Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in genealogy when I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Ohio. Since then it has become a large part of my life. I have traveled to Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as well as Michigan looking for documents to complete my data. And I love to hear stories about my family. It is a joy to share what I have and to receive what others have. Puzzles are a passion with me and genealogy certainly is a puzzle with a lot of missing pieces that need to be found.

Emory James Ensign
I'm confused...I thought Emory (Find A Grave Memorial# 85962015) was the first child of James Ashley Ensign and Euphemia Rose Michelson. Was James married twice?

This is a duplicate memorial for Ally Orin Ensign. You created another one (Find A Grave Memorial# 143955031) as well. Just thought you might want to know.

RE: adding parents
Hopefully I made the correct changes. I found the correct memorial number for Minerva and changed her to Emery's mother. The number you gave me was for a `Boggs' :)

RE: another child for James A. Ensign
I can't add that information. You need to contact the person who entered the original information. Janet

RE: Mary Jane Baxter
Hi Dolores,

I don't understand your question. Is there a memorial number on Find A Grave for Mary Jane? If so, then yes you cold request a photo be taken of that plot to see what is there.

Doloras, nice to hear from you again, been a long time, hope your doing well.
About Margaret, what cemetery is she in and what did you need me to do about marriage information. If you are related I'd be happy to transfer to you. Sharon
