Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Brian B. Shemwell I am a researcher from Boise, Idaho. I have been doing my family genealogy since Sept. 2008. Any photo that I have added is not to be taken without my permission. This is because some of them are not my photos, and I have permission from others to put them here and only here.
I do also go to local antique shops and find photo's with names of the people in the photo, I do try my hardest to locate where the photo belongs and find their home. If you come across a photo that I have posted on a memorial and I have no relation, please know I am looking for a home for photo and please message me.

Please visit the memorials of the people that mean most to me.

A few things
Hello there. I read your bio and noticed that you also go to antique shops to find photos with names of them in an effort to reunite them with family members. Last year I successfully did this with over a couple dozen photos. By the way, I sponsored your niece, Grace's, memorial on here. Take care.

Memorial 13624878 - Emory Rands Sandy
Just want to give you some updated information for this person. I see parents of this person are linked as Charles SANDY and Mary BROWN, which is incorrect. Emory RANDS (Sandy) is the son of Frank D. RANDS, born 2 Sep 1888 South Dakota, Died 29 January 1920 Fruitland, Payette, ID and Bernice PATTON, born 1895 Paris, TX, died (as Mrs. Ernest C. KYLE) 30 May 1971 in Portland, OR. (I am related to Bernice PATTON)

Emory RANDS and his sister Faye RANDS went to live with the SANDY family after 1920, but were not legally adopted by them.

Here is the link to Emoryís death certificate. Mrs. Sandy was the informant on that certificate, and
gives Emoryís correct surname and parentage.

Frank RANDS died in January 1920 leaving wife Bernice with 6 small children ages 1 to 6. Bernice remarried to John WILLS in May of that same year. Donít know what happened to this family, as they disappear for awhile; Bernice then shows up in Portland, Oregon by 1940 as Mrs. Ernest C. KYLE. She died there in June 1971, her last surviving children at that time were Mrs. Faye Creason and Elmer Brown.

Faye RANDS SANDY is Emoryís sister, also a child of Frank RANDS and Bernice PATTON. Faye's twin Fern RANDS died 12 Nov 1921 and is buried in Idaho. Havenít found all their siblings, but Elmer RANDS boarded with the Saylor J. BROWN family in Idaho and eventually took on their surname. Happy Genealogy Hunting!

I just completed your requested edits for Hazel. Is she a relative of yours? I am happy to transfer her memorial into your care if you would like to manage it. She is no relation to me.
