I was born in a small Kansas town near where my great-grandparents became homesteaders in 1869. After two years at The University of Kansas, I joined what was then The Kansas City Philharmonic, finishing my Bachelor's degree at age 24. I moved to New York City, obtained a Master's degree from The Manhattan School of Music, and was a freelance violinist in New York for 23 years.

In late 1970 I founded a non-profit record label, Leonarda Productions, Inc., (which produced recordings until 2011) and eventually gave up my performance career. A classical label, one of Leonarda's specialties was recording works by women composers: nearly 90 if them, stretching back to the 12th century.

Marnie’s biological father is Francis Everard Walsh: DNA connection was established with cousin connections through Frank’s/Francis’ sisters Vivienne (grandson Greg John), Ruth (great granddaughter McCloud), and through Frank’s brother Raymond’s daughter, Kathryn (Reeve).[1]

Hi, Marnie. Please see the discussion at Rosa-301 - . Questions have arisen that may be related to information from the genealogy of which your mother was an author. You might be able to supply some insight.

You added the BASLER surname to ...

but that profile needs to be fixed, because it has the same woman married 2 different men and having their children at the same time.

The parents and the sources are correct for the woman who married DAVIS.

But the BASLER husband married a different woman with the same name (but with a different middle name).

PS: I have now separated the 2 different women, see

Re: Elizabeth Thompson Crossley

Who is then listed as a father of the children? Also is what is the LNAB and how is the name Crossley being used? I will add Hall as a used name. Please explain why you removed Francis as husband, Marnie. What is the intergenerational mistake?

RE: Frances Darnell Wharton

Marnie ... I finally got to your entry back in 2016 ... sooner or later I do get to things as they resurface. I added research notes regarding probable parents for you to consider. I attempt to add what I might know to any Darnell that crosses my desk. I didn't know about Frances Darnell before your contribution but I do now. I'm looking for the day that all the Darnells get onto their proper branches and trees in our universal tree and forest. Thanks.

Won't be sure where our paths cross until I finish uploading my tree, but just wanted to say a quick hello as I find your bio fascinating and hope we 'run into' each other again. :) Best, Courtney

Hi Marnie -thanks for the info.

Thank you, Marnie, for your note and your suggestion that I could change the LNAB for Maycke Ouderkerk. I'd be happy to do that, but I can't because I am not on the Trusted List for the profile. You are the only person on the Trusted List, so you are the only one who can make the change.

After researching her, I'm now convinced that Ouderkerk is the best choice for her LNAB, so the LNAB should be edited to that name. I can easily see where the Onderkirk spelling came from, because the letters "n" and "u" are indistinguishable in the scanned images of some of the 19th century books.

Could you please make the change?

Thank you Marnie, for the lineage you posted on the profile of Richard Ingoldsby.

I might be descended from Richard and would like to collaborate on his line when you have time. Please see my profile of his descendant Antony Ingoldsby and his daughter Olive's profile for the sources I've used.

Thank you,


Well do I have a surprise for you!! I picked up this old Bible and found a whole page in the back devoted to Rachel Knickerbaker. It says she died on the 31st of July 1823. It was her's or her husband's. It is written contemporaneously with her death, from the sound of it.

I am fairly sure the Benjamin Perry you have listed is the same Benjamin Franklin Perry i have in my line. Mine was born in 1803 Tennessee and has a brother named John Jay Perry. I couldn't find any records from Tennessee but found them in Cloverdale Putnam Indiana until they moved to Missouri.
