Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, family history has been very important to me all my life. I wrote my first life history when I was 12!

When I was a kid, our church had a project of canvassing cemeteries. It would be a Sunday afternoon project, one reading off the information and the other writing it and reading it back. Mom knew some of the old hidden away graveyards, and we went to them. After I married, I took her with me again, and, in the days before MapQuest, I drew maps to the graveyards!

My father and mother was working on genealogy in 1940s and 1950s. Mom would drive the old blue truck around Perry, Madison and St. Francois Counties in Missouri. She loved learning about family and would say that she felt like she "knew" these people. Her initial notes were from the 1930s. She also filled seven notebooks with written histories of the branches of the family as she remembered them.

Now that is about her, but it is the heritage she left to me. I typed the stories and continued with research which she and Daddy started. During my work, I have tried "to make a correct record." I hope to succeed in that in some degree by documentation of information I find. Please let me know where you find that I'm wrong. Thanks.

I love and appreciate what the computer has added to this search and documentation work called genealogy!

Elizabeth Frances Hill

I see that you created several memorial pages for Hill family members in the Woodlawn (formerly Oak Lawn) Cemetery in Missouri. Wanted to let you know that I just added "Elizabeth Hill" to this cemetery

While looking for several of my Hill family members in Tennessee, I stumbled across a death certificate for Elizabeth Frances Hill who passed away in Elizabethton (outside Johnson City) Tennessee

Although I am not related to this person, the death certificate shows that she was buried in Oak Lawn, but wanted to let you know just in case she is one of "yours". I also added her DC to the Memorial page

Hi - Thanks for the info about Alpha May Small Aronson
Would you happen to know anything about her Spouse - John Aronson. He is from Sweden and was born 1869. He is the brother of my Great grandmother Augusat. I am trying to find out if this JOhn is the one I am looking for. Thank you, Lisa

RE: Is
Hi Jennie,
I am guessing that she did indeed mean Dock, as he was called as an adult. As a child they called him RD or Artie, as some census takers believed it to be. I can find no record or family recollection of what the R stood for. His daughter-in-law (still living at 97) says they never knew either. As far as she knew Dock was his only name. So I'm guessing Artie and Arches may mean the same person. That's all their children. Thanks for sharing an interesting bit of the letter...loved it!
