Tamara Sanabria
I'm Grace Randall's Daughter
Hi Charlene, just wanted to drop a line to you and let you know that I seen your family linage. As I said i am Grace Randall's daughter, Dorothy Chapman Reed's Granddaughter. My Name is Tamara Sharon (Randall) Sanabria. My older sister's name is Kathy Sylvia (Randall) Large-King. I have some questions about my family that I never knew about. For instance I never knew about Jennifer Charlene Birdsley who would have been my half Aunt. Being you were named after her you know about the circumstances of her. Plus other relatives I never knew i had. By the way are you the Charlene that "went grave hopping" with my mom one time? Please write me back as I have so many questions. Thank you.

Marie Ireland
I have added the obit for Marie on her memorial. However, the Find A Grave site does not want living persons mentioned, so I deleted the references to surviving members of the family.

Mary Kearns McKibben Obit
On this persons Obituary, Mary C. Kearns-McKibben, on FindAGrave, it states she had a son, Ralph McKibben, of Bainbridge, Ohio. We cannot locate any other records on him, besides he married Opal Nichols in 1940. And he had 2 sons: James Larry McKibben, and Roy E. McKibben, in Highland County, Ohio. These are my Half-Brothers with Opal Nichols as our Mother. Ralph enlisted in the army and was injured during war twice, then was let go with an honorable discharge. Do you have any further information on Ralph? Date of Death or where he is buried?

George Vinsonhaler
I am a decendant of George Vinsonhaler 1770-1839. I noticed that your wonderful very informational page says that you copied information from the Vinsonhaler Family Bible. I was wondering if you have copies of those pages. I was not even aware that there was a family bible. I'd love it if you could send me copies of those!

My email is

Thanks so much for putting so much information on this site!
