Lost - Aquamarine Ring - Alaska Cruise - 1989

In March 1941, for her 16th birthday, my mother received from her parents, a large oval aquamarine birthstone ring set in a simple gold band setting.This ring was was either lost or stolen on a Norwegian Cruise line Alaskan cruise in 1989. My mother never got over the loss of that ring, and would tear up every time she thought of or talked about it.She passed away a year ago, and until the day she died, she still wondered who had her ring. I would dearly love to find that ring and give it to her only great grandaughter who brought such a smile to my mother's face.

Lost - Family Trunk and Contents - 1940's - Arizona

Hi - I know this is a really long shot but worth the effort if it might gain me some info about my family!!In 1948-49 my folks(Raymond & June Lockwood) lived in Tucson.I was 2-3 yrs old.My mothers sister Betty Baker lived with us as her dad Joe Baker left for a job somewhere else & never returned.I know this is a lot of info but maybe names and dates will jog someones memory.My mother had in her possession a trunk that had been her mother's (Artie Zella Baker). Artie d.1946 in Phoenix. Mom and dad moved back to Phoenix but didn't have room for the trunk so they left it with some friends named Parkhurst and never made it back for the trunk. It had all the info about my mom and her sisters - June, Nadine and Betty, pictures a set of silk tablecloth and napkins from Japan with mind and mom's picture painted on them that dad brought back.I really need any info that might be in the trunk as my family research has reached a deadend. I would be so HAPPY if by some slim chance someone sees this who knows any thing about the trunk or its contents!!

Lost - Antique Pocket Watch - Oklahoma City

This is a pre-1920 Elgin Pocket watch. It has been passed down thru my
husband's family. His grandfather gave it to his dad, who gave it to my
husband and I got it as an engagement present over 30 yrs ago. It was
stolen in Oklahoma City in a home burglary number of years ago. The
crystal got broken and was replaced. The replacement is like Plexiglas. It
has great sentimental value. It is white gold. Recently, I found out each
watch has a serial number and I'm trying to find out the number. It was
repaired in the late 1970's by my great uncle.

Lost - Senior Rings - Oklahoma City

My husband and I both attended Putnam City West High School in North West
Oklahoma City. Our senior rings were stolen in a home burglary years ago.
Both have darker blue stones and are gold in color. One side has the
school shield the other side has a Patriot/minuteman holding a gun. His
would have the initials MTG and mine LDR. Getting both of these back would
mean a lot to us. Thanks

Lost - Haggard / Steinbauer Bible - IN - Home Movies

I'm looking for a family bible that belonged to the Haggard/Steinbauer family in Indianapolis, IN. My Grandmother, Amelia (Haggard) King, had it until her death in 1973. Then it went to my cousin, I have heard that she married and moved to New York. The Bible is very large. I only saw it once when I was 9. I think it had a hard brown cover. The family pages, I think, were in the middle. I know Granny said that many generations of Haggards and Steinbauers were listed in there - births, deaths, and marriages.

Also, I'm looking for old home movies my father took of our family vacations and me - learning to ride a bike, skate, dance, etc. The vacations were at Busch Gardens and Miami Beach. There were 5 or 6 reels of 8mm tape in little plastic covers. Some of the plastic covers were also in white boxes. The plastic covers were white and blue. I last saw them in a drawer of a dresser in my storage unit in Homestead, FL in the late 80's.

Lost - Jewelry - NC - 1991

WINSTON-SALEM, NC. Back in 1991 or so our home was broken into, and the only things of value that were taken were two watches that had been handed down to me:

1) a men's gold Longines watch circ. 1950s (a guess) that was my paternal grandfather's. It was inscribed with his name Gustav E. Friedenberg and was presented to him by one of his church congregations.
2) a women's platinum Elgin that was my maternal grandmothers. It was inscribed with her initials, HSS.

I hunted at local flea markets for them for awhile, but finally gave up--would love to get them back if they every resurface.

This bible was sold to an Antique dealer some years ago by a family member. The dealer was out of Portland, Maine. The Halliday family is from Scotland and settled in Sabattus Maine and later in Camden, Maine. Some names in the bible would be William Halliday and Helen along with all the children. The bible sold around 1925 or later. William Halliday was my great grandfather.

Lost - Class Ring - 1930 Ridgefarm High School - Illinois

Lost - Jane Wheeler Simmonds Photo - UK - circa 1915

A photo of my g g grandmother Jane Wheeler (married name Simmonds), in a riding habit, used to hang above the fireplace of her house in Bescott Street, Walsall, UK. Her grandchildren recollect seeing it, but no-one knows where it went after her death in 1915. No other photos of Jane have been identified, but she has numerous descendents who would love to see what she looked like.

Lost - Old Photos 1920's - Lost in Burbank, CA 1969

We lost two large photographs, both framed in oval frames with rounded glass. They were both about the same size, and as I recall they were larger than 8x10.
One is of a little boy with dark bangs and boots taken during the 1920s. His name was Harold Scheinfield and he came from Chicago. The photograph was lost in Burbank, California.
The other was a photo of an old Jewish couple from the area of the Ukraine. He had a beard. She had a rounded face.They were lost about 1969.These belonged to my mother, Fay Fletcher, and she always wanted me to have them.

Lost - Atkisson Family Bible - Ohio

I am searching for the Bible belonging to JAMES M. “JESSE” ADKISSON.

