Hi everyone! I am LDS and, along with my family, we are trying to find our ancestors. Of particular interest to me is my father's side.I have been largely unsuccessful in finding anything out about him.He changed his name before I was born, it was "Marion Looney".I have found him and his father and that's it.
Other names I am researching include the Emick side (my husband's), including Italian names such as Valerio and Vitale.On my side, I have Green, Scott, Hammensteadt, Lester, Madary, Phelps, Matthews, Van Horn, Koester, Ryder, Bullock, Kellar and more.
If any of these names match family you are researching, and these families are from or around Maryland, Missouri, Texas, or Germany, Portugal, or Ireland, let me know!
