I have been interested in Genealogy all my life. I had a grandmother McDonald who loved to tell stories, and I really loved to hear them I got serious about family History in 1969 when we moved from CA back home to KS and I could visit with some of the great aunts & Uncles. |
I had a Bonesbuddy who loved to travel with me. We have been from coast to coast tracking bones...Now it seems everything is on computer however I still love to get out and go to libraries, court house's and cemeteries. Now my Bonesbuddy is on Find a grave I shall always miss her. My daughter Julee is also on find a grave, this way I can visit any time day or night.
I am enjoying working with find a grave. I had three children, four grandchildren and Six great grands. I love every one of them and hope some decide to carry on with the genealogy.
If you find mistakes please let me know via Edit.
After all I am only human and fast becoming an OLD Human.

I knew the Criss family. I've added Terry's parents to her memorial via the edit function.
I noticed that the obit spells her middle name 'Lea' and the name you used is 'Lee'.
I don't know which is correct; maybe you knew her?
Her parents and two brothers are buried in the Louisburg cemetery. I wouldn't be surprised if she were to join them there. I'll keep an eye out for it.

I am not a "collector" as you seem to imply. If you'll look at my profile, you'll see that in the numbers. I don't "collect" anyone, I politely ask for transfers of my family members, primarily when they are lacking in details that the person who created them would have no way of knowing. It's easier than submitting multiple change requests to a stranger. I find the idea of holding onto the memorial of someone you have no knowledge of far more of a "collecting" mentality than graciously allowing their family member to maintain and update them. Please reconsider my request, thank you.
|Martha Manteuffel||Frances Hatten|
I wasn't thinking earlier. When you have a moment please transfer Frances Hatten, wife of Jacob Hatten. My # is 48640811. Thank you.MM
|Martha Manteuffel||RE: Jacob Hatten grave|
Thank you, June!
|Martha Manteuffel||Jacob Hatten grave|
Please change the death to March 12, 1840. Jacob was my great grandfather and if you like you can switch his grave to me. My # is: 48640811. Thank you.

We are related, but distantly. I'm descended from Jacob & Ivey Rosanna's third son David; they are my 4x great grandparents. It was quite a discovery to learn when the Hamp book came out that we lived only 10 miles from the original homestead in northwestern Ohio. We visited their graves in Ai, Ohio, which is just across the road from their homestead. There is a brick house on that site, but it was built after the Hamps had left the area.
Definitely check the Hamp hunters site. You should be able to get lots of info from it.
June thank you for the information. I somehow missed the St. Joseph entry sign. Thank you very much Wonderer

Hi June, Have you looked at the book "The Roots and Branches of Jacob Hamp?" (emigrated to northwestern Ohio in the 1820's, originally from Germany) Also check out the online Hamp hunters, derived from the book. Robert Hamp, the author, is my great-uncle. The main contact for the hunters is listed as Patricia Hamp - she worked with Robert to update the book a few years ago and is very knowledgeable about the family history and connections.
I don't believe that I'm directly related to a Rebecca Hamp, but there is quite an extended family from Jacob Hamp's sons - 5 or 6 I think, who then each had many children. My great- grandfather, Michael Ernest Hamp, was one of 8 children.
Good Luck & keep me posted,

That response for Aura Viola Stanton is very much appreciated. I simply LOVE family stories, unfortunately this is basically the only one I have out of our large family. Thanks again!
