Bio and Links
Bio Photo An interest in local history resulted in a collection of biographies and obituaries for a book I published containing names of settlers in the area who happen to be members of Western Star Lodge No. 240 AF and AM and an unpublished manuscript about officers of the city police department. This led to many treks through local and regional cemeteries which prompted my interest in geneology.
If you find errors or changes necessary in any of my entries, please feel use the edit tab on the memorial and send me the information. I will gladly answer any and all inquiries.
I am interested in family names Godwin, Heubner, Reynolds, Wittenmyer and Buckles from south and west central Indiana and Kentucky.
If you find a relative (within Find-a-Grave guides) I will gladly transfer management of any of my entries. To avoid further errors and mismatched information, however, I will promptly honor only requests through use of the edit tab on the memorial. A family member should maintain these and enter additional information.

Theresa Brown
Hi, my name is Theresa Brown and William Harvey Rush and Florence A. Keeble Rush were my great, great, grandparents. I have about 6 more children to add to there Find a Grave info. William A. was one of their sons, not the William that was married to Florence. Too many Williams and Johns back then!

Are you related to Elizabeth Godwin who married William Keeble, who would be the parents of Florence Rush?

Thank you for all your hard work!

duplicate memorial
Thank you so much for letting me know about the duplicate for Bessie. I'm not sure why that happens. Most likely operator error! lol
Have a great day.

Roy Gilbert Colson
Wonder if you have misplaced Roy with the wrong family...I have his parents as Manville Gilbert and Catherine (Witczak) Colson of the Green Bay, Shawano, Wisconsin area. Roy had four siblings, or Thelma Louise, Nathaniel Lowell, Harriet Mildred, and Lillian Ada. You can find my information about this family at using The Whiting Family as the source...see trees, of course.
