Bio and Links
I got hook on genealogy after talking to my Grandfather (George E. Deskins) about the "Good Old Days" and how he had a story about everyone and everything. I started by researching only wanting to do my immediate family but it has escalated to years of research, meeting wonderful people, hearing amazing stories and with much help from other dedicated researchers. After joining FAG it keeps getting better and better.
I hope that all of realize that we all are related and should treat everyone the way we want to be treated.
My main research is on all the Deskin, Deskins and Deskines lines, but I also do Jackson and Matney
This wonderful tool of FAG is out of this world, I want to thank all the fabulous people that have help me in so many ways. I would not of had the opportunity to meet many of my relatives, as well as others if not for FAG. There is no way I can ever thank many of you. Researcher before me, people willing to share info as well as photos and their lives.
I would also like to make a point, this is not a genealogical site, but it gives us a wonderful opportunity to connect our relatives, showing really how small our world is, so I hope that some that feel they don't want to transfer for whatever reason and this is your right, perhaps think that MOST of us, do not do it for numbers but because we appreciate the honor of caring for our relatives like I do. When I hear about my relatives even thou I have never met them, it's like knowing them. Hope this makes sense.

RE: Thanks
You are welcome, I hope you can link Maxwell Deskins, and Lelan Deskins to your Deskins families. I took the photos because they are military graves. I am proud of all the brave men & women who have served our country & wanted to honor them. Take good care of them. LR Jolley

RE: Questionable
You are definitely the expert:) I should have asked your opinion before getting all excited. How do you take down a posting? I sent a message to Harold but can't figure how to remove it.

More Kansas Deskins

I see on the site that Mom, Helen Deskins Brune, has two listings; one under #113213434 maintained by you with Mom's obit and #124285160 maintained by me with pics of Mom's new stone. Is there anyway to merge the two?

Kansas Deskins
Hi Sue,

I have been down to the Clinton Cemetary, Douglas Co, KS recently. I haven't yet had a chance to dig out my geneology stuff, but I did re-look at the stones, took pics, and made notes.

I see that Mariann Deskins (#48435516), 2nd wife of CF Deskins,is spelled Mary Ann instead of Mariann. I think the Mariann is correct - that is how it spelled on the stone.

I am in the process of checking my notes with info on this site. And, add pics if there are any blanks.

Thanks. Deb - your distant cousin. :)

Jacky Basl
Hi Sue:

I think this has been cleared up by the gal that put the other two obits on.

Thank you very much for looking into it.
Sorry you are not related to Larry & Judy, they were a beautiful couple.

My name is Jacky Basl, and I'm related to the wife of Larry R. Deskins, Judy. I see where you are checking out all of the Deskins names.In checking out Larry's Find A Grave, I see where there are three of his obits listed. #71329273 &71375599. The first two do not have the cemetery listed and yours does. Researching the name Deskins, I'm sure you knew where Larry is interred. What I'm trying to say is maybe these can be combined into one. I would appreciate any help you can help me with the obits.
Thank you,
Jacky Basl - #46780516

Were you related to Larry and Judy?
