I believe Catharine may be daughter of George Wise and Anna (Kreps) Creps. Are you related and do you have any info about this?

Thanks so much for information on Alice. This info has been added to her site. A search of Greenwood Cemetery in Council Grove was made for grave but was told she was not there. I will resubmit request--maybe she is in McDiffett plot?
Will See. Pat

Walter, Are you related to Mary? She is my grandmother's first cousin. William H. Shaw was her mother's brother. I have a picture of her and her brother Frank and another I think with her father and brother and my grandmother's sister, Mabel Shaw.

RE: Distant Cousins?
Thanks so much Walter. I'll join the Facebook site. Below is my Hilbish line.

My Great-Grandfather, Benjamin Franklin West (1894-1968) married Ruby Mary Hilbish (1901 - 1971) on August 21, 1921 in Tarrant County Texas. Here is information on Ruby's line. Both are buried at Bluebonnet Hills Memorial Park in Colleyville, TX.

Father: Arthur Charles Hilbish
b. 1875 Rock Creek, Wabaunsee, Kansas
d. 1950 Grapevine, Tarrant, Texas

In 1899 he married Ada Matilda Forbes (1878 - 1955). Both are buried in Grapevine Cemetery, Grapevine, TX.

Arthur's father is Charles Hilbish

d. 1912 Rock Creek, Wabaunsee, KS

In 1875 he married Mary Elizabeth Bunger (1856 - 1940). Both are buried at Chalk Cemetery, Wabaunsee, KS.

Charles's father is Jacob Hilbish
b. 1817 Pennsylvania
d. 1893 Colfax, Davis Missouri

In 1839 he married Susana Pauling (1819 - 1897)in Union County, PA.

Jacob's father is Henry Hilbish

Adam's father is Christian Hollowbush

Christian was married to Catherine Margaret Bickhart. Both are buried at the Hollowbush Burial Ground in Montgomery, PA.

That is as far back as I have them, and the data might not be 100% accurate but should be in the ballpark. Hope this helps!

Distant Cousins?
Hi Walter. I come a Hilbish line and it looks like our paths cross. :) Just wanted to say hello and let you know that you have a number of "cousins" in North Texas and Durant, Ok.

Take care fellow Hilbish.
