My name is Richard Whetstone and I'm relatively new at tracing my family roots. On a recent vacation I was able to fill in some blanks on the family tree to trace my family back to my great great grandparents in the early 1800's. I would like to go back as far as possible and would also like to confirm my great great grandfathers participation in the Civil War with the Third Cavalry Regiment of Indiana volunteers. I have been a law enforcement officer, cowboy, farrier, car salesman and whatever else it took to keep a roof over my head and groceries on the table. I enjoy researching western history and spend vacation times visiting places like Old Bents Fort and the Custer Battlefield. Exploring my family tree is an expansion of my interest in history.
