The biography for Patricia Menasco is empty. What can you add?


  • First-hand information. Entered by Patricia Menasco at registration.

I am working on several family lines. My father's family includes the Menasco, Eanes, Boren, Ketchum. My DNA will not match to the Ketchum family outside of William Washington Ketchum who died in Ringgold TX. A biological family is the Philip Palmer family who spent some time in Texas in the late 1800s, but moved on to Arizona in the early 1900s.

My mother's family is Geist, Maider, Leis, Walter. My great grandparents on my mother's maternal side immigrated from the Volga colonies of Russia (specifically Walter and Saratov), but many DNA matches also show the colonies of Grimm and Frank. Mother's paternal side include Hanson, (from Hoar), Sherman, Marsh, Rountree.

I am very interested in tracing all of these families.

Personally, I am a retired school teacher who loves spending time on genealogy. I also enjoy keeping up with my children and grandchildren. I do travel quite regularly with my husband, which means my travel stops often include meeting new relatives, and/or visiting cemeteries.
