Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began with an 8th grade genealogy report. A nearby relative had an elaborate 1890 family record book, written by my great-grandfather for his parents, which I photocopied from cover to cover. This was fortunate, because the original record was lost many years ago. That hooked me, and I've spent most of my adult life doing family history research. Had some great trips with my parents seeking graves, court records, etc. My father was most enthusiastic and helpful and, as a lawyer, knew all the ins and outs of probate and other records. My lines include: Driscoll, Maloney, Kane (Cain), Schlappi, McQuilling (-in) (-en), Zimmerman, Mills, Sumner, Hulbert, Rhea, Hart. I've written a detailed timeline 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.

Stone Seeker
Just wanted to let you know that I added photos to some of your memorials at Butler Cemetery, Pendleton, KY.

Susan Hartzel stone
I spent quite a bit of time at this cemetery looking for Hartzel markers. Of the readable stones, I struck out. There are, however, many sandstone markers obliterated by weather. It's a cozy little cemetery, mowed and easy to walk through, except the edges with the thickets. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

RE: Boschen photos
I saw that Joy claimed your photo requests. She is excellent and if anyone can find them she can, as she knows that cemetery better than I. I dodged sprinklers the whole time and might have missed them.

RE: Boschen photos
The photos are uploaded to the memorials. The reason I got the shot of the plot map is because only one of them had a headstone. The other headstones are no longer there. Those were supposed to be temporary markers, but last a very long time. I'm very glad it helps you get a good idea of where they are located in reference to this stone.

Marion Sullivan
Hi I looked for her grave and found the headstone that actually was engraved with the plot marker for Marion, but it was a family headstone "McCloskey." Does this sound like any family she might be buried with? There were no names on it. There was a Sullivan headstone two away but it would not be where she is listed. Just making sure before I post a picture.

Robert Malone
RE: Logsdon photos
Photo for Robert has been added. These situations almost require a third hand (or a second person) to hold back the plant growth while the picture is being taken.

Charles Warner, Ladoga Cem.
We located a Charles Warner with the dates of 1912-2001. Wondered if this could be the same one you are requesting
