Updated June 20, 2004

Edit Your Page
I worked very hard to get reliable information and then to enter that information in to the database. Please feel free to view my reports. You may find a family member you are looking for or you may be able to help me fill in some of my blank spots. Much of my information is from material submitted to me from others. If you find any mistakes or misinformation please contact me and I will be glad to correct or add your version to the present entry.

Through my Family Tree Maker research I have already made many contacts and extended my family tree. I now have over 2200 individuals on my tree. A special thanks to R. G. Scalf who also has a Family Tree Maker Home Page. I would also like to thank Mr. Ron Hurley for so graciously sending me a copy of "Scalf Family History" written by Mr. Elmer D. Scalf. Please feel free to view my reports and use them as a starting point. Thanks to Joyce Mueller Martin for her work on the Schuerg Family

Good luck on your search!

    When I was a young girl like many others I would go to the football games to sit and watch the cheerleaders. I dreamed I was going to be one some day. Much to the dismay of my parents and friends I would practice cheers, flips and jumps every day. I got the nerve to try out for my Junior year and I won. I won again my Senior year and then went on to be a cheerleader at Wharton County Junior College. Dreams really can come true.
