If anyone is interested in Doan/Doane/Done genealogy, please consider joining the Doane Family Association. Information can be found here:|
Some names of interest in my own family line include Lowther, Thistle, Milne, Henderson, Zirkle, Tedrow, Briix, and Blythe, my great-grandparents' names. My husband's family names include Doan, Corder, Dokken, Tangen, Goff, Allen and Peterson. Please send corrections/ updates; I want things to be accurate.
My grandmother, Wanda Zirkle Jilka, and great-aunt, Veda Zirkle Vickery, compiled a book commonly referred to as "The Red Book," "Zirkle Branches 1725-1978, Yesteryears and Yesterdays." There are several copies for sale if anyone is interested. It mainly outlines the history of two Zirkle/Zerkel branches which left VA, went to OH, then settled in Richland, Shawnee Co, KS.

"A Visit to the Gravesite"
Your Tombstone stands among the rest,
Neglected and alone.
The name and dates are chiseled here,
On polished marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care,
Though it is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist,
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you,
In flesh and blood and bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago,
I wonder if you could have known,
Would spread among the ones you left
In all the seeds you've sown.
I wonder how you lived and loved?
I wonder if you ever knew?
That someday I would find you in this spot,
And come to visit you?

You list Johann and Susanna Brandli as his parents. Family info shows his parents as Heinrich and Clara (Duri) Brandli. Will you share the source of the parent info you've discovered?
|E. Sweeney||RE: Zirkle|
Glad to help!
She is in a row of Pattersons; I don't know if that rings any bells for you or not...

Thank you for adding her links!

I know it is really hard to sort everything through, but with consistent effort one can usually come to a good conclusion.
We find the story of Elizabeth Brick Hoover particularly fascinating. The Bricks were German Catholics, settled in Ontario, and later moved on to St. Cloud, Michigan, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and other places. But Elizabeth, working in the harvest at a Mennonite home, attracted the attention of Jacob Hoover, a Mennonite boy. She was baptised, became a member of the Mennonite church, they were married and he was ordained into a deacon in the Rainham Mennonite congregation. They had eleven children. A very large number of descendants remain, principally in the "horse and buggy" groups we know as the David Martin and Orthodox Mennonites in Ontario, and the Hutterites in Minnesota and Australia.

|Peter Hoover||More on Elizabeth Brick|
I just checked out the records and it is totally obvious that Elizabeth was not a daughter of Michael and Margerethe Brick of Rainham Township, but of Peter and Barbara (Eckert) Brick of New Prussia, Wilmot Township, Waterloo County, Ontario.
Michael Brick would only have been 8 years older than Elizabeth and his wife was only 3 years older of Elizabeth, obviously not her parents.
This marker of Elizabeth Brick Hoover at the Rainham Mennonite cemetery should be linked to Peter and Barbara (Eckert) Brick who are buried and have a Find a Grave marker at:
May the peace of Christ be with you,

Greetings! I was a bit astonished by find my great-grandmother's entry on the Rainham Mennonite page, and to discover that her father was Michael Brick. We had, somehow, thought she was the daughter of Peter Brick (a brother to Michael). But it also makes perfect sense because Nicholas (Michael's son) was the hired man at Elizabeth and Jacob Hoover's farm.
Would you be able to tell me where you get the information that presents Michael and Margarethe (Schuh) Brick as Elizabeth's parents?. I would appreciate hearing from you.

Becky, I have spent the entire day just looking for connections and well, I don't think you and I together could possibly get this all together. No kidding. The families that went to Ohio from Virginia had already been in Pennsylvania and there are marriages way back there. Within a couple of generations in Ohio, I think they had all married into each other. To name a few, Clem, Walborn, Straub,Nehs, Snapp,Buroker, Wolgamuth, Zirkle, and even more. I already have 60,000 on my tree and this is most likely to be just as big if not bigger. So, I think I will pass too. I must admit it would be awesome and I may add a few but not all of them. There are so many different spellings that I don't think anyone is going to just stumble across all of this though. Gvie me a little time before I just quit though. lol

I just realized you updated all of her info here except her name. Sorry about that :).
|Yvonne Williams||Julius L Swan|
The profile that is attached as his wife is incorrect. The name is wrong and it's not an actual burial. It was created by someone who didn't have her facts.
Here are some family search records with the correct name and family info.
Her find a grave for her actual grave is below. I'm not sure if the two can be merged, but the one connected to her husband is for an unknown burial.
Let me know if you need other info :).

As you can see on his memorial page I created the memorial from the headstone I found in Montrose Cemetery, Baldwin County, Alabama.