I am the GGG Granddaughter of James and Elizabeth HARPER-Adkisson of Knox and Fulton Co., Illinois. With great thanks to Margaret Adkisson BUCK and the original family papers that she put together I have continued research on this family and have constructed a website with all sorts of information. Several wonderful distant cousins have also contributed to the information on the website. The original papers I received had photocopies of pages from the Bible belonging to the James M. “Jesse” Adkisson family and included information on his other two wives, Sarah J. HARTLEY-Adkisson and Jane RANDOLPH (maiden name) CHANCE (first marriage name)-Adkisson. I believe that Jane Adkisson is the one who wrote the entries in the Bible. Perhaps one of her descendants has possession of the Bible. It is also possible that the Bible is in the possession of one of the following families or a descendant thereof: ADKISSON, BUCK, CHANCE, DYKEMAN, POWELL, RANDOLPH or related by adoption; SCOTT, STICKLEY. The Bible could be with any Adkisson descendant but may be lost somewhere. If the owner of it is not interested in keeping it I would love to have the Bible and preserve it for future generations. If the owner is not interested in parting with the Bible please just let me know so we can keep on record its location and if it passes hands. Thank you.

Lost - John Elliott Diaries - Ohio

My Grandfather, John G. Elliott, kept diaries for 56 years. I have ten of those diaries. The missing diaries were last in the possession of Newell J. Elliott and no doubt were sold at his estate auction. Grandfather lived all his life in the Wooster, Ohio, Wayne County area. If any are found please contact me via e-mail: -

Lost - Family Photos - Tennessee

In 1963 we were transferred from Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park in Georgia/Tennessee, to Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. The moving van out of Chattanooga, TN, lost one box in our move; it contained the only pictures I had of my family when I was a young child, including my father, who died when I was eight, in 1939. I have searched in vain all these years, not having any idea where the box might have been lost. It was a typical black photo album of the 1930's - 40's, with several pages of me - Alice Marie, my mother - Alice, two nursemaids - Ivory and Liza, and possibly others, made in Arkansas mostly. I would be so thrilled if anyone has found this album and would return it to me. -

Lost - Gerald Ford Autographed Photo

I am trying to locate a picture of my mother, Sandra Leigh Garner (formerly Cook), and former President Gerald Ford. The photo is significant because it is autographed by president Ford and (I believe) personalized to my mother.

President Ford stands on the left and my mother stands on the right. My mother bears no teeth in her smile and has long, brown hair. Ford is wearing a dark, pinstriped suit with a dark tie. A chandelier is visible in the upper left corner of the image, and my mother's head partly blocks a painting hung on a wall to the right.

The picture went missing sometime during our move in 2001, in the Washington, D.C. area. Please let me know if you have this photograph! I'm willing to reward the person who returns it to me! Contact

Lost - WEIR Family Bible

I'm looking for my GreatGrandParents family Bible. It has a lot of our family's records written in it. The Bible belonged to George and Lizzie Weir. It was passed down to different family memebers. My patrnal GrandUncle had it for years, living in Napa, California. When him and his wife passed away, his wife's daughter received it. When her daughter went into a nursing home in Napa, CA it disappeared. I think maybe it ended up in a salvation army or thrift store type place and I'm trying to search in those kind of places. I just wanted to get the word out just in case someone happened to come accrossed it. Below are some of the name that are recorded in it, but I have none of the other info that possibly is in it.

Lost - LISCUM Family Bible

This Bible was last in the hands of my Great Aunt, Rhoda Elizabeth LISCUM, married name HENDERSON. She was married to Robert Percy Henderson. Rhoda was born in the province of ONTARIO and moved West with her husband to the province of BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA. Mr and Mrs Henderson settled in Abbotsford, B.C.

Mrs. Henderson had this Bible with her in June of 1945 when she applied on her brother's behalf for a copy of his Registration of a Live Birth. She applied to the Province of Ontario because that was the Province in which she and her siblings were born.

The Ontario Registrar of Vital Statistics required proof. The only proof she had was this Liscum Family Bible. And it was accepted by the Registrar as proper documentation. In fact the Registrar, R. B. Wallace, wrote in a marginal notation, the following:

"Declaration by older sister, Family Bible records marriages and gives place of birth, dated June 4, 1945. Signed R. B. Wallace"

Rhoda was born in 1890. She died in 1961, and by this time she was living in Aldergrove, B.C. (not far from Abbotsford, B.C.) . The informant who signed on her death certificate was a MRS. E. (Elizabeth?)THOMPSON, living in North SURREY, B.C., and she was Rhoda's daughter.

If anyone sees this Bible at a flea market, garage sale or maybe knows of it's existence, please contact me. Thank you. Contact

Lost - Charm Bracelet - South Haven, Michigan

I'm looking for a charm braclet that was lost' in South Haven, Michigan. My charm bracelet, given to me by my mother, was accidentally left in my grandmother, Mary Spencer' s house, at the time of her funereal. Afterwards the house was closed and sold and the contents sold off, including my braclet. It was a silver braclet and two of the charms were of the Capitol building in DC and of a piano. It probably doesn't have any value except sentimental to me. -

Lost - Civil War Photograph - Alvin Collins

Some time before 1968 a photograph of 1st LT Alvin Montgomery Collins, taken in his Civil War uniform and from the years of that war 1861-65. He was a Union soldier. The picture was sent by mail to Carl Collins the son of Edgar Collins of Crawford Co., PA. Alvin was also known as Al and as A. M. Collins. The photo probably has his name and rank on the back. A.M Collins was in the 1st MN Heavy Artillery. I have the original letter that was sent with the picture - it came from a Collins descendent, but the picture was not with it, because the letter went to the father and stepmother of Carl Collins. I am the 4x ggrandaughter of Alvin Collins and the picture is well documented as existing/or having existed in the past, and I would so much like to find the owner of the photo and get, if not the original, a copy.

