Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy,
which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.
W.B. Yeats

This section features materials in the form of image files associated with our ancestors.  Virtually all of these items are or will be referenced in the Genealogy Report along with the proper citation of the contributor(s).  These include the following:

  • Birth and death certificates

  • Marriage licenses

  • Military records

  • Wills and deeds

  • Other research materials

I have decided against including Census records since they are now all available directly online - free of charge if you visit your local library.  The Genealogy Report contains the information you will need to access the images of the Census records.  If you would like a Census image, please contact me and I will email you one!

Keep in mind that storage space is expensive, so the images themselves are basically for viewing on the computer only.  If you would like copies of the images in their original resolutions, please contact me and I will forward them to you, thanks.

I would especially like to thank Margaret DeBolt, Mickie Griffith, and Lauri Lesh for contributing their extensive obituary and records collections for this webpage.

Research tip:  It it time-prohibitive to list all of the names that are directly associated with the records below.  Obituaries, military pension records, wills, and the like can include a host of good references to folks other than the primary individual.  If you are looking for information about a person and don't see his/her name listed here, then try a record of a relative closely associated with that person, especially a parent or spouse.  Our goal is to have all of the materials we possess up on this site in one form or another, but it might take a little poking around to find something you need.  If you need additional help, feel free to contact me, thanks.


Note:  Names in the table below are listed in alphabetical order by  surname.  Women are listed by maiden name, if known, else, by married name.  (The reason that the surnames are not in the familiar Last, First format is so that the names will show up using Google.)  There are tools you can use to locate an individual in this list:  your browser's Edit --> Find function, our Site Map, and if you're not sure of a name, but can remember a relationship, use the Genealogy Report.  When you open the file, you may notice a small yellow icon accompanying the page images.  Place your mouse pointer over the icon and important information about the file will be displayed.  All images are from the archive of Gregory J Winters unless otherwise noted.
