Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in genealogy in the early 1990's and am dedicated to preserving family histories.

I am a member of the National Genealogical Society, the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society and the New England Historic Genealogical Society. I am also am a lifetime member of the Idaho Genealogy Society and the Edmund Rice Association.

I am a Mayflower descendant, have several Revolutionary War ancestors, and three Civil War grandfathers.

My biggest claim to fame is that my great-great grandmother, Laura LaDocia Ingalls Waldvogle Forbes, is the Aunt Docia that Laura Ingalls Wilder writes into her Little House book, "By the Shores of Silver Lake".

I have visited repositories across the country, conducting research and gathering documentation...from the National Archives to various (7 so far) State Archives, the Library of Congress to state and local Genealogy Society libraries, and of course, the Family History Center in Salt Lake.

I am a volunteer transcriber and arbitrator for Family Search. I have done quite a bit of volunteer research in the local (Boise, ID) repositories.

I have begun working Cloverdale Cemetery in Boise as a Find a Grave volunteer. I have friends (but no relatives) resting there.

RE: John Henry Melius marker photo
I think I've got it all fixed now.

Let me know if it's still wrong.

Sorry I got the wrong one, and so glad you caught it right away =)

RE: John Henry Melius marker photo
Well darn it anyway! Sorry about that! I will have to try again on my next visit down here. I will delete the incorrect one (or did you already?)
It may be a few months before I will be back in the area...sorry :(

RE: David McLeod
It is the "foot marker" for his grave. You know that little stone that has just the initials (usually).. I liked how it looked with the little C, so I added it. Is this a problem? I can delete it if you wish, but it is part of his grave.

Forbes in LaPorte
Hello, in regards to Hiram Forbes being married prior to marrying your ancestor Laura LaDocia Ingalls Forbes (making you related to both Pa and Laura Ingalls! cool), I found this proof that Hiram's first wife died young. Not sure if this has been covered in any of the 89 previous messages on your page.

I am on the search to see if my ancestor Adora Luella Forbes Smith is related to Hiram Forbes. Her US origin in Find A Grave is listed as LaPorte, Iowa rather than LaPorte, Indiana, with parents unknown, and I am looking for proof of state and ancestral trail.

In Washington State,

Maurine Bryan
