Sam Farnham
Hi Don - could you please do me a favor and link Samuel Farnham's first wife to his memorial? Her name was Adaline "Addie" Elizabeth Jones. Sam was her first husband (they married 23 Nov 1882 in Wyanet, Bureau County, Illinois) and they had the following children:
Baby Girl Farnham 1882 1882
Charles O Farnham 1885 ?
James C "Jim" Farnham 1887 1926 (Find A Grave #66965580)
Clyde V Farnham 1889 1960
Twin Baby Boys Farnham 1890 1890

When she and Sam separated she remarried to John Barkley and Sam remarried to Alice Linebaugh (her second husband was Walter Morelock).

Sam & Alice had the following children:
Clarence Melvin Farnham 1894 1933
Samuel "Alton" Farnham 1898 1965
Katherine L. "Katie" Farnham 1900 1957 (my great grandmother)
Loren D. Farnham 1903 1932
Irma Pearl Farnham 1907 1985
Zeoda Farnham 1915 ?

Addie's memorial is 66965617. If for any reason you would prefer not to manage Sam's memorial any longer please feel free to transfer him to me.

Thank you, Steph

Even though yours is the later entry/duplicate, I think I'll delete mine to eliminate site visitor confusion - Besides you have more details noted on yours, with the Montana obituary included. ~ Lynn

Hi ~

You probably had no idea that you created a duplicate entry of Greg's tribute, originally created Sept 6, 2006 at ID# 15647607.

It's okay. Can't find them all. I have made the same mistake more than once. I see you are a family historian. I am too and was growing up in the Silver Valley when the Sunshine Mining Disaster occurred.

Are he and his dad relatives of yours?

Have you read Gregg Olsen's book about the tragedy, titled: The Deep Dark. It is very true to much of what I recall, including people close to my heart who were active in helping the Valley to heal afterward.

Sincerely, Lynn

Grandma McConnell
Hi Donnie,
It's me, your cousin Jacie. I don't have your phone # and I Googled you and found this site. Nice picture!!

I am participating in the National Geographic Genographic Project to discover my matrillineal deep ancestory. I am contributing personal info and some of the questions are: Where did your earliest known matrillineal ancestor come from?
What language did they speak? What ethnic group did they identify with? I knew, if anyone knows, that you would know. So, can you tell me? I don't know Grandma Mcconnell's maiden name or her mother's info or even further back if you have it. I will, of course share the information I get with you as you have both the matrillineal line and the patrillineal line in your ancestry cuz of that unfair advantage of the 'Y' chromosome!!

Thanks for your help.