Lost - Trunk of Photos - Lathrop - Gonzaga University

I am looking for photos from my year abroad in Florence, Italy. They were last seen by me in a royal blue trunk that has my name painted on the side of it "Lara Elizabeth Lathrop" and "Gonzaga University" painted on the front. The trunk was in storage at Public Storage in Culver City California in 1998, and a family member failed to pay the bill and the trunk, along with some other things, were sold at auction, and I believe taken to a swap meet or rummage sale. I don't care about the other items in the storage area, just the trunk, and really the pictures. I would like to have them to give to my kids. My maiden name is Lara Lathrop and my married name is Lara Baskin. I can be reached at

Lost - Satterfield Family Bible - 1858 to 1964

I am looking for a Bible that originally belonged to Franklin G. Satterfield, who was born in MO, 1858. He recorded Births, Deaths and Marriages in the Bible, including the death of his first wife Harriet Birchfield. It was passed on to his son, George W. Satterfield, and was in his possession, prior to the time of his death, in 1964, Arvin, Kern, CA. His daughter, Opal, had photo copies of the B/D/M pages, but did not know what happened to the Bible after Georges death. Opal, my grandmother, passed the copies on to me, and was always hoping to find the Bible. She passed away in 2004, and I am continuing the search. Franklin's handwriting is very bad, but can be deciphered. I have the copies to compare with, if found.

Lost - McRoberts Kentucky Quilts - 1950's

I am originally from McRoberts, Kentucky. I am the daughter of Bill and Jackie Collins, Wanda Collins, and I am searching for any quilts that my mother made in the 1950's. These quilts were always made, quilted in the upstairs bedrom of Oma Brown in Choppin' Branch, and then given away to those in need or raffled for various school functions.

My mother passed away in March of 1982. She had moved back to McRoberts with her husband, Arthur Stewart. I am searching for any of these quilts becauser my older sister, Wilma, and I now live in New Orleans, Louisiana, and both lost our homes and physical memories of our mother when Hurricane Katrina struck our area last year.

I know that through the various generations, the quilts that were made have probably lost the histories of who made them, but it is worth a try at recovering any of them. I want desperately to be able to present something to my sister that would help her in the healing process of the devastation of the hurricane.

McRoberts is a small community and there are still some of the "old folks" who might remember my mother and her group of friends charitable works.

Thank You...

Lost - Woman's Class Ring - Griffin Georgia - GHS 1969

My class ring was stolen from my home in a robbery in 1985 in Griffin, Georgia. It was a GHS class of 1969, with an eagle on it-that was the last full year of the Griffin Eagles Football Team, later to become the Griffin Bears. The stone in the center was dark green, the school colors were green and white then, and the green also happened to be my birthstone. The ring was engraved "BJK" on the inside of the band. I will ask no questions. I just want it back. I was the first person to graduate high school in over a hundred years in my direct line, and I wanted to pass this ring along to my grand-daughter.

Lost - Silver Engagement Ring - Kentucky

My grandmother Ruth Weigle gave me her silver engagement ring that she had taken the diamonds out of and replaced with rubies (my birthstone).

Which stands for my grandfather's name to my grandmother's name--Don Weigle to Ruth Fairbanks. The ring has a center ruby with 2 small rubies on each side of it for a total of 5 rubies.

Lost Barlow Family Bible

My great grandmother died in a tragic accident. Her daughter, my great aunt Florence Barlow Causey, asked for and received the Barlow Family Bible which she took with her when she moved from Louisiana to Los Angeles, California between late 1929 or early 1930. This bible contains the names of the parents, Thomas Hart Barlow and Anna Rebecca Carterman Barlow and their children: Roy Dewitt; Florence Bessie; Thomas Ivan; Annie Cleo (my grandmother); Elmore Louis; Walter Edward; Warren Leslie; Virgil Frank and Forrest Harville. The bible also includes births, marriages, and deaths dates.. My great grandparents married in 1882 and their first child, Roy, was born 1884. The last child, Forrest, was born 1907. After my Great Aunt Florence passed away in 1959 in Hollywood, CA, her adopted daughter, Nannee Lou Causey Young, cleaned out her belongings and probably gave away the bible too. I am looking for this bible. Contact

Lost Beegle Family Bible - Michigan / Indiana

My father, Earnest (Ernest) Bennett Beegle was a patient at Alfran Nursing Home in Warsaw, Kosciusko County, Indiana. Alfran was located on E. Center St. at the intersection where Argonne Road tee'd with E. Center. It went out of business several years ago, and the site is now occupied by offices for the local hospital.

On 19 Oct 1973, while I was at work, my father was transferred by ambulance from Alfran to Miller's Merry Manor nursing home, 1630 S. County Farm Rd., Warsaw, Kosciusko Co., Indiana, to be near my mother, who was already a patient at Miller's.

I had visited him many times at Alfran, and his Bible was in his nightstand there. I visited him on 19 Oct 1973 at Miller's, but he was dying, and in the emotion of the moment, I failed to check on his Bible. He died in the early morning of 20 Oct 1973. Both Alfran and Miller's nursing homes denied any knowledge of his Bible, and it has never been located. It would have his name inside the front cover, but I have no idea what other gems of information might have been included.

