Bio

In my quest to document my ancestry for my family and preserve our photographs and stories in a manner that could be shared, I started on Ancestry. I began to see a more personal reflection of our ancestors on findagrave. Because of volunteers on findagrave I've found family past and present. What a joy to find my great-great- grandmother on findagrave and connect those dots to my bigger story!

I love history, but when I see history unfold in my own family that's amazing. We are the wealth of the English and the poor of the Irish immigrates during the Irish potato famine in 1845. We are ministers, farmers, dressmakers, police and a few thugs. My people were patriots in every conflict from the American Revolutionary War to the Gulf War. We are the Toman's, Cullison's, Smith's, Gordon's, Linsdale's. Campbell's, Abrams……we are related to the King of Scots, George Washington, Christopher Gist, Daniel Boone, Caleb Smith, Johann Gottfried Orwig and maybe you! Connect your dots.

As a Daughter of the American Revolution volunteer, I have proofread and digitized more than 8,600 cemetery records from 1934-1978, for Crown Hill Cemetery, Sedalia, Mo. Volunteer today!
