What Season Is It, Anyway?
The long winter here in mid Tennessee finally gave way to a pleasant spring. Sixty and seventy degree days in March sure feel good. The problem is, it did not last. It started to rain and the temps dipped back into the forties with night time lows in the *s...

I'm Being Teased!
I found this reference last week, and it is driving me kind of crazy. Why? Because my Bowman's lived in Lexington, Missouri in this time frame. It's the four generation thing. In my direct line, I can only account for three generations. However, it's possib...

The Rest of the Story ...
A long time ago I blogged about the headstone of my great-great Grandmother, Sarah Ann Kirtley Percival Webb, here . Mostly, I talked about the difficulty in finding the stone we walked past many times. All of us. What I didn't say was that on that first vi...

War of 1812 Pension Records
I finally sat down and downloaded my great-great-great grandfather, Joseph G. Chinn's, War of 1812 Pension record. He enlisted at the age of 15 served three months and was sent home with a wound in the foot. Knowing medical conditions at the time, I suppose...

Of Marriage and Divorce in Michigan
Ancestry has Michigan marriage records, 1867-1952 and Divorce records 1897-1952. Hooray. Found quite a bit and it has been interesting searching. First, I found a second marriage for Adele Kasten, my mother's cousin Leo Zimmeth's wife. Hooray. But I hadn't ...

Blessing or Curse?
I recently found a Union Provost Marshal's file on my great-great-great grandfather, Edwin H. Carter. If I had any doubts after reading the first deposition, the second sealed the deal that it was my g-g-g grandfather by  the name of his step-daughter, Carr...

Thriller Thursday? Or What Happened to the Rest?
Don't get me wrong, I am happy to have the obituaries from the Michigan Obituaries, 1820-2006 on Family Search. It has helped me tremendously.  It has also confused me. For example,  the following obituary for Richard C. Percival, an extremely distant relat...

Hooray! Missouri Death Certificates
I received official word this afternoon that the 1964 Missouri Death Certificate indexing project was complete. In no time at all, they will have them up and running. Yay! Copyright 2010-2015, ACK for Gene Notes

Clifton Bowman: Where Oh Where Did You GO?
Almost from the first moment I knew about him, I have been searching for my great-grandfather Frank Bowman's youngest sibling Clifton or Cliff or whatever. He is 2 years old in 1860, where he is enumerated with his family. In 1870, I think he is the "Peter"...

More on the Find-A-Grave Conundrum
Tuesday evening I was gifted with some information on Frank C. Christe (or Christie), the first husband of my step-grandmother, Florence Bush Christe Percival. I had found them on the 1930 census but not on any previous census. Or later. I suspected they we...
