Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genalogy and family history since I was 16. I also study the meaning of surnames, but my interest in heraldry is really what got me started. I have done extensive work on my wife's family, as well. Principal names of interest include Middleton, Stogdill, See and Allen. My wife's families are Bidstrups, Nelsons, Greenes and Fords. I was born in Centerville, Iowa and grew up in Independence, Missouri. I have lots of relatives who lived in Schuyler and Scotland Counties in Missouri and Appanoose and Davis Counties in Iowa. I live in San Antonio, Texas.

Brannin Family
Hi Phil, I have a Lucy Jane Rice Brannin in a cemetery I found on a neighbors farm. Would she be of interest to you? I also think there is a Brannin cemetery south of Otterville, Mo. (Morgan Co)

Are you in touch with any of her descendants? I would love to connect with them.

Are you related to the above? She was my first cousin twice removed. I would like to ask permission to use your pictures for my family history and on I would, of course, credit you with the photo.

Thank you for the work you do, it is appreciated.

Was wondering if you would link Sally up with Roger Southern as her husband. He is in the New Auburn, CA. You know she must of had a lot of pictures taken of her, as she was a top model of Sacrament CA. Wonder where one could get one,

RE: 97024129
you said that Sally was your wife's 1st cousin. What is your wife's name so I can ask Samantha if she has a cousin by that name. I thought it said she married Roger in 1983,first mistake I made here, as she married him in 1973 and I do not have the year she was born in, but from the records on the headstone, Sally was born in 1955. That would of been right too, as she was 19 when they got married in Reno NV. it says she got killed in 1977 , and that would be right too, as she had Samatha June on June 30th 1974. Well it is all matching up right again isn't it. I have been trying to find a picture of her from Google as for her being the top model in Sacramento then, but can't find one, not even of the car crash on the Sacramento River bridge the year of 77, Does your wife have a picture of Samantha?? I would know her for sure that way. I have also went back into Sally's husband's grave site Roger Souther in the New Auburn Cem. and put in his daughter's name and who she is married too, and their 3 children. Samantha lives in Rockling with her husband and 3 children. Keeley is Samantha's last name, I even spelled it wrong on Rogers site. what next. do get back to me on this, so I will know for sure, thank you for writing and clearing this all up again. Lenora

Sir: I see from looking at my records again this is not the same person my nephew marred, as they got married in 1983. So will have to go on looking. Sorry for the mistake. Mrs. Collier

I have finally found my neice Sally June Bidstrup that died in a car crash in May of 1977, It was a head on, with the big bridge going out of Sac towards woodland, she hit the corner of the rails at the beginning of the bridge, traveling pretty fast. She was born in 5-11-1955 died 5-15-1977. She was a one of the top models in Sacramento CA. She married my nephew Irvin Southern, and they had a child together by the name of Samantha June Southern born 6-30-1974 in Sac. CA. She is now married and has 3 children. You can go to and bring up the cemetery New Auburn, then type in the name Roger Southern, he was adoped by Roger Southern. but him and his mothers grave are there. Leona Southern for most of the information you would be looking for. I know very little about Sallys family except they are all gone, but one sister now but she has a different mother. I have been trying to find a picture of her for she was a very well know model in that day, but can't find one to be able to put it on her grave site. Maybe you can find one. I will be checking back later to see what you can come up with. Mrs. Collier
