Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born & raised in Indianapolis. Genealogy addict!
My paternal grandparents were both from the Warren/Butler County, KY area.
Maternal ancestors were from Hardin & Breckinridge Cos, KY before crossing the river into southern Indiana. I search for Wand, Sublett, Ellis, Ferguson, Cohron, Causey, Williamson, Barmore, McDonald, Ross and many others. I have had this addiction for about 30 yrs! Since there is no cure for it, I just try to make the best of it. Of course, my children think I am crazy & they may be right.
I am married with 3 grown children & one granddaughter (my joy!)

Due to ongoing health problems, I haven't been able to spend much time on the computer for several months.


On September 18, 2015, after battling for 6 long years, Madeline Claudia Welch succumbed to stage 4 metastatic breast cancer while surrounded by family.
She will be sorely missed.
Soon, there will be a nice grave stone and Iíll be sure to update with that information including photos as I have been chosen as administrator for all of her accounts including her personal ancestry file.

Tracking Lineage
I have been tracking my lineage for about 2 weeks now, and I couldn't have done it without Claudia/Madeline. I am a part of the Williamsons, and I was finding it very difficult to track it without paying for a service. Almost 30 years ago, her and my father, as long-lost distant cousins, sent letters back and forth, tracking through our paternal line. I used the letters as a guide, and when she indicated in the letters she believed she'd reached somewhat of a dead end, I searched the internet and found the missing link to find out how we had arrived in the United States, posted by none other than Claudia. I would have loved to meet her and thank her for her great work. Now I am currently in contact with the cemetery where my last known ancestor is buried in the UK in search of his family records (based off the location that Claudia posted he was buried) and he will be sending information my way soon. Honored to be able to continue her work.

William Washington Martin
William Washington Martin 1826-1892 and Sarah Hester Evans
are NOT buried in the Fanny Rone Cemetery. They have a stone in the MARTIN CEMETERY and it is no way connected with Fanny Rone...

This is my great grandfather.

RE: Mary Lavinia McMillian 40574241
Henry I am sorry to here of your Mom's Passing.

the information that I have is

Ann W. Crain was married to Robert Boone McMillian born March 20, 1818in Scott County, Kentucky and died in 1870 in California.

Mary Lavinia McMillian had a brother named Robert Beauchamp McMillian.

Robert Boone's father's name was also Robert Boone McMillian born in Ireland.

I have no information on either John Littleberry McMillen or Margaret (Peggy) Hinde.

Take Care hope this helps

I am not sure how to do this, but Madeline has passed away. Here is the # for her memorial if you would like to leave her a note. She was a wonderful contributor on Find-A-Grave.

There are two identical memorials for him in Morgantown KY.. #119578652 in Riverview Cemetery and #22648271 in Hill Haven Memory Gardens. Which is correct?

I believe that the correct first name is "Johny", according to the headstone. This is memorial 82098254. This is my wife's great uncle, and unless you have a family link I would like to take management of this memorial, as well as his brother Ferdinand (82098317). Thank you!
