Bio and Links
Bio Photo My parents are Ruth Champion and Ralph Lombardi.

I live in Fort Collins. I have photographed family graves in Colorado, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and England.

My ancestors who appear on census records are Beach, Carpenter, Champion, Comfort, Fowler, Garlick, Jolly, Lombardi, Many, Martin, McKune, Mellor, Tremelling, Troon, and Whitney.

Names acquired through adoption or remarriage are Floyd, McCoy, Scholz, and Trevaskis.

Additional family names are Anderson, Haney, Finnern, Jackson, Mangel, Rankin, Schaefer, and Scholz.

I am interested in hearing from cousins who have taken genealogical DNA tests.

I would be happy to transfer memorials to closer relatives.

RE: Honor
Hi Andrew, Would you like to have Laura Jane Champion Champion transferred to you. I made the web page for her as a Boulder History Museum research project, but as you know she is not a ancestor of mine.
Let me know,
Janet Folden

Photo of Wilson Naylor
Hi Andrew - I came across your contact info from a link off of Fannie's the memorial page. I found a photo of her spouse Wilson Samuel Naylor from a copy of the 1933 yearbook from Lawrence University (Appleton, WI). Wilson is included in the faculty / staff section and is as a Professor. I scanned the page w/ his photo and sent it to your email address. I hope it is of some value to you!

Roger Vivian Grave Query

Just to query the entry for Roger Vivian you entered who died in 1656 in Camborne and husband of Ellen Bennett. Is the text noting his parents, siblings and children actually noted on the grave itself or just somebody's thoughts?

I have seen this with others, family are noted without links and even Will & Testaments are listed with that person. It becomes quite confusing what information is actually transcribed from the gravestone and what is just user thought and assumptions.

Some of the connections to family and wills may turn out to be wrong and wonder if it is best to display only raw information of what is on the stone.

Thank you for your help.

RE: Joseph McKune
Hi Andrew,
I sincerely appreciate your feedback and help. I set up a skeleton memorial # 136799781 to properly link Joseph Jr., which will help confusion for future McKune family history seekers. If we later determine Joseph Jr. was not interred in McKune, it can be easily changed. His father and son are there with a headstone, my best guess he IS there without a marking.

Iíve spent the past 6 months intently focused at finding records for those interred in McKune cemetery who have no grave marking. Iím happy to say there are now 225+ new records for those with unmarked graves who were definitely buried in McKune.

Joseph, Jr may have had a grave marker at one time. If he did, it's not visible today, like what has happened to many other markers of his time. Thereís many broken and deteriorating stones in the general area for the visible McKune stones. Joseph, ďKilled by the carsĒ is considerably newer stone and could be a replacement of his original stone.

I submitted an edit request for Joseph, the grandson to change his parent links. When itís accepted, things should align accurately.

On Joseph McKune Srís memorial is a child link for Eunice McKune Smith # 81235045. From the text entered in her memorial it doesnít sound like a proper match. Would you take a few moments and check her record?

Thank you again for your help.

RE: Joseph McKune
Hi Andrew,
Your feedback is most welcomed. I double checked the alignments and the text is appropriate as it relates to both Joseph Jr & Sr. If this observation is inaccurate, please guide me of what I'm misinterpreting.

On a different topic, with all the searches you've done for the McKune families in Susquehanna County, have you ever come across any history about their headstones? We've been trying to determine who was the stone mason and the stone carver of the oldest stones in the McKune cemetery. If you do come across anything about their headstones, please let me know.

Thank you,

Honor "Anna" Champion
I have added her to Laura Jane Champions page. Out of curiosity, can you tell me about the addition of "Honor" to her mom's name. Was Anna Champion a judge?

RE: McCannon
Thank you so much for clarifying who was related. The news articles indicate that James Sr. and Martha were interred in McKune, however there is no grave marker for either. I created memorials for both and noted same. I'm in the process of linking their children. Also when I re-reviewed census records I found that George and Charles, their youngest, were twins. They had 9 known children.... Nancy

Hi Andrew,
Nice to meet you, I would love to take over the memorial for Dr. Wm Loy and his wive Susanna (her memorial number is in subject line). They are my 3rd great grandparents and their grave is about 7 miles from my house.
