Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research since 2001. I love the challenges and the excitement of knocking down those brick walls. I want to thank all of the volunteers who do such a great job with fulfilling the photo requests. It makes such a difference to have photos to go along with the memorials.

In Dec 2012 I become a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, which has been a goal of mine for many years.

NOTE: has strict rules about not copying other peoples photos as they are copyrighted material. With this in mind, I would appreciate it if you don't copy the photos I have posted without my permission. I have discovered some people have done this and then posted the photos to trees on without even bothering to source where the photos came from. This is discourteous at best. If you are going to copy photos without my permission, at least be honorable enough to say where you found them. The same goes for any other info you copy from my memorials such as bios and obituaries. Just say where you found the info so others can be guided to this site.

Some of my ancestor lines are: Turnidge, Decker, Peters, Berberich, Claymon, Eden, Classen, Wirth, Irwin, Pennington, Terrell, Crowley, Fletcher, Connell, Atkinson, Glover, Curd, Vorce, Clarke, Russell, Letman, Whitton, Nutting, Lea, Letman, Boyce, Baker, Douglas, Rhea, Perkins and Griffith.

Anna M. Peter edit suggestions
I have revised my edit suggestion to add her birthplace as well. I went back to the Wabash Co. courthouse to verify my info. In birth records, (Bk 1 Pg 97) I find a female child was born to Lawrence and Sarah Peter on 10/5/1881. In death records, (Bk 1 Pg 46) I find Anna M. Peter died from pneumonia. She was age 2 month and 22 days, the daughter of Lawrence and Sarah Peter. Burial is listed as "Catholic Cemetery" which at that time the eastern part of Sand Hill was Catholic.

RE: your Austin genealogy
Michelle - thank you so much for contacting me about the Austin family. I have been away from researching but am trying to get back to it. I would be interested in any information that you can share about the Austins. Look forward to hearing from you. Bobbie

I need to know if your father was Edward Fleming Shreve. I am working with a natural gas company in West Virginia that had Edward Shreve, Virgil Shreve and Evelyn Shreve from WV and possibly OK.
My phone number is 304-623-4184

RE: William Oltman
I will pass the word along, but August isn't into the whole computer/internet thing. However, one of his brothers is into computers and family history, so I will attempt to make your offer known to him.

On an entirely different note, I have submitted several thousand edit requests and you are only the second person to ask for sources. Due diligence, I like it.

Your work on Find-A-Grave is very much appreciated.

Thank you, Steve

RE: William Oltman
Hi Michelle,

All three of William's sons are alive and one of them (August) is my next-door neighbor. He was my source.

Cheers! Steve
