Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogist and schoolmarm here, living and teaching in the wilds of Las Vegas for the past decade, but recently my husband and I relocated to his native Western Australia. (There are just as many kangaroos and koalas to snuggle as I hoped!)

Most of the Find-a-Grave memorials I've added have been for family members of some sort. If I'm managing the memorial for one of your ancestors who isn't one of my ancestors, I will gladly transfer ownership - just ask.

Sometimes I don't add information because I feel that it needs further verification, but I do try to put all estimates and theories and whatnots in the bio portion of the memorial. Please feel free to nudge me if I haven't written that bio yet!

When not doing genealogy, I enjoy travel in general and cruising specifically; photography; reading funny novels, the Smithsonian magazine, and the New Yorker; writing restaurant reviews and rambling blog posts; trying to cook Indian food; cake decorating; old-style scrapbooking; fumbling with astronomy; exploring the fun side of the everyday world around me; and wishing that our new place here in Oz allowed pets.

We spoke before about Emily Christina Scott Ellis. I have gotten permission to go back to where her grave is, I have never been there. The best Mother's Day gift I have ever gotten. If your would like to share I would love to get anything you have a copy of about her and the family. I am currently working on this section of the family trying to fill in some blanks. Johnette or Johnetta, his wives, and children.

Shari -

I tried to leave a message on your website, but I could not get it to Post.

Just curious - Last September 2013 I wrote to you from Nathaniel's Edit and asked if you would Transfer his Memorial Page to me since I was a direct descendant (see below). You wrote me back and said that you were also a direct descendant through your mother and that you would be adding information to his Bio. I took that to mean that you wanted to continue to maintain his Page; however, today I was on his Page and see that you have transferred his Page to someone else. Is there a reason why you would transfer his Memorial to her and not the first direct descendant who asked you? I am very shocked! My first request to you follows.

Meredith Trawick :-(

Shari -

Thank you for creating a Memorial Page for my 7th great-grandfather. If he isn't your kin, will you please transfer him to my care?

Thank you -

RE: Zoe Ella Lane Simmonds
My grandmother was Hazel Abbott Kraus Harris Swords. My mother Betty Evans is still living. This is what I was told by my mom and Grandmother. Aunt Zoe was my Grandma Hazel's Aunt. When Emerine died, Henry gave Earl to Aunt Zoe. He later married my grandmother but did not take Earl back. He took Grandma to Texas and they lived their until Grandma became pregnant with my mother. He abandoned them and moved on to wife three, they had three boys that I know of, maybe four, then he left them and married another women and had two girls with her in California. Aunt Zoe swore the family to keep the secret about Earl not being her own child for fear that they would take him away. She was a wonderful mother to Earl. My mother discovered her relationship with Earl and the others much later in life and met an corresponded with her half brothers and sisters until they died. I think she is the only living child of Henry Kraus living. She is 90. If you have questions, email me at Patti

RE: GEDmatch?
Hello, Shari,

Yes, I am the same Sadiehaze as is on GEDmatch. I'm pretty new to that particular site, so I think I have it changed now so my email is visable. I also changed the nickname for that test so it will match my ancestry name.

Please be sure to tell me if it works or not, since I would love to see how we're related. ^.^
