Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired teacher living in eastern Iowa who has become the "keeper of the stories" for my large extended family. While my husband and I hail from Illinois, we have the beautiful midwest very covered with "recent" (1800 to present)ancestors. I love the thrill of the hunt, the excitement of discovery and the overall joy of gathering, creating and keeping these histories here.
My family consists of the following families from the past century: Drennan, Weller, Trowbridge, Goldman, Wilson, Adams, Deck, Potter, Call, Hollenbeck,Bechtel, Keehn, Hawkins.
My husband's links in the past century are: Bader, Alexander, McAndrew, Hostetter, Reinhardt, Glenn, Goodwin, Pugh, Bresnan, Reilly, O'brien, Harrison, Darr.

It is so amazing to see all the volunteer work that goes into this site. Thank you to all who have made it what it is and I hope the generosity and dedication continue to inspire others along the way. I will do what I can to help the kind friends here with their research.

Any memorials that I have that are not family, I will give - just ask. Any of my pictures that are on the memorial pages are yours to use.

Light, love and blessings to you and yours.

Is the maiden name for both Elizabeth Bensman and Elizabeth Brucker Dunschen. Are they cousins? I am confused because both are named Elizabeth and you say both have the same maiden name. Please let me know. Thanks.

RE: Wilson, Craigmile
I have added numerous Wilson and a couple of Craigmiles today in the Reading Farnhamville and Rosehill Rockwell City Cemeteries in Calhoun Co, IA. I still need to make some family connections but thought I would make you aware if you were looking for anyone else. I realize they may not all be your line, but just in case.

Thank you so much for the great pictures. I have been looking for Vollie for quite a while. Thank you for finding her. She was the wife of my 3d great grand uncle. There are quite a few Butlers in that cemetery, I guess I'm related to most of them.
