Bio and Links
I am a professional genealogist and have been doing genealogy research for over 31 years. The family lines I have extensively researched have been Seth Martin, Jabez Ham, Johann Jacob Frisch, Christian Klemm, Johan Lorenz Schenk, Wiles, Barnett, Bushnell, James Dempster, Judy Upham, and many others. I have finalized my research by completing books on 7 of the above family members. As you know research is really never finished. I enjoy helping others to trace their past. Instead of just entering names and dates like many do, I try to enter information about that person and link family members together. This helps when someone is trying to locate an ancestor. If I can't locate the family members, then I do enter just the dates. I also believe in keeping family with family so if there is someone that you want transferred who is a family member, just ask and I will be glad to do so.

Feel free to share/copy any of my info or pictures. I believe it belongs to all descendants and I am just fortunate to be the one to locate it for descendants.

RE: Hadessa and Mathias Bear
You said in reply to my SAC about your duplicated memorial:

"Yes, I see the duplicates as the first one was put in with initials. However, the contributor has passed away and can't make changes of the correct name, dates or the obituary so the duplicates will remain as I have entered more information for their descendants to locate."

My reply to your April 28th posting:

My request to merge your information on the duplicated memorial to the original memorial was done today. You were given credit for the information. You reply to the SAC was enclosed in the request.

There is only one memorial for a grave site.

You can do edits to names, dates, relationship links, marker transcriptions, and other stuff. If the member doesn't respond in 21 days to your request, the edit is automatically done for you. If you want something added to the bio section The edit tab is on the upper right corner of the memorial.....and the memorial manage doesn't reply, send it to "EDIT" at

There is no reason for making a duplicated memorial. All duplicated memorials are merged into the originals....eventually.

Hi, I sent an email to you on Sunday as you requested, just checking to verify you received it. If for any reason you did not, please let me know and I will resend again.

RE: Sarah Sayler
Thank you for your response. Do you know if there is any obituary that might be available for her that I could locate? I have but nothing in there and I saw she was too early for the online death records. I am trying to verify her parents.

I have just viewed your entry of my Uncle Fred Mc Junkin's memorial. You stated that you tried to get all of Della Nett McJunkin's children attached to Fred. In order to make this message short, I will invite you to view my NETT - PERKINS FAMILY TREE. Go to my tree and call up Fred or Della Mae Nett. View Della's marriages and list of children. Two children are Brasher, six are McJunkin. All these children are listed with correct parents in the NETT - PERKINS FAMILY TREE in Della's list of children. Sincerely, Ethel Shafer

Roy Cooper #79802664
Hello, You have added several FFHR records for my ancestors, which I appreciate very much.

I am curious if you might have records for Roy Cooper. He was born 1889; died Oct 16, 1925 at Peoria State Hospital, Limestone twsp. Peoria, IL. His death cert. lists "Ziegler Co. Peoria" as Undertakers, and I thought he could possibly have been transferred by Zieglers to the local FFH for burial in the Fulton County Zion Cemetery, near Fairview, IL.
(Roy's father is William Henry Cooper, whose record you have added.)

Thank You very much for your time and and work!

You are very welcome. I have known Aaron and Ardith since 1971, and verified this information with Ardith before submitting it.

RE: Otto Schenk
You are very welcome. If you want to create a memorial for his 2nd wife Gertrude O. Schenk, I will add the same photographs that I took for Michael Otto Schenk. Leon

RE: James McCance
Yes, I noticed your reference to the conflict. I do realize that you put in a lot of work on the memorial--sorry! I'm sorry, I didn't mean to sound judgemental. I simply wanted each party to realize the duplication. Again, I apologize if I sounded inappropriate in any way!

I am related--distantly. I found the problem in the course of my research. You may transfer the memorial to me if you wish. I only wanted the record to be accurate.
