|Bio and Links|
I'm a genealogy dabbler, living in Eugene, Oregon, and was amazed and delighted to find so many photos of ancestral markers already in place. I also really appreciate the many volunteers who are helping to fill in the many gaps.|
I have uploaded some cemetery data from the Murray County, MN rootsweb site, which lists most of the internments in that county. You might look there for more Murray county burial information.
I'm trying to help fill in some gaps in the records of the Hatcher Family Association, so you'll see quite a few requests for Hatcher information. A large fraction of all the Hatchers in the US are more or less distant relations of mine.

|Bettye Hull||RE: Martha Watson|
In that case, do you know the family/descendants of George Smith Watson? If not, do you WANT to? If so, I can put you in touch with my contact. She lives in California.
|Bettye Hull||Martha Watson|
The Martha I was after married George Smith Watson (1854-1929) in 1882. They lived their lives in Middle Tennessee. Her name was Martha Paralee McCormick Watson. Their children were Arthur Bennett Watson (b.1880), William Oscar Watson (b.1882), and Effie Watson (1901-1942) -all in Tennessee, as far as I know.
|Bettye Hull||Martha Watson|
Do you have a coincidental name, or are you related to Martha? She was sister to my great-grandfather.
It would be great to actually find a direct descendant of some of his siblings!

Thank you for adding her maiden name to the memorial. I do like to try to find the women's maiden names. Thanks again, LAMB

Wow! Thank so much for adding all the additional information and connections.
I'm not a direct descendant to the Spitler family, only through marriage. But, thanks anyway for the offer of transfer, they should go to someone closer. Will let you know if I find more information or connections to this family.
Appreciate your help,

|Lesa Pfrommer||TWA Crash|
Just to let you know, I heard from Dave Davis and now hopefully can get the two sides together in working on the National Historic Landmark project.
Hopefully I will get things straightened out with my Almeda Evans. Still waiting to hear from one of my close contacts who supplied the photos on the memorial and whose mother was her first cousin. She had two children and from what I can glean on-line, her husband is 90 years old and still living in Tuscon.
|Lesa Pfrommer||RE: Hatcher 1956 TWA Plane Crash|
Yes, I saw the article about the ring and the living descendants. I just tried sending a copy of the e-mail to the old dda.architects address for Dave Davis that I had, in case he's interested.
|Lesa Pfrommer||Hatcher 1956 TWA Plane Crash|
How much information do you have on William Wallace Hatcher who died in the 1956 plane crash? The reason I ask is because I heard from the Grand Canyon Historical Society regarding another distant cousin of mine who also died in the crash. (Almeda Evans #63841698) Apparently they are trying to find living kin.
Here is an excerpt:
"I'm a member of the Grand Canyon Historical Society and have volunteered to assist the National Park Service in locating family members of the victims of the 1956 Grand Canyon mid-air collision between TWA and United Airlines. Grand Canyon National Park superintendent Dave Uberauga wishes to notify them that the accident site is being nominated as a National Historic Landmark and as a courtesy to those who lost relatives in the accident, Superintendent Uberauga would like to send a letter notifying them of the park's efforts to nominate the 1956 accident site and be available to answer any questions they may have."
|MO'Neal||Nora Allen Illg|
Are you related to Nora since you are maintaining this site? I am related to her sister, Jennie Allen.
