Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the oldest of 5 siblings & I was born in Chico, California to Betty Pierce Horn & Lester E. Horn on what my mom says what the hottest day of the year.

I have been interested in genealogy research & building my family tree as a hobby for most of my adult life. I became interested when my grandma Opal Burns Horn gave me a rather large book about the Burns family in 1973. She also sent a 2nd cousin to see me at my workplace one sunny afternoon and surprised me with another book; The Seymour Family which are my paternal grandfather's ancestors. What a treasure both of these books are to me! They both are fascinating, with names, dates (facts) as well as many first & 2nd hand stories about life in Pioneer & Early American Times.

I also have the pleasure of working on the family tree project with my sister Karen and she helps me with the research and is a contributor to the family tree at

Now we are trying to find our ancestors burial sites and get them listed at findagrave and include pictures whenever we can, as well as send requests for photos of gravesites that are sometimes 3000 miles away from our homes.

We are both happy to return the favor whenever possible.

Good luck to all and thanks to all for your hard work and dedication to this web site and your family ancestry research.

RE: Elijah Carter
Hi Ruth - So good to hear from you. Will look for further word when you return. I need to look at my family tree and figure out exactly what kind of cousins we are. Thanks, Juanita

Carters in IOOF Cem Charleston
Hi Ruth - I sent you a message yesterday about my g-g-grandfather's grave in IOOF Cemetery in Charleston. His name is Elijah K. Carter. Is it possible for you to transfer management of this to me? Thanks, Juanita Allen

Elijah Carter's tombstone
Hi Ruth - Was just looking at your entry for IOOF Cemetery for my great-grandfather Elijah Carter. Are you kin to him? We reset his stone a few years ago as it was tilted. Thanks, Juanita

You are welcome.
Would you like his management transferred to you?

RE: Edmondson
You are quite welcome. I am confused though, I don't think I have posted any photos or memorials for Edmondsons in PA. As far as I know all of my postings have been for Edmondsons in Knox County,TN. Did you mean TN and not PA ?

Edmondson headstones
I took your photo requests of Edmondsons at Greenlawn today. I also took a photo of headstone of Ruth Edmondson next to Fitzhugh. I did not find her in Find A Grave but if she is related and you want to add her I will place pic. I will keep it until I head. Linda
