At the University of South Dakota, I was on the Union Board of Control my freshman year, and I was President of the Spanish Club during the 1968-69 school year. Member of Girl Scouts from Brownies in second grade through 11th: 22+ badges. Order of the Rainbow Girls, Grand Cross of Color.
Honor Societies: Phi Beta Kappa. Alpha Lambda Delta. In high school, National Honor Society, 4.0 Club at Putnam City, valedictorian.
From an early age, these were things I loved to do: read history and historical fiction, solve puzzles and spend time with my family. When I was growing up, we always had a small bookshelf in the living room with several books including my mom's copy of Charles Ross Shultz's Descendants of Michael Shultz. Mom remembered that when the book was published, her parents received a post card offering the book for sale; since she expressed interest, they bought it for her.
Then, when I was in sixth grade, I received my class's American History award from a DAR chapter. I didn't even know there was such a thing as Daughters of the American Revolution.
I always was a little jealous of my classmates who could say with authority, "I'm Irish," or "I'm half French," or "I'm half Indian." I knew two things only about my ancestry: Gramps's family was probably part Indian, and my dad's grandfather was a first cousin of Abraham Lincoln's. So my interest was there; I just didn't know how to go about finding my own ancestry.
When we were living in Buffalo, in the summer of 1966, I found a library book on genealogy. I read, followed the directions, wrote letters, starting with own four grandparents and my great-grandmother Pedigo. They gave me names and addresses to write more letters. At the end of that summer, as my parents were moving to Kansas City, we went to Oklahoma and drove around visiting aunts, cousins, and graveyards. Gramps answered with the famous-in-the-family letter about me being descended from a monkey. But by the start of college that fall, I had my five-generations chart full.
One memory in particular that stands out is Gramps saying, You know, my grandparents are buried at Clinton. Mom didn't even know that.
It's now over 50 years later, and this hobby has been a continuing challenge through all these years. I packed my genealogy away when we went to South America as missionaries and didn't do much for 15 years or so. This is the time when Ramona and Mom found a great deal on their own. In 1986, after my bout with an earthquake, typhoid fever and hepatitis A, I spent most of my recovery time for two or three years writing genealogy letters.
And of course, after we bought our first Macintosh computer in 1988 and the Internet came along soon after, genealogy will never be the same.
Key dates: 1970, I joined the DAR
1987: mom and I went to the DAR Library in Washington DC; finds included Gilbert, Joy, Atwell, and James Alvis in Pike Co MO
1992: on my only trip to Salt Lake City, with mom and dad, I found my link to Ashley Alvis and Asa Brooks's birth in Buffalo
1993: Dad joined the Society of Mayflower Descendants
2004: after six weeks of study in the Dickinsons of New England, I deduced David Dickinson's ancestry
2007: I finally found two more generations back of Armstrongs
2008: I set up various web sites including a genealogy blog.
2010: descent from 20 of the 25 Magna Carta Sureties, from Henry VII of England, James V of Scotland, Christian I of Denmark, a full sister of King Henry IV, a full sister of Kings Edward IV and Richard III, cousins of all of Henry VIII's Queens, all five daughters of William Marshal, from Revolutionary War patriots from 9 colonies plus Vermont and Kentucky, from one passenger on the Mayflower, from a prisoner at Andersonville, from Daniel Boone's sister-in-law, from two convicted witches, from 93 Knights of the Garter (excluding royal princes), from ten or more early settlers of Jamestown, from one soldier who died during the French and Indian War, from one of the Green Mountain Boys, from one soldier who spent the winter at Valley Forge, and from (probably) one colonial governor of Maryland. At this time I have approved DAR Patriot ancestors from seven of 8 great-grandparents and from 12 of 16 great-great grandparents; one ancestor went to Kentucky to avoid signing an oath of allegiance to the United States, and another paid double taxes as an acknowledged loyalist. One ancestral family, the Barrons of Northumberland, came to America in 1800; all other lines appear to have been here before the Revolutionary War.
My ancestors were involved in the following confrontations with Native Americans: King Philip's War, the Nanticocke Indian War of 1678, the attack on Deerfield MA, the Battle of Tippecanoe, the Battle of Old Town (Chillicothe), the Black Hawk War, and the Sioux Uprising of 1862; one likely relative was scalped in Westmoreland Co PA during the Revolutionary War; and at least one ancestor was an Indian translator and trader. Greenberry Parker was at least one fourth Cherokee and an eighth or more Saponi Native.
And I have an ancestors named Lancelot (Todd) and Percival (Lowell)., , ,

