Judith Lee was born 18 Sep 1943 at Pacific Hospital, Long Beach, Los Angeles, California,[1] the daughter of William Flamer and Arlene Eastman. In 2018 she celebrated her 75th Birthday. She matriculated first at Long Beach State College, then for a year at Memphis State University, returning to California State University at Long Beach to obtain her Bachelor's degree in Mathematics. The college was forced to go to University status because of the stiffness of its requirements for many of its degrees, including Mathematics.

She married first James Hendricks in 1963 at Lakewood, Los Angeles, California.[2] They had one daughter. Jim was in the U.S. Navy. He died in an automobile accident in 1969. She then married Edward Clement Bramlage, Jr. in 1970 at Las Vegas, Nevada[3], who was a military contractor. Ed brought two stepchildren to the marriage who spent the summer with them. Ed died of a heart attack in 1976. After Ed's death, Judy went back to school part time and got her Master's degree in Business Administration in managing programmers.

Judy retired as a government contractor who specialized in computer security in 2005. Now working genealogy, around her health (as we all do). Specializing in a one-name study (Rowley, Rowlee, etc) which was inherited from Ernst Spencer and Tedd Rowley. See research coordination efforts at http://www.RowleyResearch.org, the Rowley Project Page here on WikiTree, the matching study on Rowley Study on Geni.com, or the third study on FamilyTreeDNA. She also sponsors the Eastman Name Study

In her spare time around the genealogy work, she applies herself to completing the series the Lady and the Unicorn needlepoint tapestries from the Cloisters. Thus far she has completed the smallest at 23 square inches and a 6"x4" side piece. The one in her frame at the moment is 3x5 foot and should be done before the middle of 2020. It was started in 1997, but put away for about fifteen years. She has four more to go; one is 4x6 feet.

As a game she is seeing how many Mayflower and PGM ancestors she can add to her profile, considering she is working from only half her ancestry. The other half migrated relatively recently; one as recently as 1920.

Digital Afterlife

It may seem morbid, but when I die I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up being deleted. While I fully intend on being around to manage all my profiles for the next 20 years or so, in the event of my death I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of the following slightly-active WikiTreers in family and friends, whether or not they are currently on the trusted lists:

Jeffrey Eastman (for all Eastman profiles)
Karen (Flamer) Herreld
Kathi Petersen (for all Rowley profiles)
Jennifer (Hendricks) Parsons
Jeffrey Kuhn
Jimmie Fadden

If none of them want the joy of them, then any other wikitreers are welcome.

Hi Judy,

Thank you for merging Joseph Rowley. I thought there was a John listing as son attached to both records, but maybe I just flipped over to Joseph's brother instead. I'll fill out what I can. The only evidence concern I'm receiving involves the relationship between Freelove Mills Rowley and her son Isaac M. Rowley. I am not in a hurry on this as I dragged my feet 16 years already. I have patience!

Good luck with your surgery and praying for a speedy recovery.

Take care, Lisa

Hi there, Judy!

Thanks so very much for your participation in the spring Clean-a-thon! Every suggestion you cleared (over 100!) made our Tree that much better. The WikiTree community appreciates YOU!

Not interested in the book. Thank you.

It was serendipitous that I found the reference to John A. Rowley Rogers among some papers I was ready to discard. Glad it could provide a source even if you don't want to buy the book.

Judy, thank you for merging Mary Gleason and Mary Pratt! I agree with the merge, especially since I am DNA-matching several individuals surnamed PRATT and several individuals surnamed GLEASON. Interestingly, I descend from GLEESON (the Irish Clan) but I apparently also descend from GLEASON (the English branch). This is consistent with my GLEESON and GLEASON matches. This helps me find my connection to all my PRATT matches! Again, thanks for the merge!
Incredibly great work during the 2020 Scan-a-thon! Our Tree has been enhanced by your efforts to preserve photos and documents,

The Appreciate Team THANKS YOU!

Jabez? My speculation is that William Henry is the son of Ezra. Has someone shown evidence otherwise! I'll check that route as well.

I also found that 4 Oct 1693 Shubael transferred land to his father Moses, CORDWAINER, in East Haddam. Is this the origination of the bootmaker story of WmHenry, a skill passed on from Moses to Shubael to Elnathan. It was common practice to send a young boy off to apprentice bootmaking to benefit the family, especially someone in the family who also had the skill. Elnathan lived in Colchester (@30mi from Long Island) when William Henry would have been a teenager. I'd love to show that Abigail shipped him to grandpa to learn the "family" trade!

I splurged on myself for Christmas and took FTDNA test. Only cost me one night in the dog house. The M-269 haplogroup that I share with the others on the group page is so broad, do you have more detailed data to compare my incoming results?

As for Van Ziles, VanZiles, Vanzile, Van Seyle, Vansyl, etc. I too started with Homer King Rowley's spelling and traced 4 different spellings of the same individual through several years of Church records! Thans for helping with my mistakes and I promise to be more careful!

As to Jane (Unknown, probably Birkett) Richardson, I have an 1851 Census that puts her age as 49 and her birthplace as Kentmere. The children that you had listed were correct as they were also listed on the census report.

Hi Judy,

FAG is Find-A-Grave, I am also a member of FAG in which I research and input true information regarding folks deaths, but sometimes I can add the wrong dates and such, from not so good sources I find. In other words FAG is not really a good source.
