Bio Photo I don't transfer to memorial collectors!! If that is you, don't expect a response!!!!!


Many people are studying their family history to find medical information. Among the conditions that are thought hereditary and at least partly preventable or treatable are depression, diabetes, kidney disease, hypertension, heart disease, and cancer. Omitting medical information is not polite, IMHO.

I found a statement about links that perfectly expresses my own beliefs. I'm posting it with permission.--------------------------
Let's help the next family member or researcher that visits a memorial by adding all the family links that we know. When family members are not linked, it makes the next person do the research all over again. Also, if we have the information, let's use it before it is forgotten.I also believe that family links make this site easier to use. The easier it is to use, the more it will be used and the better it will get.

My number of memorials managed is increasing because I apparently am the succession plan for a few contributors, at least partially. I don't mind, it's easy to maintain memorials.

William James Keys
William James Keys is the Father of my grandfather. You are right, he was a retired railroad engineer as were his two sons. If you are a history buff you can find a short mention on him in an Arcadia Book called Mingo Junction. He laid track for the trains that were just starting to run in the area of Steubenville, Ohio. I have a picture of the first train engine out of Mingo Junction if you are interested in seeing it drop me a note.

Thank you
Thanks for the heads up on Memorial# 97027124 and Memorial# 117487864 - I've added a NOTE to both of them. I think they can both remain out there. Would you agree?

Almon Stelter
I have accepted your link to his parents, Albert & Mathilda Stelter. I have his obituary, and have now added it to his memorial. His wife & my dad were 1st cousins.

Re: William Pickens
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the additional information for the memorial created for William Walter "Billie" Pickens (1880-1961). Your information will certainly help build more of his family tree and make his memorial more complete. It is due to fellow family historians such as yourself that make this site so great. Warmly, Helen Pickens Murphy, Nashville, TN

Hi Tom -
This is my Great Aunt (Elsa Kincaid Chillingworth). I would like to connect her her memorial to her mother and siblings. I've been researching and documenting the family for years but have not been on this site as much and forget how. Can you help me, or transfer her to me so I can? Her mother is Domitilla Aguilar Kincaid, wife of E.O. Kincaid. Her sibs are Ella Hanneman, Josephine Jones, Eddie Kincaid and my great grandmother Emma Cecelia Kincaid (Ledford) Young. My mom died recently so time to connect the dots again.
Grateful for your work.
Kind Regards,
C.M. Standley
