Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in the Klamath Basin, Oregon. I am so into family and I love each and everyone of them with all my heart. It doesnt matter if they are cousins, 2nd cousins, in-laws, etc....I am interested in their history as well. I have been researching family ancestors for the last 2 years. What intrigued me most about genealogy was when I saw all the information my Aunt Betty had found on the Skelton/Swadley/Vineyard/Brown/Allred families. She has sense past the task onto me and I am having so much fun finding new and/or corrected information on my ancestors.
Now I have furthered my genealogy research into my Mom's family which are Fanning/Carr/Causier/Bussey.
I am also researching my husband's ancestors as well. They are Bratton/Rose/Shogren/Larsen families.
I am addicted to the drug "genealogy" and I dont plan on stopping any time soon, so please no intervention on this one....hahahahaha

My memorials that are either created and/or maintained are family members only, so please do not ask to have them transferred. I am honored to take care of my family members and their memorials because I feel it is my responsibility to make sure their legacy is presented to whomever wants to look at the information I have found.
The pictures I have attached to the memorials are for you to enjoy, so please feel free to include them into your genealogy/research/memorial information.
If there is information that you are specifically looking for, please contact me and I will do what I can to fulfill your requests.
Happy Researching and God Bless!!!!

RE: Bergquist/Shogren
Sally, my apologies - I did not see this message from you, as I only log-in here from time to time and I pick away at the family tree slowly just once in a while.

My paternal grandmother was Anna Bergquist daughter of Betsy Bergquist and Olof. My father was Ray Loftesness, her son. Betsy was married to my grandfather Nels Loftesness, but they divorced and she re-married late in life taking the name of her new husband Floyd Nash. (became Anna Nash).

Not sure if this helps you connect us to the work you're doing or how we may be related, but I do remember my grandmother talking about the Shogrens a lot when I was a child.

I knew August Bergquist my great-uncle as a child, but really none of the rest of that side of the family. I remember meeting some Shogrens at family reunions when I was very young.

RE: Mary H (Fraser) Swadley's name
The Missouri State marriage Records Index 1766-1986 lists Mary's maiden name as FRASER, but you may want to make sure you search every combination of the name in your research. This name has just too many variation spellings.

Mary Swadley
This memorial was transferred to me by the original contributor listed on the memorial. He listed the name as FRASER. I do not know his source. You have asked for an edit that Mary died in 1888 and her headstone reads 1998. Please give the documentation of your date and that she died in Greene County.

Sally would you please re add his headstone photo in Rockhouse Cemetery to Find A Grave# 35994030. I copy & pasted the one you had on the other memorial of his, but it was a duplicate and so I deleted mine and added the picture to the new memorial.. But on the inside of the picture I did give you credit saying you had taken the photo. I hope that was ok, if not I will delete it out. Thank you

Thanks for clarifying Sarah's surname. I have found records with four different spellings for her and didn't know which one was correct. Do you have any information about her ancestors? I have none. Would appreciate your help.

lol - Got a chuckle on your being hooked on genealogy. Do you want to go to "AA" with me? That stands for Ancestry Anonymous and my husband swears he is going to send me there:)
