HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
It is so hard to believe that another year has gone by.
I want to thank those who helped me pay my
webserver and web domain fees this year.
I am truly Blessed.
It warms my heart to see that I am helping people find their roots.
We live on a fixed income as I am now 71 years old and
my husband is 83 years old.
I do this as a hobby to help people find their roots.
I make absolutely no money doing it but I do have to pay the bills
for the site.
Other than what I get for donations, I pay out of my own pocket
for the domain names i.e.
www.usgenealogyexpress.com ; and
as well as www.conneautohio.us
Again I make no money from these websites. It is all my hobby
to help all of you researchers.
I am Sharon Wick, retired and researching my family tree.
While I am doing it, I am putting things on this website to help
anyone that is researching theirs as well.
Lots of work here.
Again his Month I will have been working on some other areas of this website to keep
I hope you all get good use out of this work I am doing.
In the meantime, have to take care of family matters. My
101 year old mother is still doing pretty well, although very
She is amazing.|
Mom is doing pretty well after she had a bad fall
and broke her femur at her hip.
She is doing wonderful now.
Jim and I cannot leave her alone. One or the other of us has
to stay with her as her ALZ is progressing but she is still doing
Jim is doing fine too. I am good too. ;-)
Well, actually Jim fell on the ice and hurt his hip and twisted his
He will recover. That is a good thing.
Just trying to find time to work on the website. It is
kind of like having a child again when a parent has Dementia and/or
I will get thru it (hopefully) :-)
If you need something transcribed, please contact me and I will do
my best to get it to you.
I started out this month by finishing 137 biographies for Darke
I still have more to do then I will move on to another county.

I enjoy what I do and I enjoy helping people make their
I myself finally found my great grandmother McPheron /
Adkins' death certificate and her house!
In August I finally found my Grandmother Adkin's
2nd husband's short biography. Her name was spelled
wrong in it but it is too late to have the editor change it
as it is out of copyright.
I also found a lot of my dad's family. It has been a
good month for my research.
Wow!!!! What an exciting find.
My mother's father passed away in the influenza epidemic in
1918 and with that was kind of a falling apart of that part
of the family.
Thanks to my distant cousin, Paula, I have copies of
wonderful portraits of my great grandmother and grandfather
My cousin, Paula passed away in a motorcycle
accident, May She Rest in Peace.
It just shows that you should never wait to ask someone for
information as you just never know if God is going to take
them from you.
You don't get another chance.
I do know one thing, and that is... If you have a suspected
source, pounce on it because from what I have seen in my own
family tree, most of my sources have passed on to the Great
Had I procrastinated, I wouldn't be as far as I am in my own
I still have several "Brick Walls" to conquer.
One is my Love branch. The farthest back I have found
them is in Lawrence Co., Indiana.
Another is my Earp branch. The farthest I can find my
great great grandmother Milly Earp is in 1853 when she
married my great great grandfather. Simon P. Earp
assumed guardianship over her so she could get married and
his son, Frank and his wife, Mary Earp signed the marriage
Simon lived in Shelby Co., Illinois.
I found her with her new husband in Linn County, Missouri in
And I also know she was remarried to her 2nd husband, George
Leonard in Moultrie Co., Illinois.
and family lore says that she died in St. Joseph, Missouri
Milly Earp was also living in Macon Co., Illinois after her
1st husband died of disease in the Civil War.

Kitty has gone to Kitty Heaven. She fought a
hard fight with her Feline Lymphoma and she lost.
She was about 15 years old or so as we adopted her after she
reached full size.
Kitty loves to go outside and didn't come in last night.
Jim found her in the morning and she was already gone.
I hope she didn't suffer
She will be dearly missed.
