Bio and Links
Thanks to my Grandmother, I have been interested in genealogy since I was 10 years old. I have actively been doing my own research for the last 20 years.

I now possess all of the 40 plus years genealogical research of my late paternal grandparents. The wealth of information I possess is immense will take a lot of time for me to look through and organize. I will be happy to look through any information I have, however, you will have to be patient. Not only do I have piles of paper to go through in multiple boxes, bags and dresser drawers, I do not live on the same location where my genealogy office is. As much as I would love to give people information speedily, it just is not possible at the moment.

TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS: I follow the rules as stated in the FAQ's, under the heading: Editing & Correcting Memorial Information:

As per ANY PROPER RESEARCH, if you use my photos or any one else's photos PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE GIVE THE PHOTOGRAPHER OR POSTER CREDIT! If a photographers or poster's name is associated with the photo a connection can be made. I have made many family connections and found more information about my families from this method.

We are all here to help each other out. Please don't jip anyone out of a possible gold mine of other information that a very distant relative may have. They may be the owner of the only original information!

Clarence Wright & Siblings
Hi Beth: I sent you an email awhile back indicating there were some corrections that needed to be made on my family Find A Grave's Memorials and noticed they have not been changed as yet. On my Grandfather: # 18224269 for Clarence E Wright, Mildred Edith Wright is not a sibling. She is the daughter to Arthur Emsley Wright. I noticed that this mistake is indicated on all of Clarence's sibling's. Correct siblings are: Effie Olive, Clarence, Loyd Milton, Clyde Lester, Edna Alice, Leona Ruby and Chas Lusk). Other's mentioned belong to Arthur Emsley. Hoping that it can be corrected as this is misleading. Also, Charles Lusk Wright is not in Lucerne Cemetery. He is in Resthaven Cemetery in Trenton, MO although he may have died in Lucerne. Your attention to this is very much appreciated. Thank you! JoAnn Wright Wintenburg

Hess/Ranz branch
Hello Beth! I am a cousin on the Hess/Ranz Branch. Rose Marie Hess/Walter Leslie Ranz 1st cousin line
Robert Frank Ranz/Adeline Thackeray 2nd cousin line
Leonard and Jill direct 3rd Cousin line.
I am hopeful to find some cousin from the Hess line. There are not very many of us that have connected yet. Caroline Manz and George Hess are my Great Great Grandparents. I thought I would contact you since you are connected to the Thackeray branch. I even have things in my mothers scrapbook from Rose Marie Hess Ranz. Any help in contacting anyone from the Hess branch would be great!! My email is
Thanks so much,
Suezy O'Brien House

Sorry, I meant second wife Abigail; so we are from the same line it seems!

RE: Cushing Bowker
Hi Beth, thank you for responding!

I am a descendant of Cushing and his last wife Abigail Ryder. However, I was wondering if you had any information on his first wife, Sarah Marston. I suspect she may be related to Samuel Marston, another ancestor who married the daughter of Cushing and Abigail.

Rosa Lee Lusk Cain
Thanks for the photos, Beth! I just left a message regarding Rosa Lee Lusk Cain buried at the Freedom Cemetery. She was the dau. of Adoniram J. Lusk and Sophronia A. Brown. Of this,I am positive. My great grandmother, Virginia Mae, was a sister to Rosa.

Acacia Park Cemetery Photo Request
Hello - I work near the Acacia Park Cemetery, where you have a photo request, and I can easily stop by anytime. However the cemetery office has a policy to only allow me two location lookups per visit, so with over 100 requests, I am making graves with plot information my priority. If you would like me to add a photo, I would ask that you call the office (773-625-7800) for a location and add it to the listing. Thanks!
