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.

Hall discovery...*

*Last summer I made a trip to Tennessee and spent about three hours at the library. I was finding obits of various family members of my husband's. One thing I kept finding in common was that there was a sister I did not know about. Well a half sister. I kept seeing that she was alive still.
I ask my husband and his sister, they thought and then both stated are you sure she is alive?
I told them yes I was sure she had to be alive. So I then called a brother of my husband and told him. He was so excited to know that she was still living and proceeded to tell me his fond memories of time spent with her and her husband.
Today, almost a year later, I talked my husband into driving by her house. It must have hit him that he wanted to see her. He parked the car, turned it off and went to the door and knocked. When she answered he said hi I am looking for Alice. She told him that's me. Then he told her who he was. My did she give him big hugs. She was so glad to see him. She now wants us to all get together. She told us about her children and all they were doing.
It was a good visit with her and my husband found out that one of his uncle's children is very ill and not going to be around much longer and that his uncle's other daughter has had a stroke and not doing real well. He was shocked that his uncle's wife was still living.
I feel I have had a fairly profitable trip this time also.
This just proves how important obits can be.
