Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a full fledged genealogy junkie!! I have researched every line of my family and that of my husband over the past 20+ years. Some of my family names include but are not way limited to... ABBEY, BARRETT, DUNKIN, WELCH, STANLEY, REDMAN, SHARP, LEERIGHT, CHEAIRS, COOPER, BATTLE. My husbands lines includes but not limited to PRESCOTT, O'CONNOR, ALLEN, POOL, SANDEL, NAUL, ASKEW, JOHNSTON, WEAVER. I even have my ex-husbands family that I have researched.. see yold ya I was a genealogy junkie! lol

In addition to my own personal research,I also do transcription for the World Archives Project, and also do grave transcription for and hold the record for the more graves transcribed in one day! (over 1200)

I have found many of my ancestors listed on FindAGrave and find it to be an invaluable tool!

I am the mother of 5 of the best children on the face of the earth... ok, I am a little partial! I am also the grandma to the most adorable grandson that has ever been born! ok, again... a little biased! LOL

While your here and if you have a few minutes, please visit my mother's memorial. My mother,Sheila, was an AMAZING woman and my best friend. I miss her more with each passing year. I love you mommy ;o)

Also...if you have the time, please visit my memorial FOR CHEYENNE. Cheyenne Rose was the sweet twin daughter of a very good friend of mine who died just 2 weeks after her 1st birthday due to a terrible freak accident in the home. Cheyenne's mommy has started a non profit org. to help bring to light these hidden dangers to help prevent other deaths such as Cheyenne's.

Thank you all for leaving flowers for my mother as well as for Cheyenne and those in my Domestic Violence Victims memorial. It makes me so happy to know that you care.

FREEDOM IS NOT FREE! Never forget those men and women who are serving and have served this great nation.

NOTE: All photos on any of the memorials held by me come from either photos I hold, photos from family members they have permitted me to use and scan, photos that have been contributed by other users, or used by permission from fellow researcher from

Callie Welch
I'm hoping you can shed light on a genealogy connection for me. I'm told that Maxie Callie Lester b 1904 in Huntington, Texas md Henry Bye Welch. Callie was said to be the daughter of Robert Joshua Lester and Hester Anne Whitaker. Robert was b in Lawenceville, GA and md Hester Ann 1874 in Nacogdoches, Texas. I'm having trouble with the Maxie Callie Lester connection and the Henry Bye Welch connection.

Thank you for any help.

RE: Youngs in Carmi, Illinois
Oh my goodness your reply was fast. So I didn't see it until now. Thank you for checking for me but, do to the dates I have uncovered myself they couldn't possibly be a match. I also believe this Joseph is related to the Young's in Carmi I just cant figure it out. This so far has been our craziest relative to uncover any really good information on. The following information is all I have and I appreciate you greatly for looking up what you have.

Joseph Young married Nancy Hodkins on 10/26/1851 at age 23 in White County, Illinois. Per his age at this marriage he would have been born in @ 1828. I am unsure what happened to Nancy. Dont know if she died or they divorced.

The same Joseph Young then married Margaret Hodkins on 10/18/1855. It appears that Margaret's husband James Hodkins was a brother or cousin to Nancy. Margarets maiden name was Driggers.

Margaret and Joseph had a daughter named Josephine Young in September of 1856 and Joseph died on 10/04/1856 at the age of 28 per White County Records.

I also have Josephine Young McGowan's obituary where within it it states that her father was Joseph Young and mother was Margaret Drigger's Young.

It seems so sad that I can not locate any further information on him or even where he is buried. Even sadder is the fact that all of his most important life events all occurred in October for him from birth to death.

Anyways, I really appreciate your time and effort checking for me. I just really want to solve this crazy family mystery.

Thanks again,

RE: Youngs in Carmi, Illinois

I did some more research and have up dated information on Joseph Young. He actually died in October of 1856, one month after his daughter Josephine was born. He was married to Margaret "Driggers" Young at the time. He was also previously married to a Nancy Hodkins. I am hoping with this new information you could check and see if he was a relative of yours. All three lived in Carmi, Illinois. There is American Indian heritage in my husbands family history and I was wondering if it coming from the Young or the Driggers side of the family. Fingers crossed as usual. Thanks for any further information you may be able to locate within your family with this new death date for Joseph Young.
