RE: edit for Hiram Williar
Hi Rebecca,

I didn't want you to think I have forgotten about you. I have started updating the Williar family. It will take some time. The spelling causes problems. I have a lot of Williar's in my family.

RE: edit for Hiram Williar
Hi Becky,

I would like the information of Hiram Williar, however I am not a member of ancestry. Would you copy the information and send it as an attachment?

I am in the process of updating my memorials and working at St. John's so that will work out well.

Solomon Andrews
I found a death record for the Solomon Andrews who died in Aug of 1887 and it states that he was a widower. Since Hannah was still alive, this cannot be her husband. Therefore, I have severed the relationship between them and am still looking for the death date and burial location for Hannah's husband. Thanks again for your questioning.

Solomon Andrews
My information so far is that he and Hannah lived in Pennsylvania. Their son, Jeremiah lived in Hagerstown, Maryland. It appears that he died in Pennsylvania and Hannah went to live with Jeremiah and family after Solomon died. That would explain her dying in Maryland. I'm still working on it.

RE: Jeremiah Andrews
See I did it again. I said to you in my other message that Hannah was Jeremiahs wife instead of Catherine as Hannah is his Mother Ugh!!!.

RE: Jeremiah Andrews
Right now I just have my years of experience and my gut feeling that my William is the Son of Jeremiah and Hanna. This is why I am getting his death certificate in hopes of finding his parents names on it.

RE: Jeremiah Andrews
I meant to say Williams parents. I am juggling between emails with Jodie, messages with you and going back and forth to the trees so spmetimes I write the wrong thing. I almost did it again with the next sentence LOL. The William the others have in their tree, his parents are buried in Montgomery County and the Mother's name on her headstone is Letha. I found their son William in the 1900 census and my William also in the 1900 census and the William in Montgomery County has a daughter named Letha. So he can not be the William who is married to Elizabeth Brumbaugh. I just have to do better at reading before sending.

The first link is to the William in Montgomery Count and the second link is to my William in Franklin County.

RE: Jeremiah Andrews
On the last message you are correct it is Jodie. from something she said I asumed she didn't know William Garfields parents.

On the second message it is John Semler and Mary Margaret Andrews I am looking into. They were the Grandparents of my niece and nephew. The trees you refer to are wrong. Not wanting to sound as if I know it all but I have been doing this since 1979. The William they think they found and have as the husband of Mary Margaret I found still living in Montgomery County and that is where he died. He had a daughter named after his Mother. I found him living in Montgomery County at the same time my William was living in Franklin County with his wife and Mary Margaret was listed with them which confirms the info I have that Mary Margaret was born in Pennsylvania.

That is the one problem with a lot of peoples trees. All it takes is a one person to go with the first person they think matches and add that person to their tree and other people copy it and it snowballs.

I had that happen in my family. One sister added the wrong parents for my Great Great Grandfather but not being satisfied I kept investigating and found that the parents she added could in no way be the right ones. Sad thing is by the time I found the correct information about ten people had the wrong parents on their tree. I am getting the death certificate for my William in hopes his parents are listed.I believe them to be in your tree.

RE: Jeremiah Andrews
Thank you for the information. If you are certain beyond a doubt that that your Ida Mae's parents were Solomon and Hannah then I have a woman on Ancestry that is also descended from William Garfield through Ida Mae.I have been trying to help her make a connection to William Garfield's parents. I am going to the Maryland State Archives next week to get some death certificates and will be getting one for William Garfield and Mary E Johnson. I will put her in touch with you.

I am on the other hand looking for the parents of William T Andrews for my niece who is descended from him. I am pretty certain that his parents were Jeremiah and Catherine. I am hoping when I get the death certificates there will be parents names listed. Then my puzzle will be solved. Have you ever heard the name of Semler being connected to the Andrews of your line?
Thank you for your help

Jeremiah Andrews
I found a Jeremiah and Margaret V Andrews in the census for Washington County, Maryland. I have them in the 1870 census with the following Children:

Jeremiah Andrews 29
Margaret V Andrews 27
William Andrews 5
Charles E Andrews 4
Catharine A Andrews 3
David H Andrews 2
Jeremiah A Andrews 1

Since they have William as being 5 years of age I am assuming that William and Charles were the children of Jeremiah and his first wife.I am researching Williams family for my niece whose Mother was a Mary Margaret Andrews daughter of Willam. Can you shed any light on this.

Children of David & Laura Andrews
I put the information for Jeremiah Andrews and Mary Jane Phillips on their mother's memorial. I also sent an edit to the manager of the memorial for Etta Callaway to link to the parents. I searched (with the dates you provided) for obituaries for Jeremiah and Mary but did not find either one. You could call the cemetery and ask if they are buried there and if they are you could add a memorial for them. Thanks for the info.

RE: Solomon Andrew burial
Solomon's death record shows him buried in the Odd Fellow's Cemetery that year. The Odd Fellows purchased Lawnview, probably to expand. Bodies were moved from two older cemeteries, to Lawnview. This information is on the cemetery page, in Find A Grave. Solomon would have been one of those moved from the Odd Fellows Cemetery. I'll put this paragraph in his notes.

"Lawnview Cemetery was purchased by the Odd Fellows Cemetery Company in 1904.

Lawnview includes removals from Odd Fellows Cemetery (Diamond St. between 23rd & 24th Streets, Phila.) This cemetery was closed in 1951."

Your Message follows:
"RE: David Hafer
David Hafer, my 3x great-grandfather is buried in the Lutheran church cemetery in St. Thomas PA. Not in the town cemetery, as you have it. I was there in person, saw the stone, photographed it, etc.
I would like to have management of this memorial. Thank you for your consideration."

If you would like to have a memorial moved to another cemetery, please submit the request in the appropriate manner, along with a link to the cemetery to which you wish the memorial moved, and reliable documentation, such as an obituary, which indicates the 'correct' cemetery.
As to the transfer of management of the memorial, that would be outside of F.A.G. guidelines.

Rev Elmer Ross Andrews
Very glad to transfer his memorial to your care. He was among several hundred memorials I did for United Brethren preachers (which later became part of the Methodists) from some very good data, outlining careers of many of the pastors. I have gotten a lot of help from the memorials and people on this site, so I entered many memorials hoping to give back, and this was one. Happy to see the Rev's memorial go to family.

Could you provide documentation as to the location?
