Bio Photo Happy Winter everyone! I look forward to Spring, and to helping you all out here in Washington State. Let me know if you would like some helps!

Some have asked about my father - My father's service was this past week (July), and thank you all for your previous comments about Dad and his 14 year battle with Alzheimer's Disease. He was a great Christian man. Full of kindness, very compassionate, gentle and humble. He will be so missed by all of us four children, 14 grand children, 20 great grand children, and 3 great great grand children. Dad -- Your legacy of family, love, and compassion, will live on in our hearts forever.

Dad is now pain free. My beloved Dad was Leonard L. Rodig, #164857784.

GREAT NEWS - Our Tombstone Project has been launched. What an amazing project we have begun, with adding markers to unmarked graves in our Snohomish County, Washington cemeteries! Thank you all for your interest in our project. We are looking for donations for headstones for unmarked graves! Wonderful community outreach and focus on historical preservation! Stay tuned for future information on our project!

My love for family history came from my parents and my grandmothers, Elsie Stockham and Minnie Rodig. Both of my Idaho grandmothers wrote down birth dates and death dates, and kept detailed family letters. And Mother loved to stop by every country cemetery she saw, while on their camping travels. They traveled around the country looking for family graves and new relatives. And had many exciting stories to share, and met wonderful families.

When we discovered that the Oregon Trail went through our Stockham family farm in Idaho, my love of history grew. And with it, sharing stories of my family and how they came west. What brave families to pioneer West!

I continue to hunt for family lines and fill in the blank spaces. Some of the families I am researching are Allen, Rodig, Franklin, Stabbal, Morgel, Stockham, Jones, Lynch, Follon/Fallon, Spangler, Quick, Smith, Johnson, Sherrill, Ferguson, Hamilton, Davis, Crawford, Gardiner, Blick (deBlieck) and Hensley.

RE: Oscar Leonard
I am not a relative and would prefer not to have a transfer. I was working on another Leonard line with a connection to Orton and decided to fill in some of the other Leonard's data since I had the information.

RE: Affie Vanderpool
We had our share of rain today, being my only day off.

As for the Meeks, I can not connect to Joe but I have Anna Meek or Meeks Sears, # 36473386 and Sarah Meek born 1784, PA, married to Williams Cummins, Dec. 25, 1803 in Pulaski County, Kentucky.
Sarah is not yet on F-A-G but I am pretty sure she and Anna are sisters. Next is where it gets questionable as to their parents. I am thinking their father was Nathanial Meek born 1758 in PA and died Oct. 09, 1826, Pulaski, Kentucky. As for their mother, I have no idea but supposedly some of their family went to Jennings County, Indiana.
What we do know is Basel Meek born about 1736 James City, Virginia and his wife Mary Lee born about 1738 in Northampton, Virginia are not Nathaniel's parents.
Looking at your Meek postings, I am thinking we might want to compare notes. The Meek or Meeks family is my dad's side but on my mom's side, I am a descendant of Col. Charles Martin # 61079503 that built Fort Martin before the Revolution on the Monongalia River, in current Monongalia County (West) Virginia, just south of Fayette County, PA.

We call an hour of sun here in Montana, Summer, at least this year I think we will.
Being from Washington, I blame Portland for the rain.

While on the subject of Portland, I see you have Meeks in your family line as do I.
Have you found any connections to Joe Meeks, trapper, guide and U.S. Marshall?

Thanks Tami;
It Rains in Western Washington? No way.
We get your rain here in Montana about a day after you do.
It sure is a lot better then the fires we had 2 years ago.

RE: Susan Geyer # 157807174
No, she is not a relative. I just ran across an obit stating she was born in Olney, IL so I added her to Find A Grave. This is what we, volunteers, do here, at our Richland County Genealogy Society. Are you related? If so, I would be glad to transfer her memorial to you. Thank you for adding the photo!

RE: Clara Caton inEvergreen

Thank you for trying to locate a headstone for her. If you are at the cemetery this spring after it dries out and happen to have a shovel with you, I would love for you to dig a little in hopes of finding a memorial plaque. Don't make this a special trip. I'm thankful for all your help.
