Bio and Links
Bio Photo After living in UT and CA for almost 10 years, I am back in AZ where I was raised. My mother's family (STAPLEY's) are long time Mesa, AZ residents. My father's family (STOFFEL's) lived in Kansas, but the STOFFEL ancestors originated in Luxembourg. Some of the other relatives of the STOFFELs include HUNT, WALTER, LOHN, HERMANN, KLEIN, DIDERICH, THEISEN.

My father has been a genealogy researcher for years. My interest was sparked in 2007 when my brother passed away and I realized how little I knew about him. It made me realize how important it is to learn people's stories while they are alive and that led to the research of ancestors.

I have also began to assist my husband's family in the research of their ancestors including the following surnames: BENNEY, BOTTS, BLOCK, DOBSON, EYTCHESON, WALKER, BUSCOMBE, and MOHR.

Grant Stapley
I will transfer this one. My grandmother is a Stapley and is an aunt of Delbert. I don't transfer family, as I said in my bio, but I will this one.

RE: Billie Dawn
I am her mother's cousin. I talked with her mother quite a bit before she died. I am also the family genealogist.

RE: Billie Dawn
Billie's mother, Mel Rae Starkey, is my cousin. She just passed away 22 Dec 2103. I am our family genealogist, so I try to keep track of all my Grandparents descendants. I'm sure you know Carla has also passed.

It's been a year since we were in touch! I haven't added anything re Botts except flowers to Alphonso & Gertrude's real graves. When I added Russ's ancestry charts to my database, I saw that some of his info was inaccurate. If you have a chart or something that you would share, I'd like to send it to Avis for her to give her grandchildren. Hope all is well. Roberta

RE: Charles H and Ida Sylvia Stinson
You are welcome, glad to help. I don't think I replied back in March(sorry I am late!) - Also added Cletus Stinson's marker photo since he was beside Charles and Ida.

Arthur and Emily Lawson
Arthur and Emily Lawson are buried in the newer part of Manchester Cemetery (the older part is across the road). There is a photo of their tombstone and links to their obituaries at the Scott County page of the Morgan Area Genealogy Society:

My friend in Shelburn said that Annie Botts, sister of Alphonso, owned a hat shop. Also, one of the Botts owned a motel in Sullivan many years ago. I'd appreciate having the info that you do. While they are not direct relatives of mine, I do share the info with Avis Botts. Sometimes, it triggers her memory of someone or something else that's useful.
