Bio and Links
Bio Photo I would not have been able to submit the number of family members that I have without the help of my dear sister, Rose Buss, and my dear friend, Karl "It's Alive!" Whittington.

This site is fantastic! I felt cheated for a long time because my parents wanted their ashes scattered, which left me with no formal place to leave flowers. Now, not only me, but their friends and other family members across the country can visit and leave flowers.

My message to others is that you should find out all you can about your family. It's their legacy to you. In turn, you should let your children and grandchildren know all there is to know about your family, as well. It is your legacy to them.

Family grudges, bad feelings, and unforgiven arguments should not prevent future generations from learning about their family. A couple or three generations from now, any sour grapes will be meaningless, but ancestral heritage lives forever.

I am looking for information on a James Stockdale, born in Nov 1834 Ireland, married twice Sarah Libby and Elizabeth Sharpe.

I have him in Hampton Ward, Franklin Iowa at the age of 72, I have his wife Elizabeth in 1930 at the age of 76, in Hampton, Franklin, Iowa. To the union were born William Irwin Stockdale, Jesse Edward Stockdale, Lewis Stockdale, James Joseph Stockdale, Howard Stockdale and Susan Elizabeth Stockdale.

Wondering if you are possible link to them. Erlene

With the holidays upon us, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and all of your wonderful family a most Happy Holiday Season. Please reflect on our veterans who are with us and who have passed. Though we live in difficult times the United States is still the most wonderful nation on earth to live in, thanks to those who fought to protect us.

RE: Happy Easter
Isn't it most comforting to know that loved ones are always as close as the beat of your heart though. Fond memories and a little smile sent to them is a wonderful feeling.

Hi Laura
I read your memorials and live the in Orlando FL area. My dad was a RE Investor and I know all the areas where your relatives in FL are very well.

You certainly are a good writer too.

Oh, I tried to email you instead of leaving a Public Message but it didn't work! Susan
