My family originated in Georgia (mother's side) Hay, Wall, Cook, Gainer, Barber, Shrouder and Odum lines and Lawrence Co., Ohio (father's side) Allen, Ellis, Pasley and Sites lines. My husband's family came from Baldwin, Nassau Co., New York. His lines are Ellison, Bedell, Brambach and Schmidt. We met in Orleans, France on the first day of February 1960. We married on the first day of February 1963. We have nine children, thirty-two grandchildren, and ten great grandchildren. I love to sew, cook, bake, crochet, read, and I love to FIND DEAD PEOPLE. My husband passed away Sept. 8, 2006. We were married for 43 years, 7 months and 7 days when my love passed away after a very long illness.
