RE: Death Certificate
You are quite welcome - always little surprises pop up here and there to keep us on our toes. I appreciate your research - our lines bump into each other through my Barrick line and I think a couple other extended lines.

Actually, I went back and got the actual people I was supposed to get. Totally got the wrong stuff the first time. I'll have them uploaded in a minute, but only John and Susan are on the stone.

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy
==========================

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you.
Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

BTW, my husband and I are flying back to PA and my husband, 2 friends and I will be taking pictures of all the plaques in the Old Mausoleum; therefore, if you want to request any, the photo requests will be fulfilled first.

RE: Dunkelberger Transfers
Yes, the Dunkelbergers are my direct line...they are also my 5th gr-grandparents. I believe our paths have crossed on this family a few years ago...you've done wonderful work on them.

My line is Clement Sr, Clemens, Solomon, John, Wm. Penn, Viola (Snider), Newton (Snider), me.

I'm in the process of proving Clement, Sr. as my Revolutionary Patriot for DAR.

Yes, please send me your information...I'll be more than happy to add it to link the families in the other cemeteries. There might be some information that will help me.

Thank you for your continued work.

Landis transfers
Hello Ed,

It is my pleasure to make the transfers. Landis and Shively/Sheibleys intermarried along several generations in the early years. Do you have a copy of Laura Willhide Johnson's book? I call it my Sheibley Bible and as far as finding all of my Sheibley/Shively ancestors I have only scratched the surface.
Also thanks for the photo of Simon Sivley and his wife.Please let me know if there is more to be added. May I use your photo on my Ancestry site? I have these memorials because Dee transferred them to me after an inquiry I made. Her name should remain as the originator of the memorials. Let me know if you want any more.

And yes I am related to the first Peter Shively #64472989 who came to America in 1749 and was forced into redemption by his father. My line is from his son John Peter 1793-1871.

Guess we are distant cousins.
Good luck Cathy

Thanks you.

I noticed the stone because my husband is a descendant of Nancy (Landis) Miller.

Fells Church Cemetery
I have photographed this cemetery and belong to the Historical society that is housed in the old fells church. According to the president some of the oldest Fell and Beazell graves are actually underneath the add-on done to the church there are no stones available to photograph. And I have a lot of Anderson stones but not an Ephraim and the only Alexander is an infant. I think if those graves were marked the stones are long gone. Kathi

John Georg Hohenshell
Hi Professor,

I'm trying to figure if the info on this page is what's written on the tombstone (I pasted it at the end). I'm particularly interested in the "Stone Arabia" portion, as that would connect this person to an ancestor I am trying to tie down in the Montgomery County NY area. I have conflicting information about this person's mother and her spouse, but I believe that she was indeed from that area of New York, and married to a "Hochenschild", and went on to live in Pennsylvania. Any confirmation of this grave information would be appreciated.

I seem to have found him at Good's Cemetery, but I need to ask the memorial creator to correct the spelling of his name. Can you confirm whether I have the right person?

Photos were taken with and without flowers for both stones. All names and dates were added to FG. When I am done I leave the grave as I find it. This cemetery always has a problem with accumulated dead cut grass. Regards Lynn

cemetery photos
Hi Prof. I have added photos to a couple of your memorials. I then went through your memorials and added photos for ones that are in cemeteries I have photographed. I can tell you your standing requests in Fells Church and Long Run are not going to be able to be filled because either the stone is illegible or no longer there or the grave has always been unmarked both of these cemeteries have been photographed. In Fells Church it is believed that a handle full of the oringinal Fell's buried there are under the additon to the original building. The Rostraver Area Historical Society The President is Ray Popp he could help you with the Fell's. Kathi

RE: Joseph Kissinger
You're welcome. I've found the grave and will get the photo request taken care of. I just have to wait till we have early morning sun because that's what's going to be necessary to get it to be readable.

Laura Jean Salisbury Witter
Elizabeth Gutshall & Henry Lay
I am a descendant of the Gutshalls. I ran into conflicting information on the marriage of Elizabeth Gutshall and Henry Lay.

Trying to determine which Elizabeth Gutshall is correct:

Elizabeth Gutshall, born 13 Dec 1821, daughter of John Gutshall Jr. & Elizabeth Braun Wirt Gutshall

OR

Elizabeth Gutshall, born 5 Jan 1819 & died 27 Mar 1905, daughter of Solomon Gutshall & Margaret Waggoner Gutshall, Find A Grave# 26052247.

Do you have any documentation to confirm which one is correct?

Thank you,

Laura Salisbury Witter
