......the daughter of Charles, Leola "Ola" Malinda Voorhees, was the 1st wife of Jerry's maternal grandfather, Joe Gayley Duree. Ola & Joe were married only 2 years when she died of TB in 1909.....just 3 mos after the death of their infant son. Several yrs later, Joe remarried to Jerry's maternal grandmother. Charles was the only child of John Voorhees & Malinda Mary Gatrel. Charles was married to Mary Malinda Brundage and they had at least 4 children, including Ola mentioned above. But as I said, I promise to get back to you soon with ALL the info......because it turns out Jerry is actually related to the Ellis family in another way!
