My late wife and I started researching our family histories about 40 years ago. After years of searching, I found my great great grandfather George W White from research that started with an entry here on Find A Grave. That find inspired me to start entering other family members and adding photos.

Most of my memorial entries are family and friends. However, I do make entries for folks I come across while taking photos.

I hope some of my entries might help other researchers looking for long lost ancestors. I consider Henry County, Missouri home, but now reside in Derby, Kansas. Both our family ancestors were original land patent holders of Rives County before it was renamed Henry County in the late 1830's.

On July 17, 2014 I added my most precious memorial, that of my wife and best friend of 48 years, Marilyn Janeen Fosnow White. That 960th memorial will always be my most visited one.

In November 2015 my time in Henry County ended with the sale our retirement farm. Moving on with life alone, I signed up on the online dating site Christian Mingle. I corresponded with a couple of nice ladies with Kansas roots, but our distance apart was to far for a serious relationship. The very day I had given up, a lady I had corresponded earlier, answered what I thought was a goodbye note with ”I’ve just been waiting for you to ask”. We met two day later and I discovered she lived down the street at the end of my block. The bio photo was taken two years later on the second anniversary of first meeting, and our first anniversary of marriage.
