Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was a little girl, my grandmother showed me a small mimeographed paperback book on our Ebling family. I was hooked!

I've been researching about 35 years. The internet has been a god-send for us researchers. You newbies can't imagine how we did it in the old days--writing scads of letters and waiting for replies, hand-writing or typing family group sheets and trees--it was very time consuming!

About 1980, my mother, her sister and her daughter, and I went to Cedar Falls, IA on my first research trip. I can't describe how excited we were seeing our ancestors on the 1860 Iowa Census!

By profession I'm a bookkeeper, so working with details is my baliwick!

Thanks for your links to the Campbell burials in Mount Hope. I made them, and then added the cemetery info from the records at the Kansas State Historical Society.

Here she is she is yours. If there is anyone else let me know I have a few. You are so right about the old days waiting for the mail hoping something good was in it.

Hi Susan,
Can you tell me what information you used to create this memorial? I submitted a request to get a photo of the grave marker and received the following: "I searched the plot he was to be buried on and he did not have a headstone." Thank you very much for your help.

RE: Fannie Snot (Shot) photo request
Hi Susan,
I sent a correction along to the Findagrave volunteer who maintains the records for Spring Grove. She communicates with the administration at Spring Grove on a regular basis. Hoping to get a correction of the name "Snot" to "Shot" on their website. Findagrave records have already been corrected. Are you also connected to the Woodruff family from this lot?