My parents had lived in Detroit, Dearborn, and Dearborn Heights, Michigan, most of their lives, but had moved to Indiana in either 1971 or 1972 to live in my brother's home. There may be some notations in the Bible about places where they had lived. His personal data:
Earnest (Ernest) Bennett Beegle
Born 24 May 1884 in Clay Center, Clay Co., Kansas
Married Mary Elizabeth Swift on 1 Apr 1918 in
Whitman County, Washington

It would be a wonderful blessing if this Bible could be located and returned to the family. Contact

Lost Amber Topaz Ring - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 1972

Lost - 1920's Engagement Ring

Hi, I came across your website and I lost my third generation 1920's Diamond Daisy Engagement Ring on
July 7, 2004. It is white gold filigree, looks like a daisy, with a diamond in the center and eight diamond chips, one in the center of each of eight petals. It is likely Art Deco, Art Nouveau, or Victorian. It was given to me by my fiance, and was passed down from his mother, who had recieved it from my fiance's father, who recieved it from his mother. The grandparents and his father have passed away. The ring has sentimental value and is one of a kind. I am attaching a bad drawing. I have photos of myself wearing the ring, but the quality is very poor as they are not close
ups. I lost it in Los Angeles. It fell off during a very busy period, either in Venice Beach, Westwood, Bel-Air, or Reseda. I believe it was a size 7, slightly too big for me. I would be most obliged if someone returned it. Thank you.

Lost - Charm Bracelet

I am searching for a charm bracelet that was stolen from me in a burglary 3 years ago. It was started for me by my grandma when I was five years old, and finally given to me as an adult.

While I don't hold much hope that it is still intact, there's always the possibility that the thieves dumped it somewhere, and someone picked it up. It contained charms that my grandma added to it every time she and my grandfather went on a trip, and after I acquired it, I added to it as well.

Among other things, it contained my great-grandmother's gold wedding band, my grandfather's wedding band, a small gold 14k gold turtle, a cloissone hot air balloon, one gold charm of a girls head with the engraved date of 7/14/58 on the back and one of a boy, with the date 7/14/61. There was also a typewriter, an "Aladdin's Lamp", a heart, a totem pole, a Pasadena City bus lines token, a replica of a Kansas City, MO statue of a man on horseback, two zodiac signs with dates engraved on the back and numerous other charms.

Lost - HS Ring 1993 - Confirmation Ring - Baby Items

I lived in Belvedere NJ, Water St. around the time of 1994 until 1997.
My HS ring was from St. Aloysius High school and had 19 on one side and 93 on the other, it had a ruby colored stone and it was gold nugget. It may have had an inscription in it.
My other ring was given to me for my confirmation. It was a simple ring, had a pink stone and I think one or 2 diamond chips on each of the sides. Both rings were lost around the same time.
Julia's baby papers from the hospital, and her baby wrist band were lost. These too, were lost in Belvedere, NJ between October and December of 1995. There were many other things that I had as heirlooms (that were mine and my daughter's, Julia Drelich) Anyone with my daughter's or my possessions, please email me. Thanks -

Yarbrough Family Bible - 1977 - Tennessee

The Family Bible that belong to my grandparents William Henry Yarbrough & Annie Laura (Rose) Yarbrough was lost from the our family after my uncles death about 1977. My uncle James Wesley Yarbrough had it last. He & his wife Ruth (Brown) Yarbrough lived in the Clarksville Tenn. area, Montgomery County. After his death in the 70's, the bible was lost. I don't know if you can help me locate this bible, but if you can it would be wonderful. It has so much family history in it. I can't describe what it looks like, I'm afraid I don't remember it's been so many years now, but the info inside would be about Yarbrough's and Roses, and I'm sure a lot more. Thank you. -

Cobb Family Bible

We are trying to locate the Cobb family bible. It was last held by my great Aunt, Mary Doll Cobb. When she passed away in the '70's the bible disappeared. We don’t know what happened to it. One of the dates in it is Dec. 1861, I believe it would be the first date recorded. Some of the names in it would, Mary Doll Cobb, Dee Cobb, not sure what else. Her fathers' name was Pleasant Hope Monroe Cobb and her mothers' name was Alpha A. Lancaster. Hope somebody has seen it. Thanks. -

Funder - Schifftner-Concannon-Voorhis-Burger-Rowland Family Items - New Jersey

The above names are some that would be found in my mother's estate. The contents of her house in Franklin Lakes, NJ, were sold after Aug 2003.

Some of the items I am desperately searching for are:
1. Framed cross stitch sampler with the saying 'Let me live by the side of the road and be a friend to man'. I believe my mother wrote on the back "Catherine Concannon Funder". Catherine was my grandmother.
2. Cookbook belonging to Catherine Funder. I have reason to believe her name was written on the inside front cover(s).
3. Shamrock pig cookie jar and matching salt & pepper shakers.
4. Round pedestal, claw foot table and sideboard.
5. Funder family Bible dating from the early 1900's. My mother's name, Florence Francis, and her DOB would be in it.
6. Family photos with the names, Funder-Schifftner-Concannon-Voorhis-Burger-Rowland,etc, on the back.

If you purchased items from a house in Franklin Lakes, NJ, please contact me. There were over 7 rooms of furniture sold. It is impossible to list all the items here. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thomas Family Bible

I am looking for a family Bible that would have at least these Thomas members: Presley N (P N) Thomas, Isabella (Porter) Thomas, George Samuel Thomas, Fredrick "Fred" Perry Thomas, Sarah Frances "Sally" Thomas, and another younger sibling whose name was or similiar to Laurae. Fred and Sally were twins born in 1866. George was a couple of years older and Laurae was several years younger. It would problably also contain the family of Henry Heard Johnston (who married Sally) and their children's names. The Bible was last known to be with Sally (Thomas) Johnston of Johnston Co, Texas. It would really help with my Thomas family history. I have never seen the Bible. It may be with one of her grandchildren. But if anyone has come across a Bible with the above Thomas family names, please contact me. It would mean a lot to me. If it is in the hands of a family member, I would like the family information from it. Thank you very much.

