Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, my biological father was Thomas Matthew Cook, but I was adopted by the Awalt family. All this started me on a quest to find my roots through family history research. I have done a lot of research on both my adopted family and my natural family which has been very satisfying. I was even blessed to meet my natural sisters, an aunt and cousins through this process which was icing on the cake. They are amazing people and we have all become good friends. I have a Doctoral degree in Psychology and am a licensed Psychologist in San Diego, CA. I'm a member of various historical societies and genealogical groups to include the Tuscarawas County, Ohio Historical Society, Austins Family Assiciation of America in Texas, Teeple People, New Netherland Society, Family Tree DNA groups and others. I have a special interest in my Dutch colonial ancestry who were among some of the first settlers of New Amsterdam (now the New York area), as well as my Scottish roots. Some of the names I am researching in my own family tree are: Austin, Barton, Bell, Bogaert, Cook, Cornelius, Courtight, Cummins, Curtis, Gambrel, Groff, Hall, Hazen, Henson, Herr, Kinne, Kortreght, Knickerbocker, Lanning, Lauderdale, Lyttle, Maitland, Neale, Pitney, Roosa, Teeple, Thomas, Van Alstyne, and Ware. I'm willing to help others with their research in any way I can and will share my own family history which can be found on Ancestry. com. Feel free to use any information and pictures I have posted.

Rhoades family
Hi Robert,

I forgot to mention the Lone Tree Cemetery is in Telluride, San Miguel County, Colorado.

RE: Moses Rhosdes
I was in the Lone Tree Cemetery and photographed the tombstone of two of Moses and Sarah Jane Rhoades' children buried there: Thomas A and Maud M. I have suggested the edit to be connected to your memorials and am awaiting acceptance on them. I am not related. I just happened to be photographing their tombstone and did some research yesterday to find their parents and other siblings. The 1900 census states only 2 of Moses and Sarah's 6 children are living. In the 1885 Colorado state census, it lists 5 of these 6: Cora, Olive, Thomas, Mary M (Maud), and Fred.

RE: John H. Gambrel
My apologies. I posted the wrong photo this morning. Put John Jr.'s on John Sr's memorial.
I have now corrected it, and posted John Jr. and Agnes now too. There are other Gambrel's in the same row....William T, 1857-1947; Matilda F, 1886 (or maybe 56 or 66--imbedded dirt)-1927; Paul G. 1897-1956; Alma F. 1886-1942. Let me know if you want any of these photos posted somewhere.

RE: Doolittle
I've made a few oops, too! These "older ones" are harder to find and sometimes historical societies that mean well make errors, too. I know there was no intent.
On the right side of the memorial there should be a delete tab because you originated the memorial. You click on that.

John is my husband's 7x grandfather.

The other John Doolittle
The earlier memorial for John Doolittle is #64549954. I should have left it in previous message. Sorry.

duplicate of John Doolittle
I am researching the Doolittle family and realized that your memorial of him #139364672 is a duplicate of another one established earlier. This creates confusion for researchers. I'm sure you did not realize. One of the memorials should be deleted for accuracy.

RE: John Hazen
He is buried Harmony Baptist Cemetery, Lawrence county Pa. My sister-in-law and I are trying to complete the cemetery records with pictures. It may take a while.
Any other questions feel free to notify me.

Annie Cummins
I posted a document on Annie's memorial that names her as the daughter of Christian Cummins and Catherine Bayles. I didn't know if you had seen this before. There is a lot of names and information about the Cummins Family.

Chauncey Harman transfer
Hi Robert,
Realized I missed my friend's grandfather Chauncey Harman when I asked for the previous transfers. Would you be willing to transfer him when you get time? I appreciate your helping with the rest of the family.

Chauncey's # is 68230400

Thanks loads,
Holly Hanna
