Bio and Links
I have enjoyed the ancestor hunt a good many years. Since Christy is my direct line I have been trying to connect all that are in my family. Thanks to many of you other site managers, especially "Pam", "MLC", and IRISH EYES ARE SMILING who have helped the most with all those Davis co. and Wapello co., Iowa transfers I requested. I have connected 7 generations in some of the families.

I will gladly transfer anyone not of my direct lines.

Hello Karen
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you for the transfer of Thomas Jefferson Wray 60839323 to our care. You made my day!
I appreciate the time you took to make his memorial and adding the History of Davis County, Iowa.
Find A Grave is a wonderful site but only because of people like you.
Thank you.

RE: Margaret Blades Banister
Thank you so much for the very prompt reply. I never expected that, but I am grateful to you. One correction to your new text though. Note the CORRECT link for Margaret's father Luke Blades on the monument, then insert the surname Blades where appropriate making your new text read ". . .is the daughter of Luke Blades and Catherine Osborne."

Thank you again for your help. Luke and Catherine were my 5g-grandparents. :-)

Would you please remove the Catherine from her name?
She is not Catherine who married Luke Blades. They are sisters--one marrying the Hackleman and the other sister marrying the Blades. That has made Find A Grave merge the children by the two sisters also. Catherine is my ancestor and married Luke Blades. Elijah Hackleman has written several scrapbooks about his grandmother Mary Ann Osborn Hackleman's people and other surnames that connected to them---such as Blades, Tyner, and Saylors/Sailors. Thanks for correcting this.

I noticed on her memorial that someone had posted pictures of two girls. Who posted these pictures and are they truly Margaret Blades Bannister? This is Carol Jenkins that is
