Bio and Links
Hello, Fellow Researchers! I live in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. Have been doing genealogy for about 40 years. Stumbled on my Great-Great-Grandfather's bible with the tree all the way back to 1794 and I was hooked. What a wonderful journey!

My family roots are Westlake and Hartshorn (Union County, Ohio), Hemphill and Kirkland (Logan County, Ohio) and the Ferrell & Droddy, Casto and Heck families (Jackson and Roane counties in West Virginia). Also, I'm working on my husband's side of the family, which is Denu, Sieler, Riehle, Gehlhausen and Ferry of Dubois and Adams counties in Indiana. Have worked extensively on other families related to both of
these families.

Would love to help anyone out with info I have.

Happy Digging!

Telitha Casto
Are you aware that a duplicate memorial has been added for your Telitha Casto #47118515?
Sure makes research difficult when people take it upon themselves to duplicate legitimate memorials.

RE: Checked your suggestion
Hi, Cathy! As far as I know my husband isn't related to the Shirks or the Thompsons. Dave is the one with all the Union County ancestors. Mine all came between 1870 & 1890 and settled in Nebraska and Colorado. Scott and I became acquainted several years ago and he has since helped us photograph Price and Oakdale cemeteries. I consider him a friend, though he could as easily be thought of as one more grandson. ;-)

Henry Erikson
I have a picture of Henry and Riva Erikson at home.
I will hunt for it today and try to attach it to their memorials.
