Holt, Jeremiah # 33695319

I was looking over old WPA records and found a listing for this gentleman. In the WPA records his death date is shown as 1817. I read your information on his memorial and looked at probate records. I found him listed under Orange county in 1817 as deceased. Alamance was part of Orange until 1849. So the date of 1817 is more likely accurate. Also of note one of the administrators for his estate is listed as William Holt.

RE: Just a note
I will keep these names on file in the event that I run across some of your family in the future. Do you know any of the cemeteries where they are buried? Were they Mennonite or Quaker? Jean

Elizabeth Crook
In the 1870 census she was married to Emery Crook and they had two children and four other Sims in the house hold.Would this Elizabeth be Julia Sims mother from the 1860 census with Lewis Sims? The Atlanta Paper saying that E.B.Ward was arrested at his brother in law's "James Buchanan" points me to William A Sims.Do you know this Elizabeth's maiden name too? Thanks Sarah!

What was the name of the people that landed in Philadelphia in 1732?

RE: Just a note
Sarah - how do I get to your site? I am interested in your ancestors that came into Pa in 1732.
Is your site on Ancestry? Jean

RE: From Sarah
Sarah - I can't believe this. My husband's Schweitzer family arrive at the Port of Philadelphia from Switzerland also in 1732. Rotterdam was the port that everyone used. Berks Co was formed from parts of Lancaster and Chester county about 1752. Your ancestors and mine lived in the same area. I would love to swap some names if you are interested. I live about 30 miles from where they settled. Jean

Death date?
In regards to Elizabeth Kimball Cullum's memorial (76734898), are you sure that's the correct death date? I don't have any proof otherwise, but her daughter's birthdate is listed as 1700. Clearly something is off. Any ideas?

RE: Just a note
Hi Sarah.....Oddly, I went to school with an Albrecht here in West Chester. The family had a nursery or farm store outside of town. Or maybe it was a florist. This would be in the 1950's. I am betting that there are Albrecht cousins of yours still here.

Like you I married a guy with a history in Pa arriving in 1732 - Swisher/Schweitzer from Switzerland. Both of my parent were from the Waycross, Georgia area - both of their families arrived in either NC or SC in the mid-1700's. My dad and his two brothers came north from Waycross in the mid-1920's to work for Goodyear in Akron, Ohio. I was born in Michigan in 1941 when Goodyear sent my dad there because the company was manufacturing aircraft tires for the war. Because of the genteel ways of my parents I have always felt like a fish out of water living in the north.

I agree, wouldn't having afternoon tea together be delightful. My dad's family was Timmerman/Zimmerman m. Touchton. My mother's family was Cain m. Tison. They all moved down to Georgia from the Carolina's for the land lottery in the early 1800's. Who knows you may find one of my ancestors lurking in one of your branches. Let me know the names of your grandparents on both sides and where they lived. Albrecht may cross the Swisher root somewhere. But I am betting the one of your southern families crosses my Timmerman-Touchton - Cain-Tison root somewhere. I know that a Timmerman branch moved to Alabama and Texas.

Have a super-duper day. Jean

RE: Just a note
Hi Sarah - It's always nice to meet a sister in genealogy. I live in West Chester, Chester Co, and I belong to the Philadelphia UDC which meets in Hammonton, NJ. It is too expensive and too much trouble to try to have meeting in Philadelphia.

My parents were from Southern Georgia. Both families roots go to NC and SC in the mid-1700's. The land lotteries moved them south. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your husband - this is a whole new life for you. Let me know if you would like to meet someday for tea and a chat. I love hearing about the challenges of genealogy research that others have pushed through. Right now I am trying to figure out how to upload two dozen family trees from Ancestry to the LDS system.

Take care - stay safe - be well. Jean Swisher

Double dip - Johnson
I just noticed that your last name is Johnson. Any chance that Johnson was from Southern Georgia? My Johnson arrived in NC in 1766 - late moved to Georgia with the land lottery in 1822.

Just a "thank you."
Hi Sarah. You left flowers on the grave of Emma A Naylor Riley-Norris. She was the mother of my mother-in-law, Goldie Norris Swisher. Just curious about your interest or connection.

I also share you love of family history. I have 28 Revolution soldiers in my family in North and South Carolina. Several of my soldiers have been disqualified because of co-mingled info. There is also a snag with the documents for my mother's mother having three husbands. I am a member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. So far I have found 44 CSA. Take care - it is always great to come across a sister in genealogy. Jean Swisher, West Chester, Pa.

Jesse E. H. Jackson was my 3rd ggfather Since the name "Edward" comes through the line, I believe the "E" is Edward, plus I believe the "H" was Hall for his grandmother's maiden name. I researched this line many, many years before I was able to prove that Soloman H. Jackson was the son of Edward and Mary Pauline. I hae done genealogy for about 65 years and love it!