1945 Bloomfield High School Ring

I am searching for my mother's high school ring from 1945 Bloomfield High School.
It is a gold ring and had the emblem of a bell on the top with the date imprinted on
each side. The last I can recall is that I used to wear it when I was in high school
back in 1973-1974 and that I let a "friend" wear it and then never saw it again.

If there is even the slightest chance that I may find it again for her, it would be
a wonderful surprise. She is now 76 years old and I would love to return
it to her. After all these years, I still feel very badly about never getting it back.

Thank you for whatever info this may bring.

Family Ornaments / 1993 Yearbook - New Jersey / Savings Bond

I have lost the following items in Washington, Nj. about 1997
1993 St. Aloysius High School Year book and diploma (with class picture)
Family Christmas tree ornaments (handmade with eyeglass lens and family snap shots)
$100 savings bond for Julia Drelich (my daughter)

The family Christmas tree ornaments mean the most to me because I made them with my uncle Jimmy before he past away. If I remember correctly, I believe there were 3 of them, there maybe more. I know that there was one of him, me, and of my sister. It was a glass lens with gold ribbon around the sides and gold painted backing. There were other ornaments that were with these that were lost. Those ornaments belong to my mother, she gave them to me because one Christmas I had nothing.

My diploma and year book were from St. Aloysius High School, Jersey City, Nj. I graduated there in 1993. The year book was black bound and signed by all my classmates. My diploma was in a red binder with class picture.

$100 savings bond I save up for my daughter Julia. The date should be somewhere between May and Aug. of 1997. I was saving for her college education. There were other items too, if anyone comes across them in Washington, Nj or Warren County area, Please contact me.

Williamson Family Bible - Tennessee / Missouri - Late 1800's

I am trying to find my great, great grandparents family Bible. His name was George W. Williamson and her name was Talisa Elizabeth Hopper. They lived in Hardin Co. TN and in the early 1890's they moved to Stoddard Co., MO. George was in the Civil War and spent thirteen months in Andersonville Prison in Georgia. I know the Bible existed as it is named in George's Civil War pension records as having a listing of their children and when they were born. It was published by the New York American Bible Society in the year 1876. The children are:
Thomas H.--born 1869
Emily Tennessee or E. T--born Apr. 14, 1878
Louis W. or L. W.--born May 18, 1880
Mary Marandy or M. M--born Feb. 11, 1882

Trunk containing family data and heirlooms belonging to my grandfather Fred W. Eikenberry. Stolen on migration trip from Missouri to Wyoming in 1915. -

Hamilton / Woodward Family Bible

I am searching for a long-lost family heirloom St. James bible from the 1800’s. It was well-loved and showed a great deal of wear and tear, having lost the front cover and some torn pages. It was last seen in 1952 in Tacoma, Washington. It was accidentally left behind when my husband’s grandmother, Verla Thompson (a military wife) had to move the family yet again.

The bible belonged to her paternal grandmother, Caroline Hamilton (1866-1951) who married Reuben Woodward. Their children were John, Ruth and Reuben. I am not certain how many generations it included besides Caroline’s, so here is a list of surnames it may have included: Huffman, Davison, Woodward, Solt, McCabe, Hamilton, Williams, Radley, Klataska (or Klataske), Yungeberg. The families primarily resided in Kansas and Indiana.

Siblings of Caroline would have been Margaret, Samuel, Mary, Emma, George, William (all born between 1850-1875). Their parents were Isaac Newton Hamilton and Sarah McCabe (married abt 1850 in Ripley, Indiana). Isaac's siblings were Nancy, Sarah and John (born between 1825-1833). Isaac's parents were Andrew Hamilton and Hannah Radley. Andrew's siblings were Benjamin, Joseph, William, Margaret, Stephen and Nancy (born between 1790-1804).

In 1952, when they called the neighbor to see if it was still at the house they had moved out of, they were told that all the belongings left there had been burned. We are desperately hoping that someone took the time to browse through the boxes and salvage this precious book. Finding it would mean so much to our family. Thank you for any assistance or information you might be able to offer.

Lost - 1930's Pocket Watch - Portland, OR

It was a gold (or at least gold-colored) railroad pocket watch that belonged to my Grandfather who worked at the railroad at the Union Station in Portland, Oregon before his death in 1934.

The watch had a locomotive engraved on the back that looked like it was coming towards you from right to left, it did not have a cover, the glass was broken and I think it no longer kept time. This is the reason it inadvertently was tossed out in the Goodwill bag in The Dalles, Oregon in the late 1970's during a "house cleaning house before moving."

I really regret that it was given away now, especially since I've been doing all this genealogy research. My Grandfather had relatives in Chicago, so it's possible it was an Illinois train watch. I think I would be only sure if it was the right one if someone knew it came from The Dalles. Marilyn

LOST - Daniel Hahn Civil War Photo

Civil War photo of my great grandfather, Daniel Hahn, that belonged to my
grandmother, Katherine Krueger, Chicago.

The photo is in an oval frame and shows a man in a dress Union Army
(Pennsylvania) uniform. He has dark hair, a mustache and has a sword. It was
thrown away in the late 1960's or 1970's by my aunt, who lived on the south
side of Chicago. Both my grandmother and aunt are now deceased. We believe
my aunt tossed the photo because of a difficult relation with her mother.
Myself and my 2 cousins, would like to make copies of our ancestor's photo
for our children and grandchildren.

