A LITTLE ABOUT ME.


MAY 2022

Hi There....
Hope all is well with everyone.
Extremely sad news in my world.
My mother, Margie Becerra, passed away April 1st, 2022.
Mom was 104 1/2 years old.
She is missed so very much.
With that, I had not been transcribing as much as usual.
Been packing up mom's house and will be moving back to Ohio.
I finally got a chance to update Champaign County, Ohio adding 226 new biographies.

Still hoping everyone will get their shots and wear masks and social distance.
The sooner we comply, the sooner we will be back to normal.

On a happier note, Jim got a new dog.  She is about 8 years old and a very good dog.  She is potty trained and gentle.
She is a Black Terrier Mix and has one eye.
 

I am have been attempting to transcribe biographies in Champaign County, Ohio.  It took quite a bit of time with all that is going on.
I also take care of requests.
I have been using a facebook group's research list as a guide.
If you want to get on it, go to the following groups:
Northwest Ohio Genealogy Group
Northeast Ohio Genealogy Group
Central Ohio Genealogy Group
Southwest Ohio Genealogy Group
Southeast Ohio Genealogy Group

I found my long lost great great grandmother's name in a death index in Cook County, Illinois.
It had to be her as the name was the same and so was the death date.
I waited and waited for a reply from the court house there and it took longer than usual because of Covid 19.
I finally got a reply.  A certified document that it cannot be found.
If anyone reads this, is there possibly another way I can check for it?

I am Sharon Wick, retired and researching my family tree.
While I am doing it, I am putting things on this website to help anyone that is researching theirs as well.
Lots of work here.
I hope you all get good  use out of this work I am doing. 
I am sorry I don't always update this page as Life is so hectic with the Covid-19 going on.
I have been ordering all groceries on line to be delivered to the house, going to the drive up windows for medications and banking.
Using disinfectant wipes like they are going out of style and WEARING a MASK every time I leave the house and in the car.
I hope everyone is wearing masks as they not only keep you from breathing in the covid droplets, they also keep you from spreading it in case you don't know you have it which is entirely possible.
If you don't care about yourself, please care about everyone else.
Enough said about that.

If you need something transcribed, please contact me and I will do my best to get it to you.

A NOTE OF SADNESS:

As my former helpers on this website have passed away, I still want to show my appreciation for their friendship and for their help.
Linda Dietz passed away in June, 2020
She worked hard on Allen County, Ohio
Nancy Boyd Hanna passed away in October 2020.
She worked on Preble County, Ohio
They were hard workers but eventually decided they could no longer help.
I had no idea they had bad health issues.
May they both Rest in Peace in God's loving arms.
My prayers go out to their families.

My Research

I enjoy what I do and I enjoy helping people make their genealogy discoveries.
I myself finally found my great grandmother McPheron / Adkins' death certificate and her house! 
In August I finally found my Grandmother Adkin's 2nd husband's short biography.  Her name was spelled wrong in it but it is too late to have the editor change it as it is out of copyright.
I also found a lot of my dad's family.  It has been a good month for my research.
Wow!!!!  What an exciting find.
My mother's father passed away in the influenza epidemic in 1918 and with that was kind of a falling apart of that part of the family.
Thanks to my distant cousin, Paula, I have copies of wonderful portraits of my great grandmother and grandfather McPheron.
My cousin, Paula passed away in a motorcycle accident, May She Rest in Peace.
It just shows that you should never wait to ask someone for information as you just never know if God is going to take them from you.
You don't get another chance.
Again, I do know one thing, and that is... If you have a suspected source, pounce on it because from what I have seen in my own family tree, most of my sources have passed on to the Great Beyond.
Had I procrastinated, I wouldn't be as far as I am in my own research.
I still have several "Brick Walls" to conquer.
One is my Love branch.  The farthest back I have found them is in Lawrence Co., Indiana.
Another is my Earp branch.  The farthest I can find my great great grandmother Milly Earp is in 1853 when she married my great great grandfather.  Simon P. Earp assumed guardianship over her so she could get married and his son, Frank and his wife, Mary Earp signed the marriage license.
Simon lived in Shelby Co., Illinois.
I found her with her new husband in Linn County, Missouri in 1860.
And I also know she was remarried to her 2nd husband, George Leonard in Moultrie Co., Illinois.
and family lore says that she died in St. Joseph, Missouri
Milly Earp was also living in Macon Co., Illinois after her 1st husband died of disease in the Civil War.

I am also researching the Dunn Family along with all the offshoots like wives and anyone that has something special going on.
It includes surnames like Heustis, Gooding, Drake, Dunham, Freeland, Torrence, Slater, Sowers, Bowers and many other names.

MISS KITTY

Passed away August 25th, 2017
Kitty has gone to Kitty Heaven.   She fought a hard fight with her Feline Lymphoma and she lost.   She was about 15 years old or so as we adopted her after she reached full size.
Kitty loves to go outside and didn't come in last night.  Jim found her in the morning and she was already gone.  I hope she didn't suffer
She will be dearly missed.

BUDDY

Passed away September 20, 2021
Buddy was a very good dog.  He was Jim's best friend as they went everywhere together.
Jim misses him so very much.
First his hip went bad and then his foot.  He couldn't walk without falling ever few steps.
He cried a lot.
We decided that it was time for him to go to Doggie Heaven.
He is being cremated and will come back to us in a little box in which Jim will probably take to Ohio and find just the right spot for it.
Rest in Peace, Buddy Boy.
