Bio Photo I have lived all over the world and currently reside in Delaware with my two sons, a dog, and a husband who is a retired disabled veteran.

I'm researching the families of PENNISTON (from England), HUNTINGTON (England), GEISSBUHLER (Switzerland), WHITE (England/Virginia), MARTIN (Kentucky), SPARROW (Kentucky), LOCHER (Switzerland), KUMMER (Germany), BRINIGAR (Germany) and MOODY (?).

RE: Prisks
Hi, Kathy. I think you're referring to Catherine Prisk (b. 1847)? If so, Catherine's older brother, Samuel Prisk (1828-1877), is my maternal great-great grandfather, which would indeed make us cousins.

How in the world did you figure that out from Find a Grave?

I have the Prisk family tree on Do you belong to that?

Your cousin,

Pennistone/Scott Family
Hi Kathy,

My family connects to the John Scott/ Elizabeth Pennistone family found in the old Argyle Wisconsin Cemetery. Would love to compare notes. Would you mind dropping a line at:

I tried using your e-mail address and it wouldn't go through.

Thank you so much,

Best regards,

RE: Jim and Ray Penniston Magna, UT
The death certificates are not posted so I sent a request for them to be posted. On the LDS site it lists mother as Willie Ruth Dearing (1912-) and Father Paul penniston (-). When I see the death certificates I will contact you again.

RE: Fayette Cem Mary Penniston
She was already linked to her husband. I made the changes. If you use the EDIT button in the top right-hand corner, it makes it much easier.

RE: Mary Angeline (Eaton) Penniston
Do you have Mary's memorial #? Or what cemetery she's in?

Hi Kathy,

I made all the changes you asked for. Would you like me to transfer management? I am not related to them.

RE: Moved to Grant Co
Thanks Kathy. I just wish Find A Grave would get rid of the Blockhouse Cemetery in Lafayette Co. I have asked them twice with no luck. Oh well, I just tell people as I see it on Lafayette Co. Only think that I know what to do.

Block House Cemetery
Hi Kathy,

I'm working with the Gen Soc here to ID and map all cemeteries in Lafayette County. Block House is not on our list and I'm wondering if you can tell me where it's located. Want to make sure we don't leave any out!