This is very farfetched, but I am hoping someone picked up the photo and
perhaps sold it to an antique dealer, or kept it for a collection. Suzan

LOST - Allen Family Bible

In a book titled: "Ralph Allen of Sandwich, Ma." by John K. Allen,
chapter two, "A lost Family Bible", page 10 states that this family Bible
had been in the possession of Miss Ann Eliza Allen, of Mt. Holly, NJ.,
but that since the breaking up of her home it had not been seen. A man
named, Rev. William White Hance, had written to her endeavoring to find
the Bible. That was in the summer of 1923 but the letter was returned to
him bearing the unhappy word "deceased". This Bible was originally owned
by Jedediah ALLEN, of whom I am a direct descendent.

Now, I know this Bible is very, very old as Jedediah was born 3 Jan.
1646. And probably it has long since been destroyed but one never knows
what turns up in attics or what people have found at flea markets & yard
sales. Emily

LOST - Medical Book - circa 1895 - Louisiana

Hi, I surely hope you can help me on this one. This medical book was owned by my grandmother Matilda Lindsey who was the midwife in the community around Springhill, La. in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Matilda raised my aunt and my father after their mother died. My aunt, Dr. Vera Bishop Stewart was so entranced by the book that it made her want to become a doctor. She did this in the 1930's when very few women were becoming doctors. She treasured the book so very much and gave it to me around 1975. I kept the book and thought I was a good caretaker of this wonderful piece of family history. However, something happened to the book on one of my moves and its gone. I think it was lost or stolen in Shreveport La. around 1983. The book was in great shape. I can't remember the exact name, but I think its just " A Family Medical Book." I also think that it was published in Chicago 1895. It had wonderful fold out onion skin pages that showed the human body and it also had receipes for medicines that could be found in the forest or the garden. If anyone knows anything of this book, I would be forever greatful for the information. I feel so guilty that I didn't take better care of it. Thanks and I'll be praying that someone out there knows something of the great old medical book. On the inside page, my aunt hand wrote some information concerning how she came by the book. That is the way that I will know a book is mine if it ever shows up. Blanche

LOST - Allen Family Photos - Alabama

My Grandmother's sister remembers an oval portrait of her grandparents Francis Allen and Jemima Gotwald/Monican Allen that used to hang on the wall when she was a child. There are two surviving siblings and neither of them knows what ever happened to that oval portrait. They do both remember it hanging on the wall when they were children and they knew it was of their grandparents. They thought it was the Allens, but it could also have been Aloysious Small and Annie Keene Small, their other grandparents.
To my knowledge, the photo was last in the posession of our family when it was on the wall of Edward Small and his wife Gilberta Allen Small, who lived in York PA.
Jemima Allen passed away in 1903 and Francis Allen later moved to Ensley Alabama with his second wife Mary. I'd also be interested to recover any photos of Francis Allen, his wives, children, or his father John that may also turn up in a shop or attic in Alabama.
Hopefully the oval portrait was labeled in some way as to Identify it as my missing photo, or at least this message will reconnect me with any image of the Allen or Small grandparents in my line. Chris Buckingham

LOST - Kieffer Civil War Era Photos

My mother, who is 91, tells me that her grandmother, Mary Fuhs Kieffer, had two large oval framed photographs of herself and her husband, Frank Kieffer. They were Civil War era photos, and Mary had them hanging in her living room for as long as she lived, although her husband had died as a young man. My mom last remembers the photos in 1931 in the Washington Heights area of Chicago at her grandmother's apartment. No doubt when she died, someone in the family inherited the precious photos. We live in Canada now, and I have sent many letters to people with the Kieffer name trying to get copies of the photos, all to no avail. It's a shot in the dark, but you never know!

Between 1964-1967 my husbands Aunt Lorena (Morris) Newsome lived in Huntington W.VA and was in possession of her mother Grace (Wright) Morris trunk.

LOST - Landon Family Documents circa 1850's

We have lost track of some letters which were in my Grandmother Helen Adelia Hall's possession, but which she gave to someone and they never returned. There are at least 12 letters written by various members of the Landon family to their sister Lura Hurlbut, who lived in Elk Rapids Michigan. The main bulk of the letters are from Julia Belinda Landon who was residing in Spring Arbor Michigan at the time she wrote them, which was around the 1850's. The letters mention the death of a niece , the names of Julia's brothers Alson and Warren, their wives, children, cousins and acquaintances in Chittenden county in Vermont. These are very valuable letters and we would like them back for our family records. Also with the letters was a copy or original hand written Landon lineage. We know these letters existed because we have very poor copies of them. PLEASE will the "Angel of Letters" help us find them? Sincerely, Susan Lee

LOST - Barth Family Photo Album - Illinois

A 1930's-1940's photo album belonging to my mother, Georgia Barth, was accidentally donated to the Goodwill Industries in Illinois in late November 2002. Goodwill told me it should have ended up in the Goodwill Store in Champaign, Jacksonville, Springfield, Jerome, or Normal, IL sometime since last November and the photos may have been removed from the album and sold individually in one of the stores. The album was about 12 x 15, dark green/black pasteboard, black pages, white ink. In the back were newspaper clippings about a storm that hit Pontiac, IL in the 1940's. One of the photos was a child holding two squirrels. Mom is 83 and quite upset she put the album in a donation bag as she was cleaning her closets. It contains the only photographs of my older brother, so Mom really would like to have the pictures back. Contact

LOST - Henderson Family Bible

Am looking for a lost family Bible: Family name is Henderson, John W. and Eunice Vianna Ogle are the parents - married April 20, 1879 in Missouri. Children: Charles H. b 11-8-1879, William Orel b. 3-26-1881, Franklin Edwin b. 12-23-1883, Ralph Millard b. 2-24-1886, Sereno Morton b. 1-11-1889, Ethel Alma b. 4-21-1891 and Raymond Erec b. 10-14-1893. I am a daughter of Raymond and the bible was given to Ethel shortly before she moved to California to live with her daughter. Ethel and her daughter are both now deceased and we have not been able to locate the bible. William's name was Brees and he changed it to Henderson for a short time after a fight where he thought he had killed a man. Later, in about 1895, he found that the man had not died and then changed his name back to Brees. I would love to find this bible and share it with other family members. Maxine L. Brees Hall

