RE: Wikitree
You can look-up
and see how I've used and attached your information on Wikitree.

I loaded a work-in-progress GEDCOM (aren't they all works-in-progress until you die?) to Wikitree so that family could easily access/edit/add to what I have. There are several who are working on various lines but we all use different software. subscriptions cost extra to access countries outside of your home country and I am working with people from Scotland, Germany, Peru, Canada, and -- soon -- Hong Kong, so we all needed a common base to work with and Wikitree fits!

My main project right now is going through the TWHS Newsletters and indexing them. I'm almost to the point where the first iteration can be published on the Web (I believe the site it will be located on is the Then a call goes out for copies of missing issues to Index.

As I get "bored" with Indexing, I've been putting some of my family info on Wikitree and scanning photos and documents so the family has access to them. And, when I come across an interesting article like William Ebers in the Newsletter, I put information up and link with as many available web sources as I can find on the time I limit myself to.

If I don't limit myself I get lost in an Internet black hole.

Plus I want to get all this paper stuff outta my house! I may look like a hoarder to someone!

Thank you for all you do online.

Iam still looking for the gravesite of my great-grandpa, Wilhelm Raschke. He "may be" in the Paige/DimeBox/Winchester area -- but he only had a wooden cross when he was buried. In our family, no one living knows where he was buried.

Thank you for putting SO MUCH work into your family tree for everyone to share. I have included a couple of bios your put together one (a free genealogy site) and would like to know how you would like me to site your work and invite you to join to share your work and contribute/verify the work of others.

Regarding Grassyville Cemetery in Texas -- do you know which church maintained the burial records?

Can't locate your response for the specifics but if I remember correctly my tree is the Johnson Family Tree on

Ona Marie Haley was married three times: Roy W Lesher, Lee C Furnas, and John William Peake.

I think she did own a store with her husband, Furnas, but can't locate the info now.

Do you give your consent to usage of John's pictures on my tree.

RE: Cornelia Peake Mcdonald
Thank you for your interest in the page. I was not involved in the deletion of anything. I posted the original photograph of the marker on the first entry when I entered the Colonel many years ago. There is no need for concern about how my memorials are "taken care of". After consideration of your request, I prefer to maintain it.

Thanks again,

George Seitz

JoAnne, I am Patsy Stonestreet Day and I descend from Mary Stonestreet Peake, who was married to Humphrey Peake,Sr. Do you have any research on Humphrey and Mary? It is my understanding that they were close friends of George and Martha Washington and they are mentioned many times in his writings. Please share any info you might have on this family.

RE: John Humphrey Peake
My 2x great grandfather was also a surgeon in the CSA. I'd certainly get him a military marker . . . if I knew where he was buried. Sigh. Glad you were able to solve the mystery!

RE: Dr.John Humphre Peake
Good luck to your cousin! Hopefully, it is something that can be cleaned off. Do let me know if you are able to, I would like to see the result.

RE: Dr.John Humphre Peake
That was the reason I went ahead and added the photo even though the memorial already had one. The picture was taken the first week of August last year, 2014, when we passed through El Paso driving from the Houston area to Phoenix, where we live.

RE: Billings name
I don't have a DeWitt Billings in my records. Seems logical, there's got to be a link there somewhere. It seems like several Billings settled in the area.

William Samuel Billings family was in MO between 1870 and 1895. Did you try the census records? I do have Anson Joel Billings and Orlando Billings with showing deaths in Wyaconda, Clark County, MO, but they are based on trees so they would need to be verified. They were siblings to William.

Peake Family
Thank you so much for your reply!
By the time the PEAKES moved to Polk County GA
In the 1830s they had evolved into Peek.
My lineage connects up to Captain John Peake through public and DAR records but I am always searching for more and
Accurate data and history. My cousin John Mize also emailed you about the Suchy files? We cannot find them any where

We are searching for more info on our VA Stafford, prince Wiliam and Loudoun PEAKES

But I am looking for more history on Capt John, his son Henry Peake and Henry's son William B (who is Peake and Peek)

Between spellings and renaming counties it has been a journey. Planning a "field " trip to Polk Co and Va in the spring to research and hopefully meet a few cousins

Again, thank you so much for all of your work for the family history. I cannot believe how much I have enjoyed this journey

Peake family line
I am a Texas Peek from Peek line in Cedartown Polk Co and VA. Henry and Captain John are ggggggrandfathers.
I am new to tree hunting and trying to find more info about the series of John Peakes found in Loudoun, Stafford and Fairfax counties. (Not to mention the slew of Williams!)

Grave markers or sites where I can find dates, deeds or stories? I would be very grateful for any directions!

Thank you to all who have left crumb trails for me to follow.
I hope to travel to GA and VA this spring and dig up close! Ha.

Happy New Year to the Peakes, Peekes and Peeks....old and new

RE: Villmar, Germany
There were some Eisenbachs from Villmar that settled in Milwaukee that I was going to look at anyway. Probably related to yours. I'm looking at the different groups from Villmar in an attempt to find where my great, great grandfather was between 1835 when he was born and 1868 when he stood up for his older brother's wedding in Chicago. He was a Rossbach but I noticed they tended to settle in groups together. I'm hoping by locating those groups, I'll stumble across him and be able to find when he immigrated. I have a feeling he's in one of these places somewhere but that his name has been misspelled. I'm still waiting for the baptismal records from 1818 to 1861 to arrive so I wasn't able to check the 1820s.
