Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was bitten by the genealogy bug in the early 1990's. The majority of my research has been on these families (from Kentucky, Ohio, Idaho, Germany & Hungary): Hensley/ Hencley, Blevins, Murphy, Shampton/ Shomkutyan, Gans, Soward, and Wallingford.

If I manage a memorial for a loved one of yours and you want to maintain the memorial, please let me know and I will transfer the memorial to you.

Ms Renee
hello (Soward)
you left a message for me ages ago and looking through my things at 4am in the morning I have noticed it doesn't seem I answered - I am sure every Soward is related ! Smile ! I do know that I have seen records that the first Soward in America was a Thomas Seaward (Seward) who came from Devonshire area in England. He was on a boat with his cousin, William Bishop and arrived in America in 1667 in Maryland. He left land (Tobacco farm) to his Soward boys. I am investigating documents and such out there about his life in England. My family, specifically is in Arkansas. I am in Arizona and haven't seen any of them since I was 12 so many, many years and most all are passed. It's a long story, as all stories are, but somehow, I am sure we are related. I found a great man who has been studying Soward's for nearly 50 years and they have reunions in Texas and are from Oklahoma and Texas. He and I are 'cousins' somehow going back 4-5 generations. Many of our relatives were in the Civil war and taken POW. (Records show for that) and also there are stories of how we are all very interested in writing and going through cemeteries and preserving - the Soward clan has chipped in and bought many gravestones I have heard and I know I always like investigating such things. I hope you are doing well and this finds you good and hopefully I will be back on this site sooner than I had been! Love and Hugs!

Dear Rena,

Good news. I located the Emmanuel Lutheran Cemetery with a Bremen, OH address and photographed your Great Uncle's memorial. I will be sending it to you asap. I may also email you some additional photos of the church.

Re: Edmond Fleck Osburn
You are likely correct. However, I do not know where that bio note came from. I will check Ancestry trees for sure. - dennis

His name is Osburn, and the stone is misspelled.
