Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been actively involved in genealogy for the last 20 years, and do research for my family and friends. Interested in contacting family members of the following families: Ward, Twitchell, Brookins, Kouns, Copsey, McKibben, Neaveill, Walter, Faber, Eschmann, Speed, Maunder, Rakers, Weisenfeld, Hale, Spencer and Lybyer.
I only maintain memorials for persons related to me or my family members, but I am always willing to consider transfers to family members who are more closely related.
If you have corrections or additional information please contact me. Of course, if you are related and want to share genealogy information or just chat, that's great too!

Thank you for the information concerning this child. I will gather all of it together and amend my original entry.
Thanks again,

Hello Shirley. I am Mackenzie Mackling. My Grandmother was Sharon (Brookins) Fasano, and my Great-Grandfather was Frank Brookins. Thank you so much for uploading all this genealogical information, as it tells me more of my own family history. Much thanks!

James Dewight Craig
Thank you Shirley, a slip of the finger and the wrong era! Corrected, Dewight is my first cousin and I look at his memorial all the time but hadn't noticed. :(

Hi Shirley,

I guess you have a connection to Floyd, so here's his funeral record, which includes a long obituary:

I am a Rakers descendant. My dad was Bernard Raker Jr., my grandpa was Bernard Rakers Sr., my great grandfather was Henry Rakers Sr and Maria Rakers is my great great grandmother. How are you related to the Rakers and where did you find the picture of Maria Rakers?

RE: Abraham Kouns
How are we related?

Well, if you are a descendant of Abraham Rice Kouns, he was my 1st Cousin 4x removed on my Kouns family side.

His father (Abraham Kouns) was a brother to my 3rd Great-Grandfather Christian Kouns. That makes him my 4x Great Uncle.

Their father being John L. Kouns, my (and yours) 4x Great Grandfather (4x for me).

Thanks for keeping these pages up! Let me know if I can ever help with your research.

Good morning Shirley.

I am Francis' eldest daughter and I have been researching our genealogy. I was told as a child that we have Cherokee blood, but I have since learned that isn't true. I have been looking for any information about my dad.

I know that he was born in Illinos, but have been unable to find a birth certificate. Any information you have would be of great value to me.

Thank you!
