Check out the links in the columns to your right. Each family is (or will be) represented and I will continue to add more material as I find it. I have purposely inserted question marks where dates and places are still a mystery. If you, the viewer, can enlighten me, click on the email links - which you will find at the bottom of each page. I will make corrections as soon as I can. If you click on an active link...and nothing happens, that simply means I don't yet have material for that page.
A good introduction to each of Myron and Elizabeth's nine children can be found HERE. Written by Elmer Root shortly before his death in 1994, it is fairly comprehensive - and a good starting place to better understand our "Fruitful Roots" heritage. More detail can be found - eventually - in each person's own page.
If you do not find the person - or family - you are looking for, please let me know. If you can supply me with written information and photographs, I will cheerfully make additional pages with links to the appropriate places.
Below is an assortment of photographs I have acquired over the years from several family members. If you would like to send digitized photos to add to this site, please contact me for more information.
