Kathy's current to-do list

2016: I can't remember when I wasn't interested in my ancestors. My grandmother, Florence Burdge Stuewe, would tell me I was related to President Hays, Daniel Boone, and others. She also said that our Burdge family were Pilgrims (which I interpreted as Mayflower). My other grandmother, Sallie Dodson Armstrong, said one of her uncles (or great-uncles) did soft-shoe for the Queen of England (meaning Queen Victoria). My grandpa, Donald Armstrong said his relatives were from Scotland and snuck into the country because they were wanted men for being horse-thieves. If you're shaking your head, you know that as with many family tales, these were all pretty much untrue (although there may be some truth to the horse thieves part.)


1. A side family -- the Hall family (William Schrader Hall) in Rush County, Indiana.
2. I am also going through my watchlist starting at A, making sure that everyone has sources, a biography, and stickers, if appropriate. I'm thinking it will take me about 3 years to do everyone, especially as side-tracked as I get.
3. Working on my son-in-law's family, Gaskins, from south Georgia and back into North Carolina.
4. Data doctoring and trying to get suggestions for all my grandparents clean through 10 generations.
5. Quertermous (and other amazing spelling variations) -- working through as many as I can find and source. Trying to see how the families in Kentucky (and other states) are related.

Thank you for adding info to Carrie Gordon! I adopted her profile during a Source-A-Thon meaning to go back and research some more, and she fell through the cracks. I appreciate you adding to her info.

Thank YOU! Thank you so very much for the source data on Preston Jessie Bush. Richard Hooper

You are so very welcome. It was actually your comment that you didn't have any sources that made me work a bit harder in the clean-a-thon to find sources.

Kathy! Wow! I just located a long lost and disconnected potential ancestor of mine and it has some awesome notes from you... Can you potentially help me with your findings?

Profile is here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Mathews-624

I would LOVE any information you have on the family... It is one of my most upsetting and troublesome brick walls.

Hi Kathy! Happy New Year to you, as well!! I have one benign result and still waiting to meet with surgeons to find out what to do about my liver. I don't have a confirmation, yet, on whether those tumors are benign. I was told that the surgeons may wish to take all of the tissue, benign, or not, and my primary doctor is of the opinion that removal is a good plan. I have some corrections to get to here on Wikitree!! Thank you for your kindness and for your sweet email many months ago. I'm so happy to read your August update and that you are doing so well. Best wishes for what's in store for the year ahead of us!!

Thank you for identifying the candidates for merge and suggestions re adoption of an orphaned profile [which I have done]. For the moment they're marked as "UnMerged Matches as I do review and/or revisions. Thank you also for the kind remark....

You're what makes Wiki Great!!

Congratulations on your recovery progress! The countdown clock was something that came up one night and sure enough Tibbets was able to make it happen!  :)

Not in the least!!! thats why I wrote it like that. And yes, for every one of the over 100 profiles I've done, I've also done at least 4 more in the family, and relateds. If the source I found fits multiples... even tho not tagged UNS it gets added. Keep em coming!!!

Blessings and prayers for your continued recovery.
