J, I created a memorial for James Jr. and I thought I would ask before just transferring it if you would like it since you have his parents?

Your photo
By the way, that is an absolutely beautiful picture of you and your mother, in your profile! Just lovely.

RE: Harry Edwin Sadler
Tsk, don't say such a thing! I'm not too far behind you. So you have some Nicholson in you! It's great that you know your line hails from England. My Nicholson line is impossible to figure out. There are so many of us that have researched it, and we all end up in the 1700's in Pennsylvania. Can't get back any further.
Some say they were from the Isle of Skye, but that can't be proven. I wish my father (Samuel Nicholson) would do the Clan MacNichol DNA project, but he's apprehensive about putting his DNA out there for anyone to get a hold of. He is my last link, so I'm hoping he does before he is also with the ancestors! ;)

It is odd to think though that your line comes from England but my line came from who knows where, and yet these relatives lived side by side in Fayette County.

Keep in touch Jim, great to talk to you,

RE: Harry Edwin Sadler
I agree with you, that is must be a typo on the age. Would you like me to transfer this to you?
Just let me know,

Hi, Respectfully ... I manage over 70,000 records on here. If you want a change to one please go to that record and hit the edit tab in the upper right hand corner and make your request from there. That way I don't have to do a search which takes time. :-)

Thanks, Russ

All I had to go by was the Pennsylvania, Veterans Burial Record. If you are convinced he is not buried there, I will change to Unknown Burial.

Thanks for the update, Bill

This is the information I have about Christian Swartz.

This information is taken from the following website

#666 Petition of May 1848 of CHRISTIAN SCHWARZ, a native of Eiseldom(?), Kingdom of Bavaria, Germany, where he was born about 1806; migrated to the United States, and arrived at the port of Charleston, South Carolina January 1, 1833; from there moved to Pennsylvania and has been a resident in Fayette county for the last 7-8 years and upwards of 10; sworn statement also filed 1857, and was about 42 years of age in 1848 on additional statement.

RE: Christian Swartz, Fayette County, PA
Just wondering, but do you have any documents stating he was born in Munich? I found his declaration of intent to become an American citizen and it stated he was from Einselthum in the Rheinland- Pfalz.

P.S.S. Here's a heads up. I changed "Mahalia" to Mahala Wilmarth. Thanks ~ Jo

RE: Wilmarths @ Maple St Cemetery
J ~ I located all of the Wilmarths you mentioned except for Mahalia. I created memorials for all 5, including Mahalia, just so you can post the photo until I get her figured out.

I am so very grateful for your generosity. Sincerely ~ Jo

I will look into the other grave sites mentioned and get back to you ASAP. Again, thank you tremendously ~ Jo

Phil Swan
John Swan b 11 Mar 1721
John & Eliz Lucas Swan were my 4th grt-grandparents. John's parents were John & Eliz Green Foster. John b.~1696 in Maryland and d 5 Jun 1727; Eliz Green Foster b.27 Jun 1683 d. bef. 17 Aug 1750 was the widow of John Foster and they had 5 boys. John Swan and Eliz Green Foster Swan had only John, Jr. and sister, Comfort Swan b. 5 Jul 1725. Marr. & baptism records at St. Barnabas' Episcopal Church in Upper Marlboro, Prince George's County, Maryland. Comfort married Arthur Thompson ~1740 in St. Barnabas' Episcopal Church. After John Swan died, widow Eliz marr. Robert Brown 11 Dec 1732. My YDNA analysis shows that I am a descendant of Edward Swann of Eagleton Plantation in Maryland. We believe that John Swan b~1696 was the son of James Swann, Sr.b~1668, who was a son of Edward b~1630 in Kent County, England. We are actively looking for another male Swan descendant of John & Eliz Lucas Swan to test DNA. Can you recommend someone? Please write my email for MUCH more information. Regards,
Phil Swan

John Noe and Elizabeth Dawson
I'm a bit confused- the same photo has been added to them in two different cemeteries- where are they really? You have them in Jacob's Evangelical Lutheran but it looks like a Becky Kingan added the same photo for them in Lutheran Cemetery, Chalkhill.

Re: Caroline Shotwell

I originally obtained her information from the folks at Genealogical Journeys in Time (Strawn family History), years ago (late 90's). I'd have to dig through files to see when and where the name Mary came from. I don't have much of anything other than a name with regard to Caroline; my line descends from Joel's brother Amos.

I have seen many a case where someone has been named one way, but identified another way in every record and even their tombstone subsequent to their birth record; my great grandfather is a perfect example. He was born John Frederick, first and middle names, but every record subsequent to his birth record is Frederick Carl, including his tombstone/burial record. Carl was his naem given at his christening. That's not to say Caroline is in fact Mary Caroline. Someone years ago may have assumed or mistakenly merged two individuals into one. Thanks for the information, I'll have to revisit that line, research and update.

Griffin's Fayette County
I just added the daughter of William P and Mary Griffin. Her obituary says she is the great-great-great-granddaughter of Sarah Ball the maternal aunt of George Washington. I don't know which parent has this ancestry, but I thought you might want to check it out. I am related to the Ramsey's in this area and while researching them, I happened across this. I didn't know if you were related, but if you are, this is something interesting to know.
