Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello from Wisconsin:o) I have been interested in family history and history in general all my life. In 2009 I started working diligently on the family tree for my children. I have been working with my aunt, my father's sister, as she already had alot of information on my father's side. I also found the family tree that my materal grandfather finished compiling in 1952, he had donated it to a museum in southwestern Wisconsin.

I have had very good luck with all but a couple branches, but am not giving up. It has been a joy researching and finding out about the past. I would highly recommend doing a family tree, you never know what surprises you may come across, and the unlimited friends and acquaintances you will come to know.

Yes that's him. No relationship to me. He was the first husband of my gr-gr- grandmother, Lucinda Smith Wheeler Coats. :o)

Harold and Lou Muenich
Hello again,

I had a chance to go to Prairie View Cemetery and take an updated picture for both Harold and Lou Muenich's headstone with Harold's death date now on the stone. I posted it on both their pages in case you may want that instead of the older photo without Harold's death date.

Also, I had the opportunity to speak with their nephew John. Apparently, Lou's given name was Gertrude Louise, not Louise Gertrude. She went by "Lou" and was buried as such because her mother was Gertrude. Just thought you would like to know in case you wanted to fix it just once more.

Hope this all helps!

RE: Oak Grove Cemetery
Melanie, I don't think Gale Stocks has passed away as there isn't a date for her on the stone. The entire memorial shouldn't be posted for Gale as only Clayton has passed away. I just posted the photo's to the memorial in 2010 that had already been created in 2004. I would go to the edit button on her memorial #9615558 and send a message to Alberta Daniels Withrow...she is the only one who can delete either the date or the memorial. Sorry I can't help on this one.

RE: Daniel & Eliza Sawyer
Thank you so much for responding. It is very exciting to hear from others with new pieces of the puzzle. I have not been to see Eliza and Daniel's headstone yet, but I have been to see Diana and Ruben's. I am in the process of trying to figure out what happend to Elijah's headstone. Whitley county historical society has been very helpful! Records show him with a headstone, and his name added to a George Bennett with only a date of 1866. Elijah passed in 1936. Chris...

Melanie, I was hoping you could tell me where you got the info on Eliza and Daniel taking care of Eliza's brother Elijah's children. Elijah is my 3rd great grandfather, and I am trying to gather as much genealogical info as I can. Thanks for all you do, Chris Bennett....
