Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Olympia, WA area, but my genealogy roots take me to Miami Co., IN where my parents were from. My genealogy also takes me to OH, WI, MN, IL and IA for the most part of my research, which includes my husband's family research. My daughter, Jen, is my right hand companion on the road research. I wouldn't be where I am with my research without her. Recently, my brother and nephew have joined us on a couple of our trips. Thank you, Ray and David.

My main surnames for research are Repp, Collier, Gasaway, Draving, White, Erickson and Christenson. A few other surnames include Vail, Paul, Hester, Crumrine.

My husband bought me a wooden plaque one year that has become my favorite genealogy saying:

"Genealogy - Life in the past lane"

That just about says it all!!!

Descendant of Gilbert Vail
Hello Jo,

I am a descendant of Gilbert Vail and Rebecka Williams through their daughter Mary. She had a daughter through questionable circumstances, named Almira (Myra). Myra married William Henry Sires November 4, 1881. They had a number of children, including my great-grandmother Lillian Christabelle Siers Ahlers. Have little information on Gilbert except for a birthdate of May 1, 1809.

Hi from Two rivers
Hi Jo,

I went to check on my in-laws, as a test case for find a grave and see that you already entered - how do you do it from the distance?

Oh, yes, they are Melvin and Georgianna Gallagher of Two Rivers.

Arthur Kenneth Collier
Inquiring about Arthur Collier and the possibility he was married to a Lessie Pearl Toney? My mother's aunt was married to an Arthur Collier and they had two sons; Kenneth and Phillip Collier. Her grandmother lived in Anderson, Indiana so Aunt Lessie could easily have met him in Anderson.
I don't know if she remarried after his death or if they divorced, but I believe she m. a Mr. Davis at some point.

There is a Kenneth and a Phillip Collier buried in Indiana, but have no idea if these two are the sons of Aunt Lessie.

Thanks much for your consideration.
