|Bio and Links|
My interest in genealogy began by doing a genealogy report in Junior High. I visited a relative with an 1890 family record that my great-grandfather had written for his parents. With my relative's permission, I photocopied the record from cover to cover, which was fortunate, because the original record was lost many years ago. But I was hooked and I've spent much of my life doing family history research. Had some great trips with my parents seeking graves, court records, etc. My father was most enthusiastic and, as a lawyer, knew all the ins and outs of probate and other records. He was a great help. My lines include: Driscoll, Maloney, Kane (Cain), Schlappi, McQuilling (-in) (-en), Zimmerman, Mills, Sumner, Hulbert, Rhea, Hart. I've written a detailed timeline book over 200 pages of John McQuilling and wife Mary Magdalena and Jacob and Mary Zimmerman, all of Somerset Co, PA and their descendants, poured over microfilms of every court record, land record, etc. Those two families had many members who migrated west together with my family and it was very helpful in keeping them all separate from neighboring families with duplicate names. Also very helpful were the occasional biographical sketches of various descendants, giving family background. I'm from Los Angeles, California and moved to Salt Lake City in 1992, in order to have access to the family history library here.|

|Becky & Steve||Photo request|
I see you have one or more photo requests for Resurrection Cemetery, Mendota Heights, Dakota County, MN. It is a very large cemetery. If you could contact cemetery staff and obtain grave location(s), that would help immensely.
I want to collect photo requests from several more people and then I will hope to fulfill them all on one trip. Thanks

You could do it... and if you're interested, you can also ask her if she'd be willing to transfer management of this memorial over to you.

|Shirley Hoard||RE: Grant and Thornton photos|
You are very welcome. Yes the Thornton family was a ways away. There is a lot more of the cemetery that I didn't walk through yet. I may find more yet.
|Shirley Hoard||Grant family plot Washington Cem.|
Hi again Linda, I also made it to the Grant family plot. I added Henry. I think that Jane (Mother) is Emma but don't want to add her until I'm sure. The others in the plot are Charles 1869-1929/Kenneth L 1914-1915/a double marker: Katherine 1876-1947 and George 1867-1960 and a small one that's hard to read that might be Ana Sept 1872-Jan 1881.
|Shirley Hoard||Emma Thornton in Washington Cem.|
Hi Linda, I went to the Washington Cemetery in Sanilac County, Michigan today and covered 3 small sections. I found a few Thornton's. I know you wanted a picture of Emma's marker. I did find an E. G. Thornton Mother but the dates are 1864-1933 she is with N. H. Thornton Father 1851-1910. Could this be Emma?
|Terry Goodwin||RE: Humphrey / Bidwell photos|
You are quite welcome, it's my pleasure.
|Peter Joseph ("PJ") Braun||oops... continuation of partial message|
Cynthy P. May is buried in Section one of Sunset Lane Cemetery... but next to her second husband, Lester. If you want the specific grave site locator I can get it for you, just let me know and I can get it for you.
|Peter Joseph ("PJ") Braun||location of Cynthy P. May|
I made it out to the cemetery today on our way to our "getaway" property near the ocean in Grays Harbor County, WA.
|Peter Joseph ("PJ") Braun||RE: Harold William Horton photo|
I suspect that I'll be in the area in the near future, so I can check for you.
There are a lot of MAY grave-markers in Section 1 of Sunset Lane. I was walking by a bunch of them when my "Child Bride" (of 44 years) signaled that she found Harold's marker... a fair distance away.
