Laura B Anglin or Osborn - fag 42673245
Could her maiden name be Anglin? Marriage records shows name as Laura Belle Anglin .

She married George L Corn Jan 17, 1895 in Marion County, Arkansas.

Did she marry someone else????

Any information would be appreciated.

RE: Fausts
Michael and Lena may very well have had 7 children. I know of 5:

Caroline b ~1859
Francis Andrew b 1962
George Henry b ~1864
Mary b ~ 1869
Lewis b ~ 1872

I know my Dad had 2 or 3 siblings die in childbirth or as infants. That was a quite common occurrence in those days.

Thanks for your help on this. I almost have to discount the Amelia thing, except that this was information presented to the family by a law firm researching heirs to dispose of an estate. Seems like they'd do a better job of documenting the info, but my parents are long gone, and all I have is a piece of paper.

I will look into the Rootsweb site. Haven't had a lot of luck finding credible info there, but at this point, options are few.

RE: Fausts
Unfortunately, my subscription to has lapsed, and I have not looked at my documentation for several months, so I don't have my head around all of the details at this point.

My records show Christine Heine b about 1845, married to Henry Kleis 17 OCT 1867. She had 4 children. She married Michael Faust 21 AUG 1886 in Lebanon (Boone) IN. Michael had 5 children, including my g-grandfather (Francis Andrew, b 1862) - so the assumption is that Magdelena (Lena) is the mother.

However, some of the handwritten family notes include a reference to an "Ameilia". I cannot find any documentation for her in, FamilySearch, or other online sites.

About 30 years ago, a lawyer contacted my parents about an inheritance, and the documentation that the lawyer's office produced also referenced "Amelia".

Again, any insight you can provide would really be welcome.

RE: The Fausts

Thanks for the response (better late than never!).

Can you elaborate on the Mankedick connection? Is this "Lena" or another wife? If it is different, I must assume that it was after "Lena", who, according to handwritten family notes was my g-g-grandmother.

I would appreciate any documentation that you have and would be able share. This one branch of my tree is a head-scratcher.

I know you are interested in the Barnitz family and unfortunately I have nothing to contribute. But since Daniel J Barnitz married my ggg aunt, I was wondering if you had any information on the Fisher family. I only know the parents names. Also do you know the birthdates of Daniel and Maria's four children? Ann of Tampa, FL #46820446 in findagrave. Thanks!

Hello Sara,

This is the first time I've been back on this site since I joined in May. I was excited by your response. In 1999, I spent 6 weeks trekking through PA researching family. Among the many highlights were visiting the Historic Presbyterian Cemetary in Uniontown, the Marsh Creek Cemetary, attending services at the Marsh Creek Presbyterian Church and discovering the monument to Archibald in York. I'd love to chat and share family info, photos, etc.

I look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Mudersbach's
Hi Sara--no, you go ahead and keep them--nice job. I am sure you know that my brother Evert, Todd's Dad has passed away. Is it possible we can get a link added under Elbert and Preble for him. I can give you you whatever you need. Also one of my daughter's passed away last Sept and a friend did post it in Find a Grave--is it possible to attach that link to Elbert and Preble?
