Have been so busy trying to unpack things for this
house now that we are back in Ohio, I just haven't seemed to have
time to do what I should do here.
I have uploaded lots of biographies for Ashtabula County and Brown
County, Ohio, though.
We had a death in the family on New Years Day.
I feel I should mention it here.
It was my oldest sister, Sylvia.
I am praying that she finds peace as her life was pretty hectic.
I will try to do requests ASAP.
I have been using a facebook group's research list as a guide.

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.
I am also researching
the Dunn Family along with all the offshoots like wives and anyone
that has something special going on.
It includes surnames like Heustis, Gooding, Drake, Dunham, Freeland,
Torrence, Slater, Sowers, Bowers and many other names.

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.
Passed away September 20, 2021
Buddy was a very good dog. He was Jim's best friend as
they went everywhere together.
Jim misses him so very much.
First his hip went bad and then his foot. He couldn't
walk without falling ever few steps.
He cried a lot.
We decided that it was time for him to go to Doggie Heaven.
He is being cremated and will come back to us in a little
box in which Jim will probably take to Ohio and find just
the right spot for it.
Rest in Peace, Buddy Boy.
