My great aunts, Bernice Orms Crain and Bertha Orms Maguire did years of reserch on our lineage, and are responsible for giving me the Genealogy Bug. I think I thank them.
I have many others to thank who have helped me in my research. To name just a few: my KIRKPATRICK and McELHANNON connections, and Billie Brem, Shirley Woodlock, and my 4th cousin, Mary Ann Odneal, and Cousin 'Mick' Maguire - all of the above are in Texas!
All of my research, all of my hours, all of these boxes of papers and certificates and pictures and miscellaneous collected to enable me to find our lineage has been done for my children, John and Jenny Markum, and their decendants.
~~~~~I am told they will thank me for it~~~~Someday.
