Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lots of information about our family was on the verge of being lost, so I began researching both my and my husband's extended families plus families from the small towns we both came from.

Family connections expanded. I received much material for the Dare/Twitty/Baker family from Dare researcher M.Doris Provart Gower, who graciously agreed to my sharing with you. Darnell-Hollaway/ Holloway family got help from Evah Hollaway Lager Picard, Grace Norris Hollaway and Lee Ann Hollaway Bailleu.

The Zahn/Brand/Schneider Kukuck & Voigt family was assisted by Talisman Temple Barbosa, Mary Farley Cummins and David Peipho. The Steinberg/ Koerner family has research from cousins Don & Janet Dickason, Lois Steinberg Adams and Ruth Koerner McCabe.

The extended Martin/Snelling/Shupe family come from my interviews with family members and the research of Terry Harper of Albion, IL, a fellow family member.

The Witt/Hoffman/Franks family has material from Mary Ann Franks O'Neill, Eleanor Hensen Kerber and the website of John Franks.

The Gerken-Helmers (Meyer/Martens, Brandt) family is mostly mine with help of cousins Mary Ann Hill and Eunice Martens Blissard.

Other individuals added information for their extended family. Most of them are credited in their additions. St. John's Lutheran church of Anchor, IL has a public website which gave much data for my great-grandfather and those families who lived near my childhood home.

Now I can share what I've found with others and get even more accurate data. I have used the best information I have, but will gladly correct errors and add or subtract material or transfer memorials if requested by someone closer.

Happy family researching!!

RE: the families related to Franks
You're welcome. It looked like you were ahead of me by several years, but I don't know what happened. I would never knowingly create a duplicate memorial. I met Mary Ann when I went to my uncle's funeral in 2011. Her research of the Franks family is stellar. Take care.

Charles, Ida, and Orville Franks
I noticed that we have duplicate memorials for the subject individuals. I'm not directly related to the Franks (my uncle Robert Benson was married to Ruth Franks Benson), so I have taken my memorials down and will defer to yours. I did take photos of the gravestones when I visited the Fulton cemetery in 2011. If you don't mind I have added them to your memorials and you may have complete rights to them. The photos in findagrave are reduced in size, so let me know if you would like me to email the original full definition photos. By the way, Robert Benson had indicated his wife's middle name was Ione, not Ida. I figure he would know. My regards to Mary Ann O'Neill.

Eva Dare Dickey
I have transferred both Eva and her son Everett, to you. It appears she died in childbirth. If I find her husbands grave I will enter and transfer to you.

RE: Eva Dare Dickey
Coulterville is in Randolph County,ILL. The cemetery is on the edge of town, close to Washington Co. I have Eva's husband as Joseph Newton Dickey, Jr. They are not related, as near as I can tell, but at one time I thought his father and mother were. That is when I entered them. I will transfer to you. I have a lot of ancestors in Jefferson Co.(White) My ancestors seemed to like to live on the borders of counties, thus having records in both. Hope this is your Eva. Kathyrn

Detha Matheras Holloway
Shes my paternal grt grt grandmother. There is some information I am seeking information on her husband, Samuel Reynolds, on who I can find no information. The site says he was a widower when he married Detha, but I cannot find to whom he was married.

Also, I would like to make some corrections and additions. I have tried several times contacting Nora Tauvell, who now maintains Detha's entry, but have received no reply.

You can also reach me at my e-mail:
suzyashmore@hotmail.com

Thanks for the help!

Eva Dare Dickey
Hello, I believe I have your oldest child of Thomas and Nancy, Willson, Dare. I started researching the Dickey family, but found out Joseph Newton, Sr. was not the one I was looking for. However, I did put memorials for Joseph, Sr., Eliza, and Eva. What I have out there is #113675146, in Coulterville Cemetery. If you would like to have her transferred to you I will do so. I don't seem to have Joseph, Jr. I will add your info. to mine in my records although they are not the ones in my line. Thank you. Kathyrn

RE: Gladys Mendenhall
Thanks for your kind offer to transfer Gladys' memorial. Not necessary as I am not related, just ran across her obituary.
