Hi, My name is Lois and I have always found researching history to be exciting. My mother is the one who found Find A Grave and got me hooked... (lol) After my grandma passed away in 2005; I decided to leave flowers in her memory. Please if you have a minute drop by my grandparents pages and leave a flower.|
Thanks to each and everyone of you who take the time to stop by and leave flowers or a note they are greatly appreciated.

|Genealogy Girl||Genealogist's Christmas Eve|
'Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even my spouse.
The dining room table with clutter was spread
With pedigree charts and with letters which said...
"Too bad about the data for which you wrote;
Sank in a storm on an ill-fated boat."
Stacks of old copies of wills and such
Were proof that my work had become too much.
Our children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.
And I at my table was ready to drop
From work on my album with photos to crop.
Christmas was here, and such was my lot
That presents and goodies and toys I'd forgot.
Had I not been busy with grandparents' wills,
I'd not have forgotten to shop for such thrills,
While others bought gifts to bring Christmas cheers,
I'd spent time researching those birth dates and years.
While I was thus musing about my sad plight,
A strange noise on the lawn gave me such a great fright.
Away to the window I flew in a flash,
Tore open the drapes and yanked up the sash.
When what with my wondering eyes should appear,
But an overstuffed sleigh and eight small reindeer.
Up to the house top the reindeer they flew,
With a sleigh full of toys and 'ole Santa Claus, too.
And then in a twinkle, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of thirty-two hoofs.
As I drew in my head, and bumped it on the sash,
Down the cold chimney fell Santa--KER-RASH!
"Dear" Santa had come from the roof in a wreck,
And tracked soot on the carpet, (I could wring his short neck!)
Spotting my face, good 'ole Santa could see
I had no Christmas spirit you'd have to agree.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled all the stockings, (I felt like a jerk).
Here was Santa, who'd brought us such gladness and joy:
When I'd been too busy for even one toy.
He spied my research on the table all spread
"A genealogist!" He cried! (My face was all red!)
"Tonight I've met many like you," Santa grinned,
As he pulled from his sack a large book he had penned.
I gazed with amusement--the cover it read
Genealogy Lines for Which You Have Plead.
"I know what it's like as a genealogy bug."
He said as he gave me a great Santa hug.
"While the elves make the sleighful of toys I now carry,
I do some research in the North Pole Library!
A special treat I am thus able to bring,
To genealogy folk who can't find a thing."
"Now off you go to your bed for a rest,
I'll clean up the house from this genealogy mess."
As I climbed up the stairs full of gladness and glee,
I looked back at Santa who'd brought much to me.
While settling in bed, I heard Santa's clear whistle,
To his team, which then rose like the down of a thistle.
And I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight,
"Family history is Fun! Merry Christmas! Goodnight!"
|Ainsley Jo Phillips||Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!|
Russell has just received some wonderful news that Invisible Youth Network is among those organizations being recognized by Peet's Coffee & Tea with a donation that will be sent to IYN in January!!!
Some of Russell's plans for 2010 include intentions to open up a residential youth center for San Diego street kids along with a camp (a respectable one and not one of those horrible boot-camps) out in the country.
He also intends to have four major fundraising events every three months out in San Diego in the coming year!
That's quite a shirttail cousin you have there!
From what I've seen so far, you Hartsaws are some pretty amazing people!!!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to you.

|Bill McKern||Enclosed -- bio for Charles D. Herron|
I sent this to your e-mail address, but it was returned.
Charles Douglas Herron, 1877-1977
I prepared a bio of General Herron. I'm sending it to you in case you want to add it to the Find A Grave page you created.
I added a photo of General Herron to that page today -- I found it on the web site for the US Army's Pacific Command
If you wanted to, you could probably have General Herron's page included in the famous listings.
Birth: Crawfordsville, Indiana, March 13, 1877
Death: Honolulu, Hawaii, 23 April 1977
US Army General. He graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1899 and served in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War. He then carried out a series of increasingly demanding assignments, including Adjutant of the 10th Infantry Regiment in Panama, and commander the 10th Infantry's Machine Gun Company. In 1908 he received a master's degree from Indiana's Wabash College. During World War I he served as Deputy Chief of Staff of the 1st Infantry Division and Chief of Staff of the 78th Division, receiving the Distinguished Service Medal. After the war he served on the General Staff and was assigned as Chief of Staff of the Philippine Department. From 1934 to 1935 he was head of Reserve Affairs, receiving promotion to Brigadier General. From 1935 to 1937 he was commander of the 6th Field Artillery Regiment. In 1937 he earned a law degree from Wabash College and was promoted to Major General as acting VI Corps commander. As head of the Army's Hawaiian Command in the late 1930s and early 1940s, Herron was promoted to Lieutenant General and bucked Army conventional wisdom by advocating the integration of Japanese-Americans into the military. He retired in early 1941, but was recalled for World War II, serving on the Personnel Board that considered officers for promotion. He retired again in December, 1946, receiving another Distinguished Service Medal. In 1947 he was promoted to General on the retired list. From 1946 to 1966 Herron resided in Bethesda, Maryland, where he was active in civic affairs and served on the Montgomery County Court of Tax Appeals. In 1966 his wife and he moved to Hawaii to live near their daughter, and Herron died at the nursing home where he had resided for several years.
