I've always loved history. When I inherited my grandparent's genealogy records, I was fascinated by the piles of photos, clippings , and documents they had saved. Sifting through those records, a passion for my own family history was born. Since that time, I have traveled the back roads of Indiana, Illinois and Ohio looking for 'my people', just as my grandparents did. Continuing what they started is my way to honor them.
My goal on Find A Grave is to link families together, not to just collect memorials. I have spent thousands of hours researching my family, and want to their memorials to be as accurate and up to date as possible. If you have additions, correction, or questions regarding one of the memorials I manage, please contact me.
I'm currently researching the Gill, Beebe, Rea, Jacobs, Smith and Entsminger lines in the states mentioned above. If you'd like to chat, feel free to send a message.
