Bio and Links
Bio Photo My wife and I have had the genealogy "bug" for more than 40 years. Since retirement, about 20 years ago, it has been almost a full time job (or obsession.) Since we have gathered more than 32,500 names in our data base, new finds are getting harder and harder to find.

Our latest endeavor, for about 15 years, has been adding photographs to our data base and to Find A Grave. During this time we have traveled literally tens of thousands of miles, covering states from Maine to Kansas, looking for those elusive pieces of granite, sandstone, marble and even homemade cement markers.

On this note I would be glad to make corrections, additions, relationship links, etc. upon request. I will also be glad to transfer management of a memorial according to the following guidelines by Find A Grave.

"Transfer requests should be for DIRECT RELATIVES WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS, THIS WOULD BE YOUR SIBLINGS, PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, AND GREAT-GRANDPARENTS. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related the the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer (the original contributor should not make any corrections and add any additional information you may have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses).

Also, please provide memorial numbers for those transfers you are requesting and your relationship with them.

UPDATE: As Ken is no longer able to do memorials for FAG, I am going to try my best to continue with this work he enjoyed so much. If you have questions, please contact me.

Thanks for the transfer Ruth, I am trying to update quite a few so this gives me a bit more information to dig for as well.

RE: Louis Barksdale
Hello Ruth,

Louis Barksdale was my gt gt grandfather's older brother.
Since this memorial was transferred to me I haven't gotten around to updating the biography.

The information I have is that in 1879 Louis moved from Washington Co. IN. to Marshall Co., KS., where he married Elizabeth Turley on July 24, 1881. They had two daughters, Catherine Drewzilla born in 1882, and Etta Mae born April 11, 1885. Louis's wife Elizabeth died in April 1885, when Catherine (Katie) was 2-1/2 and Etta was six weeks old. Etta Mae was raised by her mother's sister in Marhall Co., KS. near where she was born. In the Spring of 1890, Louis and his daughter Catherine, and a nephew Sam Beryl moved to Illinois and settled near his brother Samuel Barksdale. Louis married Effie Holstlaw on Sep 10, 1891 in Marion Co.,IL.

I hope this information will help you. I feel guilty that I haven't done more with Louis's Memorial; but your inquiry may get me in gear.

All the Best......Mike

I added the information about Isaac's mother to his memorial. Unfortunately, the cemetery where she's at is still the same as when you visited it. The church it was affiliated with is no longer and I believe its the kindness of neighbors who keep the grass cut.

RE: Joseph Phillis
I'm descended from Joseph Phillis. My sister and I are members of NSDAR, and have submitted supplemental applications to be approved as descendants of Joseph. He's already an NSDAR Ancestor # A090840. We should hear soon if we're approved so..... wish us luck!

Even though the Stoelzing family is not in a direct line for me, I find the information contained in the memorials quite informative and interesting. Thanks for the hard work. Kathyrn

Thank you so much. Sorry, Kenneth is no longer able to use the computer. I will keep him in my prayers. May God bless you both.

Find A Grave now has an excellent EDIT function that allows you to enter info for a memorial so I encourage you to use that resource. Find A Grave will let me know that EDITs are pending and I can then click one button to confirm the edits.

Here is to efficiency!

happy new year!
