I became interested in genealogy several years ago and recently retired and it has become a bit of a passion. I am building on excellent research done by my father about 20 years ago so I had a running start.
Please check the Orphan Virtual Cemetery for those who are not in my family tree. These folk need to be reunited with their families.
If you are a distant relative and find anything that I have posted, please feel free to copy for your own use. I have collected quite a bit of documentation and I am happy to share with others working on the same relatives. The collection has been a labor of love and if I can save anyone a few steps, I'm thrilled to do it. If you are descended from anyone on my memorials, please let me know. I'd be glad to transfer anyone who is not in my direct line so you can honor your family member. And I may be able to direct you to other well documented family trees I am aware of. Plus, I love meeting distant relatives I never knew about and together we have been able to solve many mysteries. Amazing how the pieces are so spread out and fit so well when they come together.
Eliphas Condray Hi - Your Find A Grave Memorial# 81879156 is wonderfully full of details. Thank you. Do you have a link that shows citations for the sources to the information? I would would love to have the citations if you are willing to share. Eliphas is my 4x great grandfather. My great grandmother, whom I knew when she was in her 90's is Anna Stephanie Condreay (died in Stillwater, OK). One issue that I'd love to figure out (maybe you can help) - Eliphas' birth date is estimated to be 1782 and his son William Matthew's is 1788. Do you have any better information on the dates as of today? One or both of the dates is not correct.
Thanks, Steve Balkman Issaquah, WA email@example.com
Edith Kester The footnote for Edith A. Kester indicated that Warren W. Kester and Donald R. Kester are her half-siblings. That is not true, according to the children of Donald R. Kester. What documentation lead you to that assumption?
LaHue Hi, could you change cemetery for Earl Samuel LaHue and his wife Winnifred Park Lahue. They are actually buried here in Twin Falls at the Sunset Memorial Park not Filer. Just contacted Sunset Memorial Park and they verified the burials and I found obits for them. So would appreciate the correction. Thanks Chris
RE: Martha League McKinney Oh well, I guess I did not realize you had not added the note. They are my family (very distantly). So I am trying to get as much members on my family tree as possible. I just wasn't sure until I did a little research myself how each was related. Thanks! :)
Esther Hanson Jan, I am wondering where you got the information to set up this memorial as I may have a problem with it as I found more info that may tell me that she is not related. Do you have any information on her as to parents or maybe husband? Thanks Jerry
