Matt. I live near St. Louis, MO.

Researching Roach, McVicker, Merricks, Cessna/Cisney/Sisney/Cisne, Stackhouse, Parrot(t), Vallat/Vallet/Vallett, Murphy, Walsh, Ryan, Faherty, Donjon, Collignon, Deterding, Bertram... and many other lines. Am a descendant of the Plymouth Colony settlers Stephen Deane, William Twining, and Mary (Durrant) Ring. Also the Pennsylvania colonial settlers William Bills, John Cutler, Cuthbert Hayhurst, Thomas Stackhouse, and William Copeland.

Happy to exchange information and find new branches on the family tree.

Became interested in genealogy at an early age as I absorbed the many family anecdotes from my maternal grandmother and a paternal great uncle. Around 1991 I began compiling the genealogy in earnest. My thanks to all the kind, helpful people here on Find a Grave.

If you request information and I provide it, please respond so I know you received it.

Should you want me to transfer maintenance of a memorial for someone I'm not related to, I'd be happy to do so if you are that person's relative. Please use the "Edit" button on the memorial page and then click "Suggest a correction or provide additional information." Explain how you're related and send! Remember to include your Find a Grave ID number or I won't know to whom I should transfer the memorial.

The website below is mainly for poetry, but I do list my surnames there.
