I was born in Bloomington, Indiana. I was the first of my maternal grandparent's grandchildren to be born in a hospital, Bloomington Hospital. My family lived at 1417 S. Madison when I was born. My paternal grandmother, Mary Alice "Molly" (Tate) Gardner lived just down the street at 403 W. Hillside Dr. My maternal grandparents, William Henry and Altona "Toni" (Pearson) Love, still lived at the old home place near Tulip, Greene County, IN. I am not sure, but I think my family moved to Mount Carmel, IL in 1946 and lived there one year. This was 326 W. 4th St. We moved to Indianapolis in the summer of 1947 living in a "double", and on the other side my Aunt Bea and Uncle Estel Haywood lived. Our two families bought the house. My parents divorced in late summer 1952. Aunt Bea and Uncle Estel divorced before that, but I can't remember just when. (Dec 1, 2006)
My brother, Donald Jay Floyd, moved to Pasadena, California The first week of November, 1962. I remember that as it was election day. Then my mother and I moved to Pasadena During January, 1963.
While living in Southern California I also lived in Altadena, Arcadia, Monrovia and Canoga Park. I also lived a few weeks in San Gabriel. I lived in Southern California 25 years.
My father, Roy T. Gardner, died January 20, 1987. I inherited his little cabin on Lake Hart (near Monrovia, Indiana). I moved there April 5, 1988. I lived at Lake Hart for 16 years. I pulled up stakes again and moved to Tularosa, New Mexico in October, 2004. I lived in Tularosa 3 years, moved to Alamogordo, New Mexico 4 years.
I returned to Indiana again, moving to Greenwood on August 23, 2011.

Hi Larry, I am sorry for the pitiful late reply to a post on Benedict Jarboe back in Dec. 2015. For some reason I did not do much on the family tree for a couple of years. I have quite a bit of info on Benedict and need to get it on line. Ben was born in Maryland and migrated to Hardy Co. W.Va. he owns property there next to Coomes. Most all Jarboe's went from Md. to Ky. Except Ben making the stop in Va. before going to Ky. Thank you for your post. I have the same linage as you posted. I've been searching for proof of Ben's father for years. It's the one missing link in my tree. Thanks again Tom Jarboe

Larry and Lisa are 10th cousins twice removed

it is so very nice to "meet" another cousin. I want to thank you for checking and working on the merges so quickly. It makes it so much easier to get them settled. i appreciate that you are right on top of it.

It appears we have 117 common ancestors in the 25 generations it checks for.

Larry, So that you know what's going on, the Mayflower Project is adding a method of tracking changes on the first few generations of Mayflower Descendants. You will see "WikiTree-9" in the trusted list of these profiles. Please contact me if you wish to be part of the Mayflower Project.

Hi Larry

I hope you don't mind me adding a brief bio for James Dean. I did it out of respect for his legend & to include him in the Notables project. If you don't like anything added please feel free to change as desired.

Thanks for creating the profile.


PS William Shelley is our 14th great grandfather
