Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy researching family history/genealogy. I find it extremely interesting, love a challenge and enjoy the thrill of finding out new information...coming from a very large family, it is also very rewarding and it is my way of paying respect to those who have paved a way for me.
I grew up in and continue to live in the Southwestern corner of Ohio, near Kentucky and Indiana.
I have traced my father's family to Ostbevern, Germany.

Robert Oker
I have already emailed Pami and have heard from her. I recognize Dominique's name. I think he has info on other soldiers involved in this story in addition to Mr. Oker. I think I've got some good leads. Thank you for your help!!

Robert Oker
Hi Gail,

I am not related to Mr. Oker. He is one of several POWs I am researching. I am interested in his story. Could you email me the details at othmarsingen@bellsouth.net? Thank you.

Robert W. Oker
Hi Gail,

I saw your memorial for Robert Oker from Cincinnati. I was wondering if you knew him personally. I am researching the POW train he was on during WWII. Do you know anything about his time as a POW?

Spinning
I've posted some photos of markers for the Spinning plot in section 88 of Spring Grove. In particular, the marker for Adele Spinning (79046136) shows her maiden name as Tosso - your description on Frank Spinning's page (65777198) makes it seem as if you were unsure about that name.

Gail-Thank you so much for all of the updates! I am so sorry but I forgot to SAC for his full name. Could you please add it to the name header? It is Gustavus Adolphus Kraus. I am not related to Mr. Kraus and I promise this is my last request for him! :) Laura.

Beavan
Do you have much information on the Beaven Family? I am a Grand Daughter of Beverly Ann Bevean. Fredericks Only Daughter in his marriage prior to being widowed. All I know is Beverly died and she was rather different many , many hardships. I would like to find out more about my ancestors and kin. I am an only daughter. Of Beverly's Daughter Susan Ann , Also Beverly had a son. Daniel BEAVEN Bashor I have an Only grown son Bryce Charles Baker. I am a writer. Things come to my vivid imagination that Traces me back here. Like my son's name for example. I chose this name sub-consciously as I sit in my room in despair my entire pregnancy praying for only a son. I met my Great Grandfather once. When I was about 3 years old. Fredrick Bryce Bevean. He was in the Columbia Nursing Home then. Alone very much so. Beverly was institutionalized. More than one time. Please feel free to contact me if willing.Thank you Amanda Bashor

I have traced back to Amelia Hall from a Hall line. I was wondering if I might compare some information with you. Would Amelia be the husband of a James Edward Hall?
