Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy for most of my life. I happened upon this website recently after returning from Kentucky on a genealogy "hunt." What a great resource!!! Surnames in my family:
Bourne, Wion, Gephart, Trissel, Iddings, Woodman, Hellard, Shaw, Sinclair, Shoup to name a few.

I take pleasure when I am able to link families on FAG. The numbers mean nothing to me except perhaps the volunteer photos taken. It's more a matter of making the person in the memorial come "alive" by adding details and connecting family. I feel the same about genealogy - a Family Tree, like FAG, is so much more than a collection of names.

Thanks so much for posting the picture on William H. Trissel's memorial. I love it when family picture of our ancestors are put out there for others family members to see and share. Again thanks so much. From your cousin Sherry

RE: Kezsiah Small Trissel, # 37200290
Hi Linda. Thank you for adding the parents to
Kezsiah Small Trissel's memorial. I am related through her daughter Sarah E. Trissel married name Baker. Sarah is my gr. grandmother on my mother's side of the family. My husband and I visit all of Trissel's graves that are close enough to where we live, at least once a year around Memorial Day. It's great to find more relatives. Find a grave is a great place to do that. Thanks again. From country girl (Sherry)

RE: Hershel and Karen Bourne
Hi Linda,
It was my honor to post a tribute for them. I know this time of year must be so hard on you and your family. Our loved ones left us a wonderful gift of memories of them so that they will only be a thought away from us. May the wonderful memories you shared with them bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart.

Merry Christmas and may the new year bring you many blessings.

RE: Clay & Ella Gebhart/Gephart
I know what you mean about the Gebhart/Gephart confusion. I was trying to find information on a Myrtle Gebhart/Gephart Slusser Phillabaum. One document has it spelled Gebhart and another one has Gephart. I am trying to locate her parents' gravestone to see how it was spelled, but haven't had any luck so far finding where they were interred.

Her father is even more confusing. One shows his first name to be Albert and another shows Alfred. It is very challenging. You have your work cut out for you. If there are any at the cemetery that you want me to take a photo of, let me know.

Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving.

re: Mariah Gephart
No, I don't know who her parents were and where she was born. I did try to look for Gepharts in that area and I didn't come up with much and only the head of the household is recognized in those early cenuses. I will check it out again. Not ready to give up yet. I would assume she was of German descent. My GGgrandfather, (Abraham) Gabriel Kilmer named his first daughter Susannah (probably after his paternal grandmother, Susannah Katterman Kilmer ) Mariah (after his Mom), that's all I've got on her, beside her marriage date. I will check with the Montgomery Records and Archives. They are great there. I had Barbara, there look up, photocopy and mail me info. (for a small fee, since I can't get there easily to look it up myself). Anyway, thanks for the info. and if you ever come across a Mariah, if you can keep me in mind, I'd appreciate it!
