I have been going to cemeteries to do look ups for people and on my trips I have taken several pictures of headstones. Not all are related to me. My hopes are that someone else out there is looking and needs a little helping hand. If there is information that you would like added to a loved one please feel free to e-mail me and I would be glad to put the information in for you or if you would like to put it on Find A Grave please e-mail me and I will delete the one I put in. Some of the surnames in my family are: Fathers side; Willis, Skinner, Campbell, Tarr, Williams, Webb and McFarland; Mothers side; Schaer, Wells, Lee, Smith, Cahalan, and Olson. Good Luck to all that are searching!! Thank you again to Find A Grave for helping with my look ups and letting me contribute to help others. |

Hi Shawn. Thank you for your amazing contributions to Find a Grave. I can't express how much your work has helped in my research.
I am trying to link my Illinois LETTO family to Jeffrey R. Phillips Iowa LETTOW family. My family came to America as LETTOW and dropped the ending W.
Is there any way you can make contact with Jeffrey to see if we can connect our families? I wonder if there is anyone in the LETTOW line that has taken a DNA test to see if we have a link.
Again, thank you for your contributions and am looking forward to a possible connection.

Hello, I'm trying to find descendants of Lewis B Smith:
I believe he was living in Jackson County, Indiana in 1840 and suspect he may have been a close relative to my Smiths. I have GEDmatch, F362100, and yDNA at SmithsWorldWide.org http://www.smithsworldwide.org/smtestcompareg.asp?grouping=GRP-R-M269-9
