Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my families for decades: Lewis, Smith, Souders, Whetsel, Hosler, Davis, Howren, Baugher, Kinnaman and many many more. I also submit data for others and read the occasional forgotten cemetery.

Most of my on-the-ground work has been in England, OH, PA, IN, IL AR, OK and KS although I have dropped in on various cemeteries just on a whim.

I live in Tulsa and Tahlequah, OK. I am available at least to do work on the memorials that I have published, and can help you get some basic info in this part of the world if you need it.

I have no idea what this message means:
james McGown was not james McGOWAN. his death record file 38134 was james McGown m Carrie, b 11-11-1946 laborer, d 1-8-1927 b champaign county, ohio to David McGown b Scotland and Eliazath Turl b Scotland. He was Co I, 134th OH. His wife was Carrie MGown. He died in Broadway, Union Co, OH. he enlisted in the cw 1864 x9 * 9h 134 indNREY

I don't have a memorial for a James McGowan- I do have memorials for my grandfather James and his father James McGown... my great grandfather was divorced of his forst wife and second married maybe that is what you are referring to but I have no idea where McGowan came into it other than repeated mispellings of the name which I didn't do.

RE: Sarah Largent
Hello whoever you are.
Have we communicated in the past?
Interesting that I should receive two different communiques on the same day, one here and one to my gmail address.
I do indeed know that Noah was married 3 times and have that in my database. I too have been interested in genealogy for a while. My primary interest since about 1983 is and was in the Largent line. If you would like I can update or delete my link to the memorial for Noah. The Sarah Largent Memorial will remain either way. All I did was to link her to her only known husband.

RE: Edward
Oops, I said the wrong name. Edward "Ted" Lewis was Jennie's 2nd husband.

RE: Edward
Jennie Gibson Beal Edwards was Otis' mother. Otis Lee Beal was my grandfather, whom we never knew. Even my father (Edwin Beal) never met him.
Where did you find the photograph of Jennie and Ted Edwards? Are there any other photos from that source?
