Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 13th generation American - just plain American - no hyphenated nationality in front of "American"!! I did a DNA test in late 2014 and the results indicated I am 100% European with origins from England, Scotland and Ireland along with some Western and Central European [i.e. Germany] and a touch of Scandinavian.

I caught the genealogy "bug" over 14 years ago, but one of my sisters has been doing our family genealogy for over 35 years. It is addictive! and thrilling when we find information.

My sister and I research our family lines, including on our father's side from the southern states: Linn, Galloway, Laster/Lassiter/Lasiter, James, Hysaw, Caldwell, Jeansonne/Johnson, Ritter, Edelmeier, Steen, Stelly, O'Rear, and Newman. Our direct Linn line has been in America since c1772, but my other family lines connected with the Linn's were in America as early as 1635. Most of these families came from Ireland and Scotland although research is showing that the Edelmeier, Ritter, Steen and Stelly lines came from Germany settling in Louisiana as early as 1718 and by the mid 1700's (Ritter's). The majority of my dad's lines were in the American Colonies by about 1650.

On our mother's side from the northern and east coast states, we research the family lines of Beebe, Sides, Lincoln, Borden, Hickox, Upson, Starr, Plumb, Warner, Sensabaugh, Clapp, Haskins, Williams, Brigden, Train, McComb and more. Our mom's direct Beebe line has been in America since 1649, but her Starr line came in 1634. With the exception of the Sensabaugh line, the rest of these families were in America in the mid 1600's. The majority of these lines are English with the exception of Sensabaugh which came from Germany and were in America by 1800 on the east coast.

If you find a relative that I have entered or even a friend, I am more than willing to transfer management of the page to you (other than my own ancestors and relatives). Just send me an email asking for the transfer and please let me know your relationship to the person, their FAG memorial # AND your member ID # (PREFER that you use the 'Edit' button to contact me).

I think it is important to share genealogy information and am thankful to all those who have shared information with me which is why I am willing to share info with others. I try very hard to put a good description on my memorials so you can get to know the person rather than just a name.

You are also very welcome to use any pictures I post on findagrave for your personal genealogy or to post on, but please indicate where you found the picture and give credit to whoever took the picture.

RE: William Otho Steen

You are very welcome. Glad I was able to help you find your cousin.

Unfortunately there is no headstone on that grave site. The headstone belongs to the grave directly behind the Wagner grave. When I take photos I always include photos of the headstone when available.

Because his DOD was in 1937, there is no social security record showing his birth date.

Below is a list of everybody buried in that grave, hopefully this may be of some help.

First Middle Last Name Age Date of Burial

Thelma H. Bienvenu 63 02/06/1962
Peter Cribben 64 08/05/1938
Grace Cribben 78 11/08/1958
William O. Steen 72 12/26/1937
Lillian Mary Wagner 80 04/26/1961
Pearl Katie Ward 72 07/23/1973

RE: Headstone Pictures
She is buried in the old section which is on the west side of the road. Next time you are down this way let me know and I will try to pin point it for you.

It would not be a bother because my gggrandparents and other relatives are buried there and it is only about 5 miles from my house.

Thank you for letting me know about your appreciation. I often wonder if others do use the pictures,

RE: David Nelson
I looked in my old message archive and didn't see a message from him, so no, he didn't send me that information.

Steen and Stelly burials
Awesome! Now you can search the burials in the church and if they're not listed you can add them. If you do, be sure and note that the burials were confirmed with the church office. If they are there and they're mine just send me a note and I'll transfer if you like. If you don't want transfers just send me whatever text you want to add to help verify they're there. For the one that's not there, just change the burial location to unknown for now, until you find it. If you don't want any of the memorials you listed I'll be glad to add them if needed.

Awesome sleuthing!
