|Bio and Links|
In the 1980's I started researching my Linn ancestors (without benefit of computer) but got busy with my sons' activities and put it on hold. In 1999 a cousin got me involved with my Steinberg ancestors and I have been going full speed ahead ever since. |
Upon graduating from the University of Illinois my father obtained employment in the State of Washington, far from any relatives. My ancestors (after entering the USA)settled in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Jersey - I want to experience first hand where and how they lived so I travel the country obtaining data, meeting people, seeing the sights and tramping cemeteries. I missed the "cousin experience" growing up and think that is why I enjoy genealogy so much -- meeting new cousins (who cares if they are 1st or 10th cousins)and sharing our family histories.
I am researching Linn, Gibson, Weir, Scott, Polk, Steinberg, Koerner, Mitten, Bennett, Switzer (Swisher), Slonaker, Shaw, Townsend, McCarty and Whitehead, Miller, Schroen, Glabe, Schafer/Schaefer/Shafer. I am also reseaching Dishon, Deshon, DeShon, Deschamps and Herrold for my two sons.

|FRANKLIN SAMPSON||RE: Phillip Allen Sampson|
I am not sure where I found Phillip I can't seem to find him on here now either but what I was wondering is do you know anything about the Daniel Samson family that is buried in the Gosport Cemetery in Marion County Iowa. Daniel was married to Elanor Pea and I know they had 2 children Levi and Nancy are twins that were born in 1840 in Missouri and I thought Phillip might be one of there children but I m not seeing a memorial for him now either! Don't know

Do you happen to know what the inscription on Michael's headstone is? We are unable to read it hoping you may have traced it?

|Kristy Gravlin||RE: Springer Connection|
Before you go, write and I'll give you the details on how to find Mary Jane Springer and her babe. I think I went the fourth time before I found it! Now that I know, it's easy.
I think they are the only ones of her family in that cemetery, "Pioneer" but it also had some other names through the years. One was "Black". And I think there were a couple others that were surnames.
The man who took the picture for find a grave did a good job of lighting the area. In fact I can read it much easier on line than for real. On the other hand, there is something very special about standing there.