LOST - Wolenec Family Bible

I found your website and hope that you can help me retrieve my fathers Bible. It is approximately 6" x 8" bound in black faux leather. It was inscribed Myron Wolenec on the cover. It was inadvertantly donated to the First United Methodist Church in Madison (or Middleton) Wisconsin around 1993. I called them but their process is to put donated Bibles in a box and let people take them at will. It is probably not in very good condition now - but it did belong to my father. Thank you for any help you can give. Glenn Wolenec

We are desperately trying to find who bought the bible. It was rather large....3 inches thick, about 12x12. It had many names such as TENNETT & VINCENT. It was brought over from England in 1881.

LOST - Blue Topaz Ring

13 years ago I lost a ring passed down to me from my grandparents. It had a large blue topaz stone in the middle, 3 small diamonds on each side of the stone. The ring itself was very detailed and quite fragile. We called the ring a three 3 generation because the stone came from my parents, the diamonds from my grandfather and the ring itself from my grandmother and from her mother. A few days before I received the ring both my grandparents passed away. I have pictures and proof of ownership. It fell out my pocket and was picked up by someone, but no one turned it in. I filed a report to no avail. Please, if you have something close to this let me know. Thank you - Pat

LOST - Mitchell Bible

I am looking for a Mitchell Family Bible that was last in the possession of Fred Mitchell and Estelle Terhune in Northern New Jersey, possibly East Orange. Fred Mitchell was my great-grandmother's brother. Fred & Estelle did not have any children.When they passed away the bible would have been with their belongings and passed down to her nephew in the Terhune family. We lost contact with him. I am not sure of the exact age of the bible. There were 2 Mitchell bibles. Fred Mitchell gave one to my mother (daughter of Charles Mitchell Kuhn and Bernice McCreedy), and told her the other would go to her upon his death. The one I have is a gift from the Right Reverand Richard, Lord Bishop of Peterboro, England. The family entries start with the family of John Mitchell (1784), son of Nathaniel Mitchell & Nancy Stephenson, and his wife Anna Plumer (1785), daughter of William Plumer & Catherine McAllister. We would appreciate any information on the other bible. Sharyl D'Agostino

LOST - Evans Genealogy Book

I have a very large collection of correspondence between my great uncle and relatives regarding an EVANS family history.. This material is letters and cards dated as far back as the 1930's, seeking family pictures and information. Most of the people he wrote to were around the Schuylkill County, Pa area, as that was where he grew up. In these letters, he advised them over the years of the progress of the work and in the later 1940's he informed them the book was "with the printer in Bristol." I do not know if this would have been Bristol, VA or TN, but I have not been able to locate the work at any printer in those two cities. He informed relatives that the book contained over 300 pages of written material as well as about 300 pages of pictures. Some of the family lines were TIPTON, MILES, ROSENFELDER, YARNALL, HESSER, FLACK, GREENER and COOPER. His immediate family says they know he worked on these project for years, but have no idea what happened to it after he sent it to the printer. My guess would be that my uncle died during the time the printer had the material, so I don't know if it may have actually been printed but never picked up by him.
Maybe the printer went out of business and the contents of the business auctioned off and it is out there somewhere. So many years of his life went into this project and I keep hoping it will turn up. Mrs. Jim Roan


LOST - O'Hara Family Bible

Mary Ann passed the bible on to her daughter, Mary Near Dickerson b. 1880 in Ontario, Canada d. in Detroit, Michigan. I only know a nickname for her husband, Parvis O'Hara b. 1811 Ireland. Catherine was b. 1816 in Ireland. Any help in finding this bible would be greatly appreciated. Catherine was my gggrandmother. Contact me

LOST - Lamb Family Bible

Lot LAMB purchased the family Bible of his father and mother at Richard LAMB's estate sale in 1844, Randolph County, North Carolina. Lot had married his 1st cousin, Asenath LAMB, and they emigrated to Hendricks County, Indiana in 1846, but Lot died along the way, somewhere in Kentucky. The Bible was passed to their son, Stewart LAMB and to his oldest daughter, Emma Jewell LAMB (my great grandmother). Emma Jewell married Willaim Nelson FISCUS and they moved to Iowa and later, circa 1921-1922, to Salem, Marion County, Oregon. I have a letter from my great aunt that confirms that the Bible was in Emma Jewell LAMB FISCUS's possession when she moved to Oregon. Unfortunately, no one tried to keep track of the Bible after Emma's death in 1928 (?). Her husband died at the home of their son, Adam FISCUS, in Van Nuys, California, in 1947. The Bible is lost, and no one in the family seems to know what happened to it. It probably contains the surname of Richard LAMB's wife, Ellen. The Quaker records that might have contained her name were burned. Thank you for reading this. Pamela (Fiscus) Hatch

LOST - Davis Family Bible - 1950's

In the 1950's, I was going to Sunday School one morning and told my Dad that I did not have a bible. He let me use his bible, a family bible, to take to church. I left the bible at the church. It was a few days, I think, before I told him. We went back to the church and they searched in the Lost & Found and did not turn it up I think possibly another child picked it up. Otherwise, why would someone not turn it in to the Pastor ? The bible would be for Wilsie Marlin Davis and Mary Julia Davis. His father would be Henry Emerson Davis and Melissa Ann Paulk(Waters)Davis. I have names, etc of siblings for verification. Bible was lost in Auburndale, Florida - Elizabeth Angus

LOST - Ervin / Scott Family Bible

I would like to find my grandmother's family Bible. Her name was Eliza Scott Ervin. When I was a child in the 1940's my father had the Bible and loaned it to his uncle, Joseph Scott. He never returned it to my father. Joseph died and the Bible was still in his house that was then occupied by his daughter, Ethyl Scott Yungeberg. When she died her son Carl Yungeberg sold everything in the house. Carl is now living in a nursing home and does not have the Bible. Family names that would possibly be in the Bible are, Andrew Scott, Sarah Miller Scott, Thomas Ervin, Charles Ervin, etc. Thank you for any help you are able to give me.

