|Bio and Links|
|I have created a few memorials for a family members or someone I have known. I also try and provide information and links to existing memorials that others have created for members of my family or associated families. A number of contributors I have sent information to have voluntarily transferred memorials to me, which I appreciate greatly. I honor the people of the past and the opportunity I have to share some of their history and happenings through Find a Grave. I have worked on my own family history off and on for a couple of years. I am continuing to create and link as many family members that I can, as it is important to me that they are remembered.|

You're very welcome. Family should take care of family! Welcome to Find A Grave!
|Gladys Turner Dinkeloo||RE: Thank you|
Sorry it took me so long but I was out of town for several weeks. I was happy to do it for you.
|Michelle||RE: Clarence E. Watson|
Thanks for the message, and for posting the photo of Donald. I recognized him immediately; his brother Reva looked just like him.
I'm related to Clarence through Donald and Reva's brother Melville E. "Page" Watson; he died in 1996. They had another brother, Phil, who died last year, and a sister, Beulah, who died in 1982.
Page had two children (including my father); Phil had three; Reva had two; and Beulah had four, I believe. We have a family reunion every year; if you're ever in Indiana in January, you're welcome to join us!
If you're interested, I can send you an invitation to my Ancestry.com page (I'll need your e-mail address), and you can copy down all the information you want. (Although I have a lot of blanks to fill in for my grandfather's siblings' families.)
You might enjoy this, which my grandfather wrote in 1934:
Dad worked hard and long as a hardware salesman for 16 years. He was jovial, witty, quite stout and after following a binder around a wheat field once or twice, he could and did fix the most contrary binder in the county. In 1934 his farmer friends elected him County Sheriff on the Democratic ticket, and re-elected him again two years later by a greater majority than before, although the Brady Gang had beaten him into unconsciousness and escaped from the antiquated jail only one month before election. My mother died in 1937 of tuberculosis after a courageous fight of some 12 years. My father remarried, but never regained his health after leaving public office; was forced to give up farming, and died of heart disease in August 1942.
Please keep in touch, and feel free to ask anything.
