AUGUST, 2019

Hi There....
Hope all is well with everyone.

It has now officially been 11 years since I started this website.

I hope everyone is enjoying it.   It is a lot of hard work but lately I haven't had as much time to devote to it.
Still taking care of my 101 year old mother who is going strong. :-)

This Month I hope to get several counties worked on.
I have been doing requests and there are LOTS of them.
I transcribed am starting the month with biographies for Wood Co., OH.
I am working on family names for Ohio on Facebook, ie. Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, Southwest, etc. Ohio Genealogy.
Lots of work!

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 it moving.
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 forgetful.
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 pretty well.
Jim is doing fine too.  I am good too. ;-)
Well, actually Jim fell on the ice and hurt his hip and twisted his knee.
He has recovered as best that a man his age can recover.  That is a good thing.
Just trying to find time to work on the website.   With mom's Alzheimers it is kind of like having a child again.
It is a blessing to still have her here, though.
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.

My Research

I enjoy what I do and I enjoy helping people make their genealogy discoveries.
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 McPheron.
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.
Again, 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 Beyond.
Had I procrastinated, I wouldn't be as far as I am in my own research.
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 license.
Simon lived in Shelby Co., Illinois.
I found her with her new husband in Linn County, Missouri in 1860.
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.

This is what Ohio Genealogy Express is all about.
I am not in this for the money.  This is My Contribution to Humanity.

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.
