Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in Family History since I was 16. Just started going to cemetarys this past year and taking pictures of gravestones and finding out as much information I can about relatives on both my husbands and my side of the family. Love to meet new relations. At this time don't have much time to go cemetary hoping as my husband calls it. The lines I am mainly researching are: Bailey, Thomason, Williams, Elsie (Elsey or Elza), Nimmesheim, Kelsey, Smudski, Sullivan, Hotz, James & Riley. There are more but I try to concentrate on just a few for now.
I only have relatives listed , so I will not be transfering anyone. Will gladly correspond with other family members to make sure all information is correct to the best of my knowledge. I have some pictures to a lot of pictures depending on which relative we are researching, will gladly share any that I have, please give me credit for ones that are truly mine and I will do my outward best to give the same curtsey . I have scanned a great portion of what I have, still slowly working on the rest. Would hope that anyone who has pictures would share with me also. I work a full time midnight shift job, so I apologize if it takes me a bit to get back with someone who has tried to contact me.

Albert Bailey
Hi Denise,

You messaged me about Albert Bailey. I'm guessing you mean Albert Ernest Bailey, son of William Bailey and Clarissa Shotwell? He was my 3rd Great-Grandfather, but I'm afraid I don't have a whole lot of information on him. I have that his birth date was 5 Jun 1857, and that he was married to Susan Lavina Smith. I only have one child listed for them (my 2nd Great-Grandmother) Grace Martha Bailey. I wish I had more information, but I could see if my grandmother knows anything.

Martha Elsey
Transfer complete. I'm sorry I do not know if her husband is buried next to her. I made the memorial using a cemetery list.

RE: Grace Elsey
Also not sure about that being the right James Edward Elsey being buried in New Discovery Cemetery. It says his year of death was in 1924. So this may be the wrong person bc he had my dad in 1939 and I also found him on a 1940 Census. He was been VERY hard to track. I keep hitting dead ends with him.

Hi Denise!
Yes she was married to Thomas then James Edward Elsey. I can't locate a burial for her either. I just ordered her death certificate last night so hopefully they'll be able to find it & send it to me.

Is the email address on your profile valid? ( so I can send you some pics! :)
