John Wesley Parks
Hey Karen, I was just looking at John Wesley's marriage to Lydia Ann Creviston and you notes in the bio say they were married in 1905 but I see a marriage document for them on Ancestry saying 1851 which I believe is accurate. The month and date are okay, just the date is wrong. I was looking at their kids and all their births were 1859-1861 and I knew something wasn't right.

Leonidas Monroe "Roe" Askren
Do you know if Leonidas Monroe "Roe" Askren was The son of John J and (Esther) Catherine Askren of Indiana. This couple had a son named Monroe Askren and his sister, Mintie, called him Roe. I'm having a really hard time locating any of Mintie's brothers and sisters, and only Mintie is listed on John J and Catherine's memorial as being their child. There were other siblings. Thank you for your help.

A Mystery??
Hi again Karen,

I wrote you a little while ago regarding Frank Joseph Clements. In looking closer at his obituary a couple of the names seem to match what I have in my family tree.

Please disregard my previous message regarding deleting Frank's memorial. I want to do some further research and see if I can figure out the correct relationships. It won't hurt anything to just leave it for now. Are you related to Frank? I'd appreciate any further information that you might have. There seems to be a mystery to solve here!

Thanks in advance for your understanding.

Best regards,

Frank Joseph Clements
Hi Karen,

I was looking at Find a Grave today and noticed that you have Frank Joseph Clements', Memorial #105185877, linked to parents Christien Gaston and Maria (Renner) Clementz. This is incorrect.

They did have a son named Franz Joseph "Frank" Clementz, Memorial #47612509, who was also born in 1877 but died in 1890. Franz's parents ARE Christien and Maria Clementz's and I do have records indicating this. By the way, Christien is my 2nd great grandfather.

I would appreciate it if you would delete Christien and Maria from your memorial. I wish you much success in finding the correct link to Frank's own parents.

Best regards,

Background information

Good evening.
I found your contact information through
Can you provide me any information Dr. M Harvey Johnson? Was Dr. Johnson an ophthalmologist? Did he work in Portland, Oregon? Can you provide his obituary?
Do you mind if I use the Headstone photograph on my family tree?

Hello -

Rozella is a cousin and I was wondering whether you would allow me to use the picture of her headstone on my family tree on Ancestry? I would give you credit for the picture. Also, if you took the picture of her husband's headstone, could I use that, too?

Thank you -

Anny Morris
Her name was Nanny and she was the daughter of John Thomas Jr. and Lydia Snead. She was born in 1800 and died in 1832. Her husband, whom she married in 1819, Aaron Morris was a son of Thomas Morris and Sarah Musgrave. Aaron was born in 1797 and died in 1832 also. I am a descendant of Aaron and Nanny,through their son Jesse Morris. Jesse was born in 1826 and died in 1904.
