    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

    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.

    Hello, I am sorry if I am being abrupt but my name is Dawn and I have recently done an ancestry DNA kit and it appears we are a close family match. I would love to see where we relate.

    I did send a message through ancestry.com although it showed you have not been on in 3-11 months. So I started researching online. It says we are a close family match. There is more to my story but I would rather message that privately. If that is ok?
