Re: Photo request for Wm Jory and family at Mt Hope
I posted a photo to the 5 memorials, as you requested, but unfortunately it is just of an empty plot. You can read the details in the caption of the photo. Note that the plot map indicates that there were two other Jory's buried there, but they don't have Find-a-Grave memorials because they died after 1892 and Daryl Verstreate, who created the memorials (and tens of thousands of other memorials) from the Mt Hope Interment Records, only did it up through the records that end in 1892.

Picture of Raymond Sherman's Grave markers
May I have your permission to use the pictures you took of Raymond Carvell Sherman, Raymond Carvell Sherman, Jr. and Alise Williamson Sherman's grave markers on my WikiPage database?

Raymond, the elder was my uncle (my father's younger brother) and Raymond, Jr., of course was my cousin, born the same year I was, and died, sadly from ALS.

Thank you so much for taking these pictures.

RE: William Franklin Baker
He may well be there without a gravemarker; I just wondered since there are no other Bakers in the cemetery.

There was a listing before in that Pleasant Hill for someone who was actually buried in a cemetery of the same name in WV and I wondered if this was another. But with all the connections to Belmont, this is probably the right one. (Unless, of course, they meant Pleasant Ridge, but there aren't any Bakers there either!)

William Franklin Baker
What is your source for William Franklin Baker being in Pleasant Hill in Belmont County? I've photographed the whole cemetery and don't find him in my photos.

RE: re Samuel Hendricks
I didn't realize there was more to know about such listings. I do know a case in which one of my other Mennonite ancestors (Benjamin Rosenberger) did serve in a non-combatant sort of role (I've seen it referred to as "baggage wagon driver," or something like that - we'd say "logistics" today, I think) early on and then his father is recorded to have paid in lieu of service for both Benjamin and his brother later on. So, maybe there were a couple of phases in Samuel's participation. I'll keep my eyes open for any additional info.

As Samuel's direct descendent (hi, cousin!), you may have a document I've been looking for to prove his sister's place in the family. I've read that in 1765, Samuel's siblings deeded the entire family farm to him and that Christiana would be listed. I don't have any other "hard" evidence of her being a daughter of Henry Hendrick. Have you seen this deed?

re Samuel Hendricks
Hi, Elizabeth. I looked up the reference for Samuel's Revolutionary War service (PA Archives Sixth Series, Vol I, p 614) given in one of the SAR applications and can verify that his name appears as Private 1st Class, Company of Capt Benjamin Weevers, 1st Battalion of Philadelphia County Militia, using the spelling of the Captain's name given in the original record. He's one of my 5th g-granduncles. His sister Christiana is my 5-th g-grandmother.

How funny! Cathi Moore is one of my Stanyard cousins. She's a PA researcher and there are many Lambrights in PA.

Thank you, Liz. I have updated his memorial. My cousin is a Lambright descendant and I apparently entered this site before I started researching his family tree. Any idea who Nancy's parents are? I'd be interested in seeing how or if they connect to him.

Thanks again,

RE: Thanks!
It wasn't real readable, but from what I could tell, I thought that was it! It was in the area of the other Lambright family, so I assume since the dates matched that it is him!
I am glad to help anytime I can!
And grateful that the weather has given us days that we have been able to search!!

RE: Lambright
Check out the photo on John Lambright's memorial. It is hardly readable, but I think it is correct.

Cathi Moore
I found many Lambright headstones at Mt. Pleasant, Some readable, some not so readable, but none that looked like John. Sorry. There is a monument that says "Children of" But I can't read the rest of it.

Katzschke, Dresden

Two weeks ago I had a little vacation in Dresden and was able to walk around the Trinitatisfriedhof. I actually found a grave with the family name. look here. But, as you can see, there are no dates and while the cross looks older the stone is fairly new.
As I said before it is quite possible that his grave was reused. Which would mean that this is just another family with the same name. But the name is fairly rare (about 170 people have it). Maybe he was buried there and the grave stayed in the family, that is not unusual. If you want me to post it on Heinich Katzschkes memorial anyway tell me.

I never heard that Chuck Finkenbinder was related to the Stumpfs.

You might check out the Beaver County, Pennsylvania, Genealogical Society.

RE: Trinitatisfriedhof
Hello Liz,
The city archive said that all birth certificates pre 1876 are in the churches. So you either write to all churches in Oschatz or somehow find his parents adress and through this find the closest church.
There is a adress book online for Oschatz but it is from 1922.
I'll give you the link anyway.
K. in Oschatz.

RE: Trinitatisfriedhof
Hello Liz,
I first want to thank you for uploading that photo. You are the greatest :)

Then I need to confess that I'm very good at procrastinating. But I finally send a mail to the Oschatz city hall and asked where a birth record from that time would be found. Their website was not conclusive whether they have an city archive, or not. I'll tell you when and what they answer.

RE: Trinitatisfriedhof
Hello Liz

After I dashed your hopes of ever finding anything I want to give you some hope again. I do find graves that are older than 50 years but they are not that many.

The Blasewitzer Straße is a larger street. The Fiedlerstraße (where the cemetery is) parts from it. Circusstrase is today called Zirkusstraße and is southest of the cemetery. If you walk fast it's about 15 -20 minutes away. Copy the street names and 'Dresden' into google and it should give you the locations.

It is possible that birth records are at the city archive.
Archives try the mail adress. If necessary I translate a text for you to send them. I want to warn you though that the fees are not pretty, they want 20 euros for 30 minutes work.

For the photos:
Take this picture and add it to as many of these memorials as you want to. (If it is twenty times I'm happy already) If you want to do more I can also sent you photos of some of the stones.

Thank you

RE: Trinitatisfriedhof

Hello Elizabeth,

>>I see that you added most of the memorials for the Trinitatisfriedhof Cemetery in Dresden and am hoping you know a little about it. Is it a large cemetery with many graves?

It is not very large. With its 93.000 m²/ 111.227 yr² it is the fifth largest in Dresden. At a guess I would say there are about 20.000 graves at the moment.

>>Do you happen to know if there is an office there that contains records or was all the info lost in the war?

There is an office but I don't know whether they have records. -and if they have them they are probably not on a computer.-
It is possible that the grave is not there anymore. I don't know if you are aware of the fact that resting places in Germany are not eternal. People lease a plot for a certain time (varies from 10 - 20 years). Once that time is over the family can renew the lease or the plot will be leveled and re-used.
Beside that, the Trinitatisfriedhof was hit by many bombs in February 1945 and was severely damaged.

>>I am hoping to locate a grave and letters written to relatives in the late 1800s indicate this cemetery.
I can tell you now locating a grave will be hard enough but letters will be impossible since they are not archived.

>>If you still need some help uploading pictures I'd be happy to do it.
Wow, I'm floored. I never expected someone to actually want to. (Point to prove this .... I never uploaded the listings. But I've sent them in now.) If you really, really want to do that I sent you the general shot of the mass grave or for two or three of the plates. - It figures that when I finally decided not to add pictures someone comes around and wants to. - :)

RE: George Myers
Hi Elizabeth -

I did not know anything about them - established the memorial after taking pictures to record the grave stones. However, I have added the relationship to his wife Helena after verifying in the 1880 Census, 1910 Census, and 1920 Census. I did not find other relatives assoc. in the census except for a nephew, Frank Leisher in the 1910 census. These were all in Mercer Co, PA. If he and Helena are in your family, I will be happy to transfer the management of the memorials to you.
