Find A Grave ID


Born and raised Summit Co OH; served US Army proudly 1972-1980; Missouri Ozarks has been "home" since 1980. Actively researching my family surnames of COMBEST, VANBUREN, BURR, UPDEGRAFF, DOUTHIT, LeGRAND, WELEVER, WACKLE, HAMANN, BRODBECK and HERZIG (all variations of spelling apply), and several lateral families of Saratoga Co NY, Fairfield Co Connecticut, Lucas Co OH, Shelby Co IL and ancestral roots of Pulaski and Casey Co KY.

Roommate's family names; ROSENBAUM, SWIFT, WATSON and lateral lines.

SPECIAL LATERAL FAMILY LINEAGE: My great uncle, Joseph F. EDWARDS who passed 1990 was very special to me. I knew only of his mother Maude MAYER. Recently uncovered much about his family, that no one ever heard about; especially family of GOLDSBERRY, PIXLEY, VAN RENSSELAER, TILLOTSON, DELL, MORRETT, SOUTHMAYD, AND OTHERS.

My companion, Beauty (1993-2008).

Special thoughts always to my guardian angel "BJP" who passed away in October of 2011 and second cousin "Suzie" who passed in December 2001.

I want to thank all contributors, especially in and around Toledo Ohio, for helping me put my ancestral family back together. It's one heck of a journey!
