I will investigate this 'names the same' profile and correct if needed, adding sources. May 1; Bio finished; Bettie married her first cousin who had the same name as her father.

March 1: MULTIPLES: Charles Frederick Lee Charles had five brothers and on step brother; I will bring this profile up to standards by properly referencing sources. Charles is a grand uncle. Profile finished 2 May 2021.

February 22: POWER: Jesse Jewel Heath Jesse became a Foursquare minister after she lived through the 1933 southern California earthquake. At the time that it hit the area, Jesse was working as a clerk in Buffum's department store in Long Beach, California. The story that she told me was that the "bricks were falling all around and I asked the Lord to save me and that I would serve Him the rest of my life." She survived and went on to win many souls for Christ. Jesse's sermons were powerful indeed! I will spend some time improving her profile.

February 15: UNUSUAL SOURCE: Nancy Withers Judson Ball Compton Since I was a young boy, my mother would tell me that I was related to the Father of our Nation, George Washington, and to act accordingly. I grew up to have in my possession a family tree of sorts dated September 10, 1897, written by one J. W. Compton, a family relative, on The Brotherhood of Railway and Stemship Clerks letterhead. Mr. Compton had collected money from the family to investigate the family's relationship to a Joseph Ball, who died intestate on April 21, 1821. Joseph Ball was a very wealthy man. The estate was up for grabs as he left no heirs except for the descendants of ten uncles and aunts. It wasn't until 2012 when I joined Ancestry and started my own tree, that to my surprise, Mr. Compton's tree was not completely correct and I wasn't and 8th cousin of dear old George. However the first several generations were correct and that is what I used to get my start in genealogy. My goal for this challenge is to find this John W. Compton and connect my line to him. I think that he would like to know he was wrong! I will begin by adding his mother, Nancy Withers Judson Ball Compton to WikiTree.

February 8: VALENTINE: For this challenge I will adopt the orphaned profile of Lottie Love and complete the bio.

February 1: IN THE KITCHEN: According to her grand daughter, Muzzy was always in the kitchen cookin' up something for whoever was visiting that day. Once, after the California earthquake of 1933, she moved to a farm in Idaho and cooked for the laborers. I've heard that not even Missouri fried chicken can come close. Actually, that is exactly where she learned to cook! I will work on her profile Ella Maude Hopkins Heath.


January 25: FAVORITE PHOTO: Richard Richardson Cruzen, a 4th great grandfather comes to mind, as the only image I have of him looks just like my brother! I will spruce up his profile and list the referenced sources correctly.

January 18: NAMESAKE: My middle name is actually Scott, just like my maternal grandfather, Virgil Scott Miller. I would like to know why he was given the middle name of Scott. So, I will work on his profile and maybe I will find out!

January 11: FAMILY LEGEND: When I was living in southern California as a kid, one of my favorite places to go was an amusement center in Long Beach, California, called The Pike. It was complete with roller coaster and amusement games, a very popular spot. On Independence day, in the dark of the night, my grand uncle, Jesse Glenn Harvey would parachute out of a plane, holding flares, into the ocean below near the amusement center. I know he was a minister, but let's see what else I can find out by working on his profile.

January 5: FIRST: America's first oil well was the Drake Oil Well in Titusville, Pennsylvania. It was drilled on my 3rd Great Grandfather's farm. The farm was sold to oil speculators for $5k. Oil Creek ran right through the property. Before it was sold my ancestors would lay cloth on the river's surface and soak up the oil and sell it in town. I will work on the profile of John K. Hibbard.
