Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Arleta. Married 46 years, 4 children, 12 grand-children; we became great-grandparents in 2010, with four more in 2013-2015 (and I'm so young!). Life is exciting to say the least.

We love the Lord Jesus, believe in salvation by grace, and in the power of prayer. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." –Romans 10:13


I am one of the 8th great-grandchildren of Godfrey I and Mary Ragsdale who died 371 years ago on April 18, 1644.


I have been doing genealogy since the early '70s when it meant going to those dusty ol' archives in court house basements. Now most information is only a click away and way easier to connect to a long lost cousin you didn't even know you had!


Proverbs 29:2 says, "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn." Pray for America and our government!


A dear, sweet friend, Irwin Schiff, passed away October 16th.


Thank you all so much for remembering my loved ones on their Birth and Angel Days.

So Sorry
Hi, so sorry I haven't stopped by but my computer crashed so I couldn't make my daily visits.

Maria Hollingsworth
I was looking at the post for Maria Hollingsworth in Monroe County, Missouri. Her spouse was actually Bartholomew Smith Hollingsworth (went by B.S. Hollingsworth). Sometimes he went by Benjamin Hollingsworth but his name was Bartholomew. They did have a son, Henry C. Hollingsworth but he went to California with his dad in 1850 during the Gold Rush. I believe I saw him in the 1860 Census in California but cannot find a trace after that.

Maria was Maria Measons and I believe related to Elizabeth Ann Measons of Monroe County who married B.S.'s brother George Hollingsworth in 1836 in Monroe County.

Maria had daughters Georgina, Julia, Emea, Melville, and a son Henry.
