Bio and Links
Bio Photo Ever since I was a teenager, I have always been fascinated with cemeteries. I can't explain this any more than I can explain my strange love of filling-out forms! At any rate, both 'loves' are perfect for Genealogy!

I am happy to transfer memorials to related persons (unless memorials are of my own ancestors).

Captain Benjamin Eli Guthrie
Hi! You asked me if I am related. Sorry it took so long to reply.

My husband and I are double-related (related to some of the same ancestors).

When I started my ancestry tree, I had my maternal grandmother's DAR tree. I thought, "Oh, this will be easy," and I plugged everybody in. Well, what I discovered (that my grandmother probably never knew), was that following her maternal grandmother's line went into the French monarchy. I eventually got to Charlemagne and beyond! That was in 2011-2012.

Last Summer, I found out that my husband's maternal grandfather's line also goes to Charlemagne and beyond! When I plugged everyone in and connected them, all the relationships in my tree changed in the Relationship Calculator! So, where before, my husband's maternal grandfather said, "maternal grandfather of your husband," now it says he is my 32nd cousin twice removed!

Well, so I calculated the relationship to Captain Guthrie for myself and for my husband.

Captain Guthrie is the paternal grandfather of the wife of the first cousin once removed of the wife of my 31st cousin three times removed! :)

Captain Guthrie is the paternal grandfather of the wife of my husband's second cousin twice removed!!
:)

I hope that answers your question! :)

Monnig
Hello,
I read your information regarding Anna Maria Monnig Kaufmann. She is my great grandmother. I am a bit confused regarding Johann Monnig marrying Father Heinrich Kaufmann's sister. If this is my great uncle you are speaking of, it is my understanding his sister became a nun. I believe the second wife was Mary Fisher.
I would be interested in what information you have regarding this.
Thanks,
Kay Kaufmann Torigian

Thanks for the detailed information, this seems to prove that her maiden name was, indeed, Moorehead.

However, I am left with another question. Do you know anything about Sarah Bonham Moorehead (Find A Grave #53126314) who married William Berry Burriss? Are the two Sarahs related to each other?

Thanks for your help. -Bobbie

Hello,
This memorial gives you as a source of information. So I thought you might be able to confirm for me that her maiden name was Moorehead and not Bonham.
Her obituary and her headstone seem to indicate that her maiden name was Bonham. I have been unable to find any records for her that gives a maiden name.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hello Mitchell
I am venturing back into the Doolittle Doolittle/James et al realm in Find A Grave after well over a couple of years filling notebooks with sagas of the Waymire clan and life in the Little Lost Valley in Idaho.
Veva Hazel Waymire Doolittle aka Grandma Tib my maternal Grandmother never spoke of her family much. I think now it was a bit of intimidation by the James/Doolittle clan. Really I do and don't blame G'ma but instead do Ida who told Walter he was forbidden to marry "that woman. She has only half a brain" being a twin. I saw how Nellie acted toward her in 1970 and when she (ND) died Veva was free. First thing she did was go to Howe ID, her roots to tend her sick nephew AND go to a rodeo, drive a tractor, gather eggs and ever so much more. What a transformation and I love my trips each year to the cousins and the tales I hear. Now to take the notes and stories and edit the Waymire tome I have, continue with my writing/research etc with JASHP.org fold laundry and maybe look into more Dooley stuff, and then put it in the Find A Grave site---I should live so long. Take care. Keep busy. I too love the outdoor museums and don't mind forms but still don't like the family tree. Mine is a twiggy bush with tags hanging and stories on the tags. and that is the story of my rowboat (and the title of my blog page but too shy to write on it). emily sue
PS my tree is gone on ancestry.com My brother (evil personified and con man extraordinaire) found me there and sent a correction or change ---which was wrong anyway. So I left but still use the site for me as well as for my JASHP work.

Hi Mitchell,

The branch of Beans that you mentioned comes from Joel Bean who was brother to my wife's ancestor Cephas Bean. Not too distant. It would be cool to find pictures of Cephas, his siblings, and his father & mother. Although his mother died in 1865 it is still possible one exists.

Captain Robert Craig
Mitchell - thank you for posting the obit for Robert Craig on his record. I am related to him through his daughter Elizabeth who married Dr. Earl Clapp. I see you are also related to the Mitchells. Elizabeth and Earl's son, Theophilus Clapp married an Eliza Mitchell. I have been unable to find much information about her family and since they were in the same area, I was wondering if maybe it is the same family since they were in the same area. We might be related more than once. Would love to chat with you on e-mail.