Hi cousin Katherine, 😀

I'm working on completing the Mayflower Project Checklist on https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Howland-54 Joseph Howland. I see in the change history you added a note that he owned a merchant ship, but I didn't see any of the sources you added include anything on any ships. I have looked at his will and didn't see anything in the inventory or any ownership transfer mentioned. Would you possibly have any other information on Joseph Howland and his ship ownership that might not have gotten added to the profile?

HI cuz. lol

I believe we are related somewhere out there and on here it says were 16 degrees apart. I was looking at Alvis-2529 and then at her daughter, my grandmother Owens-4457 I see Anna Louise Alvis was born after her daughter. I also have different parents on my personal family tree software that Franklin Moses Alvis and Matilda Ann Helton are the parents of Anna Louise Alvis. On a image Of a obituary for Clara bell Webb Alvis It doesn't make a mention of a daughter named Anna Louise Alvis ( https://images.findagrave.com/photos/2015/153/18979070_1433359566.jpg ) . I have seen doc's that franklin and Matilda were in southern Illinois , but none putting , Clara, Oscar their Anna in southern Illinois to marry Charles Owens.

The Anne Alvis OwensFranklin Moses Alvis (1859-1947) . I have followed back both Alvis-2070=Franklin Moses Alvis and Alvis-1737= Oscar Rhonda Alvis and they do come from the same ancestor David Alvis (abt.1714-bef.1787)

If you see where I'm making a mistake or if it's a error in the profiles, I would appreciate your help. Thanks, Michael Schneider Michael Schneider

Dear Katherine,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team who guide new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team. Please let us know which team(s) you would like to participate in.

For those of you who joined the Project before the Voyage started in late 2018, we would like to invite you to consider a "fast track" Voyage, especially if you plan to join the Biography Team. If you’re interested, choose a profile that you have completed to the best of your ability and compare it to the Voyage Biography Standards. If you’re at Level 2 or better, include a link to the profile in your response to this check-in for a “fast track” review.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (When you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID). You will find more information on the GoogleGroup.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Hello Katherine, I am still pretty new to WikiTree. I noticed you had done some work on Peter Bolander. I admit it is too hot so my mind is a little slow right now. Has WikiTree decided to delete Peter Bolander? Or is there another Profile for Peter? I believe I am a descendant of Peter so I am interested in this profile. I am still learning WikiTree so am interested in understanding better. If the profile needs to be adopted, and sources added I am willing, Still learning Debbie Freeman

Hello Katherine, I hope you are well.

Please see the comments over the last four years, on this profile you created:


Is this is fictional person? What source attests to her existence and currently-connected relationships?

Perhaps you can explain why you created the profile, and then later, removed yourself from it. I worry it's a malingering non-person, or at best a broken profile. It would be great not to have this take another 4+ years to be resolved. Posting here on your profile since you originated the profile here on WikiTree. Perhaps you have a source in your private research?

Katherine, I noticed that you posted on George Bryant Cook's profile. Are you descendant of George or his wife, Nancy? My great grandfather was Albert G. Cook from Barren County, Kentucky. At the same time and place, George Bryant also was there. There were not many people living in the area at that time, so George may have been Albert's father. However, Albert is not listed in any of Nancy's family bibles and Albert has two possible birth dates, 1808 and 1813. If it was 1808, then Nancy was only 11 or 12 and if it was 1813, then he was born the same year as George and Nancy;s marriage. It is possible that George had another partner, who was Albert's mother. It appears from land data that Albert and George's father, Henry Joel Cook owned land adjacent to one another in Barren County and these were land grants. I have looked at hundreds of family trees and Albert's parents in most cases are not listed. Only recently has a few Cook family trees listed George Bryant as Albert's father, but with no sources. Any information that you can give me on this subject would be most appreciated. By the way, Albert's middle name was George, but he never used it, maybe George Bryant did not want it to be known. A real mystery. Thanks, John T. Cook

Sorry for the delay in responding. I just saw your comment today. All I know about Henry Carl Alvis are the dates and parents I have listed.
