Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was 10 when I first worked with my mother on Genealogy. Being the first to live over 1500 miles from our family roots, finding information was hard before the internet. I remember combing the hills and libraries in Ohio and West Virginia performing field work (by far my favorite part).

In recent years, I have been able to make significant progress on my family tree and make some interesting family discoveries. One of my best tools has been "". Since it has been so useful to me, I figured it was time for me to give back. Hopefully, I can provide information to some fellow searchers.

I live in Colorado Springs, CO, but travel all around the state for my second hobby (mountain climbing). If you have a request and can provide some information, please feel free to contact me and I will see what I can do.

Stella Bissonnette hidden marker
Great catch on the marker! Thank you so much. (Think of me the next time you go by La Bagette! I sooo miss their onion soup.)

Your photo request Eber Homan
I may be able to get over to Preble County this week to try to get a picture of his headstone, but I'm not going to claim it because I'm not sure yet. So why am I telling you this?? I don't know! :)

RE: Picture - Mary Pine
You are welcome for the photo. I did not see your message about husband A.T. until after I got home. We started getting snow unexpectedly and had to leave early. When I go back I'll check for A.T.

RE: Tipcup Cemetery Request
Hi David....I had been up there all last week and took photos of 99 percent of the tombstones, so I would have them on hand when a request came through, or to post them on the "findagrave" site. Surprisingly, there was already one on Landon Keyes memorial site, it's on page 2 of the photos added. Evidently, somebody had the stone made and placed it and took a photo for somebody else????? The stone is in a cardboard box like they ordered it or mailed it to somebody. Anyway, whoever placed the stone took a photo and put it on find a grave, so one is not needed. Did you take other tombstone photos?

Amos Law-Reedy Cemetery
You are welcome for the picture of the stone, but that Picture was taken in the 1980's I believe. I took it because his daughter married a Flesher. I haven't been back to that Cemetery since. I have no plans on going back there at this time, but you never know. If I can help you with any information I would be glad to do so. Ihave been working on my geneology since 1979 myself and am still finding information. If you want I would transfer Amos Law's memorial to you if you would like.
