Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy and poking into history for nearly 40 years now. My mom got me started when she became curious about where her ancestors came from in Germany and where my dad's ancestors came from in France. In the process of researching, I got hooked on genealogy and historical research.

RE: George Bowman obit
Thank you for the obituary and information on the Bowman family. This answers many questions and leads to other family connections.

The part about the family stopping in Missouri is new to me. I wonder if they met floods that were mentioned in another family history of Alpha and my mother's friend. That family (Pasko/Temple) headed West as well and ended up neighbors of the Bowmans.

I did not have anything on John and Arline moving to Denver. Alpha was maid of honor at my mother's wedding in the mid 1940s. I was under the impression that she and Betty were at the family home in LaPorte, assisting in running the place during their father's illness.

I did contact the grandson and great grandson of John Hayes and Arline and told them of findagrave and the memorials posted.

Abraham Worley memorial # 102044936
Abraham was my great grandmother's father. Archives has his birth date about 1829 and his death on September 6, 1874. Are they wrong?
Thanks for all that you are doing to get people's loved ones recorded.

Alpharetta Williamson
Hi Ardie - Thank you for the parental links. I was able to confirm them on If you had not brought her to my attention, I probably would not have realized that I had missed Alpharetta being over 100 years old! I have now placed her in my "Centenarians" virtual cemetery. (-: Take care, Amy
