Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Debbie, and I am a genealogy researcher, mom of 3, wife of 30 years, pet owner to 5 cats and 1 dog , gardener & crafter, and am a teacher to 3-5 year olds for that mighty paycheck. When I am not looking for my own family's records, I am out exploring small cemeteries and taking photos for those requesting cemetery photos close to me. During the summers I like to venture out and seek out stones and learn of the history that made me who I am. My favorite so far is Parke County, Indiana. I walked in the courthouse to find directions to a cemetery, and the clerk was a distant cousin!!! I also love to research Labette County KS for family tidbits. Family Surnames: DANIEL, POELMA, WATSON, HUFFMAN, SUMPTER, SUMTER, COOPER, COPPINGER, SAYLOR,BOWMAN among others.

When weather is bad, or I don't want to leave home, I like to work on crafts, mainly sewing, crochet, or counted cross stitch. My current project is to the left of my bio.

I also encourage you to join a Facebook group I admin, called "Find A Grave Volunteers" (

Happy Digging!

Archibald Marlin is he in your tree?
Logan County Records
The indians, numbering 10,000 within a 200 mile radius of Nashborough,
continued firing upon the settlers causing numerous deaths and burning
their homesteads which made life very precarious on the Cumberland
frontier. A year after signing of the Comberland Compact, only about
one-forth of settlers remained. More than fifty had been killed and with
their crops destroyed, their cattle killed and their food and gunpowder
nearly depleted, the rest left for safer quarters in Kentucky.The following
court record in Logan Co. Ky., dated January 15, 1782,

Hi Debbie,

Thank you for all your hard work on all of your research. It is so important. I would just like to transfer 21098561 to my ownership if you would as this is my father. He is currently living but soon will be losing him to cancer.

Thank You,
Debbie Glass Ernst
