Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in my family heritage every since I was a young child. I remember asking my grandmothers to "write down the names" Well, they did. I had no idea just how many names there would be :-) I have been compiling and researching all of those names over 15 years now. I am so thankful for this website. I now have a place to put all the pictures and newspaper clippings my grandmothers saved. I hope they can benefit other family members who may be searching their roots.

RE: sarah dozier thornton
Hello Cathy, thanks so much for your reply. In a phone conversation with her grandson (now deceased) he said she was a tall thin woman who gathered her home remedies in the woods as well as basket making materials. She sat on her barn floor and wove baskets amd that she was 1/4
Indian. He spent a lot of time with her as a child. I will keep searching and if I find verification I will pass it on to you. Thank you again, Maryann

Re Gerena Curl
Hi Cathy,

I would think Gerena would be buried with her spouse, Remembrance Hughes Curl jr at the Highland Cemetery, Mystic in Appanoose County.
I've requested a photo of his memorial marker, but it has not been filled on Find A Grave.

Have you checked to see if she is at his site?

I would really like to solve this mystery of my great grand uncle & aunt.

Thanks for adding her to Find A Grave.

Hi Cathy, do you have any information in regard to Sarah being of Indian heritage? Her grandson told me she was 1/4 Indian. Haven't found any verification of this. She was the mother of Sarah Thornton Shettleworth I think and my GGG grandmother. Thank you, Maryann Griggs

Re Jessie Mae CURL Beer Eddy #37712482
Glad to find Jessie's 2nd family, she is my 1st cousin 2x removed. My great grandpa was her uncle John. Wanted you to know I think you have done a really nice job for the families. I know it is a lot of work, but it is worth it.
Follow Remembrance Hughes Curl sr on Find A Grave & you will find our branch in Warren co., IA.
It is so good to get families together on Find A Grave.

Thanks for all your work.

John A. Bull
I saw where you had created the memorial for John Alexander in Leavenworth National. Did you see his marker listed as Jho Bull in the cemetery with only his death date? I requested a transfer of the memorial but haven't recieved a response yet. You can copy the picture of his memorial, but I'd be sure to give credit to the person who took the picture so they don't complain to Find A Grave.
