Just some info:

Please keep in mind that I have lots of time and money invested in this project. Many of the names are family members... some a few (not usually very far) generations down the line. Others are names in my husband's family, brothers-in-laws families and my sons-in-laws families and daughter-in-laws families. Some are related to others in my family tree but not directly to me. All information I have personally gathered. I did not use any information from the Mormon Church's many sites. I have researched everything. Most photos belong to me directly, except the ones that I have given credit too.

My family lines are (note: the * are in my family tree {I still have many to mark.}) Jones, Pugh, Knowles, Prothero, Painter, Owens, Nash, Albright, Watkins, Hall, Edgerton, Willoughby, Draper, Charinsky, Aikin, Moore, Meers, Morgan, DalValley (DalVallee), Monson, Klaman, Breeden, Dora, Russell, Williamson, Arnold, Chism, Siddell, Weindenburner, Gill, Ames, Wallis, Chantos, Keller, Davis, Wilcox, Cox, Pate, Gruber, Palmer, Sullivan, Douthit, West, Butler, Reese, Balsley, Smallcomb and the list goes on.

Some folks, on this blog, are friends or friends' parents. Others are individuals that are on the same page as one of my family.

I am willing to do research for others, however I do charge for extensive research and for the cost of research items. To check in some of our local cemetery records they do charge. Birth and Death records also cost. Before I do that search I will require a deposit in my paypal account. Please ask ahead if I will be charged to help you. Also all of the articles I have, I have paid to make copies of .

Give me a Shout-out About Family History

I am not only looking for and posting my own family history, but others that I have found.

Blank lines means the individual is still living at the time that I post the article. I try not to publish any names of living individuals. This is not always possible, as some folks may still be alive and I don't know them. Sorry if I have posted a name of someone you know for sure is still living. Contact me and I will make their name a blank line.
I have the complete obit if you are related and need more information. Please state how you are related in your email.

Frank Aikin Obit*

Decatur Review - February 27, 1936
*Frank Aikin, 74 Dies Suddenly -- Was Well-Known Fruit Grower, Life Resident of County. -- Frank Aikin, 74, prominent fruit grower and a nature lore expert, died suddenly of a heart attack while he slept in his home on rural route 1 north of Decatur Wednesday night. He was a lifelong resident of Macon county. He had frequently been treated for heart disease, although recently Mr. Aikin was in apparent good health. He had spent the afternoon chopping wood and doing chores around his home. The heart attack apparently came between 4 and 6:45 p.m. while he was taking a nap. He was dead when members of his family attempted to arouse him at 6:45 p.m. He was considered an authority of birds and flowers and wrote numerous articles on these subjects for the Decatur newspapers. Many years ago he was employed for a short time as a cabinet maker in the old Decatur Furniture Co. He was married in Decatur to Miss Laura Crockett who survives him. He also leaves six children, Robert of Hutchison, Kan.; Fred of Jackson, Miss.; Donald of Decatur; H. Ben of Pasadena, Calif.; Mrs. R.M. Stephenson of Peoria and Mrs. Stuart Mercer of Springfield. He leaves a sister, Mrs. Woodsen Gerald, San Francisco, Calif., a brother, Arthur Aikin of Santa Ana, Calif., and 12 grandchildren. He was a member of the First Methodist church in Decatur. The body was taken to the Moran and Sons funeral home where funeral arrangements were incomplete last night, pending word from the children **Feb. 28, 1936 Decatur Herald states the burial was in Fairlawn**
