|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in Genealogy all my life. I had a grandmother McDonald who loved to tell stories, and I really loved to hear them I got serious about family History in 1969 when we moved from CA back home to KS and I could visit with some of the great aunts & Uncles. |
I had a Bonesbuddy who loved to travel with me. We have been from coast to coast tracking bones...Now it seems everything is on computer however I still love to get out and go to libraries, court house's and cemeteries. Now my Bonesbuddy is on Find a grave I shall always miss her. My daughter Julee is also on find a grave, this way I can visit any time day or night.
I am enjoying working with find a grave. I had three children, four grandchildren and Six great grands. I love every one of them and hope some decide to carry on with the genealogy.
If you find mistakes please let me know via Edit.
After all I am only human and fast becoming an OLD Human.

|Kathy Travis||Ellsworth Ecord|
June, I noticed that under Ellsworth and Theodosia Ecord's Find a Grave notes there is a sixth child listed from their marriage as "Roy." I cannot find any reference to him in any other records I have searched. Do you know anything about this family? Ellsworth is my great great uncle. -- Kathy Travis
|Neil D Scheidt||RE: Sarah Dry Hibert|
Thanks so much. While possible, it is doubtful someone closer will come along. My paternal grandmother was nee Dry and my maternal was nee Hilbert. Both from the same village of Dryville, Berks Pa. This is the first marriage of the two famlies for which I am aware, other than my parents.
|deb nikas||RE: Hamp|
We are related, but distantly. I'm descended from Jacob & Ivey Rosanna's third son David; they are my 4x great grandparents. It was quite a discovery to learn when the Hamp book came out that we lived only 10 miles from the original homestead in northwestern Ohio. We visited their graves in Ai, Ohio, which is just across the road from their homestead. There is a brick house on that site, but it was built after the Hamps had left the area.
Definitely check the Hamp hunters site. You should be able to get lots of info from it.
|deb nikas||RE: Hamp|
Hi June, Have you looked at the book "The Roots and Branches of Jacob Hamp?" (emigrated to northwestern Ohio in the 1820's, originally from Germany) Also check out the online Hamp hunters, derived from the book. Robert Hamp, the author, is my great-uncle. The main contact for the hunters is listed as Patricia Hamp - she worked with Robert to update the book a few years ago and is very knowledgeable about the family history and connections.
I don't believe that I'm directly related to a Rebecca Hamp, but there is quite an extended family from Jacob Hamp's sons - 5 or 6 I think, who then each had many children. My great- grandfather, Michael Ernest Hamp, was one of 8 children.
Good Luck & keep me posted,
Hi June, Could you please transfer management of my mother's memorial to me? Thank you. TJ Jameson
|Melissa Foist||RE: Cousin?|
I will have to look at this on my Ancestry but that is so cool. My brother and I have been working on family information so it is great to connect to people.
Makes me happy 😊
|Tami||RE: Jennie Quick|
Oh my goodness!! This would be exciting to find some more Spangler family, as I have few.
For Jennie Dixon - she married Thomas Richard Quick, and they are my Lynch-Quick line of desc. Not a direct desc from them, but from Thomas's grandmother Mary Ann Hamilton Quick Lynch.
Thomas's grandfather David Nelson Quick was killed in the Civil War and his wife then married James G. Lynch. The Quick-Lynch families were very close, and my James Lynch raised the Quick children as his own.
My Spanglers are in TN and then Scott Co. and Washington Co. VA- then Alabama- then Indiana-. My John Spangler married Susan Hensley in Scott Co. VA. After John Spangler died in Alabama, his wife Susan went North to be near family - brother Isaac Hensley.
Please feel free to contact me via email. Spanglers are a huge family. Mine go back to VA and TN.

Oh YES... Vernon Lee lived out west of Edinburg as we did, knew his family more so, we rode the school bus. Bob, Wayne and Vernon helped us in combining at harvest time. Knew them all.
