RE: hello again,

I found several UK steamship records that show the family arriving the UK in May 1928 and Sep 1931. Also a 1911 UK Census for Philip. Philip was born in 1900 in Argentina and Lydia in 1902, don't know where yet.

Margaret had a sister Eileen Rose born 1930. An outward bound recor for Aug 1936 shows another sister Rosemary Fay born 1934.

RE: hello again,
Great, thanks very much for sharing. I will put it in my Family Treemaker that way and let you know if anything else pops up.

RE: hello
Hi Laurel,

From the information I have our closest relative would be my 4th Great Grandfather Jacob Rhudy (1754-1817). Your line comes from his son George Rhudy (1783-1864) and mine is from Stephen (or John Stephen) (1789-1863).

Looks like Jacob is John Gaspar's Great Grandfather. So if I did the math right would make Jacob your 3rd Great Grandfather.

RE: Miles
I've transferred my two Miles memorials to you. Thought you might take what you want and delete one. Enjoy.

Reed Brazelton
Just wanted to say that there are now two memorials for Reed Brazelton but MINE, I believe, is more clearer.

Elsner Obit

I purposely added George Elsner's obit to Elizabeth's memorial as she is mentioned in his obit and I couldn't seem to find an obit for her. Thought people would be interested in what his obit had to say about her.

Thank you,

You are very welcome. I enjoy transferring memorial and having families together!!

RE: Christian Schimpf
Ah, yes. If I'd read John Schimpf's obit more carefully I would have seen that Christian was his brother.
I've added the links for the Royston memorials, as per your request.

RE: one more time...
Hi again. I think I've got the Schimpf memorial links right now. Do you know where Christian Schimpf belongs? Is he, maybe, a grandson of John's?

RE: Hello
Thanks Laurel for the reply and for the picture of Lydia and John Booth. No, I'm not related by blood that I know of. I am doing some research on the family for my 1st cousin. He's like a brother to me and I am working on his father's family - no relation to me. Thanks for the work you do on Find A Grave too. It's important. Take care, Dean

Schimpf memorials
Hi Laurel,
I've added the narrative information you sent to John Schimpf's memorial and linked Carrie and Lena with John and each other. If these folks are in your family tree I'd be glad to transfer the memorials to you. Just let me know.

Lydia Brazelton Booth photo
Hello Laurel,
Would you mind if I copied your picture of Lydia Brazelton Booth? I'd sure like to have it. Also, who is in the picture with Lydia. I was hoping it was her husband Joseph A. Booth. THanks for your time. Sincerely, Dean

They are 5ths for me, Laurel. Have a great day.

RE: Thanks Sharon,
It's all very curious. You and I synch up with Aaron West and Susannah Kellogg - my great-something-grandparents, and yours.

My line is from their son Francis, to his daughter Frances Sophia (who married Andrew Jackson Lewis), to their daughter Harriet Lewis (who married John Bonney). From there, its a straight shot down the Bonney line to my mother.

My mother was personally involved in getting Aaron's gravestone set up in Pekin cemetery. She and her mother and an elderly 3rd cousin (he was the one who got the government to supply the stone, based on Aaron's war service) literally dragged the stone from the old man's car into the cemetery and set it up there. I really wish I had appreciated such things back then, and had photodocumented it.

RE: Hello again,
Hi Laurel. It's a small world among those of us who pursue this passion of ours, isn't it? I've been reveling this week in the release of the index for the NYS 1855 census. I bet you have, too.

Hey, just a little's a lot easier to make requested changes to a memorial if the requestor uses the "Edit" tab on the memorial. I have learned to do it that way because I have seen snarky remarks on findagrave by people who manage LOTS of memorials, who say they won't make any change that is requested any other way. So anyway - word to the wise.

I hope you find out where Isaac and his wife are buried. So many people had a plot on the family farm; as the property changed hands, the stones weren't maintained and were eventually lost to history. Arrrgghhh!!

Have a great day. I have exactly 40 minutes left to play with my family history before I have to actually get ready for work. Sharon

HOney, I was only kidding with that comment. Of course you are a Dittemore. My memory is getting so bad and I thought you knew that.

Love Linda

Leaving memorials
I agree with you. However, there is no one for mine either and I worry about it. Or them. Maybe we should make a list of other people who work on the family and then talk to them about it. I know at one point I tried to talk to Albert Scarbourough, I know I did not spell that right, as he has a large tree but he is not interested. And I never ask how old you are but I am almost 69 so anyday now, well you know. What do you think?


Damn but I think you are a Dittemore are you not. See even my mind is tired! lol.

Hi there,
I don't believe we are related. My Spangler family didn't occupy Pennsylvania or Virginia. They originated in the Kentucky/Indiana area.

Mary Berger and Samuel Yeakley
First I want to ask you to give me you line too. I am of course curious. lol

1-Samuel Yeakley & Mary Berger
2-William Henry Harrison Yeakley & Mary Rebecca Cotter.
3-Michael Yeakley & Emily Elizabeth Wilson
4-Thomas James Yeakley & Rosa Lee Porter
5-Grover Edward Yeakley & Lora Edith Knight
6-Betty Yeakley & Clarence Doile
7-me--Linda Doile

Laurel, I have seen your name many times but had no idea who you were. The Yeakley, Cotter, and Dittemore families kept marrying into each other for many many years. Never too close but close enough. Please write me back

Berger family
Michael Berger Sr. & Mary Klechner
Michael Berger Jr. and Elizabeth Coile
Elizabeth(Married Thomas Dittemore)
Johannes George
Mary (Married Samuel Yeakley & Adam Dittemore)

John Coile was Elizabeths father.

I am from Mary and Samuel Yeakley
However, Adam was Thomas uncle and also mine thru his sister Lydia who married John Cotter.

To make this even more complicated, Mary and Samuel had a son named William Henry Harrison Yeakley. Lydia and John Cotter had a daughter named Mary Rebecca who married William Henry Harrison Yeakley and they are my grandparents too.

Have I completely confusted you now? And down the line from Elizabeth and Thomas, one of their decendents married into my father family in the late 1890's. My mother was the Yeakley.
