John Weir-our James Weir son
I came across John Weir's ( b 19 Feb 1856 d 20 Dec 1925) death certificate and it has James and Sarah as parents. His daughter is Ethel A Weir b 16 May 1888 and his spouse was Clara M Weir b 1844 d 1916 here on Find A Grave.

I didn't know if you wanted John Weir's death certificate or if you had that info. I'll post it on maybe Clar M Weir's memorial if you would like.?

RE: Greenhoe and Dreese
I was glad to help. I just sent you links to Annie's parents. Unfortunately I was not able to find any record of Jacob and Anna (Kline) Greenhoe's burials.

RE: thanks and a question
The information I have re: Mary W Staley is from her PA Certificate of Death #73927. I don't usually post death certificates to memorials. If you want a copy, I'll send it to you, and you can post it.

You might be having trouble finding Mary's death certificate because she died in Plymouth Township in Montgomery County, not in Luzerne County. Apparently automatically links Plymouth Township to Luzerne County, even though Montgomery County is clearly on the death certificate. I've seen this numerous times and have informed Ancestry about this error. Plymouth Township is about 2 miles from St. Peter's/Barren Hill Cemetery.

RE: NY Passenger list for James Weir & family
I agree that this may not be our Weirs. Also, looking further I believe all the wives on this list look to be noted as Mrs. I'll search out the Philadelphia passenger lists. I'm also on, I did the DNA testing and I'm going to have my Brother contribute his DNA as well. I plan on contributing his DNA ("male" surname only) to the Weir DNA Project on in hopes to gather more info.

Have a great weekend. And thank you for all the Weir stories.

Hi! I just added a pic to memorial # 96838168 along with the two other names on this stone. Are you related?

Hi sr/ks

It's been a while, hope you are well, I haven't been on here for a while, I've only had the chance to check on my memorials over the past while and haven't had the chance to properly message people.

RE: Thanks and a question
Dear SR/KS

The info on Susannah (Custard) Place comes from the records of the Walpeck DRC.

It notes (on page 56 of my reprint) that on June 28, 1807 parents William Custard and Elizabeth Van Campen baptised Susannah, who was born on 12 Jan, 1805. (On the same date they also baptised Sarah, born 18 Feb, 1807.)

You are so welcome! My "story" is both sad and happy, as most Adoption situations seem to be! I now know my Grandson and Great Granddaughter, but sadly, not my daughter. I read all of your postings about your interesting families. You are a very good writer, and I "felt" every moment with you! Happy Mother's Day to you as well! Janet.

RE: My mistake, hope we can fix nicely
Hi, No problem

Sorry for the delay, I just had a pacemaker installed so I have been offline a while.

I transferred Percival Sr. info to my file, but you also duplicated his wife Agnes Louise Kern Fenstermacher Memorial# 99613899. My memorial is: # 87369883 for her - same info is in both.

May wish to alter their son Roberts mother link before clearing out Memorial# 99613899 as it sometimes locks in limbo.

Mistakes happy, no worries. Thanks JMartin

A Question About Morris Ettinger
Yes, isn't that a completely wonderful photo? I love it. I have left you a note on the edit tab of one of the Ettinger memorials you manage. That note contains my email address. Would you mind sending me an email and I will happily tell you everything I know about this man. Thanks for writing.---bluebell

Don't let this person tell you what to do, she is everyone's cousin on earth, just ask her.

RE: Phil is yours...
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I would really hope that your Grandpa got the chance to know my uncle---and vice versa because your Grandpa sounds like a really great guy too (and I'm sure they would have gotten along very well)! I guess it would also "connect us" in a small way! You could never imagine how wonderful my uncle was and how very lucky we were to have him as such a special part of our family! By the way, I'm truly happy that you got the chance to know your Grandpa and experience his love for you (which will never end)! I just added a picture to the memorial---just in case you would like to see it!

Thank you so much once again!

Thanks for the information about Jacob Bennett's death. Very interesting. Will add to narrative on this site.

Suzanne Moore PhD
According to my father, now deceased, Kitty was adopted by his Uncle who lived in Oneida. My father called her Kitty. I have nothing more than his recollection of her as a well-mannered youngster. I know nothing further about her or the Bennett family.

Family Loving

Iam very sorry to tell you, but according to Find A Grave rules, your memorial listed in the subject line has to be taken down.
You have done a very good job, but if you go to the memorial number at the heading of this note you will see that this memorial was created first.

I created neither of these , but rules are rules ,

Many thanks
Thinking of you & the many, many flowers you have left for my loved ones. I am forever grateful for your kindness. I do not visit this site often as it has not helped the healing process for me, but I thank you for letting me know you care by stopping by to visit.

Again, thank you so very much!