LOST - Kennett / O'Bryant Diary - 1969

I am looking for my personal diary which was left in a trunk of many other personal belongings in Bryant, Illinois in 1969. My maiden name is Kennett, but I was married to John O'Bryant, Bryant, Ill. at the time. I was a WAVE in the Navy then, and I had my trunk shipped to Bryant, Ill. Unfortunately, I never went back, and I was never able to get the trunk shipped to me. I am hoping that perhaps the trunk and it's contents may have been sold to a flea market, etc. and my diary may be out there somewhere. I also had many photos in the trunk, along with navy uniforms, and other belongings. I would be so pleased to get back something from this period of my life. Thank you...Arlene (Allie) Kennett

LOST - Ford / Salisbury Family Bible

Searching for lost family bible that may be under the name of Ford, or Salisbury. Last location was Little Falls , New York. This bible was viewed by family members who are now deceased, my mother included. This bible contains information that will allow us to continue tracing our family tree. We are particularly looking for the name of the mother of Derinda or Mirenda Eigenbroad Ford. who was borne illegitimately on Aug.8th,1827. Her baptismal record is on file in the Dutch Reformed Church in the town of Minden, Montgomery County, New York. Her recognised father was David Eigenbroad who attended the baptisim. Derinda was raised by Amanda Ford Eldridge who may have been her mother but, if not, surely her aunt. If we can locate the information contained in this bible it will also give us the name of Derinda's grandmother whom we believe, but lack the proof, was a Salisbury from a Connecticut lineage. We would be happy to take ownership of this bible have it preserved, and the family line updated if the present owners are willing to part with the bible. We can document our line back to the original Fords. However we would just like to view or receive a copy of the information it contains. Mabelle Burke Fernandez 3x's great granddaughter of Derinda Eigenbroad Ford who was married to James Burke. Contact me

LOST - 1965 Vacaville HS Class Ring

I often wonder if anyone has ever come accross my class ring that was accidently dropped on the shore of Lake Berryessa near Vacaville, CA. It would say Vacaville HS and my initials are KC (which were on it). It was from class of 1965. My boyfriend at the time who has since passed away was tossing it to me from the lake so it wouldn't get lost while he swam. Of course he dropped the darn thing and we never found it. I'd love to get it back. Kristin Chandler

LOST - Sutton Family Bible

The Sutton Family Bible that I am looking for was given to my uncle Robert Vester Sutton by his mother; my grandmother; Rebecca Matthews Pridy Sutton. My uncle died in Medford, Oregon on June 16, 1947. His occupation was a chef and he was married to Edith Pearl Sutton whom he perceded. The only thing that I ever heard anyone talk about is that the Bible in question contained a lot of Sutton family history.

LOST - Parker / Henry Hooper Family Bible

My aunt and I have been searching for a family Bible. These are the people I am related to.

My paternal grandmother was Arizona Elvira Parker who married George Ransom Owen. She was from Jackson County NC and he was from Satolah, Rabun Co. GA. She was born 1901 and he was born 1889. Her parents were Sylvannus Bryson Parker "Van" and Cumila Henry. Cumila died in 1964. Cumilla's parents were Alexander Jade Henry (and I've seen it as Yade and pronounced E-yade)born in 1842, 1847 or 1849, I've seen them all. Jade's mother was Arta Elvira Hooper. (I've seen her name switched and mispelled a few times: Elvira Arta, Artie etc.) It's pronounced Arty. Her parents were Thomas and Cinthy Hooper . I am still uncertain of Jade's parents, but I have his picture. I saw in a family Bible, now lost since my Great Uncle Bill Parker died in 1978, that we trace that line back to the great patriot, Patrick Henry. My cousin, Bill's nephew whose mother was a Parker, says it isn't so, but my Aunt Lynn (b. 1919) says she knows it it true as she used to go to the Henry reunions. The Bible page listed as follows: Cumilla Elizabeth Henry Alexander "Jade" Henry Alexander Henry Patrick Henry. The dilemma is I read that Patrick's son Alexander had no children. I've even read sometimes that he was not married, but I think he was married. I got an e-mail recently that tells me the Jackson County Historical Society has a Newsletter. In Volume 2, Jade Henry and his wife Arta appear at the Henry Family reunion with some of their children. The picture is ca. 1926. It lists Alexander Spottswood Henry as his father and the mother's last name as Burton. When I have read that Alexander, Patrick Henry's son, was married, it lists first, Sarah and then Paulina Cabell as his wives. Jade's father was first married to a Sarah and later to a Polly. My second cousin said we were not descended from Alexander Spottswood Henry nor Patrick Henry and I've been searching for the proof ever since. Everyone agrees Jade's father was named Alexander, but cannot agree on Jade's mother's name nor the grandparents nor dates. This is why I so dearly need the Bible. I have grave yard information etc. and death cert. info for Jade (no parents listed there.) E-mail me soon and I will send you anything else you'd like to know. With sincere appreciation - LiesaAnn Owen-Swejkoski
