Bio Photo "What is it about that place that brings tears to your eyes? I tell you, walking through a cemetery and seeing the same names there that I know...oh, it was so poignant." --- Mavis Fruge

I've been researching my children's ancestors since 1995 when my father gave me a condensed version of his grandfather's diary. (I now have in my possession the full diary which I am slowly but surely transcribing.) I am also fortunate to have photos, documents, and the old family Bible complete with many old family records from my mother's ancestors and I have been deemed the Family Historian by my husband's family and have many photos and documents given to me by his sister for safe keeping.

It is my goal to preserve these photos, records, facts and stories by way of Internet storage where they will remain long after I am gone and to make these things available for the use of future researchers. In this way I hope to honor my ancestors and create interest for my immediate family members who have entrusted me to be the keeper of our past.

Names I am researching include: Allison, Anderson, Bauman, Bishop, Blevins, Bloomer, Boutcher, Brashears, Cook, Cox, Cundiff, Darling, Davis, Delaney, Dungan, Evans, Fletcher, Gollaher, Grabeel, Grunden, Hartzell, Huckstepp, Jackson, Ketcham, Larimer, Leonard, Logsdon, Lord, Martin, Mattingly, McIlvoy, Melvin, Metcalf, Miller, Newby, Osborn(e), Owen, Patterson, Rice, Rogers, Root, Rosenbaum, Runyan, Schiedenhelm, Schmetzer, Smith, Sutton, Townsend, Trowbridge, Tyree, Vaughn, Wallen, Wheaton and many others in areas of Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma.

Cindarella "Rilla" (Whitaker) Ridlen
I am trying to track down Cindarella "Rilla" (Whitaker) Ridlen, widow of Isaac Newton Ridlen & John C. Trowbridge. I was wondering if you had any information regarding her following the death of John in 1909? I know that she lived until 1951 (or atleast what the Ridlen/Ridlon/Redlon family has written about her), but I can not find a burial location, re-marriage, or her in a census except for 1900 and 1940. In the 1940, she is living as Rilla Trowbridge, 78, with her son, Ira Ridlen and his wife, Della.

Keep up the good work on the diaries. I had my grandfather's diaries--they are now in the hands of my sister. He kept diaries from 1934 to his death in 1956. Some family members wanted copies, but I didn't want to let them out of my hands, so I transcribed them all, put them on floppy disks, and sent them to her. She put them into book form, and I now have a copy of the hard-bound book of my grandfather's diaries. I hope you can do something like that. It is really neat.

Darrell M. Wallen
Hi Lisa
Re: Memorial# 72571013 for Darrell Wallen. There is no wife attached to him and since your name is the same as his and you created the memorial, I'm wondering if you know his wife's name. I'm looking for Donna Louise (Voice) Wallen whom I believe was married to this Darrell Wallen. Do you know who Darrell's wife is and possibly where she is buried?
Thank you for your response.

RE: Nancy Rizzardi
You're welcome! By the way, her cemetery is one of the most peaceful I've ever been to.

May I have permission to use your photos you posted on Oak Hill Cemetery graves (George and Eliza Parkhurst or others) to post on my Facebook page "Quenemo, Kansas 66528". It is a page I set up to draw interest in Quenemo history. Thank You for your response, Mike.

I guess it's up to you. I always include the copyright with the newspaper's information, that way I'm acknowledging that the information is the copyright of the newspaper.

RE: Louis Grabeel
No problem. I love doing this. I have so many more photos to upload but it sure takes awhile. We have been without power and internet since last Monday due to the hurricane so I am very far behind. Just got back service at home today. We are very lucky. Let me know if I can help with anything else. Have a great day. Gladys

Hello Lisa,

I saw your beautiful note on my Mom's memorial (Maxine Iveta Grunden Cook) and know that if you are a distant relative of hers, then you surely are of mine as well. Please free to email me through find a grave at any time as if I have any pertinent information for your research, I shall be glad to share.

Thank you.
