Bio and Links
Bio Photo Inspired by the work done by her great grandfather, Silas Wm. Blizzard (fag #40386458), while writing a history of his family, my mother, Eleanor Clara Blizzard Black (fag#33676318) began her own research. She continued until the early 1980's when arthritis and osteoporosis made the work too difficult for her. I had always found the subject interesting but did nothing with it until after inheriting mother's numerous notes. I began my own search to learn more about my ancestors and those of my wife about ten years ago but did so on a limited basis until more recently. Find A Grave has proved to be a wonderful tool! I've "met" so many people here who have been so helpful to me. As I've visited cemeteries and researched names, I've found many of our relatives. I've also created memorials for many other people I've found along the way in the hope that what I've done may be helpful to others who are searching for their ancestors. If I've entered information incorrectly, I apologize; please let me know and I'll make corrections. If you find ancestors of yours among the memorials I've created and would like for me to transfer them to you, let me know. If neither my wife nor I is related, I'll be happy to make the transfer.

RE: Catherine Wilcox - 52194238
Thank you for sharing the info and the source; I'll check it out! I have seen reference to the parents you mentioned, but have yet to find documentation.

Catherine Wilcox - 52194238
Hi, I was wondering if you could let me know where you found reference to Catherine's surname as Wilcoxson. Our family notes all have simply "Wilcox" so I was hoping perhaps you have specific information regarding her parentage. We have the birth date and location, but have been unable to specifically document her parents. Thanks for any info you can share!

Lena Henderson
Hello Tom,

Thank you for taking your time to post these graves...you've done a very fine job!

If she's not your family, would you please transfer Lena Henderson to me...she's the wife of my gr-gr-uncle, Peter Henderson. I'd like to update it with her maiden name & other information to link her with the family.

Thank you.

Hi Tom,
I have added close-up shots for the stones of John #61411403 and Anna #61411556 Batdorf. I noticed that you had left flowers and might like to know about better photos. I am not connected to the family (Yet) I just like doing this stuff.
