"The Dance"

Here are some pictures of my family. Some dated & some recent.

Our House & Family

I am a 60+ year old handicapped widow with 3 children. I was put on oxygen June 1999. Have to use it constantly, as my lungs are gone from all the pnuemonia & bronchitis I have had during my lifetime (or thats what the dr.'s tell me). I can't leave this house except to go to the dr. So I really do enjoy having this computer to work with, although I can't spend as much time on it, as I did before I got sick. Before I was on here anywhere from 8 to 12 hours a day, now I'm lucky if I can be on it for 2 or 3 hours a day, as I get so short of breath. But I have found some new cousins with this wonderful machine, from them finding my pages or having someone else finding them & telling them about them. I want to thank everyone that visits here and passes the information on to your friends and family. My 40 year old truck driver son and 18 year old daughter live at home with me. My 43 year old son lived in Kansas City, MO (this son passed away July 3, 2000 from a heart attact). I have lived my entire life in the state of Illinois. Please don't hold that against me. *S*

I love working on the computer, even though I am not very literate. I use it for personal things, love being on-line surfing for trucking, or genealogy links, or chatting in the nice trucking chat rooms. I have met some very nice people in the chat rooms. One in particular is responsible for me trying to do this. Her name is Flaglady!!

I have been working on our family tree for the past 20 years or so. Some of the surnames we have found so far are: Clair, Kells, Scranton, Beckman, Goewey, Poor (Poore), Heavener, Rouse, Jones, Phillips, Grammer, Newman, Tadlock, Skirvin.
