This is my grandmother, Flossie Mae Knox Morris.
She is a daughter to William Knox & Mary Winifred Butler Knox & a full sister to all the children. She is also buried in Wills away from her family, but near her husband of the time of her passing, Lee Morris. I would like to take control of this family, as i'm the geneologist of the clan it seems. Let me know what i can do to assist you in this.

Wrong Paul Shinkle attached to Irene Dobson
Hi Larry,

I don't know who added or suggested this information--perhaps a FindaGrave computer? but there is a Paul E. Shinkle attached as a spouse of Lela Irene (Schultz) Dobson. The link connects to the memorial for Paul Shinkle O'Dell, who was my first cousin once removed, but he was NOT the same person as Paul E. Shinkle who was married to Irene, and I'm hoping you can correct this error.

Irene's husband, Paul E. Shinkle, was born in 1903 in Kansas; his parents were Charles and Frances Shinkle. They moved to Missouri, where he met and married Irene.

My cousin, Paul Shinkle O'Dell was born Paul E. Shinkle December, 1906 in Kentucky; his parents were Eugene Shinkle and Sarah (Butler) Shinkle. He never lived in Missouri.

I was able to document this by doing an Ancestry search on "Paul Shinkle" in the 1910 U.S. Census and finding both of them with their respective families.

I (as well as Paul O'Dell's son) would greatly appreciate it if you could remove this erroneous reference. If you can't do it, please let me know who can. I'm hoping, too, that Irene's name will no longer appear as a spouse link in Paul O'Dell's memorial.

Thank you very much!

Larry, I recently found your contribution of information and photo's for Gabriel. I see it lists you as being a direct descendant.

I too am descended. Thanks to this site I find information on Lillian Stine Hartley (My Great Grandmother) who is Gabriel's Grand Daughter making him my GGG Grandfather.

I would love to share or exchange information with you!

Feel free to contact me,

Ivan Schug, WWII KIA
I am Patty Locher, reporter for the Sabetha Herald, Sabetha, Kansas, which also covers Fairview, which is where Ivan was raised and graduated from high school. I plan to write Ivan Schug's story for our special Memorial Day section this year, and I am hoping to get some information about him from individuals who are related to him or have personal knowledge about him. Please email me at with any information and photos that I can use in this article to honor Ivan's memory, as well as any contact information. Since I hope to get my articles completed by early March, I would appreciate an early reply.
Thank you so much for your time and effort!

RE: Irene Dobson
Larry, I received your message today. You had answered my email once before.

I tried to contact Sandie Shinkle in facebook but did not get any reply. I think her son is Oren Peek but have not contacted him.

Lela Irene Dobson
I am doing research on my family history. Are you related to Lela Irene Dobson.

The reason I ask is because her Mother, Nannie Crle Schulz was my grandfathers sister. I have information on the Crile family if any of Lela family is interested .
