    Ran across your ad. The picture of the spiraling “temple” has some misidentification. It is not Mormon (or, more correctly, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), nor is it the temple that the Prophet Joseph Smith prophesied (yet to be built). The one you pictured was built by the Community of Christ, a group that splintered away from the LDS church many, many years ago. Sounds like you have an interesting life! Cheers, Alan

    Thanks Alan! Readers, he is referring to comments I made in my report on “Family in Independence,” above (see under categories), where I share discoveries I made in researching my family history (McCoys) in Independence, MO.

    Regarding your post about the McCoy family history, I wonder if the research of the three women who compiled that information (Miss Eleanor Minor, Miss Margaret Woodson, and Mrs. Emory Write) has been continued. The grandfather of the three women worked for Waldo, Hall & Co., and thus they employed a relative of mine, and so I would like to see if those who know of the research of the three women would be able to provide information on my relative. Can you help?

    Thank you,

    Hi Brian,
    What was the name of the relative of yours? I know some people in Independence who are doing a lot of research on the people who lived there. What is the name of the grandfather of the three ladies.
