|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in Genealogy all my life. I had a grandmother McDonald who loved to tell stories, and I really loved to hear them I got serious about family History in 1969 when we moved from CA back home to KS and I could visit with some of the great aunts & Uncles. I had a Bonesbuddy who loved to travel with me. We have been from coast to coast tracking bones...Now it seems everything is on computer however I still love to get out and go to libraries, court house's and cemeteries. Now my Bonesbuddy is on Find a grave I shall always miss her. I am enjoying working with find a grave. I had three children, four grandchildren and four great grands. I love every one of them and hope some decide to carry on with the genealogy.|
If you find mistakes please let me know via Edit.
After all I am only human and fast becoming an OLD Human.

|RobMinteer57||good grief you could have a file full of transfers|
I do have "a file full of transfers", and have transferred over 80,000--most of them as "mass transfers" of entire cemeteries done by Find A Grave--with very few of them being anybody's parents, grandparents, etc.
Here's a message I sent to another contributor recently which explains why I am requesting so many:
Thanks so much for the continuing transfers. I'm about two-thirds through my biggest family, the Wrights, with many more smaller families still to go. I think you may hear from me again when I get to the Ashcrafts.
Over the coming years as I work my way back through and add the Bios, it will be so much easier to be able to add them directly to all the pages that so many people have been kind enough to transfer to me. For those that I have to send as SACs, I'll have to keep copies then check back in 30 days, and if they haven't been added I'll then need to forward them to Edit. That's a lot of extra work for a lot of people, which I'm hoping to avoid as much as possible."
My guess is that through the rest of my life (40-some years, I hope) that over three-fourths of my distant cousins' pages will never get transferred to any direct descendants (perhaps as many as a fourth of them because they have no direct descendants), nor ever have any Bio info added to them. I will feel a great sense of satisfaction adding as much as I can to as many as I can. Transfers are, of course, not necessary in order to get Bios added, but, as explained above, it does make things easier for everyone.

Oh my goodness!! This would be exciting to find some more Spangler family, as I have few.
For Jennie Dixon - she married Thomas Richard Quick, and they are my Lynch-Quick line of desc. Not a direct desc from them, but from Thomas's grandmother Mary Ann Hamilton Quick Lynch.
Thomas's grandfather David Nelson Quick was killed in the Civil War and his wife then married James G. Lynch. The Quick-Lynch families were very close, and my James Lynch raised the Quick children as his own.
My Spanglers are in TN and then Scott Co. and Washington Co. VA- then Alabama- then Indiana-. My John Spangler married Susan Hensley in Scott Co. VA. After John Spangler died in Alabama, his wife Susan went North to be near family - brother Isaac Hensley.
Please feel free to contact me via email. Spanglers are a huge family. Mine go back to VA and TN.

It is ALL Kansas. I don't know that I really want to sell it... I found one on Ebay for 112.50, Marked down from 150.
Here is a new reprint for much cheaper:

I found the book at home as I had decided to keep it; didn't have it at the shop. Are you really interested in it????? I don't have a price yet; I don't want to give it away but don't want to rip you off, either....
|Becky Doan||RE: Grace Meeker|
Yes...somewhere!!! I think I took it home. I'll check.
My grandmother was Wanda Zirkle Jilka, from Herington, and her sister was Veda Zirkle Vickery, from Wichita. I think Veda's daughter, Lucretia Vickery Ottaway is active in it in Wichita. I don't really know her, though; met her at funerals...
|Becky Doan||RE: Grace Meeker|
Sure! My grandmother and great-aunt were really into DAR; they tried to get me involved.... I love the stuff, love the info, but my time is pretty limited. I never did apply! BTW, I have an antique shop, and a couple of months ago I ran across a book about the marking of the Santa Fe Trail. It was all about the DAR women at the time who pulled it off. I was impressed, and grateful that they did. Thanks. Becky

Am going to do some digging and will paste info for you (right or wrong, who knows!). I sent edits. Becky

FORMER STATE REGENT DIES AT OTTAWA, WAS 82
Ottawa, Dec. 5, A.P.--Miss Grace Meeker, 82, widely known Ottawa naturalist who frequently was called on to identify plant and animal life died Thursday.
A resident of Ottawa since 1870, she was a former city librarian, former state regent, and state secretary of the Kansas D.A.R., and an active member of the Kansas Academy of Science. Funeral services will be Monday.
|Patricia Max||RE: Lewis J Rust|
I believe the information came from Rust or Killebrew researchers since there were several marriages between the Rust line and the Killebrew line.
I'll search through my records to see what I have this evening after I get home from work. It's always great to see my email at work, but it's also frustrating not to be able to respond with all the correct information.

|Kathleen Ferguson* Matthews||Ruby and Cleo Hitt.|
