More than 56 years of work has been put into the research of these ancestors.  Many of the sources for these names are from old books, my personal research or were shared by other researchers. There is NO guarantee of accuracy. This information is provided as a guide for further research only. I hope you will benefit from the information I have presented here.

I want to give a special THANK YOU to genealogy researchers that have been so generous in sharing their information with me.  If it were not for sharing, none of us would have the family tree history that we so proudly display.

If any of the information herein rings a bell, Please contact me at my email addresses below.

Thanks, Beth  [email protected]    or     [email protected]
Hi Researchers..  My name is Beth and I hope you find something of interest here that will put a smile on your face and names in your tree.
"Remember me in the family tree.
My name, my days, my strife;
Then I'll ride upon the wings of time
and live an endless life."    Goetsch

The Elusive Ancestor
I went searching for an ancestor.
I cannot find him still.
He moved around from place to place and did not leave a will.
He married where a courthouse burned.
He mended all his fences.
He avoided any man who came to take the U.S. Census.
He always kept his luggage packed, this man who had no fame.
And every 20 years or so, this rascal changed his name.
His parents came from Europe.
They should be upon some list of passengers to the U.S.A.,
but somehow they got missed.
And no one else in this world is searching for this man.
So, I play geneasolitaire to find him if I can.
I'm told he's buried in a plot, with tombstone he was blessed;
but the weather took engraving, and some vandals took the rest.
He died before the county clerks decided to keep records.
No Family Bible has emerged, in spite of all my efforts.
To top it off this ancestor, who caused me many groans,
Just to give me one more pain, he betrothed a girl named JONES.-

Just thought that was an appropriate
definition for genealogy research!

In Memory of my son,
Charles Edwin Humphrey  1962-2001

“If Tears Could Build A Stairway”

If tears could build a stairway, and memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again.
No Farewell words were spoken. No time to say goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache in sadness, and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you—no one can ever know.
But now we know you want us to mourn for you no more.
To remember all the happy times, life still has much in store.
Since you’ll never be forgotten, we pledge to you today—
a hallowed place within our hearts is where you’ll always stay.
My heart still ache in sadness,
and secret tears still flow,
what it meant to lose you,
no one will ever know.  2008

Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say

I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect in it's weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
