Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in 1962, I have recently been working on our family tree. My husband and I have no children, just nieces and nephews and feel it is important for them to know their family heritage.
We have seven horses, 4 riding and 1 Belgian in foal for May 2014, 1 Spotted Draft and 1 Clydesdale. We have a carriage and occasionally, when we have time, enjoy sunday afternoon drives through our small town.
If I have added a close relative of yours, let me know if you wish to have management transferred to you! I may also be able to research records from the Toulon Genealogical Society.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE MY PHOTOS ANY WAY YOU WISH, INCLUDING POSTING TO OTHER SITES. We are all in this together, trying to discover and preserve our family history.

RE: Elizabeth Vincent Knowles
Hi there, cuz! I sure hope your husband will be feeling much better real soon. My sister-in-law had the same excruciating problem years back, and I know there was a lot of suffering involved. Thank you very much for the transfer of Elizabeth's memorial. In the coming days (hopefully within the next couple of days) I'll begin re-working it to add to and adjust her bio. I know quite a lot about Elizabeth - but will need to figure out where my info is. I was my late mother's full-time live-in caregiver during her final years (she died at age 96 two years ago), and I stored away most of my genealogy papers and document photocopies, etc., during that time, since the caregiving demands were round-the-clock and exhausting, and there was so little uninterupted time or opportunties to do other things, and most stuff still remains packed away. I do still have accessible certain easy reference highlights type things I compiled for myself many years ago, but not the bulk of the actual extensive documents, of which there are many. I'm pretty sure I have a photocopy of a handwritten letter written by your Condit ancestor to the Sussex Co., DE Register of Wills or whomever, that is included in Isaac Knowles' epic probate record. As I recall, the letter was Mr. Condit expressing concern that the estate settlement had been taking a very long time during which the heirs hadn't heard any word about when their shares would be coming, and was inquiring if there had been any progress, he explaining that he and his wife and family live in I believe Illinois. I believe there are handwritten similar letters also in the probate record from this or that other heir or heir. I'll definitely check for your Condit ancestor's letter and scan and e-mail it to you, once I have successfully located it. Please add my e-mail address to your address book, so that if (and no doubt when) I send you anything, it'll readily go to your mail in-box. My e-mail address is . I'll try to see if I can find the letter in question sometime during the next few days. Best regards, Dave

RE: Elizabeth Vincent Knowles
Hi, Ellie. It's general accepted consensus that Elizabeth was my 3x great-grandmother. Nice to meet another Knowles Family cousin! Best regards, Dave

Delighted to "meet" you (too)!
Have been involved with since age 10 (I'm 63). My master database is comprised of over 250,000 souls. My online pages, about 18,500 (close, or close collateral relatives). Am an "Editor" at Ancestry (6 LARGE databases), and a life-time contributor to the LDS. Formerly an exec with a west-coast Fortune 1000 company (Silicon Valley), I ran International. Result? I also speak/read/write 7 languages - should you run into any translation problems (notably, fluent French). Be Well.

- Charlie's youngest daughter, Emma Louise Kuechler (1910-2010) was my late mother ...died at 100 years of age.
- I have 3 daughters who are 1/2-French (35, 33, 31), and a son (16) by an American mom.

P.S. I had six (6) horses when I was living in Europe: 2x French Percheron ("KeeKee" and "Sultan"), 1x Appaloosa stallion ("Mehnir", a grand-son of the, then European grand-champion, an Appaloosa gelding named "Tennesee", an Arab gelding, which we called "Prince", an Fiordj (male colt) who wasn't yet named...

RE: William Pheamster Chambers
for your records for David Chambers Cemetery at The Pointe.

David Chambers, b. 10/22/1792 - d. 09/05/1861 Vet of war 1812; m. Sarah Meadows Chambers b.? - d. 08/05/1877 Their original two head stones still there and looks like they are too.

The tall stone (looks fairly new) is William Chambers, b. 03/24/1818, d. 11/11/1891, m. Eliza J. Grayson, b. 08/18/1818 - d. 1900. These two graves moved to Allen Creek Cemetery, Monroe County, IN. Original headstone must have been moved?

Mary Ellen b. 1848 d. 1848 infant daughter of Willam and Eliza. Original stone still there.

Original small stone with letters S C is presumed to be Sarah Cathrine Chambers 1854-1854 infant daughter of William and Eliza.

There is one more original stone that can't be read.
Thank you for your correspondence. My research was from FamilyTreeMaker and
