I have taken my grandmothers information that she began obtaining on the family and over the past 30+ years I have played with it and added to it and hope to one day be able to pass all of this on to my own children. I have tried to verify all the information that I have with more than one source but as everyone knows that is not always possible. I have also included information from other researchers, which may or may not be 100% factual but I hope to be able to make this more accurate in the near future.
Goodluck to anyone who is pursuing their search. I truly feel that ones past is a key to who we are here in the present. If I could go back in time I would go back to the 1800's just to live thru what my relatives lived thru and to endure the hardships and heartaches to make me more appreciative of what I do have today. I honestly feel that ones family should always be there for them and they should be there for their family.
I have added some tombstones to the virtual cemetery. You can pull these up by the names. So far I have included some from these family names: Wheeler, McDaniel, Dawley, Hartley, Belt, Pugh, MacDonald, Sarber, Booher, Harrison, and Uptgraph. I hope to add more soon.
My family includes:
Wheeler, Belt, Jordan, Smith, Hartley, Whitaker, McDaniel, Wood, Cory, McFarland, League, Strohmeier, Rafferty, Cole, Trimble, Stone,Drake, and several more.
My family members have spent time in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, and Indiana. Some have branched off to Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Michigan, and Florida.
I have met some wonderful researchers thru emails, phone calls, visits to the libraries and genealogical societies, and letters. The pictures, stories, and information shared can be passed on to others in the family. All you have to do is ask. I am more than happy to share what I have!
Once again, Goodluck on your research. -Cheryl-
