Bio and Links
When I was a little girl my Mother, Grandmothers & Great Aunts would take me with them to the grave yard to place flowers on family grave sites. We would go to the cemetery on birthdays and Memorial Day. It was on those trips I began learning my family history. I also realized that those trips to the cemetery keep our ancestors memories alive. I tell those same stories to my granddaughter Chloe. I hope one day she will pass our family stories onto her children and by that time there will be a few more stories to tell.

I was born in Bloomington Indiana and was raised in a the small community of Ellettsville just northwest of town. My paternal grandparents are Earl & Dorothy (Cook) Sexton and my maternal grandparents are Ted & Grace (Morrison) Rhodes.

My parents were both only children. But luckily my grandparents had plenty of brothers and sisters, so I had 38 great Aunts & Uncles.

I love history and doing research for my family tree.

Hello Kathryn!
I've just started going through my family history I've loved learning and hearing stories and my family would do something we called the "Tour of death", whenever we were down in Greene county for family reunions. The Cook-Pearson family reunion was always held in Bloomfield the 1st Sunday in October.

I loved going there and doing that tour. My family branch all moved to Indianapolis my grandpa was Van Cook my grandmother was Rose Ida Cook. I am Lawrence Cook's youngest daughter (there are 5 of us), and I just wanted to say Hello, and thank you for maintaining our mutual relative's grave site.

I hope to speak to you soon, and hear all your stories if you'll share them with me?

My warmest regards,

Leslie Caverson

I would really like to do some research with you on Elizabeth Drake. She is my husbands 2nd Great Grandmother. I have a will of hers that leaves many questions, in my research. If you are interested, please contact me at:

Hi, I transferred William Cook to you.

Your story is very similar to mine. My father's family is from the Bloomfield area.

BTW, I think I ran across a picture from there recently, of a class from a school there. May be the one I saw of a bunch of the Galloways at an earlier age. Know which one I'm talking about?

BTW, I think I saw a picture of a class from a school there way back when. Now, just to REMEMBER where I saw it in my office.

Check out the one picture Amanda Clay added - I'M in it as a little girl - the Heckler that Aunt Mag is holding, and my grandmaw Dessie is right in back of her.

Since I'm now in touch with Scotty Galloway, would you like to share more of the Galloway history and pictures with us? I'm trying to put some things together for him and his family and take back up there, along with the pictures he's loaned me.

Let me finish my mother-in-law's 90th B/D bash, Bobby's 50th class reunion, and my Mickler get-together, and I'll be all ready to go. I knew a lot of Whopper's siblings, but just didn't know at the time they were all related.

Do you happen to have anything on the Bledsoe's?

Scotty's pictures are next of my list of to-dos, and Donnie Owens shared some things with me too. Can't wait to get them all going.

I told Scotty I'd fix him up with pics and history and an album. They're really getting enthused over this.

Ever heard of "Dark Star"???????

I'm going to call a Galloway in French Lick this week and talk to him about it. Looking forward to hearing from you!
