Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Jan 1951 in Terre Haute, Indiana. I graduated Wiley H.S. in 1969 and then attended ISU. I graduated in 1973 with a teaching degree. In Aug 1974, I entered the US Air Force and worked aircraft maintenance. I later married Richard Thompson from Dallas, Texas. We have 2 sons, Bryan who is now in the US Air Force and Brett who is in the US Army. Both sons have had tours of duty in Iraq. In Feb 1997, I retired from the military.

Since retiring, I've become quite involved with genealogy. I realized I do have an interesting family. I have produced several books and given them to relatives. All have been quite pleased with the family books.

I do appreciate the people who have taken fotos of tombstones and helped me locate some of my relatives. If anyone needs some help from Las Vegas, Nevada, just send me an e-mail.

RE: Frank M. Walker III
That is why it is important to make the request from the memorial, that way the # is included. Please do that with the one you want me to transfer. Don't worry about transferring back to me.

I would like to find more info on the Castle family. Yes Juanita Bernadine Gibbs was his first wife and the mother of his two children. Bernadine was a second cousin of mine. I can not remember her married name at her death but I remember going to the grave side services with my Mom and Aunt. I am also looking for Wayne and Bernadine wedding picture.

Hamill Genealogy
Hi, Karen - I am interested in your Hamill entries. The McCalla people and the Hemphill people and the Young people and the Hamill people are all in the McCalla and Hamill Genealogies at the Chicago Newberry Library. Have you been there? The author was Paul David Hamill McCalla.
And I found where his father is buried. I am thinking he may be buried in the same cemetery. I have an inquiry out to find out if I am correct.

I would be interested in sharing information with you, if you are still interested in this web site or genealogy, in general.

Zoe Anne (Hemphill) Tom
