"Genealogy is like a gigantic gigsaw puzzle.
It's going to take a while to piece it all together. " -- Author unknown
"But don't forget the pioneers!
Brave heroes and heroines!
Their graves shall yet be found,
And monuments shall mark their dust,
As sacred earth and ground."

..."Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well." -Anonymous

Dale Bryan
Powell family
Hello, Cathy.
One of my ancestors was Lurany Powell, sister of your Calvin Powell.
She apparently married her cousin, Stephen Powell.
Their daughter, Lucy Sheldon Powell, married Cary Burdick.
These were my g-g-g-grandparents.

I would appreciate your help in clarifying generations of the family after the "Silver Book".
You can reach me at:

RE: TRESLER: I was very happy to connect Ira, to other family members.
Thank You! I'm trying to link all the children of Andrew Jackson (AJ) Tresler & Ida Lucy Batchelder. My distant connection is through the Batchelder family.

Daugherty legacy
Hello I am researching my fathers family. His name was patrick Daugherty and passed in 2013. I saw you had posted pics on my great-great-great-great grandmother Elizabeth Grauel Sayler 1811-1893.

Are we related?

Hi, Cathy, it's me again,hoping this msg finds you well. I have a "knot" on my tree and think you might know about it. In Leslie McLaughlin's Our Book of Finley's and their Kinfolk Families, on page 311 there is mention of a Hannah Wierman who might or might not have been married to our Edward Gaffney. I cobbled her onto my line and lo and behold, if I have actually the right person, she is the mother-in-law of Dolly Madison.......who was previously married to a Todd, an atty from Philly. (I think).

Could you please go my tree and take a peek. Not sure how to contact you on so chose this venue.
Susan McLaughlin (sister of Leslie the author)
