Mary YOST Hess Death Notice
Thank you so much for sending me the newspaper article with her Death Notice. I have captured the specific area of the page with a great screen capture utility called screensnag from WOLFCODERS. I have posted the Death notice to her memorial # 8411106. Again, thank you so very much

Samuel Nichols will
Samuel apparently had some legal experience and know how to leave his estate so well thought out. It sure is great reading these old records. Kitty

Kitty Wilcox Talley
I have never heard of a debt distribution before. Samuel was very kind to his daughter not to give the debt to her which her husband owed. Samuel gave a distribution to all 5 living children [Abigail, Julia, Anna, Jane & Henry]. I wonder if any of them were unhappy because they may have received more had there not have been a debit owed to Samuel's estate. Jane's 2 children [Charles & Mary B] didn't seem to suffer from the debt.

Thought you would want to know you have 7 children listed for Samuel Nichols and also the same for his wife Wilsana on with John being listed twice. I thought this might be an error.

Pauline Mountain
I have corrected this error. My records show she was the daug. of Aaron Mountain and Juliann O'Neal. This incorrect parentage was probably submitted and done by Ancestory. My only connections to this family is thru Paul Logue who married Goldean Mower (Pauline's daug.).

Aaron Mountain
Even though the headstone of Juliana O'Neal Mountain shows her death in 1860, I have a Mountain Family History compiled by Floyd Swayzee in 1987. He states, "Daniel W. Mountain has papers written by his mother, Sadie Bennett Mountain, giving their family record back to Aaron Mountain. The following is shown: First Wife, Juliana O'Neal Mountain, Born Feb. 26th, 1828, Died Aug. 12th, 1865, Married Aaron Mountain Nov. 30th, 1848. This would account for the discrepancy between the date of her death and the birth dates of her two youngest children."
I have found that headstones are not always correct and therefore believe that the 1865 date is her date of death. I will add this info to Aaron's memorial.

Re-Albert Chapman
Hi, Your best & easiest way to see if there is an obit available for Albert,would be to contact the Punxsutawney Historical Society.

You can write them at-
Genealogy Department at P.O. Box 286, Punxsutawney, PA 15767 or you can email a research request at

OR you can call them and talk to a live person during these times- Genealogy hours are 1 to 4 PM Thursday through Sunday with extended earlier hours 10 AM to 1 PM Thursday and Saturday at 1-814-938-2555.

I do not have access to the 1920 Punxsy newspapers via the internet from home ,only earlier editions. There is a chance something was published in the Indiana County newspapers,depending on where and how he passed away. I can check those for you from here at home with a death date and location.

Hope this helps,

Rich Stackhouse
Alvoretta Greenly Musselman
Thank you for contacting me. That death date came from my records which need to be changed. You say that she died Oct 1902 yet I have a child, Margaret 'Maggie', born to William and his second wife, Sara Gower, Feb. 1902. Now I wonder if Maggie was also a child of Alvoretta and Alvoretta died possibly from birth complications. She had had two children by 1900, one living.

Hi Bronwyn,

My gedmatch number is A448633. I ran your great aunt's kit, but there wasn't a match. :-(

Don't know if you saw my Vansickle line. My line descends from one of the Hunterdon Co. NJ branches who left that area in the 1770's.

Re: Margaret VanSickle
Hi Bronwyn,

It had been some time since I visited Margaret's tribute. Thank you for pointing out that I neglected to change the information regarding her mother's maiden name. My records also show that she was indeed Mary Shultz, and not Bussing, as shared with me previously.

Unfortunately, I have no information on Mary's ancestry. There were just so many by that surname in the area that I did not research her family further. By the way, Jeremiah VanSickle's grandmother was also a Shultz, and Jeremiah's aunt, Margaret VanSickle, married John Shultz.

I wish I had more on the Shultz family to give you. I probably could better with any questions you have on the VanSickle family, but I'm happy to do what I can to help.

Henry Augustus Kippen
do you have a cemetery reference for Henry Kippen?

Added by Lester Letson on Feb 19, 2015 2:31 AM

Your Find-A-Grave entry 126665411
Hello, Browyn!

About two years ago I added an entry for George Kippen (1819-1868). It was #90499866. I later transferred it to Kitty Wilcox Talley.

If, after reviewing the two entries, you are convinced that they reference the same person, you may want to delete your entry. There is ample historical evidence that these two George Kippens were one and the same.

Lisbeth Blue Long
Charles Wilburn, Deer Park Cemetery
All your effort is greatly appreciated. Charles Summerfield Wilburn was my husband's great-grandfather. He was married to Roda (Rhoda) Ellen Kelley and they had five young children (the oldest was 14) when he passed. We knew where he lived and approximately when he passed from his children's ages and census records showing his wife as widow, however, we had no idea he was killed by a train. Can you tell me how you came across his obituary? His widow in 1923, many year after raising their children, married Christian Andrew Whitehair. Her death certificate from 1936 indicates she was also buried at Deer Park but there seems to be no record of her burial at the cemetery.
