Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began as a Chemical Engineer, went into Chemistry, and worked for many years as a professor at the University of New Mexico. Since 1999 my interests have been redirected from chemistry and environmental research to family history research and writing. I have authored or co-authored four histories: The Never-Failing Brook, The Glenn and Mary Imle Tapscott Family; Henry the Immigrant, The First Tapscotts of Virginia (two editions); Bier und Brot, the Wehners of Southeast Missouri; and To Praise; To Bless, To Preach, a History of the Newman Dominican Community at the University of New Mexico. A fifth book, The Tapscotts of the Wabash Valley, is being written. I manage a Tapscott Surname DNA study at FamilyTreeDNA, administer the Tapscott name message board on, and post Tapscott family history on

RE: James Tapscott, Auburn Cemetery
I got this from the Martin-King Family Tree on Since I don't know for sure, I will change the middle name to initial "B". Thanks.

RE: photos, Mt. Pleasant Cemetery
I would be happy for you to use any of the cemetery photos that I have taken. No problem at all.

RE: Cora K. Lockart
I have lots of family roots in the Effingham area and used to live there and enjoy researching that and surrounding areas.

Seeing your name, it now finally dawned on me that we also have Bolling/Tapscott DNA connections. Will contact you soon about that and maybe we can look into that a little closer.

RE: Cora K. Lockart
Very glad you found the info helpful. I also came across a couple newspaper articles regarding the circumstances of Leslie Sweet's death. I can forward these to you if you want.

RE: Cora K. Lockart
Hi Robert -

I found an obituary for Cora and she was indeed a Campbell. Her parents are also buried in Montrose Cemetery. I added the obituary to her memorial and added links to her parents and her Hargrave and Lockart husbands. Hargrave must be on the gravestone because that is the last name of her only child (Jack) who is mentioned in the obituary.

RE: Murl Everett Sweet (1893 - 1920)
I have changed the birth year. However, there is clearly (?) a 7 written on top of 23 for the actual day. As far as a middle name of Everett, I inherited that on some family research done by my mother prior to her death in 1996. She used to go to Illinois on vacation and walk the cemeteries and talk to anyone who remembered her family. That is the only documentations - such as it is - that I have.
