I want to thank everyone that has helped me and for all the kindness, hard work and effort they have gone to making memorials on FAG. Am always worried I missed thanking someone for their work and their help, so this is THANK YOU TO ALL for the photos, linking updates and any transfers. IT IS ALL VERY APPRECIATED.
I know that I have made so many link edits and requests to updates that in my email I am not able to keep up with all of the thank yous and am truly sorry for that.

I have been researching my family tree for almost 20 yrs now. Direct line and I always seem to chase aunts, uncles, cousins and everyone I can find. It tells you a lot about the people and their life, which is the best part for me.

Some of my main family names are....
Paternal side: Abbott, Pitman, Ritchie, Wilson, Cox, Gann, Yates, Dodd, Hall, Clark, Snead, Newland, McCauley, Bledsoe, Belcher

Maternal side: Phelps, Stewart, Hassler, Jett, Banson, Pointer, Aud, Tate, Wheeler, Pratt Vandervort, Halstead, James, Reed, Hornaday, Baily, Short, Pike, Richardson, Overman

Husbands side: Shaw, Roberts, Finnel, Terhune, Wheeler, Morris

Tons more surnames from marriages of siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins. My immediate family started in Missouri from north to mid, south and east parts of the state reached into Kansas in Atchison and Miami counties just to name a few then kept growing! I have over 40,000 people in my tree that covers the whole USA and other countries, some back to the 1500 and 1600's.

Has been an exciting journey and learning experience for me and my family. I love it and wish you all the best in your journey. Thank you.

RE: Joseph M Branson and others
Jared Branson (no middle initial) born about 1754 died before June 13 1831 married Sarah Cock(e) birth and death unknown.

see the Find A Grave for Valentine Branson explaining his known marriage to East and marriage to Sarah Smith.

Sealy Beck married Valentine Branson son of Jared E Branson.

Joseph M Branson, son of Valentine and Sarah Smith was born Nov 25, 1844. His parentís reporting of his birth place as Missouri in 1850 and 1860 as well as his own reporting of his birth in 1870, 1880 and 1900 clearly shows that the informant was incorrect.

Also in 1845 Valentine and Sarah were living in Sec 19 of Worth County.

James Branson message

I am a 20+ year researcher of Bransons and Valentine Branson and his 2nd wife Sarah Smith (widow of Richmond) were my 3rd great grandparents. This book written by me correctly has the genealogy of the Bransons.

"A" Valentine Branson married Cely Beck however it was not my Valentine.

Joseph Branson was not born in Indiana. At least in the 1850 census of Gentry, MO one of his parents said MO. In the 1860 census of Allendale, Gentry, MO his mother reports he was born in MO.

Jared did not marry Sarah "Cox" ..he married Sarah Cock(e) and I was the researcher that pointed this out after decades of incorrect genealogy linking this family to Quakers in New Jersey instead of Baptists in Maryland.

Since I have worked so hard on straightening out the information of the Branson proven by DNA...if you could remove your message from my account I would appreciate it.

Wheelers, North Cemetery
I'm not able to delete the two Wheeler dups because I didn't create them. I don't know why they were transferred to me, I never asked for them and am not related to them. Can't figure it out, except that I posted a photo on them.

RE: Ethel Eunice Clark Buck
If you email your contributor number and the numbers of the memorials you want transferred to you, I will make the changes. I can't do anything until I have that information.
