President, Riley County Genealogical Socety, Manhattan, Kansas http://rileycgs.com/|
Photo on left was taken in 1986. Things have changed since then...a bit older and hopefully wiser but family constituents remain the same.
I welcome contacts, inquiries about family names and am responsive to edits usually within a day if not hours.
Born and grew up in Santa Rosa, CA, and have been interested in family history since sitting at my grandfather Michie's knee as a little guy going through all his family photos from Scotland.
Really caught the bug about 30 years ago when I took over the family history project from my mother who had done amazing things all by snail mail and accumulated an outstanding collection of photos, documents, family letters, clippings, etc.
My wife is from India and have been working on her family history as well - a much harder slog as there are so few official records and about "zip" on line.
Residing Manhattan, Kansas, and retired from Kansas State University (anthropologist).
General interests: 1) tracing and documenting ancestors, their siblings and descendents, 2) Shatto surname study (maternal grandmother's line) linking up as many I can find with their descendants.
Other names: Michie & Gray (in Scotland), Dampier, Boyer, Boyd, Gardner, Kitch, Umberger, Godbold, Hodges, Kingsbury (brother-in-law's family) and many more.
Findagrave interest: Finding/creating memorials and linking them together so collectively they create a family narrative as best can be done. Major concern is going beyond simple birth/death dates and places to add bios and photos that provide a glimpse into who people were in the context of family history and their times. Still an anthropologist at heart!!
A favorite John Donne poem appropriate for Findagrave
No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.

|Beth Quigley O'Brien||RE: Miller memorials in Pine Grove|
I've become more careful on auto-approving edits. Found out after the fact a few times now that it wasn't correct. We all make mistakes. I make my share, but trying to keep these as accurate as I can. As always, I welcome corrections when I'm wrong.
Just came back from the Cumberland Co Historical Society, trying, again, to dig up info on my oldest Quigley's, John P & Lucetta Spong Quigley, but still hitting a wall. He was born in 1810 & her in 1818 & they got married in 1835, so census records no help for their parents. Limited records so far, but I keep looking. Something will turn up one of these days. Meanwhile, I keep trying to help others thru the Find A Grave memorials.
|Linda Warman Sims||Thanks again !|
Contributors such as yourself make fndagrave a pleasure.
|Linda Warman Sims||John Henry Lear|
Thanks for the heads up, I actually noticed it after adding the edits sent and deleted my duplicate. Can I transfer Mrs Lear/Leair over to you as well? I am not at all related .Thanks Linda
|Suzanne Stamper||RE: John Lear Memorial in Martin Cem., Darke County, Ohio|
Glad you have updated his memorial.
|Jim C.||RE: Hass Memorials in SR Memorial Park|
You are very welcome. It was easy to find and photograph the Hass memorials. I have sent Jeanie Leete a note which gives her the burial location for Gertrude Hass. It is Rose Corridore Niche E-2A. Thanks.

Do you have a plot number I can update for you?
|Gale Cottrell||RE: Martha Platt Cottrell|
You are most welcome. Yes we are related through the Cottrell line. We previously lived in Washington State, but we now live back in Connecticut. You can bet if we get out your way we will definitely stop in.
|Virginia||RE: Harvey Telford Memorial Photo|
Just finished adding the picture to parents' memorials as you asked. (Don't know why I didn't do this when I first added Harvey's--senior moment, I guess)
Sorry it took so long to take care of this.

I have updated Lucy's page in Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka, and I'm in the process of updating and linking other family members. Thank you so much for your help with her bio.
