Bio and Links
I am 76 years old and have been doing genealogy for over 40 years. I started wih my line then got into my husband's and when our daughter married, I've worked on my son-in-law's too. Now I have 2 grandson-in-law's and I've worked on their for the children. I love finding out about our history and meeting other people, although I can't get very far anymore. My PC is
my lifesaver when I can't be with my children.
I've been all over the US but I live in Central
Illinois , where I was born.
I used to sew alot too but can't do much of it anymore. the funny thing is the line I started
with, I've not got any farther.
Please feel free to contact me if you find errors
or woould like to add information.

RE: Joseph Peyton
I could only read 17 May 18__ on his grave marker because it was badly damaged by the elements.

Hi Shirley, You do not know me but I am your 4th cousin; my name is Edward Smith. We connect at John Michael Enterline III. On your memorial for Johann Michael Enderlien there is some information in the bio section that mentions you having a copy of his marriage from the family bible. Is there any chance you could share that with me? Do you know if the bible is still in existence and who might have it? I would love to be able to see some images from it.

Simpson Roberts
Simpson had one more child, my great-grandfather, Arthur N. Roberts. He was born 12/17/1884 and died 4/13/1942. If you would like more information on his marriages and children, please let me know.

Thank you so much for posting this photo. I live in California, and would never be able to get this on my own.

Elizabeth Epler Enterline
Thanks so much for posting the grave and information about my great-great-grandmother. I saw that Mary Fose was looking for members of Jacob and Elizabeth Bryan who are two more of my great-great grandparents -- they parents of Daniel Franklin Bryan who married Rachel E. Enterline.

The two generations of Bryans moved from Lancaster Co PA in 1872 to Cerro Gordo, Il. and then in 1881 Jacob and Elizabeth went to Ringgold Co. Iowa, Daniel and Rachel were in Crawford Co. Iowa by 1884 when their next child was born. My grandmother was the youngest of their children, born in 1895. Several members of the family are still in Western Iowa.

Elizabeth Clayton Tingley is my great great great grandmother. I have some information for you to add: William Clayton was born December 28 1767 and died may 14 1817. Elizabeth's father. Margaret Fitz Randolph is her mother. She was born Fe. 4, 1777 and died Sept 24, 1854. I have a lot more, but we can start there. If you would like to transfer her memorial to me I can add and connect everyone. My number is: 48605408 Julie Marriott Anderson

Jemima Groves

I probably sent a suggestion regarding the spelling of her first name. I uploaded the photo of her headstone and it is spelled Jemima as opposed to Jemina. I just now sent the correction through the edit button, a much improved system over sending e-mails! I'm sorry. No relation. Thank you for responding and take care!

RE: Koppenhaver
I'll keep at it, and it looks like others will too. It is amazing how many pieces of the puzzle have been put together with the efforts of different people. :-)

I hope the month of March is nice where ever you are!
