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.

John Murray Obit

Danville Commercial News
July 15, 1881

Young John Murray, of Tilton, crushed to death by coal falling on him in the Ellsworth Mines, Monday.
John, aged 14 years, son of John Murray, sr., of Tilton, while working in company of his father and brother in the old Ellsworth mines, which are located between South Danville and Tilton, a quantity of coal and soapstone fell from the roof Monday at 12 o'clock, a portion of which struck the unfortunate boy, breaking the left leg at the ankle and cutting his head, and it is supposed also, causing internal injuries. Although the attending surgeon could find no outward bruises to indicate that he was internally hurt, yet it is the opinion that such injuries existed. He was conveyed to his home at Tilton in an unconscious condition, where he received professional attention from Dr. Morehouse. He lived until 2:30 p.m., when he expired.
The employees at the Ellsworth and Western mines quit work as is their usual custom when one of their own number is fatally or dangerously injured.
